    “Looking forward to walkin’ your Rover all over!”

    I love dogs. I have spent 35 years teaching and coaching high school sports, it is time to retire and I am ready for a change of pace. I have rescued two dogs, one lived with me for 15 years and my current dog has been with me for 5 years. I enjoy exercising and training her. I enjoy the outdoors and I like to remain active. I understand the need to have someone who is reliable to take care of your pet when you cannot be there. I understand the needs of dogs, and enjoy their company.

    “Strong, compassionate walker”

    My name is Sarah. I'm a young professional with a profound love of dogs. I've been dog sitting for friends, coworkers, and people in the St Louis area for about 3 years now, and I volunteer at a local animal shelter as a dog walker. I’ve met some truly amazing dogs during that time and I look forward to meeting yours.

    “I’m limited to ~3 miles a day, pls msg me first”

    Hi, I'm Jim. I grew up with dogs and have always enjoyed their company. I understand that my clients consider their pets as family. Each dog has it's own personality and I love spending time with them. I haven't met a doggo I didn't like. I have a second job and usually am not available from 4PM to 11PM Mon-Fri Also, I have to limit my walks to 3 miles a day due a fractured ankle I suffered last year, but hopefully I’ll be putting in more miles in the future

    “Happy Paws make for Happy Pet Parents”

    Hi, I’m Jenn! I love all animals but especially dogs. I have been doing Wag for almost three years. I volunteer at an Animal shelter in my area. I have experience with dogs from a few months old to dogs in their teen years. Dogs of all different sizes, breeds, and mixes. I have worked with dogs that have some behavioral issues such as pulling, mouthy, extremely shy etc.   I will treat your dog (or cat) with the respect and love he or she deserves.

    “A walk is always better with a fur baby or 2 or 3.”

    I have always had a dog in my life. I love taking the 2 I have for walks but I also like to get extra walking time in for my own exercise and it is always more fun to have a fur baby with you on the adventure.

    I love dogs and really all animals. I've owned dogs, lived with dogs, and dog sat in the past. I can't have dogs where I live now, so getting to walk them is wonderful! I have experience with small and large breeds and welcome the chance to play with any type.

    Hi, my name is Maddie, and I am so happy to be walking for Wag. I currently own a Pit/Rottweiler/Boxer mix named Midori who is the gentlest dog you'll ever meet. I adopted Midori from a shelter in Tucson, AZ while I was in college. I've been dog sitting dozens of dogs of all breeds for family, friends, and neighbors for as long as I can remember. I am also an active volunteer for Stray Rescue, which is just blocks from my apartment in downtown St. Louis. I have so much fun with all the dogs I care for, and I can't wait to have fun with your dog too!

    “Understanding, thorough, caring”

    I have always loved animals. I do not have a favorite pet. I actually found the love of animals from bringing in strays as a child and going through various training for Veterinary Ass/Tech positions. I really can't wait to provide an essential need for your pet. I have my own critters so I understand how important their care is to an owner/ pet parent.

    This Midwestern city is located along the Illinois/Missouri state line, which is just a short 4.5 miles across the Mississippi River from Lovejoy. Lucas Park Dog Park is an off-leash, fenced dog park that requires an annual membership to use. This helps to ensure that all pups in the park are up to date on their vaccinations and insured. The park also includes fun doggie toys, water, a kiddie pool, and a waste station! City Garden is a very special feature in the area; it is a beautiful community garden that has interactive water structures and sculptures. Dogs are allowed to explore the gardens; however, they are not allowed in the pools.

    This community is technically located in another state; however, it is just 4 miles from Lovejoy and it is extremely accessible from Interstate 70, Interstate 44, and Interstate 64! Murphy Park, Loretta Hall Park, Columbus Square Park, and Norman Seay Park are great spaces to take your leashed pup on a walk, or to spend a fun afternoon picnicking or barbequing. Forest Park is an exceptional public space where you can walk your dog on one of their scenic walking trails and take in the beautiful views and landscape.  If you’re looking for dog-friendly lodging accommodations, privately owned properties listed by owners and via Airbnb offer rentals that welcome dogs.

Wilson Park is a well-kept park that has great landscaping, swimming pool, ice rink, baseball fields and walkways; dogs that are kept on leash are allowed on the premises, just make sure to clean up after them to keep this park looking gorgeous!

    Twenty minutes east from Lovejoy, the Collinsville neighborhood offers quick and easy access to Interstate 55 and Interstate 55. The Madison County Transit Schoolhouse Trail is a great place to take Fido for a stroll and take in some history! This trail used to be an old railroad system that has been recently converted into a useable walking path thanks to the nationwide efforts of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. There are several local eateries that cater to dogs, including Fazzi’s, Sonic’s Drive-In, and Kruta Collinsville Bakery! If you and Fido are needing somewhere to count some sheep, Drury Inn, Americas Best Value Inn, Comfort Inn, The Double Tree, and La Quinta Inn can accommodate you.

However, in all seriousness, this locale is extremely accessible, dog-friendly and intimate! The Madison County Transit Nickel Plate Trail and the Glen Carbon Heritage Bike Trail are great spaces for you and your pup to get some cardio and vitamin D; both trails are part of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy project that turns old, decrepit railroad tracks and transforms them into useable recreational paths!
