Hey y’all! My name is Kim, I am a disabled dog walker and artist. I’ve been a professional dog walker since 2012 and artist forever and a day. Born and raised in Washington D.C. My disability does not hinder my dog walking in anyway.
I have two dogs, both rescues. Kevin and Oliver. I also have a cat, Karl Marx, also a rescue. I love all dogs and am able to handle all breeds and dogs with special needs. I also do basic training on walks if your dog is going through being trained or needs update training. I do not walk dogs in groups in the city as I like to have the dogs I care for to have my undivided attention. This is also is the reason I do not listen to music or use my phone during walks. Unless of course there is an emergency or we are in a safe place where I can take cute pics and videos for you (sent with updates). I will walk up to 3 dogs if they are from the same building and/or apartment/house and only if they are friends. There are too many dangerous items on the sidewalks and roads of DC (broken glass, chicken bones, etc); too many possibilities for your dog to get hurt if being walked in a large group. I treat your dog how I treat my own. They are your children. As such I guard them with all my care. Walks are generally between 20 and 30 minutes long. I concentrate on walking dogs in the neighborhoods of Mt. Pleasant, Lanier Heights, and Adams Morgan. Rates are kept low on purpose ($20/wlk). I’m in this business for the free love I get from being with dogs all day long. My best friend and partner in all things dogs, is David Paulson. I do most of the walking and he hosts dogs at his place. Host rates are kept low as well-$50/day for hosting (Dave loves dogs as much as I do!). We walk dogs throughout the week, Monday through Friday. 10:30am to 4:30pm. There are times we do evenings and weekends, just ask! No cancellation fees! Even if last minute!! We do not do same day appointments. Have cats and/or fish? We can care for you fur balls and wet ones as well. Ask for rates. During the pandemic, we take the utmost care to be safe. We carry hand sanitizer with us, wear gloves, masks and face shields. However you wish your dog to be picked up for your safety, let us know and we will do it. You don’t have to worry about p**p bags and treats. We take care of everything in consideration of course with your dogs allergies, if any. We also know tons of dog walkers and are happy to reference them to you if you are out of our dog walking range. Looking for some cuteness to hang up on your wall? Check out my dog portraits. I do drawings and paintings. We do monthly or bi-weekly billing. Just tell us what you prefer! Have any questions, thoughts, concerns, please contact us!
