Lori's 'Bout the Journey

 Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Service 


As a dog walker I can honestly say that dogs are all about the journey rather than the destination. They stop and sniff the air, taking in all the aromas around them. They are reading the air, the grass, and the path

with their noses. They enjoy each little stop along the way. Inevitably whenever I am in a hurry they are not. They take it all in, not worried about schedules or even tomorrow's walk. They aren't looking for that special place to "end up," they simply enjoy the path along the way; to them the journey is truly the destination.

About Lori

Hello and welcome to Lori's 'BOUT THE JOURNEY website!

My name is Lori Dupes and I am a pet lover! I've had pets all my life and began my journey as a paid dog walker  when I started walking dogs for a Senior citizen. I loved it and through word of mouth began my Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Service in my local community. I don't see your pet as just an animal but as one of the family, my own! I work through referrals which has worked out very well for both the owners and myself. If you'd like more information about my services please email me at zukeeper6@aol.com


Potty Breaks

Perfect for those long days while you are at work. Each visit is up to 30 minutes and includes (depending on the weather) a walk or playtime in the yard, food and Rx if needed and always fresh water and lots of hugs! Also, you can expect any packages left at your door to be brought inside safe and sound. Depending on the time of day, lights can be turned on so you won't be coming home to a dark house. Prices are based on the number of dogs. 

Doggie & Cat Day Care:

 In the comfort or your own home. Each visit can range from one to three hours. Services include the same as a potty break above, and also include bringing in mail, garbage cans, and rotating lights, if applicable. Prices are customized accordingly. 

Over Night Stay:

Why send your pet to a kennel  for the night? I come to your home and make sure your pet and home are kept safe. Services include a ten hour visit which includes two potty breaks, breakfast, Rx administration, bringing in mail, garbage cans, packages, rotating lights and blinds if necessary. Prices are based on the number of dogs.
