“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!

“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.
