Hi! My name is Craig. I grew up in a very pet friendly family. We always had dogs and cats, and this continued once I was out on my own. I had Siberian Husky (in Florida!!), and a good ole fashioned Heinz 57 mutt. Little bit of Shepherd, little bit of Chow, and a whole lot of hound dog. I took them both through obedience training and even did some obedience trials. They’ve passed on, and I miss them like crazy. Currently I only have cats, but love to be around dogs. This app is a great way to do that, and help out others as well as get a little exercise. I look forward to meeting and walking your pooch!

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!
