    Hi there, I’m the son of a professional dog trainer who owns a dog school/hotel in Switzerland. I grew up with multiple dogs and when my dad opened up his dog business I was around more than 10 dogs every day. Before I went to College I was always helping out my dad’s doggy business so I walked, trained, fed and groomed almost every dog breed there is. Right now, I don’t have an 8-5 schedule which allows me to walk/exercise your dogs during the day. Because of many years of experience with all kinds of dogs I know how to read their body language and know what to do in uncomfortable situations and of course I’m a huge dog lover! I really enjoy going on walks and spending time with pooches. I can't wait to meet your furry loved one. Thank you so much for your consideration. :)

    Hi I’m Carolyn. I was raised on a farm which started my love for animals at a young age. In middle school I joined the 4H club and began raising animals on my own. I knew I wanted to work in the animal care field. I volunteered at many animal shelters and then went on the become an animal shelter Director. I have experience in many fields of animal care. I have experience in caring for many different breeds. I have had many companion animals of my own over the years. I currently have 2 chihuahua mixes, namely, Patrizio and Pika. I love them dearly and I will love yours the same. I know how important our pets are to us. My furrbabies are spoiled and I would love to spoil yours too.

    Hello, my name is Desi! I am a San Diego native and have owned dogs, cats, birds, fish and hooved animals my entire life :) I own a large property and board pups for friends whenever I can. Every pup has their own personality...which makes getting to know them so much fun. I am a walker, hiker and runner. Your pup fur baby will be in great hands and treated as my own.

    “Caring for your dog will always be my main focus;)”

    A bit about me. I am currently working part time as a delivery driver. Prefer mornings but can be flexible with advance notice to care for your pet. I am an animal lover and would not want nothing less to care for my own fur babies. Been a loving dog owner to Chihuahua Terriers for 15 years and counting. I work well with animals and you will get to see that in me. I truly appreciate your feedback and want nothing better than to make this a nice experience for you and your pet.

    Hello! I'm Brian and I love dogs! I grew up on a small farm in Virginia where I had 6 dogs, 4 cats, horses, birds, fish, etc. I began helping my neighbors with their furry friends at 7 and kept going. We have fostered a number of dogs and found all of them homes until a few years ago when we adopted our puppy, Danube. That doesn't mean we stopped helping animals, though! We have volunteered with a number of adoption agencies and helped victims of wild fires by offering whatever we can for them and their furry friends. Let me know how I can help!

    “Fastest hand in the west with a doggy bag ;)”

    Hey, my name is Eli and I’ve been walking dogs with Wag! For about 4 years. I’m great with big dogs or dogs high in energy that need a little more exercise than others or even smaller/older dogs who need a more chill walk. Don’t mind putting food or water out for them if you let me know where it is. Hope to see you and your furry friend soon!

    Grab Fido and head to the Sunset Trail in Alpine which is only eleven miles out of Descanso. This beautiful trail is 3.2-miles long with an out and back route type. The trail is great for beginner hikers, or anyone just looking for a leisure day, since the trail is easy to hike and has plenty of shade while you walk it. While hiking, you will pass through some pawsome meadows and be surrounded by pine trees. You will come across a lake known as the Water-of-the-Woods while hiking, which is a perfect spot for you and your pup to stop and relax before heading home.

    Wrights Field is a 230-acre grassland that is perfect to take Fido for a day of exploring and running around off leash. The field is open with tons of grass, and features plenty of unmarked trails for you and Fido to explore. You can feel safe here with your pup since no vehicles are allowed to travel on it, and Fido can safety walk around with you off-leash. Wright's Field is relatively unknown except to locals, so you both can have a quiet hike with not too many people or dogs bothering you while you explore. Make sure to bring plenty of water for you pup since there are no trees for shade and no running water in the field.

The trail is a simple 1.75-miles through the Cleveland National Forest, and will give you a stunning view of the mountains that surround the area. The hike will be steep, around 3000-feet in elevation, so make sure to take it slow and easy for your pup.
