    I'm a lifelong dog owner and personal dog sitter. Taking out my dog for a nice hike in the forest is blissful. Fur babies just add a very special element into our lives.

    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.

    “Lover of all animals!!”

    Hi I'm Lisa! I have always loved pets and wanted to be a veterinarian when I was little. While I did not become a vet, I have always had cats and/or dogs in my home and even at some points a lizard, bird or hamster! I love being outdoors and walk pretty much every day, even in the snow and cold! I have a very handsome dog named Bailey who loves to play tug of war and get long belly rubs. I look forward to walking and caring for your beloved doggy and to giving them an awesome walking experience!

    “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.

    “"Woof woof! Arfarfarf!" -- happy pup review”

    Hi! I am responsive to dogs' needs, wants, stresses, and feelings. I have experience with rescue dogs -- generally no problems accommodating dogs with anxiety, medication, or other issues.Growing up, I learned that dogs are part of the family, so you can expect that I will treat your pupper like a valued family member. I have a lot of patience and understanding for animals and genuinely enjoy hanging out with and caring for them.
