“4.96 Star Rated - Top Walker - Thank You!”

Hello, I am Cindy and I love dogs. All kinds of dogs. I am retired and decided I want to walk other peoples dogs since both my lovers died this year of old age. I miss having a dog around very much but want to do some travelling right now. I would love the chance to spoil your dogs rotten just like I used to do mine. For the past 6 years, I have spent many hours a day helping shelter dogs get relocated out of Kentucky (where the animal protection laws are the worst in the nation).

“I love animals and I can't wait to meet your pet!”

Hi, I'm Kenzie! To me, pets count as additional family members. I have lived with cats and dogs for my entire life. I'm familiar with all sizes and breeds. I've worked with many families for years, house- and pet-sitting and then I started walking for Wag in March of 2018. I love getting to know the pets I work with, because I think that each and every animal has their own quirks and personality. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I can't wait to do the same with your furry friend!

Dog Walking in Riverside

Riverside is a modestly sized city with some lively energy, located in Platte County, Missouri. Just as the name suggests, this puptown boasts a beautiful location on the edge of the Missouri River. If you are bringing your pooch with you to visit Riverside, there is one animal hospital in the city. But, you will find plenty of other places for emergency care not far away in Kansas City.

For a pawsome day out with your furry companion, head over to the Renner Brenner Park. This community park has plenty of green grass for your pup to enjoy, as well as a playground and skateboard park for the kids. This park also connects to the Line Creek Trail, which is a puptastic place to take your pooch to stretch their legs and enjoy some exercise. This trail is beautiful and makes a great retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life in Riverside. There are over eight miles of sniff-tastic trails to explore, which goes through wooded areas and takes you some real pawsome places, such as past a small waterfall. Be sure to pack some water and treats for you and your panting pup, as it can get quite hilly!

Known as a local gem, the EH Young Riverfront Park is a beautiful spot for taking a relaxing stroll with your pup! While this is often where events are held in Riverside, there is also plenty of green grass where your furry friend will love to investigate, roll and run.

If you need a place to stay in Riverside with your pooch, check out the Super 8. Here you can bring two dogs weighing less than 25 Ibs for a small additional fee.

To check out some dog friendly eateries near Riverside, head north for 3.5 miles to Kansas City. The Hills of Walden neighborhood has some pawsome places to dine, such as SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza. Here you can enjoy some specialty pizzas and delicious Italian food, and bring your pup to one of the outdoor tables to sit with you. Since there isn’t table service here, be sure that someone can watch your pup as you order. If you are looking for a morning pick-me-up, check out Caribou Coffee. This is the place to go for coffee and lattes, as well as a tasty treat. Of course, your furry friend can join you and have a nap at one of the outdoor tables!
