    My name is Ryan and I am a professional guitar instructor, but I also happen to love dogs! I currently have a pet Papillon named Brando but I do have experience with larger dogs including my previous German Shepherd. I am so excited to hang out with all the fluffy pals that I will meet through Wag!

    My name is Kimberly and I have had dogs in my life from day one. I am the proud mother of 3 pups at this time and I love walking and taking care of all pups. I have been walking and sitting for a couple of years with a local pet care company. I would love to care for your precious baby.

    “I love and treat your pet(s) like my own!”

    My name is Tarah, I was raised with a dog and volunteered an entire summer at an animal shelter when I was 11 years old. I have worked in animal clinics in the kennel area cross trained as a vet tech and worked in doggie daycares feeding, medicating, playing, bathing and sitting dogs. I have had 3 of my own in the past and miss them dearly! I enjoy being outdoors and the company of a furry friend while exploring. If I am delayed in getting to your fur baby for their walk I stay out a bit longer.

    “Will care for your pup as if it’s my own:)”

    I’ll take your pups on long walk/runs and give them lots of lovin’! I have 2 Australian Shepherds back home that are sisters & helped take care of them for the past 14yrs they’ve been around. With them being older now, I do have some good experience with taking care of senior pups & would be more than happy to help out with them in any way possible! Have a job and go to school but still have a lot of free time and would love to care for some pups! I’ll make sure your dog receives the best care:)

    “Who's a good dog!?”

    My dogs are my whole world. I own 2 brothers and I have hardly ever been away from them and they are going to be 12 in December. When other dogs stay with me, I treat them as if they were my own kids. All dogs who stay here get filtered water from the dog dispenser that I bought just for the dog bowl. I go on many walks per day with each of them. I work with them if they need extra time learning commands. I feel that they take good pieces of information out of all of those experiences every day.

    Hi, I'm Laura. I can't remember a time in my life when I didn't have a dog. Currently, I have 3 rescue furbabies and they are the light of my life. I have been dog walking and pet sitting since high school. I am pet first aid and CPR certified. I would love the opportunity to care for your furbaby.

    My name is Monica, and I've been an avid dog-lover my entire life! I have experience taking care of dogs in my family, from taking them on walks to dog-sitting them over weekends. I have a dog named Tonks. She is a German Shepherd puppy and she is my and my boyfriend’s fur baby! We love to go on walks around the neighborhood and play fetch. I always look forward to getting to know new dogs, and I hope to meet yours!
