    “Let’s get walking!”

    Hi there fur moms and dads! My name is Kat, known among my friends as the crazy dog lady. I have been involved in dog rescue/fostering for 15 years. I enjoy meeting new people and their 4-legged best friends. I have 11 dogs of my own! I know how worried you can get when they need to go out during the day and no one is around to help you. I can help! I’d be happy to check in and visit with or walk your pets when you can’t. Just ask, and I’ll be there. I am home full time during the summer.

    Having been both a veterinary student and a professional dog walker, I am familiar with the ins and outs of watching, walking, and sitting dogs in both personal and professional settings. From learning animal related science in school, I am knowledgeable about the physiology of dogs and know how to perform CPR. Aside from educational and professional experience with dogs, I've also owned many dogs and have loved every second of it!

    Hi, I'm Lauren! I've been a dog owner all my life and have had a few pups, including a special-needs Golden Retriever, so I'm used to dogs who need lots of extra attention. I've been professionally dog-walking and dog-sitting for years and have walked a wide range of dog breeds. Some tasks I've had with past clients are walking, training, administering medication, feeding and checking water, bringing pups to appointments, playing, etc. I'm very excited to meet your very best friend!

    Hi! I'm Amanda. I am a hardcore animal lover with experience handling breeds from small to XL. I myself have grown up with dogs of the following breeds: German Shepherd, Shepherd mix, Yorkies, beagles, Malteses, Havaneses, and Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. I currently own a beautiful Shepherd/Collie Mix, Tobias, who I rescued about 2.5 years ago and trained myself. I look forward to meeting your beloved pooch!

    “Excited to meet your best friend!”

    Hi, I’m Samantha! I have been a professional dog walker for over 4 years now and have grown up with dogs all my life — sized big, small and everything in between! Currently, I have a 2-year-old Bichon Poodle (Teddy) keeping me company at home, but I love meeting new dogs. Every single pup has such a unique personality and energy. I would love to meet your best friend and give them the same level of care I expect for my puppy, making sure they feel happy, and, most of all, loved!

    My name is Andrew and I am a 26-year-old college educated animal lover who likes to play music and works in the fashion industry. I joined Wag because since I moved out of the house I grew up in, I haven't been able to spend as much time with dogs as I've wanted to. Becoming a Wag dog walker gives me the opportunity to help people with their dogs and spend time with dogs in general. I am a very friendly person and I would love to help you walk your dog!
