“Full time. Any dog. Any weather. Extended hours :)”

Dog walking is my life! I can read dogs very well and quickly gain their trust and obedience. I’m great with high energy dogs, stubborn dogs, dogs that pull, dogs that snap, escape artists, dogs with dominance issues, dogs with triggers, handling multiple dogs at once and any other scenario concerning safety. I’m gentle, affectionate, attentive, protective, and caring and will provide the perfect experience no matter your dog’s size, breed, or temperament. Thanks for choosing me as your walker!

Hello, my name is Alexander Klein, and I LOVE ANIMALS! I have had animals- mainly dogs- for my entire life, and I love and respect them. I am a college graduate with a Bachelor's of Science in Information Technology concentrating on Security. I am working at Wag! not because it is my field of training but because it is my passion- although that is not to say that I am not knowledgeable about dogs and other animals. The first dog I got to call my very own brother was given to me after my parent's dogs passed away. That dog, named Knight, was my absolute best friend and brother, and I cared for him for 15 years- his entire life.

Located in Montgomery County, Maryland, Germantown is a small town situated approximately 25 miles outside of Washington, D.C. An important part of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Germantown was founded in the early 19thcentury and has experienced rapid economic growth since the early 1980s. This thriving suburb is popular among young to middle-aged adults, and with five veterinarians in the immediate vicinity, it’s also a great place for pet parents.

Bordering much of Germantown’s east side, Great Seneca Stream Valley Park is the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life with your canine companion. This wooded park features several walking paths and trails, and it is the perfect destination for a day hike. There is a beautiful stream where your dog can take a dip, as well as picnic areas where you can enjoy lunch.

If you’d rather enjoy a tasty meal out, check out Agrodolce. This local favorite serves up incredible wood-oven pizza and welcomes dogs at their outdoor tables. If your pup is thirsty, they will even deliver a bowl of water.

No matter how you and your pup would like to spend your day, exciting adventures await in the Germantown, Maryland area!
