Hello! My name is Terri and I am married with 2 grown children and of course an animal lover! One of the reasons I have become a Wag walker is knowing firsthand the times a pet owner cannot always be there for their pet. I want them to feel that it is okay if this happens and I am very pleased to help!

Dog Walking in Waukesha

Wisconsin is known for being a cold, crisp, and outdoorsy state. This calls the perfect conditions for pet owners everywhere. Luckily for Waukesha, there are plenty of activities to enjoy with a furry friend.

If your pet needs to burn off some energy and you fancy some scenery, talk a long jaunt down the Glacial Drumlin State Trail. You will be able to take in all of the lush forests, historic bridges and tunnels, and fresh air all the while enjoying the company of your four-legged friends. The trail is also horseback-friendly if you prefer to explore that way.

If you are in Waukesha for a visit, you will want a pet-friendly room so you can snuggle up with your furry friend on the brisk Wisconsin nights. A great choice is the Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel. Not only are their rooms clean and refreshingly simply decorated; they will welcome you and your pet with a bag of goodies and have pet beds and food at request. This hotel will do everything to make you, and your pet feel right at home.

While there aren’t many human eatery choices, your pet will be most excited to visit the Petlicious Dog Bakery. This shop makes all of their own dog food and of course, treats. They also have a small variety of cat products for feline lovers. Who can resist giving their pet a special snack? When you get hungry, try Northstar American Bistro. They serve high-quality American dishes, and well-behaved pets are welcomed warmly to join you outside while you dine.

Waukesha definitely knows how to cater to pets, which is what every animal parent wants to know! You can rest easy in Waukesha knowing that your pet is having the time of their life!
