My name is Michelle and I always loved dogs. I volunteered at an animal shelter in college and am now the designated dog-sitter for my co-workers. I am here to take your dog for walks or even be your new favorite sitter. Being able to spend time with dogs makes my day better and I would love to hang out with yours!

Hi there, I'm Alysse! I grew up south of Boston with a Golden Retriever named Jace. I started dog walking and sitting when I was 10 years old. I have experience with all ages, ranging from 6 weeks to 13 years, which were all different sized breeds. I know how important it is to provide regular exercise for your furry companion, especially being a dog mom myself! I would love the opportunity to keep your dog happy and healthy by providing my care! I will also make sure that your Wag experience is a positive one!
I am a recent Tufts University graduate and I will be back Tacoma for the summer. I am incredibly excited about being around more furry creatures during my time here. At home, I have a 9 year old vizsla named Beau who loves long beach walks and outdoor adventures. I can’t wait to walk many more friendly dog in the area.
Hi, I'm Charlie! I am from Minneapolis and grew up with dogs galore. Hoover (St. Bernard), Hazel (yellow lab), and Milo (yellow lab) kept me busy before I came to college out here in Denver. I was responsible for watching these three whenever my parents were not around, and since our neighbors saw us as a dog friendly household, I would occasionally pick up a neighborhood dog or two to watch. I have experience taking care of dogs both small and large. Hoover was a 110 lbs St. Bernard, and we got both Milo and Hazel as 2 month old puppies.Since coming out to Denver, I have missed my three pups at home, so I have dog sat on occasion out here as well.Lastly, I am a big runner so I would be more than happy to take your furry friend on runs with me!

Hi, I'm TJ! I grew up here in Aspen where I volunteered with my local animal shelter as a dog walker for over 10 years since I was a little kid. Our family dog was an energetic pitbull/lab/boxer mix. I have always loved the outdoors, fresh air, and exercise, and I'm excited to have your dog enjoy those things with me!

Hi there! My name is André and to put it simply- I LOVE dogs! Over the years I’ve had the privilege of enjoying many different types of dogs in my life. From gentle greyhounds to excitable labradors, energetic small terriers to their larger and stronger pit bull relatives, I always enjoy time spent with dogs. I relish studying them and learning from them. In fact, canine psychology has always been a fascination of mine. I will always do my best to understand your animal’s needs so I can provide the best service possible- for the dogs and of course, for you!

AAS is known for having one of the top 100 animal shelter programs within the United States - can you say pawtastic? Their special dog walking program allows their shelter dogs the proper amount of exercise and human interaction that each animal so desperately needs. This shelter also believes youth education and community education about the proper care and treatment of animals is essential to reduce homelessness in the pet population. Therefore, they host a variety of educational programs within local schools and communities to teach people these important values.
Lucky Day Animal Rescue has a similar mission and philosophy as well. They are a non-profit organization that only has foster homes for their rescued animals, which means they don't have a physical adoption center. All animals are placed in loving and healthy homes until pups and kitties find their forever homes. Lucy Day was only started in 2011, but they have already helped thousands of animals! They take community involvement and education very seriously and provide educational animal classes for children in the community and host a variety of community-based charity event for their animals throughout the year.
Wintersköl is one of Aspen's biggest winter events and the event is never complete without the super-adorable canine fashion show! It is sponsored by the Aspen Animal Shelter and is a must-attend event. There will be celebrity judges and some of the most pampered pets in the state. This event will take place during January, and well-behaved dogs are more than welcome to attend with you and your family as well. So bundle up and head out to this fun event!
This annual Dog Day Afternoon event is a super fun community carnival! There is a bounce house, a dunk tank, free food and drinks, and so much more. There will also be some adoptable dogs attending the carnival as well. You are more than welcome to bring your pup with you so they can join in on the fun as well. Donations are expected when you attend this event and all proceeds go right to the Aspen Animal Shelter to help their dogs and animals in need!
With specific dates being released closer to the event, this May the Fourth Party is always put on by Aspen Meadows Pet Resort. Celebrating the space-age legacy everyone knows and loves, this party combines fur-buddies and Star Wars (and we aren't talking about Ewoks). They have plenty of puppy-treats available for your furry friend, including cupcakes, dog chews, and super fun lightsaber ice cream bars. (If you give your pup a lick of ice cream, we won't tell.) You definitely don't want your pooch to miss out on this super fun day!
Although this event takes place outside of Aspen, it is definitely worth the drive with your pup. The event is held on a day in February at the Bennett Canine Training facility. Admission to this event is free even if you decide to bring your furry best friend with you - which you pawsitively should! If you actually want to have your dog participate in the event and to have them tested at the end, there is a small fee of $15.00.
We still need to wait for more dates to be announced as the event nears, but the Aspen Animal Shelter hosts numerous Hound and Heart nights for you and your pup throughout the year. Events include food, drinks, puppies, and loads of fun! A portion of the proceeds benefits the Aspen Animal Shelter and Jazz Aspen Snowmass. It is always a night full of adorable puppies and delicious food, and it makes for a great way to spend an evening with your favorite humans and your favorite pups!
