    Hi, my name Sharon and I live in Gilbert, AZ. I’m excited to be a Wag Walker! I have been around dogs all my life and take care of my friends dogs when needed. I have experience with dog obedience and agility training. I have a dog named Ruby and she will be turning 17 in April. Ruby is always so excited to go on her daily walks. Dogs bring so much happiness and love into our lives, we consider them siblings and of course our family. My goal is to make sure your dog is safe and happy when we are together and on our walk. Please request me when you are looking for a Wag Walker. Thank you!

    Hi, I'm Justine and I would love to walk your dog or take care of your cute kitty! I grew up with doggies. I’ve also been owned by several kitties through out the years. I've dog sat and volunteered at an animal shelter. I currently live a in a small condo with my kitty, Bug. My condo isn't practical for a puppy, so I'm excited at the prospect of walking and caring for your doggie (or kitty) instead! I look forward to meeting your and your doggies or kitties!

    “Making your Wag! experience fun since 2016!”

    I have raised both dogs and cats and volunteered for the Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals. I have been petsitting for many years—all sizes from Chihuahuas to Saint Bernard. Having had several dogs through the years, I recognize that every dog is unique with their own personality, cares and needs. I love meeting new dogs and helping you keep your dog healthy, fit and happy is priority one! Not to mention, all the walking helps me out too!

    Right next to Fort McDowell is Fountain Hills, where you will find the Dog Park at Desert Vista Park. This three-acre off-leash park is the perfect place for your pup to run off some energy, with two fenced areas, one for big dogs and one for the smaller breeds, as well as seating and shade for you. There is water available, but bring Fido’s bowl to drink from. Close by is Fountain Park, with a popular trail circling the lake. There is also the Lake Overlook Trail branching out from here, which winds north through the suburbs and offers spectacular views of the lake, fountain and nearby hills. Keep your pup on a lead while walking these trails, bring your water, and always clean up after your pet.

    If you are looking for a serious walk with your pup, head to the Pemberton Trail in the McDowell Mountain Regional Park in Fountain Hills. The main loop is 15.5 miles, but there are other shorter trails in the area such as Bluff Trail and Granite Trail at around 3.5 miles each, and the slightly shorter Tonto Tank Trail. This is Arizona landscape at its best out here. There are some impressive vistas, but not lot of shade. Make sure you pick your times (not too hot!), dress appropriately and bring plenty of water for both you and your dog. You will need to keep him on a lead throughout the area.

    Branching out west from the McDowell Mountain Regional Park into Scottsdale are two more pup-proof trails to check out. Tom’s Thumb is approximately 4.5 miles, with parking and restrooms available at the trailhead. The Marcus Landslide Trail is just under four miles long and offers an easy walk with incredible views of the Sonoran Valley. Dotted along the way is signage explaining some of the unique geographical formations that resulted from one of Arizona’s largest landslides. There is little shade here and no water available, so come prepared. Your dog must be leashed in this area and always clean up after him.

    Lost Dog Wash Trailhead in Scottsdale is a great place to get out into the fresh Arizona air with your dog. The area offers numerous trails of varying lengths and difficulties, so there is something to suit everyone. The longest is just under five miles and each trail is well signposted. The trailhead has parking, restrooms, and a water fountain, but pack plenty of water to take with you on the trails, as it can get very hot. Your dog will need to stay leashed through here, but will love sniffing his way along the paths and maybe even meeting new friends along the way. Take your clean up bags and any treats or snacks to enjoy along the way.

    Head south of Fort McDowell to Mesa and check out the Quail Run Dog Park in Quail Run Park, where your dog will love the chance to run off-lead in this large grassed area. There are two fenced areas, one for the bigger, bouncier pups and one for the little timid guys. Water troughs and fountains are dotted around the park, and there is plenty of shade and rest areas for you. Doggie waste bags are provided on-site to help keep the place clean and well-maintained. Quail Run Park itself has picnic areas, a playground and toilet facilities, making for a great day out for the whole family.
