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 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!

“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.
