DOGWALKER HAPPY TAILS
“Working for Dogwalk was by far my favorite job I’ve ever had! Not only the flexibility, the COUNTLESS cute animals obviously, and the time active and outdoors, but most especially Beth’s kind-hearted, down to earth nature made this my favorite job and favorite boss lady. This is definitely a job for someone with a lot of attention to detail who really loves to walk! I was so sad to leave when life took me elsewhere, but I’m always grateful I got to work with a great team in a great city with great animals. 12/10 recommend! The greatest antidote to the 9-5 office grind.” M.K.D. dogwalker 2015 – 2016
