The Dog Jogs Story

You probably have a friend (or two) who can’t walk past a dog without admiring them and then talking about them for the next block or two — Nikki and Steph are those people! Nikki grew up with a family dog and always wanted one of her own. When she rescued Koda, a senior dog, she was looking for a running buddy and a friendly companion, but she got way more than she signed up for.

Koda had previously been adopted and returned at least three times before he found Nikki. He came to her with some intense separation anxiety and she found exercise to be her most valuable tool in keeping Koda calm and comfortable.

Shift work made Nikki and Koda’s life together a bit tricky at times, which inspired Nikki and Steph to start Dog Jogs! There were many long shifts that Nikki had to spend away from Koda while friends and family helped care for (and exercise) him. Knowing he was tired and relaxed at home gave her peace of mind.

Now Nikki, Steph, and their team are excited to provide services to people with many different work and life situations who benefit from that same peace of mind.
