Hi, I’m Kim. I’m very excited to be part of the Wag team! Dogs have always played an important part of my life. Even during times when I didn’t personally own one, there was always a special dog or 2 that a friend would share with me. My experiences have been varied with dogs of all ages and sizes. Just like people, dogs have their own special personalities. I believe this makes for great fun to spend time with and get to know their unique behavior. Taking walks in Seattle neighborhoods is one of my most favorite things to do – especially when accompanied with a dog! I promise to take loving care of your dog so you will have a happy and healthy dog when you are home!

“Rain/shine & day/night I’ll walk them anytime! <3”

Hey there! I am a pet owner myself; I have three dogs that I love. Junior a lap/pit mix, Missy a Staffy and Piper a German Shep./Boxer/pit mix. All high energy and well behaved. I have been around animals my whole life. Currently when I’m not walking dogs I can be found either working at Petco or for a school. I have experience with various breeds, age and temperament. I believe myself to be honest and trusting and treat each animal as if it were my own, respectfully and loving.

Hi, I am John. I have always had a warm spot in my heart for dogs and would love to help keep your dog happy and healthy, providing his or her daily walk with Wag! I grew up and have lived with many different breeds of dogs, from Miniature Pinchers and Poodles to Boxers and Sheep Dogs. I have experience as a veterinary assistant, a shelter volunteer, and I have cared for a litter of nine healthy puppies from birth until adoption. I am responsible, knowledgable and clear-headed. I understand that dogs are as different from one another as people, and look forward to meeting your special friend!

I am 64 years old and love dogs. My wife and I had six sons and they loved our dogs that we had as our family grew up together. Buster was our Golden and Lucky was our Jack Russell. Those dogs were members of our family and I went on many walks with them through the years. I remember one important fact about dogs, they will always treat you like a King or Queen no matter how tough their day was. I love dogs because they have shown love to me.

Dog Walking in Kirkland

Kirkland is the 6th biggest city in King County and the 12th biggest in Washington. The city is built around Lake Washington and provides more than 25 public parks so the community can use the lakefront. It should also be known for its love of dogs because there are close to 18,000 living there.

If you like hiking, you can check out Saint Edward State Park, which has 25 miles of trails above Lake Washington with amazing views of the coastline. There are some climbs and descents that can be rough on a beginner, but for the most part, it is an easy and pleasant walk through the woods.

Paradise Valley has 13 miles of trails in a hidden paradise in the middle of the city. Among the forest and wetlands, you will likely see some deer, coyote, and even bears. Some of the trees you will see on the trail are fir, hemlock, oak, cedar, cottonwood, dogwood and willow; and there are plenty of wildflowers and other vegetation along Bear Creek.

Jasper’s Dog Park is the perfect place to let Fido off his leash to play with other dogs while you relax. There is a lot of room and grass to run, and there are benches for the humans. Jasper’s is fully fenced-in and has a wood chip surface. Plenty of friendly dog owners to chat with while you watch them play.

Jasper's Dog Park, located in this Kirkland neighborhood, is a large, off-leash dog park divided into two wood chip covered enclosures. As it is entirely fenced-in, your pup can have complete unleashed fun hanging out with the neighborhood pack. Smaller and shy pups can play in the small dog section, while larger pups can roam around the North end play area. There is also a small trail system within the off-leash park that supplies ample poop bags and trash cans. Big or small, furry or bald, all canine companions can quench their thirst at the pet-approved water fountain.

In the Moss Bay neighborhood, you'll be surrounded by dog-friendly restaurants! At The Flatstick Pub, a waterfront pub famous for its indoor 9-hole mini golf course, is so dog-lov'in, they insist that you bring your furry best for their “Yappy Hour” inside the bar. For Feriton's best burgers, you'll want to visit The Slip where they welcome canines in their outdoor patio. If your Cocker Spaniel is a huge fan of Lady and the Tramp, bring her to Ristorante Paradiso, a dog-friendly Italian restaurant that welcomes leashed dogs at outdoor tables in the summertime. The Cactus Restaurant offers Tex-Mex and Mexican dishes, while Hectors is a local breakfast spot. Both welcomes your dog on their outdoor patios during the summer as well.

Bridle Trails State Park offers 482-acres, and is known to some as "the wilderness in the city.” Offering a 28-mile hiking and horseback riding trail system, this state park welcomes equestrians, hikers, and leashed dogs. Since the park is used primarily by horses and their riders, owners are asked to keep their pups leashed and under control. Be sure to clean up after your dog here too! Hike the trails, and enjoy the dense, mature tree growth, as well as the small picnic and BBQ area near the horse show arenas.

Waverly Beach Park, a 2.75-acres waterfront park on the shores of Lake Washington, is an oasis with an enclosed swimming beach and boat dock that is truly a hidden gem. The picture perfect place for a stroll, Waverly Beach Park boasts sprawling verdant lawns, a playground, picnic tables, benches, and restrooms. For pups that want to work on their fur line, the "U" shaped sunbathing dock is a heavenly place to relax, unwind, and soak in the sun, so long as dogs stay leashed. Pups can cool off with a dip at the far end of the pier, across from the designated beach area, or lounge in the shade of one of the many stately park trees.

For some amazing outdoor adventure, head to the northern end of Kirkland to Saint Edward State Park. This 326 acre park includes 3,000 feet of Lake Washington shoreline. Hike the trails, or set up a picnic in the popular river rock alcove that locals call the Grotto. Along the way, you are sure to run into the history of the area, which includes the brick building that once housed the Pacific Northwest’s first Catholic seminary. Today, the park is enjoyed by hikers, bikers, boaters, and dogs. In the park, your pup needs to remain leashed, and be sure to always clean up after him.
