    “All you need is love. And a dog.”

    Hi! I’m Misty. My spouse and I have a pack of 3 large dogs of our own. I was raised with dogs and love them so! I also love to be active. I run, bike and hike regularly and walk my own dogs every day. Walking your pups is a perfect combination of two of my great loves! Can’t wait to hang out with your fur babies!

    “The dog walker your pup deserves!”

    I have been dog sitting and walking dogs for as long as I can remember. I grew up dog sitting for friends and family and often was asked to walk neighbors dogs. I have been Wag Walker for close to a year now and love it! My favorite part is forming relationships with dogs I walk regularly and meeting new dogs. I’ve walked everything from mastiffs to yorkies and am very good with dogs that pull. I am always ready to go if your dog is a fast paced walker but I also enjoy slower walks as well.

    My name is Molly and I am an avid dog walker who would love to go on adventures with your pooch! I have owned dogs of all shapes and sizes for as long as I can remember and these babies have been my entire world. I cannot imagine a life where dogs did not exist. I currently own a sweet Husky, a ferocious Chihuahua, and an adorable Manchester Terrior. This bunch are like my children and I hope I can treat you furry family the same way! My goal in life is to befriend all the dogs that come my way!

    “It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them”. Keeping a dog as a pet is a joy and a privilege. I am a happy owner of a Yorki-Poo named Lola. She is the love of my life! As a professional dog walker, pet sitter and front-desk helper at a grooming salon I am fulfilling my life-long dream to work with animals. I love what I do, and I will never work another day of my life!
