I've been a dog owner and walker since I was 5 years old. I've had many different breeds ranging from Rottweiler to Jack Russell Terrier. My current family dogs are two golden retrievers and I walk them at the same time so i'm i'm familiar with large dogs and can handle multiple dogs. I'm a fairly young and healthy person so I can keep up with any dog that may need a longer more energetic walk. I'd be more than happy to fill you and your pets' needs.

Hey, guys! I’m Kathleen, and I currently own a 3 year old Golden Retriever named Champ. I am so excited to meet you and your fur baby! I have been passionate about dogs since I was 5 years old. Since then, I have devoted my time to educating myself on countless breed specifics such as dietary restrictions, personality differences, energy levels, and overall temperaments. From an early age, I made it a priority to socialize our dog. As a result, I have become very familiar with the varying energies and demeanor each breed carries inherently. I have been so lucky to make so many friends through Champ, and I can’t wait to meet your best friend!
