Hello! My name is Disney. I have a Boston Terrier named Kash and a Pitlab named Smoke. I began working with pets when I worked for Ry the Pet Guy in Redwood City back in 2010. I previously owned and operated a pet sitting business in Alaska called Dutch Tails LLC. I looked after many dogs, many of which I took on gorgeous hikes through the tundra. I currently work for Dogtopia, a dog daycare and boarding facility in Santa Ana. I am very excited to look after your furry loved one!

Hi my name is Kevin, I'm 31, and I LOVE dogs! I used to own a French bulldog named Cera, and since she passed away, I'm not quite ready to own a new one, but I love that Wag gives me an opportunity to still spend time with dogs all while providing such a priceless service to their owners! I have turned into the 'dog walker' in my group of friends as of late. I've been walking a French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix named Bogie, a Golden Retriever/Shepherd mix named Hauss, and a King Charles Cavalier named Kingston most recently. I work from home running my own dialogue facilitation/process design business so I've got a mostly flexible schedule to meet with your pooch!
