“Walking your dogs to keep their tails wagging!!!!!”

I discovered my love for walking dogs after adopting my precious Spaniel mix, Muffy! I will always treat your dog like my own and grow to love them like my own! I watch to make sure they are not getting too hot or cold during their walk and that they remain safe. Making sure they get a fresh drink of water after their walk is very important to me. I have experience with older dogs and handicapped pups and understand that their needs on a walk are different from that of a younger energetic pup.

Hi! I really love walking dogs. It was the first job I had growing up, and it made sense since I grew up with dogs and enjoyed being outside. Now I’m a student at Loyola looking for ways to work outside and be around dogs again. I have worked with many different kinds of dogs of various breeds (Chihuahuas and Weiner dogs to German Shepherds and Pitbulls), sizes, personalities (shy to high prey instincts to high energy), and training backgrounds.
