Dog Walker Blogger Introduction

For those of you who are reading this blog, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Elliot, and I live on the Upper West Side of New York City with my wife Karen, and our dog Lucy (a Puggle – half Beagle and half Pug). Just about every morning, my wife and I take Lucy to Central Park, where she has the chance to play with other dogs, get some exercise, and explore.

Although I work from home and rarely need a dog walker for Lucy, I found that finding one was a bit difficult. We have a couple of reliable dog walkers in our building, but I realize that many people may not be so lucky. Because I couldn’t find one central source of dog walker listings, I decided to make one.

I bought DogWalker.com in October of 2009 from the person who initially registered it in the 1990s but hadn’t built a website. It’s taken several weeks, but after working with a designer and programmer, I have launched this new website, which I hope you will like. In addition, I created this blog, so I can share stories with you about Lucy and other dog walking tidbits I see and hear.

If you are a dog walker and would like to contribute blog posts on DogWalker.com, please contact me.  I look forward to sharing dog walking stories with you!
