“Be the person your dog thinks you are!”

I am currently owned by 2 dogs- an Australian Shepherd (Niko) and a Shi Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix (Cali). We have our grand dog Ralph for lots of overnights also. He is a young cockapoo. We all walk together and live together in perect harmony. Our Aussie, Niko, is obsessed with Frisbee! I enjoy my brother's Boxer, Myah, my other brother's Labradoodles, and my sister's Labs. I am loving and attentive with dogs, enjoy playing and cuddling, but can be firm when required as well.

“Happiness is a walked dog.”

Dogs (and cats) have always been a part of my life. My son and I have volunteered with the Humane Society, and support charities like EDRC. We’ve had dogs with special dietary needs, medical issues, senior dogs, and most recently a puppy. I always come prepared with treats, waste bags, apparel for ANY weather (it’s Indiana, after all) and good walking shoes. My goal is to make sure you know you and your dog are in good hands. It’s more than a walk!
