I’m Erin and I absolutely love dogs. Seeing their faces and wagging tails just makes my day. Being with dogs is what makes me happiest. I worked at a grooming salon and learned some wonderful tricks of the trade. I know a lot of useful tips for making any kind of transition easy and peaceful for the furry friends.

Hi, my name is Kristina, I grew up with dogs being part of my family my whole life. So I know how important your fur child means to you. I just adopted a beautiful Golden Retriever German Shepard mix named Bailey, she just turned 3 on September 8th. I adopted her in November of 2017 from a shelter called Southern Paws who work with many shelters to help give dogs a better chance at having a great life. Becoming part of Wag gave me an opportunity to work with dogs and get them outside to explore the world around them. Walks make dogs happy and stay healthy and that is a big plus for your pet visit. I am not certified in any way expect a certified pet lover and treat giver if that counts. Your Wag Walker, Kristina
