“I'm ready to explore and exercise with your dog!”

I love animals and I'd be excited to take care of yours! I have two poodle-elkhound puppies of my own and I grew up with labradors and small dogs. I have experience in watching cats and reptiles as well. I'm flexible with my scheduling, detailed when it comes to your pet's specific care, and willing to go the extra mile so your pet will be safe and happy. Puppies are my favorite to watch, but I have experience with all ages, sizes, and temperaments. I can't wait to meet you and your pet family!

“A walk a day keeps the in house energy away!”

Currently a junior at Louisiana State University. Previously worked as a summer camp counselor but I love dogs also and have been a dog owner all my life. Not really doing this job for a need of money I just truly enjoy spending times with dogs and I feel this is a productive and helpful way to spend my free time. I’m still taking this very serious because I know how much people’s pets mean to them.

“Be excellent to each other!”

Hi there! My name is Rachel, I am a second year vet student at LSU and I’m very excited to get started back up on Wag! I have two dogs of my own, a pittie and a lab mix, so I understand it can be challenging for pet owners to get all their energy out for their big (and little) fur babies! So I am here to help, especially in these crazy times! Whether your dog is large or small, old or young, pulls or not, I’m very excited to meet them and give them a great Wag! walker experience!!
