“I’m a medical student who loves dogs!”

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! I have a busy schedule now that school has started, but love to fit in walks when I can. I look forward to meeting your fur babies!

Hi! I’m Rachael! Growing up, I’ve always had dogs, ranging from small to medium/large. I signed up for Wag because I can’t have a dog in my apartment, but I need a little more pup time in my life! I’m looking forward to meeting new dogs and spending time getting us both exercise! When I’m not walking for Wag, I enjoy reading, traveling, and trying new things.

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.
