“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.

“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!

“There's nothing like a dog's love!”

I love all animals but dogs have a special place in my heart. I’ve been around dogs since I was 5. I have more experience with high energy dogs. I don’t have any current certifications but I want to get my dog first aid and cpr certification soon. I currently have a dog, he is a miniature pinscher chihuahua mix and has more energy than most small dogs. I have had him since he was 2 months old and trained him myself.
