“Energetic, Active and Experienced Walker!”

Hi! I cover Wisconsin Rapids/Plover/Stev. Point/Port Ed./Nekoosa areas. I started my own dog walking and pet sitting business in Port Edwards at the age of 12 with the goal of earning enough money to purchase my own furry friend. I started with one family down the street earning $3/hour. I hand made and posted every advertisement myself & within a year I had my own pup and 10-15 reoccurring regular clients. This app has allowed me to evolve my childhood dream and help fund my college education.

I am a dog walker and pet sitter specializing in the care of reactive, dog-aggressive, and special needs dogs. I am not a trainer, but my unique upbringing has given me the skills necessary to allow "bad" dogs to enjoy outings safely. I am a firm believer that even aggressive dogs deserve to go on walks, they just need to be shown how to handle the outside world. I am happy to walk social pups as well!
