Hi there, I'm Mandy! I've loved animals my whole life. I couldn't have a dog when I was a kid so I had pet rats and showed horses! I've also done a lot of pet sitting and cared for everything from parrots to ferrets! I now have three rescue dogs than I train and compete with in the sport of Agility.

Hi! I've lived with at least one dog in the home my whole life. My last dog, Cleo, lived 16 long, healthy years! We walked every day, rain or shine! I really enjoy the company of dogs.

“I already love your pet!❤️”

I have been watching pets in their home and mine for almost 20 years. I am a full-time pet sitter so your animal will get lots of attention. I am a true animal lover and I treat every animal I watch with the tender loving care I would my own. Lots of walks, dog park visits and hikes to the creek are on the agenda if your pet likes that kind of thing. And I can’t get enough cuddles and love so there will be plenty of that too! I don’t just watch pets, I care for them. ❤️

“I’m your dog’s dawg.”

Hi there! I'm McKalah! I've have quite a bit of experience working with and caring for animals. I’ve worked as an animal care technician at Owen County Humane Society, general manager of a downtown Chicago daycare and boarding facility, and have been walking dogs since high school. I’ve met all kinds of ages, temperaments, and breeds and have never met a pup that I didn’t fall in love with!

I’ve lived in Indy my whole life, and I’ve loved dogs just as long! I’m a college student studying computer science right now, and I’m excited to be home for the summer! I’ve missed pets sooo much being away at school that I decided I need to walk dogs! I’m excited to get to connect 1 on 1 with your pupper :)

I am a college student and a lifetime dog lover! I grew up with my Goldendoodle Boomer and have been providing care for pets of friends and neighbors since elementary school. I'm an active, high energy person who loves to explore, so if I'm walking your dog you can be confident we will cover some distance! My favorite doggos are the giant ones such as Great Danes and Bernese Mountain Dogs, but all canines are friends and have their own humor. I'm a compassionate caretaker for dogs. I treat each one like my own, send great photos back, and leave the water bowl full.

Dog Walking in Spencer

Spencer is a small town in western Indiana that has one vet clinic near the Owen County Health Campus ready to care for your precious pooch. The town isn’t known for its dog-friendly activities, but you can always take your adventurous pup to McCormick’s Creek State Park, which offers playgrounds, nature trails, a nature center, campsites, and more. Leashed dogs are welcome in most areas!

There are a few places near Spencer, too, where you and your dog can find some dog-friendly dining and pet supply stores, like Bloomington. This city is about a 20-minute drive from Spencer and has several restaurants that welcome dogs at outdoor tables. You can also enjoy a fun day outside with your pup at Karst Farm Dog Park, an off-leash park with plenty of grass and a separate area to keep smaller dogs safe.

You can also hop on the Clear Creek Trail, part of the Rails-to-Trails Organization. This trail is over two miles in length and winds through meadows and along the creek, giving you the pawfect place for a relaxing walk or jog with your favorite pooch.

A little further from Bloomington are the Yellowwood State Forest and Brown County State Park, which you can visit for even more adventures with your pup outside of Spencer!
