    Hi! I'm so excited to be your Wag! walker! I have raised quite a few dogs as personal pets and they have all ended up very well behaved. Unfortunately, in my current living situation, I am not allowed to have pets. Being able to interact with some amazing animals and their owners is why I joined with Wag!. I am ready to walk and care for any dog no matter the size, breed, or personality. I love a challenge, so if your dog needs some extra attention or likes to play rough, I'm your guy. Thank you!

    “Let’s enjoy a walk in the city !”

    My love for dogs has been growing ever since my first puppy! My goal is to give your dog(s) the opportunity to adventure around town and be pampered as much as possible. I have had dogs since I was the age of 5 and I fell in love with having them and taking on the responsibility of taking care of them. I have training with proper walking and grooming and have used this training for not only my dogs but other friend’s, family’s, and neighbor’s dogs as well. I look forward to meeting your dog!

It was very nice to see how much she loved my dog and cared about making him happy during her time with him. She gave a really nice report at the end and even spent more time with him then requested.
