    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!

    “Shhhhh...don’t tell my cat that I’m a dog walker!!”

    I am a life-long animal lover and cat "mom." I have been a dog-sitter and walker for my "nephew" dog and friends' dogs for over 20 years. I work at an area college during the school year and have summers off. I love to walk whenever possible and spend my free time getting my steps with furry friends!

    “A walk a day keeps the vet away!”

    Hi! I'm Ellie and the most important fact to know about me is; I love animals! I moved to Natick from California where I was a dog walker for five years. I grew up in rural NY, we always had at least two dogs plus a bunch more critters. I recently graduated from Humboldt State University were I studied wildlife biology so I can help save all the animals. I am a natural with dogs of all sizes, some training experience, lots of energy for walks, and I can't wait to meet your best friend!

    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 I’m Brenda thank you for checking out my wag profile!! With 20 years of experience owning, training & caring for a variety of dog breeds, sizes, and personalities along with my love of the outdoors, is what brought me to wag. Safety will always be the main priority on walks & making sure your dog has a great walk with me. I am very clean, patient, energetic, friendly, and reliable! There’s nothing I would rather do than walk a dog. I’ll always come prepared for a great walk. (Lifelong tv crush on The Dog Whisperer- Cesar Milan!!!) Please pick me for your next Wag walk and I promise you won’t be disappointed!! Look forward to meeting your special 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!

    “I love all animals and caring for them!”

    I love running with dogs and I want to provide the best care possible. I have experience with behavioral training as well as minor health issues. I currently live with a senior cocker spaniel, Casey (see profile pic), and a parrot named Charlie. I volunteer at RI Parrot Rescue every Sunday where I am the wellness specialist. I also have a degree in Ecology which has taught me to be patient and observant. My lab shifts allow me to walk Monday and Tuesday. I can't wait to spend time with your dog!
