“pet sitting isn’t a job, but an exciting activity.”

Hello everyone, my name is Ian and I am currently a college student at GW. I signed up for wag because growing up I’ve always wanted a pet, but my family was too busy. Over the years I’ve loved taking care of and playing with friends and families pets and look forward to being your caregiver.
