Rosie

Unconditional love...that's
what dogs are.

Rosie

When I was just a little girl my mother would stumble across a “stray” every now and again, and somehow they always ended up at our house. What began as one was eventually three, and before we knew it, six furry friends had practically taken over the place. Sure it can be crazy at times, but I wouldn’t change it for the world!

Jessica

Prancing Pooches
began as a dream.

Jessica

Being around animals and seeing them happy fulfills my day. So it only seemed natural when I decided to start my own pet sitting business. It was a pivotal moment in my life and involved some serious soul-searching beforehand, but I honestly couldn’t enjoy doing anything more. It feels like this is what I was always meant to do. That it’s what I’m here for.

Mama

Strays and rescues are my specialty;
just ask my husband.

Mama

I had the blessing of “owning” my first dog when I was 17 years old. Since then I’ve adopted over ten more! These critters are a huge part of my life. They’ve demanded a bit of sacrifice throughout the years, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Each and every one has been special to me in their own way, and I cherish all the memories.

Spencer

My mother says I was
raised by wolves.

Spencer

And I still can’t tell if she’s kidding or not. I’m Jessica’s brother, though I tend to consider myself to be a manager of sorts. Taking care of dogs comes as second nature to me, so this job also doubles as my exercise regimen. Sure these four-legged friends are pretty awesome, but now if I could just find one that played video games too…

Matt

I'd like to think I'm the brains
behind the operation.

Matt

But I’d be the only one convinced. I’m Jessica’s husband, and I’m aware that everybody knows who really runs the show. My position in the pack is usually “behind the scenes,” but on occasion you may find I’m the guy taking your friendly beast for a stroll. What can I say? We’re dog people. It’s what we do.

The Kid

They keep telling me one
day this'll all be mine.

The Kid

But I’m not in any hurry! My name’s Tristan, and I guess you can say I’m a “walker in training.” I love being around the pooches (especially when I get to ride my RipStik at the same time). Not too bad for a summer job, if I may say so myself. But one thing’s for sure, my house is never a dull place to be. These fur-beasts are everywhere…even on my bed!

Rachel

Hands down, I'm definitely
a dog person.

Rachel

I’ve been working with Prancing Pooches for three years and still haven’t had enough! After beginning a career in the correctional system, I can’t tell you how nice it is to hang out with these little guys after a long shift. The way I see it, I’m just working for the state now so I can retire young and be a full-time dog walker.

Gemma

Cats and dogs
are my passion.

Gemma

After all, who else can you always depend on? Pets love us faithfully and unconditionally, every single day. I grew up with a herd of cats and beautiful German Shepherd, but currently just have Boris; a Russian blue kitty who thinks he’s a dog! I volunteer at shelters and rescues, but my ultimate goal is to one day open a cat café to help feline friends find forever homes.

Samantha

Some people call me
the crazy cat lady.

Samantha

And I’m proud of it! My family had a slew of dogs and cats while I was growing up. And as anybody who’s ever owned a cat knows, they often show up at the door with other creatures as trophy. So I got used to rescuing injured chipmunks, squirrels, birdies…rabbits! It didn’t matter that my furbaby had brought it home; each little life is precious and I couldn’t help but try.

Brianna

Every animal
deserves love.

Brianna

No matter how big or little, furry or scaly! I’ve cared for all sorts of pets throughout my life, and not just cats and dogs either. Snakes and birds, rabbits and horses…the list goes on! In fact, most of my free time is spent at the farm grooming, training, and caring for my horse, Ty. He’s an 11-year-old “​off​ ​the​ ​track​”​ Thoroughbred who acts like a big dog; so smart, loyal and full of personality!
