    Hello ~ I'm Dawn. I feel privileged to make myself available to you, and your pet. What a great service and convenience to provide busy owners with the peace of mind that their pet's needs are being met! I have felt the nagging guilt of not being able to "make that happen," due to work conflicts, fatigue, etc. I'm a responsible, mature and physically strong individual with both background with multiple "walks" of animals, and the common sense understanding which that breeds, AND an innate, irrepressible love for, and response to these creatures who are in our care. I spent hours as a kid reading "dog dictionaries," interested in each breed. Personally, I've lived with Labs, Goldens, Blue Heelers, Pit Bulls, Spaniels, Pekingese, Pugs, Shi-Poos, Huskies, Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, an Akita...and more. As with little children, I have a natural love for animals and get down on their level and engage demonstratively (dog-permitting and respectful of the pet's temperament and comfort zone.

    “your dog's 2nd favorite human”

    As a dog groomer and the owner of two dogs and two cats myself, I know the value that animals have in our lives. They're our favorite cuddle bugs, our emotional support, our excuse to go outside and enjoy some fresh air, and sometimes the only reason we get up in the morning. I have loved caring for animals through Wag for three years, and I cannot wait to get to know your pets!

    “Nobody loves dogs (& cats) more than I do”

    Hi, I'm Lola. I've had pets all my life and can't imagine a life without one. My first was a Cocker Spaniel named Duffy and he was part of my family before I was born. For my 7th birthday, I got Pinky. She was with me until I left for college at 21 (I'm a late bloomer) I've had many more since then. At one point I had 6 dogs & a cat. All rescues. All fabulous. They were my comfort and salvation when my husband passed away. I have two darling Shih Tzu's - Zoltan & Nala & 2 cats, Yoda & Bob

    “Passionate about animal care!”

    I'm an avid pet enthusiast. I have owned everything from dogs to lizards and have kept both dogs and cats my entire life. I have worked in animal shelters photographing pets that were up for adoption and in pet stores helping new pet owners pick out all the things they need and preparing them for their new family member. I currently have one dog (Kelly) and one cat (Teagin).

    “They're good dogs Brent”

    I've been taking care of dogs my entire life, and in that time only one dog has never warmed up to me, however she still bites members of her own family from time to time. I promise to take fantastic care of your dog and make sure they get a good walk in. I should have no problems walking large dogs as I've managed to always maintain control over a sweet but wildly energetic pit bull that I take care of. I look forward to walking your dog!

    Erin is amazing. This was my first time going on vaca and leaving my dog. I didn t want to take her to an actual boarding place cuz it just reminds me of a doggy jail or something. So I came across this app as I was looking for a sitter. Well needless to say I ve never felt more comfortable and greatly satisfied with Erin. I most definitely would recommend her to anybody needing anything about any type of dog help. Lol. This app,meeting Erin,everything.....A++++++
