Hello! I've been with Wag! for over two years now but I've been walking my own dogs for nearly two decades. I adore all dogs, but small pups -- like my Beagle, Clover, and my Tibetan Terrier, Penny -- are my favorite. I look forward to walking your dog soon!

Hi there! My name is Sabrina and I have always had a deep passion for animals. I love to work with them in any way that I can and I especially love dogs! I've had my own pup (Gracie Lou) for over 10 years now and I regularly volunteer with animal organizations in my free time. I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of dogs with varying needs over many years. I truly love and appreciate all animals for who they are. I currently am pursuing a career in animal energy healing and take a calm loving approach with all of the animals I see. My ultimate goal is to love your pupper with lots of positive energy and make sure they are safe, happy, and healthy! Some notes on my walking style: I typically use a sturdy leash with an added traffic handle and LED light for added safety, I use eco-friendly compostable poop bags, and all pups will receive some TLC and water at the end of our walk!

“Green-haired friend to every pet!”

I walk and care for dogs / pets professionally for 14+ years. I’ve loved animals all my life! As a kid I would go knock on my neighbors’ doors and ask to walk their dogs for fun, which led me to pet-sitting and dog-walking jobs and volunteering with my local animal shelter. To every service I bring a can do attitude, knowledge gained from a degree in animal behavior and physiology, and first aid certification just in case. I'm fit, friendly, and would love to be your dog's new pal!
