My name is Alex and I've been living in Santa Monica for a little over nine years now. I love that West LA is so good for getting outside for runs, walks, bike rides, and hikes, and being active has become one of my favorite past times. I grew up with dogs but haven't had my own in years, so I'm excited that this app gives me the opportunity to spend time with dogs again while getting my own exercise as well. I hope that I can match up with some athletic dogs that can run with me, as I know certain breeds need a lot more than just a walk around the neighborhood to really burn off their energy. I look forward to meeting you and your dog soon.

“All clothing I own is covered in dog hair.”

I've always been the one who everyone calls for anything dog related. I've volunteered at shelters, have worked for a pet behaviorist's radio show, grew up with dogs, and currently have two awesome low-rider pit mix rescue pups of my own. I know how much our dogs can affect every aspect of our lives, and I'd like to help alleviate your stress by making sure your buddies are well cared for while you're out. Let me know if your pups would like to go walking with me soon. I can't wait to meet them!

Hey there! I've been a dog/animal lover since I was a kid and have been walking dogs since I was a teenager.
