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!

Hi! I am Miranda, an alumni at Liberty University. I come from a family of dog-lovers. My first memories include my doggies. I currently have a black lab and Welsh Corgi. My husband and I currently care for a blind golden retriever. Dogs truly are a man's best friend. Dogs, all shapes, sizes, and personalities, deserve to be loved. Dogs are not only pets, they are family and I strive to treat your puppy-child with that mindset. It is an honor to be awarded with the opportunity to walk your dog!

“I'll walk your dog!”
My name is Lily and I'm here on Wag! because obviously I love dogs and I love walking! I've had lots of experience caring for dogs, I even used to go on weekly runs with a corgi named Marta to help her lose weight (she lost 7 pounds and kept it off!) Whatever your dog needs, I'm confident I can provide. I also have wide availability, as I work remotely. I'd love to hang out with him/her/them. I look forward to meeting your canine!
