Hi! I'm Kate. I'm a freelance writer who recently finished grad school. I'm looking for a little extra income and a few energetic pups to exercise with, so Wag is awesome! I started pet sitting and dog walking in my late teens, and I'm the proud godmother of Wayne and Ginsberg, a monstrous mutt and a small furry mutt respectively.

“All dogs are good dogs”

Hi there! I’m a huge animal lover. I volunteer for a local rescue group, Wolf Trap Animal Rescue, where I have fostered puppies, helped w/ “in-take" events, and even adopted a few fur babies myself including my pup/best-friend, Roo. I've walked dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds and can be flexible. I have lots of patience and understand some dogs need time to warm up to or gain trust in someone new. I have lots of love to give and understand your puppy's safety and happiness is a top priority!

I have loved dogs since I was a child and get along with them better than most people. I have had at least one dog (if not more) for as long as I can remember. Simply being around them makes me happy. I have done pet sitting and dog walking for years in my hometown. I just recently moved to Atlanta in Aug of 2018. Wag seems like the perfect way to explore the area, make some new furry friends, and earn extra cash at the same time.

Hi! My names Jessie and I am from Virginia. I have always loved dogs and while my older brothers always wanted a dog it wasn't until I came along that we got our first one. I have had three dogs, one cocker spaniel, and two miniature Austrailian shepherds. Sadly today only one of my mini Aussies remains, her name is Lily Bear and she is absolutely spoiled. I have the most experience with medium to small dogs but I am confident in my ability to handle larger dogs also. I am a current student at Virginia Tech were I am studying Clinical Neuroscience. In between my semesters at tech, I plan to be using wag and making sure every dog gets their outside time!
