“Experienced and reliable”

Hello everyone! I'm Madison, a recent UNC grad who currently works in tech. I enjoy walking with Wag! because it gives me a way to fill the dog-shaped hole in my heart while I wait to own a pup of my own, and also because it's helping me to save money for a house! When I'm not working or walking dogs, I enjoy spending time with my two childhood pups, Copper and Kinsley.

I have spent the past 20+ years in an office and now I get to be outside that window walking our best friends rain or shine. I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin where I learned to take care of many kinds of animals but I saw first hand how smart and caring dogs are and will never forget our hero. Skipper our little Boston Terrier followed Joe our large Shepard/Lab mix all over the farm and one day right into a creek he couldn't get out of. Joe ran home barking out of control and lead me back to saved his little buddy from drowning. Since then Tyson our fluffy white Samoyed and I passed our training classes and he learned to walk beside me instead of pulling me like I was a sled. I also have two Gran dogs, Reeses a Springer Spaniel who searches the whole house until he finds me when he visits and Simba a Golden Retriever who I just taught how to high-five. Dogs are amazing animals that deserve all the love back they give so unconditionally!

I am an experienced, enthusiastic, and energetic dog sitter and walker. I’ve worked with pups ranging from timid toy poodles to hyperactive pit bulls, and I love getting to know each dog as a unique individual with their own needs and preferences. I am up for long, athletic walks to tucker out your furry friend, but I am just as glad to take your baby on a leisurely stroll around the block. I look forward to meeting your pup soon!

Dog Walking in Pittsboro

Located in Chatham County, not too far from Durham and Raleigh, is the town of Pittsboro, North Carolina. Although Pittsboro is small, it’s certainly made a reputation for itself since it was founded in 1785. At one point, the city was under consideration to become North Carolina’s state capital. Instead, that claim went to Raleigh. 

In 2002, Pittsboro even tried to create its own currency! Created in 2002, the currency’s known as “PLENTY,” which is short for Piedmont Local Economy Tender. So far, the currency hasn’t proven too useful, but at one point, the exchange rate at the local bank was around 90 percent. If that’s not enough to make Pittsboro notable for you, children’s author Ursula Vernon and painter Anne Taylor Nash are both from the city.

While all of that is part of what makes Pittsboro great, we know you’re here to learn just how great the city is for your canine companion! Pittsboro has five dog-friendly restaurants, so if you’re hoping to grab a bite to eat with your canine companion, you’re in luck! There are also three different veterinary hospitals in Pittsboro, so if you need care for your furry friend, you can choose the vet that works best for you and your dog’s needs. Pittsboro has something for everyone, including your dog!

About 15 miles north of Pittsboro, you and your playful pup can enjoy Chapel Hill’s Southern Dog Park. This dog park is sure to be a pawesome time for your four-legged friend. There’s plenty of room for him to run around and get his exercise. While your dog is busy making new friends, you can relax on the shaded seating. While you’ll definitely want to bring your own waste disposal bags, as none are provided, you’ll probably want to bring water, too. Sometimes, the park doesn’t have any set out for dogs, and you don’t want your dog to get overheated.

Although Blands is about a 30-minute drive from Pittsboro, if you and your dog love exploring nature together, you’ll definitely want to visit! Blands is home to Eagle Spur Rail-Trail. The trail is nearly 2.5 miles long, so whether you’re a hiker who’s just getting started or have years of experience, you’ll be able to enjoy this path. The trail isn’t paved; it runs through woods, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. Fido has to stay on a leash at all times, which is for his own safety. Bring plenty of water for both you and your dog, and make sure to clean up after your pup.

Carolina Pines provides water for your pooch so that he won’t get too hot while playing, but doesn't supply any waste disposal bags for you. You’ll need to bring some from home.

Are you and your pup feeling up to the ultimate adventure? If you travel about 20 miles north to Chapel Hill’s Carolina North Forest, you’ll find it!
