My name is Nikki Martinez.  Growing up in the country on a farm,  I fostered a special connection with animals at an early age.  I learned to honor, love and respect animals and truly treasure my relationship with them.  As an experienced dog owner, I feel 'tuned' in to the cues of animal behavior and decided to follow my passion as a Dog Walker.  


Walk & Wag was established in Royal Oak in May of 2014.  I am a member & insured by Pet Sitters Associates.  


In my free time, I work as an Artist. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Wayne State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Art from the College of Fine and Performing Arts. Illustration and Photography are my second passion.


I am looking for the opportunity to expand my route & meet a few new furry friends
