Welcome to Wags West, the Upper West Side's favorite dog walking service. Locally-based and family-owned, we're long-time pet owners inspired by our sincere love of dogs and cats. Since 2006, we've been committed to providing safe, reliable and expert pet care to our local communities of the UWS, Morningside Heights and South Harlem.
Wags West clients know that they can expect only the most loving and personal attention for their pets from our team of experienced, well-trained pet care professionals.
When Marixa and Michael opened Wags West back in 2010, it was all because of Boudreaux. Lifelong animal lovers, we were inspired to open Wags West after adopting our boy Boudreaux, (aka Boo) a spirited, very smart and lovably high-maintenance Australian Cattle Dog mix.
Since Boo did not arrive with his own owners' manual, it was up to us to discover--through long walks and positive training techniques (courtesy of great local trainers that soon became resources and friends) --that Boo could learn anything. And we learned our one great truth---A Tired Dog Is A Happy Dog!
Now, ten years later, we manage a talented team of fellow animal lovers. Because hiring exactly the right people is such an essential part of pet care, all staff candidates are interviewed twice, thoroughly vetted through professional references and a security background check, then given complete field training in positive dog walking. And that's when we know they are ready to be your dog's next best friend.
Oustanding Service! Highly recommended. They always take care of our cat just like their own.
Mike and Marixa are awesome. Our high energy puppy comes back tired from every walk...
Wags West is a great company. The doormen tell me that the walkers are very patient with our Bella. Highly recommend.
