Proud animal lover and dog mom of two chihuahuas! I’ve walked all kinds of dogs with the Humane Society for two years, and I’ve taken two dog training and intelligence courses. I’m currently studying in Connecticut, but I am staying in my hometown- where I’ve grown up for most of my life- for the summer. I’ve just started working with Wag! but I am committed to providing the best possible service!

Hello furry friend moms and dads! I'm Brooke and I'm so excited for the opportunity to spend time with your fur babies. I've been a dog owner any whole life and really miss the companionship, forced activity and general love that comes with pet care. While I know I don't have the time/ space for a fur baby of my own right now, I would LOVE to be able to get outside more and make some fur friends nearby. I run the Portsmouth and Rye areas often so I am very familiar with all the little back streets and the quieter routes if that is what your pooch prefers. I am open to walking multiple dogs provided they are good on leash and I am okay with one at a time if they are still leash training. I have many years of experience in training dogs basic commands like sit, come, stay and heal. I'd be happy to work on leash etiquette with your dog while walking them! I look forward to meeting your furry friends, Brooke

Dog Walking in Wells

Welcome to the coastal town of Wells, Maine. You might think the city is named Wells because of all the water, but its actually named after "Father of Wells", a man who used a lot of well water in his mills. Because of this, the name was born, and 400 years later, the city is still booming and attracting people and their furry best friends. Today, Wells is a summertime destination for a lot of vacationers who fill the beaches and downtown area every year. Resident and visiting pups have ther choice of five veterinary clinics, with many more available in the surrounding areas.

Well's Beach can get pretty hectic during the summertime, but Wells still tries to include its four-legged residents! Dogs are allowed anytime in the off-season, but are only allowed on the beach between 6 and 8 PM between June 16th and September 15th. There are clean-up stations, trash bins, and benches located throughout the beach.

Wells Harbor Park is another popular destination for dog lovers, located right on the water and surrounded by marshland. Dogs must remain on a leash, but can enjoy the comforts of a water fountain, benches, the shade under the gazebo, and some paved walking paths.

There are plenty of other outdoor places to go, like the Wells Barren Preserve and Gregoire Campgrounds for camping adventures. With all these options and more, it will leave you and Fido going mutts for more!
