I have lived with pets (dogs, cats, fish, and even a hedgehog!) all my life. I worked as a dog walker and pet sitter while completing an internship a few years ago, and it was one of the best jobs I have ever had! Being around dogs makes me happy, and I am excited to spend time walking and caring for your pets!

“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 been a dog owner my whole life owning various breeds including Basset Hounds, Irish Setters, Beagles, Corgis and mixed-breed rescue dogs. I enjoy interacting with all dogs and their different personalities. Dog walking gets myself and your dog out of the house for some exercise, a win-win situation for myself and your pet.

Saint Peters, Missouri, is located about 35 miles northwest of St. Louis. Being in such close proximity to such a large city makes this suburb more prone to homeless animals than other small towns in the state. These homeless animals need to be taken off the streets and cared for. Fortunately, there are a couple of local shelters that will bring these animals in and provide basic care.
The Five Acres Animal Shelter is on a mission to end pet homelessness by promoting responsible pet ownership and advocating for animal welfare. The Five Acres Animal Shelter doesn’t euthanize animals to make room for new ones, and the animals are allowed to stay in the shelter until they find forever homes or pass away. Animals are only euthanized when they can no longer live a high-quality life. As a non-profit organization, the Five Acres Animal Shelter gets it funding only from donations, fundraisers, and adoption fees.
St. Charles Animal Shelter is part of the government of the City of Saint Charles. Since opening its pet adoption center in 1999, the Division of Humane Services has placed more than 35,000 animals in new homes. The Division of Humane Services’ mission is to promote the health, safety, and welfare of both pets and people in the area through education, adoption, and enforcement programs. As part of the government, the St. Charles Animal Shelter is the place where animals brought in by the Division of Humane Services end up, which means that the shelter also tries to find the families of lost animals.

A dog-friendly Easter Egg Hunt is available in St. Louis, thanks to Treats Unleashed! Each April, or March if Easter happens to fall early, Treats Unleashed Ladue hosts a Pet Easter Egg Hunt where dogs are welcome to come search for treats and prizes hidden inside Easter eggs.
Thousands of Easter Eggs will fill the lawn! To claim an egg, all your dog has to do is touch it with its nose. There will also be a golden egg hidden in each area that signifies the Giant Easter Basket prize. This prize is full of toys and treats.
