Hi! I’m Grace and have always had a great repoire with dogs. I have been walking with Wag! since 2019 and have had the pleasure of meeting over 200 dogs. Recently, my 14 year old miniature pincher passed away and I miss her dearly. I am very passionate about animals and believe they deserve to be treated with respect— as dogs truly are man’s best friend. Along with love and good nutrition, dogs need exercise and time outdoors in order to thrive. I’d love to walk your dog! Sincerely, Grace

“Did somebody say “walk”??”

I started petsitting when I was twelve years old and immediately loved it. Over the years I’ve cared for hyper puppies to calmer senior dogs, cats, guinea pigs who needed medical care, spunky hamsters... you name it! I find such gratification when forming friendships with new animals and will put in all my effort in ensuring a happy, comfortable experience for them while its owner is away. I petsit because I enjoy being around the animals and getting to know all their unique personalities.

Vet clinics are not located on this stretch of the island, so you’ll need to visit nearby Hampstead or Surf City to take Fido to the doctor.

Topsail Beach is the ideal location for pups who love the ocean. Let Fido chase the seagulls off-leash between October 1st and May 15th at the Topsail Beach Off Leash Dog Beach, when the beach is less crowded and off season. Make sand castles and go shell hunting with your pup! During the peak season, dogs can still enjoy the beach on leash.
