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.

I love animals. All kind. I also love working with kids. I am a people person. I am very reliable and friendly. I love to walk. That is my enjoyment time in the evening, to walk my dog. I help out all my neighbors and friends with their animals when they need me. I work for a couple hours a day at an elementary school. I am married and have 3 teenage kids. I have one dog. I would like to have more animals.

“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!

Hi! My name is Jen and I have been a Wag! Walker for a year and a half now. I love this job because I love dogs and I love being outside. I always think safety first when it comes to walking your pup. I keep dogs away from the street, other animals, and anything that might trigger them to pull. I can't wait to meet your pup. Happy Wagging!

Dog Walking in Lake Villa

Nestled in the northeast corner of Illinois is the village known as Lake Villa with a population of almost 9,000 people. Lake Villa is situated in a beautiful rolling landscape, and as part of Lake County, it has plenty of lakes within its vicinity and in the surrounding county. Many tourists visit each year to experience these lakes and all they have to offer, but many other exciting things are going on in Lake Villa that both you and your dog will love. There are a couple of veterinary offices within Lake Villa, but in the greater Lake County area, there are plenty more.

If you've had a long day of enjoying the outdoors with your dog in Lake Villa and you're ready to refuel and recharge at a great local restaurant, check out Reno. At Reno, your dog can join you at one of their pet-friendly outdoor tables, and you can enjoy dishes like their Oasis Pizza, Working Man Sandwich, and their Wisconsin Burrata, and if Fido is lucky (or being a very good boy!), he might sneak a few morsels for himself. Whether it's grabbing something tasty to eat or spending a day at the lake, there is so much to do in Lake Villa with your dog!
