Meet Sarah

IMG_2577.jpg
founder of The Wag Factor

The Wag Factor was started in 2015 by Sarah Rosenthal, with her husband Noah, along for the ride. After struggling to find passion and fulfillment at her office job, she decided to create a business that would bring joy to humans and animals alike. Thus, The Wag Factor was born! Having an extreme passion for animals, she knew the business would thrive off helping others take care of their beloved pets. The Wag Factor is a passion project for Sarah.

        Sarah operates the business full time, while Noah is a full time ICU nurse at MUSC, in downtown Charleston. In their spare time, they love to hang with their two rescue Cockapoos, Moe and Louie. They also enjoy going to the beach, working out, trying out new restaurants, cooking, and enjoying anything local that Charleston has to offer!

        Since 2015, The Wag Factor has given peace of mind to local pet parents so they don't have to feel stressed about the wellbeing of their furry friend. The Wag Factor specializes in daily dog walks. Our goal is to help the busy, working class community take care of their pups. Dogs thrive on exercise and attention. Some benefits of daily dog walking include good weight management, combating boredom, socialization for your dog, and less stress which means less messes. We can't wait to learn more about your dog and how we can help!
