I grew up surrounded by animals, and have always had a passion for dogs. My house usually had a minimum of two dogs living with us at a time. Once old enough to drive, I began volunteering at my local animal shelter, where I worked with and cared for cats as well as dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes. I was responsible for walking, feeding, socializing and comforting these dogs, getting several of them more used to human interaction. We also bathed and groomed dogs as needed. My passion for dogs and other animals inspired me to start pet sitting and dog walking locally, for neighbors and other friends and clients throughout my home town. I acted as a regular pet sitter and dog walker for multiple people, whenever they would leave for vacation and other holidays. During the holidays and summer vacation, I often watched up to five dogs at a time. One of my customers had four dogs of varying ages. I would walk dogs based on their individual schedules and needs as outlined by their owners, going as many times per day as requested. I began regularly pet sitting my friend’s dog who was terrified of cars and trucks but lived but lived by the side of a main road, working to increase her dog’s confidence and lower her fear. I carried this out for 4 years before moving to Florida for college. Once in college, I worked at a local dog day care for approximately five months over my last semester, getting more experience with working with a variety of dogs. I helped train several dogs with behavioral issues here, worked with dogs who were aggressive towards other dogs and people, and gained more knowledge behind the psychology of many dog behaviors. As an avid runner and rock climber, I love being outside and staying active, especially when animals are involved. I can't wait to meet and walk your dog! :)

My name is Cori, I have been a dog lover my whole life. Growing up I have always had a dog and the moment I moved out on my own I found myself a young border collie to be my new best friend. Though my life I have babysat/boarded and walked numerous dogs. Any time I see a dog on the street I always ask the owner if I can make friends with them and give them a good pet. I do take dog walking seriously, fun is very important but safety always comes first so your pet can stay healthy and happy.

Dog Boarding in Reno

The “Biggest Little City in the World” may be better known for its casinos and hotels than anything else, but Reno is also a grrr-eat place to live or visit with your dog. There’s a stack of dog-friendly attractions and experiences to explore, plus plenty of dedicated animal welfare and rescue groups working to improve the lives of the city’s animals.

The SPCA of Northern Nevada, for example, has been helping Reno’s pets since 1998. Established as the first no-kill shelter in Nevada, this community-funded organization promotes the responsible treatment of homeless dogs and cats. In addition to rescuing homeless animals and placing them in loving forever homes, it promotes spaying and neutering to control pet overpopulation. It also focuses on rural rescue with the goal to help all of northern Nevada become a no-kill community.

Nevada Humane Society also helps dogs in need in Reno and the surrounding areas. This charitable non-profit has a history dating back to 1932, and today it promotes animal welfare while finding homes and providing essential veterinary care to northern Nevada’s stray pets. In pursuit of its vision for every animal to have a healthy, happy life, Nevada Humane Society has saved over 90,000 animals.

These are just two of the animal rescue and welfare groups that help Reno’s homeless pets. There are plenty of other wonderful organizations that we simply don’t have the space to mention here, and all of them are worthy of your support!
