Whether it's a walk around the neighborhood or taking a trip to the dog park, I'm always looking forward to my walks. I have experience with walking 50 different breeds of all sizes, and it's a pleasure meeting new pups. The more the merrier. The time I get to spend with a dog, young or not so young, small or not so small, makes the day that much better.

Hello, I'm Tiffany! I started dog walking and sitting around 10 years ago and have been in love with animals all my life! I just moved back from NC where I was a Veterinary Assistant for a year and loved it. Being a Vet Assistant I have experience with dogs of all sizes and understand the value and importance of excellent animal care and health. As I return back to the DMV area it is my hope to pursue my passion of Art/Entrepreneurship while still making caring for animals a priority in my life! I would love the opportunity to care for your pet giving them the love, fun and exercise that you expect and they deserve! I will make sure that your Wag! experience is an amazing one!

I'm onto a new career and am a nursing student. I would love to walk and take care of your pup. I’ve been walking dogs for a few years now, and I can’t imagine not interacting with them frequently! I have a three year old beagle who we rescued in 2018. He’s gone through extensive training, so I have an array of knowledge about handling various types of dogs. I can take your dog out for a hustle if s/he is high energy, or I can let him/her sniff around and enjoy life. I’m flexible!
