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!

Dog Walking in Forest

Virginia is home to many cities and rural towns, but none are quite like the little community of Forest, Virginia, where the Old South meets the modern era. Sitting quaintly in the shadow of the pawpular Lynchburg, Forest is a strikingly charming town where you and Fido can escape to for a weekend. Four friendly and well-trained veterinarians are available in Forest, so no need to wag outside the town to care for your pup.


Virginia is speckled with a pawful of historical attractions and national heritages. One of which sits right here in Forest, VA! Come learn about the life of Thomas Jefferson with your pup on the grounds of the Thomas Jefferson Poplar Forest, now a pawpular National Historical Landmark. Fido must be leashed at all times to explore the grounds, but is not allowed in any of the historical buildings. If you'd like to do the tour, but not leave Fido at home, there are temporary kennels onsite available for your pup.

Head to the center of Forest when you and your pup's tummies begin to growl. La Carreta is a pup-friendly Mexican style eatery where authentic dishes like goritas, taquitos, fajitas, and more, are in paw's reach. Fido is more than welcome to join in on the fun while you eat outside.

Forest is waiting for you and Fido's visit! Come discover this quaint little town and immerse yourself in times past.

The quaint downtown district of Forest is a lovely neighborhood just waiting for your stroll or shopping expedition with Fido. Head over to Monkee Joe's with your pup to discover one of Forest's best known eateries (or "treateries"). This vibrant little creamery serves up fresh soft serve ice cream and the most wooftacular cold coffee on the block. Doggoes are more than welcome to join their human owners at the shaded tables where Fido can lap up his free Pup Cup as you enjoy your tasty frozen treat as well. Come to Monkee Joe's to satisfy your canine's sweet tooth!

When in Forest, you and your pup will not want to miss out on a trip to the Jefferson Villas neighborhood for one main reason: the Apocalypse Ale Works Brewery! Come and sample up to ten pawsome craft beers made in-house. Enjoy a sampler or a local specialty with Fido outside at Apocalypse Ale's spacious pup-friendly backyard. This local gem is pawpularly known for being the very first brewery to come to Forest since Thomas Jefferson himself first brewed at his private estate of Poplar Forest during the 1800's. A'paw'calyspe Ale is both family and dog-friendly, so bring everyone for a barkin' good time!

Kickstart your morning with a visit to The Muse Coffee Company to enjoy a breakfast of champions served with a piping hot cup of Joe or one of their special house creations. Breakfast is served all day, or come in for lunch to enjoy a variety of wraps, sandwiches and hummus'. Don't fill up all at Muse's though, 'cause just next door is Millie's Living Cafe, where you and Fido can recharge with specially crafted healthy and nutritious dishes. Smoothie bowls, vegan wraps, and even wheat-free sandwiches are up for tasting at Millie's!

Six outdoor tables invite you and your pup to take a break with bagel in hand, err paw. To woof in more fresh air, head to the nearby Timbrook Park. Run and play with Fido on the wide open grassy area, or sit and relax on a park bench. Enjoy the park's small pond, public library, children's playground, and walking/running trails with your furiend!
