Nancy the Dog Walker

About Nancy

Nancy with Sky & Daphne

Must Love Dogs Dog Excursions began years ago in Alaska with Chloe, the Wonder Dog. She was my first black lab and the smartest dog I’d ever known. Fast forward to Chloe’s parting and our rescue of a beautiful Labradoodle, Sky. Sky was not socialized properly and has taught us what dogs need: a lot of exercise, experience with other dogs and people, and consistency across environments. On a mission to improve Sky’s life and understand his behaviors, we’ve completed many specialized courses for reactive dogs and read every book we could get our hands on!

In addition to Sky, I live with my husband, Kevin and our black lab, Daphne in West Seattle. My background is in Special Education.

I believe a happy dog is a dog that is socialized and well exercised.

In my free time, I am a hiker, golfer, reader and gardener.

I provide services to the following neighborhoods in West Seattle: The Arroyos, Arbor Heights, Fauntleroy, Gatewood and Sea View. A smaller service area means less time in the car before and after walks.
