What Our Customers are Saying About Us
I am writing to highly recommend Walks and Wags’ groomer, Katie, whom I have known for five years as the BEST groomer in our community. During this time Katie has worked with Walks and Wags as a dog trainer and groomer. As her talents and qualifications have been wide spread, Katie is now called upon for her expert grooming skills full time.
I had personally tried three well-established groomers in our area to no avail. None were able to groom our Irish terrier to breed specification.
The first time Katie groomed our dog she was expertly groomed and could have been placed in any reference book depicting identification photographs of dog breeds. Absolutely picture perfect!
I have no doubt your dog would come home happier, more confident and beautifully groomed after a spa day with Katie.
Buster was a rescue shelter dog. Despite being energetic and adorable, he lacked a lot of discipline and was occasionally aggressive with other dogs. Since attending Walks and Wags, we have witnessed Buster transform into a calmer, gentler, and more obedient dog.
Imagine a place dogs dream about.
A place where they can make friends with four and two legged pack members. A stimulating environment where dogs have cool stuff to do, get lots of healthy exercise and have fun learning important social skills with which they can impress their humans.
Our lucky rescue dogs have been “living the dream” at Walks and Wags for over seven years. And we humans are lucky to have this amazing place in Mobile.
Dogs need doggie friends and Walks and Wags is THE place they dream about!

The History of Walks and Wags
Hello my name is Cindie Carter and I am the CEO of Walks and Wags. We are a family owned business. My husband, son and entire family evacuated to Mobile after Hurricane Katrina. We had family in Mobile and decided to move here and start our business in Mobile. Growing up I always had a passion for dogs. I was born a baby boomer and back in the day, the culture was that dogs belonged in the back yard. Most of a dogs time was spent in the backyard and it was pure luck if they did not get heart worms or get hit by a car. All the dogs back then passed away way too soon and I was determined to make a difference in the lives of dogs.
Here’s an interesting fact: Did you know that millennials are the first generation to think of pets more like humans than animals? Our pets are an extension of our family and they should be treated like family. My passion is giving dogs the best life forward through training and socialization. I believe that by moving the canine lifestyle forward, we are also moving humanity forward.
I am an active member of the Women’s Business Center Alliance and the Mobile Chamber of Commerce. I also serve on the Mobile County Animal Shelter Board, Foster adoptable dogs and serve on the Emerging Leaders Advisory Board.
Mobile’s best doggie day care business is growing, and we want someone who loves dogs as much as we do. Applicants must love the outdoors and live in Mobile.
