    “Thanks for the walk!”

    Hi, my name is Chrissy! I began walking with Wag in 2018 to put myself through real estate school, but completely fell in love with it! Selling houses and walking pups is how I earn a living, taking care of people and their pets is what I love to do. I can't wait to meet your best friend!

    “I know pups.”

    I worked as a dog walker in Boston, all my dogs loved me and I loved them. They knew they would have friends at the park or be taken care of on a solo walk. With Wag I have completed over 1,200 services, including boardings and sittings. Discipline is used in the general walk - especially when crossing streets. This allows us to respect each other. I love taking pictures of the pups. I have completed a certificate program in pet CPR. Your dog is in good hands.

    I don't walk dogs so much as I used to but I do enjoy the occasional walk with old and new clients. I'm a professional ceramic sculptor as far as career goes, and I'm definitely thankful for you all for funding my art and life as well as letting me visit your pups. Thanks so much!

    “Reliable, responsible, positive, happy dog walker!”

    I'm a passionate, energetic freelancer who has always had dogs, cats, and horses. I've ridden my whole life and grew up with Shepherds and two retired racing greyhounds. I'd love to take your fur friend out when you can't be around. Professionally I’m in insurance and risk management, and hold a MBA and several insurance designations (CPCU). I'm great at safety, spotting risks, and minimizing them. I'm reliable, confident, and capable and keep my commitments and enjoy doing a great job!

    “I Love Spending Time with your Dogs!”

    I am very good with puppies and dogs of all sizes, ages and medical conditions. I will make each visit a treat for your dog! I am experienced in basic medical care for both cats and dogs, including administration of medication (oral and injected) and subcutaneous fluids, wound care, nutritional care, and monitoring of current health issues. I am currently transitioning careers and have plenty of time and availability to devote to your dog!

    My name is Jake Langevin and I am new to the Bradenton area. I have been a Wag customer for some time and decided to become a walker myself! I have a 5 year old hound named Lilly who promised she won’t get jealous of helping her fellow K9 friends. I am excited to serve you and your beloved dogs!

    Most dogs love to run and romp in wide open spaces, and Dr. Ott’s Dog Park in the Orchard Park neighborhood is perfect when your pooch needs some exercise. There are two separate areas for large and small dogs and a quarter mile track around the big dog side. Fido can frolic in the grass and socialize with other pups while owners sit on shaded benches and chat while watching their dogs play. You will need to bring your own doggie waste bags to clean up after your pooch. If you are looking for a nice place to spend the night in town, check out the Ruskin Inn where two dogs are welcome for an additional fee.

    The Ruskin Commongood Park is popular for boaters, fishermen, and dog lovers. Neighbors in the area who own boats are often found taking their pooch for a ride down Ruskin Inlet, or lounging by the bank trying to catch some fish. The wide-open spaces are also a great place to walk Fido and let him chase a ball and stretch his legs. You can watch all the activities from a bench, but you will need to bring your own water bottles. There are trash cans in the park, and be sure to bring doggie waste bags to clean up after your pup.

    A unique and popular destination for Fido and his family is Pirates Point Fishing Resort at the mouth of the Little Manatee River. Pets are allowed at the resort, but you will need to keep Fido on his leash and be sure to clean up after taking him for a walk. You can spend time on the water canoeing, or hanging out near the river fishing and enjoying the sun. The kids will have fun with the heated swimming pool, and the units feature all the amenities of home, just bring your pup’s dog bed. People who are looking for a great vacation spot where Fido will have an pawsome time should check out Pirates Point.

    Developed from 258-acres of mangrove swamp, the E.G. Simmons Regional Park is a great place to walk your pup. The paved trails through the area make it easy to stroll with Fido and the kids. You can admire the gardens and natural areas or let the kids play in the recreation area. After walking the trails, you can take a break at the picnic area and refill your water bottles before heading home. Or if you are looking for a staycation, consider pitching a tent at one of the camping spots and spend quality time with your pup and family around a cozy campfire.

    Spending time at the Cockroach Bay Preserve State Park is fun for the entire family, including Fido. The preserve is located near Little Manatee River, and you can walk through the area and admire the mangrove swamp. You will need to keep your pup on a leash, and there are no water fountains or trash cans available, so be prepared to bring water bottles and bags to dispose of your trash. If you enjoy getting back to nature, exploring through different types of trees and plants, and encountering horseshoe crabs which early explorers called cockroaches -  this is the perfect place to spend quality time with your pup.
