Ashley's story

I live and was raised in Wisconsin. Because of this I grew up around livestock and found a deep love of animals. I always knew I wanted a job working with animals but had a hard time finding the right path. I tried doggy daycare's, took pre med vet courses, and worked in horse barns; then in 2016 I heard a radio add for dog walkers and it was most definitely a light bulb moment! I took it and ran with it. At first I started off solo with no employees and worked a part-time job. After the 1st year through word of mouth, I had so many walking clients I was turning people away! That's when I knew it was time to hire some employees and that this was much more than a hobby it is a career!
