I have been been a pet parent all my life (starting out with cats and now dogs) and would love to fall in love with your furry friend too!

    Hi! My name is Kaley, and I am a professional stage director working mostly in opera. I travel all around the country working with opera companies to bring their shows to life, and it is a really exciting job! However, I often have a strange schedule, and I thought becoming a dog walker would be an awesome way to fill any gaps! I am comfortable with all breeds and sizes of dogs and am an avid runner. I love being outside enjoying the sunshine. Can't wait to meet your furry best friend!

    “I’m here to help!”

    I am a law student at Liberty University. I am very active and take walks during my lunch break, as well as long walks and runs after classes. I have a consistent schedule, so I am able to make and keep commitments. I was a top-ranked dog walker in the Washington, D.C. area with over 300 walks completed. I have experience with all sizes and types of dogs. I am trustworthy, honest, and kind, and would love to help your furry friend get lots of exercise!

    Hi my name is Kayla. At the moment I have two dogs, an Alaskan Malamute and a German Shepard mix. I have been walking and dog sitting my neighbors' furry little friends since I was 7. I am studying to become a surgical veterinarian. For the past three years I have been working as a boarding attendant at the Blooms Crossing Animal Hospital and I also volunteer at the Prince William County animal shelter. I can't wait to meet you and your furry family members soon!

    Hi! I’m Kelsey! I am 26 years old, married, living in an owned, single family house. I have 2 medium sized dogs of my own. I live near two parks and a lot of sidewalked roads for varied walks. My afternoons and weekends are generally free due to my teaching schedule. I love spending time with animals and being outside. I have experience with working with both high energy dogs and shy, anxious dogs. I would love to walk your dog and make them feel loved and extra special when you’re not around!

    “Just keep walking!”

    Hi! My name is Dara and I live here in Tampa. I am a college student in Virginia and I recently moved to Florida with my parents. I know this time is crazy but I want to be here to help my community. I love all animals especially dogs. I’ve had a couple “Good Boys” in my life and I’d love to meet yours. I’ll keep your doggo well entertained while you get a well deserved break or if you’re just away. Whatever the time or situation I’ll be there.

    “Dog walking and caregiving-rain or shine!”

    Hi pups and parents! I have grown up my whole live with a golden retriever in the house so I am very used to having dogs around! I love to make sure your pets have what they need and that they get extra love and attention while you’re gone. I love being able to create a fun, safe, and cozy environment while they await the return of their parents! I have walked many dogs- as a business and at dog shelters. So as you can see, I truly love love dogs and would love to take care of yours!

    First off: my wife and I cherish and love our dog and do not trust anyone to watch over her. We needed a caregiver for our wedding. Right when we met Allie we knew they were the right fit. Allie went above and beyond with looking over our dog. Allie is the best. Allie is responsible, friendly and most importantly took excellent care of our dog. If you want a caregiver that can give you incredible piece of mind look no further.
