Wag! is the nation's fastest-growing network of pre-screened and insured pet sitters and dog walkers. In less than 15 minutes you can book a nearby dog sitter, daycare provider, or dog walker, who'll take complete care of your loved one - at their place or yours.
I’ve been in love with dogs my whole life, and I’ve rescued quite a few. I’ve gotten to be very good at calming and distracting dogs who get a little bit nervous or unsteady with others or their surroundings. I do my best to know the moves a dog might make before they make them, along with sensing their mood in certain situations so that I’ll always be ready for anything. The most important thing is to know that both you & your best friend can always feel secure in knowing they are safe with me.

Hello! I'm an administrator for a university and go to law school at night. I have one dog, but love to host the dogs of my family and friends when they are out of town, too. I can appreciate how important it is to have someone reliable to help out sometimes, so I hope to pass it on!

I have been a dog lover and owner my entire life. Happily, I am currently the owner of a Dachshund named Rosa and a Border Collie cross puppy named Mia. I have also had a large mutt as my best friend, and currently own a delightful rescue cat named Charlotte. Nothing in my life makes me as happy as sharing time with them, except being with my 18 month old godchild! I love Nature, am an avid gardener, and birdwatcher. Every dog I walk I cherish as if my own for however long we are together.
I am a recent grad from the University of Michigan! I love animals. I currently own two cats, but I would love to spend more time with dogs. I grew up with three dogs throughout my childhood and my parents trusted me to take care of them at a young age. I have good time-management skills, I communicate as clearly and effectively as I can, and I have a passion for animals and their well-being.

“Compassion for All Animals ”
I love showing my compassion for animals both as an activist and a caregiver. I have experience caring for many different species of animals through my work as a contractor for Wag!, as well as local businesses Phil's Animal Wellness Services and Sits N Wiggles. I run an animal rights nonprofit and work with the vegan student organization at Cleveland State University, where I study nonprofit administration and philosophy. I can't wait to get to know your canine family member!

“Walk and run, rain or shine”
Walking for Wag! provides me with the opportunity to share my love with animals. I grew up adopting and fostering quite a few different animals from all backgrounds. I enjoy the ability to help out others when their canines and felines need an extra hand.

Hello! I am a recent nursing graduate taking some time off before beginning my job search. In the meantime, I'd love to spend some time outside with your dog :) While I was in school, I worked at a doggy daycare and boarding facility, so I have a lot of experience creating safe and fun experiences for all kinds of dogs. I also grew up with a mastiff, so I am confident in my ability to handle even the largest and strongest pets!

“I’ve got the energy for your high energy pup!”
Hi, my name is Hannah and I'm a lover of all animals-especially dogs! I was born and raised on a farm, so working with and caring for our hard-working dogs has always been a great pleasure of mine. Although my dogs and I worked hard during the day, we always enjoyed our evening walks and runs! Aside from caring for my own dogs, I have dog-sat, walked, and had 'play-time' with a number of my neighbors', friends', and family members' own pets.

Set on the banks of the spectacular Lake Erie, Mentor-on-the-Lake is a beautiful little city to stay a while with your pup. Rest assured that the animal hospital in town is there to help should your pal fall ill on your travels, or neighboring Mentor has many vet clinics that would also be happy to assist.
For your first stop, take your pet to the 13-acre Mentor Beach Park on the edge of Lake Erie. This beautiful beach is a mile long, with views out over the water and well-kept park grounds to enjoy. The picnic grove is a great spot to stop for a packed lunch or snack, or just stretch out on the grass for a rest. Your dog will love visiting this spot with you, and well-behaved pups will enjoy freely trotting along by your side, but have your lead handy as well.
Another pawriffic park in Mentor-on-the-Lake is the three-acre Overlook Beach Park. Pop your buddy on the lead and take a walk together along the waterfront walkway, or just go exploring the park’s grounds. There is so much to see here, with the landscape varying from open grassed areas to a section of thick woodland, it is worth spending a bit of time here. Playground equipment and a basketball court will keep the kids busy too.
There are many more things to do around Mentor-on-the-Lake – you and your travel companion are sure to have a great time.
Looping your way around the 1.8-mile walking
track at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Mentor is a pawfect way to spend an
afternoon with your pup. The easy trail takes you around the park’s grounds
through native wetlands, across a boardwalk and down to a wildlife viewing area.
In total, this green space is 100 acres and boasts the largest inland pond, so there
is plenty more to explore! Restrooms are provided for your comfort, as is
drinking water, but bring a travel bowl for your thirsty pup. The picnic area
has grills for cooking up a well-earned lunch, and picnic tables and a shelter
for relaxing at before you head off on your next adventure.
Your pooch will rejoice at the chance to escape
the lead and run free at the Mentor City Dog Park in neighbouring Mentor! Two
secure, fully fenced areas separate big pups from the littles, and the play area is
double-gated so you can be assured your dog will be able to socialize safely.
A doggie water fountain is provided here, but bring a bowl for your pup.
Benches keep you comfortable as you supervise, and waste disposal bags are provided
for clean-up jobs. It’s a good idea to pack a towel for your soggy pooch in wet
weather, as the ground can get a little muddy here (but that’s half the fun!).
Osborne Park in Willoughby is 2.4 miles southwest of Mentor-on-the-Lake, and a great little spot to come for a walk and
picnic with your pup. There is a pawriffic paved path around the park to wander
with your pooch, who will also love soaking up the sun with you on the lush
grassed area overlooking pristine Lake Erie. If you have kids with you, they
will enjoy the basketball court, tennis court, playground and disc golf. It is
a good idea to keep your pet leashed here, as it is a popular community park.
Always bring your waste disposal bags to help keep the place clean.
The Edward R. Walsh Park, also known as Bellflower
Park, in Mentor is 2.7 miles from Mentor-on-the-Lake, and offers a beautiful
green space for some time outdoors with your pup. The 1.5-mile path is perfect
for an on-lead walk together, with exercise stations along the way for added
effort. Take a stroll around the fishing lake and enjoy the views, or simply spend
some time sitting under the trees with a snack. While you are here, the kids
will enjoy the playground, ball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts and
fishing pond. A spraypark also operates during summer. Restrooms are on site, and there is plenty of parking. Your pooch will need to stay leashed while you
visit this Edward R. Walsh Park.
The Headlands Beach State Park in Mentor is on the northernmost tip of State-wide Buckeye Trail, where the Burton and Bedford sections meet. There is 1.5 miles of easy, accessible trail through the area and more extending southeast and south west of the park. Keep track of how far you have walked, as you will need to return the same way. The Buckeye Trail extends a total of 1,444 miles in a massive loop through Ohio, identified by blue blazes on trees and signposts along the way. Pets are permitted on this trail, but must remain leashed and it is a ‘leave no trace’ area. There is a picnic area at the Headlands Beach State Park where you can cook up some lunch on the grills, or enjoy a packed lunch after your walk.
