    I am a responsible, trustworthy person with a wealth of experience with dogs. Along with caring for my own, I've walked, pet sat, boarded and fostered dogs for family members, friends and associates throughout my life. My early experiences working at a pet shop and as a veterinarian's assistant provided a foundation of dog care knowledge that I've continued to build on ever since. After a lengthy career in the Information Technology sector I opted to retire early and pursue rewarding part-time work. As a Fairfield resident for over 20 years, I'm committed to providing local Wag clients with the best dog walking service possible.

    Hello! My name is Megan and I just graduated from Georgia Tech with a biomedical engineering degree. I've always loved animals and have been taking care of dogs since I was 10 years old. I have a terrier-mix named Georgia who is 13 years old and still a very energetic pooch. I have over 12 years of experience walking and dog-sitting for all ages and breeds, from pups to seniors with special needs. I can't wait to get to know your dog and take it out to get exercise and explore!

    “Lots of love to give!”

    I have been working with dogs since I was 15, at a local boarding facility. The last 2.5yrs pet care has been my full time job. I've been doing both dog walking, and pet sitting in my home. I love spending time with dogs and bonding with them.

    Hi! My name is Rachel and I am 25 years old living in southern Fairfield county. I've been around dogs my whole life and I absolutely love them. I've been trusted by many friends to sit, board, and walk their dogs. I am currently unable to have a dog of my own, so walking other dogs is the next best thing. My top priority is your dog's safety and happiness.

    In the past I worked as a dog walker full time for over a year but recently decided to come back after a knee injury forced me to leave my previous job. My physical therapist said I should be out walking more so I figure dogs would be a great thing to work with again. I am excited to see some of my old friends as well as meet new pups!
