I'm an animal enthusiast that loves dogs! I've been working with all sorts of animals since 2012 when I started volunteering for the Animal Rescue League of Iowa. I've also been working at a boarding facility in Waukee, IA since 2013. I don't have any dogs myself (I actually have two cats), but I have worked with hundreds (if not thousands) of dogs throughout the past several years. I also do dog training as a little side hustle of mine.

“I’d love to be your certified Wag walker!”

Hey there! My name is Ricky, and I am an all around animal enthusiast, I owned a black lab/border collie mix named Zoe sadly she passed last summer, so I enjoy Wag to help fill the hole she left. The reason I joined Wag as a dog walker is that I love being active and I love walking dogs and keeping them healthy and happy as well. On top of Wag I work at a doggy daycare so I work with small, medium, large, young, adult, and elderly dogs on the daily. If you want the best for your dog, call Rick!
