Hi! I am an energetic dog mom of 1, Chum, who is a rescue golden retriever mix. I love being outdoors and I love animals so I figured why not merge my two loves together with Wag! My family and I recently went away on vacation and had to leave our dog behind. Thankfully we had an amazing person to care for Chum like family and I would love to be able to offer that same comfort to others while they are away or at work. Any questions, please ask!

I'm in college currently enrolled at Widener University. I've had my own dog walking business in my hometown since I was about 12 years old, and I've walked over 100 dogs. My goal when using this app is to help make busy pet owners' lives easier by taking care of and walking their dogs when they're not around. I have a furry friend of my own and I understand the responsibility when taking care of a dog.

I am a graduate student who would love to get some fresh air with your pup! I grew up in Vermont with two wonderful dogs, Red (Retriever mix) and Buddy (Collie/Newfoundland). I have experience with both puppies and geriatric dogs. I walked and sat for my previous roommate's American Shepard for 1 year, from the time he was 8 weeks old. I also walked/sat a geriatric Border Collie for 1 year. Due to classes, my availability is variable, so I am best suited for on-demand and one-time walks.

Hello! My name is Keith and I have been a dog owner all my life. Growing my best friend was an all white coat German Shepard named "Star" and boy was he a star! Since then I've owned and taken care of many breeds from Dalmatians to Chihuahuas, and especially those lovable mix breeds. I am very familiar with all of the parks and pet playgrounds in center city Philadelphia and am always looking forward to meeting the next canine friend.

“I work hard so my dog can have a better life.”

Hi! My name is Laura, and I like dogs more than people! Okay, that might not be the best thing to say, but let’s be honest, dogs have such an unrelenting joy and love about them that just makes them so lovable, and I love spending time with them. I’m a dog mom myself, so I know how important it is to make sure that your dog has the best care in the world, and I ensure you that I will give your dog that care!
