I’ve grown up around dogs and want to help out responsible pet owners when at work or away. I will provide on leash walks or runs when necessary and give it a fun break during the day. The dogs I have cared for have ranged from small to large with varying energy levels. I have cared for senior dogs that require oral medications and those recovering from surgeries. I will be home full-time with a wide open schedule to help you out with pet care. Together we can give your dog it’s best life!

“Intuitive & patient - great for skittish pups!”

I do particularly well with nervous or anxious dogs, since I seem to know how much space and structure they need to feel safe and loved. I've done sitting and walking for pet parents who swear, "My dog doesn't like anyone!" just to discover that their pups really like me. I'm very patient and great at reading canine body language, so I inevitably win the trust of the dogs I encounter.

“Energetic, easy going dog walker”

I strongly believe walks are the best way to build a friendly, trusting bond with a dog. I have an anxious minpin back home who I would walk twice daily to help ease his anxiety and get his daily exercise in. Our walks ended up being both of our favorite time of day! I'd love to share that special time with some new canine friends around Bellingham! I used to volunteer at a doggy daycare, and have experience with dogs of all sizes. I promise to keep your pup happy and active while I'm with them!

Hi! For starters, I love being around dogs, always have and always will! I can't afford to have my own big slobbery fur baby right now, so this would help my puppy fever! I'm very outgoing and I love going on walks so why not make it more enjoyable with your furry friend, that way they're getting the exercise and you get the after walk snuggles! I just moved to the La Conner area but am willing to branch out towards Mount Vernon/ Burlington area.

“I love them all; big, small, old, and energized!”

Hi, I'm Auri and I recently moved to the Bellingham area after living all over Washington state and Alaska. I grew up with a black lab always in the house, and miss our current lab, Zeppelin, dearly while away from my hometown, Juneau, Alaska. Fortunately, I currently live in a house with an Australian Shepherd so I still have a furry companion around when I need one. I have loved my time working for Wag! and walking all types of dogs.

“Keeping pets safe, healthy, and happy for 19 years”

Hello! My name is Jaclyn, and I grew up and worked for a dog kennel for my entire childhood (my family owned one). On the kennel, I helped to board, train, breed, and raise up to 30+ dogs at a time. Because of this I am skilled in handling almost all dog breeds, ages, and sizes. I am also currently progressing my education in veterinary medicine at a Washington institution.

Hi! My name is Killian and I just finished college in NY and have returned home to the beautiful PNW in a house with a big fenced-in backyard. I love all animals and crave being around them! I have been described as a dog-whisperer and had two dogs of my own growing up. If it weren’t for traveling often, I would rescue as many dogs as I could take care of! I look forward to taking care of your pup!
