“9/10 dogs think my jokes are hilarious.”

Hey there! My name is Adam. I am a 32 year-old cancer warrior, teacher, author, and dog-lover-extraordinaire. I've raised dogs most of my life and they've all turned out fairly well. Most are off to college now and I'm missing them dearly. Thus, I am here looking for new canine-friends. I am an avid cyclist, runner and thoroughly love long walks/talks with pups. Hopefully your pup and I can bond over politics and 30-60 minute jaunt!

“Full-time pet caretaker (& pet lover & cuddler)”

Hello, I’m Kelsey! I have always been a MAJOR dog lover. When I was really young, I used to wish for a pet puppy each year as I blew out my birthday candles. My wish came true in 2003 with a rescued papillon mix, and since then I have owned three wonderful dogs. In 2010, I started walking and "dog-sat" for a variety of breeds- everything from chihuahuas and dachshunds to pit bulls and boxers! I cannot wait to meet your fur-baby and give them all the exercise and attention that they need!

Hello friends. I grew up with many different canine companions & have adopted from local shelters over the years. I started working with a dog sitting/walking company at 16 and stayed 5+ years before relocating. I have experience with dogs of all sizes, breeds and ages. I adore meeting new pups and catering to each one’s needs, as I know each is unique and has their own personality. I’d love the opportunity to help keep your pet healthy, safe and above all, happy!

“Let’s pack snacks and make tracks!”

I’ve always loved dogs! I’ve had a lot of experience with learning to train my personal dogs. I volunteered at a local shelter in my city, and I often foster dogs as well. I had to give emergency birth to two liters of puppies for an elderly neighbor and after the second one I paid to have her dog altered. My three boys are my life. They are the most perfect fur babies I could have been paired with! I can’t wait to me YOUR furmily! I have been away from Wag! for a long time, but I’m back!
