I love pets. I'm very aware of my surroundings and am very observant. I know when things are going well and when they aren't. I can tell when dogs are streased, ill or over exurted. I know what it means to dog proof a house to make sure pets stay safe. I walk my dog a lot on pedestrian paths and know how to safely walk dogs on a short leash, close to you, especially when there are other people, pets or animals around.

Hello, my name is Kelly! I am one of those people that tends to care more about pets than roommates. I am very experienced with all types of dogs. I grew up with a German Shepherd, a tiny Maltese and many in between. I currently have my own dog, I rescued her from the Toledo area. She was very anxious and shy when she first came home with me but she has made great progress! I feel that I am easily adaptable to a dog’s mental state.

“Experienced walker/runner of dogs of all sizes!”

Hi, I'm Kelly! I joined the Wag Community because I love dogs, and I needed a side job to help pay for college and living expenses. I've previously owned a yellow labrador and a cocker spaniel, so I have experience with both large and small dogs. I've walked 200+ dogs since last year, and I'd love to walk yours! I'm also a runner, so if asked I will gladly go the extra mile. Quality care is my #1 priority. I respond promptly to all messages, so you can be assured your dog is in safe hands.

I grew up in Bowling Green Ohio, and have been around dogs all of my life. First, there was a German Shepard named Keisha, and her Black Lab/Shepard mix pal Brutus. Later, we got a Puggle named Sandy, and a Maltese named Ian. I've now moved to Columbus for college, and the dog count back home has reached 5! We still have Sandy, but now we have a German Shepard named Holly, two Lab/Pitt/Rottweiler mix rescues named Jackson and Ruby, and our newest (unknown mix) addition Sarah. I miss them all, but always look forward to seeing them back home!

Hello pup parents! My name is Alexandria. I reside in Findlay, OH. I love dogs in all shapes, forms and sizes! My dream one day is to own a few acres on some beautiful land and to rescue as many dogs as possible. That would be a dream come true to be able to give a less fortunate pupper. I have a black Goldendoodle named Daenerys or Dani (for any Game of Thrones lovers). I hope to meet many new pups & to offer them, and you, some relief of getting the proper amounts of exercise. Thank you! :)
