I have been walking my friends dogs daily for a few years. I have some extra time in the summer (I am a teacher), so I thought I would expand this to other dogs in the metro area. I am honest, responsible, and trustworthy. I promise to treat your dog as if he/she is my own.

Hi my name is Trudy. I live in the Minneapolis suburb area. I have two daughters And both enjoys animals (if my youngest could have it her way, we would be living on an animal farm). Our last dog was a beautiful spoiled and I mean spoiled (lol) Rotti named Athena. Unfortunately we had to put her down due to cancer. I’m not ready to get another fur-kid yet. I am tossing the idea around. We enjoy the outdoors. I’m dependable. I have my own transportation with insurance. I do work during the summer months and then I’m laid off Nov-Apr/May, so my availability opens up even more. I am available to stop after work if needed and I’m available on weekends. If you are in need of a sitter when you go out of town, and we are a fit. I would gladly enjoy having a visitor/s stay with us. We have a gated deck and plenty of walking paths around us. We are a none-smoking home and vehicles.

“Love all dogs!”

I love all animals and always have! I have two older Jack Russell Terriers and have had them since puppies. They don’t need as much exercise as I do nowadays! I love being outdoors, and I will be donating my earnings. For each month, I pick a fundraiser to donate my earnings to. If you have anything close to your heart, let me know and I can consider that foundation I am a non-smoker.
