Dogs and the art of walking.

I have been walking dogs for 6 years now and I never get tired of it. My clients range from tiny Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Shih Tzus, to large Golden Retrievers and Yellow Labs. Of course, there is always the lovable mutt, who always has a great personality and winning ways.

Simon, Golden Retriever, loves to walk in the snow.

There is never a day that goes by that I don’t feel really lucky to be working in a profession where my clients give unconditional love, and never complain. We are outside walking, me and my furry friends – through various neighborhoods, taking in all our surroundings – a fun daily excursion! No matter what the weather, we go walking. I’ve learned to appreciate, snow, sleet, rain and of course, those beautiful sunny days which are few and far between in Minnesota. There is no weather that can’t be tolerated if you dress appropriately. Like mom always said, “make sure you wear a hat and mittens.”

I have also learned that dogs and cats are the most appreciative beings on the face of the planet. Pets will always give love and always accept you, just the way you are. Because of this, I know that I have the best job in the world.
