Andy Gale

photo for andyAndy Gale works in the rapidly expanding Petworth neighborhood, where he, his partner and two children reside. He hails, just across the river, from Arlington, VA and began dog walking in Mt. Pleasant when he moved to the District in 2002. In the years between then and now, Andy has also worked for DC indie music label Dischord Records as well as at the historic Glen Echo National Park.

When not seen on the streets walking dogs, you may find him either playing drums in local rock bands or playing with his children. Walking dogs for Brighter Days definitely whet his appetite for taking in a pup of his own, and his family adopted a dog, Opie, from a local animal rescue.
