“I love every dog!”

I am a stay-at-home dog mom to a lab mix named Stella. I have experience volunteering at animal shelters as well as previous work experience at a doggie day care, and have walked and sat for several of my friends! I have also earned a certificate in Animal Welfare Management from Stautzenberger College. My goal is to be the ‘next best thing’ for your dog when you are not able to be there, and will do my absolute best to make sure your pup is comfortable and happy while in my care.

“I will take excellent care of your pup!”

Hello everyone, my name is Krystal! An owner of three dogs myself, I know how important it is to make sure your pooches are taken care of. I started my experience with pet care at a very young age and it has always came naturally to me. Whether it’s walking, boarding or sitting, I have always enjoyed taking care and being around dogs.

“Dog’s best friend”

Hello, my name is Michael, I'm a 22-year old graduate of The Ohio State University. I’ve had animals all of my life, and I currently have two dogs and a cat. Having pets has made me a more caring, patient and understanding person, and every second spent with a dog is a precious moment. I’m experienced with both high and low energy dogs as I’ve had puppies and I’ve had dogs as old as 17! I’m excited to become best buds with your pup and go on many more walks with them in the future!

“Animal whisperer; BS Animal Behavior”

Hello, my name is Claire and I LOVE animals! I have my Bachelor's in Zoology with lots of experience with exotic animals, even lions when I was in Africa! I have had animals all of my life (many dogs, many fish, gerbils, and currently two cats) and can't imagine life without them. To save up money for grad school I decided to walk dogs for Wag! I love spending time outside and would love a dog of my own, but my cats would not be happy, making Wag! the perfect fit for me!

“Walk or run, let's start the fun!”

As a true pet lover and dog owner myself, you will not be disappointed with my services! I maximize each walk whether that is ensuring the pup gets their potty break in or if it's just for some exercise, my time is dedicated to the pups needs. I treat each pup as my own and am always willing to spend a little extra time to give out belly rubs and love! Boardings within my home are also equally as fun; I have a big fenced in backyard and a large doggie door that gives the pup some extra freedom!

Dog Walking in Fairlawn

Fairlawn is a city in Summit County, Ohio, and although it covers just 4.5 square miles, it has a lot to offer visiting pups! There is one vet clinic in town, but many more in neighbouring Akron should your best friend need a little extra TLC.

While in town, head over to the two-acre Bicentennial Park for a little walk along the paved paths, or play on the grassed area. There is a veteran’s memorial and beautiful gardens to admire here. The other main park in town is also worth a visit, the Fort Island/ Griffiths Park. This area is rich in geologic history, with kettle and kame (mound) formation from ancient glacial action common throughout the area. There is a boardwalk and short trails to check out with your pup. At the park, there are also the usual amenities; a great playground for the kids, restrooms, ball courts and picnic areas. Keep your pet leashed while you enjoy both of these community parks together.

For a pup-friendly place to eat in Fairlawn, head to Leonado’s for a tasty pizza at their outdoor table. This place has all your favorite pizza toppings, plus a selection of salads, chicken dishes and sandwiches. To indulge your sweet tooth, check out Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt or Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt.

So, put on your walking shoes, grab the lead and head out with your pup for a great time together in Fairlawn!

There is lots to do here in Croghan Park. The neighbourhood’s namesake, Croghan Park, is a 0.75 acre community park where you can bring your pup for an on-lead walk on the paved walkways, enjoy a picnic on the grass and let the kids play on the playground or ball courts. There are shopping centres on either side of Croghan Park for a little window shopping and a stroll through the center of town. If you would like a little more of a walk with your pup on a lead, head east in this neighbourhood to the Sand Run Metro Park Revere Rd, where you will find the trailhead for the six-mile Parkway Jogging Trail which runs into the larger Sand Run Metro Park area. There is parking, toilets and a water fountain at the trailhead. After your walk, head to nearby Panera Bread for a salad, sandwich or wrap, or try one of their freshly baked pastries washed down with a hot coffee. Your pup is welcome to sit with you here at one of the outside tables.

Sand Run Metro Park in neighbouring Akron is a huge pet-friendly park covering 998 acres of beautiful woodland. There are five trails here, the shortest being 1.4 miles, and they are all relatively difficult, so make sure you wear appropriate shoes and clothing here. In addition, there is a section of the multipurpose Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail that winds 41 miles through Summit County, as well as a section of the Buckeye Trail, so you are not short on hiking options! There are picnic shelters, drinking fountains and restrooms scattered throughout the park and several parking places. As this is such a large place, it is worth sourcing a map through Summit Metro Parks before you head off. Keep your pup on a lead and pack your water, food and clean up bags for a great day out in the woods with your pal.

The O’Neill Woods Metro Park in Akron is another great pet-friendly woodland area to explore together. There are two trails in the 295-acre former farm, both of relative difficulty, so come prepared for a good hike! The Deer Run Trail is 1.8 miles and named because it follows a path worn by white-tailed deer down to the river valley. You will get spectacular views of the Cuyahoga River and the Cuyahoga River Valley, and you may even be lucky enough to spot the deer too! The other trail is a section of the Statewide Buckeye Trail that loops a massive 1,444 miles around Ohio. Keep your pet leashed here as it is a national park, and enjoy the time out in the fresh air with your pup by your side.

Hampton Hills Metro Park in Cuyahoga Falls is one of the largest of the Summit Metro Parks, covering 655 acres of glacial-formed valley and lush forest. There are two trails here; the Adam Run Trail is 3.2 miles and the Spring Hollow Trail 1.6 miles. Both are through relatively difficult terrain and cross several seasonal streams, so dress accordingly. There are picnic areas and tables scattered throughout the park to relax and enjoy a packed lunch. Three parking areas are provided and restrooms are available on the western side of the park. This is a pet-friendly area, but you must keep your pup leashed at all times, and always clean up any mess he leaves behind.
