Hello, I'm Sheri and I'm a true Tampa native who grew up with dogs and horses. I have been walking and caring for animals since I was a teenager. It has always been fun to me! I treat every dog with loving kindness, the same way I would want my own dogs treated. I have experience with many breeds from miniature Dachshund and Schnauzers to Great Danes and Doberman Pinschers. I truly enjoy caring for all all dogs. Your dog will be in loving, caring hands and will have a very pleasant experience!

“Don’t worry about Rover, I’m heading right over!”

I'm looking forward to walking your dog(s). I received my first dog at the age of 7, a mix beagle and basset hound. Her name was Penelope and she was my right hand girl! Since then, many dogs/pets have been in my life and definitely made it a happy one. I am thoroughly enjoying my experience working with Wag! In addition to walking your dog(s) I give them my personal attention with lots of back scratches and hugs.

I always had dogs growing up. I have raised two dogs for Southeastern Guide Dogs, fostered rescue dogs, and now volunteer with a group that helps take care of the homeless residents' dogs & cats in my area. I used a professional dog trainer to increase my training knowledge and help train my dog reactive border collie/lab mix. My current two dogs are both rescues.
