My name is Sophie, and I am a dog lover through and through. My family rescued and trained three dogs while I was growing up, and they were a big part of our family. We were very involved with the rescue that saved our dogs, and I hope to make dog adoption easier for others with my commitment to dog-walking. I was a dog sitter throughout my time in college, and I love walking dogs to give them the exercise and outdoor time they need to be healthy, loving members of the family.

“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 37 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!
