Growing up, there was always a dog in my house- if not a small pack! I have years of personal experience with puppies, seniors, extra large breeds, tiny breeds, and everything in between. I truly do not have a preference, nor aversion, towards any breed, age, or activity level. Beyond my personal experience, I also have previous job experience with pet sitting and walking dogs while their owners have been away for days/weeks at a time.

Hi, my name is Stacey. I recently adopted a cute pit lab mix and love her A LOT. We love to go on long walks, hikes, play and go to dog parks - all things I hope to do with your dog (if you feel comfortable allowing those). If you just want your dog to play in your house or yard, we can do that too!

Hi, my name is Kimie! To start off getting to know me, all I can say I truly believe in doing what you love. The past 6 years have been amazing due to working in Aquatics and fitness. Whether I’m teaching big/little people to swim or dedicating time early in the morning to the gym overall the key is, do I love what I’m doing? Well yes! Yes I am, but not as happy as when I’m home with my two rescue pups. Having and being around fur babies has just been apart of my day to day and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m a firm believer in positive reinforcement and praise. If I sound like a good fit for your pooch, please feel free to reach out! I’d love to meet you both!!!

Hi, I’m Haley! I grew up with five dogs and I’ve been an animal rescuer since I was a child! I volunteered at an animal shelter and at adopt and rescue events while in high school so that I could give unfortunate animals as much love and affection as I could! When volunteering, I got to walk dogs and find forever homes for them! I have been pet sitting and dog walking for 3 years now for family, friends and for my community. I have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages, from a four week old lab,an 18yr old poodle, and from caring for Chihuahuas to Great Danes! I love meeting new furry friends and catering to each individual’s needs, as I know that every dog is unique and has their own quirks, hobbies, habits, and special needs. I have experience with oral medication as well as caring for senior dogs and diabetic dogs. I love to exercise and stay healthy and I’d love to keep your pet healthy, fit and ultra happy! I will treat your furry children with love and compassion and I’ll strive to make your Wag! experience as fun and exciting as possible!
