“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!

Dog Walking in Oshkosh

The city of Oshkosh lays on the convergence of Lake Butte des Morts and Lake Winnebago, connected by the Fox River. During the 1900s, the city brought in plenty of businesses, like sawdust mills and brewing companies. One beer company coined the motto "Oh Gosh, it's good.", inspired by the city's name. What's so good about the city nowadays it the number of dog-friendly dog parks, trails, activities and six animal hospitals loated within. 

The Winnebago County Dog Park is also known as the Best Friends Dog Park, and rests in the northern part of the city. The area is impressive when it comes to dog parks, with over 20 acres of fenced-in grassy fields. There are multiple areas with trails, open space, and shady trees. The entrance has a double-gate, and there are other amenities like dog-sized water fountains, trash bins, benches, picnic tables, and clean-up bags.

Rainbow Park is a gorgeous space, with rolling hills and a scenic view of the Fox River and Lake Butte des Morts. The park has a .5-mile trail, shaded sitting area, a pavilion, boat launches, boat docks, fishing docks, a playground, an enclosed rollerskating rink, and lots of areas to run around and play! The park is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and even ha water fountains and clean-up stations.
