    My name is Rhiannon, and I would love to walk your pup! Ever since I was a child my passion has been taking care of animals, dogs in specific. In fact, it's my dream to open a dog sanctuary for old or injured dogs. I currently take care of a beautiful pitbull named Nala and she's taught me so much about our little furry friends. My favorite pastime is walking, so choosing me means your dog gets a long healthy walk, because I'll love every second of it!

    I have always had a love for animals. Owning multiple dogs, cats, snakes, fish, hamsters and lizards in the past 28 years so I am very familiar with handling most animal species. I treat and handle each and every animal I care for just as I would my own animals, like a part of my family, with as much love and attention as they need! I have also worked as an Animal Care Tech for multiple doggy daycares in the past. Caring for all animals, of all shapes and sizes, is a lifelong passion of mine.

    “I love having fun with animals of all sizes!”

    I absolutely adore animals. I’ve worked with many as I’ve work in a pet store. I also have my own cats and have watched many of my friends dogs. I have watched dogs from 10 pounds to 75 pounds. I love being with them and hanging out. All I want to do is make the animals happy, as well as their owners!

    In another life, I was a dog. I was probably a Border Collie because I get most excited having work to do outdoors and a mission. I grew up with all different kinds of dogs, horses, snakes, rodents and found out really quickly I get along best with people who love animals (and humans, we're animals too!). I am a teacher and adventurer with a passion for satiating scientific curiosity. I am punctual, honest, fun, calm and loving and will take care of your dog(s) as if they were my own furry companions. I can't wait to meet you and your furry companion(s) and represent Wag! with pride.

    Animals are my life! I have always had pets growing up as a child and my love for them has grown into my adulthood even more. I have a passion for learning and understanding all different types of animals. My experience in Pet Care is from having my own pets and caring for family, friends and volunteering over the years. Due to my traveling for work ( entertainment industry) I can’t currently own pets so I’d love to help you with your pets on my available times.

    Ashlea is amazing with Ginger and I m so glad she is taking care of her while I m away. I get so many cute pics and videos and she communicated so well. Even after a disaster with the app and her being automatically taken off my booking since I asked her to come a little later than the request, she got with wag support and figured it out while I was on my way to the airport. 10/10 would recommend

Just around 10 miles come between you and this pawesome four-acre park. An important thing to know is that the park is membership-based.

Buckets filled with water are available for the thirsty pups, as well as plenty of pooper scoopers and trash cans. You'll also find seating areas and plenty of doggie toys to make the experience even better for your pooch.

    Elliott Dog Park is 18 miles from Rockton, in the eastern part of Rockford. The park is fairly large, giving pups the opportunity to run to their hearts' content, and there are two separate areas for small and large pooches. This park is membership-based as well, so if you're just passing through, this might not be the right place for you. If your four-legged friend is a fan of some good ol' mud rolling, this park will provide plenty of mud for them to wallow in, especially after a rainy day! Water is available here, but you'll need to bring your own waste baggies.

    Approximately 20 miles away from Rockton, you and your doggo can visit the great Palmer Park Off-Leash Dog Area, located in Janesville. The park offers pawlenty of scenic views and grassy areas that you can both explore! Doggos are allowed off-leash, but you should be aware that the area is not fenced. That should not worry you, though, because once you start walking along the paths, you will be surrounded by wilderness, so you won't need to worry about traffic or getting lost. (At least, as long as you stick to the trails!) Make sure your pooch is protected against ticks and bugs!

If so, just around 10 miles away from Rockton, you can find a doggie swimming facility where Fido can meet new friends and swim the day away! Dog Paddle Beach is a place where pups swim for fun, for therapy, for relieving arthritis, and for losing weight. This furrific facility has an indoor pool with a pleasant water temperature where doggies can swim even if the weather is cold outside. If you decide to visit, you'll need to provide proof of current rabies vaccination. The best part is that you are allowed to get in the pool and play with your pup if you want to!
