Meet The Team

Christopher Hayes

Chief Executive Walker

Chris has pretty much been walking dogs since he learned to walk himself. After graduating from music school, he got his first full-time job with a dog walking service in Boston. Later he was trained and worked as a veterinary assistant/ technician at Pieper-Olson Animal Health Clinic in Connecticut. After moving to New Orleans he began dog walking and pet sitting again, booking through Wag and Rover.

Before long Chris could see that there was a significant demand for the kind of dependable, quality pet care that only a locally managed service could provide, and in December 2018 he founded Christopher Walkin’ Dog Walking & Pet Sitting to do just that.
