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! My name is Juliann and I love dogs! I grew up having a Weimaraner named Maxy, and after she crossed the rainbow bridge, we got another Weim puppy named Cleo. She left us in 2014. I still miss them both and am always looking for opportunities to spend time with dogs as I cannot own my own at the moment. Aside from growing up with dogs, my experience includes spending the last 2 years volunteering at my local animal shelter where I walked, bathed, and socialized dogs on a weekly basis. And then there's all the times I've walked and dog sat for friends and neighbors..always a joy :)

Hi, my name is Jordan. First of all, I love dogs! I have been walking dogs on a regular basis since 2009. This includes walking my neighbor's dogs. I also acted as a long term dog sitter for an elderly woman who had to move into a home. I literally moved in and took care of her dog and her home full time! They had to sell the home and asked me to adopt the dog (Barkis) which I was thrilled to do and we are best buddies :)
