    Hi there, I'm Alysse! I grew up south of Boston with a Golden Retriever named Jace. I started dog walking and sitting when I was 10 years old. I have experience with all ages, ranging from 6 weeks to 13 years, which were all different sized breeds. I know how important it is to provide regular exercise for your furry companion, especially being a dog mom myself! I would love the opportunity to keep your dog happy and healthy by providing my care! I will also make sure that your Wag experience is a positive one!

    I am a recent Tufts University graduate and I will be back Tacoma for the summer. I am incredibly excited about being around more furry creatures during my time here. At home, I have a 9 year old vizsla named Beau who loves long beach walks and outdoor adventures. I can’t wait to walk many more friendly dog in the area.

    Hi, I'm Charlie! I am from Minneapolis and grew up with dogs galore. Hoover (St. Bernard), Hazel (yellow lab), and Milo (yellow lab) kept me busy before I came to college out here in Denver. I was responsible for watching these three whenever my parents were not around, and since our neighbors saw us as a dog friendly household, I would occasionally pick up a neighborhood dog or two to watch. I have experience taking care of dogs both small and large. Hoover was a 110 lbs St. Bernard, and we got both Milo and Hazel as 2 month old puppies.Since coming out to Denver, I have missed my three pups at home, so I have dog sat on occasion out here as well.Lastly, I am a big runner so I would be more than happy to take your furry friend on runs with me!

    Hello! My name is Megan and I am a full-time speech therapist. I am currently looking for additional job opportunities over the summer, and I thought that dog walking is a great way to serve people and their pet! I grew up with a Daisy dog (small dog) and have had experience taking care and walking family friends' dogs (medium to large dogs). I look forward to walking your furry friend!

    My name is Charlotte and I am 21 years old. I am a senior at TCU in Fort Worth Texas, and I am a Nursing major. I am from Orange County, California and I have always loved dogs and have grown up having a dog in the home since I can remember. Currently, I have a dog back home named Poppy, a three-year-old Australian Shepherd who I take for walks already, so I would love to help other dogs get out and go walking.

    I grew up with a golden retriever named Katie who was the most loving dog in the world. She showed me how much we can all learn from dogs. I genuinely care about dogs and making sure they receive the love and attention they deserve. I recently moved to Oakland for a job at a nonprofit, and I miss my dogs back in Texas so much. I have endless experience with dogs from walking, grooming, bathing, feeding, and adoring my own that I grew up with to dog sitting for friends and neighbors on multiple occasions. I always respect an owner's wishes in regards to how they like their dogs to be taken care of while they are away.

    I have experience working with animals in all different environments including dog walking, pet sitting, veterinarian assistant, fostering dogs, selling animal supples, etc. I promise to give love and attention to every animal I am able to meet here and build a bond with. Being a dog owner myself has taught me so much so I know exactly how important a family pet is to everyone else.

    Arbaney Park is one of the most pupular parks in Basalt. Not only does it feature a playground, pavilion, and barbecue pits, it’s jam packed with history. An old barn belonging to the Arbaney family sits on park grounds. Also, your pup may notice some large beehive looking structures. They are actually Charcoal Kilns constructed by Aspen Silver Company in 1884. When your pooch is finished learning about these fascinating kilns, continue your education by following the Basalt Historical Walking Tour. You’ll pass local landmarks like Frying Pan Inn/ Midland Hotel, an old mercantile store, and the original wooden one lane bridge across the Frying Pan River. By the time you’re finished, your dog will be a Basalt expert!

    If your pooch loves hitting the trails, then they’ll love this neighborhood. The High School Trail is located right behind, you guessed it, the local high school. Labeled as intermediate, this trail is steep in places. It ends up at a ridge on Light Hill with pawsome views your pal will love. Arbaney Kittle Trail is also nearby. Locals love this trail, which means it has the tendency to get crowded.  The trail runs 3.5 miles and increases 2,000 feet in elevation before the first stopping point. Depending on your pup’s ability, continue on or enjoy a nice break and turn back. Bring plenty of water for both you and your furry hiking buddy.

    One of the things pups love about Basalt is the network of trails in town. The Rio Grande Trail stretches 42 miles between Glenwood Springs and Aspen. Since the Basalt section is about midway through, you and your pup can head north or south on this puptastic paved trail. Cyclists often use this trail, so be sure to keep your doggo on leash. The Downtown Basalt-Willits Trail connects east and west Basalt. The 3.8 mile trail combines paved pathways with established sidewalks, and in places runs alongside the Roaring Fork River. This is a great option if you want to see both sides of town, and if your pup is in the mood for a long walk.

    The Crown Mountain Park is just minutes from Basalt in the neighboring town of El Jebel. This massive park will make your pup bark with joy. While dogs may not enter the playground areas, they are allowed to romp and roam around the expansive lawn. Your furry BFF can also trot along the mile long paved pathway that circles the park. The best part about this place is the off leash area. Your pal can ditch the leash and run free in one of the two enclosed areas. They’ll meet new four legged friends while getting all tuckered out. Pet parents can hang out on one of the benches. Don’t be surprised if your pup falls asleep on the way home!

Bring a ball or your pal’s favorite Frisbee and let them run themselves ragged. Since this is a pupular hang out for the local canine pupulation, your pooch will meet new friends in all shapes and sizes. There’s even an agility course for dogs who like trying new things. Benches are available for two legged visitors and clean up bags are provided. No bones about it, your pup is going to love this park!
