“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, Maryland is a beautiful city with the look of old England. It's lush forest surroundings and devotion to animals makes this a fantastic city to experience for pet owners.

One of the first outdoor places that your pet will enjoy is the Bennett Cerf Dog Park. This fantastic park does require a membership, which may not make it ideal for people just passing through, but residents can't miss out on this lovely park. It is a large fenced area so your pet can run off-lead to his heart's content. There are surrounding trails to walk on and catch some sniffs as well. Every third Tuesday is a group meeting for park members to let their pets play and walk together.

Another fun location is the Hashawha Environmental Center. Not only are dogs allowed here, but they have specialized trails for equestrian riders. Based on records, there are over 5 miles of trails to explore and views of lakes, streams, and dense meadows and forests. An exciting nature experience for humans and pets alike!

If you are just passing through Westminster and need a place to stay, check into the Best Western Catering and Conference Center. This clean, classic hotel will welcome you and your pet happily. They welcome dogs, cats, birds, and more! The hotel is in a great, convenient location, so you are close to everything in the city.

When it's time to eat, French Twist Coffee and Crepes offers tasty bakery treats. Your pet is welcome to join you at their outside seating while you enjoy some hot coffee or a luscious crepe.

Westminster is a very pet-friendly city and is not to be missed by any pet owner!

Bennett Cerf Dog Park, housed in Random House Park, is a great off-leash park hosted in the very heart of Westminster. This park features separate runs for large and small dogs, which allows small dogs a place where they won’t be overwhelmed, and big dogs won’t get themselves into trouble playing too roughly. The park has shade, benches, and water for worn out pooches. Once your dog has worked off some energy you can leash up and head into Random House Park to walk by the pond or enjoy the trails together.

Cranberry Park in Hillside is actually close to the border with City Center. However, the sheer size of the park makes it an attractive commute from all parts of Westminster. This multi-use park is large for the more densely populated neighborhood it serves. A variety of activities and people use the park daily, with dogs being just one of the demographics the park aims to serve. Dogs must be leashed in the park, but have full use of trails and grassy areas. Cranberry Park’s pond can be a fun destination for dogs to cool off.

Union Mills is home to Hashawa Environmental Center. This 380 acre park brings the relaxation and hiking trails of one of the state parks into Westminster. The land is largely left natural, with many walking and hiking trails turning each trip into a medley of options. Dogs must be leashed in the park, but with miles of walking trails, there’s still plenty of room to walk, hike, or jog. Every dog can stretch their legs and expect to get home tired, relaxed, and ready to snooze at the foot of the bed.

The Morgan Run Natural Environment Area is located in Eldersburg, only 20 minutes south from the City Center neighborhood in Westminster. This sprawling, 2,000 acre natural space is every dog’s dream. The only catch is that your pup must remain on leash unless taking advantage of one of the area’s many water features. Leashed activities in the area include walking, hiking, and picnicking in one of the many rest areas around the park. The presence of fellow hikers, runners, fishermen, seasonal hunters (in outer areas) and equestrians ensure that it’s never a dull day at Morgan Run.

Westminster thrives on commutability. For pups who have grown familiar with Westminster parks, Prettyboy Reservoir Park is only a 20 minute commute away in Hamstead. Aside from being a great complement your pup is used to receiving, Prettyboy is a great space for inquisitive dogs. Wildlife and preserved nature combine to make the area beautiful and of interest to a dog’s sharp senses. Your dog must be leashed while on trails and entering/exiting the park. However, if your dog loves water, you can slip off the leash and let him enjoy it.
