MEET 

OUR TEAM

All of our dog walkers undergo an extensive screening process, background check, are hired as W-2 employees, and are continually trained and developed while they are working for us. You can rely on us to provide you with a level of service and reliability that you will not find with any other company.

Joshua - Owner

Originally from Nashville, TN, I moved to Denver in 2010 and have never looked back. Like a lot of people here, I love to hike, camp, bike, snowboard and just take advantage of everything that Colorado has to offer. And if dog's are allowed, my sidekick Maverick is usually with me. I started Updog with the idea that we would take something that so many people do and execute it in a way that no one else does. I constantly strive to provide a level of service and an experience that is unmatched in Denver. I make it my personal mission to ensure that you and your canines are well taken care of and get only the best treatment possible.

 

My staff and ​I are eager to build lasting relationships with members of Denver's dog community. I know I speak for my entire team when I say that we can't wait to meet you and your doggies. At Updog, we are all truly "dog people" with a genuine passion for your furry friends. There aren't many better ways to spend the day than in the company of a happy dog!

Amy - Dog Walker

Hello, I'm Amy! I grew up in Colorado and attended the Art Institute of Colorado where I received my BA in Media Arts and Animation in 2010. I adore animals and have been a pet owner my whole life. I have two little dogs, Muffin the Maltepoo and Noodle the Poodle. They mostly like to sleep (or steal garbage to eat).

 

In my free time I can be found at home snuggled with my dogs working on my artwork. I'm a huge science fiction and fantasy nerd and love action/adventure films and animated movies/shows. I also love spending time outdoors and going on adventures with my S/O any chance we can get!

 

I love being part of Updog team and I can't wait to meet you and your furry friends! I couldn't be more happy to be able to spend my time creating art and caring for dogs!

Gina - Dog Walker

Hi I'm Gina! I love the outdoors, traveling, and riding my bike. I got into dog walking because I was already walking in the park daily and figured it would be awesome to have furry companions join me.

 

I walk my friends dog Hunter all the time. She is a beautiful Husky (as you can see in the picture), and when I go to her house and she sees me, she gets so happy she will grab her leash and wait at the gate wagging her tail. She is always so excited and I feel her excitement and see the love in her eyes, which makes me happy.

I absolutely love walking dogs and really enjoy this job!

Nicole - Dog Walker

Hi there! I’m Nicole and that’s Pakkun. We’re both Colorado natives and still loving everything about our state. We find new adventures daily, and enjoy most activities outdoors, like long walks around the city, dog park hangs, hiking, biking, boating and camping. We live in a big house with lots of fur babies too, so lots of friends for Pakkun and me. I also grew up with multiple pets, including; dogs, cats, ferrets, fish, birds, bunnies, and I currently have a hedgehog named Hedgefer Lopez, thats Pakkun's sister.

I’m originally from Boulder, but have lived in Denver for the last 10 years. I have worked in the canine industry for eight of those years. I absolutely love working with dogs and want to continue a career around them. I love being outside and seeing dogs happy!! That’s why I can't wait to meet all your pups!!!

Mel - Dog Walker

Hi I’m Mel and this is my pup Tequila! I’m a Colorado native and just recently moved to Denver. I graduated from Colorado Mesa University with a degree in Business Marketing. I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life and am so excited to have my own dog here with me in Denver. 

 

I have a passion for a pups and the outdoors, and I am so excited to mix the two with Updog. I love to hike, walk, and especially run! I’m so excited to meet your pups and have some fun walks with them!

Lacy - Dog Walker

Hi I'm Lacy and I'm Denver transplant who loves all dogs from big to small. I have two dogs myself, Kila & Disco. I love the outdoors and have been in Colorado for 4 years. I work in marketing when not walking dogs and can be found camping or hiking trails on the weekends.

Chris - Dog Walker

Hey, I'm Chris! I am local artist/performer and a dog lover, I grew up around dogs of all kinds, from wild mountain dogs to prim and proper pocket pets. My first priority is fun - a happy dog is a healthy dog!

 

I grew up in the mountains and have called Colorado home for 12 years. You can't live here that long without developing some sort of sporty lifestyle, so I'm very excited to hit the streets of Denver with the dogs and get moving! Let's go!

Nancy - Dog Walker

Hello Updog family! My name is Nancy and this is my Jeep dog Blaze. I've been working with dogs (mostly) for the past 10 years. Dogs are my passion, I have 4 total! When I'm not walking dogs you can find Blaze and I out 4wheeling the backcountry of Colorado or at Westminister Hills off leash dog park.

Jayci - Substitute Dog Walker

Hi, I'm Jayci! I am a Colorado native with a passion for the outdoors. I am currently in nursing school and found that dog walking was a great mix to fit my current lifestyle. I get to be active and brighten may day with four-legged friends who enjoy being outside as much as I do. My two dogs Cooper (left) and Ranger (right) are two of the goofiest dogs I have met but I enjoy their sassy attitudes. 

 

I have grown up around dogs my whole life and they truly make my heart happy. I love that dogs all have such varied personalities and they make adventuring a treat every time. I can't wait to meet your furry companions! 

Alex - Substitute Dog Walker

Hi y’all, I’m Alex! Born and raised Texan, and graduated from the University of North Texas.

Thanks to an awesome job, I’ve recently moved from Dallas to the Mile-High City (shoutout Gymshark). Outside of work, I’m either hiking around, lifting at the gym or being a massive foodie.

 

Even since I was a kid, I’ve always had a furry friend by my side. My heart absolutely melts when I see ANY dogs, and I truly treat them as if they were my own. This also includes, dare I say it, CATS!

 

So happy I found Updog because it really gives me the opportunity to get away from the office, and be outdoors with pups. Just don’t tell my dog, Snowy, or he’d be quite jealous. Looking forward to meeting all of y’all and your lovely, adorable dogs!
