Hi my name is Greg Parsley! I'm a lifelong dog lover! I was raised up with dogs, cats, rabbits, reptiles and many other animals! But dogs have always been my favorite! I'm a retired postal worker who lives in Galena, a small town just northeast of Westerville. I don't presently have any dogs or any other animals at this time because my girlfriend and I are Snow Birders. We go down to southern Florida every year for winter (Jan 1st - March 31st). It would be very difficult to have any animals since we're gone for so long each year! But I thought if I could be a dog walker during the nine months each year that I am here, it would be a great way to spend time with dogs even if I can't have one myself! Plus I like to walk anyway! I currently walk for about a mile every morning! I know trust is a hard thing to come by these days! But I promise you that I'll earn your trust! If your like me, you see your dog as a member of the family! And you want someone to treat it as such! I'll give your dog the exercise and TLC that it deserves!!!

Hello! My name is Sarah and I’ve been working with Wag! for a little over a year now. It’s been awesome and I’ve met so many great babies, I especially can’t wait to meet yours! My favorite job to take on with Wag! are definitely boardings. I have a perfect little set up that I’ve made into a super friendly & comfortable doggy zone. Feel free to scroll through my reviews, I’m very proud to be a part of the Wag! team & I believe it definitely shows, but it’s easy when I have the best job... dogs!

Dog Walking in Homer
The history of Homer, Ohio is one that seems to have been swept away with time. It is known that there were temporary settlements here as early as the 1780s, and that the first permanent settlements may have been established somewhere around 1806. Homer was named after the Greek Poet because the land seemed to have a poetic beauty to it.
The Native Americans called it the land of the spirits because Homer was the site of several war battles, and is the final resting place of veterans from every major war the United States ever fought as a developing nation -- The Revolutionary War, The War of 1812, and the American-Mexican War. If you're into history, you should bring your dog to explore the graves and cemeteries. If you ask the right people, you will learn the location of the Native American burial grounds in Homer. Always be respectful of these resting places and clean up after your pooch.
Today, Homer is a quiet but historic town that doesn't have very many conventional dog-friendly amenities. If you don't mind taking a thirty-minute drive over to Millersport, you can visit Ohio's oldest state park. Buckeye Lake State Park has fishing, camping, and trails that you can explore with your dog. Don't fur-get to bring all the necessary supplies you'll need for a day at the park!

Everyone loves pizza, even our dogs. That is why Donato's Pizza is pet-friendly!

They have wings if you want something with a kick, and salads if you don't. Donato's Pizza is located in the heart of Mount Vernon, just ten miles from Homer.

Come and take a walk through some of the prettiest countryside you will ever see. The Kokosing Gap Trail is located about ten miles from Homer.

You and your dog will love this trail so much that it won't matter if he has to stay on his leash.

Johnstown, Ohio is about twelve miles from Homer. It is the home or T.J Evan Trail, which is part of the Rails-to-Trails system. Each section has its own attributes.
