Thanks for visiting my site! The first step is making your way here, the next step is signing your pup up for some fun adventures! Do you ever feel bad that you have to leave your furry four-legged family member at home while you are off to work? Well, that’s why I’m here! My name is Katie and I am a dog owner. I began a year and a half ago walking neighbor’s dogs and I realized there are a lot of bored dogs that just need to get out and walk during the day. Some dogs may not be up for a long walk. They just might need to stretch their legs and have a potty break outside! Whatever your dog’s needs, I would love the opportunity to work with you and your canine companion!

Meet Your Dog Walker:

I have lived in Escondido my whole life. I received my teaching credential in June of 2002 from California State University San Marcos. I had a passion for teaching. However, at the time I had a much greater calling, which was to take care of my 91 year old grandma. I took care of my grandmother until she reached the amazing age of 99 years old. I had an innate ability to care of others and I loved what I did. I found that I love to care for friend’s pets. I needed an outlet where I could join together my love for the outdoors, being active, and taking care of animals! Dog walking seemed to be a natural solution to join my passions together.


Southern California has some amazing places to hike! I am a huge fan of hiking and I believe that was the start of my passion for dog walking. I began by hiking one mile at a time. Coincidently, I found that my next door neighbor’s dog Missy happened to be home by herself during the day. I wasn’t sure how far a five pound chorkie could go, for you hybrid-dog novices this is a Chihuahua-Yorkshire Terrier mix. However, I have her easily walking three to five miles a day now! I was primarily a cat lover before I met “Missy.” My oldest cat is a nineteen year old tabby cat. I thought if you love cats there could be no place for dogs! I was wrong! Not only did my love for hiking begin, but I also fell in love with a dog! I realized that other dogs would enjoy hiking just as much as Missy does!

I recently adopted a 4.5 pound Chiweenie (Chihuahnua-Daschund mix) named Charlotte, who is teaching me the importance of canine training! She definitely keeps me on my toes these days!
