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 animals since I was a child and get along with them better than most people. I have had at least one fur baby (if not more) for as long as I can remember. I have done pet sitting and dog walking of all kinds for the last eight years and have experience with all breeds and personalities. I am a firm believer that every dog is a good dog. It is just a matter of figuring out their personality and what makes them comfortable/happy. I'd love a chance to make some new furry friends!

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!

Dog Walking in Christiansburg

From the sight of tails wagging, you know your dog's leash is the most important thing in the pet-friendly town of Christiansburg, Virginia. The town has a history dating all the way back to the 1600s when the first European colonists arrived in Virginia. George Washington himself was known to visit Christiansburg in these early pioneer years. The country's first president more than likely brought his French Hounds with him! Christiansburg has developed into a modern prairie-town with a collection of taverns, locally-owned eateries and boutiques, and historic districts. Tucked along the New River in a valley that shares the same name, Christiansburg is a great place to live with your furry best friend!

Dog owners here won't have a 'ruff' time keeping their dog happy and healthy. Pet owners have their choice between seven veterinarians, four pet groomers, and three pet shops. If you like to get outdoors for Fido's exercise, you can head to Huckleberry Trail. Named after the huckleberries that grow along the pathway, this eight-mile trail sweeps through the North River Valley. After some hiking, you and Fido can hang out at one of the 12 pet-friendly restaurants that have outside seating area for the 'doggos!' Just grab the leash and head out!
