I've owned, cared for, walked, and boarded dogs for many years. I love being around dogs, getting to know them, playing with them, walking them, and giving them the opportunity to be themselves. I currently have two dogs of my own. They are one of the joys of my life, and I will treat your dog with the same love and affection that my dogs get every day.

Hello! My name is Emily and I am an avid dog lover! I am a proud dog mom for the last 9 years of an energetic Maltese (9yo) and Labradoodle (5mo). I’ve been a professional dog walker, sitter, home boarder and friend for many “fur clients” over the last several years. I am comfortable with BIG and small breeds, introverted and extroverted pups. I find enjoyment taking care of dogs of all kinds because I like to watch them explore their world. Your precious dog is sure to find a new friend in me!

I have been working in the pet care industry for approximately seven years now. I managed a daycare and pet boarding facility for four years and prior to that, I was a Kennel Supervisor for two years with a facility located in New Hampshire. More recently, I have worked as a Vet Tech in a general practice and emergency setting, as well as with a local animal shelter. Working as a Vet Tech has provided me with the opportunity to gain the knowledge and hands on experience of the medical aspect involved in providing care to both canines and felines. I have aspired to work with animals since I was a child and have always had a true passion toward them. I have years of experience in a canine pack environment, as well as one on one with most dog breeds. I also have personal experience, as I have two rescue dogs of my own. I feel this is very important when dealing with a client's pet, as it provides the assurance that their pet is in good hands. In addition to dogs, I have grown up living with cats my whole life. I also have worked with cats in both shelter and veterinary settings. From a ferrel cat to a lap cat, I have experienced both, yet love them all the same! I can confidently medicate any animal if necessary, including pilling to providing insulin injections. My main focus is currently working in the animal care field and furthering my education with my CVT. I absolutely love working in an environment where the focus is caring for animals. My ultimate goal is to own a rescue some day. I feel as though my passion for animals and my prior experience would be a great match for you and your pet! I look forward to hearing from you regarding your furry family members' needs!

Hi! My name is Michael! I've lived with dogs my entire life and have much experience from taking care of my own. Since the age of five, I've cared for a black Labrador rescue dog so I understand the need for interaction and exercise in a pup's routine. I now care for a 3 year old Weimaraner/Hound mIx. In the past I've walked and sitted for dogs belonging to friends and relatives. Every dog is unique so I look forward to getting to know your beloved pet and providing a pleasant Wag! experience!

“Hi I’m Holly! Your trusted dog walker & companion!”

I have always had a deep love for animals, especially dogs. I have been dog sitting for years before working for Wag, which I have been doing for 2 years now. I volunteered at the NEAS in Salem MA for a year. I think it is very important to be compassionate about animals and it shows a lot about a persons character. I am reliable, dependable, friendly and active. I would love to take care of your companion! Plus who doesn’t love tail wags and puppy kisses?
