    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 currently own a 10 yr. old Dalmatian Mix (Bella) and 6 yr. old German Shepherd (Rex), and have had them both since they were puppies. I am experienced with the care it takes to train/raise a dog from the puppy phase to a full-grown companion! Everything that a pet owner can go through, I have gone through myself, so I feel very comfortable handling all types and sizes of dogs, and providing exceptional care when I get the opportunity to take your best friend for a walk/run! I can do walks in your neighborhood, drive them to a nearby dog park or play with them in your own home. What works best for you and your dog is my top priority! I hope to hear from you!

    “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!

    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. I'm looking forward to enriching your furbaby's day!
