“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 Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury benefits from the amenities of St. Louis County and St. Louis proper because it straddles the boundaries of both. The great drainage ditch in St. Louis, called the River Des Peres, extends on its northeastern border and runs the line between the two. Shrewsbury is a short 2.4 miles from the River Des Peres Park. This St. Louis park has a series of landscaped spaces and paved walkways for a person and a leashed pup to take advantage of. The picturesque bridges across the sometimes less than beautiful River Des Peres make for an interesting contrast. 

Shrewsbury has its own 32-acre city park called Wehner Park. This park has expansive grassy fields where the local community plays soccer during the season, and which welcome leashed dogs year-round. Sidewalks surround this park, and there is ample parking. The pavilion is a local favorite place for gatherings of all types. Wehner Park is never without furry pals on leashes enjoying the outdoors with their human companions. Water is turned on for most of the year, so you just need to bring doggie waste bags along.

Shrewsbury’s other three city parks (Ackfeld, Brinktop, Hartry) are under ten acres, but still give dogs and their person a respite from daily living and a chance for some outdoor green space. What could be better than sitting under an old oak tree with your best four-legged friend? One of Shrewsbury’s semi-urban oases can do that for you and your pup.
