I work at a healthcare technology company. Unfortunately, my work schedule does not allow me to have my own dog, but I enjoy caring for animals and getting outside! Your dog will be in excellent hands during our walk. Each walk is an adventure, and I can powerwalk or go at a more leisurely pace; whatever your four-legged friend prefers!

“Dog's best friend, taking good care of each other.”

I've been a dog owner my whole life. I'm comfortable with big and small breeds. I connect well with dogs and they with me. I enjoy walking for health and fitness, walking a place is my way to connect with a place. I can work with trained dogs as well as dogs who are learning. I can help put the fun and reward in learning (dogs naturally love to please). I learned about Wag during a trip to New Zealand and it sounded like a nice way to connect with dog friends and put some miles under my shoes!
