Hi, I’m Miranda! I am a 25-year-old WVU graduate who recently moved to California to pursue my dream career as a wedding planner. I have always been an animal lover. Throughout my teens I spent my summers dog-sitting small and large good boys and girls for family and church members.

“Because a dog loves you most.”

Hey there! My name is Shae, and I think I'd be a great option for you to consider as a dog walker. The past three years I've worked, managed, and assisted multiple different rescue organizations and have learned so much about the dogs in my care. Alongside my hands-on experience, I'm working to better my academics through certification courses: currently I've completed Pet CPR + First Aid, Animal Physical Therapy, and Animal Psychology. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
