Hello! I am a 25 year old college graduate who recently moved to the Nashville area before beginning medical school in the Fall. Since I will soon not have the appropriate time to have my own dog, I’m taking this opportunity to spend my free time with the dogs of Nashville! I grew up in a family with dogs, and take every chance I get to spend time with the dogs of friends and family. I would love to add a little joy and exercise to your dogs day while alleviating some of the stress from you!

“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!

My name is Kit and I am so excited to be a part of Wag! I have had pets (cats and dogs) in my home since I was just a little thing and can’t get enough. We adopted our first dog when I was 16 and I don’t know how I survived before that! I’m comfortable with big cuddly Rottweilers and I’m comfortable with sweet little daushhounds. I’m always the first person my sisters and friends ask to watch, walk, play and stay with their little fur babies and I couldn’t be happier to help. I look forward to meeting your best friend.

My name is Maggie, and I'm graduating from medical school this spring before moving on to residency training. I'm looking for a way to spend time with pets during my time off since my schedule doesn't allow for having a pup of my own :) I've been a pet owner (both dogs and cats) my whole life and have over 10 years of experience dog sitting. I also studied animal science in college with courses in animal behavior and nutrition, worked part time as a veterinary assistant, and volunteered at the University of Minnesota animal hospital. I'm confident in my ability to make even the most nervous or hesitant dogs feel comfortable and safe. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your pet(s)!

Dog Walking in Solon

Solon is a city in eastern Iowa with a population of a little more than 2,500 people. There are several bigger cities nearby, and many people choose to live in Solon to get the small community charm Solon provides, and commute to work in bigger cities each day. Solon has long been a primarily residential city, but with its growing population has come several commercial facilities as well. Many people choose to live in Solon for its excellent school system as well as its parks and recreation programs. There isn't a specified off-leash dog park in Solon, but there are some in surrounding towns, as well as parks within Solon where you can walk your leashed dog.

One of the nicest places to walk your dog in Solon is on the Solon-Lake Macbride Recreation Trail. This trail was once a railway line, but it has recently been converted into part of a network of trails that connect across America. This portion of the trail stretches for just over five miles, and the crushed stone surface is ideal for dog walking, biking, or jogging, and snowmobiling or skiing in the winter. Solon is a lovely place to live with your dog, and exploring the Solon-Lake Macbride Recreation Trail is just the beginning of the adventures you'll have there!
