“You can't put a price on peace of mind!”

I have been walking and sitting pets in the Dayton area for about two years, and I have never had a major incident! I think what makes me a good walker is my level of patience and my calm demeanor. I maintain the position of pack leader, while still having fun. I have had experience with dogs of all sizes and ages, and even other furry/scaley friends! There's no pet I can't handle. I understand that not everyone has the time or ability to walk their dog every day, so I'm here to help!

Hi! My name is Taylor and I grew up in Dayton, OH with 3 dogs. 2 of them were miniature pinchers and 1 was a beagle. Now I am 25 and I still live in Dayton and I now have a corgi named Eleanor and a beagle named Oliver. I have always been the go-to dog sitter when it comes to friends or family going out of town.

Hi, I'm Jesse. I've been around animals since I was a baby. I chose Wag! as an opportunity to walk & care for dogs. My current apartments do not allow me to have furry pets, so, I am excited for a chance to fill my time with yours.

“Your pup is your baby! Let me take good care!”

My name is Bria, my friends would refer to me as the Animal Enthusiast. From a young age, I have always been drawn to nature, insects, and of course, animals! Growing up, I was fortunate enough to experience camping, pet store shadowing, and volunteer work at local animal shelters. In college I rescued my wonderful Rottie named Roxie, who has shown me just what it means to be man's best friend! I cannot wait to meet your babies, and I hope we will develop lasting friendships on our fun walks!

Dog Boarding in Dayton

LUV4K9s mission is this - "To help every dog in our rescue find a safe and loving forever home".  This 501(c)(3) runs entirely on donations and sponsorships; donations are tax-deductible.  This group of dedicated, animal loving volunteers have over 40 years of combined experience in pet rescue and animal welfare.  They got their start by saving dogs from puppy mills and puppy auctions, homeless dogs, unwanted, abused, starving and branded "not adoptable" dogs to give them a safe, loving environment to be rehabilitated, be nurtured and spoiled.  

Many of the pets they initially took in had never even been touched by another human being nor treated like anything more than property.  Until all puppy mills cease to exist and there are abusive, uncaring "humans" out there that do nothing but harm them, LUV4K9s will be their advocates.  Every dog deserves a loving, forever home; every dog that is unloved, unwanted, abused or worse needs a voice.  We can all help put an end to this by becoming advocates for the humane treatment of all creatures and to tell our elected officials that all acts of abuse and neglect against animals receive harsher punishments that a slap on the wrist. 

If you are looking to adopt a new best friend, your adoption fee will cover spaying/neutering, shots, deworming, microchipping, heartworm testing and monthly preventatives.  LUV4K9S is always looking for dedicated and loving volunteers and fosters to care for their adoptable pets until they find their FUREVER homes!  If you are in the area and are looking to volunteer for a good cause, LUV4K9s would be happy to see you!
