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.

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!
