Hi! My name is Katie, and I am currently in grad school at UGA for Human Development & Family Science. I am from Columbus, GA, but Athens is my home. I absolutely love dogs and spending time outside. I have experience with dog training including leash training. With that being said, I might be able to teach your dog better walking techniques if treats are involved. I find dog walking to be very relaxing and therapeutic especially when the weather is nice!

I've had dogs of my own for most of my life, and absolutely love them! (All animals, really-- I'm currently working on my PhD in conservation, which is what I do when I'm not hanging out with sweet pups through Wag!) I've volunteered and worked in animal shelters and been a volunteer driver for transport relays that get dogs from rescues to families in other states. I will treat your dog(s) as if they were my own, making sure they're safe and happy throughout our time together.
