“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.
