“Tell your dog I said, "Hi"”

I absolutely love animals. Growing up we had a dog and multiple cats, I fostered a dog for two years while his owners worked for the Peace Corps, and over one year ago I adopted my dog, Luna. I would consider it a privilege to walk and love on your dog!

Hi I'm Jonathan. I've lived in Louisville all my life and grew up with a house full of dogs and cats from a young age. When I was around 9 I began caring for the dog of an elderly neighbor and fell in love with walking and sitting ever since. I've since, had experience with all different sizes and many breeds from the age of 2 weeks up to elderly dogs. Having said that, I'm aware that every dog is special and all have different needs. I like to keep in shape and would love to keep your best friend fit, healthy and above all, happy. From a brisk walk to a long leisurely stroll, I'm ready to meet the needs of your pooch right away and to make sure you AND your dog love your Wag adventure.

Hi, my name is Martin. I’ve had dogs since I was a kid. I’ve dog-sat for a variety of dogs from a Maltese puppy to a Labrador Retriever. I’ve owned a Bernese Mountain dog and a Basset Hound in the city and took both for multiple walks each day. I love being around and working with dogs. Also, I am very cautious and careful when a dog is out of doors because I know that dogs are members of the family and should be treated with proper care and guidance.

Dog Walking in St Matthews

The city of St. Matthews, Kentucky is technically a city within a city! Despite being considered part of Louisville, which is only about nine miles away, St. Matthews has its own government. Many people consider St. Matthews to be a bedroom community, but don’t let that take away from all the city has to offer. St. Matthews was first incorporated back in 1950, and although it hasn’t been around very long, it’s still made quite a name for itself. It's home to two of the five largest malls in Kentucky, Mall St. Matthews and Oxmoor Center. If you like shopping, you know where to go!

Unfortunately, none of the shopping in St. Matthews is dog-friendly, so if you’re looking to take your furry, fashionable friend with you, you’ll want to head elsewhere. No worries, as Louisville isn’t far away. There are a handful of veterinarian clinics in St. Matthews, so whether you’re looking for care for a sick or injured pet or it’s just time for Fido’s wellness check, you have a few different options to choose from. Both you and Fido are sure to enjoy St. Matthews, and if you get bored, there are even more opportunities just a few miles away.

In the heart of St. Matthews, you and Fido can visit Brown Park! While this isn’t a dog park, it’s still worthy of a visit from you and your canine companion. This park has a paved walkway running throughout it, so you and Fido can enjoy a long walk together. There’s plenty of shade, so during the summer, your pup’s paws won’t get burned by the pavement. In autumn, the leaves turn to beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow, so if you’re going for a walk, make sure you snap some pictures. A leash is required since this isn’t a dog park.

Just over five miles from St. Matthews, you and Fido can go play together at Champions Dog Run! Whether your dog has a gold medal in napping or a blue ribbon in playing fetch, he’s sure to love this bark park. Champions Dog Run is nearly four acres, meaning your dog has plenty of room to run and play with his pawesome friends. You will need a permit from Louisville to use this dog run, which is standard at most dog parks in the city. Water is provided for both you and your dog, but the park tends to run out of baggies for clean-up, so you might want to bring some along from home.
