You love dogs, we love dogs, let's be FURiends!

Hello, I'm Alana!

Owner and founder of Wags of Love

Since I was a child, dogs have held a special place in my heart, igniting a profound passion that has blossomed into a lifelong mission: to transform the lives of as many dogs as I possibly can. As an adult, I try to fulfill this goal by fostering dogs in need, continuously expanding my knowledge within the pet industry, and now, by helping others to incorporate their pets into life’s special moments.

I have always been inherently drawn to dogs; whenever there is a dog in the room, my immediate response is to be by their side, embracing their love and affection. Their presence brings an indescribable sense of comfort and happiness to me. Being able to witness their joyful nature fills my heart with an overwhelming sense of gratitude and purpose. Wags of Love allows me to combine my passion with my profession, making every day a fulfilling journey where my love for these incredible animals can thrive.

In my free time, I enjoy activities such as spending valuable time with my dog Nayla, exploring the beautiful outdoors, getting creative with crafts, and snuggling on the couch to binge watch a good TV series with bowl of buttery popcorn!

Lead Pet Assistant

As a devoted dog mom, I firmly believe that our furbabies are an integral part of our family, and no significant life event should unfold without their loving presence by our side.

Alana and I have had a close friendship for six years, and our shared love for dogs became the foundation of our bond. United by our passion to improve the lives of dogs, I became immediately inspired to join the Wags of Love mission.

In my personal time, I enjoy embarking on road trip across country with my dog Sadie, experimenting with new dinner recipes, and rooting for my favorite professional sports teams!

Nayla Rae


In 2020, Nayla became an irreplaceable part of our family the moment we rescued her. She instantly captured our hearts and became the center of our universe, filling our lives with immeasurable happiness and love. As Nayla grew and flourished, it became clear that she had a purpose beyond our home. She found her calling in contributing to the noble mission of Wags of Love, where we try to enrich dog's lives to the fullest extent possible. Nayla encompasses a multitude of lovable qualities, from her mesmerizing crystal blue eyes to her fun spirited and vibrant personality. She enjoys spending her time playing tug of war, snuggling on the couch, and running around with her furiends. She is a constant reminder of the incredible bond we share with our dogs, driving our business to be successful.

Your wedding should reflect your personalities and interests as a couple. If you and your partner are passionate about your dog and consider them a significant part of your lives, including them in your wedding adds a personal touch that makes the event more meaningful and authentic.
