Hey there! I’m 20 years old, a Military wife, and born and raised in the PG county area. I’ve had a love for dogs as long as I can remember. I grew up with a Golden Retriever, and watching my family/friends dogs when they would go away on vacation. I worked at a dog facility and a veterinarian hospital for a year before getting married and moving to FL, I currently have two dogs. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry companion! Thank you so much for trusting me to take care of them!

Hi I’m Chasati! Let me give your dog some fresh air and burn some of that energy off. My “day job” is a Registered Nurse. With working 12 hour shifts, I am free a lot. I have my own fur baby daughter, who is 4. She is an energetic German short-haired pointer named Molly. Trust me, if I can handle her energy I can handle your dog!! My friends and family trust me with their dogs when they are out of town or on vacation, so you can trust me for a little Wag! time.

Hi! My name is Angie and I am currently a nursing student. I love pets especially dogs and would be happy to help anyone that has a busy day by taking care of their pet! If your dog needs to just be checked on and given some love or taken on a walk, I am here to help!
Caring for furry children has always been a passion. I care about their needs and enjoy every second of it! I believe that a dog sitter and walker is a great way to make your dog feel at home when you are not. It's more than a sitter, it's a friend who is there for them. I have experience at a dog daycare and boarding facility for over a year now. Whether you have a senior, puppy or high energy child, I would be more than happy to ensure they are having fun or just comfortable at home! I am Dog & Cat CPR/First Aid trained, Insulin & other meds trained, feeding, bathing, and nail clipping are all part of my experience. Please feel free to reach out, I am excited to meet you and your furry child.
From a very young age I grew up with a beautiful cocker spaniel and was always dog sitting and playing with my family. I am always dog sitting for friends and family. Dog deserve the best exercise so long walks are the best! I currently volunteer at an animal shelter every Saturday as well.

Nestled in the Florida panhandle, Fort Walton Beach is a small, ocean-side city packed with charm, soft sand, and beautiful views! Though it's not the top of any of the pet-friendliest lists in the nation yet, there's plenty of pup-friendly activities, doggo events, and lots of outdoor fun that make this city a goldmine for pups and their paw-rents.
The largest animal shelter in the area, the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society - also known as PAWS - offers hundreds of services for pups and their future paw-rents. Established in 1957 as a different society, PAWS gradually evolved into what it is today, a private, non-profit organization that handles more than 7,000 every single year. They feature a vet clinic, in its 17th year, that has sterilized over 48,000 animals during its time.
Overall, this shelter is dedicated to the welfare of animals, protecting them from cruelty, finding as many of them fur-ever homes as possible, and fostering homeless pets.
Another popular rescue in the area is Ruff Dog Rescue. This organization is a 501 (c)3 rescue that recognizes itself as a no-kill shelter. Its sole purpose is to stop unnecessary euthanasia by educating the public on spaying, neutering, and caring for animals correctly. Because of the size of the organization, they typically rely on fosters for their rescued animals. Open since 2004, they've helped countless animals find fur-ever homes in the FWB area.
The biggest, fluffiest, most pawesome event of the year in Fort Walton Beach is back - Dog Daze! Bring your pooch to the most barked-about festival in an area full of canine festivities for you and your pooch. The event will feature games and contests for the pups, wiener dog races, dog-centered vendors, and even fun exhibitions by the Soccer Collies and the Pensacola Furricanes! It's a day-long event in the Liza Jackson Park where you can shop, eat, meet other pups, run around agility courses and bond with your pooch. The event is free, but donations of $3+ per pup are requested. All proceeds go toward pup causes in the area. All pups over 6 months (with their shots and such) are welcome to attend the event!
Ho, ho, ho - Christmas is quickly coming, are you and your pup paw-pared? Luckily, PAWS (Panhandle Animal Welfare Shelter) has got you covered with their annual Home for the Pawlidays event. Not only does this event function as an enormous adoption party (you may be going home with a new pup), it's also a fun, Fido-friendly event that features raffles, doggo vendors, food, fun, and even pet pictures with Santa! From 11-2, you and your canine companion can snap a few photos with the big guy in red. Even better? If your pooch is a PAWS alumni, your photos are free! If not, no sweat, they recommend a $3 donation for your photo opp. Don't miss this opportunity to get your pooch prepared for the holidays!
Join Fort Walton Beach citizens for a different kind of pup-benefit event - the annual Paws on the Throttle! Put on by the PAWS shelter, this annual event features bikers, bulldogs and more for a run/drive that benefits homeless pups in the area. For $15, you can bring your pooch to watch bikers galore throttle their hogs all for a good cause! The run will feature the central event, but also an after party with lots of prizes, drawings, live music, and fellow pooches enjoying the Florida weather. All proceeds will benefit the PAWS organization and homeless pups in your area.
This pup-friendly city wouldn't be complete without a few parks dedicated to the pooches. The most pawpular park in the area is Central Bark. This pup park is fenced-in, off-leash, and gives you and your pooch plenty of space to play. Set up with water fountains, plush grass, and plenty of play equipment, this pup park provides a space for both the active pooches and the lazier doggos to enjoy the outdoors. You can even arrange to host private events for your pooch - like a birthday party, perhaps - in one half of the dog park. Another pawpular choice is the Liza Jackson Dog Park. Not only is this a fenced-in, size-separated, off-leash park that you and your pooch can enjoy every day of the year, it's also the site of the annual Dog Daze event every October!
This pup-run store (okay, okay, a human runs it, too) is the perfect pup boutique for you and your pooch. It features funky treats and toys, eco-friendly products, and even birthday cakes for your pup! This isn't just a spot to find products for your pooch, it's a total pup-centric experience. Bring along Fido to help pick out his favorite treats, and even sample a few of the delicious pup-friendly baked goods! While you're in, let your pooch enjoy a meet-n-sniff with the doggo-owners of the store, Sabre, Tate, and Zara, the chief security, eating, and joking officers, respectively.
