Hi, I'm Monica! I have loved dogs since I was a child. My husband and I have 2 sheepadoodles named Brodie and Hayden. Walking is my favorite way to stay active, especially when I can bring the pups along and have them burn some energy too. I have experience taking care of my friends' dogs when they are busy or traveling. I am a 1st grade teacher with plenty of time this summer to make sure your dog is taken care of and exercised! I can't wait to meet you and your pup!

As a seasoned Wag Walker my #1 Goal is to ensure your dog(s) and YOU have a super experience. I am a seasoned mature dog walker and care taker I also assist with any notes for feeding and playing for Puppies or Elderly or Sick dogs. Some dogs don't want to walk they need T.L.C. and that is just fine or working on challenges like anxiety and training challenges. I specialize in big breeds and puppies as well as seniors. Available for extra t.l.c. time too like massaging them and pets and love. Pick me as your preferred WAG walker to allow me ample time to answer you about my schedule and provide YOU with Video, notes and suggestions for your dog while you are gone or at work.

Dog Walking in Lorena

Lorena is a small Texas city on the outskirts of Waco with a small-town, homey vibe. Families and pup owners can enjoy McBrayer Park, a small public area for sports games and community events in Lorena, but you’ll need to venture a few miles north to Hewitt for the closest vet clinic and about 15 miles to get to Waco for some dog-friendly dining and fun.

Waco has several dining spots for pups and their owners, including chains and some locally-owned restaurants that you and your dog are sure to go mutts for. Check out Health Camp, a retro-style spot that’s famous for its malts and burgers. Or, head to Shorty’s Pizza Shack for regular and specialty pizzas in a casual, fun atmosphere. Both spots have outdoor dining areas for pooches!

In about 30 minutes, you can get to Temple, Texas, which also has several restaurants that welcome dogs and off-leash dog parks. If you don’t mind a longer drive or are heading toward Austin, consider stopping in Georgetown, which is about an hour away from Lorena. Georgetown Bark Park offers a pawfect place for Sparky to play off their leash and has some fun agility equipment to keep pups occupied.

You won’t struggle to find paw-friendly dining and play options outside of Lorena no matter how far you feel like traveling!
