“Strong, compassionate walker”

My name is Sarah. I'm a young professional with a profound love of dogs. I've been dog sitting for friends, coworkers, and people in the St Louis area for about 3 years now, and I volunteer at a local animal shelter as a dog walker. I’ve met some truly amazing dogs during that time and I look forward to meeting yours.

Hi, I'm Jim. I grew up with dogs and have always enjoyed their company. I understand that my clients consider their pets as family. Each dog has it's own personality and I love spending time with them. I could also use the exercise. I've volunteered at animal shelters and haven't met a doggo I didn't like.

“A walk is always better with a fur baby or 2 or 3.”

I have always had a dog in my life. I love taking the 2 I have for walks but I also like to get extra walking time in for my own exercise and it is always more fun to have a fur baby with you on the adventure.

I have been a dog owner my whole life owning various breeds including Basset Hounds, Irish Setters, Beagles, Corgis and mixed-breed rescue dogs. I enjoy interacting with all dogs and their different personalities. Dog walking gets myself and your dog out of the house for some exercise, a win-win situation for myself and your pet.

“Understanding”

I have always loved animals. I do not have a favorite pet. I actually found the love of animals from bringing in strays as a child and going through various training for Veterinary Ass/Tech positions. I really can't wait to provide an essential need for your pet. I have my own critters so I understand how important their care is to an owner/ pet parent.

Dog Walking in Columbia

Columbia is a small town in Illinois that borders the Mississippi River,  and is about 12 miles from St. Louis, Missouri on the opposite side of the historic waterway. While the rushing waters of this large river may be a bit intimidating for most pups, Columbia has a lot to offer its resident and visiting dogs. Home to six veterinarians, Columbia ensure that all pups get the help they need to stay healthy and happy canines.

Take your pup out to one of the great parks that Columbia has to offer. The Meadow Ridge Park offers fantastic grassy areas, as well as baseball and football fields, and tennis and basketball courts. Your pup may be more interested in the walking path that Meadow Ridge Park has to offer for a nice walk. 

Grab a bite to eat at Top Shooters Sports Bar with Fido by your side. The bar was voted the Best Neighborhood Bar in the St. Louis area, and offers salads, soups, chili, and pizza. They have a great menu of drinks, and their outdoor patio is huge, which is perfect if you decide to bring Fido along with you.
