In September of 2016, after 27 years’ experience with strategic planning, advocacy marketing, graphics, teaching, public speaking, and brand development, Beth left a C-suite positon to take a leap of faith. She decided to pursue an idea to create a nonprofit initiative to quantify, qualify, and promote responsible dog-friendliness in America like no one had done to date. 

Since then, she has conducted more than 500 face-to-face interviews in 18 states with thought leaders from economic development and animal advocacy to tourism and law enforcement. Beth and her partner in crime, Tom Everhart, led the nation’s largest dog-friendly research initiative and are creating a national movement to change the world, one wet nose at a time. Wagtown is a global movement for authentic and responsible dog-friendly people and communities. If you’d like to get involved, raise your paw!

Dogs bring people together. When every dog in a community is cared for as a part of the family, the community is enhanced.

A Wagtown community is truly “where the wag happens.” Wagtown leads the movement to create a Wagtown community for everyone. As leaders, our commitment is to listen and learn, define standards, educate, and share best practices to engage diverse communities and build a powerful, unified voice for change and celebration. If you'd like to improve dog friendliness in your community, Wagtown can get you there. Contact us at info@wagtown.org to get started.
