“Dog lover and friend to all animals!”

Hi, my name is Sam Fiorini! My love for dogs is what sparked me to enter the wonderful world of Wag! Dog Walking. I've done dog walking and dog sitting for my friends for my entire life and I've done volunteer work for a couple of animal shelters. I understand the importance of trusting someone to care for your fur babies. I grew up in a household with just as many babies as there were fur babies. I currently have 2 dogs of my own.

Over the course of a lifetime I have owned myriad dogs - Heinz 57 and purebred. In fact, I can't remember a time when the household was without one or more dogs.I have trained dogs for basic obedience. I have handled dogs in regional and international bench dog shows. But, for the most part, my dogs have just been great friends, companions, and loved family members.Getting out and about with a dog is one of the joys of life... and is good for both the dog and the walker.

“A dog's best friend.”

I'm from the SF Bay Area, now living in Palm Springs. My family always had a dog or two, which I helped raise from puppies. I learned dog walking, sitting & basic training through a job I had in college, from 2008-2013. In 2018, I adopted a Pom/Chi/Mix. We took a Sirius Puppy Training class & gained additional skills for positive reinforcement training & canine enrichment. I've taken online courses through Dunbar Academy to learn more on basic & obedience training, for puppies & adult dogs.

Palm Springs is truly the lap of luxury for local pups and tourists alike.

The 1.6-acre Palm Springs Dog Park is a furrific place for your pet to meet and greet pooches from all over the world.

The park features fire hydrants, dual human and canine water fountains, picnic tables, solar lighting, and benches made from recycled materials. 

In need of some fresh air and scenic views? Leash up and head out for a picturesque desert adventure on the South Lykken Trail. This pathway is over 3.5 miles and boasts unrivaled views of Coachella Valley, Mt. San Jacinto, and Palm Springs. Parking, doggie bags, and trail maps are located at the trailhead near Mesquite Avenue.
