    “Four legged friends are the best!”

    *Woof!* I'm Joshua and I just said 'Hello!' in dog speak. I've been told I'm a good human and often get wet nose kisses in recognition of a job well done. Dogs are simply amazing and I absolutely love them. I appreciate dogs of all sizes and breeds, but big playful pups are my favorite. When caring for your dog, you can rest assured that your fur baby is in the good hands of a trustworthy human who is as loving to your four-legged friend as you are. Your pup is always priority #1!

    “I look forward to meeting you and your pups! :)”

    Hi there, dog owners! My name is Kylee (please excuse the different profile title, it has to use my legal name). I'm 26 and a college student whose two favorite things are animals and the outdoors. So when I'm walking your dog I'm not just working, I'm having a great time! I was raised with three dogs so I have lots of experience, but I haven't been able to have one of my own since starting school. Feel free to contact me with any questions, I look forward to meeting you and your pups!

    Hey there, I'm Cecile. I learned how to love and care for dogs from my older sisters. Pets have enriched my life. I'd like to, now, be of service to other dog owners. Your pet will be well taken care of, and adored, while in my care. I received my Veterinary Assistant certificate from Middlesex Community College in 2018.

    “Hi Middletown area! I can’t wait meet your dogs!”

    Hi! I’m Molly. I am a former bartender (Covid changed all that) and current Wag walker (I’ve been with Wag for over 2 years). I am new to the Middletown area and am Mom to three rescue cats. I’m a huge animal lover and former dog owner of many years. I have also worked as a vet assistant and am very comfortable around dogs (and cats) of all ages, temperaments, and activity level. I have an open availability at this time. I’m looking forward to meeting as many dogs as possible :)

    “I will treat your dog as one of my family!”

    I grew up with dogs on our horse farm & pet sat through college. I was a vet tech, dog groomer & kennel manager for 8 years at a vet before starting my own business so I can do various medical treatments, meds, etc. I have 2 large dogs- Griffey a humane society pup and JJ a shep husky rescue from Texas.. If you are going away for a weekend/vacation, my daughter, son and I all do house/pet sitting in your home. Keep your dog in the comfort of it's own home/schedule & not the stresses of a kennel.
