“Strong, compassionate walker”
My name is Sarah. I'm a young professional with a profound love of dogs. I've been dog sitting for friends, coworkers, and people in the St Louis area for about 3 years now, and I volunteer at a local animal shelter as a dog walker. I’ve met some truly amazing dogs during that time and I look forward to meeting yours.

Hi, I'm Jim. I grew up with dogs and have always enjoyed their company. I understand that my clients consider their pets as family. Each dog has it's own personality and I love spending time with them. I could also use the exercise. I've volunteered at animal shelters and haven't met a doggo I didn't like.

“A walk is always better with a fur baby or 2 or 3.”
I have always had a dog in my life. I love taking the 2 I have for walks but I also like to get extra walking time in for my own exercise and it is always more fun to have a fur baby with you on the adventure.

“Less like dog whisperer, more like genuine spirit!”
I was the sole caretaker with my huge Golden Retriever, Oliver, walking him every day, working on training, and even wrangling him in the bathtub! Now that I have my own thriving doggy business since Jan 2019, my besties and I are never bored again! Days I'm available, I'd absolutely cherish time with yours! I feel so blessed that dogs of all breeds and sizes feel immediately comfortable in my presence, and out of the 500+ walks I've taken for Wag, only 1 time was I unable to gain a pup's trust!

“Fur babies are the best!!”
I love animals and have always been around them. I grew up with dogs, cats, snakes, horses and small pets. I currently have a spoiled 7 year old pitbull named Rio that I have raised from a puppy and I also have a 1 year old Rottweiler named Loki. Dogs are a true best friend.

I have always loved animals. I do not have a favorite pet. I actually found the love of animals from bringing in strays as a child and going through various training for Veterinary Ass/Tech positions. I really can't wait to provide an essential need for your pet. I have my own critters so I understand how important their care is to an owner/ pet parent.

Chesterfield is located about 25 miles west of St. Louis. This suburb has its fair share of homeless animals that need a second chance at finding a new, forever family.
Since 1870, the Humane Society of Missouri has been helping provide second chances to homeless animals looking for new homes. This organization is working toward ending animal abuse and pet overpopulation. To end animal cruelty, the group investigates cases and educates the public on how to responsibly care for animals. The Humane Society of Missouri also runs spay and neuter programs to help prevent more stray animals from being abandoned or abused. With four different adoption locations, including one for large animals such as horses, this shelter is able to help hundreds of animals each year.
Stray Rescue of St. Louis has been helping stray animals in the area since 1998. This organization is the largest no-kill organization in St. Louis area. Part of the group’s outreach includes teaching the public about compassionate care for pets. At Stray Rescue of St. Louis, no animal is euthanized because of its past. The group’s mission is to eradicate homelessness for animals in the area, and Stray Rescue of St. Louis is always looking for a new way to combat this problem. Stray Rescue of St. Louis believes that all animals deserve a second chance at finding a family and living a great life, which is why the group is so dedicated to finding new homes for each animal in the shelter.

Easter should be a fun time for the whole family, and with the Treats Unleashed Pet Easter Egg Hunt, it can be! Each April, or March when Easter comes early, Treats Unleashed Ladue in St. Louis hosts an Easter egg hunt for our four-legged friends.
During the hunt, dogs will search for eggs filled with treats and prizes on the lawn. The rules state that if your dog’s nose touches the egg, it belongs to them. One golden egg will also be hidden in each area. Golden eggs are redeemable for an Easter basket filled with all kinds of goodies your dog will love!
The Easter Bunny will also be around for photos with the dogs.
Costumes are encouraged. Admission is $5 per pet.
