“happiness is four paws and a wagging tail”

Hi! My name is Regan. I'm a 22 year old animal lover from Allentown, PA and I attend graduate school in Westminster, MD. I have been walking dogs with Wag for almost 2 years now. Prior to college, I would pet sit a variety of animals, especially dogs, for families around my neighborhood. I love dogs and can't wait until I can raise one of my own after graduating. I am also a very active person so this job seemed like the perfect mix for me!

I have been a dog-owner (my border-collie, J.J.) and dog-sitter as a teenager for many personal and family friends in the Baltimore County area. After graduating college in 2013, I began a recurring dog-walk arrangement with an old roommate for both a recently rescued German Shepherd (Storm) and a Yorkie (Stella), and have been happily working as a professional dog-walker and sitter ever since. I love meeting new dogs and making them happy with walks, playing, running, feeding, and having fun!

My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion! Today I am a proud pet Mom to Wendy. The coolest dog on the block. She became cool because of me! As a dog walker extraordinaire I took the tools that I used with Wendy to enable ALL of my dogs to be the coolest! Before I walk them we have a routine that I call You Were born to SPARKLE! Your pet will get a mini massage, an exquisite healthy treat.We always drink some unfiltered H2O and use a sparkling dog leash. Your pets will have no responsibilities or cares in the world. Playing with tons of toys and sleeping on the comfiest beds and always walked on a designer leash that I have created and being pampered 24/7. Of course we all could get used to that! If you want your pet to be the coolest and trendiest dog on the block while being pampered you know who to cal. REDD, the fashionable dog walker on the block!

I've been an animal lover since I was a little girl. My first dog was a German Shepherd named Bingo, we were inseparable. I've always been a natural with animals. However, that never stopped me from expanding on my knowledge, my favorite topic being body language. When my friends and family need someone to watch their dogs I am the first they ask, because they know I will take excellent care of their loved ones.

Dog Walking in Westminster

Westminster has been a major city and county seat in Maryland for decades. The city was founded by William Winchester, an indentured servant from England, in 1764, after he fulfilled his service obligation and moved away from Annapolis. Today, the city of Westminster has increased in size from less than one square mile to more than 6 square miles. It is a thriving community with a rich history in agriculture. 

Westminster is 30 miles from Baltimore and 60 miles from Washington, D.C. There is plenty of family-friendly quality of life in Westminster with local parks, churches, schools, and plenty of jobs in both agricultural development and retail. Parts of the city are home to college students who attend one of the two institutions in the area. 

There are five dog-friendly chain restaurants in the area with outdoor patios and a variety of food options to curb any craving. There is also a local walking trail right in the town that is about 2 miles long and runs from Uniontown Road to Long Valley Road. Dogs are welcome on-leash. 

There are six animal hospitals in Westminster, making it easy to find great care for your pup if the need arises while you find yourself in this puptastic town.
