I love working with all your pets and I like to think they like me too! My ideal day is sunny, 75 not humid and spent with a smiling group of happy pups! You can find me at Millennium park, Wilson mountain or a shady neighborhood street.

I been a dog walker for DAP since 2013. I have adopted 2 Greyhounds since 2004. My first greyhound "Cajun Wind" passed away in 2103 at 15 years old and now I have Bingo who is 12. I have a soft spot for the seniors. I am very active in the Greyhound community here in MA. We have a large dog walking group that walks somewhere almost every Saturday or Sunday. When I am not walking dogs I enjoy cuddling with my Bingo girl, working in my yard and heading to Maine with Bingo to spend some quiet time at a friend's cottage on a small pond where I keep my sailboat. After working at a desk job for many years I do not regret my decision to put my job where my heart is - working with dogs instead of databases. I think I have the best job paws down!

It is said "find a job that you love and you'll never work a day in your life". While that may not be entirely true, I am indeed one of the fortunate few who has found a job that fulfills me and makes me happier than I ever could have imagined. With the help of my husband & co-owner Ultan, my General Manager Jannine and my amazing team of dedicated walkers I am lucky enough to spend my days surrounded by wagging tails and purring felines enjoying all the New England Seasons have to offer

My name is Kim. I've worked for DAP since 2014. I love all animals, especially dogs. I've had dogs (mutts ) for 24 years. My dog's names are Batman and Blue. They are both rescue pups. When I'm not with your dogs or my own, I like to read and listen to music.

Hello! I've been working at DAP since 2011. I've had dogs all my life. I grew up with Beagles so I guess it's no surprise that I have a Coonhound named Lily. Though I have owned a Newfoundland, a Yellow Lab and a Boxer. I love working at DAP and walking all my pups. I love how happy they are to see me - I am their favorite Auntie after all! It's super cute when you see some of your pack becoming bff's with each other and how excited they are to see their pals everyday. I feel lucky that I get to spend my day outside with dogs and the connection I make with their owners is priceless as well.

Hi! I'm Rebecca. And these are my dogs Chi and Nix. When I'm not hanging with them, I'm with my DAP pack. I've been with DAP since April 2017, but I've always been around dogs for as long as I can remember. I'm originally from Vermont. I grew up competing in Hunter Jumper shows with my horses. And of course had a dog, cats, parakeets, hamsters... I had a whole menagerie. I love my job because I get to be out in nature, with my 4-legged friends. Best of all, I can escape the crazy world in the woods, and be at one with nature and my pack. See you on the trails!

I used to be known as the "lab" guy. After moving to the States from my native Galway, Ireland and buying my first house the first thing I did was head out and get myself a puppy. That puppy was Juno! She was the most amazing & loyal friend and lived a long & healthy life before I had to say goodbye to her at age 16. After that I got my lab fix from DAP and have walked pretty much every lab we have. So, it is pretty ironic that I am now the proud father to Benji, a 30lb Cocker Spaniel and Aggie, a 9lb Jack Russell / Chihuahua mix. When not hiking with your dogs, I work as a Realtor for Vogt Realty Group in Dedham.

I like long walks in the park, chasing balls, playing in the puddles with my friends, riding in the car, cold noses and wet kisses. So given all of that, how could I note enjoy spending my days with your 4 legged friends!

My name is Linda and these are my Boston's Izzy & Lizzy. There hasn't been a time in my life when dogs weren't a part of it. I have been with DAP since March 2017 and I love every minute of it! When I'm not walking dogs I am busy being a mother and wife. I love spending time with my family, traveling, boating, and going to the gym. I tell people that the woods is my office and the dogs are my coworkers. I guess you could say that I have a dream job.

Having grown up with dogs and being a huge animal lover, how could I not want to work with them. I've been doing it for years; from being a vet tech to dog sitting and dog walking. There is nothing like being able to play and cuddle. I love meeting adorable friends every day.

Hi everyone! I'm Jessiana, and I've been working with dogs for almost five years now. I grew up in Florida, so I'm happy to be in Massachusetts now where I get to experience all four seasons! I'm so excited to become a part of the Doggie Au Pair Team, I can't think of a better way to spend my time than enjoying the outdoors with some amazing four legged friends.

I joined DAP in September 2017. Coming from many years of working in the corporate world, this to me is a dream job. Being out in nature with the best companions ever! Dogs truly are a man's best friend and it is a privilege and joy for me to spend my week with them and I look forward to seeing my pals every day. I love animals, and have 2 cats of my own, Oatmeal and Oliver.

Hello my name is Julia Couco, I'm 23 years old from Wrentham Mass. I have two dogs, a cocker spaniel named Ruby and a golden doodle named Fenway.  I have been around dogs all shapes, sizes and breeds since I was a kid. I do a lot of volunteer work and have volunteered in the past collecting donations for animals affected by natural disasters.  My days wouldn't be the same without animals in my life.  I look forward to spending time with your furry family members!
