Hi! My name is Kaley, and I am a professional stage director working mostly in opera.

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!

Having lived alongside several amazing canine companions all my life, I understand the importance of finding knowledgeable, trustworthy caretakers to look look after your four-legged family members. My years of experience as an animal rescuer, shelter volunteer, and veterinary assistant providing onsite and in-home clinical care render me well-equipped to meet your pet's unique care needs. I have been fortunate to work domestically and internationally with breeds of all sizes, temperaments, and backgrounds. Whether during a walk, on the grooming table, or playing fetch in the backyard, your dog's comfort and safety are always my top priorities. I look forward to devoting my undivided attention to your furry friend sometime soon!
