The inspiration came to me during an early morning run in August of 2012.  I was training for the Maui Marathon, and would often run by homes with dogs in their backyard.  I knew many of them wanted to break free and enjoy some time exercising and exploring.

​It was during that run that the name "Pooch Fit" came to me.  As soon as the inspiration hit, I knew without a doubt that starting a dog running service would work.

​Fast forward to today.  I couldn't be more enthusiastic and committed to this endeavor.  Every day I'm reminded how much this time means to my "running partners."  I learned a long time ago that when you run with dogs, you're helping to fulfill a primal need for them.  Their happiness and contentment before, during, and after our sessions is why I believe so much in what I do. 

If this is a service that interests you, please get in touch with me.  I hope the FAQ section answers all of your questions.
