My name is Kevin, I am a distance runner who most would call a marathoner, but in all honesty I simply love competitive running and the outdoors. I have only ever owned and raised Great Danes, to which my current female Bella is a 2 years old beauty. I choose Bella out of the litter of 12 because she was completely deaf, and she has been such an amazing part of our family. As a runner I've grown to love the outdoors, so rain, heat, or cold I'm there, outdoors is where I'm at my best!

Hello! I am currently a 3rd year veterinary student at LSU SVM. In the past I have worked in a vet clinic for two years as a kennel worker and a veterinary technician. As a kennel worker, part of my job was to walk the dogs boarding with the clinic multiple times a day. I am also a dog owner myself of two wonderful fur babies and I understand how important it is to trust who you leave your fur babies with. Please consider me if you would to have your pups walked by someone who has many years of dog experience and is currently going to school to bring medical care to canines.
