My Approach

My approach is simple: to help ensure the happiness of dogs and their owners alike by assisting with every day care, play, and well-being through dog walking services. I share with the dog owners that rewarding feeling both spiritually and emotionally knowing that together we are taking a step to keep a dog healthy, and in a happy home. Chris White, The Dog Walker is dedicated to ensuring this balance.

My Story

I grew up in Queensbury in Upstate New York and attended Siena College, where I earned a degree in Marketing and Management. Following college I worked for the next ten years, primarily in sales. Eventually I reached a crossroads in my career and wondered “what’s next?” Frustrated, I questioned if there was a greater purpose for me. A light bulb went off one day when I was asked, “When are you the happiest?” The answer came in less than ten seconds, “When I am playing with a dog.” I grew up around dogs, and I am happiest when around my four legged friends.

My friends and family encouraged me to find a way to make a career that involved caring for dogs. This defining moment gave me just the motivation I needed to start Chris White, The Dog Walker. I am so proud to now live by one of my favorite mantra’s, “The man who loves what he does, never works a day in his life.”

I support a force free and gentle method of both training and raising dogs. While there are many philosophies and methods of bringing out the best in mans best friend I find time, patience, and consistency are the most fulfilling and successful for both owner and pet.
