Meet the Staff:
In 2018, Ariana struggled to find high quality care for her two pitties, Lucy and Denny. Rather than settle for something less-than what her pups deserved, Ariana got to work building Wiggle Walkers. Every policy, service, and price is informed by her experiences as a pup-parent.
Ariana grew up in foster care and has always felt a special closeness with pit bulls. Similar to foster children, pitties are often stigmatized and judged as unworthy of a loving home. Ariana hopes to use the Wiggle Walkers' platform to create a program that helps youth aging out of foster care find housing, a reliable support system, and hopefully an animal companion of their own!

The pup in Ariana's arms is Lucy, her very first personal pup as an adult. Lucy is the wiggliest Pittie that you'll ever meet. In fact, her wiggly caboose is how Wiggle Walkers got its name.
Izzie, Lead Walker
If you live on Federal Hill you've likely seen Izzie walking some of our extra cute floofs-- including the sweet Pomeranian pictured above. Izzie's genuine warm nature and patience has earned them the trust of some of our most cautious pups. They're currently working towards becoming a certified dog-trainer and we're so fortunate to support their growth.
Tyler is our numbers guy, our tech guy, and our guy who always comes through. He worked with Ariana to build the business (full disclosure: they're married) and is vital to our ability to grow and provide our services to more clients without ever sacrificing quality.
Shoshanna is Wiggle Walkers' homestay rockstar and has a special connection with all of the pups she spends time with. If you're lucky enough to have them as your primary walker prepare to smile because Shoshanna's is contagious.
Maya is a natural around all animals. She has two dogs, Jewel and Foxy, as well as a bearded dragon named Fireheart and two Kenyan sand boas, Kell and Lila! She'll be attending the University of New England in Maine this fall to study Animal Behavior.
Destiny has an Akita mix named Ellen that's as quirky as she is cute. Those quirks help inform how Destiny cares for some of our more timid or ~extra~ client pups-- she problem solves and helps them feel secure and confident so they can enjoy their walks.
