“You can't put a price on peace of mind!”

I have been walking and sitting pets in the Dayton area for about two years, and I have never had a major incident! I think what makes me a good walker is my level of patience and my calm demeanor. I maintain the position of pack leader, while still having fun. I have had experience with dogs of all sizes and ages, and even other furry/scaley friends! There's no pet I can't handle. I understand that not everyone has the time or ability to walk their dog every day, so I'm here to help!

Hi! I'm Ash and I'm currently a medical student at Wright State University, but I don't quite have the time to own a pup myself, so I love walking them for fun! I used to walk one of my friend's doggos when he wasn't at home and really loved spending time with his dog and having a reason to be outside. My family used to own a dog, so I have some experience taking care of them as well.

Springfield dog lovers agree and with over 13,000 dogs, there is always something fun to do with Fido when you visit.
