Hi, I'm Gretchen and I want to walk your dog!

I started this business almost a decade ago, because of one simple reason:  I love dogs.  

Dogs are my passion, I love what I do, and it shows.  While your dog is in my care, your pup will be cared for and loved like they are my own.  I am also licensed, bonded and insured for your peace of mind.


I am a born and raised Seattlelite and love this city... the rain, the wind, the sun, the snow... and sometimes all in one day!  But the thing I probably love most about this city is its love for pups.  The fact that we can go to almost any neighborhood and find a dog friendly bar or restaurant is pretty dang cool.  


How did I get here?  Well, for years I worked in merchandising, climbing the retail ladder, and eventually ending my retail career with Nike.  It was one day, while I was out on a walk with my dog, her little nose sniffing every blade of grass, her happy tail wagging away, I thought to myself, "this is all I want to do!".  So I traded in the folding boards for some leashes and poop bags and never looked back!

Since starting Bow Wow Walk, my family has grown.  I added a husband, a dog and now a baby.  Even with my growing family, my love for my business and helping others care for their dogs hasn't changed.

My happy place is a car full of dogs, a cup of coffee, heading to the dog park.

Woof Woof!
