    Hi, my name is Kate Mayer. I recently retired from the engineering world and returned to my main love: working with animals. I have a degree in Animal Science from UC Davis and have a veterinary work experience background. I appreciate all breeds of dogs. I love walking and caring for them, and have yet to meet a dog that didn't end up loving me too.

    “I’ll love and care for your pups like family.”

    Hi, I’m Lucia, an Italian American from San Jose! Over the years I have had opportunities to care for and walk a variety of dog breeds ranging from Standard Poodle and Pit Bull to Yorkie and French Bulldog. I love being active by hiking so I will make sure your dog is satisfied each and every walk.

    Hi, I'm Gillian. I grew up in England in a household full of pets, including Cindy the Welsh corgi & Rover the old sheep dog. Years later, we have Priya, a rescued beagle-mix. I began dog walking 8 years ago in Florida, with dogs of all sizes and ages from dachshunds and poodles to bulldogs and Huskies!

    Hello! During my nannying experience I have become a designated pet caretaker as well. I am also a current pet owner of two loving cats, Nyla and Nalo. In addition to caring for children I grew up caring for dogs and cats all of my life, while growing up with four Rottweiler’s, three pit bulls and my childhood cats that have crossed the rainbow bridge. I used to be a python snake and salamander owner as well. My animals are my babies and I will treat yours as if they were my own!

    “Give every puppo a hug and a squeeze”

    After over 600 walks for canine clients, I've gained much confidence and experience to care for all kinds of puppos. Today I am a proud momma to a German Shepherd mix I adopted, and we're so happy together. Dogs are wonderful creatures. I often feel like we don't deserve such loyalty and undying affection. For all they do for us, I like to give back and remind them how much they are loved and appreciated.

    “Let’s have a puptastic day!”

    Hi! I’m Nicole, since I was a young I've been surrounded by animals. From our own dogs & cats to the animals I raised while in 4-H. I’ve learned that every animal is different down to their personalities & habits. I've been pet sitting & walking dogs for the last 6 years through Wag & for friends and family. I’ve now worked with many breeds and different sized dogs, giving each the equal love, appreciation & dedication I do my own. I would love to share that commitment with your fur loves.

    “Will Walk 4 Treats”

    3 years with Wag, and I couldn't be happier. I've had the opportunity to make great connections, care for and spend time with the best dogs, and get my own very much needed excersice. My relationship with clients, and K9's alike, are very important, I work constantly to improve on them daily. I think I've done well as a pet caregiver because I enjoy it. Hopefully I can do that for you.

    “Fear Free Certified Pet Professional”

    Hi and welcome to WAG! I love dogs and making them happy by getting them out for some exercise and fun. I am Fear Free Certified Pet professional. I am also a dog owner and was a shelter volunteer where I took workshops about how to handle dogs including fearful, adolescents and puppies. I use positive reinforcement, and have taken a dog cognition and behavior course. I bring my neutered male border collie on walks with me. He’s dog friendly and I’ve never had a problem on a walk with him along.

    “I can handle the doggos who pull!”

    I am a dog lover who knows that the walk is more about the dog than the walker. It is the dog's chance to get out and refresh in a way we humans often take for granted. As a Wag! caregiver I am able to cater to your pet's needs easily as I am an animal enthusiest, and a dog and cat owner most of my life. For me, any time spent with animals is time spent best! I am an experienced Wag! caregiver and am available on request. Thanks for choosing Wag! Wag! Caregiver Alex.
