About Charlotte Dog Runner

I began running 13 years ago when I got a chocolate lab puppy, Annie Girl.  Wow!  I had no idea how much energy she had and how quickly she could get into trouble!  It didn’t take long to realize that a few walks a day were not enough to exhaust her energy and save my sanity.  That is when we began running.  After our run, Annie Girl was sweet, calm and cuddly!  She still had energy to play with her toys, but was not engaging in destructive behaviors, like chewing on shoes and furniture.  Annie Girl is now running with the angels but her paw prints will forever be right beside mine.

During my career as an employee benefit specialist, I educated individuals on the impact their lifestyle choices have on themselves and those around them.  I consistently heard, “I don’t have the time”.  That’s why I started Charlotte Dog Runner LLC.  I want to give individuals time.  Time to take care of themselves.  More quality time with family and friends.  That is the first step toward a healthy and happy life for both dogs and their owners.  And, I just plain love dogs and running!
