Hi, I'm Jeb! I grew up in Cloquet, Minnesota with two Doberman Pinschers named Attila and Odin. I currently have an adorable 3 year old Morkie named Poco. I started caring for neighborhood dogs over 10 years ago, but have been a dog lover all my life! I have cared for dogs of all shapes and sizes, from toy breeds like Morkies and Chihuahuas to large breeds like Saint Bernards and Bullmastiffs. I love meeting new dogs and making sure each and every dog I encounter has everything it needs to be happy and healthy! I'm a very active individual and would love to provide your dog with the exercise it needs to remain healthy, fit, and most importantly, happy. I will treat your dog as my own and make sure your Wag! experience is the best it can be!

Just moved to the Duluth area! I am so excited to walk your dog! I've been around dogs and cared for them my entire life. I can't get enough of them. I'm always asking strangers if I can pet their dogs, so finding people who actually need my help is fantastic!

*Canine CPR certified* I've had experience caring for dogs since I was a little kiddo chasing my Chesapeake Bay Retriever around the backyard. I've always had a special connection with animals, and I love getting to spend time with a variety of dog breeds. I am very patient with dogs and they tend to trust me quickly because of that. Each dog is different, and I change my affect, energy level and activity level to meet their specific needs. I have taken care of many different breeds, from labs and goldens, to springer spaniels and small terriers! I have an Airedale name Brantley, and he is my best bud! Looking forward to meeting your fur-babies next!

Dog Walking in Duluth

Duluth is the fourth-largest city in Minnesota home to beautifully preserved historic sites, cultural attractions, and breathtaking vistas of Lake Superior. It's also pretty doggone Fido-friendly! A handful of veterinarians keep Duluth's doggos in happy and healthy, and the big-box pet stores in town carry all the supplies you need to pamper your pal.

Over a dozen restaurants in Duluth welcome doggy diners at their outdoor patios.  Whether you and your hound have a hankering for Mexican, Italian, or good old-fashioned American cuisine, you're sure to find something to please your pup's palate here. Some of the city's taverns also host a fun "Yappy Hour" in which canine customers receive treats on the house! After your dinner date, leash up and head out to one of the city's four off-leash areas. Just be sure to bring plenty of water and waste baggies.

Before you start planning your Fido-friendly stint in the City on the Hill, there are a few things you should know. According to city law, dogs must be leashed in all public spaces — no exceptions. Break this rule and you could face a $200 fine! Out-of-towners hoping to meet some new canine compadres at Duluth's dog parks must bring proof of current rabies vaccination. (Duluth residents must also provide their dog's city registration tag.)

Now that you know the rules, leash up, head out, and start exploring the dog-friendly attractions in Duluth! If you're venturing to a place that prohibits pups, don't leave your doggo home alone. Book a professional dog walker in Duluth through the Wag! Walking app and rest easy knowing your pup is in good paws!
