Hello there, my name is Levi Caldwell, born in Seattle Washington then moving to California when I was fifteen years old. I grew up with dogs and of course love them! I have dog sat many times for very many different breeds and temperaments. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelor Degree in Sociology~Criminal Justice. I love being active: running, surfing, martial arts, kettle bells, but especially walking and running with a dog friend! I am currently in the process of joining the U.S. Coast Guard, but in the meantime, what better way to spend time than with our furry friends? I am looking forward to meeting you and your loved ones!

“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 :)
