For as long as I can remember I’ve been an avid animal lover. I grew up with dogs, chickens, horses and a steer, and have been told my entire life I just ‘have a way’ with all animals. I’ve been working for Walk This Way since I moved to California a year ago and it’s by far the best job I’ve ever had. Previously, I would pet sit in Colorado; dogs, horses, goats, and cats! I feel beyond blessed to get paid to be with my furry friends everyday. The love of dogs is like no other.
I have been drawn to animals, especially dogs, since I was young. I’ve had pets all my life, from pit bull boxers to cocker spaniels to shih tzus. I love getting to work amongst all of our cute and loveable dogs. I know each dog is special and has it’s own personality. I am fortunate to be able to work at Walk This Way with some amazing fur companions.
I have been a dog lover All my life! I’m a chocoholic too. Working for Walk This Way is Heaven for me! I've been working for Niki since August 2009, and I still can't believe I get paid to do this. And if I use the word "work", I put it in quotes because it doesn't seem like "work". We have so many Fantastic dogs, and I just love watching them play and have so much fun together!!
I have always had a love for all animals. Having worked as a veterinary technician for 15 yrs in practices from Boston to Colorado that treated small animals like birds, iguanas and turtles to larger animals like cats, dogs and the occasional baby elk! I also volunteered at the New England Aquarium in Boston, feeding orphaned baby harbor seal pups in order to get them strong and old enough for release.
What I love most about this job is being able to be around such gentile, calming souls. It's hard to have a bad day when you're surrounded by such happy, wiggly, loving fur babies! I love our Clients as much as their doggies and treat their 4 legged companions as if they were my own.

Ok, I'm not officially employed, but I sure am part of the team!
You might see me herding the pack or sleeping in the car on the way home. I love to "work" at Walk This Way CA. Livin' the Dream!
I have always loved animals, especially dogs. I've spent my whole life with them. It started when I was a toddler and we got our first Yorkshire Terrier. By the time I was in elementary school I was lucky enough to get my own Pomeranian.
My dog career started at a doggy daycare/overnight facility where I worked for 3+ years. I learned a lot about all breeds of dogs there.
I now have an Alaskan Malamute named Aloy who's 3 years old and is my world. I love getting to know every dog I walk (and their humans). It enjoy learning more about our furry little friends every day.
