    Hi I'm Jacqueline! I grew up in an animal loving home with many different dogs growing up. To name a few we had Spot, a German shorthair pointer, Bishop a basset hound Boston terrier mix, and Dopey a Basset Hound. In addition to my experience with my own dogs, I have also dog sat and walked neighbors dogs, and family and friends dogs as well! I have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages! I love meeting new dogs and they always click with me right away, because I am welcoming and patient. I treat every dog as my own, and shower them with lots of love and attention. I will be sure to make your Wag! Experience as favorable as possible!

    “It’s all about the dogs!”

    Hello! My name is Joel and I have owned and cared for dogs of many breeds. I'm 37 and currently own a little Westie, a Black Lab, and a Doberman. Except for my former Golden Retriever and purebred English Mastiff, all of my animals have been rescued. I also had a Border Collie, a Pug, Great Pyrenees and more. All Paws on deck! If your pup would like to up the pace with a slow jog just let me know and I can accommodate!

    Hello, my name is Brittany. Pets have always played a huge role in my life and I find cultivating special bonds with animals to be so important. Growing up, we had a variety of animals in our house, including cats, dogs, fish, birds, and a hamster! I've had two Yorkie Terriers, a Great Pyrenees, Boxer, and a Pug; I love them all, big or small. I enjoy being outside, especially for long walks or runs. Thank you for this opportunity, and I can't wait to meet your special friend!

    Hi there! My name is Abbey and I love dogs! When I was 7 I got my first dog and have had a family dog ever since. I have always helped with walking, feeding, and playing with our dogs. I currently walk my cousins dog quite often, as well as dog sit while they are out of town. I also have experience taking dogs for walks for family friends that need the help. I love being around dogs and getting them the exercise they need in the great outdoors!

    Hello and Bark, Bark!! My name is Cassidy and I'm so eager to meet you and your amazing dog! I've been pet sitting, caring for, and owning dogs for the past 12 years and I'm excited to keep deepening that relationship with the owners and the doggies. My goal for the walks will be to get exercise, have fun and play, and let the dogs sniff the world around them. I hope to be meeting and walking with you soon!

    My name is Anya and I'm looking for a few new furry friends! I used to be a labor and delivery nurse, but now am a stay at home mom of 3 wonderful kids. I grew up on a farm and have been around animals all my life. Our sweet dog Corky passed on in December and I am really missing our walks. I would be honored to care for your dog!
