    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.

    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.

    “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!

    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.

    My name is Mike, I am an active, outgoing, and sport loving individual, I strive to spend as much time in the outdoors as my schedule allows. While outside I rock climb, mountain bike, fish, hike, swim in addition to growing organic food which I solely consume during the summer and fall seasons. I have been lucky enough to be around dogs my whole life and I now work daily with my family’s border collies to provide goose control services for many; schools park districts, golf courses and corporate centers in the Lake County area. I have helped train all our dogs which currently provide goose control for our families business. I graduated in 2011 from Western State University of Colorado, in Gunnison with a degree Outdoor Recreation. One interesting fact is, I was bit 2 times before the age of 5, once by my parent’s dog and once by my neighbor’s dog. This incident has brought me closer than ever to dogs, but has allowed me to connect with them more than most individuals. I feel the dogs can sense or know what happened to me during my childhood.
