“Fur babies are the best!!”

I love animals and have always been around them. I grew up around dogs, cats, snakes, horses and small pets. I currently have a spoiled 8 1/2 year old pitbull named Rio that I have raised from a puppy and I also have a 1 1/2 year old Rottweiler named Loki that I also raised from a puppy. I love to take my dogs for rides in the car, hiking trails, and enjoying being lazy and snuggling on the couch.My dogs are part of the family. Dogs are a true best friend.

“Less like dog whisperer, more like genuine spirit!”

I was the sole caretaker with my huge Golden Retriever, Oliver, walking him every day, working on training, and even wrangling him in the bathtub! Now that I have my own thriving doggy business since Jan 2019, my besties and I are never bored again! Days I'm available, I'd absolutely cherish time with yours! I feel so blessed that dogs of all breeds and sizes feel immediately comfortable in my presence, and out of the 500+ walks I've taken for Wag, only 1 time was I unable to gain a pup's trust!

Hello I'm Victoria. My experience with dogs have been owner of many dogs, from the very small (Yorkie my current dog) to big (Great Pyrenees). I have also fostered and babysat dogs. I love dogs and their different personalities. I have been called the dog whisperer because most dogs just seem to calm down and listen with me or they are really happy to see me.

“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.

“A lot more walkin means a lot less barkin :)”

I absolutely love pets of all kinds. I personally own three pups, a chi weenie, a beagle, and a St. Bernard mix so I am super familiar with walking the different sizes. I am a college student looking to interact and care for your fur baby as often as needed. I also have experience with cats and bunnies. Caring for your pet as a job isn’t work at all! I always wanted to be a vet as a kid, but can’t wrap my head around biology. Here, I still get to spend my dad with super sweet pets so win-win!
