Nashville Gets It's First Certified Dog Walker with New Local Business Pawsitive Dog Walking & Pet Sitting

Starting June 1, Nashville's first dog*tec Certified Dog Walker (CDW) Tasha Erickson will start walking Nashville pooches, filling a much needed void for professional, competent and trained dog walkers in the Nashville area. Tasha is the owner of Pawsitive Dog Walking & Pet Sitting, which she started in 2014 in Fresno, California. “We moved to Nashville because we wanted a change,” says Tasha. “Nashville hit all our priorities on paper, but when my husband visited to check it out in person, that's when he knew for sure we would be happy here.”

Why do dogs sniff?

Dogs ‘see’ the world through their nose much like we humans ‘see’ the world through our eyes. No, not literally, but think of it this way- blindness (minus the danger roads present) wouldn’t present much of a handicap at all to today’s domesticated dog; they could continue to live out their lives in the perfect happiness they always have! Take away a dog’s sense of smell, however, and you’ve crippled him far worse than blindness would cripple a person.
