“Walks to get your dog Waggin!”

Hi! I love meeting new pups, enjoy the outdoors, and want to give dogs a chance to exercise while their owners are away! I’ve been surrounded by dogs and cats my whole life. I enjoy caring for friends and family’s dogs while they’re away, including a German Shepard and Golden Doodles, for a week at a time. I’ve never met a pup I didn't get along with! I promise to take the best care of your dogs and keep them safe during walks. Thanks for your consideration!
