“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!

“When life is ruff, hug a dog!”

I was raised in a country town where all animals were treated like family. I have two dogs, a cat who thinks he’s a dog and two ferrets who enjoy chasing said dogs! I have never met a dog I didn’t absolutely love. My basset hound I rescued after he was abandoned. It was love at first sight! I would find great joy in loving your fur baby just as much
