Hello! My name is Abby and I love all things fitness and dog related! I joined wag over a free summer I had before beginning grad school here at DMU and fell in love with it during my first walk! I have two dogs at home so I am experienced with walking multiples, and I have also handled puppies, elder dogs, and dogs with dog aggression. I am comfortable with it all!
