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, ie: making sure each dog has fresh water 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 your home. I would love to walk your Pup!
