Hi, my name is Jordan. First of all, I love dogs! I have been walking dogs on a regular basis since 2009. This includes walking my neighbor's dogs. I also acted as a long term dog sitter for an elderly woman who had to move into a home. I literally moved in and took care of her dog and her home full time! They had to sell the home and asked me to adopt the dog (Barkis) which I was thrilled to do and we are best buddies :)

Looking for a new place to walk your furry BFF? Clip on her leash and head over to Boulan Park. This is one of Troy’s largest parks and a community favorite. Two legged visitors come for the ball diamonds, tennis courts, soccer fields, and playgrounds. Four legged park patrons are more interested in the expansive fields and the paved walking path. Take a brisk walk around the 1.25 mile trail to get your pup’s blood flowing. You’ll pass a large wooded area and plenty of mature trees.  If she has a lot of energy, you may need to take a couple laps. Be sure to bring plenty of water; she’ll be thirsty after such a pupperific walk!
