“I can run with your pup! :)”

Hi I'm Dani! I'm a 26 years old. Animals have always been a huge part of my life & I have a Springer Spaniel who means the world to me. I live a very active lifestyle so walking for Wag has brought me so much joy. If you’re able to let me know beforehand, I’d be more than happy to take your pup for a run! It’s very important to me that your pets/home are treated with care and respect, along with being responsible, patient, & always keeping a positive attitude :)
