“Dog Time is Happy Time”

Hello! I'm Angie and I‘m the ultimate dog lover. I’ve had dogs my entire life, and spent many hours dog-sitting for others. I currently have three dogs - 100 pound pit mix, 40 pound springer spaniel/lab mix and an 11 pound chihuahua/papillon mix - so I have experience with all different sizes and personalities. I’ve raised them all from puppy stage, so I also have a lot of experience with each doggy stage.

Hey! My name’s Dylan and I’ve been working with Wag for over a year- all weather, all breeds- and I’m hugely proud of the hundreds of clients who trust me with their dogs. I grew up as the caretaker to the sweetest corgi, with a large extended family nearby that was bouncing with all kinds of dogs. I’ve trained for track with a golden (yes, I can handle a runner pooch), toured the country with a dog in the band van, and now as a working musician fill the dog-shaped hole in my heart with Wag!

“meeting your dog is the highlight of my day :)”

I live in Clintonville with my spouse, two dogs, and three cats, and hope one day to have a dog and cat rescue! I do microbiology research at OSU and my erratic lab schedule allows me to walk the many wonderful Wag pups across Columbus. I care for your dogs (and cats!) as I do my own, and I aim to keep your pets happy and hydrated, and you well-informed with detailed reports and cute pictures. At this time by default I will wear a mask when inside your home and/or snuggling with your dog.

“Let’s go for a walk!”

Hey! I’m Stephanie and I can’t wait to meet your dog! I’m a full time wedding photographer with my boyfriend, but that leaves me with tons of time during the week to have fun with your nuggets! I volunteered at a shelter as a kid and have loved dogs for as long as I can remember. I have one rescue nugget of my own, but he’s very understanding with my love for all dogs and doesn’t get too jealous. I have experience watching and walking dogs of all shapes and sizes - including a pack of 5 Danes!
