I don't remember a time in my life when I haven't had a dog! My experience ranges from having dogs on a farm to my current urban life with my 13 year old boxer lab mix. I love to explore Minneapolis with an enthusiastic 4 legged friend!

Hi! I'm Sarah. I absolutely love dogs and love spending time exercising outdoors, so the opportunity to take your pup for a walk is a win-win! Most of my experience with dogs comes from the rescue dogs that I foster. I've had the privilege to work with a wonderful local rescue for the past year, and have helped five sweeties find their forever homes. Friends and family have always regarded me as their go-to person for dog and pet sitting, and I'm very grateful for all the fantastic dogs I've been able to care for over the years.

I have never met a dog I didn't want to play with! Always willing and ready to go for long walks with a pup. I had a Great Pyrenees for 14 years growing up and she unfortunately just passed so I'm missing seeing a dog everyday! I played basketball at northeastern here in Boston so running around and playing fetch is not gonna be a problem at all.

“I look forward to walking your dog!”

Hi! My name is Kate. With the COVID-19 shutdowns this is my only way of income and I appreciate any and all walks. I joined Wag to be able to spend more time with pups and because it’s a great side job. I’m very responsible and patient with animals but also love to spoil them. I have walked dogs before and am excited to be able to schedule on my own with owners, I can’t wait to meet and walk your dog!

Hi, my name is Alissa, and I would love to walk your dog! I am a lifelong dog-lover. I grew up with several fluffy samoyeds in the house, and these pets were a central part of my family. I enjoy dogs so much I walked my neighbors dogs after school, and helped dog-sit for families in my town as well. I currently have 3 geriatric cats, and my husband and I decided to allow these cats to live their full lives before adding a dog to the mix. In the meantime, I miss having dogs in my life and would be so happy to give your special dog my love and attention.

Dog Walking in Lake Elmo

Lake Elmo, Minnesota is a great place to go if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Most of the land in this city is used for farming, which gives it more of a country or rural atmosphere. This makes it a nice place to relax and enjoy nature.

Your canine friend will enjoy this city as much as you do! You won't want to miss the Lake Elmo Park Reserve during your visit. This reserve is full of wildlife and acres of beautiful scenery. Only a portion of the park is nature reserve, and the rest has been restored to its all-natural state. Your pooch is allowed to accompany you here as long as they stay on their leash. There are several trails that stretch throughout the park, which provide gorgeous views of the surrounding landscape.

Want to have some fun with Fido? This city is known for its many dog-friendly and dog-centric events, so be sure to check online for events happening during your visit. And don't worry about resting your weary heads; there are a few Fido-friendly hotels in this city that will welcome your pup with a smile.

This neighborhood is located about 11 miles from Lake Elmo, and is a great place for you and your pooch to bond. If your pooch likes water, then this is the perfect spot for a day of splashing and frolicking in the surf. The White Bear Dog Beach located here is happy to welcome your pooch, but your pal can't go on the public side of the beach. Your canine companion will love the sand under his paws! The water is shallow enough that your pup can wade in it or swim. You will need to keep an eye out for rocks, as some of the access to the water can be a little rocky.  There are no waste bags provided, so you will need to bring your own. Since this is a beach, there isn't any shade here, so you will want to bring an umbrella and water for both you and your pooch. This is a great place to have a fun day in the sun!
