Ryan Jedlicka
ryan is a 28year old artist living in Bolton Hill. While presently not owning a dog of his own, he grew up with them and gets his doggie-fix by walking dogs in federal hill. He’s a fan of the big dogs but a few half-pints have won him over now and again. his long strides give your pooch “more walk per buck.” Ryan has his BS in art education and plans to secure his masters in painting. He loves playing fetch and prefers the intense heat to slippery sidewalks.

April Danielle Lewis was born in Japan and has lived in Germany, Panama and Maryland. If you ask her where she's from she'd most likely tell you nowhere, but lately she's been starting to say from here. She has a nine-year-old daughter named mecca that occasionally hangs out with the pups and helps her out with walks. They make one fierce dog walking machine! When april's not being dragged all over the city by dogs, you can find her in school at towson, where she is currently earning a degree in art, or in her studio space working like a madwoman. She has been known to entertain herself and the dogs my making up songs about them and singing (terribly) out loud just cuz they seem to love it. John Benoit
He has 2 dogs of his own. Lola and Charlie. And a cat named Murphy. They are very patient as he is often away from his house enjoying the company of your beloved pets.

Lisa Krause
I grew up in Illinois on a farm with all kinds of animals. While we had many kinds of dogs, we raised collies and cocker spaniels. As a child, I helped train and "puppy-tame"!
I moved to Baltimore after getting a BA in Sculpture and Psychology at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. I have been with Walk The Dog since February 2009 and am enjoying exploring the city and the woods, and making new friends -both 2 and 4 legged! I often am seen running around with my poochie buddies in Roland Park where we find interesting treasures on our adventures. I use those things in my artwork. When I'm not with my pups, I'm working in my studio, gardening, traveling, or trying to explain to our cat, Rufus, where I've been all day!
Janine grew up in Baltimore and spent time in New York and Philadelphia before returning to Baltimore for good. Somewhere in there she graduated from Columbia University with a degree in Russian language and literature.

After pining for years and years she finally adopted a dog of her own who she adores and just recently got a kitten too!! Jordana has been walking dogs professionally since August 2009.

When not wrangling leashes and staring at blank pages in Word, he also works as Musical Director for the Parallel Octave, plays drums in the occasional band, and tries to devise scenarios where his landlord would let him own a dog.

Megan is a native Hoosier who has ditched Los Angeles for Baltimore exactly two times. She's happy to be back in the greatest city in America and is convinced that it won't be much longer before she knows every dog in North Baltimore by name. With degrees in English and Art History, she spends most of her free time reading and writing, re-reading and re-writing. She lives with her goofy dog, Scout, and their mutual adoration is sickening. Besides several years of going to college for Art in New York City, Eamon has spent most of his days living in Baltimore. In that time he's had some special canines in the family. Most notably his old friend Merlin, a Husky/Collie mix. Currently the only pet he lives with is a cat, Rufus, who prefers being the sole four-legged creature of the house. When not enjoying the outdoors with dogs, Eamon's interests include drawing, hiking, natural building and playing the baritone ukulele. Someday he would like to get a German Shepherd. And maybe a couple of goats, too. In the meantime he's content hanging out with the many dogs that he's around each day.
