“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 Oakville

People and their pups can find a home, or just about anything else they could want, in Oakville. This community built on a stretch of hills has a large shopping mall on its northern border that attracts people from all over south St. Louis County and northern Jefferson County. The South County Mall makes convenience just a short drive away. Veterinary care is plentiful here. You and your pup will have at least three full-service veterinary clinics to take care of health problems big and small, or just to stay healthy.  

A great attraction for you and your pup will be found in the two big St. Louis County parks that are found here. Cliff Cave Park is on the northeast side of Oakville’s boundary.  It is a 525-acre park that straddles the Mississippi River. It has four trails for you and your pup to check out. Be careful, though, because these trails can take you up some of the rocky hills that make up most of Oakville. The view will be worth it, though, on the one-mile long River Bluff Trail. 

The Mississippi River Trail is a 5.1-mile paved loop trail for a good but not too strenuous walk with your leashed pal. Head further south into Oakville, and you and your pup will find Bee Tree Park. Bee Tree Park boasts four trails under a mile long. They aren’t all that easy, though. Most have rocky surfaces and some may take you up a few steep hills. The .8-mile Crow’s Roost Trail is a rock and earthen trail that takes you and your leashed dog up a steep hill or two for a scenic view of the Mississippi River. After a day of hiking, it isn’t  a long drive back to shopping malls and restaurants. Oakville really does have it all for a person and their pup!
