I’ve used Wiggle Waggle Walk for five years. My dog walker is Michael, and he’s been with my cocker spaniel Molly since she was only allowed puppy visits. She’s a bossy little diva who doesn’t like wind or rain, but Michael can get her to go out with him in any weather. She loves him. He has helped teach her manners since she was a puppy.
Once when I had surgery he kept her overnight, which was a blessing because I didn’t want to board her, as she is so bonded to me and my family. He also came to the rescue one day when my stupid hard-wired fire alarm was going off for no reason. Michael found the offending alarm and disabled it before the police had to knock down my door.
Michael has three different routes he takes with Molly, depending on weather. Probably the longest is 25 minutes, because like I said before, she is a diva. He lets her socialize with other dogs and people on the walk, but he takes his cue from Molly- if she doesn’t like a dog, he will know. She loves toddlers, so he lets her be petted by them, and stops her from being too rambunctious. He gives me a daily update on how her walk went.
When Michael broke his ankle, Eden didn’t leave me stranded- she solved the problem and kept Molly’s walks up. Eden is extremely reliable and knowledgeable about dogs of all kinds.
Molly probably hasn’t needed a dog walker for years, but how could I deprive Molly from her good friend Michael? There is a lady in the neighborhood who walks 11-16 dogs at a time. I’m sure that would be cheaper, but that’s not what I want. Molly is my furry baby, and I want to know someone is caring for her when I’m at work.
