I’ve grown up with dogs my entire life! I love everything about them, including making sure they are happy and healthy. Safety is always my primary concern since while I have the pleasure of walking someone’s dog, for a brief moment, they become mine too! Let me help you care for your furry family member.

I am currently the pet mom of a large labrador and a border collie. I am a very active runner/biker and would enjoy short or long walks with your pet! Like all pet owners, I hate leaving my dogs when I go to work. I have a very flexible work schedule which allows me to take longer lunches at various times during the day. I would love to help other pet owners feel good knowing that their dog got to have a fun afternoon while they were gone.

“Animals ARE my business”

Hi! My name is Debbie! I’m a certified Vet tech for 22 years now! I have worked with animal shelters and rescue groups all my adult life, it’s a huge part of who I am and a passion of mine to find forever homes for all animals who might need one. I love being a Wag! walker because I know the importance of finding someone you can trust to love and take care of your dog (when you can’t) the same way you would and I absolutely love providing that service to people. It’s just what I do!

Hello! I have been a pet owner all my life, ranging from goldfish to lizards to cats and of course, dogs! I have a dog of my own that I have raised since I was a pup, but always look forward to meeting new dogs to spend time with. I work full time at Duke Hospital but typically have 3-4 days off a week which gives me plenty of time to walk dogs when other people may not be available. I hope that joining Wag will allow me to push two passions together, spending time with dogs and always remaining very active! I am looking forward to meeting your pup!
