Skip the kennel
Sittings take place at your home and boardings take place at your pet caregiver's home.
All pet caregivers offer pick-up and drop-off for boarding services.
Your pet caregiver will send photos and videos throughout the service in addition to a thorough report card.
Wag! is the nation's fastest-growing network of pre-screened and insured pet sitters and dog walkers. In less than 15 minutes you can book a nearby dog sitter, daycare provider, or dog walker, who'll take complete care of your loved one - at their place or yours.
My experience with dogs started as a child. In seventh grade, my best friend’s mom owned a dog kennel, where I volunteered throughout middle and HS. The kennel eventually switched ownership, so I got a job at a doggy daycare, but when the kennel reopened I was hired. During my time at the new facility I played many roles; trainer, groomer, manager, and everything in between. For five years I also pet sat a highly trained German Shepherd guard dog who belonged to a prominent Israeli family.

“I believe pets are family and treat them as such.”
I have walked dogs and have worked with Wag for a little over 3 years now. I have done boarding and sitting. I can give meds. I have took a pet CPR and first aid class. If you need boarding for your dog/s and if they need to be the only dog/s. Just let me know and my dogs can stay at my parents house. I look forward to caring for your furbabies. Thank you.

When traveling to Franklin, TN, you will quickly realize that this is one of the most dog-friendly places around! In this fur-tastic city, you will find the Williamson County Animal Center, located at 106 Claude Yates Drive. This organization does not call themselves a humane society, but they are classified as an animal control, animal care and animal adoption center. They pride themselves on the basis that they never turn away any animal, no matter what type or age.
This center considers itself a no-kill establishment because of its successful save rate, which was 96% in 2016. The only way they will ever euthanize an animal is if it has severe behavioral issues or medical problems. On top of taking care of each animal that comes through their door, they also have a great relationship with the community. On the last Saturday of each month, this center has a Rabies and Microchip Clinic that is open to the public to help vaccinate their animals.
The Williamson County Animal Center has numerous animals up for adoption and you can go to their website to check out what animals are available. They have all their adoption fees online as well for your convenience. This facility is a county tax-funded agency that is 5,000 sq.ft. and has numerous different areas inside for the animals and staff to work with. Not only do they have a large indoor area, they also have a large outdoor spot that includes trails, a dog park, and a running area for exercise. Be sure to check out this wonderful establishment while visiting Franklin!
If your pup is looking for somewhere to run around, look no further than Freedom Run Dog Park. Located at 2098 Turning Wheel Lane, this one-acre park is open year round for you and your pup's enjoyment. The park is divided into two different sections, one for small dogs and one for the larger canine friends. This dog park follows the "enter at your own risk" policy and is open to any dogs with up to date vaccinations and current dog licenses. When coming to this park, make sure to bring your puppy pal their own water!

While out and about, do you often end up stopping to shop at a few stores? But what do you do when you have your favorite furry buddy with you? It can be a little difficult to find a store willing to accommodate you and your pup. Luckily, It's Vintage Baby, a lovely boutique for children, is completely pup-friendly! This quaint store sells many different items for children and infants. Located at 234 Public Square, this boutique proves that puppers are perfectly fine being inside of a shop, as long as they are on a leash of course!
Franklin is so committed to their pooches, they even have an entire program dedicated to making the town more pup-friendly! Pets Welcome launched in 2017 and brings together over 80 businesses that are welcoming those with paws into their establishments. To kick off all of this mutt-love, Pets Welcome throws a two-day party to celebrate all things canine! The jam is held in the city's Downtown and features a chance for you to get your pet's portrait, free giveaways and even some 'Yappy Hour' drinks! For those wanting to give back to the community, go for a stroll with your four-legged fur buddy to raise money for the poor puppers that don't yet have homes! All in all, its a bark-tastic event.
