I am a dog walker and I LOVE my job! I think I am the luckiest guy I know.
Getting to know the individual personalities and quirks of each dog in my care is a great privilege. Every day something very special happens. It could be something as simple as a quick, loving glance from a Golden Retriever as we walk his neighbourhood in Monarch Park. Or a hilarious, quizzical expression on the face of an Irish Terrier in Danforth Village.
I would never be able to capture these funny or touching moments in a photograph. When walking, the dogs require my full attention – and these moments happen so quickly and unexpectedly anyway.
Some clients like to receive the occasional photo update so I send them when I am able – either by text or twitter. Some of these photo updates are below along with other photos of Edgar (my Golden Doodle) and his neighbourhood friends.
