“I've been away from Wag for a year but I'm back!”

Hi, I'm Kysha and I'm new to the Gainesville area. I've had amazing dogs in my life from the day I was born up until now. For many years I've provided loving care for dogs that varied in age, breed and size. I love spending my free time with my pup Gracie who goes everywhere with me. While working for Wag, I can combine two of my favorite things; the great outdoors and caring for furry friends. You can rest assured that your beloved pooch is in the best of care when they are on a walk with me.

Hey there fellow puppy pals! I have owned/had 6 dogs in my lifetime: a poodle (super smart dog), 3 shih tzus (cuddly and lovable of course), a shiba Inu (very energetic and playful), and a golden weenie (very graceful and loyal baby). I have been a pet sitter for a beagle- shih tzu mix and it inspired me to continue to pursue my puppy passion! I’m looking forward to walking, loving, and tending to your precious pooch! Thank you! :)

My earliest memories have dogs in them! I grew up with a family that adored dogs as much as I do and they were such an important part of growing up. However, after moving to the bay area some 25 years ago, I have not be able to have the freedom to have a dog of my own. To make up for this canine deficiency I have fostered dogs, volunteered for rescue shelters and gladly watched and cared for various friends' dogs through the years. Wag is giving me an opportunity to fill the dog shaped hole in my heart :). So excited to meet your pooch and get some fresh air together in this awesome city!
