I've always been an animal lover and cared for them all my life. I'm currently a fur mom to two rescues: a calico, Sophie, and Treeing Tennessee Brindle, Gaia. Both of my pets really enjoy the outdoors so you'll see us often in my backyard or local dog park. I'm always excited to meet new pets and treat them with love as if they were my own!

Hey my name is Carmine! I’m currently looking for a full time engineering job and I figured it would be great to do Wag in the meantime . My dog Millie is almost 8 years old and she’s the sweetest thing ever. She’s some a Jack Russel/Italian Greyhound Mix and while she’s one of the greatest things I’ve got going right now she doesn’t love to walk all that much. So I’d like to brighten up my days by meeting some new dogs and getting some light exercise.

My name is Carol and I grew up in a house full of dogs. There were more dogs in our house than kids, and there were 4 of us. My parents were dog trainers, and their dogs, Viszla, were trained in obedience, show and field trials. While I never participated in shows I accompanied my family to all events and assisted handling the dogs. After I was on my own I used all the techniques I learned at home with my dogs. Using positive reinforcement I was able to enjoy a pack of three dogs ranging from 6 pounds to 96 pounds. They were a well behaved group in and around the kitchen and out on a neighborhood walk. I always made sure they knew that I was in charge, and in exchange we enjoyed many happy hours together.

Hi! I recently relocated to Ann Arbor from Chicago and I truly miss my puppers from home. While I've never owned a dog myself, I grew up with two of them, and I love everything about dogs. I decided to sign up for wag because I thought it would be an awesome way to get some puppy love and take care of pups with busy owners.

Hi there! My name is Jenna! I'm originally from Michigan and I LOVE DOGS, hence why I'm on here. I grew up with dogs (Chocolate Lab, Boxer and Labradoodle) through out my life and pet (almost) EVERY dog I see. I would go ahead and get one myself but because being in my mid-twenties and still mobile I don't see it being so practical. Although, I would love to treat yours as my own, if only for an hour. To be honest I can go on and on about my love of animals! Anyways, I'm looking forward to meeting you and your pooch!
