Hi there, I'm Shanna! I have loved having dogs around me all my life, from one grandmother's obedience show dogs to the other grandmother's many adopted strays to the rescued Boxer who was my best friend as a kid, to the goofy fluffball spaniel back home in NH who shuns me whenever I pack to come back to Boston. I personally took both of my dogs through obedience training classes, and worked as a walker and sitter for neighbors for several years. I have been a pet sitter for oodles of other animals, from cats to chickens, and have several years of equestrian work and training experience as well. I can't have a dog with my current work schedule and apartment, so helping your furry friend get some exercise will be a wonderful way for me to get some canine companionship! I can't wait to meet your dog!

Hello! I'm Jeremy, I have been working with dogs since 2012 as a volunteer and as a dog daycare attendant and dog walker. I love that dogs get their humans outside getting exercise in the fresh air, and there is a natural peacefulness that dogs bring to the human/canine relationship. I love dogs of all different breeds, I love mutts/rescues, and I look forward to spending some time with your pooch!

Hi there! My name is Sydney and I love animals, especially dogs. I've spent my whole life around dogs and I currently have two, 6 y/o English bulldogs. I'm a college student, enrolled in all online classes, so my schedule is extremely flexible. I've been petsitting and dog walking for the past 7 years, since I was in high school. I'm very active so I can run with your dog if they like and I can also bring my own dogs along, if your dog would prefer company on a walk. I'm very responsible and I love all types of dogs!

Hi, I'm Lori and I want to walk your dog! I have had dogs all my life and currently I have a 14 year old Boston Terrier and a 3 year old English Bulldog, both are rescue dogs that were adopted when they were 2. I am early retired and decided that I would like to work part-time to keep busy while being in control of when I work. Working with Wag has the added bonus of being with dogs and getting great exercise. In addition to walking my dogs I also walk dogs as part of volunteer work at a local organization. I have taken care of pets for family and neighbors, including Labs, Huskies, mixed breeds and a Pitbull. Looking forward to meeting your fur baby!
