Hello, I'm Ron. My wife and I are the proud owners of Meli, a 5 year old labradoodle, that we walk frequently. I have house sat and cared for multiple dogs for over 20 years. My thought is that the dogs well being is my highest priority. My wife tells me that I haven't met a dog I didn't like, and she's right! I'd love to help you with your pooch. Dogs rule, by Wagging!

“Let’s go on an adventure!”

I have always loved dogs, all breeds! I have had doggie companions as long as I can remember. I have worked with dogs of all different personalities. I have transported them across the country and back. I believe that they’re all special little souls with their own personalities and needs. I view getting to spend time with these wonderful little beings as a fun adventure. I look forward to meeting and spending time with these wonderful new friends.

Hi, I'm Alice, former vet tech and lifelong animal lover. I have shared my life with many dogs and could not imagine a life without them! I've had experience with animals of many species while working as a vet tech, but also as a volunteer at an animal shelter, dog walker, and pet sitter. Like people, dogs have their own personalities, preferences, and quirks, and I enjoy getting to know them and figuring out what makes them happy. I believe that pets make human lives better, so it is our job to return the love and make sure they are as happy and healthy as possible.

“Looking forward to meeting your pup(s)!”

Hi, I’m Shelby and I love walking dogs❤️. I’ve been a dog-walker/pet-sitter for over 5 years and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I enjoy the flexibility it gives me since I’m quite active in the cat/kitten foster community and often have bottle babies that need to be fed every few hours.
