“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!

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.
