“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!
