    Hi! My name is Heather and I recently relocated back to the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I spent the past 15 years living in Los Angeles where my dog walking journey began. I started walking dogs for Wag! Back in 2015, when they were brand new, so I’ve been with them a long time. I’ve lived with dogs my entire life and currently have my own chihuahua mix, as well as two parakeets. I enjoy spending time with dogs, whether it be a breezy walk or watching over them during a boarding.

    I love dogs and I love getting exercise- a perfect combination for walking your dog ! I have worked for numerous dog rescues over the years both walking,bathing and training the dogs as well as fostering over 30 dogs in my home where they were treated as members of the family. I have never met a dog I didn’t like-large,small,furry,not so furry,senior,puppy and everything in between-well you get the idea! I would love to meet YOUR dog and see how we get along!

    Hi there! I'm Ellie, and I am an animal lover to the tenth PAWer! Ever since I was little, I have always loved dogs, and would pet every dog I saw (with owner's permission, of course)! I have worked with dogs big and small with all kinds of personalities through pet sitting, walking, and day care. Ensuring that your dog has a safe and fun time is my number one priority.

    “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 40 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!

    I enjoy being around dogs. I realize how important they are to their owners and treat them with that in mind. Dogs are good for people to be around because they can have a calming affect on you. I have owned several dogs over the years and I’ve always look forward to seeing them when I get home. I know that I have always had an empathy towards dogs and I feel that is an important thing in caring for them.

    “I’m just plain Barkable.”

    Hi! My name is Machelle. I look forward to meeting your furry family member and yourself as well. I take great care to detail. I can assure you that your dog will be safe and have a fun walk. Likes to roll in the grass? I’ll roll too. Likes to linger? That’s okay I might need a rest too. Likes to power walk? Don’t worry I’ll keep up. Affraid of water? I’ll carry you over the puddle. Doggie kisses? I’ll take them all day. Your dog won’t just have a walk they will have an experience.

    I have been a dog lover for my whole entire life. The past 30 years I have owned at least one dog and up to three dogs at one time. I love animals, in general, I’ve had many animals, including a bird, hamster, bunnies, and fish. I have watched dogs for my friends and relatives and I have walked dogs for my neighbors.

    Hi, I'm Briana! I have over 15 years of experience pet sitting and boarding, and have volunteered at shelters. I can keep up with the younger and athletic dogs, but am very familiar with special needs and geriatric dogs, and love each and every one in between.
