“More than a walk - Extra Photos & Play/spoil time”

My volunteer time in vet clinics, providing many years off care to my, family & friends’ fur babies, has me well equipped to provide the level of care your bark & purr family members deserve. During my years with Wag, I’ve strived to make sure dogs get attention &/or play time before & after their walks. When doing boardings, sittings & walks, there will be plenty of photo updates, detailed reports of care and grooming/training (as needed/requested). Your baby’ll surely get lots of love from me!

“Video updates & detailed report cards every walk!”

Hi, I’m Danielle and I’m a dog lover! When my english bulldog Lexi needed physical therapy due to old age, I did everything I could to keep her healthy during the last few months of her life. After her passing I realized that I absolutely love taking care of dogs, and had to find a way to pursue that. Now I've been a dog walker and pet sitter for the past 5 years, and want to give your dog the happiness I've given to so many others! Can't wait to meet and take care of your pup!

Hi, my name is Justine. I am a certified dog trainer since early 2013. For 2.5 years I worked at a boarding, training and daycare facility. I've worked with all types of breeds and sizes, from teacup chihuahuas to 150lb great danes. I love all dogs and their multitudes of personalities; they're super fun to watch and play with. At work, I was the one who worked most strongly and connected with dogs who suffered from anxieties, but I love being around all dogs, regardless. I own two dogs, a pitbull mix and a coonhound/lab mix. They are both abuse rescues. I'd love to meet your dog and spend time with them! Daily exercise is very important, and a tired dog is a happy dog.

Dog Boarding in Charlotte

If you believe that every dog deserves to find happiness and a loving home, you’ll find plenty of friends in Charlotte! This North Carolina city features a long list of dog-friendly attractions, as well as plenty of committed, hard-working animal rescue organizations.

Carolina P.A.W.S. is one of those groups. A non-profit organization staffed by volunteers, Carolina P.A.W.S. helps abandoned and abused dogs and cats throughout the Greater Charlotte area find happiness in loving homes. High-risk animals are rescued, given the medical attention they need, physically and emotionally rehabilitated, and then looked after by loving foster carers until permanent homes can be found.

Dog Days of Charlotte also has its paws on the pulse when it comes to the needs of the city’s dogs. This non-profit rescues dogs from high-kill shelters around North Carolina’s Piedmont Region, helping them find foster homes and hopefully loving forever homes. Donations, volunteers and foster carers are always welcome.

North Meck Animal Rescue is another excellent Charlotte-based rescue group. This non-profit, no-kill animal rescue is on a mission to put an end to pet abandonment, abuse, and neglect. The animals it rescues are cared for in loving foster homes and then adopted out to forever families. North Meck Animal Rescue also offers educational resources to help new owners better care for their pets, and is always on the lookout for more volunteers.
