Wissahickon Walkers was founded by Scott M. Lewis in 2008. Scott has a BA in English from Temple University and has been responsible for the care of his own cats and dogs since childhood.

Scott has been informally pet sitting and hiking in the Wissahickon Valley with his dogs for the past fifteen years. He worked for three years as a horse-drawn carriage driver and tour guide in Old City Philadelphia, where he learned a great deal about the care and training of horses.
