“Truly love all animals”

I grew up around all types/temperaments/sizes of dogs and have always had an affinity and love for all animals. I have my bachelors in Animal Science. My compassion in life is animals, especially dogs. I love getting to know a dog’s unique personality, their quirks and what makes them happy. I consider myself to be responsible, honest, respectful, and considerate. My dogs are my babies so I know how important your dogs are to you, and I always treat/love every dog I meet like my own babies!

Hello! My name is Anita Keene. I've grown up around dogs my entire life. I've been the proud owner of two dogs since I've been out on my own. My current dog is a Pekingese. I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education, however; 5 years ago our family moved to South Carolina and my preschool in Michigan is now managed by a director. I'm still the owner and manage the preschool, but the day to day stuff is her responsibility. I've got some free time on my hands and I love to walk (walk my dog everyday) and I love dogs. What a great opportunity it is to be a Wag Walker- combining both things I LOVE! Frequently, I've had the pleasure of taking care of family member's dogs while they've been away on trips. I'm excited for the chance to become friends with your dogs, as well!

“Help is on it’s way! Arf”

Hi! My name is Martha. My dog passed away last year and it broke my heart in pieces. I started caring for dogs when my children said that maybe it will fill a voId. I’ve been caring for dogs on a referral basis and now want to expand. I’m very athletic, so no problem with exercise. I’m patient and can adapt to most any situation. Also, I probably should have been a dog photographer because I will send you as many photos as you would like! I do look forward to meeting all of you!
