“I want to meet another 4 legged friend!”

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! 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'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.

Dog Walking in Oakdale

With the streets lined with tall oak trees, it's no wonder the city of Oakdale was named after the trees that populate the area. Although the area is the 32nd largest city in the state, and the most populous city with the name Oakdale, it still provides lovely hometown charm and atmosphere. The close-knit community has always had a love for man's best friends, and continues to today  with the incorporation of a dog-friendly community, walkable downtown, and lots of parks.

The best place to bring your pup is the Oakdale BARK Park thanks to its large natural area that's completely fenced-in for off-leash play. The terrain is a mixture of thick vegetation, open fields, and a dirt path. Dogs can enjoy a large dog area or a small dog area if they are under 30 pounds, with access to features like water fountains, double-gated entrances, clean-up stations, and trash bins.

If you're looking for a serene and quiet place to take Fido, it's best that you walk on over to the Oakdale Nature Preserve. The preserve has over 220 acres of land, with beautiful natural areas and recreational fields. Leashed pups can travel through nature trails, boardwalks, and paved walkways that surround MudLake and connect back to features like a Basketball Court, picnic shelters with grills, a playground, tennis courts, benches, water fountains, and trash bins.

You and Fido will have plenty of other places to play to, like the Oakwood Lustre Park, Goodwin Park, and Oakfield Park. Wherever you decide to do, Oakdale will provide lots of room for you and your pup, including seven veterinarians.
