Hi there! I have loved dogs since I was a child and would love the opportunity to walk your pup!! I have worked with animals in some form since 2006. I started at a kennel where I worked with many breeds, sizes, and temperaments. After working there for 6 years, I went to college where I received an Associates Degree with a Veterinary Technician focus and since then I've been working at an animal clinic.

I am a 32-year resident of the West Chester area. I have volunteered as a dog-walker at the Humane Assoc. of Warren Co. for more than 10 years, and have been trained to provide 'working walks' that release energy and stimulate their brains as well. I often walk and pet-sit for friends' and neighbors' dogs when needed. I am recently retired and find that Wag! is the perfect way to spend my extra free time doing an activity that I enjoy.

“Must love dogs”

Hi, I’m Michelle and I have a 7 month old bishon/shihtzu mix! I was always the girl in the neighborhood that people would call to pet sit for them while they were away or to take their dogs for walks. I’m so passionate about Wag and providing the best care for your pup, that I recently became certified in dog CPR, safety, and first aid. Dogs bring such joy to so many people and I just want to provide them with the same love and excitement that they bring to us!

I am a graduate student pursuing a Master’s of Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Ohio Dominican University. I love all kinds of dogs and unfortunately don’t have a pup of my own at this time due to my rigorous and varying schedule, so I love giving my full attention to dogs that I walk! I have had experience pet sitting overnight and babysit frequently as well, so I have a heart for caring for both humans and animals! I look forward to the opportunity of meeting your furry loved ones!

“Your pup is your baby! Let me take good care!”

My name is Bria, my friends would refer to me as the Animal Enthusiast. From a young age, I have always been drawn to nature, insects, and of course, animals! Growing up, I was fortunate enough to experience camping, pet store shadowing, and volunteer work at local animal shelters. In college I rescued my wonderful Rottie named Roxie, who has shown me just what it means to be man's best friend! I cannot wait to meet your babies, and I hope we will develop lasting friendships on our fun walks!

Dog Walking in Franklin

The city of Franklin, Ohio was named after Benjamin Franklin and dates back almost to the time that the U.S. became a nation. Franklin has roots in racehorse breeding, but much of its rich history stems from its commerce, which got a big boost when the Erie Canal was built. Franklin offers a lot for its residents, like a city pool, parades and events, and beautiful riverfront communities along the Great Miami River. You’ll find a couple of dog-friendly chain restaurants here, and thanks to Franklin’s convenient location to other towns and cities, you’ll find plenty of pawtastic stuff to do nearby.

Head about 20 miles north to Dayton for several dog-friendly restaurants, like Milano’s, where you can grab a pizza or calzone and dine on the outdoor patio with your pooch. Dayton is also home to an access point of the Great Miami River Recreation Trail (your leashed pup is welcome!), which has some incredible sights along the way.

Once you get to the city, visit Smale Riverfront Park, which gives you breathtaking views of Kentucky and the Ohio River as you walk along its trails. You can even let your pup splash in the water fountains! Franklin is only moments away from furtastic fun in Ohio.
