Hi! I have a lot of experience with all sorts of dogs! As a teen, I volunteered at my local humane society where I encountered many breeds and types of dog behavior. Later, I adopted my own small dog and was a dog-sitter for another one for many years. I look forward to meeting you and your dog soon!

I love animals! In jr high I became vegetarian hoping to help save cows & pigs. My first job was working for a pet groomer. I learned about the different breeds that came in for grooming. I also worked for a boarding company and learned how to care for animals with different needs ranging from special diets to medical attention. When you can't be there to walk your dog, or your schedule for the day is just too full, I hope you will think of me when you need the best care for your fur baby!

“From Graduate school to Dog Walking!”

I’ve spent 1 year learning the world of professional pet care. It happened by accident - I got a chance to go back to school, not only to earn a master’s degree but to play volleyball. Unfortunately, I finished my degree injured and struggling mentally. Enter dog walking! I thought I would just try it out...turns out it helped me heal: movement, nature and a friendly companion. Then it dawned on me, growing up with all kinds of animals from fish to horses - I was built for this!! Yay pet care!

“I can’t wait to walk your dog!”

I have grown up with dogs all my life. I have had two dogs during my lifetime, Jasper and Summer. With some help from my parents and siblings, I fed and walked my dogs daily. I got the "dog care" merit badge when I was a boy scout. I love all animals, but dogs have a special spot in my heart.

Dog Walking in Garden City

Tucked into the Boise River floodplain lies the pet-friendly and lushly forested neighborhoods of Garden City, Idaho. Garden City is technically part of Boise but retains its own municipality. Plenty of streams — jettying off the Boise River — carry salmon and steelhead trout, making the area great for fishing. The origins of the city tell stories of seasonal encampments of Native Americans before the explorers and trappers migrated to the land. A group of 11 prospectors found an impressive amount of placer gold in the mountains of the Boise Basin. Since then, many have flocked to Garden City to live within a thriving, amiable paradise.

Pet owners love living in Garden City. There are 9 veterinarians, a pet groomer — with dozens more in the surrounding Boise area — and 2 pet shops here! Living in Garden City, you'll have quick access to anything you could ever need to keep your dog's tail wagging! The "outdoorsy" types have their pick of the 11 well-maintained parks within the city. Also, there are two hiking trails — The Pole House Short Loop & Seamans Gulch Dry Creek Loop — which start at two different parks within Garden City. After a day outdoors, you and Fido can head to one of the 5 pet-friendly restaurants right here in the city limits! Grab the leash and head out!
