Hi I'm Trevor, when I was a kid, my favorite thing in the world was getting off the bus and seeing my Rottweiler, hunter greet me. He was the first dog my family ever owned and I fell in love with dogs ever since then. I'm excited to get to meet new dogs, and new people as well!

My name is Cooper Thomas and I have recently moved to Austin and am currently working on establishing myself as a model and performer. I have owned a toy fox terrier and catahoula leaopard dog, but my current roommate did not want to have a dog in our apartment so this was my idea of a workaround to get to hang out with some sweet puppers. I am excited to explore Austin while taking these lovely doggos on walks.

“A walker you can trust in a dog-eat-dog world.”

I'm 25, and I live in Round Rock. I've had/taken care of dogs my whole life. I love all animals, but especially dogs and cats, because of what great companions they make for us. In the past, I've also volunteered at the animal shelter and garnered some petcare experience there. I'll always take care of your animals, as if they were my own. I've walked/looked after over 500 pets with Wag. Thank you so much for your trust and faith in me!

Dog Walking in Elgin

You know what they say --everything's bigger in Texas -- and that, of course, applies to the pawesome pet friendliness in the city of Elgin, Texas! At the heart of the state, Elgin natives enjoy a myriad of community events that include the doggos. There are movies in the park at Elgin Memorial Park, where you and Fido could catch a projected viewing of Air Bud. Or, you can grab the leash and take a stroll through the historic downtown area and see the sights. Elgin has a rich history, and the city owes its existence to a major flood of the Colorado River when the city was originally built in 1869. The river flooded, preventing workers from building the railroad where it was originally supposed to run ten miles east of where Elgin now sits.

Pet parents love this place! There are 3 veterinarians right in town, 6 beautiful on-leash parks, and a pet shop where you can get everything you'll need for your precious pup. There is also a doggie adoption center in Elgin that helps strays find loving homes. On top of this, dog owners have a handful of restaurants they can bring their dog to join them as they eat sprinkled throughout the neighborhoods of Elgin. There's nothing to "paw-nder" when it comes to wagging tails in this city!

Do you let your dog chomp on the bone after a steak meal? Then he'll love visiting Old McDade, a few miles east of Elgin. The neighborhood hosts El Maguey Mexican Restaurant, where you can get a steak served three different ways. Just make sure you don't give your pup the t-bone! El Maguey also has a veterinarian menu for the herbivore doggie owners, with delicious entrees like a bean tostada or cheese burritos. Of course, no trip to a great Mexican restaurant with Fido is complete without getting fried ice cream for dessert! Bone Appetit!

The 14-acre park used to be the site of the Memorial Hospital, but has since been demolished and refurbished into a park full of fun activities for you and Fido. You can fish in the pond, hike one of the walking trails, or grill out at the picnic tables. Even the lazier canines will love this place as they relax in the shade at Morris Memorial.

Does your dog love soccer? If he's a fan of the Dallas Rush soccer team, your dog might get a kick out of watching the soccer players on the fields at the Shenandoah Park & Green Belt. The 40-acre park has five soccer fields where Fido can watch all the excitement. When there are no games happening, you can walk your dog on-leash with the grass underneath Fido's feet! If your dog likes to sniff out the flora and fauna, there are also plenty of walking trails in Shenandoah. Just grab the leash and head out, tails wagging!
