“Looking forward to walkin’ your Rover all over!”

I love dogs. I have spent 35 years teaching and coaching high school sports, it is time to retire and I am ready for a change of pace. I have rescued two dogs, one lived with me for 15 years and my current dog has been with me for 5 years. I enjoy exercising and training her. I enjoy the outdoors and I like to remain active. I understand the need to have someone who is reliable to take care of your pet when you cannot be there. I understand the needs of dogs, and enjoy their company.

“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.

“I can't walk dogs yet, but I can do drop ins”

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. I have a second job and usually am not available from 4PM to 11PM Mon-Fri

“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.

I love dogs and really all animals. I've owned dogs, lived with dogs, and dog sat in the past. I can't have dogs where I live now, so getting to walk them is wonderful! I have experience with small and large breeds and welcome the chance to play with any type.

Hi, my name is Maddie, and I am so happy to be walking for Wag. I currently own a Pit/Rottweiler/Boxer mix named Midori who is the gentlest dog you'll ever meet. I adopted Midori from a shelter in Tucson, AZ while I was in college. I've been dog sitting dozens of dogs of all breeds for family, friends, and neighbors for as long as I can remember. I am also an active volunteer for Stray Rescue, which is just blocks from my apartment in downtown St. Louis. I have so much fun with all the dogs I care for, and I can't wait to have fun with your dog too!

“Understanding, thorough, caring”

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 Mehlville

Mehlville invites a person and a pup to enjoy a river breeze and a few outdoor adventures. Mehlville may seem like wilderness, but there is always a convenience nearby.  There are three veterinary clinics in Mehlville so a dog does not have to go far to stay healthy. 

Mehlville also has two parks that are in or on the city boundary. Union Road County Park is a small green area that serves as a connection point to the 8-mile Grant’s Trail. This long paved trail takes a person and a pup westward, and further into the communities of St. Louis County. 

The other park on Mehlville’s  border is Jefferson Barracks Park. This St. Louis County park has 426 acres of parkland.Jefferson Barracks has picnic sites and three trails. The Mississippi River Greenway Trail will take you and your leashed pup on a 1.6-mile trek along the Mississippi River. Benches are positioned along the way.  A person and their furry companion can marvel at the river’s size and beauty.  

The other two trails are the South and North Schick trails. These are both a little over a mile long. The south trail includes a few exercise stations for you (but probably not your pup). Deer heavily populate this locale. No doubt a few will cross you and your leashed friend’s path.

Sunset Hills is seven miles west of Mehlville. Dogs yearn for a run off their leash, and Kitun Dog Park fulfills a pup's deepest needs. This one-acre, fully fenced piece of land gives dogs the chance to run and play with their own kind leash-free. The dog park has a separate fenced space for small dogs to run wild and free, too. The large dog section has a few pieces of agility equipment for a dog to ignore or take a challenge on.  The human companion may sit on benches on the sidelines of what may be a bit of frenzied fun. Nobody goes without drinking water here. Water fountains give upper and lower deck drinking for dogs and their people. This dog park requires registration with the city of Sunset Hills.

Arnold is eight miles south of Mehlville. Arnold's Paw Parks make for a perfect afternoon adventure. They are free and open to the public, unlike many of St. Louis County's dog parks. The two Paw Parks are identically designed, and are located at City Park and at Ferd B. Lang Park. The Paw Parks give the dogs an acre of grassy space to call their own! The small dogs have a separate area for safer play, too. Each Paw Park has water available for dogs and their people. Shaded benches make it easy for a dog's person to sit and supervise their pup as they play. Ample doggie bags help remind everyone to keep this public place clean.

A small, separate piece of the property makes the small dogs happy. This dog park has trees planted everywhere in it.  This little piece of pooch paradise includes water play in the summer months, with enough kiddie pools to get all those wagging tails wet. A natural creek flows across the property, which always tempts a pup for a wet paw or two. Human companions can take photos on their stroll around the park on the walking path. A temperament test is required before dogs can become members. This dog park charges a monthly fee for its use.

The Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis City is fourteen miles north of Mehlville.  St. Louis University owns the Ellen Clark Sculpture Park and Dog Park on Lindell Blvd. This space has gone to the dogs -- literally! The sculpture park attracted local dogs for a bit of running in a fully enclosed space. First came the dogs from the nearby apartments, and then others came from surrounding towns and areas. This lovely park seems to have become a dual-purpose space. A water fountain designed for pups to drink easily is found in the enclosure. All dogs visiting here will play in the same area; there is no separate area for small dogs.  The sculptures delight with their color and form on the natural green grass.
