Great outings...

 

....begin with a tailored walk that best suits your pal!  Romping around the neighborhood with new friends, taking quieter streets for seniors.

 

And if they're tired, or not digging the rain or summer's heat, we can have some play-time back at your place.  It's all about your dog's enjoyment!

I do personalized pairing with other doggy clients, and never walk more than three dogs at a time (1-2 is the usual maximum).

 

To make sure I have the best knowledge possible for your beloved pet, I've completed multiple training books & training courses. If you'd like to research the canine mind a bit more, please review the books I've read & recommend on this page.
