Hello! My name is Hailey and I am a second-year student at CSU Monterey Bay. Currently, I am studying to become an elementary school teacher, but I am also interested in journalism, and have even considered becoming a veterinarian. I have always been an animal lover and am great with dogs of varying sizes, temperaments, and ages. I have a ten-year-old golden retriever named Nala at home, so I have grown up around dogs and because of that definitely consider myself to be a "dog person." I also have experience working with animals of more difficult temperaments and have much compassion and patience when it comes to working with animals. I am flexible with scheduling and am willing to do recurring walks with your dog if that is what works best for you. I have my own transportation and am very reliable; you can count on me to get your dog out and walking!

Hello fellow tail-WAGgers. If you are looking to find a trusted friend for your dog who will reciprocate that love that they give you when you can’t be there, I'm right here! My name is Jackie and I learned how to run on four legs before I learned to walk on two. I’ll be your dog’s best friend(other than you, of course). Your dog is in good hands with me—or should I saw paws?

“Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting my profile.”

At 12 years of age, I started a dog walking business in my neighborhood. This is what really exposed me to dogs of all sorts of shapes and sizes. Later on in life, I knew that animals had a special place in my heart so I’ve dedicated my time to learn more about caring for them. I am currently a vet assistant majoring in Animal Science at Cal Poly. I’ve worked in dog hotels, wildlife centers & animal shelters. I love what I do and I am dedicated in being the best dog walker/sitter for your pet.

"The world would be a better place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog." My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. I don`t have a doggy right now as I am investing my time and resources towards my career but I am happy that Wag gives me an opportunity to share love and care with dogs whenever I have a free time.

“I’ll treat your pups as though they’re my own!”

Hi! I'm Tara, and I attend school at Cal Poly studying sociology and minoring in music. I have a 12 year old Beagle named Ollie at home in OC and I love taking him on walks as well as spending time with him outdoors. Unfortunately, I don’t have a pup in town with me here, so wag is perfect for me. I am an experienced dog walker and I do well with all kinds of dogs. I have a house with a yard for your pup to run around in if you need a sitter, and my roommates are all dog lovers, too!
