Daily dog walking is an important part of your pet’s health and well being. When you live with a dog, or multiple dogs, taking them out for a walk or to the park is just something you do day after day, year after year.  It becomes a natural part of both of your lives.

A dog walker is the substitute, the person who will care for your dog when you are not able to do so.

The relationship I form with each dog I walk is the most important aspect of my work with each dog, as everything that happens between us is going to flow from this foundation.  Walking a dog five days a week, year after year, builds a long term relationship of trust and care between me and the dog.  I get to know each dog well; I watch the dog go through stages of their life, through illness or injuries, and I learn how best to support the dog as he or she ages.

Having one dog walker has its benefits; I form a deep bond with each dog over time. There is trust, dependability and reliability, and I have a sense of what is normal for each dog or when the dog does not seem well.

I provide either leashed walks with one dog at a time, or with multiple dogs from one household, and off leash play at a dog park or dog beach.
