    “Sometimes life gets crazy, let me help you out!”

    Hi! I’ve been an animal caregiver both professionally and personally for over 30 years. I currently own two cats, two chickens and one very rambunctious hound dog. I have been training all types of critters for many years, so if there are any behaviors you want to train or discourage, please let me know. Training, in my opinion, is human enrichment and I enjoy it as much of our four legged friends.

    “Animal lover”

    Nice to meet you! My primary occupation is mobile detailing. When I’m not at work, my days revolve around pets- whether it’s training at my local shelter, or simply completing a walk, I’m available for any occasion. I have always had cats, or a dog, or even fish, but having two toddlers makes it difficult. I found a happy medium with Wag! I believe this service should be as straightforward and consistent as possible, so the best way to accommodate is if we have direct communication!
