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.

Hi! I'm a microbiologist by day but caring for dogs is my passion. I've lived with multiple dogs in my household since I was young, in my view they are the single greatest gift our ancestors created for us. I think every dog deserves exercise and fun in their daily lives, and it's a shame that sometimes our busy schedules don't allow us to give them as much as they deserve. I'm glad to be a part of the solution to that problem!

I’ve grown up with dogs. I adopted my girl Jill about 6 months ago, she turned 7 after the first month. My heart goes out to those older shelter pups and I’ve dedicated myself to rescuing those “less desirable” doggos. I consider any dog a puppy no matter their age. Love small and large dogs!

“I already love your dog.”

My husband and I have two dogs, a blue heeler and a whippet. We also have 2 small house cats. I'm a full-time student, so I'm only out of the house for about 4 hours every day at school. I have a cousin who walks with Wag! and we've just loved seeing her experience, so we were inspired to do Wag!. We are animal lovers and wish we could adopt more, but maybe when we have a bigger home someday. Send us all the doggos!

Dog Walking in Marengo

Marengo, Illinois is located within McHenry County, and was founded in 1835. The interesting name, Marengo, stems from the Battle of Marengo during the French Revolution. In the city of Marengo, there are two dog-friendly lodging accommodations. Both of the accommodations are affordable and allow multiple pets to stay at one time – even bigger dogs.

There are two dog-friendly restaurants in Marengo: Joe’s Place and Café 20. Joe’s Place serves a variety of meal options such as lasagna and soups. The most popular dish on the menu is called “Grandma Pearl’s Pulled Pork Sandwich.” Two outside tables are designated as dog-friendly, so you can enjoy some delicious barbecue while spending quality time with your dog. Café 20 is well known for its welcoming atmosphere where you can enjoy a meal or a drink with Fido. Dogs are welcome to dine at the outdoor tables here. The café’s menu ranges from appetizers to full-on meals, including build-your-own burgers, pizza, and pasta!

Although the two restaurants in Marengo are puptastic places to grab some grub, numerous other dog-friendly restaurants are just around the bend, in the cities of Algonquin and Crystal Lake.
