“More than a walk - Extra Photos & Play/spoil time”

My volunteer time in vet clinics, providing many years off care to my, family & friends’ fur babies, has me well equipped to provide the level of care your bark & purr family members deserve. During my years with Wag, I’ve strived to make sure dogs get attention &/or play time before & after their walks. When doing boardings, sittings & walks, there will be plenty of photo updates, detailed reports of care and grooming/training (as needed/requested). Your baby’ll surely get lots of love from me!

“Big or small, I love them all!”

I started my career with animal care in 2009, when moved from VA to NC to join the vet tech program at Gaston College. Currently I work, as needed, at a busy animal emergency hospital in Charlotte. I'm available full time and am fully capable of caring for your pets during your absence. Whether the absence is an afternoon walk, or a weekend getaway I will follow any instructions you leave regarding the care of your pets. I look forward to meeting the extra additions in your household.

“Video updates & detailed report cards every walk!”

Hi, I’m Danielle and I’m a dog lover! When my english bulldog Lexi needed physical therapy due to old age, I did everything I could to keep her healthy during the last few months of her life. After her passing I realized that I absolutely love taking care of dogs, and had to find a way to pursue that. Now I've been a dog walker and pet sitter for the past 5 years, and want to give your dog the happiness I've given to so many others! Can't wait to meet and take care of your pup!

Hi, my name is Justine. I am a certified dog trainer since early 2013. For 2.5 years I worked at a boarding, training and daycare facility. I've worked with all types of breeds and sizes, from teacup chihuahuas to 150lb great danes. I love all dogs and their multitudes of personalities; they're super fun to watch and play with. At work, I was the one who worked most strongly and connected with dogs who suffered from anxieties, but I love being around all dogs, regardless. I own two dogs, a pitbull mix and a coonhound/lab mix. They are both abuse rescues. I'd love to meet your dog and spend time with them! Daily exercise is very important, and a tired dog is a happy dog.

Being close to Charlotte has its perks. One of the best parks in Charlotte is the Fetching Meadow Park, which is a one-acre off-leash park. The park is properly fenced and is located around 20 miles away from Harrisburg. The park is located in the McAlpine Creek Park in Charlotte's East Forest neighborhood. Unfortunately, the park doesn't include separate areas for small and large dogs, so if your dog is shy and timid, this might not be the best place for you to visit. The park has plenty of room to run, but it's not so big that you can't keep a close eye on your fur baby while you relax at one of many of the shaded benches.
