“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.

My animal hospital career began in high school as a kennel attendant and I have moved on to various positions (technician work, administration) over the last ten years.

Hi! I really love walking dogs. It was the first job I had growing up, and it made sense since I grew up with dogs and enjoyed being outside. Now I’m a student at Loyola looking for ways to work outside and be around dogs again. I have worked with many different kinds of dogs of various breeds (Chihuahuas and Weiner dogs to German Shepherds and Pitbulls), sizes, personalities (shy to high prey instincts to high energy), and training backgrounds.

“High energy dogs please”

I have had 3 dogs 15lb, 40lb, 90lb so I’m use to any weight. The 90lb is a puller so no dog will be too much to handle. I like to let the dog choose the walk and I try to set the pace. I’m training for a half marathon so if it’s my running day and your dog is a runner we will try to break some mileage records

Greetings, I'm Tori! I've grown up with dogs of every size my entire life, including Yorkies, Westies and Old English Sheepdogs. I'm currently working as a communications strategist, but I always try to devote my spare time to helping animals. I started volunteering at shelters a couple years back, and I absolutely loved it. I care for my own cats and puppy, while also making sure your furry buddy gets the exercise they need. I can't wait to meet your fur baby!

Hello! I have been caring for dogs for most of my life. First we had Katie, a golden retriever mix, then Daisy, a Brittany Spaniel mix that was fast and agile. Zeus, a big black German Shepard mix, joined the family a few years ago. I've done a lot of dog-sitting and dog-walking. I don't mind jogging with them too! I did dog walk professionally in various neighborhoods of New York City for a few months during the summer of 2014, and I've been walking for Wag off and on for a few years now!

“Your dog needs a walk, let me help you!”

I've been with Wag! for about 3 years, and I love it. I've always loved daily walks, and now with having a dog of my own, they join me. Over the years, I've cared for and walked many Wag! pups and would love to help you. I've had 2 family dogs I helped care for and I've cared for many neighborhood furry friends. Sometimes life gets busy, and your dog starts to feel cooped up, I get it! Let me be the one to help and make sure your pups are happy, tired out and ready for snuggles and treats.

“Giving extra care and love to all dogs I walk”

I am currently a student at Rockhurst University studying Occupational Therapy. I have always had a passion for dogs having several growing up. I have also had a passion for helping and caring for other people. I hope to combine the two and work with pet therapy.

Dog Walking in Troy

Troy is a small-ish town located in Madison County. Its convenient proximity to muttropolitan Saint Louis helped Troy to develop into the third fastest growing area in the US by 1978. Even with the growth that Troy is experiencing today, the place still has its small-town charm and family-friendly atmosphere that make it so interesting to visit. 

That family-friendly atmosphere includes furry family members, too! Troy has a veterinary hospital and an animal clinic that will take great care of your pup in case of any emergencies. 

If you're passing through the town with your pooch and you need a place to spend a couple of nights in, look no further because Troy offers a couple of pet-friendly lodging options. Visit the Red Roof Inn, Super 8 Troy, or Motel 6 Troy if you need accommodation. 

Even though there aren't any pet-friendly places that you can visit in Troy, the fact that Saint Louis is around 20 miles away from Troy means you're just a bone's throw from dog-friendly fun. Head across the Mississipi River and you can choose from more than 140 dog-friendly places! Isn't that pawesome? When it comes to dog-friendly attractions that both you and your pooch can enjoy in the vicinity, we recommend Saint Louis' City Garden and the Laumeier Sculpture Park.
