“I can’t wait to meet your dog!”

Hi, I'm Nicole! I grew up in a household with at least one dog, and at times, up to five. My dad likes to joke that I was 'raised by dogs.' I miss having my own, and I always jump at the opportunity to walk or dog sit for my friends and family. I like to lead an active lifestyle and meeting new dogs is one of my favorite activities. I look forward to meeting yours!

To say I love dogs would be an understatement. -Happy dogs feed my soul! My whole life has revolved around animals, and how I could better their lives. I absolutely adore dogs, and have always been fortunate to have been surrounded by them throughout my entire life, not only on a personal level, but on a professional level as well. Over the years I've spent time volunteering at local animal shelters, pet sitting for friends and family, working at a dog bakery, participating in animal care fundraisers, and eventually developing a career in Animal Welfare, where I have over 5 years experience working as a Veterinary Assistant/Technician, inclusive of employment at a Veterinary Hospital that specialized in low stress tactics for the animals. In the field, I have always treated every dog with the love, care and patience that I would want another to give to my own fur-baby, and in using the Wag! app I will hold the same standard, along with the goal of a fun and happy experience and walk for each dog, every walk!

I grew up with labrador retrievers, and now have my very own yellow lab named Lily! Dogs bring me a lot of joy and happiness and I get so much joy from caring for dogs.

I have years of experience walking and dog-sitting - small dogs, big dogs, medium dogs, cuddly dogs...I absolutely love them all. I have a very flexible work schedule.

“Animal lover extraordinaire!”

Hi! I'm Tracy. I've been around animals all my life. I was blessed with 2 awesome dogs as best friends from age 6. When we moved to Alaska, my father became interested in dog sledding and we had 40 dogs! It was a lot of work, but well worth it. I enjoyed spending time with and learning to care for and train the dogs. I love all animals and I'm a dedicated supporter of wildlife preservation, animal rescue and ending animal homelessness and cruelty. I look forward to meeting your furbaby(ies)!

Dog Boarding in Sonoma

While Sonoma, California, is a small city in comparison to many other cities in the state, it still struggles with some of the same issues that larger cities face. One of these problems is homeless animals. In an effort to provide better care for stray pets, there are two great shelters in the area: The Sonoma Humane Society and the Sonoma County Animal Shelter.

The Sonoma Humane Society opened in 1931. Since its opening, it has help find homes for thousands of animals in the Sonoma area. Staff at the shelter provide the animals at the facility with food, water, medical care, and love. The shelter also provides training services, which often helps the pets find new homes. As a no-kill shelter, no healthy animals are ever euthanized at the Sonoma Humane Society. There are two locations in Sonoma County.

The Sonoma County Animal Shelter works with Animal Control to keep homeless pets off the streets and in a facility that provides them with basic care. As part of the government, the shelter helps investigate and prosecute cases of animal abuse, neglect, and cruelty. The shelter also spays and neuters all of the pets that come into their care to prevent more unwanted animals turning up at the door. As a limited admission shelter, the facility doesn’t take in more animals than it can care for to prevent euthanizations.

If you live in Sonoma or the surrounding area and you are looking for a furry friend to bring into your home, consider visiting one of these animal shelters.
