I started walking & caring for our dogs, and others, when I was around 8 years old, and have loved doing so at every opportunity since! I'm a very athletic person who goes to the gym & trail running at least 4 days per week so, I'd love the opportunity to keep your dog healthy & fit as well!

Hello, I'm Stephen! I've been an avid dog lover since the moment I was born. Since then I've been sitting, boarding, and walking all the dogs that my friends have. I have experience from Australian Shepherds to little Rat Terriers, and adore all dogs of all shapes and sizes. It's been exciting getting to know all the different personalities these little guys can bring. I believe in having fun with puppers, but also demonstrating discipline with much love. It'd be a terrific pleasure to walk your dog and get to know another great thing that's a part of this world, thanks!

Hi, I'm Cathy and I've been an SF resident for the past 11 years. I grew up with a cocker spaniel named Mickey and have had a deep love for dogs ever since. My apartment building prohibits pets so I visit the nearby dog park or babysit my brother's adorable dachshunds whenever I visit So Cal to get my much needed doggy therapy. With Wag!, it's a wonderful opportunity for me to not only meet new dogs and enjoy their companionship a few times a week but also help dog owners keep their pets healthy, fit and happy. I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes and personalities and understand how important outdoor exposure and walks are for their well-being. I will treat your dog with love & care, and will do my best to ensure you have a positive experience with Wag!
