Hi I'm Will! I walk dogs full-time and it's great! I've walked and sat dogs of all breeds and types from 18 years to 2 months, from South African mastiffs to Yorkies and everything in between. Active and energetic dogs are my favorite to walk, and I've met so many repeat clients here in New Orleans. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to me, I look forward to providing puptastic service!

I'm a dad to two spoiled dogs one of which was a foster who conned me into adopting him. I'm the designated dog boarder for my friends when they go on vacation so it's not uncommon for me to have four dogs staying at my house sometimes. I grew up with dogs and couldn't wait to get older when I could get my own. I've always loved dogs and with Wag I can hang out with dogs and get paid, you can't beat that!

As a pet parent myself, I know how stressful leaving your pets can be and having someone you trust can make you feel at ease. I currently work part-time at a local Veterinary Hospital and have years of animal care experience in professional and personal environments. I started out working in a small pet shop in my late teens, and that is when I knew I wanted to work with animals. Since, I have worked in a public aquarium, pet supply retail, vet clinics and a no-kill animal shelter. These experiences have given me a wealth of knowledge to provide the very best care for all animals. I have fostered puppies, tiny kittens, senior dogs and cats. I have rescued and rehabbed many reptiles and birds. I am also in school to obtain my canine training certification. I would love the opportunity to help you and your pet feel comfy while you're away. I will try to work with any budget!

Dog Walking in Harvey

Harvey is a large community of about 23,000 residents located on the west bank of the Mississippi River. Just south of New Orleans, this district has over fifty veterinarians within a five-mile radius and countless activities for pups and their parents to enjoy -- including rafting, kayaking, and exploring the nearby French Quarter.

Some of the most popular destinations near Harvey are the dog parks. Wisner Dog Park, snuggled in between baseball fields and basketball courts, is home to a small, fenced dog run. Crescent Park, a robust twenty acres, is also home to a fenced dog run and offers unparalleled views of the Mississippi. Coliseum Square, home to a dog park in nearby NOLA, boasts a beautiful center fountain, a dog-friendly water bubbler, and complimentary doggie bags.

Harvey is home to nearly a dozen dog-friendly restaurants, including options for Chinese, American, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and Vietnamese cuisine. For a more unconventional meal, swing by Parrot Pete’s on Manhattan Blvd. They serve breakfast favorites all day, and their outdoor patio is pup-friendly.
