“Looking forward to walkin’ your Rover all over!”

I love dogs. I have spent 35 years teaching and coaching high school sports, it is time to retire and I am ready for a change of pace. I have rescued two dogs, one lived with me for 15 years and my current dog has been with me for 5 years. I enjoy exercising and training her. I enjoy the outdoors and I like to remain active. I understand the need to have someone who is reliable to take care of your pet when you cannot be there. I understand the needs of dogs, and enjoy their company.

“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.

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.

Head out to Cliff Cave County Park in St. Louis, Missouri, which is eight miles out of Columbia, and a fantastic spot to hike with Fido.
