“Looking forward to walkin’ your Rover all over!”
I love dogs. I have spent 35 years teaching and coaching high school sports, it is time to retire and I am ready for a change of pace. I have rescued two dogs, one lived with me for 15 years and my current dog has been with me for 5 years. I enjoy exercising and training her. I enjoy the outdoors and I like to remain active. I understand the need to have someone who is reliable to take care of your pet when you cannot be there. I understand the needs of dogs, and enjoy their company.

“Strong, compassionate walker”
My name is Sarah. I'm a young professional with a profound love of dogs. I've been dog sitting for friends, coworkers, and people in the St Louis area for about 3 years now, and I volunteer at a local animal shelter as a dog walker. I’ve met some truly amazing dogs during that time and I look forward to meeting yours.

Dog Walking in Des Peres
Des Peres is located off of a major interstate highway. It is also the site of a thriving mall, West County Mall. There is one veterinary clinic in Des Peres, which provides dogs with routine and emergency medical care, and also offers grooming services.

Another trail connects two other city parks, Bittersweet and Phantom Forest. These parks encompass ten and thirteen acres respectively. Pioneer Park has a .29-mile walking trail. Sugar Creek Park has a nature area and walking trail. All these parks offer some open green spaces for a leashed dog and person to explore together. They are favorite spots for area residents to spend weekend afternoons.

A lunch in the park with your favorite pal, and a walk around the fishing pond makes for some good moments with a furry best friend.
