“It’s not where you walk, it’s who you walk with!”

I’m a mother of 3 kids, 2 dogs (A pug and a golden puppy) and a foster mom to the sweetest sheepdog. I recently moved to Cincinnati from Indianapolis, where I began working for Wag. Wag has been such a fun experience for me. I have loved and bonded with every dog that I have walked. Before working for Wag, I worked as a kennel attendant and front desk receptionist at an animal hospital, where I walked, fed and distributed medications to all the boarding animals. My heart is with all dogs.

Hi, My name is Erin! I am a runner, hiker, yogi and outdoor lover. I am in the process of getting certified as a yoga instructor. Last April I attempted to THRU hike the Appalachian trail from Georgia to Maine. I made it over halfway before I got injured in Pennsylvania. I was working for Wag before my hike and enjoyed it so much and walked a ton of dogs and it really helped prepare me. It is so uplifting and rewarding spending time outside with your pups!
