“Not to brag, but I can make tails wag!”

In 2020 I worked at a small pet store and walked dogs at an animal shelter where I used calm, assertive body language to establish trust quickly with new dogs and read their energies to make our interactions a positive experience. I am an experienced Wag walker and anyone who has worked with me can attest to my calm, but energetic personality and professional work ethic. I am covid cautious and fully vaccinated. I look forward to meeting your pups!

“A walk a day keeps the vet away!”

Hello pet parents! I have worked at a dog daycare where I was responsible for 40+ dogs at a time. Some of my responsibilities included watching all of the dogs to make sure that all the dogs are safe and happy, making feeding schedules, administering medications, and checking the dogs over for injuries. I'm very comfortable walking dogs of all ages and sizes. Old dogs or dogs with special needs or medications are no problem either. I would love to take care of your pup!

Hello, my name is Kim Denis and I LOVE dogs of all sizes. I have had at least one dog in my family for the majority of my life. My husband and I currently own two dogs. My husband and I fostered dogs for about two years. While I enjoyed doing this it was always tough letting dogs go when we had fostered the dogs for several months. I am also willing to dog sit.

Dog Walking in Appleton

Appleton, Wisconsin is a city surrounded by plenty of bodies of water, wooded areas, and recreational parks. This makes it a great location to enjoy with Fido, Kitterina, or those famous family Ferrets, for the estimated 12,000 pet owners living here to enjoy with their pets. There is also plenty to do and see for those just passing through.

One of the best attractions in Appleton is their fantastic dog park. The Outagamie County Dog Park is a perfect place to let your dog blow off some steam. There are 17 acres total, divided into three separate sections. The first section is a large, open field for playing fetch or chase. The second is partially wooded and has walking trails to explore and sniff out. The last is a special area for the little breeds so that they can play safely.

Because Wisconsin gets pretty burly in the winter, there is a special dog park open only in the winter, so you can continue to let your dog exercise, no matter what the conditions are outside! It is just over four and a half acres; so plenty big enough for a good play day. The dog park also hosts regular events and meetings for people who attend the dog park.

If you are only passing through Appleton, Comfort Suites and La Quinta Inn and Suites, both offer comfy stays. They have clean, modern rooms and best of all, they are pet-friendly. They allow up to two pets to join you on your stay.

For meal time, you may have to drive a short distance if you want Fido to join you. Just 6 miles away are two lovely restaurants that welcome your furry friends. The Source Public House uses farm fresh ingredients and has a different menu occasionally based on what is available on local farms. Their regular menu consists of healthy choices and farm fresh meat entrees. Your well-behaved pet is allowed outside with you. The WeatherVane is another excellent choice. They offer delicious breakfast choices such as omelettes, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, and more. Once again, they allow your pet to join you on the terrace.

Appleton is a fantastic city to visit with your pet; there is plenty to do and see, and everyone will make you and your pet feel right at home.
