Meet our fantastic dog walking team!


Hello, my name is Emma and I'm from St. Louis, Lets go Cards and Blues! Currently I attend Rockhurst University and am studying for my masters degree in Occupational Therapy. I enjoy good times with friends and family and exploring KC. Being outside and around dogs brightens my day so I love taking walks with my dog, Louie. I have really enjoyed walking dogs for Newman's Dog Training and getting a chance to meet all the new dogs in the process.


Merrie moved, with her husband Alan, to Kansas City from Washington DC to be near family and to open the Tail aggin’ PetStop, a pet-supply store in the Crossroads Arts District. It was through Tail Waggin’ that Merrie met Jena and eventually joined her team of walkers. Merrie loves the opportunity to bond with each dog she walks; her many interactions with dogs confirm her belief that a dog is as unique as a person. She also loves the chance to explore the fascinating neighborhoods of KC. Please check out their store, visit www.TailWagginPetStop.com 


Nice to meet you! My name is Cory and I've been with Newman Dog Training and Walking for about a year and half now. I'm originally from St. Louis. I'm a transplant to Kansas City for college but I think I'll be sticking around for a while longer, after getting to explore this city. You still won't see sporting anything other than St. Louis Blues and Cardinals gear. I bleed blue and wear red! 

I've been around dogs and cats all my life. I currently have to dogs back at home in St. Louis. Emmitt (bulldog) and Palmer (schnauzer/poodle mix). Emmitt I got as a puppy. He is now an 80 pound wrecking ball! Palmer was rescued and has been in his forever home for 2 years now. They became best friends and they are the best part of going back home. Thank you for looking into Newman Dog Training and Walking! Hopefully I'll be seeing you in the future! 


Dog walker/crazy dog lady Alex originally hails from Pensacola, Florida, and now calls Kansas City home. With an undergraduate degree in marketing and an MBA, you'd think she'd be some executive at a big corporation. Instead, she's chosen to be an entrepreneur (with a budding marketing company), marathoner, and plans to walk dogs as a side gig forever. Some people call her a crazy dog lady, but she prefers the term "wannabe dog whisperer." It's certainly safe to say she is a dog lover and if she gets a chance she will treat your pup like family!


Hey there! My name is Rachel. I’m originally from a small town in southwest Kansas but I’ve been loving Kansas City! I enjoy all animals but dogs just so happen to be my favorite. I’m currently taking classes to become a veterinary assistant. When I’m not studying or out walking dogs, I’m typically taking my own two dogs, Remington and Maya Mae, on adventures!

Hi, I'm Jena


I love the joy animals can bring into your life. There is nothing better than coming home to a wagging tail.
