About Us

Our Story

Golden retriever dog Established in 2008, Waggy Tails Pet Sitting + Dog Walking is a locally owned and operated small business, that grew out of Summer, the owner’s, true love for creatures big and small. From humble beginnings as one-person-operation, Waggy Tails has grown into a professional team of pet sitters and dog walkers located throughout the greater Knoxville area, serving hundreds of families and their four-legged “kids.”  With over 5 years of experience in the pet care industry, we’re proud to say we have exceptional online reviews, and multiple clients that readily refer us to their friends and family. We are fully licensed, bonded, and insured.  Most importantly though, we all love our jobs and thrive in the care of pets.  Our promise to you is exceptional, unbeatable service.  We want all of our clients to wonder how they managed before they met Waggy Tails!
