Hi, I'm Brenda and dogs have been a part of my entire life. In fact, my wedding gift to my husband was a cocker spaniel puppy! Since then, I've cared for several family dogs as well as numerous foster dogs. And now that my daughters are in college, I'm looking to love on some fur babies. A passion for the outdoors, fitness and dogs make Wag! a perfect fit for me and I can't wait to work hard to keep your pet happy and healthy!

My name is Aiyana. I am a lover of dogs as my family and I have owned many dogs throughout my lifetime. I currently have a 3 year old Havanese named Kayo who enjoys playing at the dog park and long walks in my neighborhood. I’ve had a position as a dog bather in the past and I really enjoyed being able to work with all of the different breeds of dogs! I love taking walks and getting my exercise so being able to walk with a dog by my side is a big plus!

“Adventurous trail walks, individualized boarding”

Hi, I’m Lindsay. I have a strong love for all animals! I grew up caring for my Labrador retriever, and my lab/Dalmatian mix. Up until recently I had an English Bulldog who was blind and deaf, so I’m comfortable working with dogs with special needs. I’m a Certified Child Life Specialist and worked as a Behavior Specialist for the past 5 years. (For humans, but it’s a transferable skill!) I’d love to care for your pet, and give them an adventurous and compassionate experience.

Hello! Just to give you a little background on myself... my husband and I moved to North Carolina back in 2015. We have five kids ranging in ages from 22 months to 8 years old (3 red heads and 2 blondes - haha). And we have three beautiful Golden Retrievers and a grey tabby cat. I have always loved animals and grew up with them for as long as I can remember! I used to work at a Veterinary clinic as well while attending college, so very familiar with both dogs and cats and how to care for them too!! I can’t imagine a better way to earn a little extra money by being with all these lovable pups!

Hi my name is Vee. I love dogs and have been around them my whole life both owning them and volunteering at shelters. I grew up in a family of dog trainers and the best part of my week is taking the pups for a long hike and seeing how much the are enjoying themselves. I believe that exercise, sniffs, work, and belly rubs are an important part of every dog’s everyday.

“Keep carpets clean with a pet walking machine.”

Hi! I grew up with a shih tzu named Abby, and have been dog sitting since middle school. Been with Wag for multiple years now, and enjoy doing it when I’m not busy with work. I have a cat currently, so this is the best way to get my dog fix until I can afford my own! Thanks!

Hi! My name is Annaliese and I am a Freshman in college. I love animals especially dogs! I have a blue doberman named Hatley and she is a big baby. I walk her everyday so I am used to walking big dogs that pull. I also have two Siamese cats that are very curious about everything and they love to cuddle (even with Hatley). I love being outdoors and I love dogs so being a dog walker seems like a perfect job for me to do between classes and dance rehearsals.

Dog Walking in Lancaster

Lancaster is located in a metropolitan area of South Carolina, and is a quiet, quaint "garden spot" that is perfect for someone trying to get out of the busy city. Home to a plethora of parks that Fido can run around, and a great dog friendly eatery, your pup will love visiting Lancaster with you. With two veterinarians located in town, Fido will be feeling both healthy and happy while here.

Grab a bite to eat at Groucho's Deli, which is a well known deli style eatery that dishes out soups, salads, and sandwiches. They offer an outdoor patio that is dog friendly, and welcomes you pup to join you for a delicious meal.

If Fido is itching to get outside for a walk, check out the Springdale Recreation Complex. This 5-acre park offers four multi-purpose fields, a 1/3 mile track, a pond, restrooms, and a concession stand. The Country Club Park is a 1.5-acre park that includes a picnic area, basketball courts, and a nice walking path.

Get a good night's rest at the Quality Inn Lancaster. They welcome Fido to join you for an evening of relaxing before heading out on your next adventure. If you would rather spend some times in the wilderness and under the stars, check out the Andrew Jackson Campgrounds.

With all the amazing amenities and attractions that Fido can enjoy with you in Lancaster, he is never going to want to leave.

The Andrew Jackson State Park is a pawsome park filled with great amenities for Fido to check out with you. The park offers camping and picnic shelters, plus an 18-acre lake that the two of you can paddle around. If Fido loves exploring, then take advantage of the numerous hiking trails that snake throughout the area. If you're short on time, hike the Garden of the Waxhams Trail since it is only 1-mile long and will take you around the lake. Make sure to keep your pup on a leash while you are visiting this dogtastic park.
