Hola, I'm Luis. I grew up in Mexico City owning a pack of dogs. An Alaskan Malamute named BUTLER then came DOUGLAS, a Siberian Husky, ZOCO a Sherman Shepherd, a toy pooch MINI the Maltese and finally, my over social MOCHA, an stupendous female Boxer that I brought to America. She was the reason that kept me fit and put me in contact with other dog owners for the last 2 decades. She Made me realized the importance and difference of being a Dog Lover vs a Dog Parent. I will be treating your dogs with the same love and care resulting in a positive WAG experience. Happy dogs make happy owners.

“I can't wait to meet your fur-baby!!”

Hi my name is Donald. I grew up with dogs and absolutely love them! I don't have any dogs of my own currently so spending time with the furry friends on Wag really brightens my day! I'm also a certified personal trainer who loves to stay active and give both people and doggies alike the exercise that they need to stay happy and healthy! I will always jog/run as long as your dog wants to and it is safe (not too hot outside.)
