I would love to walk dogs living in and around the Soulard area south of Downtown St. Louis. I have owned six different breeds of dogs during my lifetime, but am well-rounded with other species of pets also. I admire people who rescue animals.

“Strong, compassionate walker”

My name is Sarah. I'm a young professional with a profound love of dogs. I've been dog sitting for friends, coworkers, and people in the St Louis area for about 3 years now, and I volunteer at a local animal shelter as a dog walker. I’ve met some truly amazing dogs during that time and I look forward to meeting yours.

Hi, my name is Maddie, and I am so happy to be walking for Wag. I currently own a Pit/Rottweiler/Boxer mix named Midori who is the gentlest dog you'll ever meet. I adopted Midori from a shelter in Tucson, AZ while I was in college. I've been dog sitting dozens of dogs of all breeds for family, friends, and neighbors for as long as I can remember. I am also an active volunteer for Stray Rescue, which is just blocks from my apartment in downtown St. Louis. I have so much fun with all the dogs I care for, and I can't wait to have fun with your dog too!

Dog Walking in Edwardsville

Edwardsville is the third oldest city in Illinois, after being incorporated 200 years ago in 1818. Despite its age, the city is still on a fast track for improving the lives of residents and pups, and has also created over 125 miles of scenic, dog-friendly trails, bikeways, as well as seven animal hospitals.

The best place to go for dog lovers and their pups is Joe Glik Park, the largest park in the city with over 42 acres of lush green fields and thick rows of trees, and a pond. This serene area has a fenced-in portion for dogs that take up two acres, and over half a mile of paved walking trails throughout the park. Dogs can be off-leash in the fenced-in area, but must be on one outside of it. Additional features include water fountains, clean-up stations, a fishing pier, pavilion, picnic areas, trash bins, and benches.

The Watershed Nature Center is an area of preserved land with 40 acres of prairie, forests, and wetlands. It's completely untouched and protected, besides the paved walking trails, raised marsh walk, and welcome center. Dogs are welcome in the park while on a leash, with amenities at the center including a water fountain, trash bins, and benches. The trail extends throughout the park over 5 miles and will make a great day out with Fido.

Aside from the many other trails in the city, like the Delyte Morris Trail,  MCT Bluff Trail, and Glen Carbon Heritage Bike Trail, Edwardsville has an expansive city filled with plenty of things to do for humans and their pups.
