“I want to meet another 4 legged friend!”

I don't remember a time in my life when I haven't had a dog! My experience ranges from having dogs on a farm to my current urban life with my 13 year old boxer lab mix. I love to explore Minneapolis with an enthusiastic 4 legged friend!

I have been married to Travis for 19 years. I have a teenage daughter who loves to play volleyball. I have two dogs, Sadie, a Weimaraner, who is 10 years old, and Bud, a German Shorthaired Pointer, who is 6 years. My dogs and I go on at least 2 walks a day. The neighbors know me as the dog lady. In the summer I enjoy camping, boating, hiking, and biking. In the winter I enjoy snowmobiling and snowshoeing. The dogs are usually along for the ride when possible.

“Kind and Dependable Caregiver”

Hi! I'm Sarah. I absolutely love dogs and love spending time exercising outdoors, so the opportunity to take your pup for a walk is a win-win! Most of my experience with dogs comes from the rescue dogs that I foster. I've had the privilege to work with a wonderful local rescue for the past year, and have helped five sweeties find their forever homes. I'm very grateful for all the fantastic dogs I've been able to care for over the years.

“Need a break? I’ll walk your dog!”

Hi all! I have been a dog owner for the last 15 years and I have loved all the dogs that I have come across. I have always had either a poodle or a goldendoodle in my household. I have always been overly excited when I see dogs because they just brighten up my day. Walking dogs is something that I have been doing for years, so I feel that I have the hang of things, from small dogs to the really big dogs. I have no problem walking then in all sorts of weather conditions and places.Dogs are great!

I have never met a dog I didn't want to play with! Always willing and ready to go for long walks with a pup. I had a Great Pyrenees for 14 years growing up and she unfortunately just passed so I'm missing seeing a dog everyday! I played basketball at northeastern here in Boston so running around and playing fetch is not gonna be a problem at all.
