Whether it's a walk around the neighborhood or taking a trip to the dog park, I'm always looking forward to my walks. I have experience with walking 50 different breeds of all sizes, and it's a pleasure meeting new pups. The more the merrier. The time I get to spend with a dog, young or not so young, small or not so small, makes the day that much better.

I'm onto a new career and am a nursing student. I would love to walk and take care of your pup. I’ve been walking dogs for a few years now, and I can’t imagine not interacting with them frequently! I have a three year old beagle who we rescued in 2018. He’s gone through extensive training, so I have an array of knowledge about handling various types of dogs. I can take your dog out for a hustle if s/he is high energy, or I can let him/her sniff around and enjoy life. I’m flexible!
