Funny Pitbull Portrait


The Happy Walker is Jesse Christen. He loves your pet as much as you do. As a lifelong dog enthusiast, Jesse has been caring for dogs for his entire life. After getting fed up with the corporate grind, he decided to follow his life’s passions. And making sure that dogs are well cared for is at the top of his priority list.

“Many behavior problems can be corrected with regular exercise,” Jesse says. “Plus, a lot of health issues can be avoided, giving your pet a longer, happier life.”

Lack of exercise can lead to obesity, poor muscle tone, heart problems, bone and joint problems and emotional problems including boredom barking, anxiety and destructive behavior. Regular exercise will not only improve your dog’s health, it will make your dog a happy pup and he/she will look better too.

Many of his clients have seen a noticeable difference in their pets after several short weeks of regular exercise. Plus, he provides excellent care to pets while their owners are on vacation. Exercise and plenty of love and attention are all part of the package. 

Does your pet need more exercise, or someone to get him/her out while you’re away at work? Give the Happy Dog Walker a call today — (605) 321-0053. References available on request.
