Jerry G

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker
Hi! I'm Jerry, I'm an east coast transplant though I've been in Colorado over 20 years now. Love that Colorado lifestyle! I've been running marathons for a long time and I'm almost finished with my goal of running a marathon in all fifty states.its been an amazing journey. I'm a huge dog lover and it make me happy seeing dogs out there getting in a good run I'm looking forward to giving your dog a great workout! 

Ben J

Position: Dog Runner & Walker
Hello my name Is Ben! I'm extremely excited to be able to work with your four legged friend! I have been a dog lover my entire life and I have yet to meet a pup I didn't like! In one way or another I have cared for dogs my whole life. Growing up my family owned and loved a handful of amazing dogs that helped teach me respect for animals. As an adult I have spent time dog sitting for friends when they are out of town. I have been a vegetarian for 11 years and a firm supporter of animal rights. Aside from my love of dogs I am also passionate about maintaining a healthy active lifestyle. Growing up I participated in activities such as soccer, baseball, tennis, fencing, and wrestling. Since moving to Denver 3 years ago I have discovered a love for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu taking classes several times per week. I can't wait to meet your pup!

Christopher K:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker
Since I was a child, dogs have always been a significant part of my life. Moving out to Colorado for college from the East was an exciting change in my life. But it was also a difficult change, because I had to leave my canine brother, Sampson, behind. I applied to be a Denver Dog Jogger to incorporate dogs back into my life in a productive and healthy way. I love fitness and I love sharing the experience with a willing companion. Whether leisurely walking or briskly running, I look forward to hitting the trails with your pooch! 
Dog Runners Denver - Samantha

Samantha M:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker
Working for Denver Dog Joggers is honestly a dream job for me. It combines two of my passions which are animals and running. I have been a pet sitter and dog walker for five years now, caring for everything from dogs and cats to chickens, goats and pigs. Before moving to Colorado, I regularly volunteered at a pig rescue near Portland, OR, which is my favorite volunteering experience to date! I became a runner in high school where I ran cross country and track. I have participated in many different races around the country and completed the Portland Marathon four times. Not long ago, I lost my dog that I ran with regularly to cancer. I miss him and running with him terribly. My two other dogs are walkers, but not runners, so this job is filling a void in my life. I am looking forward to meeting and running with your dogs in the future! 

Matt W:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker
Hi, I'm Matt! Originally from St. Louis, I moved to the Denver area 5 years ago, and I absolutely love it here. The climate is ideal for running, nearly year-round too! I've been running a few days a week since I moved here. I have much experience in pet care as well, having had many pets growing up, and professionally looking after, and exercising, dogs for nearly 3 years. Of any pet, I love dogs the most! They are generally very loving and loyal. What better best friend can a man(or woman) ask for?  
Your loving companion will be in good hands when I look after and/or exercise them. The Denver Dog Joggers Team is a good quality group of people, and I am proud to be a part of it. Thank you and see you soon!

Emma W:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker

I’m excited to be working for Denver Dog Joggers so that I can incorporate two things I love- dogs, and staying active! I have always found the importance of keeping good physical and mental health, and this job combines both of those ideas. I am a native of Colorado and have loved hiking, and being outdoors my whole life. I grew up with dogs and other animals my whole life and I absolutely adore the positivity and joy they bring to our lives. I think animals deserve the treat of fun and staying active, and it’s amazing to incorporate that with running. As of now, I don’t own a dog so I am thrilled that I can find a way to still hang out with them in way that is beneficial to us both!\

Sidny S:

Position: Backup Dog runner & Dog walker

Hi! My name is Sidny Szabo and I enjoy being active through running, hiking, mountain biking and really anything that involves the outdoors. I grew up with dogs all my life, adding up to 4 dogs at once in my household. I grew to love and know them as my brothers and sisters. I now own two wonderful pups of my own. One is a 2 year old Weimaraner/Lab mix and the other is a 4 month old Boxer/Lab mix. I recently graduated from Regis University with a Bachelors in Biology. I am currently trying to pursue graduate school and am in high hopes to be accepted into a Doctor of Physical Therapy program this year. In the meantime I am working as a part-time Nanny and as a runner/walker for Denver Dog Joggers!

Hi, I’m Matt, a Colorado native with a love of running, dogs and the great outdoors; making this my ideal part-time job! Aside from several months on an archaeological dig in the Peruvian Andes, and two years living in Hawai’i, I’ve dedicated the past decade to transforming the hospitality industry here in Colorado, while spending any free time running as much as possible. I’m a big believer in the importance of health and fitness for both humans and animals, and I look forward to contributing to your dog’s happiness! 

Lauren B:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker

Hi! I am Lauren! I moved here from Massachusetts about two years ago. I love it here and plan to stick around this great state for awhile! Running and running with dogs has been a big part of my life since I was a young. I have run a handful of half marathons but yet to make the plunge to a full marathon. I am currently in PT school allowing for more time for me to get outside and would love to spend that free time with your dog! Dogs have a wonderful ability to always brighten my day and especially my runs. I am excited to be part of a great team and can’t wait to keep your pup active!”

Anne J:

Position: Quality Controller & Dog runner & Dog walker

Hola dog lovers! I'm Anne. I am originally from Chicago but have called the great city and state of Denver, Colorado home for the past 7 years. I love the Chicago Cubs, skiing, snowboarding, and a good pint of beer. I am a Boston Marathoner and ultra runner in my spare time (basically when I am not running and walking your pups!) I have been blessed to have worked with Denver Dog Joggers since January 2016 as a dog runner and walker. My affection for dogs of all breeds, ages, shapes and sizes has grown tremendously. I want to care for every dog I see! 
Recently I have advanced my role with DDJ and serve as a Quality Controller several days a week. This is a job in which I provide crucial monitoring and support for both runners and clients. I serve as a resource for runners to make sure they have all the tools they need to successfully care for our clients. I also step in in the event of an emergency or a complication to attend to clients myself or to help train runners who need assistance. I do whatever I can to assure that we deliver the nurturing care and timely service that our clientele has come to expect for their furry family members.

I've worked for Denver Dog Joggers for over five years. I've been around dogs my entire life and am comfortable handling any breed.  I love dogs and I love running, making DDJ my perfect part time job.  I'm currently studying sports medicine at Metropolitan University. I'm a huge fan of martial arts and compete competitively in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I look at DDJ not just as a job I love, but also a way to improve myself in the world of martial arts, so I take my work at DDJ to heart.

Hi dog lovers! My name is Craig and I've been with the DDJ team since February, 2014. I've had the pleasure of making all different types of new furry friends and letting them keep me in shape. My passions include the beautiful Colorado outdoors and going on adventures with my own pup. 
Representing DDJ as a quality controller has given me the responsibility of monitoring and supporting both runners and client's. My job is to assist with any issues that might come up and make sure operations run smoothly. It is of utmost importance for our client's to get what they paid for and receive uninterrupted service. I'm here to make your experience with DDJ the best possible!

Grace L:

Position: Backup Runner & Walker

Hi there! My name is Grace and I moved to Colorado almost 2 years ago from Kansas! I'm currently in graduate school, pursuing my Masters of Arts in Counseling. I have a 160 lb. English Mastiff named Cooper, who thinks he's lap dog! His best friend is my cat, Anabelle, who thinks she's also a dog. Since I was little, I grew up playing soccer and continue to do so, but have always enjoyed running on my own. I also used to be a dog trainer and did most of my work with positive reinforcement techniques. I'm excited to be able to combine my passion for exercising and my love for animals into a job! I can't wait to meet your pet companion!

Caitlin B:

Position: Dog Runner & Walker

Hi! I’m Caitlin. I am an Indiana native and moved to Denver this summer for graduate school at the University of Colorado Denver to study environmental science and hydrology. I love to run and have been running since high school, where I ran cross country and track and then continued to compete through college. I’m so excited to work with Denver Dog Joggers! I sadly had to leave my four-legged friend back home in Indiana, so getting to spend time with dogs while doing one of my favorite things makes my day! I look forward to getting to meet your pups and giving them healthy exercise while having fun!' 

Sara S:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker

Hi! I'm Sara and could not be more excited to work with Denver Dog Joggers!! This is honestly a dream job that combines two loves of mine... running and animals. Before embarking on this endeavor I was always envious of other Runner's out in the beautiful Colorado weather with a buddy by their side. Now it's my turn. While I have a kitty at home I have always had dog, big and small, and take every opportunity given to walk/ jog or sit others furry friends. I have a passion for giving belly rubs and loving on animals. I am dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle that I firmly believe should be passed on to our four legged friends and look forward to aiding in the overall health ad happiness of your dog!

Rebecca W:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker

I am so excited and proud to be a Denver Dog Jogger! There is nothing in life that I am more sensitive and passionate about than dogs. My two hound mutts bring so much happiness to my life with their quirky personalities and all of their shenanigans. We especially love hiking and exploring the outdoor world together. One of my dogs likes to pull me on my scooter for miles, and it is nice to see him finally look satisfied when we are done. Running is my other main hobby, and it has been a big part of my life for a long time. DDJ has already brought a renewed sense of joy and purpose to my running routine! This job couldn't be a better fit for me, and I can't wait to get outside for quality time with your pups!

Holly G:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker

Hi, I'm Holly and I'm a transplant from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I've been in Colorado over 15 years and love it! I'm a high energy, active person who loves to run. I also love dogs. As a regular contributor to ASPCA and Denver Dumb Friends league I'm dedicated to the kind treatment of animals. I've adopted all my past dogs (and cats) from animal shelters - and my current pal, Shadow, is a bit too Senior to continue joining me with my running. So I'm excited to have your 4 legged family members join me in my passion for a healthy life! I'm thankful for Team DDJ and their commitment to the welfare of dogs in our community!

Kelsey S:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker

Hello Everyone! My name is Kelsey, and I just moved to Colorado in August 2015. I am originally from Nebraska, but the beauty of Colorado couldn’t keep me away. I received a degree in Psychology from Doane University in Nebraska back in 2015, and I am currently getting my Master’s in Counseling at Colorado Christian University. I chose to join the Denver Dog Joggers so that I could earn a little extra money, get some great exercise, but most importantly, to hang out with my canine friends! I have an 8- month old yellow lab of my own, but she is currently back in Nebraska with her dad while I am in school. I miss her like crazy, which is why I am so excited to hang out with your doggie friends! I love to exercise, and I love a good companion while doing it, so I might as well have the best of both worlds!

Kayla B:

Position: Dog runner & Dog walker

A Colorado Native, I grew up loving the outdoors, animals and being fit n’ healthy. You can find me camping, hiking, snowboarding, or spending time with my own 2 dogs, 2 cats and husband. Getting to join DDJ is combining two of my favorite things, running and dogs. Ever since I was little I have had a passion to work with animals. I went to vet tech school and got my Associates in Veterinary Technology. Outside DDJ I currently work at an Animal Hospital as a Veterinary Technician. I’ve been a runner as long as I can remember.  Getting to take my own dog on a run is so satisfying, and seeing her excitement makes my day. I am super excited to be able to bring that joy to other dogs as well.

Hi! I'm Rosie, and I could not be more excited to join the Denver Dog Joggers team! I am an Illinois native and moved here in June 2016. I am a nurse and work in surgery but love to spend my days off running in this beautiful Colorado weather and what better way to do it than with some four-legged friends! I grew up with dogs and unfortunately had to leave my two back home in Illinois so I'm thrilled to be able to care for and love on your dogs! I've been running since high school and it is a strong passion of mine. I cannot wait to meet your pups while giving them some fun exercise!
