“Canines and Soldiers Will Always Keep Moving!”

I would like to share some of my steps with a friendly pet that could use some exercise! I love to motivate my friends, family and military soldiers, but it's time to share some of that motivation with friendly pets who want to get outdoors more! If your pet doesn't like going outdoors, I want to be the pet walker that changes that. My goal is to make fitness fun and motivating! I also seek to build relationships with not only your pet, but you as well. Good service brings great relationships!

Hello! I’m Paul! I personally use Wag! to hire walkers so that my English Bulldog Missy can get outside for walks while I’m at work, so I know how important a good walk is for your dog. I grew up with yellow labs and have experience taking care of numerous breeds of dogs. I also have done overnight pawtys watching friends' dogs while they were out of town. If you’re looking for a reliable and friendly dog walker, look no further!
