Hi, I'm Catherine. I grew up in upstate New York with a golden retriever named Snickers and loved taking him on long walks, runs (sometimes), and adventures (all the time). I genuinely enjoy spending time with dogs and showing them patience, care, and a fun time! I'm very active and when I'm not walking your furry pal, I'm likely running or weight training. I would love to help keep your dog healthy, fit, and happy! I'm disciplined and responsible. I want to provide you and your dog the best experience with Wag! and give you peace of mind knowing your dog is in good hands.

Hi! I absolutely love dogs, I’m the person always asking to say hello to your pup. I’ve been around dogs since a very young age. My first dog was a golden lab and then our chocolate lab joined the family too. They have since passed and I miss being around furry companions. I understand the love an owner has for it’s best friend and it’s important for me to take excellent care of your furry friends!

Hi! I’m Kerri, and I’m currently a college student in New York. I have my own dog, Arnie, who I walk and care for every day. Since joining Wag, I’ve walked energetic puppies and lazy bulldogs, a great dane and tiny senior dogs. On my own, I walk very fast, but my own dog loves to take her time and sniff everything so I can accommodate either. I also just love dogs and would love to meet yours!
