“Now in Lake City and surrounding areas!”

I love dogs! I always have, ever since I was little. I've done pet walking and sitting for friends and family, as well as working in a Doggy Daycare/boarding facility, accepting dogs of all sizes, breeds and temperaments. I would love to become your pups second best friend (next to you, of course) and I can't wait to meet them!

Hey there, my name is Ashleigh and thanks for considering me as your dog's walking companion! I am a college graduate who is absolutely in love with dogs of all ages and sizes. I am a frequently requested dog sitter and have owned three lovely dogs of my own! In my experience as a dogsitter, I have been trusted with walking, feeding, and properly giving pet's their medicine. My love for dogs stretches back to childhood when my need to take care of every stray that passed through our rural neighborhood had my parents telling their friends that I would be running a shelter one day. I truly believe dogs are a gift to us all and I look forward to meeting and walking your pup soon! :)

Hi there! My name is Tara and I walk in the Bellingham and Ferndale areas. I was born here and recently moved back after living in LA for 5 years. I have grown up with and owned dogs my entire life, including multiple labs, a Tibetan spaniel, Shih-tzus, and a Jack Russell. I currently have a 2 year old golden retriever and a 4 month old yellow lab, as well as 3 cats :) Animals are where I find my serenity, and combined with exercise it’s my favorite thing to do. I have trained my current dogs, past dogs, and multiple others. I am comfortable walking multiple dogs at a time, no matter the size. I am also Pet CPR/First Aid certified. I understand that all dogs are different in many ways, and I hope to have the chance to be your next walker and get to know your pups!

“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.

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.
