Meet Janet — a Buffalo, New York Dog Walker Spotlight Story



With dozens of well-kept dog parks and breathtaking natural attractions, Buffalo, NY is a "grrreat" place for pups and people to live. The city is a hub of international trade and commerce, which means the locals hustle hard. (And they play hard, too — unlike many cities in the US, Buffalo's nightclubs don't close until 4 AM!)

While the pet parents of Buffalo work and play, who's taking care of their loyal pups? Dedicated Pet Caregivers like Janet, a Buffalo, NY dog walker who’s been walking dogs on the Wag! platform since 2019. In her time on the Wag! platform, Janet has completed more than 1,700 pet care services, and her overall rating is a "pawfect" 5 out of 5 stars. 

Here's a series of fun questions we asked Janet to get to know her better.

Buffalo dog walker Janet has done more than 1,570 dog walks and reviews earning her a 5.0 star rating - book a walk with one of Wag!'s top dog walkers in New York!

Hardest part about sitting dogs?

Janet: The hardest part about sitting dogs is saying goodbye!

How do you prepare for your dog sitting services?

If you could give any advice to a brand new Pet Caregiver, what would it be?

Janet: My advice to a brand new Pet Caregiver is to always communicate with the parent. Safety and happiness are so important for your client and asking questions or sharing concerns with the Pet Parent is extremely beneficial to creating a wonderful experience!

Janet: I am from Buffalo, NY but also lived for many years in Boston, MA.

What’s your story?
