My name is Nichole and I live in Des Moines. I currently volunteer at an animal shelter, so I love working with animals! I have grown up with dogs of our own, but am unable to have one at the moment. I would enjoy helping out a dog that would otherwise be cooped up all day.

Hello! My name is Lucas and I’m a recently graduated undergrad who loves dogs! I have been around dogs my whole life and have loved every second of it! I can’t wait to meet you and your best friend.
Hi, my name is Lilly! I’m walking dogs for the summer until I go to grad school in August! I have my own furry friend that I love to walk daily - she’s a 3 year old golden doodle named Luna - and it always makes me happy to get out of the house with her. I’ve been babysitting, housesitting and dogsitting for years, so I have no problem dealing with stressful situations or busy schedules! I would love to take care of your dog(s) and make sure they get their daily exercise (and have fun doing it!)

“I’m new to wag, but ready to walk!”
Hello! I am new to Wag and can’t wait to get started! I have walked/watched 4 other dogs big and small for friends and family before joining Wag! I look forward to growing that number and have experience with many different type of dogs already (golden puppy, poodle, labs & golden-doodle)! Dogs deserve the best care and exercise. A daily walk for a dog can help maintain a healthy weight, improve their mood, and is great for heart health. Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile.

Hello, I am a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota. I studied journalism and anthropology and I'm now relaxing in Ames. I am from Minneapolis and just moved here this past summer. I grew up with a dog, but I am too busy to have one of my own right now. I enjoy the company of dogs and hope to bring them joy with our walks.
I am a college student at Iowa State University. I am living super close to campus so I have many trails and sidewalks to walk along. I live an active lifestyle. I go on runs or walks frequently so this is a perfect job for me!

I have lived with dogs all my life and they will always have a special place in my heart! My family has owned all kinds of dogs, and I haven't met a dog I didn't like. My love for dogs extends even to those I meet for the first time regardless of their size or temperament. Right now I don't have a dog of my own, so I am ready to give your dog all of my attention and eagerly look forward to our walks!
