Hi I'm Emily and my life revolves around dogs! I've had and cared for dogs all my life big and small. Growing up I was the neighborhood dog walker and watcher while families were away at work or on vacation. I have loads of experience with dogs ranging from 12 week-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniels to 175lb German Shepard/Golden Retriever mixes. I also have experience with dog with various special needs such as anxiety and OCD disorders. Right now I'm in college pursuing an animal science degree on the path to vet school. I'm planning to spend the rest of my life meeting and helping animals!
I'm an physically active 36 yr old without children. I love animals and the outdoors. I have been rescuing and re homing dogs and cats since I was a child. I currently have a 1yr old one eyed tabby queen named Kiki whom is my dearest companion. I am relocating to Houston and it's exciting to find a service that can allow me to make some extra money on the side while getting my pupper fix and exercise. My new lease won't allow me my own dog so I think this could be a happy arrangement for me.
I am a college student living in Omaha this summer. I have always been a big dog lover. As a teenager, I walked and/or dog-sat for several of my neighbors - both large and small dogs. I enjoy interacting with all types of animals, but I would certainly consider myself a dog person.
“I love working with pups of any temperament!”
I have lived my whole life with dogs and love spending time with them! I have a bachelors degree in animal behavior and years of experience training service dogs as well as basic obedience training. I’ve worked at the humane society caring for and walking dogs of all backgrounds. I worked at Dogtopia daycare for a year taking care of all kinds of pups. I am comfortable working with dogs of all ages, sizes, and temperaments. I really look forward to meeting and walking your pups!

“Walking your best friend is an honor!”
I am currently going to school to become a veterinary technician. I have had a lot of experience with dogs! My parents own a professional dog training company. I was raised with a lot of dogs and currently own 2! I also worked at a doggy daycare/boarding/grooming facility for 3 years and couldn’t imagine not working with dogs!

(Bow wow ruff Courtney) That’s dog for Hello I’m Courtney or at least that’s what my dog told me. I’m the proud dog mom of a 4 year old beagle named Prince. I have been surrounded by dogs all my life, whether by raising them as a kid or volunteering with since my teen years. Seeing dogs happy and smiling makes my day.

I'm Caitlin. I grew up in Council Bluffs, Iowa. I've had dogs all my life. After college I worked at vet clinic for just over 5 years and loved working with the boarders and daycare dogs. I have a Shih-Tzu/Dachshund mix and when I was younger we had a Husky and a Sheltie so all sizes and all breeds are fine by me.
Hi! My name is Evelyn. I am a recent college graduate living in Lincoln. I currently have a 9 year old Pomeranian mix. I joined Wag last summer when I was interning in DC and I would like to start again here. I can go for walks, house/dog sit, or check in a few times a day if needed. Let me know if you have any specials requests and I can work to accomodate to you and your pet(s) needs
Hello! My name is Greta. I'm studying Social Science and Interactive Media at New York University Shanghai. Currently, I'm studying away at the New York Campus. I grew up with dogs and sitting and walking all of my extended families' and neighbors' dogs. Since I have begun college I have missed daily dog interaction dearly! Thus, now that I'm back in the U.S. I'm super excited to get back to dog caretaking!
A renowned dog lover, Abraham Lincoln once said: “I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.”
With this in mind, it’s perhaps appropriate that the city which shares his name is home to a tight-knit community of dog lovers who are always ready to stand up for the rights of animals.
Capital Humane Society is a perfect example. Founded in 1902 as the Lancaster County Humane Society, the group shelters unwanted pets, promotes animal welfare, and educates the wider community about responsible pet care. If you’re looking to give an unwanted pooch a second chance at life, you’ll find a host of adorable adoptables at the society’s Pieloch Pet Adoption Center at 6500 S. 70th Street.
R.u.F.F. Rescue is another Lincoln animal welfare advocate. The R.u.F.F. acronym stands for “Reaching oUt to Furever Friends”, and this inspiring non-profit aims to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome small dogs in the American heartland. It also provides education about responsible dog ownership to the community, helping more dogs stay in their homes and reducing pet homelessness.
Good Dog Rescue of Nebraska also serves Lincoln’s canine population. A non-profit group, Good Dog Rescue has a mission to save dogs of any breed and offer them a fresh start in a loving home. If you want to adopt a dog, or even provide a temporary foster home for an animal that’s fallen on hard times, this wonderful organization will welcome your support.
Looking for an excuse to get some exercise and work up a sweat with your pet? Lincoln Track Club’s Holiday Run could be just what the doctor ordered. Held in early December, this Fido- and fitness-friendly event features a 5K run and a kids’ 1-mile course. The races start and finish at the Pioneers Park, with all participants encouraged to bring their dog along for the run. Every participant in the Holiday Run gets a special Holiday gift and all dogs get a treat, but the best part is that all proceeds from the event benefit Capital Humane Society.
Once a year, Capital Humane Society throws a huge paw-ty for people and their pets. This celebration is known as the Tails ‘N Trails Pet Walk & Festival, and it offers a huge variety of dog-friendly entertainment for the entire family! Held at the Fallbrook Town Center, the event kicks off with a half-mile or full-mile walk, which sees dogs and their owners enjoying a relaxed, social stroll. The walk is followed by a furr-ociously good festival featuring live music, food trucks, heaps of vendors, face painting, and more! Your dog can indulge herself on the pupcake walk, go bobbing for hot dogs, enter the cutest costume contest, or even try her luck in the man vs dog peanut butter licking contest. The event raises tens of thousands of dollars for Capital Humane Society each year, so check it out and join in the fun.
Fresh air, good company, delicious wines, and some quality time with your dog — sounds pretty great, huh? If you agree, you’ll want to get along to Deer Springs Winery this June for the annual Wine & Howl fundraising event. Run in support of Lincoln Animal Ambassadors, this tail-waggingly good day out lets you enjoy wine tasting, scrumptious food, live music, and vendor exhibits, all while raising money for a good cause. An $8 suggested donation is all it costs, so bring your dog, a blanket, and some lawn chairs and treat yourself!
A concert event for the whole family, Dog Stock supports Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue and a number of other grrr-eat local rescue groups! Held at Country Pines in September, Dog Stock features a host of live bands as well as activities, games, and a whole lot of fun. Furry friends are more than welcome to attend, or if you’re looking for a new pet, you’ll love the red carpet walk for adoptable animals. There’s a whole afternoon of entertainment on offer, so get set to shake your tail for a good cause.
Looking for a fun day out with the whole family (including your dog)? You’ll find exactly what you want at Lincoln’s annual Dog Bowl, held at the Pinewood Bowl Theater in Pioneers Park. With your furry friend at your feet, you can enjoy live music, craft beer, food trucks, and heaps of vendors. There’s also a stack of canine competitions held throughout the day, with highlights including a doggy talent show and a dog/owner look-alike contest! Proceeds from the event benefit Lincoln’s public dog runs.
