"Joanna was great. Bentley is a foster so he's quite a handful because he hasn't had much formal training and she was very patient with him on the leash"

Hello, my name is Alexander Klein, and I LOVE ANIMALS! I have had animals- mainly dogs- for my entire life, and I love and respect them. I am a college graduate with a Bachelor's of Science in Information Technology concentrating on Security. I am working at Wag! not because it is my field of training but because it is my passion- although that is not to say that I am not knowledgeable about dogs and other animals. The first dog I got to call my very own brother was given to me after my parent's dogs passed away. That dog, named Knight, was my absolute best friend and brother, and I cared for him for 15 years- his entire life.
Hi! My name is Joanna and I grew up with a Pomeranian ... yes this is how I introduce myself... and not just in my walking profile... Misiu (Mee-Shoo) was with our family from the time I was a baby to the time I got my Masters degree in Microbiology! In the meantime I also had the chance to take care of the neighbors' dogs... a German Shepherd, Beagle, and Golden retriever and work in an animal shelter with all breeds of dogs. I have 5+ years experience boarding, sitting, and walking/running but most importantly I know what its like to have a loving dog in the family.
