She didn't have dogs growing up, but Andrea vividly remembers her first time meeting one. Her aunt adopted a Chow puppy and Andrea remembers a "little, fluffy bowling ball" running out of the car towards her... and she's been a dog lover ever since!

At her past jobs, Andrea would get home from work and dread going back the next day. Since she's been working for DDWPS, she wakes up in the morning filled with excitement and anticipation to spend time with her favorite pups! She even feels a change in her overall personality since she's been with Dan's Dog Walking; her once introverted and shy personality has blossomed into the bubbly and upbeat Andrea that you might see strolling the streets with a smile!

She loves all of the pups that she takes care of, but Andrea has a particularly close relationship with Omar whom she sometimes sees twice a day; the duo have had some unusually eventful walks together! She described how, early in the summer, her and Omar found themselves being bombarded by a pair of birds that nested just up the block from Omar's house. Ever since their encounter, both her and Omar look our for each other by watching the trees and the sky as they walk around the neighborhood! Knowing that Omar is easily frightened, Andrea once carried him out to the road for their walk so that he wouldn't get scared of the loud trucks in front of his house!

Andrea is a valuable member of the DDWPS team because of her natural understanding of a dog's attitude and behavior, making her great and handling "rough" dogs with ease. A neighbor of a client who usually sees the owner getting dragged down the road by their two dogs actually commented on how she can't believe that Andrea doesn't get pulled just the same!

As if that wasn't enough, Andrea is also a wonderful photographer and takes great picture of all of the pups that she spends time with! Check out our Instagram page and try not to smile at her adorable photos!
