Hi! My name is Thea, and I love dogs. I’ve had dogs my whole life including rescues that took a bit of TLC to warm up to us, have been dog sitting family and friends dogs regularly, volunteered with various shelters and vet school dogs and overall I am just super enthusiastic about dogs!

“I’ll treat your dog like my own! <3”
Hi! I’m Tyler, a proud owner of a 7-year old cattle dog mix named Ella and a graduate student. Since I adopted Ella, I have been constantly assisting my friends, family, and colleagues with their dogs in a variety of capacities. I’m experienced in both dog sitting/boarding, training, and the general care associated with being responsible for a dog. Ella is a cattle dog mix, which means she needs a lot of exercise to stay happy — and I love doing it with her, or any dog for that matter.

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.

Hello! My name is Jessica, and I am currently in my last year of high school. I will be studying at VirginiaTech this upcoming fall semester and will be double-majoring in economics and international policy. Growing-up around family and close neighbors with dogs, I have had experience handling and caring for dogs for a significant portion of my life. I have dogsat for dogs with special needs and helped dogs of busy local owners get the exercise they need! I am familiar with the area since I go on runs in surrounding neighborhoods often. I will make sure your dog gets the outdoor time and care they need, and I look forward to meeting you and your dog.
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!
Hello! My name is Kelsie and I am excited to take care of your pups. From sitting, walking, to boarding - I am willing and excited to help. For most of my life I have been caring for animals in some capacity - whether I am checking on my neighbors animals while they are away at work, or spending weeks being a full-time caretaker. I am confident that whatever your needs are, I will be able to deliver. I have experience across many different breeds and animal temperaments. I also have experience caring for animals who need special care, such as animals with disabilities and those that need routine medication administration. In addition, my service does not have to be exclusive to your dogs! I am very fond of cats (I have 4) and would love to take care of all your animal needs.I look forward to the opportunity to serve your animal friends.
Hi my name is Sabrina and I am a college student. I love animals. I’ve taken care of dogs, cats, horses, fish, and cows. My best friend is my boxer and she is 12 years old. I’ve enjoyed taking her on walks at parks or park trails. She not a fan of other dogs so I have experience with how to avoid situations with other dogs/animals that I know she will not get along with. I always make sure to have water on me on hot days for her to drink so she doesn’t get dehydrated. I want to make sure they are taken care of from start to finish.
Sitting pretty in the lee of Pearis Mountain and overlooking the New River, there’s no denying that Pearisburg, VA is a beautiful place indeed. The pleasing scenery doesn’t stop at the natural wonders of the area, though -- all seventeen of the painstakingly preserved buildings in the town’s historic district are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Giles County Courthouse, with its wings and portico, is particularly impressive! Pearisburg’s dedication to preserving its heritage is just one example of its strong community spirit -- the town also makes sure to foster the artistic talent of its citizens and is home to several arts festivals. Wander around the charming downtown area and you and your pooch can take in the many murals celebrating the community and its history!
Pearisburg doesn’t have its own dog park, but you and your four-legged friend are still sure to sniff out something to do! You’ll find a community park here that’s both scenic and relatively canine-friendly. If your buddy loves hiking, you’re in luck -- Pearisburg is a designated Appalachian Trail community, and you’ll find some furrifically fur-friendly hiking options in town. You’ll need to drive a little to find a fenced area where your furball can run free, but don’t worry -- you’ll find some pawesome dog parks not far away!
Whitt-Riverbend Park might not have its own off-leash area, but this Pearisburg gem is still a real mutts-visit! The waterside paved trail is a grrreat spot for a sedate, on-leash stroll. Whitt-Riverbend Park is also home to the River Bottom Trail, a tree-shaded, one-mile loop with little to no incline -- so this trek is suitable for everyone, from the most athletic animals to the slowest pooches! You’ll also find several interesting sculptures by local artists dotted around the park’s twenty-eight acres. Be sure to bring waste bags to help keep the area clean!
With Mill Creek Falls Nature Park just a stone’s throw away from Pearisburg in Narrows, you’d have to be barking mad not to check it out! Mill Creek is known as one of the best places in Virginia to hike with your dog, and it’s easy to see why -- the park’s 140 acres contain miles and miles of trails to sniff and explore. Fitter furry friends looking for a challenge may be tempted to try the steep waterfall trail, but the terrain isn’t suitable for dogs -- try one of the trails leading to Jefferson Forest instead, which feature majestic natural woodland, interesting rock formations, and serious inclines.
If you and your pooch are looking for a serious workout, why not try hiking to Angel’s Rest from Pearisburg via the Appalachian Trail? The inclines on this 3.5-mile out-and-back hike vary from the steep to the positively punishing, with wooded wonderland slowly giving way to real mountain terrain. Once you get to the top, though, you and your buddy might decide that the views were worth the trek -- you’ll be rewarded with panoramic vistas over the New River and Willburn valleys. Be sure to bring your own bags and water, and make sure you and your pup are fit enough for the climb!
Blacksburg Dog Park is a bit of a drive from Pearisburg, but make no bones about it -- once your buddy gets through those double gates, you’ll be glad you took the trip! This park is a pup’s paradise -- there’s space enough for even the most rambunctious doggo to run around and burn off their excess energy. There’s also a separate small dog area, so your pooch can play and socialize no matter their size! Not only that, but the park is well-shaded by mature trees, and there’s even a small pool for your best friend to splash about and cool down in. Bags, toys, and water are provided.
Sparky’s Run Dog Park in Radford might be a bit no-frills, but it’d still be a huge faux paw not to visit! The park isn’t the largest, but there’s still plenty of room for your pooch to run around and tire themselves out in, or for a spirited game of catch or tug-of-war. Like the dog park in Blacksburg, there’s a separate small dog area, and bags and water are provided. Careful, though -- the park’s surface is mostly dirt, so it can get quite muddy after it rains! You might want to bring a towel for post-play clean-up.
