I've been walking with wag full time for a year now; I love and care about the well being of all of the dogs like they were my own. At home I have 2 large Pittbulls who are total sweethearts, so I'm no stranger to interacting with dogs of all sizes (cats too!). I'm a professional ceramic sculptor as far as career goes, and I'm definitely thankful for you all for funding my art and life as well as letting me visit your pups. Thanks so much!

“The dog walker your pup deserves!”

I have been dog sitting and walking dogs for as long as I can remember. I grew up dog sitting for friends and family and often was asked to walk neighbors dogs. I have been Wag Walker for close to a year now and love it! My favorite part is forming relationships with dogs I walk regularly and meeting new dogs. I’ve walked everything from mastiffs to yorkies and am very good with dogs that pull. I am always ready to go if your dog is a fast paced walker but I also enjoy slower walks as well.

The urban city of Bessemer is surrounded by thick woods, creeks, and natural wetlands, and is located only 15 miles from the center of Birmingham. The area has over 1 million residents among the different cities and has become a diverse place for retail, restaurants, and beautiful parks. Thankfully for dog walkers in the area, most of the parks are dog-friendly with access to 7 animal hospitals.

For a lovely outing with your pup, the best place to go is the Watercress Darter National Wildlife Refuge.

Scattered throughout the park is a natural trail system, that connects to an open area, a boardwalk, water fountains, benches, trash bins, and a picnic area. The best part of the park is that dogs are not required to be on a leash, though you will need to bring clean-up bags.

Roosevelt Park is the largest inner-city park, with over 28 acres of open space and recreational fields to play and walk in. There are paved, winding trails that cover the park and connect to the different fields, like the fenced-in baseball diamonds, enclosed tennis courts, and basketball court.
