“Extreme Animal Lover!Hug your furbaby!”

Hi! I am a huge dog lover (currently have 2 Goldens) who walks my dogs every day (unless it's raining hard or there's a severe wind chill). I love all dogs. I do not walk dogs on prong collars. I prefer a harness or gentle leader. I am a school teacher and have lived in my home for about 15 years. I've hired dog walkers in the past myself (when my dogs were puppies and needed to get out more on work days). I am the person who, when not with my dogs, stops to meet other dogs along my way.

Hello, I’m Miranda! My first job was walking my neighbor’s basset hounds. Until Wag it was the best job I’d ever had! I have experience with dogs of all sizes and breeds. I always take my time when getting to know a new dog and let them make the first move. The safety and happiness of your pet and the security of your home are my biggest concerns; I’ll treat them both as I would my own. I’m an avid walker, but it’s so much better with a canine companion! I can’t wait to meet yours.

Dog Walking in Cliff Island

Cliff Island is a tiny island community with less than a hundred full-time residents. This rustic northeastern community, however, is still technically part of the large city of Portland. This means Cliff Island, a seemingly remote community, is near many coastal amenities -- including about fifteen vet clinics within twenty miles.

One of the most iconic locations in all of Maine, the Portland Head Lighthouse is more than just a photo opportunity. This gorgeous, historic lighthouse is surrounded by a dog-friendly park and even walking trails; it’s also a fantastic place for a picnic. Also in Portland is Congress Square Park, which is newly dog-friendly! This park is known for its free Wi-Fi and live music.

The Mackworth Island Trail is a gorgeous coastal walking trail in Falmouth. Because the trail is maintained by the state, it’s always clean and has plenty of seating for you and Fido to take in those gorgeous ocean views. Leashed pups are welcome to join their owners on this scenic, 1.25 mile hike.

There are also a few dog-friendly restaurants near Cliff Island -- the two most prominent being Erica’s Seafood and the Salt Cod Cafe. Both coastal restaurants are top-rated for their excellent seafood, so visit them for an authentic Maine crab or lobster roll!
