    “Your dog ‘s best friend!”

    I love animals and enjoyed walking our dog with my daughter when she was growing up. I currently have a rescue dog who is 8 years old. Bonding with her has been a wonderful experience. I can assure you that I will enjoy spending time with your fur baby and provide quality time. I have been caring for dogs with Wag! for over two years now and it has been a wonderful experience! I love everything about my experience with Wag! I have the opportunity to meet so many dogs with amazing personalities!

    Hi, my name is Judy. I have always had a dog in my life. My dogs and I have attended many obedience classes where I learned a lot! I love animals and am a docent volunteer at the Buffalo Zoo. I worked full time retail for many years so I know how difficult it can be for pets and owners who work. Walking with Wag has been a great experience and I love spending time with my furry friends!

    Hi! I'm Jeff. I have loved dogs my entire life. From loving our family dog as a child, to being a loving adult owner, they have always had a big place in my life. I have been walking, and sitting, dogs for several years. It started out as just helping friends, and turned into a part-time passion. I have experience with many types of breeds, from small puppies to large senior dogs. I can handle any type of temperament a dog may have. They all deserve the same amount of love, and companionship. I take care of every dog like it is my own. Nothing can make a day better than to be greeted by a happy dog at home.

    Hi! I'm Kate. I'm a freelance writer who recently finished grad school. I'm looking for a little extra income and a few energetic pups to exercise with, so Wag is awesome! I started pet sitting and dog walking in my late teens, and I'm the proud godmother of Wayne and Ginsberg, a monstrous mutt and a small furry mutt respectively.

    I’ve been taking care of my australian shepherd, Kolby for almost my whole life. I’ve also pet sat for friends and family occasionally for the past 4 years. I volunteered at the SPCA for a year where I walked and fed the dogs. I just love being around dogs and they usually enjoy my company too.

    I have had, and have loved dogs literally since birth! From that first beagle to my current Shepherd-pit mix Kerry, I take pride in my responsibility in feeding, walking, medicating, exercising, playing, and in being affectionate with my dogs(all rescues). I develop a bond with my dogs (and cats too) because I care for them, and they provide unconditional love. I understand signals dogs give through their fur and facial expressions so that every walk is safe. That is my utmost priority. If I should be fortunate to be selected to walk your dog, I will consider him or her as part of my pack!

    “I will take excellent care of your dogs for you”

    I'm a huge animal lover and work with animals at an animal hospital for the past 20 yrs and have plenty of experience with animals and walking dogs! I dog sit occasionally on the side for people who need me to watch their pets while away. I've always had an passion for animals since I was little so I'm extremely happy to be doing what I have a passion for. I do have to bring my son sometimes with me on walks

    Judy met with us to ensure that we would be comfortable with her entering our home in our absence and to meet our dogs! We immediately loved her! She was so good with our dogs and listened when we told her about our dogs needs and instructions. We could also tell that she had a lot of animal experience. With her care and flexibility combined, we will definitely continue to utilize her services!
