I have lived with dogs my entire adult life. I currently share my life with a beautiful sighthound that is the love of my life. I have trained dogs at shelters to help them get furever homes so I am very dedicated to dogs living the best life possible. I love to walk and hike and no walk is complete without a happy dog by my side. I can't wait to meet your dog and start a great adventure.

“I never met a dog I didn't like!”

Hi, I'm Megan! I've loved dogs all my life and I learned about how to responsibly care for them from my aunt, who has been adopting dogs for decades which allowed me to learn about a variety of dog behaviors and breeds. I always put safety first and make sure to respect the dogs and their owners, staying focused while on walks and asking permission about anything not explicitly addressed by the owner.

I have experience walking friends’ high energy dogs on hikes and they absolutely love it. Their owners are pleased when their dogs are joyous after getting energy out and I make sure to ALWAYS bring water and a bowl for the pups. I love dogs of all sizes and will determine the optimal level of difficulty for the pups so they will not be too fatigued. I am experienced walking dogs nearing 100 lbs and of great strength so I should have no issue with any sizes. Thank you in advance! All the best.
