I would love to walk dogs living in and around the Soulard area south of Downtown St. Louis. I have owned six different breeds of dogs during my lifetime, but am well-rounded with other species of pets also. I admire people who rescue animals.

Hi, I’m Nora! I LOVE dogs and I can’t wait to go on adventures with your pup! I have experience with all sorts of dogs, young and old, from Shih poos to Beagles to Goldens to Cane Corsos. I’m very organized and will always send a picture of your dog from our walks. I used to be a dog owner myself (I miss my golden, Liesl, everyday!) and I know what it means to be responsible for keeping your dog and your home safe. You can count on me!

Hi, I am Paige. I have an unbelievable love for dogs, and I am here to help you care for yours. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Human Biology, at the University of Southern California. Upon graduation, I plan to attain a doctorate degree in Physical Therapy. I enjoy helping people and animals in any way that I can. I regularly find myself watching over my friends animals while they are away, and I have 13 years of experience caring for a Rottweiler/Labrador mixed breed dog. He was my best friend, and hopefully your dog will be too!

“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.

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!

Hi! My name is Alex. I have 1 fur-baby (Athena) at home - she is a Golden Retriever/New Foundland mix who loves snow and playing in any body of water. Any time I get to meet a new dog, it makes my day! My friends and family crown me with the superlative, "most likely to be wherever the dog is at a party." I absolutely love dogs and would be honored to have the opportunity to take your pup for a walk.

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.
