- Our Humans
Hi there! My name is Sarah Downey. I'm a Denver native and I believe there's a direct correlation between exercise, fresh mountain air, and adventure...and having a fuller life, for both dogs and humans. When we "go back to the basics," we are our happiest and healthiest selves.
Before starting APW in 2019, I worked for two start ups...and prior to that, had a five-year career in TV development in Los Angeles. I loved the work, and struggled finding a balance. Who am I kidding, there was no balance! The busier I became, the more challenging it was to hold space for my roots—an active outdoor lifestyle, and a slowing down to take the best care of my mind, body, and a very good Golden Retriever.
My experience owning and working with mix breeds and purebred dogs guides my journey.
My goal is to help people have a better life by giving their dog the best care--one hike at a time. Care that gives unparalleled nourishment that can only be found in the great outdoors. Care that eliminates the phrase, "I should."
I do this work because I love it. Taking care of your favorite thing on the planet, is my thing!
