“Nurturing, Reliable and Trustworthy Walker”

Hi! I am a native New Yorker. As an animal lover, I have walked dogs as a volunteer for Brooklyn's Barc shelter before becoming a Wag! walker.

Meeting new dogs is fun for me and I enjoy getting to know their distinct personalities so that I can better serve them.

“Dog walking is no job; it's a passion!”

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 2 years now, which I absolutely love! I have had an endearing love for dogs since 2001 when my parents finally gave into the many pleas of my two younger brothers and I to get us a dog. We were introduced to Tiki, a magnificent Black Labrador, who became the sister we never had.
