Hi I'm Katy! I love all things circus and performance art; in my spare time you can usually find me at the Voler School for Aerial Arts. I love fitness, nutrition and trying to stay active as often as I can! While I'm quite sociable with humans, I'm generally most excited when there's a dog to meet ;) Each pooch is unique, and I love getting to know each one. The subtleties of their diverse personalities is my favorite part of getting to spend time with them, I can't wait to meet yours!!

“4.96 Star Rated - Top Walker - Thank You!”

Hello, I am Cindy and I love dogs. All kinds of dogs. I am retired and decided I want to walk other peoples dogs since both my lovers died this year of old age. I miss having a dog around very much but want to do some travelling right now. I would love the chance to spoil your dogs rotten just like I used to do mine. For the past 6 years, I have spent many hours a day helping shelter dogs get relocated out of Kentucky (where the animal protection laws are the worst in the nation).

“A walk goes a long way in the language of doggy!”

My husband and I have two fur-babies, an adorable Basenji mix named Fenn, and a goofy kitty named Vader. I worked at an animal hospital for a year before deciding the medical field wasn't right for me, but animals were! I've worked in the pet industry for over three years and volunteered at Kansas City Pet Project at their main shelter. I strive to understand them, and know they all have different personalities, just like we do! A pocket full of treats never hurts, either:)

“It was me... I was the one who let the dogs out.”

I’ll always care for your dog as if it were my own! I started pet sitting when I was 10. At 18, I volunteered for an animal welfare society for about 10 years, and served on the board for 3 of those years. I’ve continued to pet sit for all kinds of animals. I also worked in medical while volunteering and worked with many special needs animals. I walked for a German shepherd rescue helping leash train the dogs that were boarded. I love all animals and caring for them!

Dog Walking in Buckner

Buckner, Missouri is named after Alexander Buckner. He was a lawyer who took an interest in agriculture and therefore laid the foundation for the city to come to life. The region is known for being on the rail line, but he gave it the purpose for that rail line. Not only did the city then embrace the agriculture, but they also embraced him and made his home a historic site. As you walk through Buckner, you will see many historic signs that describe the town's historical significance.

If you want an unique experience, then you should head over to Buckner Truck and Tractor Pull. They have a display where you can see the tractors and trailers that they use in their show. You may even learn something you didn't know about before. When you're finished, check out the actual show!

For a more adult time, you could stop on over at the Bonehill View Distillery. They have encased a moonshine still right in the heart of an old mill. The building is amazing and authentic but the cocktails are strong and have a kick that can't be beat!

It is never a bad time for Mexican food, just like it is never too far to drive for Mexican food. That is why Chipotle Mexican Grill is always the place to go to eat. It is only about fifteen miles from Buckner. All of their outdoor tables are dog-friendly. You can grab a burrito bowl. Try some fresh tortillas made right there in front of you. Of course, they have tacos and who doesn't want to eat tacos? Still need a reason to go?  Just think of how happy your dog will be in the car on the ride over! Now grab that leash and go get you some chips and salsa.
