A Little About Us

Sierra Dog Ventures

Sierra Dog Ventures is a dog walking and adventure camp for dogs operating in the Mammoth Lakes area. We specialize in group/pack walks but also offer individual walks for those who need it. Because we know you have busy schedules, we will pick up and drop off your dog from your home or office! Please check out our services page for more detailed information! We cannot wait to meet and adventure with your pup/s! 

Christi Contois - Owner and Pack Leader

My two biggest passions in life are the mountains and dogs. I have dreamed of living in the Sierra my entire life and I've finally made that dream my reality! I have spent the last year working as the  Chief Operations Officer for a dog walking company and as a Pack Leader walking up to 8 dogs at a time. I have decided to combine my two greatest loves with a business of my own. My hope is to help the community by caring for their dogs and showing them fun and adventure when the owners aren't able.   

Duncan Constable - COO and Pack Leader

Duncan has spent his last few years leading packs in Southern California but decided the mountains were calling! Growing up with dogs and being surrounded by them daily has made him a true pack leader. He has the largest heart for dogs AND the mountains so Sierra Dog Ventures was a natural fit. We are so happy to have his expertise and caring spirit on our team!

Katie Smith - Pack Leader

Katie comes to us with tons of experience with dogs and has a common dog sense that rivals few others. She has fostered more dogs than we can count and has 5 of her own! Each of her dogs is a different size and personality making her well versed in any and all situations. We are so happy to have her spirit and love for dogs on our team! 

Dana Andersen - Pack Leader

Dana is the perfect fit for our team for many reasons. 1) He is the most active human we know so his pack always gets a great workout! 2) He is obsessed with his constantly growing pack of dogs; 2 cattle dogs and a golden retriever. 3) He is always smiling and ready for fun... the perfect formula for our adventure days! 

Tim Homan - Pack Leader

Ask Tim about the love of his life and he'll tell you all about Addie, his chocolate lab. Tim's heart for dogs is one of the biggest we've seen. We are so lucky to have his charisma, energy, positivity and reliability on our team. 

Johnny - The Real Boss

Johnny is a 4 year old mutt and the absolute love of my life! He also goes by Johnson, Jonathon (when he's in trouble!) and Poodle. There is nothing that makes him happier than mountain adventures. His smile was the inspiration for the move and motivation to start spending my days entirely with dogs! We hope to make as many dogs smile as humanly possible through our work! 

Oso - Trusty Sidekick

Oso is a 2 year old Rottweiler/German Shepherd Mix and pretty much the best guy around. He is the biggest puppy, most gentle spirit and friend to all. Seriously... he wants to be everyone's best friend! His floppy ears and giant smile brighten all of our days. We are so happy to be on this adventure with him!
