- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to meet with the customer and their dog before we go for our run, then I take the dog in my car (for group runs) to a park where there’s plenty of room to multiple dogs, or for solo runs, I’ll run my client’s dog around their neighborhood, and in about 25 minutes, my client’s dog is thoroughly exercised and ready to relax.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I’m a fitness enthusiast and NAFC certified personal trainer, so I gear my workouts with dogs around the similar premise of workouts with people.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
When the pandemic hit, i moved to Maryland with my dog Tucker to be closer to family. My family loves my dog, so they made a habit of feeding him treats in excess every day. Tucker put on weight, and because he has a heart murmur and is predisposed to hip dysplasia among other health concerns, my veterinarian recommended that I help him lose weight. I was studying to get my personal training certification, which gave me the idea to start running Tucker instead of walking. In 6 months, he lost 9 lbs from 30 lbs of body weight, his nails are trimmed (without the fear of cutting too close to the quick), and he seems much happier.
