B. Smith

B. Smith

Owner/Operator

Hello pet parents and pet enthusiasts of Rochester! It is an absolute pleasure to be serving such an incredible community filled with so many animal lovers! I was born and raised right here in Rochester, NY, and have aspired to offer exceptional care for both the pets and their humans in this area, for what feels like a lifetime. From Kennel Attendant to Dog Daycare Team Member, to earning my degree as a Canine Behavior Trainer, to a Manager with Rochester Dog Walkers, I knew my career would involve caring for the pets of Rochester. On my first day with RDW, in May 2019, I knew I was “home”. Acquiring RDW has been my greatest accomplishment, though will not be my last! Thank you for supporting our mission to provide exceptional in home pet care to the pets of Rochester! Without you, this would still be just another “dream”.

She says “We have such amazing and awesome animals in this world, all with their own personalities and deserving our respect. I can’t wait to meet your pets and get to know their own personalities!”

Hi! I grew up in Fairport NY and have lived in the area most of my life. I’ve been an avid dog fan since I was young, and developed an interest in dog training and sports. I have a Border Collie puppy Mirk who is I spoil to death, which means lots of fetch and play! We are training for agility and he is going to try sheep herding once he’s a little older. My interests outside of work include bass guitar, web development, cooking and reading. My fun fact is I used to have a ferret as a pet!

Dog Walker/Pet Care Specialist

Howdy! My name is Riley and I’m from Atlanta, GA. I currently have one dog named Shadow. He’s a blue tick hound/Australian cattle dog mix. Fun fact: he was found in our garage when he was just a puppy! After all these years he’s still my best friend and I love taking him on many walks around the neighborhood . Outside of caring for animals I love playing video games with my friends, and enjoy embroidery. My favorite part about working for Rochester Dog Walkers is getting to see how excited the dogs are right before their walk begins. It’s a very special time of their day and I love being part of it ❤️.

I was born and raised in Rochester, NY. I live with my “boys” Spencer, Quincey and Orlando. Besides my “boys”, I have a strong passion for sports and love to workout, participate in mud runs, 100 mile bike rides for charity, and golf with my dad.

When I am not working out, I love to tinker around the house and garden. I really enjoy spoiling my “boys” with trips to the dog park to enjoy the outdoors.

Hi! I’m Danielle!

I’m a recent Rochester transplant from Pittsburgh, PA. I share my home in the city with a German Shepherd named Cash, and a Belgian Malinois named Chirp. We play a dog sport called Mondioring, which involves obedience, jumping, and protection exercises. When I’m not walking dogs, I like to study computer programming, work on crafts (my latest venture is embroidery), and dance!
Fun fact about me- I’ve been studying Egyptian and Middle Eastern music and dance for over a decade!
