I have been walking my friends dogs daily for a few years. I have some extra time in the summer (I am a teacher), so I thought I would expand this to other dogs in the metro area. I am honest, responsible, and trustworthy. I promise to treat your dog as if he/she is my own.

“I'll probably give your pooch a sweet nickname.”

The world has changed quite a bit this year and our constant source of happiness has been our pets. For everyone's safety, I'll wear a mask and have freshly sanitized hands before handling any fur babies. I've loved working with Wag! for over a year and have met so many pooches. It's a guarantee they will get extra scratches and treats (if allowed). My eyes will always be looking out for your pups. I can't wait to meet and care for more tail-waggers.

Hello! My name is Ashley and I'm currently finishing my Masters at the University of Minnesota to become a mental health therapist and chemical dependency counselor. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my four guinea pigs and going on walks around our gorgeous city!

Hello, my name is Joseph Orosz. I am 25 years old and I am an absolute dog-lover. I walked dogs for a company in Chicago for the past seven months and I look forward to continuing that here in Saint Paul. I believe that dogs are without a doubt humans best friends, and they should be treated as such. Love, warmth, understanding and patience are the qualities I will bring with me to each walk, and I will get to know each one as I go along. I look forward to meeting all sorts of new and wonderful pups!

Hi, I’m Alison and I’m excited to meet your furry friends! I’m a college student and have a six year old dachshund mix, Raphaella whom I adopted from Greece. I started professional dog walking in February 2018, but I have years of pet owning experience as well as being a dog sitter. In 2013 I spent two months in Santorini Greece volunteering at a dog and equine shelter socializing dogs, teaching dogs basic commands, and familiarizing dogs with walking on a lead. My experience has put me in contact with dogs of all breeds, sizes, and personalities. I’m looking forward to getting to know your pup!

Dog Walking in Forest Lake

Forest Lake is in Washington County and was once known as a major summer resort area for the upper Midwest in the early 1900s. Forest Lake loves their dog community, and offers four veterinarians that your furry friend can visit for a health checkup.

If Fido wants to go outside and explore, take him to one of the great parks that Forest Lake has to offer. Bay Park is a simple park that offers a lot of open green space that is perfect for a game of fetch, and a walking trail around it for alovely stroll. If you’re looking for a park that has more amenities, then head over to Preserve Park. This space is under an acre, and offers open green space, picnic tables, and play equipment.

Forest Lake is perfect if you and Fido are both foodies and want to grab some tasty food together. Don Julio’s Mexican Restaurant is a perfect spot to get your grub on with your furry friend by your side. Julio’s Mexican Restaurant serves authentic Mexican food with distinctive taste that originates from Jalisco. Their outdoor patio is dog friendly and welcomes your dog to join you while you enjoy a tasty meal.

Rice Creek North Regional Park in Hugo is only eight miles out of Forest Lake, and a great spot to take Fido for a great day out. Fido won’t mind the car ride since this park has great amenities, like walking trails and a pond to splash in. While visiting the park, your dog needs to stay on leash. The park offers tons of sand for your dog to dig around in and picnic tables for you sit and watch him have fun. The trails are covered by trees to keep you and your furry friend shaded as you hike, and if you need to cool down, you both can hop in the pond that is in the middle of the park.

The Sunrise Prairie Trial is 4-miles out of Forest Lake in nearby Wyoming. The trail is 16.2-miles long, covered with asphalt, and travels through forests and wetland areas with an abundance of wildlife that Fido will love to see. The trail also offers restrooms and water for both dog owners and doggies. If you and your pup want to continue your hike, the Sunrise Prairie trail connects to the Hardwood Creek Regional Trail. Both trails are relatively unused, so Fido won’t have to worry about too many people bothering him. Be sure your pup stays on leash while you both enjoy the trail together.
