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.

Dog Walking in Wayzata

Wayzata is a city located on Lake Minnetonka, on the western edge of the St.Paul-Minneapolis metropolitan area. This area has consistently attracted tourists who come to enjoy its scenic lakes. Dog-friendly Wayzata has a lot more to offer residents and visitors, including one animal hospital ready for all your pup’s health care needs.

For some outdoor time with your pawtastic friend, head to Klapprich Park. Here you will find an off-leash dog park which is just the place for Fido to kick up his heels and romp with the boys! This park is only open in the summer, as it is used as a hockey ice rink in the winter months. Other features of Klapprich Park include numerous sports fields and dedicated picnic areas to enjoy lunch with your pup-tastic friend.  

Next, head to the Dakota Regional Rail Trail and the Luce Line State Trail, both running for miles throughout the city. These former railroad lines have been converted to paved trails stretching for more than 30 scenic miles, making for an epic walk with your pup.

Hungry? Bar Louie, in the next-door town of Minnetonka, offers 30 outdoor pet-friendly tables to enjoy their scratch dishes. 

Wayzata is the place to be with pup by your side!
