I have had dogs mys entire life, all were large breeds except one small. I also provided dog care for those in temporary need of shelter and care. I believe a healthy diet and exercise is key for a happy dog. I have taken several dog training courses and know how to keep calm and show no fear around a dog who is barking or asserting dominance. I understand the different behaviors and traits in each breed and deal with each dog appropriately.

I'm Bianca, I've loved animals all my life and grew up surrounded by dogs and cats my entire life.My love of animals started at a very age and I knew I wanted to work with all types of animals when I got older. Before working with Wag! I pet sat and walked for my family, friends and neighbors. I'm reliable, discreet, I pay attention to your dog's needs, I love walks and I'm genuinely concerned about your dog. Families have described me as a responsible,kind and fun-loving person I love being a pet sitter/dog walker because it gives me the opportunity to meet and bond with so many new pets and their owners. I enjoy all the different personalities of our client's pets and it's rewarding when an animal loves seeing you when you walk in the door. I can assure you that I will treat your fur babies like they were my own, not only because I'm an animal lover, but because it's how I want my "babies" treated while I'm away. I above and beyond my duties as a dog walker and sitter.

Dog Walking in Griffith

Finding a calming place to take a nice stroll with Fido is an easy task in the friendly town of Griffith, Indiana. As part of the Chicago Metropolitan Area, Griffith residents enjoy the "Hoosier" lifestyle that makes many residents — both four-legged and two — call this place their home. The local Griffith community gets together for all kinds of annual events, like the Broad Street Blues & BBQ Festival, Griffith Oktober Fest, and Rock N' Rail Music Festival — all scattered around one of Griffith's many public parks. Also, every Friday, May through September, you and Fido can head to Central Park for the Central Market. The market features live music, craft beer, and artisan food trucks and vendors.

Dog owners adore living in the bucolic neighborhoods of Griffith! They have everything they need here to keep their dogs safe, fed, and happy. You'll find a veterinarian and animal hospital right within the town limits. Pet owners can also take their dog to one of the 8 parks, 3 dog-friendly restaurants, and local groomer all within Griffith limits. On the peripherals of the town are nature reserves and two scenic trails to explore. If you head northwest, you can find a fenced-in dog park just outside of Griffith. This is the place to raise a family, doggos included!

Is your dog always up for a long hike through the wilderness? If you live along Jay Ave in Griffith, then you have quick access to the trailhead entering into Oak Savannah Trail. The trail begins in the Oak Ridge Prairie Park and continues for 8.4 miles, winding along the park's trees and wildlife. Along the way, you can see badgers, cottontail rabbits, and maybe even a bobcat! Don't worry, Fido's there to protect you. Plus, these animals are more afraid of you than you are of them! The rail-trail is asphalt, so you might need to bring doggie booties for Fido if he has sensitive paws.

Does your dog love a good Chicago-style pie? If you load up Fido in the car and head about 30 minutes east, you'll find the pet-friendly J&J's Pizza Shack.
