“Animal welfare is my full time job!”

I grew up with dogs and have always had them in my life. Since moving 3 years ago, I travel a lot for work and am not able to have my own. I'm hoping to be friends with your dog to help fill that gap! I love being outdoors and spending time with animals, so walking dogs is one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. I work full time in animal welfare, but frequently walk pups during my lunch time. I have a background in surgical support, IV administration, oral med admin, and critical care.

I have owned a dog/dogs for my entire life. Currently I have 2 rescue dogs who I have had since they were pups and they are both 13 years old. I enjoy going on walks/hikes to keep active and they are always more enjoyable with a furry companion.

I'm a dog-lover studying at UW, and I've been pet sitting and walking dogs since I was a kid. I've mainly walked and taken care of my family's dog, Ringo, a Morkie for several years. Beyond that, I have gotten to walk dogs (both small and large) for family friends and neighbors over the years. Pet sitting is another fun opportunity that I've done before with neighbors' dogs. Overall, I’m always excited to meet new dogs and get them walking/active, smiling and feeling happy!

Columbus is a city in south-central Wisconsin with a population of more than 5,000 people. Columbus is less than 30 miles from the big city of Madison, Wisconsin, and it is conveniently situated along five major highway corridors. Columbus has something to offer everyone, whether it's touring the historic downtown with your dog at your side, visiting the largest antique mall in the state, fishing, swimming, or shopping! Many of the 20th-century homes in Columbus have been beautifully restored, and they blend in beautifully with the new commercial and residential buildings all around town. There is also an excellent veterinary clinic in town to tend to your pets!
