Hello! My name is Mimi and I am a big time animal lover. I have had dogs my whole life. I grew up with an Aussie a big chow mix and a border collie. I have had two pitbuls as well. My fur babies now are a big shepherd puppy and a little Aussie mix. I suppose it’s safe to say that I have quite a bit of experience with different pups and their personalities. I know how much your pet means to you. Mine are literally my children so you can expect me to treat them with the same patience, love, and kindness I show my own pups. I also have experience using Wag walkers for my own dogs so I know how much a quality walker means.I am a patient, fit, 23 year old. Hanging out with animals of all kinds brings a smile to my face that Usually does not fade for the rest of the day.I love walking and jogging. I love forward to meeting your pup soon!I

My experience with dogs includes: working in dog boarding facilities, pet sitting both in my home and client homes, dog walking, running an animal rescue as a founder and being a dog owner myself! I have had the joy of working with so many different breeds, sizes, temperaments/personalities.

Hi, my name is Jenna and I graduated last year from UC Berkeley. I used to live on a farm where I have raised and cared for dogs, cats, chickens, horses, and goats. I bred goats for 9 years and I spent the past 4 years training service dogs for PTSD. I miss being meeting all different kinds of dogs and would love to be around them more to give them love, care, and exercise!

Having grown up on a farm, dogs have always been the greatest companion. Currently I travel the world for a living as a flight attendant and safety and care is my number one core value. Taking care of your pets would bring me so much joy while I am home and I would be honored to treat them to a safe and fun walk!
Hi! My name is Michelle! My love for animals started at a very young age. Your pet would be treated as if he/she would be my own. My parents had a Boxer and Labrador when I lived with them. I’ve volunteered at a shelter for a while when I was younger. I have a sweet, 8 year old Bengal.
Hi! My name is Reyna. I’m in love with dogs! They’ve always been my favorite animal ever since I was a kid. Around 9 years ago, I started pet-sitting and walking my family’s and friends dogs. I do it any chance I get now. I am married and get to be a “stay-at-home dog mom” to my 2 beautiful babies Charlie and Nala. I look forward to meeting yours!

Redding, California is a welcoming hub for people and pups alike. The city uses its many resources to make sure that dogs and their owners can experience the best parts of the city. It’s no surprise that people and their four-legged comrades come from around the country to take part in the many activities that Redding has to offer.
Not to mention, the city is busy at work within their local shelters to help all kinds of hounds find their forever homes. In operation since 1952, Haven Humane Society has made it their mission to end animal homelessness and abuse. Their adoption process ensures that all animals get the very best home possible and they tirelessly host a variety of events to raise money and awareness. In previous years they have been able to expand their efforts to include a spay and neuter clinic and the Morgan Adoption Center. You never know, your next fur baby may be hanging out in one of the 72 dog kennels in the center!
Tails of Rescue is a transport service that helps a variety of animals get out of unfortunate circumstances. They go where other groups can’t. They are dedicated to helping the sick, abused, and damaged pups find the love and care that they need to become the perfect pet. They also take in dogs from kill shelters that have run out of time. Young, old, healthy, or sick—there isn’t a pooch too broken for this group to help.
Groups like this are the reason that Redding is an absolutely wag-tastic place for you and your furry friend! It’s a culture of caring that you and your pup are sure to love!
Bring your pup to Sun Dial Bridge at Turtle Bay Exploration Park during March to walk/run the trail for a good cause! You may purchase a racing t-shirt on the registration page found on the Haven Humane Society website. Registration has already started, so head over and get your slot now! Late registration is also available. In-person registration is also available on race day. Check-in is at 8 AM and the fun starts at 9:15.
Looking for the perfect place to stretch your pup's legs? You've got to check out the convenient Blue Gravel Mine Trail. It's an open area that many dog-lovers go to let their furry friend run and sniff about without any concern. The 1.75-mile asphalt trail is the perfect little getaway for you and your beloved pooch.
Bring out the wine connoisseur in your dog at the Mosley Family Cellars! This totally dog-friendly location is the perfect way to enjoy some wine while your best pal lounges on the cool floor of the tasting room or takes a stroll in the yard. There are dog treats for sale, but rest-assured - every four-legged guest gets a free, homemade dog treat that they can enjoy with Xara, the resident winery pup!
Looking for something to do outside of the city? Head over to nearby Grass Valley to give your dog the chance to find their inner wild dog (in a safely fenced 1.7-acre area of course!). You'll love that your pup can sniff and roam until his heart is content. Have a shy dog? No problem! There's a smaller area for smaller/shy dogs so they can enjoy the freedom, too! It's sure to be a paw-mazing time!
Mark your calendar for May! Bring your pooch to have a good time and compete in the WestMuttster dog show for some incredible prizes!
