“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.

“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 Hillsdale

Hillsdale, MO combines the charms of a small town with the conveniences of living near a major city. Hillsdale is on the outskirts of St. Louis, a thriving community that provides everything a person (or a puppy) could want that aren’t within Hillsdale’s borders. Though Hillsdale technically has no veterinarians, the closest St. Louis office is ten minutes away, making it faster to get there from Hillsdale than most other parts of St. Louis! Your pup doesn’t need to fear a hangnail in Hillsdale.


With just over one-thousand residents, Hillsdale has seen a lot for being a small place. Over the years, the suburbs and urbs have expanded around this small community, replacing rural oaks with residential housing. If you’re up for a walkable piece of history, consider touring the outside of Greenwood Cemetery. Not everyone thinks cemeteries make for good viewing, but this one was the first non-sectarian cemetery for African-Americans in the St. Louis area. Dogs aren’t allowed inside the historic area, but the cemetery spans several blocks in Hillsdale, making this walk a great stroll for getting in a dog’s daily dose of exercise.


Hillsdale, MO holds a tiny piece of history of the area. Residential neighborhoods and the proximity to all that the St. Louis area has to offer makes Hillsdale a tail wagging place to go.

The Ellen Clark Sculpture Park and Dog Park in nearby St. Louis is five minutes out of Hillsdale and the perfect dog park to bring Fido to. The park is mainly for large dogs since the fence is not small dog friendly, but there is a lot of room to run around and your dog will love that. Locals warn that some mud spots do pop up occasionally which can cause a mess if your pup loves to play in the dirt. Make sure to bring water for you dog as there isn’t any provided, and there is also a lack of shade.
