Hi! My name is Lauren. I was born and raised in Long Island, NY. I have a beautiful Shih-Tzu Maltese mix named Daisy and a Maine Coon cat named Max! They are truly the light of my life. Animals mean the absolute world to me. I moved to the Upper West Side a few years ago to pursue my dream as a successful celebrity make up-artist. I studied Photography and Creative Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I am currently looking forward to further my creative palette in Make-Up Artistry and Special FX at the MUD Make-Up Designory Academy in Manhattan. I have always desired to become a dog walker because there is nothing more euphoric than being around dogs all day! It is so rewarding. Each and every pup that I meet is extremely special to me and treated as if they are my own. I’d like to consider myself especially patient, punctual, calm, and trustworthy. As a classic New Yorker, I adore spending time in Central Park, Museums, Theatre, and the Metropolitan Opera. I am also a major advocate of environmentalism. I look forward to establishing a wholehearted connection with your beloved babies!
Hi! My name’s James. I grew up in Stony Brook, Long Island with a very cute and disabled Wheaton Terrier, named Bromley. Now, I live in Forest Hills with my Wire Hair Fox Terrier, Scranton (an homage to "The Office.") I attended Rutgers University, where I received a BFA in Acting, and have since performed in tv, film, and theatre. My other passions are caring for animals and being outdoors, so I’m happy that I have a job that allows me to do both! I’m friendly, attentive, responsible, and motivated to do the best job that I can. When I’m not working or playing with my dog, I like reading, writing, and exploring New York. I’m very approachable and am always happy to help! I look forward to meeting your pup and promise to love and care for them as I would my own dog.
Hi, my name is Lauren. I was born and raised in the fast paced Garment District in NYC. I grew up with the privilege of being able to visit my Grandmother’s house and taking care of her sweet half Black Labrador, half Dalmatian named Duke, and a small spunky chihuahua mix named Bandit. From a tender age I’ve felt a great love and appreciation for animals. After wanting a dog for many years, my dreams finally came true when I adopted two Chihuahua and German Shepherd mix boys named Charlie and Foster four years ago. I’ve never been more happy than when I’m with my adorable, silly and loving dogs that I consider part of my family. The tremendous love I have for those two little guys is the reason why I’ve looked into dog walking. I’ve always worked in other fields but continued to find myself at my happiest when I’m with my two dogs. From our walks to our playtime I love giving my dogs the uttermost respect, attention and love. Outside of caring for dogs, I am pursuing a degree in teaching. I’m a very patient and nurturing person not only with children but with animals as well. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry friend and create a beautiful bond we will never forget.
Hi! My name is Cassie. For the majority of my life I lived in Ridgefield, NJ. The first dog I ever had was named Damien, his breed was full Rottweiller; later on when he passed away I decided to keep my tradition and adopt another Rottweiler named Jagger. I continued to embrace my love for dogs and adopted a poodle named Romeo who I currently live with. Later on I became an owner to a Siberian Husky named Milo. My current level of degree in education is college level. As of now, I’m going for my associates degree in Childhood Education. I will continue to further my education in Business Management to pursue my career goal as an owner of a Daycare Center. I believe I’m an excellent dog walker and MixyPaws Team member because of the amount of experience I’ve had in the past with multiple breeds of dogs. My entire life I’ve always owned at the very least one dog. My hobbies consist of cooking, dancing, and skateboarding. I’m very active and always ready for what’s next and cannot wait to meet your pup!
Hello my name is Alexander and I was born and raised in New York City. I’ve only ever had one very special dog in my life; his name was Uzi - a German Shepard / Pit Bull mix full of love and affection. He gave me his best years until he was too old to walk and I won’t ever forget him. Along with Uzi, I have cared for a number of other dogs and cats. I started interning with animals in high school, spending long days at the pet hospital as part of my internship. After the animal hospital I began working with them. At this point in my life I am currently trying to finish a fictional novel I am working on and cultivating my craft as an artist and an author. I find the best way to obtain creativity is to learn more about the world and society. To walk around our city and see it for myself is only made better by having a little furry companion coming along for the adventure! I am very happy to have been working with animals for the past three years. I love understanding and meeting new animals and teaching them new things!
Hi! I’m Joe. I was born in Queens but raised in Brooklyn. I have been living in the Bedford-Stuyvesant pretty much my whole life and I don’t plan on leaving New York anytime soon! My very first dog was a black Labrador Retriever named Shadow; he was a rescue we brought home and fell in love with. I currently have a blue nose Pit Bull named Bella who is my big baby! I’ve had her for close to 7 years now and have enjoyed every day and experience I’ve had with her; she is basically my child. I plan on going to college to study Zoology to further my experience with many different exotic animals, as well as still being able to work with dogs. I wanted to become a dog walker because everyone loves their pets but not everyone has enough time to look after and take care of them with their very busy schedules; I am grateful to be able to help provide care for New Yorker’s furry family members while they are away. Working with MixyPaws has been a great fit for me, as I have a lot of patience with the dogs and I treat and care for each dog as if they were my own. Most of my hobbies are sports related; I’m a die-hard Knicks fan and basketball is the only thing that could ever match my love for dogs. I am excited to meet you and your furry friend! I will treat them with respect and give them nothing but love.
Hi! My name is Kevin, I am French and I grew up near Paris, surrounded by a German Shepherd, a Dachshund, and a Labrador Retriever, all adopted at the French ASPCA. After getting my Diploma, I went to the School of Non-Commissioned Officer in the French Army, where I was sergeant for 6 years. I moved to the Upper East Side with my wife, and my plan, in addition to walking and caring for pups with MixyPaws, is to become a certified dog trainer here. In my free time, I enjoy going to concerts or games and I also volunteer at NY Cares and The Central Park Conservancy. I am an animal lover who has been surrounded by dogs his entire life, I know how to take care of them. I am patient, highly motivated and punctual. I can't wait to explore the city with your furry best friends!
Hi! I'm Alexa, born and raised in Queens. Though I've never owned a dog of my own (tragically) I did grow up taking care of other people's dogs all the time. Most of my experience comes from taking care of the dogs (and cats!) at the shelter, North Shore Animal League America, where I used to work. It was during that time that I decided that my future had to be working with animals in one way or another. I took to working with the trainers, learning everything that I could and decided to take my education a step further and go to school for dog training. I completed my training around the same time I graduated from college with a degree in forensic psychology. My goal is to continue working with dogs and learning as much as I can, with the hopes of one day owning my own dog training business, with a focus on service and therapy dogs. My passion has always been with dogs; every dog I meet is the best dog in the world. I'll take the time to get to know each of your pups with patience and respect because pets are family and I can't wait to be best friends with all of them!
Hi! I’m Owen. I grew up in Philadelphia, PA. As a kid my parents loved dogs. We had a German Shorthaired Pointer named Gretchen, two Golden Retrievers named Boog & Biscuit, and a Golden Doodle named Leo. I’ve always loved learning. I finished high school two years early and am currently pursuing a degree in Music Performance. I would like to take my love for music performance, writing and composition and develop it into a career in the arts, wherever that may take me. I became a dog walker because I’ve always loved dogs. I always wound up walking my family’s dogs, and then started walking other dogs in my neighborhood and it was always something that was fulfilling and fun. I’m very compassionate and empathetic and always treat others how I want to be treated, and that applies to animals especially. I pay great attention to detail, can administer medication if need be, and have experience with tons of different breeds. In my free time I enjoy playing basketball, writing songs, painting, drawing, watching television and spending time with family.
Hi, I’m Laura! I was born and raised in Northern Virginia. Growing up, I had a King Charles Cavalier named Cleo, as well as some guinea pigs.

I became a dog walker because nothing makes me happier than being around dogs! I wanted my day job to involve animals and thanks to MixyPaws, it does. In my spare time, I like to explore the city and see Broadway shows. I can’t wait to meet you and your pup!
Hi! My name is Diana, born and raised in Queens, New York. I have always had a dog in my life, my first was a Belgian shepherd named Trixie then a Jack Russell Terrier/Shepherd mix named Penny. I now have a 60 lb. Staffy mix named Ripley from the ASPCA. She is a high energy lady and has taught me how to handle larger, stronger breeds. I want to pursue a career in animal care and dog walking is broadening my knowledge of different breeds and their unique personalities. I'm punctual, patient and care for every dog as if they are my own; they are family members and deserve the best. My past times are watching hockey, painting, going hiking and being outdoors. I can't wait to meet you and your pup and provide a safe, fun walk!

Hi! I’m Jessica. I am from Branford, Connecticut where I lived until I graduated. I then moved to NYC to pursue my dream to be a model. I grew up with a German Shepherd named Paco.

I love the outdoors and really to love walk. I am compassionate, mature and a very hard worker. I look forward to meeting your pup and promise to provide the same love and care I would my own!
Hi! My name is Jon. I was born in the Bronx, however I spent most of my years growing up in Poughkeepsie, NY. When I was a child, my grandmother owned a poodle named Diamond that I'd see everyday, and my boy Sammy is a 5 year old Shitzu/Lhasa Apso mix.

I want to help MixyPaws provide the best service and care for all of our best friends. I am patient and observant, and always look out for the best interest for all of my dogs; their happiness is most important. When I'm not working, I spend my nights and weekends playing music in several NYC-based bands.

My first career goal was to become a veterinarian, but that changed after I entered the program. Now my goal is to become a K9 police officer, as I would have the privilege of working with dogs all day while protecting fellow citizens.

Hi! I was born and raised in Cayey, Puerto Rico. Since I was a child, I have always loved animals. My parents brought me up with dogs and each one of them played an important role in my life. During the summer of 2001, I came to my house with a puppy in my arms, a Cocker Spaniel that I named Vincent. He grew up with me, and taught me to develop my passion towards dogs. I worked at the Saint Francis Veterinary Hospital for four years, where I learned a lot about Canine health. I came to New York this past year and was very happy to begin my rewarding role with MixyPaws; in addition to my work with MixyPaws, I hope to rescue dogs as well, to help rehabilitate them. I love sports, listening to music, watching movies, enjoying nature, but the most important thing for me is spending time with my family. I am glad to be part of the MixyPaws team and it will be an honor to walk and take care of your dog! I will take care of them as if they were my own and will always prioritize making them feel comfortable, safe and happy.

My first dog, Mila, was a black shih-tzu we adopted; shortly after, we adopted another dog, a yorkie/shih-tzu mix named Buddy. My goal is to one day become a veterinarian. I became a dog walker to gain more experience working with animals; learning more about each breed and building relationships with every dog has been so rewarding. I feel I’m an amazing dog walker as I love being outside in all weather, I'm extremely patient, and every dog’s safety and happiness is my top priority on every walk or visit. I promise your furry friend will always be happy and in loving hands while in my care.

I have a Bachelors of Arts in TV Production from Hofstra University; my dream job is to one day become a videographer for NHL games. My interest in becoming a dog walker was inspired by wanting to be around the animals I care most about everyday, as well as in having the ability to enjoy the walks and to experience new areas of New York I have not seen before. A few characteristics I possess which I feel make me an excellent dog walker are that I am kind, caring, compassionate, always in good spirits, motivated, and my love for animals. In my spare time I like to paint and have a podcast on the side. I love to play and watch ice hockey, while also taking walks all around New York.

These experiences have helped me to become increasingly aware of the needs of doggie parents and the responsibilities of making sure their best friends are safe and healthy. My hobbies include grooming and styling. At the moment I have two dogs, both Yorkshire Terriers, and I cut, wash, blow dry, and style them any time needed.

My German Shepard’s name is King, and my Shih tzu’s name is Bella. I graduated from Manhattan Comprehensive Night and Day High School.

Hello, my name is Geraldo. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I have a beautiful five year old Maltese; his name is Mike and I’ve raised him since he was a puppy. While dogs are my favorite, I have a huge heart for all animals. I studied graphic design and leaned towards working in the tech field where I was a Quality Manager at a start up e-commerce company. Switching to dog walking was the best choice I’ve ever made, as I get to interact with wonderful dogs and spend time with them, and I also very much enjoy being outside. My career goal is to create content online and showcase my creativity involving art, design and tech; I am huge tech fanatic and love researching the latest technology. During my spare time, I love to explore the city, trying new cuisines, bike riding and spending time with loved ones. I am very excited for this new venture and to create a great bond with your dog!
