In another life, I was a dog. I was probably a Border Collie because I get most excited having work to do outdoors and a mission. I grew up with all different kinds of dogs, horses, snakes, rodents and found out really quickly I get along best with people who love animals (and humans, we're animals too!). I am a teacher and adventurer with a passion for satiating scientific curiosity. I am punctual, honest, fun, calm and loving and will take care of your dog(s) as if they were my own furry companions. I can't wait to meet you and your furry companion(s) and represent Wag! with pride.

“Wet noses, Wiggly tails and Wag walking, my fave!”

Hi my name is Laura! I grew up with the two most wonderful dogs who were always there for me and showed me what it was like to care for a furry best friend. Animals are important to me and I am excited to have a job where they are the priority! Wag is awesome to be apart of because I get to be that person for your furbaby to get them outside during the day while you’re away. Always know they are in good hands with me and that they will be getting lots of attention, treats, and a great walk! :)

I love taking walks or even going on occasional runs with my nanny family's dog. I am very responsible and always have my phone with me in case I need to be contacted or need to contact anyone in emergency. I am very organized and I don't schedule anything unless I am 100% certain that I am available for the time. I can't wait to meet your furry friends and take some great walks.

Dog Walking in Belvidere

Sitting about 800 feet above sea level in central Illinois, Belvidere is a thriving community with a population of more than 25,000 residents. Newly established, the city was originally named Elysian Fields for the magnificent beauty of the local landscapes. It acquired its present name a few decades later, after Schloss Belvidere in Germany. The downtown area is full of cultural landmarks. Kishwaukee River divides the city into two halves, offering beautiful riverfront views and shaded parks.

The downtown area is on-leash only, but several great places within the nature preserve along East State Street allow pooches play and frolick off-leash! There are also two vet clinics right in the downtown area to take care of your pooch in case of accident or emergency.

Beaver Bluff Conservation Area lies about 11 minutes west of Belvidere’s downtown and is worth visiting once you are in town! This huge nature preserve features just under 80 acres of lush woodlands and a creek. People say it’s extremely beautiful in spring, when the flowers blossom! The area has a designated dog park where pooches of all sizes can play and run off-leash. For your convenience, the park has a small dog area, benches, and drinking water during the summer.
