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!

Dog Walking in Buffalo

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1

No matter whether you’re the proud pet parent of a Pug, a Poodle, or a Pomeranian, every dog needs regular exercise. Just like us, dogs need physical activity to ensure that they stay in a healthy weight range. But exercise can also provide wonderful mental stimulation for your pup, giving them a chance to experience new sights, sounds, and smells. And what better way to exercise your dog than take them for a walk?

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2

Some dogs get along like a house on fire with every other pooch they meet. Unfortunately, not all pups are as outgoing and sociable. If your dog is nervous and fearful around other pooches, or perhaps even downright aggressive, you might need to train them how to greet other dogs and how to be more social. Socialization is also crucial to ensure that your pup grows into a calm and well-behaved dog.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3

Walking your dog regularly helps them stay in shape — something that's very important for your furry family member. Obesity can have a range of serious health consequences for dogs, and it’s a contributing factor for everything from arthritis to diabetes. So if you’re feeling lazy and thinking it’s OK if your dog goes without exercise today, think again.
