OUR TEAM

Sasha

Owner & dog walker

Hi, I’m Sasha! I have been an animal lover my entire life. I’ve cared for dogs of all ages since I was a little girl. As I grew older, I knew that working with animals would be my career so I began immersing myself by volunteering at animal shelters and working at veterinary hospitals. Most recently, I’ve started my own pet sitting business and have turned it into my full time job!

I don’t just watch over dogs; I care for family members who have different routines, likes, dislikes, individual personalities and styles of communication. My aim is to care for your dog in the same way that you would – with love, compassion, and enthusiasm! I respect and admire your relationship with your dog, and want to strengthen your bond by providing your dog with the highest level of care!

I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to share my love of animals with my fellow pet parents and to serve the Pittsburgh area. I love meeting new dogs, and will always welcome any newcomers into the pack for some fun and adventure! I hope to get the chance to meet you and your lovely dog soon!

Josh

Co-owner & dog walker

Hi, I’m Josh! I married Sasha in 2016 and we started The Northern Mile In 2017 after we got our own dog, because we realized there is no greater joy than a dog who knows they are about to get your attention. We attempt to create that joy with your animal when you are unavailable to them, and in the process, everyone ends up a little happier!

I have been caring for animals for several years in different capacities. I am experienced with cat and dog care, I have done overnights in the clients home, daily visits, and drop-in visits as a member of The Northern Mile and hope to brighten your pets day in any way I can!

Eden

Dog walker

Hi, I’m Eden! I grew up in New Jersey with a Bichon Havanese and Westie in my family. I started walking and sitting for the dog’s in my neighborhood, where I gained experience taking care of all breeds and sizes. I have lived in Pittsburgh for the past five years and now have a 1 year old Collie and an 8 month old German Shepherd who are both very active and social.

Nothing makes me happier than knowing I can give the loving attention and care for your dogs as much as I would for my own, when you need help. Can’t wait to meet your pups!

Lauren

Dog walker

Hi, I’m Lauren! I’ve been in the pet care industry for over 6 years now! I regularly walk dogs and do overnight sitting for a wide variety of breeds. I’ve worked at a dog day-care and boarding facility in the past, so I am experienced in working with dogs of all kinds. Currently, I live in Wexford, but I drive all over Pittsburgh to care for dogs, cats, small pets, and even birds. At home, I have a Goldendoodle naked Daisy, two cats named Loki & Mow, and a chinchilla named Alice.
