I grew up surrounded by animals, and have always had a passion for dogs. My house usually had a minimum of two dogs living with us at a time. Once old enough to drive, I began volunteering at my local animal shelter, where I worked with and cared for cats as well as dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes. I was responsible for walking, feeding, socializing and comforting these dogs, getting several of them more used to human interaction. We also bathed and groomed dogs as needed. My passion for dogs and other animals inspired me to start pet sitting and dog walking locally, for neighbors and other friends and clients throughout my home town. I acted as a regular pet sitter and dog walker for multiple people, whenever they would leave for vacation and other holidays. During the holidays and summer vacation, I often watched up to five dogs at a time. One of my customers had four dogs of varying ages. I would walk dogs based on their individual schedules and needs as outlined by their owners, going as many times per day as requested. I began regularly pet sitting my friend’s dog who was terrified of cars and trucks but lived but lived by the side of a main road, working to increase her dog’s confidence and lower her fear. I carried this out for 4 years before moving to Florida for college. Once in college, I worked at a local dog day care for approximately five months over my last semester, getting more experience with working with a variety of dogs. I helped train several dogs with behavioral issues here, worked with dogs who were aggressive towards other dogs and people, and gained more knowledge behind the psychology of many dog behaviors. As an avid runner and rock climber, I love being outside and staying active, especially when animals are involved. I can't wait to meet and walk your dog! :)

I’m that lady who will stop and admire all dogs as I go through my day, if able. I understand dogs and what owners would wish for them.

My name is Cori, I have been a dog lover my whole life. Growing up I have always had a dog and the moment I moved out on my own I found myself a young border collie to be my new best friend. Though my life I have babysat/boarded and walked numerous dogs. Any time I see a dog on the street I always ask the owner if I can make friends with them and give them a good pet. I do take dog walking seriously, fun is very important but safety always comes first so your pet can stay healthy and happy.

Dog Walking in Reno

Just because Reno is close to a wide variety of ski resorts, doesn’t mean you and your pup have to bundle up to spend some quality time together. Instead of freezing your booties off on the slopes, head on over to Link Piazzo Dog Park at Hidden Valley Regional Park. Link Piazzo Dog Park is an off-leash park on Parkway Drive that includes a separate area for small dogs, a water fountain, and a doggie waste station.

This next park is another great place to play without fearing frostbite, but it’s not fenced in, so be sure to pay extra attention to your dog while visiting. Rancho San Rafael Dog Park sprawls over three rolling acres, which is plenty of space for even the most hyperactive of dogs. Ranch San Rafael also has a pond for dogs to cool off in and a drinking fountain.

Although this park sounds like it belongs in a different state, rest assured it is nestled in Reno. Virginia Lake Dog Park has agility equipment – perfect for dogs preparing for a show or for dogs just wanting a new form of exercise – plenty of benches, and doggie waste bags are provided throughout the park in convenient posts to help keep the park clean.

Red Hill Park in the Northeast neighborhood of Reno is great for local dog owners looking to work off some energy in their dog. The park is large enough to have several walking paths as well as open spaces to stretch out and relax. Dogs have to stay leashed on the park grounds. Ce sure to bring your own bowl, as Red Hill fountains were designed for people and are too tall for most dogs. Walking the trails is a great way to get your dog’s daily dose of exercise, especially when taking a trip to an off leash park doesn’t fit your schedule.
