“I’ll treat your pets like my own.”
I have been a dog owner my entire life and enjoy the companionship of pets. I have experience with dogs of a variety of breeds, temperaments, ages, energy levels and health conditions. I have also completed a basic dog obedience and behavioral class that included hands on leash training, acknowledging and responding to different dog behaviors, and how to avoid or resolve a conflict between dogs. As a pet owner of special needs dogs, I will strive to provide personalized care to each pet.

“I walk dogs for the fun of it!”
I will be the most excited person to see your dog! I love all animals and living things. When I am out in the community I love seeing a happy dog out on a walk or playing in the yard. I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, for humans, but some of the same reinforcement procedures are effective with dogs as well. I will be patient, kind, and will never reject a doggy kiss.

Hi there, my name is Allie. I am a life coach with a flexible schedule - I love dogs, and spending time outdoors so Wag is a wonderful way to combine both. I grew up with dogs, and my parents are veterinarians so I've spent a lot of time caring for animals throughout my life :) I love meeting & getting to know new four legged friends!

Hi! My name is Serafina Martinez Ridgley. I am currently an undergraduate college student at Reed College, majoring in Theatre-Literature! I am in Santa Fe for the summer. I love pets of all kinds but have an especially soft spot in my heart for dogs. I have experience both dog walking and house-sitting (short and long term). I have a flexible schedule, a love for sunshine, and am excited to care for your dog(s)!
I'm Hunter. I want to bring the level of dedication, punctuality, and compassion to walking dogs that I apply to all aspects of my life. I have always loved spending time with animals, particularly dogs. I have experience walking all different kinds of dogs for neighbors, friends and family. My goal is to meet your dog where they're at and give them the best possible experience. I would love the opportunity to show you the kind of caring and commitment I will bring to working with your dog.

When I walk a dog, I make sure that i am in control. Dogs respond best to confidence. Always having treats (as directed by owner) will keep the dog walking with you. If I notice a possible distraction on our walk I will quickly reroute to keep everybody safe. A walk is about letting off some steam, so I try to keep a pace that will do just that for your dog! Let's get out and smell the roses!
My name is John. I have been a dog owner for 15 years. I have a natural instinctive and intuitive bond with Dogs. I am a Personal Trainer with a Masters Degree in Science and apply many of the skill sets I have acquired with clients to Dogs. Positive reinforcement and good decisions make the dogs experience an exceptional one. Safety is always first. Be the person your dog thinks you are at all times is my motto. I have recently certified for Pet Reiki

“Caring for dogs since 2007!”
Hi! My name is Sarah! I'm from Dallas, TX and grew up with four Dachshunds!! They definitely kept me on my toes. I took care of my neighbor's sweet, big chocolate lab, Keiko, for about 10 years. I live in Santa Fe, NM permanently but currently I live in the Los Angeles for school! I'm looking for a little exercise as well as some quality time with some awesome pups!

With a total population just shy of 143,000, residents and their pups are lucky to have The Santa Fe Humane Society to rely on! This no-kill shelter was opened in 1939 and in 2005 moved to a new building and a whopping 100 acres of land to better serve the animals of Santa Fe.
The SFHS is one of the most paw-gressive shelters in the United States, largely involved in the community by offering sliding scale spay and neuter fees, training classes, and a community dog park that is open to all, making sure all dogs are living up to their pet-tential.
On their 100-acres is a fully equipped veterinary hospital, serving the needs of all dog owners, ensuring all pups get the care they require. This year they have saved the lives of nearly 95% of dogs that were brought to the shelter either by finding them foster homes, adopting them out, or returning them home safely.
The Heart and Soul Animal Sanctuary is located right outside of Santa Fe, situated on a furr-tacular 130 acres of woodland in the Santa Fe National Forest. This animal rescue deserves a big round of appaws for ensuring that all abandoned or injured pups have a safe place to live and healthy food in their bellies for the last 30 years.
Relying totally on volunteer efforts, and community donations, they welcome guests (especially human kiddos) to come and experience the wet noses and muddy paws that have been saved by their efforts.
This dog-centric event is a traveling celebration of dogs and their owners. Guests will get an hour to mingle, enjoy refreshments, and enjoy some surprises before being launched into 90 minutes of short movies.
Hosted by the Santa Fe Humane Society, this annual event takes place in November at the Violet Crown Cinema, and the ticket price of $20 is too good to pass up.
All proceeds will go to the Santa Fe Humane Society spay and neuter program. You’re not allowed to call yourself a movie buff until you’ve watched “Dog Bachelor” with your furry superstar.
The Dog Days of Summer at the Santa Fe Downs is a summer event focused on dogs and their owners, with food, games, and entertainment for tail wagers and rump shakers alike.
Every summer, you can find happy pups and their parents at the Santa Fe Brewing Company’s The Bridge, in downtown Santa Fe. Touted as an event that “defies categorization,” it’s easy to see why locals and tourists alike take part in the festivities every June. Kids and dogs are free, but adult humans will have to purchase their own tickets. All proceeds are donated to Santa Fe Animal Shelter.
The Frank S. Ortiz Dog Park is one of the biggest dog parks in Santa Fe and is the inspiration for The Dog Park Project. This off-leash dog park is a main attraction for dog-toting tourists, located on a massive piece of beautiful New Mexican land. There is no fee and only a few common-sense rules like you must pick up after your pup and no sick puppers allowed.
If you have a feisty pooch that needs to wind down for the evening, taking a walk inside this huge dog park is sure to tire your furry friend out.
Amazing Dogs Santa Fe Dog Training has classes that will make you go mutts! Don’t you wish your dog could sniff out a lost remote or your misplaced keys? Amazing Dogs has a class for that! Did you know you can train your furry BFF in snake avoidance? Really! There is a class for that!
Certified Dog Trainer Connie Dillon holds weekly classes at places such as Alvarado Park and Lucky Dawg Daycare. These classes are held outside, and they will not only increase your doggie’s intelligence and manners, but they will help you form a stronger emotional bond with your furry companion.
This 26-member meetup group may be small, but they are mighty! This public group encourages owners to bring their furry companions on leisurely hikes, taking in nature and enjoying some socialization at the same time! They have meetups throughout the year at specified times. All you have to do is bring water, snacks, and your pup for these easy hikes through the wilderness.
All levels of fitness are welcome, and they plan dog-friendly hikes every few months. Check them out and make sure to pack your boots and your snoots!
