Max
Private Walker

pronouns : he/him

Hi! My name is Max. I’m a fun loving animal enthusiast with a passion for adventure. I believe every dog has a place, and there’s a place for every dog.

I have been working professionally with animals for 6 years. My career started in dog daycares, then carried me to the veterinary industry. And now, it's brought me here to my dream job! For as long as I can remember, I have aspired to be a dog walker, and I couldn’t be happier now that I’m finally following my passion.

I’m very excited to get to know you and your dogs. I hope to build a strong and lasting relationship with all of your furry friends, and to explore all the best things about this beautiful city. Especially places to run, hike, and grab a coffee (and watch the Food Network sometimes too!).

I look forward to meeting you all!
