Julie Triplett

I am the founder and owner of Playful Paws and Columbus Dog Walker. I have graduated with a degree in Marketing and have previous experience within the marketing field but always knew that my passion was working with animals. I started volunteering with A.D.O.P.T. Pet Rescue helping at events, raising money for homeless animals and fostering dogs until they found the perfect home. Being a dog and animal owner my whole life I know how hard it is to schedule your day around your pet, this is why in 2005 I started Playful Paws and Columbus Dog Walker so I could offer my affordable services to you.

As an animal lover my whole life joining the Playful Paws' team was an easy decision to make. I have a background in customer service and spent many years in the restaurant industry but always knew helping and working with animal was my dream. I am a very patient person and prefer working with puppies, seniors and special need animals. Although I am the newest member to the Playful Paws team I am excited to be fulfilling my passion of working with animals on a daily basis. I am looking forward to building a relationship with you and your animals!


Billy Besaw

From an early age I have had an affinity for the living world. Being raised on a farm I was surrounded by animals and my love for dogs was amplified by the fact my grandmother raised many different breeds. I have a strong ability to work and connect with them. "You'll never find another living creature more interested in you"! I joined Playful Paws' team in 2012 and continue to expand my knowledge and love for animals.
