"Thanks for walking Gibbs and the feedback. I'm happy he loves home so much, but am also glad he's experiencing walks with new people to broaden his horizons. We'll find an even better collar so he won't pull as much. Little stinker. :) Thanks!"

"As a first-time user of Wag I was a little apprehensive about starting out, but I contacted Lisa to say hello and she was very prompt in getting back to me, understanding, and put me at ease about having someone brand new walk my pup Quin. ...The timing worked out really well and I actually had the pleasure of meeting Lisa on my arrival home and as she was leaving. She was so kind, and it was clear that she really enjoyed spending time with Quin. :) I'd definitely recommend her to other walkers!"

"Thank you, Lily, for taking such great care of Gibbs! I'm super impressed. You were on time, and Gibbs seemed very happy and calm after the walk. Plus, you got him to "go" on the walk, which is something he doesn't do for us "
