Hi, I'm Quinton! I have had various breeds of dogs while growing up (German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, and Bullmastiff just to name a few).

Hi there! My name is Raquel and I have 3 of my own fur babies, all of different sizes and breeds. Two of which are pups and one senior! I'm experienced in walking and taking care of other dogs as well. I love animals of all breeds and sizes and don't discriminate. Big, small, young, elderly, I love them all :) I have worked for Wag! for 8 months and counting and have done 500+ walks and several sittings and boardings with animals of all sizes, breeds, and ages. I have also cared for my own pets as well as my family and friend's pets for 10+ years. I have mostly dealt with dogs but am open to pet care for any and all animals as long as they are friendly and not aggressive! I absolutely love animals and love my job because I don't consider it work! It does require hard work, however the animals as well as their owners make it all worth it and so rewarding! Never have I felt more respected and appreciated than I do with this job. Dog/Animal people are the best people! If your pet requires medication or special care I'm willing to do this as well with detailed instructions or a demonstration. Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to meeting your fur babies!

Dog Walking in Wendell

A town in Wake County, North Carolina, Wendell is known to locals and visitors for its small-town charm, in spite of the population not being all that small. It’s not as busy as the nearby city of Raleigh by any means; in fact, it can be something of a welcome reprieve from the bustling technology hub. It’s easy to see why people would flock to the area, especially dog lovers of all sorts. 

While Wendell itself doesn’t have many attractions of its own, its proximity to Raleigh and other big cities in North Carolina make it a must-see location for a doggy day trip. So whether you’re just visiting, or if you’re there long term, it’s always good to know the slices of doggy paradise in the area. One such location, smack dab in the middle of Raleigh, is Oakwood Dog Park. An expansive space which features an area for dogs of all sizes, as well a separate section for small or frail dogs, your pup is sure to fit in with the friendly faces in this park -- be they man or beast! Water is provided, though you will need to clean up any messes that your pup may make!

If your pup is the adventurous sort, and you’re already in the Raleigh area, it’s worth making a stop in the neighborhood of Umstead. This is where you’ll find Sal’s Branch Trail within William B. Umstead State Park. With a dog-friendly hiking trail around 2.7 miles in length, you and your leashed companion will be sure to enjoy the sights and sounds that Sal’s Branch has to offer. Rated as moderately difficult, it will be a welcome challenge for newbies, or a relaxing stroll if you’re a serious hiker. Either way, bring plenty of waste bags and water to hydrate you both!

To run off a bit of excess energy, there’s nothing better than a good game of frisbee catch. In Pineywood Townes, a neighborhood in Durham, there’s a dog park with a whole section dedicated just to frisbee catch! At Piney Wood Dog Park, your dog will have plenty of space to romp and play. If you’re not feeling the interactive aspects of frisbee tossing, allow your dog in one of the other two fenced areas -- one is for large dogs, and the other is for small, frail, or elderly pups. There are plenty of places to sit, and water is provided.

If your pup is nervous about getting off their leash, or if their voice command isn’t so great, never fear! Make your way to Ramblewood, a beautiful neighborhood in Apex. Ramblewood is home to Apex Community Park, which houses hiking trails as well as playgrounds and plenty of woodlands to explore. Your pup pal will need to remain on their leash at all times, but that won’t stop you from having a good time! Just be sure to bring some clean drinking water and waste bags. Trash cans are evenly dispersed through the park, so disposal won’t be a problem.

After a long day of enjoying the sights with man’s best friend, there’s no better way to unwind than sampling a selection of delicious brews -- of the alcoholic sort, of course. Make your way to Grove Park, where you’ll find Raleigh Brewing Company. There are a number of craft brews here, from porter to stout, and although they do not serve food within the brewery, there are usually a number of food trucks on-site. Well-behaved and leashed dogs are allowed both inside and outside, so grab yourself a drink and settle down with your pup and some new pals!
