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.

I have been around animals my whole life. As a child I studied dog behavior and training which helped give me knowledge on the proper ways to handle and interact with them. I have an excellent understanding of how dogs work and I feel I and know well how to care for them in a variety of situations. I have cared for many dogs both of my own and of others'.

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 Mercer Island

Mercer Island is a scenic islet in the southern tip of Lake Washington. This quaint community is home to an affluent bunch and has the fifth highest per-capita income in Washington. This island provides a natural escape for furry locals to flee the hustle and bustle of Seattle life. With over 50 miles of trails, there is no wonder owners and pups alike adore this beautiful slice of paradise! Six vets within 10 miles keep resident pups in top-shape and feeling their best. 

Luther Burbank Park is a favorite with humans and canines from near and far. This park is home to 77 acres of pristine wetlands and 135 species of birds! There is an off-leash area toward the northern tip of the island, as well as a dog-friendly swimming beach. The park boasts an impressive number of features for the whole family, including a zip line, playground, tennis courts, boat ramps, and public fishing piers. Dogs are not allowed in the public swimming areas from the first of May to the end of September. Pups are welcome all other times of the year, but must be leashed when outside the off-leash areas.

Wildwood Park is located at the south end of the island and is home to another popular off-leash area.  This no-frills park is a great place for a leash-free romp and a picnic with your pooch. This spot provides dogs with lots of stimulation and opportunities for socialization. 

Feeling hungry from all the off-leash time? Sit down at one of The Islander’s seven pet-friendly outdoor tables for a swanky, Fido-approved dinner. This chic eatery has something for everyone and provides both gluten-free and vegetarian options. The Dungeness crab dip is a favorite, made with goat cheese and artichokes. This restaurant also features a full-service bar and a huge selection of micro-brews. You will love unwinding with a small-batch craft beer and your favorite fur baby.

South Park is home to the West Crest Dog Park, a quaint 4-acre bark park with a lot to offer. Local pups love running through the open spaces and lounging in the shade of the park’s many trees.

When Fido has had his fill of fetch, cool down with a local craft beer at the Tin Dog Brewing Company. This spot is truly a dog favorite and even hosts dog birthday parties! Enjoy a Belgian-inspired artisanal ale at one of their pet-friendly outdoor tables. This joint loves their pets, and your furry fellow will be no exception!
