Hi! I'm Bianca. I have worked as a Wag Caregiver since 2015. I specialize in bully breeds but have experience working with most dog breeds. Paw parents describe me as an energetic and fun-loving person that treats all fur- babies with the kindness and respect they deserve. I pride myself on delivering service that go above and beyond your fur baby's basic needs. Why? because it's how I want my "babies" treated while I'm away. So, give me opportunity to make your paw pal my new best friend!
