“It’s a beautiful day to walk dogs - Derek Shepherd”

I am a medical professional, avid animal lover, and outdoor enthusiast. I particularly love dogs. While I currently don’t have my own dog, taking care of others is how I fill that space in my life. I have walked and house sat many dogs over the years. I look forward to meeting your cute pup.

I love getting to know the unique personality and quirks of each dog I get to meet. I am happy to take your dog on a more brisk walk or a slow stroll; whatever your dog prefers, I can accommodate.

I consider myself a pet professional! I’ve always had pets in the house since I was young - dogs, cats, fish, birds, even chinchillas! I have also always been the go-to dog walker and pet sitter in the neighborhood, and often care for my family’s fur relatives as well. Naturally, I was destined to build a career working with animals! I worked at a popular doggy daycare in Minneapolis for nearly four years before moving on to my current position as a veterinary assistant in Excelsior. I’ve been doing Wag walks and Wag sitting/boarding since the spring of 2018. I am a true dog lover and I can’t wait to meet your fur baby and give them the loving care they deserve!

I enjoy making sure your dog is happy and healthy with a good walk and a lot of love. I have owned dogs throughout my life but I don't have one at the moment so spending some time with your pup is a joy. I am kind, responsible and glad to be your dog walker.

“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.

I am looking for more friends to walk with along with find some cash to pay off student loans. I played a lot of sports, so if you have a high energy dog, you found a high energy guy that will make sure they get as much exercise as they desire! If you have not so energetic dogs, I know how to pace for the older fido's out there and I would love the opportunity to meet your buddy! I guess if you read nothing else, just know that I want to walk your dog.
