“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 Oakland

Oakland is a picturesque country club community sandwiched in between larger municipalities like Kirkwood and Webster Groves. Oakland has one veterinary hospital that operates around the clock for any emergency your pup may have.  

Oakland boasts three city parks:  Loewanau Park, Monaco Park, and Backstoppers Park. Leowanau Park is a small community green space for you and your leashed dog to explore. Oakland plans to add more amenities to this park in the near future. Monaco Park is located at Sappington Road and Lockwood Ave. Monaco Park has a small gazebo for a bit of rest and shade.

Backstoppers Park is a park dedicated to fallen police officers. It is the city’s largest park and offers a picnic site and a pavilion. Backstoppers Park connects to Grant’s Trail, a paved, 8-mile trail that cuts across the communities in south St. Louis County. Along Grant’s Trail are several spots to sit and rest. Water is provided in many places along the way (for dog and person). A small playground sits in Backstoppers, and nearby is the St. Louis County Library. 

A fourth park, Minturn Park, is also in the works (as of August 2017). Minturn will include some sculptured landscaping, plantings, and a loop walk for you and your leashed dog to get a scenic stroll.
