    “I love all dogs no matter size, drool, or energy!!”

    Hi! I have been surrounded by dogs my whole life! I used to walk and take care of my parents dog, Otis, many times before he passed. Now I walk and watch my sister’s 2 year old golden retriever, and 1 year old english retriever and my other sisters pit bull mix and lab mix! They all range in energy and size but are no match for my dog walking skills! I love meeting new dogs and helping them burn energy as it helps me burn energy too!

    Hey, I’m Caelin! When I’m not walking your dog, you can find me taking classes to get into vet school at Jacksonville University, or working as a vet tech. Clearly I have a passion for animals! I love and can handle all types of dogs too! During walks, I’ll make sure your pup is my number one priority and love them as if they were mine! :)

    My name is Jenna. I work as a nurse in the navy here in San Diego. I have volunteered with the SPCA in Virginia, dog sit for friends, and have two of my very own dogs. I have worked with a number of trainers for my dogs and try to implement their training in walks with my dogs. I would love to do the same for your pup if you would like!

    Hi there! My name is Fredia, I am currently a student. I will be working with Wag to provide your loved ones with the best walking experiences imaginable! Throughout my life I have always had dogs in one form or another. I was always the girl fostering or helping reshelter homeless puppies. Currently I have two Rottweilers: Lucy is super sweet and wise, and Caesar is my handsome big headed boy who just wants to have fun. I am so excited to go on this journey with you!

    My name is Victoria, and I am a lifelong animal lover. I’ve grown up with dogs, and have been pet sitting for the past 6 years. I also have one year of experience volunteering at a shelter. Ive worked with Dachshunds, Terriers, Labs, Huskies, Shepherds and more! I’m comfortable with pups of all shapes and sizes. I understand how important your pup is to you, so I treat them like they’re one of my own. And I always try to bring them home tired.
