    Hi! My name is Heather and I recently relocated back to the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I spent the past 15 years living in Los Angeles where my dog walking journey began. I started walking dogs for Wag! Back in 2015, when they were brand new, so I’ve been with them a long time. I’ve lived with dogs my entire life and currently have my own chihuahua mix, as well as two parakeets. I enjoy spending time with dogs, whether it be a breezy walk or watching over them during a boarding.

    I love dogs and I love getting exercise- a perfect combination for walking your dog ! I have worked for numerous dog rescues over the years both walking,bathing and training the dogs as well as fostering over 30 dogs in my home where they were treated as members of the family. I have never met a dog I didn’t like-large,small,furry,not so furry,senior,puppy and everything in between-well you get the idea! I would love to meet YOUR dog and see how we get along!

    Hi, I'm Lauriel! I have been a dog lover since I was little, being raised with dogs and having owned my own dogs. I am blessed to have two Pomeranians, my oldest being 13 now. I have adopted my dogs, or I could say that they have adopted me. Over the years, I have walked my friends’ dogs & decided to start walking with Wag!. I look forward to the opportunity to share a piece of your dog's day & make it a little brighter for them.

    Hi there! I'm Ellie, and I am an animal lover to the tenth PAWer! Ever since I was little, I have always loved dogs, and would pet every dog I saw (with owner's permission, of course)! I have worked with dogs big and small with all kinds of personalities through pet sitting, walking, and day care. Ensuring that your dog has a safe and fun time is my number one priority.

    “Compassionate care; honest and reliable service”

    Hi! I'm Susan and I've been an animal/nature lover all my life. Dogs have been a part of my family for the past 40 years along with fish and birds. We currently have two rescues, a chiweenie and a lab-shepherd, that are absolute joys. I can't imagine life without companion animals nor the beauty and peace that nature provides. As a Wag! walker, I’m committed to compassionate care and assuring pet safety as well as being respectful of your home and privacy. Kisses and belly rubs galore!

    I enjoy being around dogs. I realize how important they are to their owners and treat them with that in mind. Dogs are good for people to be around because they can have a calming affect on you. I have owned several dogs over the years and I’ve always look forward to seeing them when I get home. I know that I have always had an empathy towards dogs and I feel that is an important thing in caring for them.
