“Strong, compassionate walker”

My name is Sarah. I'm a young professional with a profound love of dogs. I've been dog sitting for friends, coworkers, and people in the St Louis area for about 3 years now, and I volunteer at a local animal shelter as a dog walker. I’ve met some truly amazing dogs during that time and I look forward to meeting yours.

Hi, I'm Jim. I grew up with dogs and have always enjoyed their company. I understand that my clients consider their pets as family. Each dog has it's own personality and I love spending time with them. I could also use the exercise. I've volunteered at animal shelters and haven't met a doggo I didn't like.

“A walk is always better with a fur baby or 2 or 3.”

I have always had a dog in my life. I love taking the 2 I have for walks but I also like to get extra walking time in for my own exercise and it is always more fun to have a fur baby with you on the adventure.

“Fur babies are the best!!”

I love animals and have always been around them. I grew up around dogs, cats, snakes, horses and small pets. I currently have a spoiled 8 1/2 year old pitbull named Rio that I have raised from a puppy and I also have a 1 1/2 year old Rottweiler named Loki that I also raised from a puppy. I love to take my dogs for rides in the car, hiking trails, and enjoying being lazy and snuggling on the couch.My dogs are part of the family. Dogs are a true best friend.

“Less like dog whisperer, more like genuine spirit!”

I was the sole caretaker with my huge Golden Retriever, Oliver, walking him every day, working on training, and even wrangling him in the bathtub! Now that I have my own thriving doggy business since Jan 2019, my besties and I are never bored again! Days I'm available, I'd absolutely cherish time with yours! I feel so blessed that dogs of all breeds and sizes feel immediately comfortable in my presence, and out of the 500+ walks I've taken for Wag, only 1 time was I unable to gain a pup's trust!

“Understanding”

I have always loved animals. I do not have a favorite pet. I actually found the love of animals from bringing in strays as a child and going through various training for Veterinary Ass/Tech positions. I really can't wait to provide an essential need for your pet. I have my own critters so I understand how important their care is to an owner/ pet parent.

Dog Walking in Des Peres

Des Peres is located off of a major interstate highway. It is also the site of a thriving mall, West County Mall. There is one veterinary clinic in Des Peres, which provides dogs with routine and emergency medical care, and also offers grooming services.

Des Peres has six city parks. The Des Peres Park has 40 acres of recreational space for area residents. It includes a stocked fishing pond, playgrounds, and several picnic sites and pavilions to rent, and a one-mile walking path. Leashed dogs are welcome to exercise here with their people.

Another trail connects two other city parks, Bittersweet and Phantom Forest. These parks encompass ten and thirteen acres respectively. Pioneer Park has a .29-mile walking trail. Sugar Creek Park has a nature area and walking trail. All these parks offer some open green spaces for a leashed dog and person to explore together. They are favorite spots for area residents to spend weekend afternoons. All have playgrounds for kids, and the Des Peres Park is close to the mall as well as lots of different drive-through restaurants. A lunch in the park with your favorite pal, and a walk around the fishing pond makes for some good moments with a furry best friend.
