My experience with dogs started as a child. In seventh grade, my best friend’s mom owned a dog kennel, where I volunteered throughout middle and HS. The kennel eventually switched ownership, so I got a job at a doggy daycare, but when the kennel reopened I was hired. During my time at the new facility I played many roles; trainer, groomer, manager, and everything in between. For five years I also pet sat a highly trained German Shepherd guard dog who belonged to a prominent Israeli family.

“I believe pets are family and treat them as such.”

I have walked dogs and have worked with Wag for a little over 3 years now. I have done boarding and sitting. I can give meds. I have took a pet CPR and first aid class. If you need boarding for your dog/s and if they need to be the only dog/s. Just let me know and my dogs can stay at my parents house. I look forward to caring for your furbabies. Thank you.

“Hounds follow those who feed them!”

A recent move from Fort Lauderdale, I am thrilled to be in the Brentwood area. My specialty as a dog walker is to be a reliable and trust worthy helper. I take pride in showing I have a unique bond with animals and always dreamed to make dog walking a career when I was little. Since joining Wag! I found a wonderful way to turn work into passion!

Enjoying life with my furry animal companions. Loves dogs, long walks in the park, and giving belly rubs. As a veterinary assistant I have had the opportunity to walk hundreds of different dogs, and many different breeds. My volunteer work at the local shelter taught me the value of patience, tender care, and love when working with dogs. Also, I understand the importance that a well behaved pooch is one that is happy. I would love to give your pooch the exercise and care that they deserve. Life is about adventure, and it is way more fun with a dog!

I love dogs and dogs love me! From German Shepherds and Labradors to Shih Tzus and Dachshunds, dogs of all shapes and sizes have a special place in my heart! As a School Crossing Guard at West End Middle School (one of the busiest school intersections in Nashville), I am used to juggling rambunctious kids, dogs, and morning hour traffic to make sure everyone stays safe. I would love to be entrusted with your furry family member and have an opportunity to meet their needs!

I have been a dog owner for the past 40+ years, having both small and large dogs and often multiple dogs at a time. I can't imagine my home without a dog. Two of the things I care the most about in this world are dogs and helping people. I was so pleased to find WAG, where I can combine both of these passions. I look forward to caring for your fur-baby.

East McEwen/Avalon is a beautiful area with a humble community and easy access to the highway. Located just north is Marcella Vivrette Smith Park, a largely forested area that’s absolutely picturesque. There are nearly nine miles of hiking trails in this park, all shaded by natural trees to make each and every walk pleasant. Little Harpeth River runs through this park, keeping it lush and green. Because of an abundance of wildlife in the area, dogs that are inclined to chase shouldn’t be taken through this park. Be sure to keep your pups leashed, as this area is not fenced in. You’re sure to have a wooftastic time!
