Hey there! I’m 20 years old, a Military wife, and born and raised in the PG county area. I’ve had a love for dogs as long as I can remember. I grew up with a Golden Retriever, and watching my family/friends dogs when they would go away on vacation. I worked at a dog facility and a veterinarian hospital for a year before getting married and moving to FL, I currently have two dogs. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry companion! Thank you so much for trusting me to take care of them!

Hi I’m Chasati! Let me give your dog some fresh air and burn some of that energy off. My “day job” is a Registered Nurse. With working 12 hour shifts, I am free a lot. I have my own fur baby daughter, who is 4. She is an energetic German short-haired pointer named Molly. Trust me, if I can handle her energy I can handle your dog!! My friends and family trust me with their dogs when they are out of town or on vacation, so you can trust me for a little Wag! time.
