Hi there! My name is Mikey, and I absolutely love animals! As a pet owner myself (1 dog, 4 cats, and 6 chickens to be exact) animals have always played an important role in my life, and they are beings that I care tremendously for. After hearing about Wag! I couldn’t think of a more wonderful activity to do in my free time. Whether your dog enjoys an easy stroll through the neighborhood, or a fast-paced long distance adventure, I am happy to accommodate to any dog walking style and preference.

I am a retired female in my early 60’s who is a regular daily walker. As a Wag! Walker I have done over 200 dog walks. I am RELIABLE & RESPONSIBLE. Numerous owners have designated me as their preferred walker. I always go the extra mile for the dogs in my care. For example, I ALWAYS make sure each dog has a fresh & full water bowl at the end of our walk. And, if it has been rainy & wet, I wipe the dog’s paws before bringing him/her back into the house. I would love to walk your Pup!
