“I walk for Wag! because I want to not need to”

Hi, I'm Sandy Reside,  I'm retired Air Force. My experience with animals is  from being a life long animal parent, working at a humane society and volunteering at a local wild animal hospital. I have always been an avid animal lover, I am a vegetarian due to my love of animals. I currently have three dogs and a cat. Even though I have a degree in human resources, I prefer to walk your dog (s)! I am an outdoors person and love to take dogs on walks. I will walk cats if needed as well.

Hello. Isn't this a perfect solution? Your dog wants to walk and so do I! While my children are grown and I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, I still find there is plenty of time on my hands. I spend some of this time going for a walk and enjoying the outdoors. I'd love to share some of that outdoor time with your fur baby. I've had dogs in my life as long as I can remember. I'm experienced with everything from a small pug, Jack Russell and beagles to larger breeds like a Catahoula, shepherd or bully breeds. I really have no preference or favorite type of dog because, just like people, each dog brings it's own personality and gift to the relationship. I'm sure your pup and I could enjoy a nice walk together.

I love animals. They have been a part of my life since I was born. My first dog, Jojo was so jealous of me when my parents brought me home that he got very depressed, but we soon became best friends and he lived with us until I was about 10 years old. I used to live on a farm in Canada and was surrounded by dogs, horses, cats, and cows. I love them all.
