I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment. Due to a heavy school schedule I had to leave that job but now that Wag! exists I can still work with pups!

I am a semi retired professional with a passion for animals. Growing up on a farm in North Carolina I was exposed to a lot of dogs: hunting dogs, house dogs, guard dogs, herding dogs, etc. The advantage of living on the farm was that you got to play with the working animals when they weren’t working and I spent a lot of time with dogs learning valuable lessons of how they interact with people and other animals and how they think. All through my life I have been around dogs and cats. I have owned three dogs of my own and have had relationships with other dogs belonging to roommates housemates and neighbors. I am very attuned to the challenges of having a pet in the city and understand the importance of seeing that the animals get the proper attention and care. Caring for dogs is not just a job for me it’s a passion and it’s important that I give each dog I encounter the same attention that I would give my own dog.

The park is on a lake where furry friends are more than welcome to swim! People often fish here too, and say it is good for bass, which Fido would want you to cook for them. However, since it’s a nature preserve, be sure to practice good petiquette and pick up after your pooch!
