Joustin CordaryRunning with Rover was founded by Pet Expert and Dog Trainer Joustin Cordary. Being the proud owner of a high-energy Labrador, Joustin found it difficult to find a dogwalking company that really fulfilled the needs of his dog and had the client communication he preferred. He wanted to know his dog was in a trusting environment while he was away working long hours as a Marketing Manager. He envisioned a company that allowed dogs to run, play, be cared for and loved while learning at the same time. Since he could not find one, he abandoned his day job and created one…Welcome to Running with Rover!
