Hi! My name is Matt and I can’t wait to meet your furry friend! I grew up in Pittsburgh and was lucky enough to have several dogs throughout my life. I volunteered at Furry Friends No Kill Animal Shelter where I discovered my passion for animals. Now I live in Kenner with my wife and our Bichon Frise, Brennan.

My name is Jen. I've been an animal lover all of my life. One of my very first clear memories is of bringing my first dog home at the age of 5. Her name was Skip and we were inseparable. The last two dogs that I owned and loved were rescues who came to find me - a mixed beautiful girl named Stella and a stubborn 'little' bassett hound named Elko. They both grew old and passed in their time. I love dog sitting and walking with my friends' pets and am really looking forward to meeting and caring for more dogs. I am super responsible and very mindful of the surroundings when I am in charge of someone else's beloved pet.

Hi! My name is Heather and I’m so excited to meet your doggo! I’ve been dog walking off and on for 15 years and worked at a dog day care facility as well so I’m pretty well versed with anything to come at me. I grew up with mastiffs so I’m not afraid of big dogs! I have a rescue schnauzer/terrier mix who has been a Wag client himself. I love to exercise and get fresh air so I’ll be just as happy as your pup on our walks!

I have loved dogs since before I could walk. While growing up, I walked our dogs more times than my parents, brother and sister walked them combined. I even had a coffee shop in Idaho named after my dog. I adjust every walk to the specific dog so whether your pet is a senior citizen, a large dog, a pack of three dogs, social, anti-social, or otherwise, I will adjust their walks to their specific needs. When walking dogs, they are my priority and I will make sure that they are safe and that they leave no trace. I have walked very large dogs (I own a great dane/weimeraner mix), 4 small dogs (it was even 5 for a few walks) , older dogs, and all types in between. I also understand that every dog is different...some are social, others are not and keeping them out of harms way is a priority.

Hi, my name is Lynn (prefer to be called Lindy). I took early retirement from the corporate world to do volunteer work and work on short contract jobs (please see LinkedIn if you would like to review my professional resume). Since my father was in the USAF at the time we could not have pets due to relocation from the US to Europe and Europe to the US every 3 years. When my father retired from the USAF I finally got my dream of a Boston Terrier. Throughout my life I have had Boston Terriers, Pugs, English Bulldogs, and Great Danes. I have always known my true passion and love in my heart was dogs. Now that I have no commitments and am very available I can pursue my dream of caring and loving dogs by dog walking, dog sitting and house sitting. I worked at a dog grooming boutique with full responsibility of the store. I checked in/out clients, assisted groomers, and much more. I am a trustworthy, responsible, organized, healthy, patient and kind person. I am ready to share the love in my heart for your dog (puppies, babies – I would call them). I will go over and above for the care of your dog.
