    Hello, my name is Ross. I am a proud dog dad of two wonderful boys: a chihuahua mix (14 years old) and a dachshund mix (9 months old). I have been a dog owner for over twelve years. I volunteer with local animal shelters and have experience with dogs of all breeds and ages. I also have experience handling varying energy levels (puppies to seniors), as well as dogs with medical conditions that may require medications and extra care/patience. I am also a professional dog portrait photographer and would love to take some beautiful photos of your beloved fur-baby(ies)!

    Hi my name is Trudy. I am dependable. I have my own transportation with insurance. I work during the summer months then laid off Nov-Apr/May, so my availability opens up even more. I am available to stop by after work if needed and I’m available on weekends. I have two girls and an active household (never a dull moment). I am also a volunteer through a local rescue organization south of the cities. I have been involved with them for about 3yrs. After 5yrs w/o a dog, we became foster fails. YAY!

    “Your friendly and reliable dog walker!”

    Hi, my name is Rob and I cannot wait to meet your pup! I have been the primary caretaker for our family dogs since I was a teenager and walked and dog-sat friends' and neighbors' dogs throughout high school and college. I love getting to know the unique personality and quirks of each dog I get to meet. I am happy to take your dog on a more brisk walk or a slow stroll; whatever your dog prefers, I can accommodate. I cannot wait to get to know your companion and hope to make a new dog friend!

    I consider myself a pet professional! I’ve always had pets in the house since I was young - dogs, cats, fish, birds, even chinchillas! I have also always been the go-to dog walker and pet sitter in the neighborhood, and often care for my family’s fur relatives as well. Naturally, I was destined to build a career working with animals! I worked at a popular doggy daycare in Minneapolis for nearly four years before moving on to my current position as a veterinary assistant in Excelsior. I’ve been doing Wag walks and Wag sitting/boarding since the spring of 2018. I am a true dog lover and I can’t wait to meet your fur baby and give them the loving care they deserve!

    “Love all dogs!”

    I love all animals and always have! I have two older Jack Russell Terriers and have had them since puppies. They don’t need as much exercise as I do nowadays! I love being outdoors, and I will be donating my earnings. For each month, I pick a fundraiser to donate my earnings to. If you have anything close to your heart, let me know and I can consider that foundation I am a non-smoker.

    Hello, my name is Lucas and I am a 21-year-old college student who attends Anoka-Ramsey Community College. I have been around dogs my whole life, and my family has always owned one, and up to three dogs at a time. I have been the main walker of our dog/dogs for 7 or 8 years, so I have plenty of experience in walking. I also have some dog sitting experience, with dogs ranging from 10-20 lbs all the way up to 160-200 lb dogs! I can't wait to meet your furry friends and make sure they get the kind of quality walk that they deserve.

    I am looking for more friends to walk with along with find some cash to pay off student loans. I played a lot of sports, so if you have a high energy dog, you found a high energy guy that will make sure they get as much exercise as they desire! If you have not so energetic dogs, I know how to pace for the older fido's out there and I would love the opportunity to meet your buddy! I guess if you read nothing else, just know that I want to walk your dog.
