Greetings! I'm a proud dog mama to a beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who I rescued. Growing up I had three dogs so having furry friends brings me great joy. When I'm not working or walking my own sweet pup around the neighborhood I love to hike and check out the food scene.

“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.

“Walking your dogs to keep their tails wagging!!!!!”

I discovered my love for walking dogs after adopting my precious Spaniel mix, Muffy! I will always treat your dog like my own and grow to love them like my own! I watch to make sure they are not getting too hot or cold during their walk and that they remain safe. Making sure they get a fresh drink of water after their walk is very important to me. I have experience with older dogs and handicapped pups and understand that their needs on a walk are different from that of a younger energetic pup.

I'm Melanie, and I've been a dog lover all my life! I currently work at a busy St. Louis veterinary clinic. My animal hospital career began in high school as a kennel attendant and I have moved on to various positions (technician work, administration) over the last ten years. I have been dog sitting and dog walking as a side gig for almost five years. I think dogs make some of the best company, and I can't wait to meet your best friend!

Hi! I really love walking dogs. It was the first job I had growing up, and it made sense since I grew up with dogs and enjoyed being outside. Now I’m a student at Loyola looking for ways to work outside and be around dogs again. I have worked with many different kinds of dogs of various breeds (Chihuahuas and Weiner dogs to German Shepherds and Pitbulls), sizes, personalities (shy to high prey instincts to high energy), and training backgrounds.

“High energy dogs please”

I have had 3 dogs 15lb, 40lb, 90lb so I’m use to any weight. The 90lb is a puller so no dog will be too much to handle. I like to let the dog choose the walk and I try to set the pace. I’m training for a half marathon so if it’s my running day and your dog is a runner we will try to break some mileage records

Hello! I have been caring for dogs for most of my life. First we had Katie, a golden retriever mix, then Daisy, a Brittany Spaniel mix that was fast and agile. Zeus, a big black German Shepard mix, joined the family a few years ago. I've done a lot of dog-sitting and dog-walking. I don't mind jogging with them too! I did dog walk professionally in various neighborhoods of New York City for a few months during the summer of 2014, and I've been walking for Wag off and on for a few years now!

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.
