“I love all dogs!”

I love dogs and have been around them since I was a kid. I got my first dog, a black Labrador named Kodak, when I was eight years old. I still remember how he used to follow me around the house day and night. I work from home as a technical writer, and walking dogs lets me interact with the animals I love while also getting me away from the computer for a few hours each day.

I love dogs more than people. They are selfless, innocent fur babies whose only objective is to please. We, as humans, should reciprocate that love by giving them what little they need and everything they deserve! I think i can give the dog whisperer a run for his money bc even the meanest of dogs have shown me their sweetest sides. I never blame a dog for being aggression; more so, their upbringing. Like human children, dogs become a product of their culture, what they're exposed to. I'm here to show i love them, i understand them, and i'm on their side.

“Furry paws are the best!”

Your dog is my dog. All dogs deserve to be loved. This became even clearer as a volunteer at a no kill shelter in NC. I had the privilege working with dogs and cats. I grew up with dogs and now while I don't own a dog anymore I get to own many dogs. Walking dogs and dog sitting has greatly increased the size of my family. Will your dog be a part of my family?

I'm a stay-at-home mom to 2 kids and Duke, our 7-year-old Black Lab mix rescue dog, who we all spoil. After standing in for my daughter on a dog walking job for a neighbor, I realized that this is something I want to do more of myself! Besides taking care of Duke, I dog sit for a friend when she travels, have participated in the Denver Dumb Friends League Wag 'N Trail fundraising walk, and help my daughter with her own dog walking jobs. I've always owned a dog and can't imagine life without one!

Dog Walking in Derby

Named after the city in England, the Denver suburb of Derby was established in 1910 when a post office opened in the small settlement. While more than a hundred years have passed since its inception, Derby has somehow maintained a pleasantly conservative size as the Denver muttropolitan area has grown up around it.

While Derby is without fur-iendly amenities, there are many to choose from just down the road in Commerce City. There are even two veterinary clinics in this neighboring town!

You and your pup will love visiting Commerce City’s Urquidez-Centennial Park, less than a mile away from Derby. Cattycorner to Monaco Elementary School, this neighborhood park is primarily made up of wide open grassy space! You and Fido can stroll and play until your hearts are content at this pleasant park. There’s also a playground for kiddos, trees, basketball courts and a covered picnic pavilion where you two can relax after playtime. For a longer walk, hop on the sidewalks that border the park and continue to wind through this quiet, older residential area where the streets are lined with many mature trees.

Derby residents truly get the best of both worlds – a quiet small town with all the furrific amenities just a short drive away!
