About Us

Twenty two years ago, I happened upon a pet adoption fair. I knew I was in trouble within the first five minutes of walking in. When I walked out, I had adopted my first dog. I already had four cats at that time, but I had no idea how much my life would change from this point on. Within a month, I moved into a house with a yard for my dog, hired a personal dog trainer, and began to learn more about dogs. That first trainer taught me something that has remained my golden rule: “Never train a dog who hasn’t exercised first.” Priceless.

As I fell in love with my new pup, I also discovered my love for hiking from walking my dog.

She and I both got exercise, and best of all, I had a much calmer and happier dog. For the past twenty five years, I have been lucky enough to have adopted six dogs. Each dog has joined me on my daily hike, and each has kept me accountable when it comes to exercising every day. Today, I have two dogs – one that is extremely happy with a half hour trot around the neighborhood, and the other who needs a strenuous two to four-mile hike. From personal experience, I know that every dog has different exercise needs.

I have always hired dog walkers to care for my dogs when I needed to work long hours. Over the years, I was fortunate enough to have hired some great dog walkers. Unfortunately, not all were great, and it never failed that all of the really good ones moved away to pursue their dream career. When my last great dog walker announced her departure, I came to a huge realization. Dog walking is my dream job! After a successful twenty-plus year career in the entertainment industry, I started Paw-destrian.

  • I needed someone I could really trust with my 15 yr old dog. Beth @ Paw-destrian has been an amazing find.  She is so dog friendly and thoughtful with my old guy. And what's even better, my dog, Memphis, took to her instantly.  And anyone with a dog will agree....a dog is the best judge of character. I love the "real time" videos - such a pleasant treat seeing my baby while i'm stuck at work all day. Highly recommend!!

  • What can say? Beth's the Best! You can't ask for a more caring and loving person. She is a total animal lover. She does an amazing job and her time stamped videos are the BEST!! What a great way to keep an eye on your dog while you're away and see that he or she is being well cared for.

  • She’s amazing! I thought her time stamped videos was a genius idea. Honestly, even without the videos, i know she does her job. She makes sure Sadie is exhausted and happy after every walk. I love that she doesn't just slowly walk her, she gets real exercise. She's 100% dependable, and you can tell that she loves animals. I can’t say enough good things about her. I will never use anybody but her.

  • Beth went over the moon for my sick cat and his brother. Bringing them toys, happily giving medication and graciously feeding and playing with them exceeded every expectation I have ever had with finding a pet sitter. I am so happy we found her and cannot wait to use her again!! Thanks Beth!!!!

  • I was referred to Beth from a vet friend of ours, show is very, very, particular about her dog and who walks it. From what i hear there are a LOT of bad to mediocre dog walkers out there who just gather up all the dogs and take them out in masse, or dump them at the park and play on their smart phone. Bethet only take out one dog at a time, so your pooch gets one-on-one attention. She really loves dogs, actually, all animals. When she comes by, she likes to say hello to my cats as well. You get texts when she gets there, and afterwards, she end you a video text. So glad i found Beth!
