Dog Walker in Minneapolis, MN

I’m a lifelong animal lover who worked as a kennel attendant as a young adult, and studied animal science and completed a veterinary internship in college. Growing up, my family had two dogs, and I occasionally worked with sled dogs. I care deeply about animals, which has lead me to become vegan and volunteer at a cat rescue and a dog rescue in the twin cities. I love walking dogs because I know I'm doing something important - helping to meet their needs for exercise, mental stimulation, and socialization - and it gives me the opportunity to be around animals (I currently don't have any pets), be active, and get outside. I understand your dog is family and will treat him or her as such. See Profile
