    “Energetic & fun! Can’t wait to walk your pups!”

    Hi there! My name is Molly. I have worked with dogs for over 20 years now, got my first dog at age 7, and I have 2 Pomeranians & a pitbulI. I have worked in animal shelters for years before, and most recently managed a dog boutique/grooming salon in West Hollywood. I have experience with taking dogs on long walks multiple times a day, feeding them, and taking them out for play time, etc. I’ve worked with injured pets, puppies, older dogs, administering medications, and some training as well!

    “Woofer Walker”

    A passion for animal care is a guiding principle in my life. I’ve cared for other’s pets as well as my own (including special needs pets) I’ve been active in various volunteer, fund raising & dog training activities, and have obtained obedience & therapy certifications w/my own dogs. Having been a dedicated career professional for over 30+ yrs, I’m now looking forward to a new chapter in life in which I can help pet parents, in applying both my knowledge & love for animals as a dog walker.

    “Dogs are MY favorite people.”

    I. LOVE. DOGS. 🐶 Animals have been a part of my life since I was born with our Schnauzer, Benji. There’s never been a year where we haven’t had a dog. When I was growing up, I would watch all of our neighbor’s dogs and take them for walks. It’s something I have always enjoyed. Today, I also volunteer at the local human society because every animal needs a chance to be loved. I’ll do whatever it takes to make your dog feel loved while you are gone.

    Hello there, my name is Alexa! For the entirety of my life there has been a dog by my side. I've grown up around dogs of all ages, breeds, and backgrounds, which taught me patience, respect, and love for all animals. After walking dogs for Granada Animal Outreach during my stay in Granada, Nicaragua, I realized the true strength and love these animals have within their hearts. Such an experience will forever stick with me. As an avid hiker I love the feeling of the fresh air and exercise, as I'll hope your dog does as well! A healthy dog is a content dog after all. I will make it my top priority to treat your dog with patience, kindness, and the care deserved to ensure your Wag! experience is everything you imagined it to be!

    Hi, my name is Matt and having a rambunctious lab/pit mix has turned me into an exceptional dog walker. If you would like someone who is kind to animals and knows how to handle all the different situations that may arise during a walk then I am your dog walker.

    “Every dog deserves love and attention!”

    I’ve had dogs, cats, and other small animals my whole life and have always had a passion for them. I’ve walked dogs on Wag over 200 times, and over 100 miles! I am also a vet tech and have lots of hands on experience with animals and their medical requirements, so I can help out with anything of that nature! I’m a cat foster as well, so I’m happy to help with any cat needs you have! I would love to be your regular walker! I care so much for animals & would love to become your pet’s friend!

    If you live in Richmond, you are extremely lucky to have a dog park close by! The city is home to Judy Rains Memorial Dog Park. The park has a walking trail that takes you to Lake Reba. In addition, it has a playground so you can even take your kids! The dog park has two play areas: one for big dogs and one for small dogs. The park is even known to have dog toys that all dogs can play with. And the best part? You can feel free to leave the leash at home and let your dog run free!

    Ford

    Located in the small community of Ford in the northern part of Richmond, you will find the Fort Boonesborough State Park. This state park is loved by everybody in the area. Not only is this a historically significant site that has been protected and preserved by the city but it is also a wonderful place to take your dog to play, sit and relax. The park has plenty of open spaces, seating and shade. Furthermore, it is so large that you are unlikely to have to share space with anyone, making it perfect for a quiet day. Take a leash, a good book and enjoy the scenery with your pooch!

    Located only 27 miles from the heart of Richmond is the bustling city of Lexington. Unlike Richmond, Lexington is rich in dog parks. It has not one, two or three, but four dog parks that you can take your dog to! The parks -- the Masterson Station Dog Park, Coldstream Dog Park, Wellington Dog Park and Jacobson Dog Park -- are so close together you could even visit them all in one day. Interestingly, each and every park is completely off-leash! Leave the leash at home and let your dog make some new friends! You both will have a pawsome time in Lexington.

    If you love your dog and would do anything for them -- which we are betting you do and you would -- you need to visit the city of Versailles, 43.6 miles away from Richmond. Versailles only has one dog park, but it is definitely worth the trip! The Woodford County Dog Park is a large stretch of land where your dog can play, run and make new friends without a leash! The park also has plenty of amenities such as water bowls and doggie poop bags. However, you should take your own toys as the park is rarely full of dogs.

The East Frankfort Bark Park has a large fenced-in area with plenty of trees and seating. It also has a creek running through it and a dog agility course! Your dog will have a pawsome day there. The second activity you mutts check out is the Buffalo Trace Distillery and on-site dog park. Get your drink on at this dog-friendly distillery while your puppy enjoys some time out in the fresh air, making friends with other distillery visitors’ dogs!
