“I treat every dog like my own!”

I’ve been dog walking for a year and a half, I have been dog sitting and boarding for several years. I own 3 dogs myself and have always loved animals. I especially love the bully breeds and big dogs. The dogs that are more difficult are my speciality! Every dog I walk is treated like my own and I take the time to get to know their personality by the time our walk is over. I love my job walking your dogs and can guarantee a worn out pup when we get back!

“Walking your best friend is an honor.”

Hello! I have worked with shelter dogs my whole life and I am very comfortable with their individual quirks. I currently have 3 roommates: a mixed breed, a 3-legged shar-pei, and a once homeless street beagle and they are my best friends. I would do anything for them and I promise to treat yours with the same respect. I am quite familiar with the importance that dogs provide the family and I promise to give your fur baby the same love I give my own. I can’t wait to meet your pup!

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!

“Pup need a potty break? I got this!”

Hi, it's Tracy, your friendly WAG! walker here. I’ve been walking with WAG! for 3 years now. It’s definitely the most fun/rewarding job ever! I love meeting all the new dogs and taking them on an adventure (that’s dog speak for walk...lol). I also volunteer walking dogs at Columbus Humane (over 10 years) and that's where I adopted my two Chihuahuas.  I know you cherish your fur babies and I will take care of them as good as I take care of my own. I can’t wait to meet and get to know them!

Hi, my name is Sue and there is nothing more I enjoy than spending time with dogs! When I was little I brought home all the homeless dogs, as an adult I continue with that behavior. I have spent the last 30+ years owning dogs and the last 20 years involved with animals rescue through breed specific organizations and Humane Societies. I have fostered and rehabilitated many dogs of numerous breeds and personalities, some who loved everyone, some who could not trust anyone. Each dog I meet I recognize as an individual. My walks focus on what they enjoy and what you request. I am fortunate to be able to finally do what I love, provide superb care and love to your dog while you are at work or away! Thank you.

Dog Walking in New Albany

The best suburb in America according to Business Insider, New Albany is one of the nicest communities to visit  or live with both furry and human children in tow! New Albany boasts a nationally recognized, award-winning education system, one of the lowest crime rates in the country, and more than 600 acres of recreational space to keep both residents and visitors happy and healthy.

It's no surprise, then, that this prosperous community is also incredibly dog-friendly! New Albany is home to three veterinary clinics, so your pup will be in good paws -- er, hands -- while you're here. Despite the suburb's wealth of public parks, New Albany doesn't have any special recreation spots for pooches to play or run off-leash. For off-leash fun, you'll have to travel west to Blendon Woods Metro Park in Westerville. This public park has a 1.5-mile walking loop for a simple walk or an extra exercise. The area can be really wet and even flooded when it rains, so take heed and plan accordingly.

A good alternative on a rainy day is Brooksedge Dog Park, located in the Brooksedge Meadows neighborhood of Westerville. This park features about 3 acres of open space for pups to run and play, complete with grass, benches, drinking water facilities and two sections for small and large breeds.

New Albany is perhaps the best place to live or visit in America. But don't just take our word for it -- or Business Insider's, for that matter. Visit New Albany to see for yourself!

Linworth

Linworth is one of the northern neighborhoods of Columbus set near the city of Worthington. The neighborhood is busy near West Dublin Granville Road, but the farther you move south, the quieter it becomes. Keep heading south to find Linworth Park and Godown Park. The latter is a great place to stop by with the pooch to explore the leafy terrain with plenty of trees and diverse fauna. You will also find Godown Dog Park located within the main area, which is a cool spot for pooches to run off-leash and burn all their energy. There are two separate sections for small and large pups in this 7-acre park.

Whitestone

The neighborhood of Whitestone is nestled on the banks of Olentangy River. The center of the area is occupied by Columbus Park of Roses, Whitestone Community Recreation, and Northmoor Park. According to the locals, the area suits perfectly for dog owners and their leashed furry babies, because of Whitestone Park's off-leash policies for pooches! But be careful -- the park is not fenced at all, so you may want to keep your buddy on his leash while he explores the walking paths. The creek is the perfect place to make a splash and cool off on a summer day. And, if it's a really hot day, take a seat at one of the outdoor tables at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and share a sweet treat with your pup!

Wonderland

One of the remote eastern neighborhoods in Columbus, Wonderland is surrounded by Nicklaus Freeway and The Outerbelt to the north and Big Walnut Creek to the south. The area isn't exactly a tourist destination that's thriving with shops, eateries, and photo opportunities, but it does have a nice spot to sit in the shade on a sunny day – Pizzurro Park. The public park has plenty of outdoor attractions, including walking trails, picnic zones, fishing opportunities and a fenced dog park! Feel free to take Fido to the on-site Pooch Playground to socialize with other canine friends, sniff, dig and run to his heart's content!

Big Walnut Park

Set in the remote, eastern part of Columbus on Big Walnut Creek, Big Walnut Park is a nice and convenient recreation spot to visit with the whole family, furry members included! Featuring a recreation center, athletic fields, and walking trails, this city park certainly hasn't forgotten about its four-legged visitors! Leashed pups are welcome to explore the walking trails, or enjoy some off-leash playtime at the on-site dog park. This dog park is so much more than just a fenced, off-leash park with two separate sections for small and large breeds! The place boasts an amazing doggie swimming pond with crystal clear water and a clean environment. Be sure to pack some towels -- your pooch won't be able to resist taking a dip!

Gahanna Commercial Center is probably one of the dog-friendliest neighborhoods around! It's home to more than five casual and sophisticated eateries with pet-friendly policies. Massey’s Pizza at Lincoln Cir and Donatos Pizza at Granville Street both provide table service at the dog-friendly outdoor seating area. Fido is sure to beg for a piece of your pizza! Keep in mind that the number of outdoor places is limited, so be sure to call ahead during busy period. Or, if you're looking to grab a quick lunch, head to Firehouse Subs or Panera Bread.
