Meet Our Team


Hana is a Philly native recently returned from 3 years in Peace Corps. Long time dog lover, Hana grew up with dogs and cats and is honorary pet sitter to family and friends now that she’s back home. You can find her biking around South Philly, running on the river trail, making dinner with friends, or watching movies with her two cats China and Titu.   



Jon has been working with animals since 2003, providing him over 15 years of relevant experience. He has worked as a dog walker, in animal hospitals, animal shelters, and more. Most recently he worked with the PSPCA, where he helped in numerous aspects of animal care including providing medication, drawing blood, administering vaccines, and more. He currently volunteers with the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and he has three cats of his own. He enjoys exploring the city and making new animal friends. He is originally from New York and enjoys knitting and drawing in his free time.


Recently relocating from Jersey City, NJ, Alex brings over 10 years in the dog walking and pet care business to Philadelphia. He’s a certified dog trainer but with a clientele that’s included chickens, bunnies, community cats, and more, his experience extends beyond man’s best friend. Alex is also an avid soccer fan and youth coach and drinks coffee like there's no tomorrow. 


“I joke that my nanny was a Samoyed, & I came out of fourth competitive retirement in kickboxing wearing ‘Raised By Wolves’ on my trunks. This is because from birth I had a Samoyed, Lady Natasha (Nika), who was one of the major constants in my life. She moved from Ireland to the States with me when I was 10. She lived to be a month away from 20 & I was 19 still in undergrad. She took care of ME.


I can’t remember when last I did not have (multiple) pups & currently I have three rescues, ages 2-7. I historically have BIG pups in the pack but I love all breeds. Am a self- described dog nerd. When not walking or catering to the pack I’m trashing muayThai kickboxing & personal training (which I have done for 30 years). 

Avid traveler & half gypsy from Ireland originally I have spent a great deal of my life in the States & more in South East Asia, predominantly Thailand. Philadelphia has been my home longer than any other city oddly enough. I look forward to meeting your pup!


Corissa has two spoiled cats at home, and she’s eager to shower some of that love and attention on your pups. She’s a freelance writer, avid reader, amateur gardener and, of course, animal lover. Her first instinct at any party is to find the household pet and befriend them. Originally from Ohio, she’s looking forward to getting to know Philly by way of dog walks.


Alexa has worked with pets for years and has experience walking and boarding dogs through her work at the Philadelphia Pet Hotel. She provided them with food, water, cleanliness, medication, several walks a day, playtime, & plenty of love! She also house sat for many families throughout the years & provided care for home & animals. She grew up with a golden retriever/shepherd. “All animals are truly the best & I love caring for them!”



James has had dogs his entire life--"I love them!" He paid for his food and fun in college by walking them through out college and enjoyed every second of it. The opportunity to not only spend time with the furry lovable creatures but to walk them as well? Seems like a no brainer.  He can't wait to meet your pup and treat them with the same love and respect he would his own. 



Lev was born and raised in South Philadelphia along with a myriad of animals. Growing up he helped take care of two guinea pigs, three dogs, four cats, and five turtles. After a life of dedicated musical training he's ready to pursue one of his passions and help care for animals, and he will treat your fur-babies to walks, pets, and lots of love. 



Chris is a passionate animal lover, freelance artist, lover of cuisine, and father of one fabulous cat. Having been around dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, horses (and in one case a peacock) his entire life, he leapt at the opportunity to walk these furry friends professionally. Your fur baby will always have a friend in Chris, he’ll make sure of that.


Jennie is originally from Baltimore and has been living in Philly for 4 years. She has always been passionate about caring for animals and has grown up with cats and dogs of all shapes and sizes. Jennie currently works full time as a scientist but is hoping to further her career and passion by becoming a veterinarian. Right now she cares for a little kitty named Noodle in south philly.
