“Always available, always flexible”

Hi, my name is Lindsey. I just recently moved to the Baltimore area. I left two dogs at home with my parents - a three-year-old St. Bernard mix named Comet and a nine-year-old Labrador mix named Reese. I have plenty of experience caring for both my own pets, and petsitting for other families. I've never met a dog I don't like, but I know that some furry friends can take some warming up to. I am prepared and excited to get to know your pets!

Hi! My name is Rachel and I am so excited to walk your dog! I have grown up with a dog/dogs in my household since day one. Over the years, I have worked in an animal shelter, pet sit and cared for my own dogs. I have dealt with all types of dogs from super skittish ones to very high maintenance ones. I have cared for dogs that are bigger than me but also ones that are adorably small and I have always enjoyed my time with each and every animal.

Hello! I'm Chloe, I'm 18 years old and have spent my entire life around animals! When I was born, I was born a few days a part from a golden retriever named Lucy, and thus spent my early life attached to that dogs hip. My family takes in rescued animals, so I have raised cats from birth, and taken care of injured animals all my life. My father is a goat farmer who owns 8 dogs, so I know my way around a few pups of all varieties! I'm excited to have the opportunity to meet new pups!

Dog Walking in Verona

Verona is a small town located approximately 40 miles away from Charlottesville, Virginia. If you and the pooch prefer to stay within a bone's throw of Verona, the muttropolis of Staunton is just 6 miles away and has plenty of dog-friendly fun to go around! No need to leave town to find quality vet care, though -- there's a veterinary clinic, hospital, and emergency service here to keep your pup tip-top.

Verona is home to the historic Mount Airy, a sprawling 19th-century estate that's definitely worth a gander. Mount Airy was once home to Grandma Moses, a prolific painter whose work depicted the life of a typical farmer's wife. It's unclear if pets are allowed on the grounds here, so you may want to leave Fido at home for this one.

Need a place to stay while visiting Verona? The local Knights Inn welcomes up to two canine guests per human guest. You can find more pet-friendly lodging options in nearby Staunton.

Hungry? Paw on over to Ciro's Pizza in the center of town, where you and Fido can share a slice at the outdoor tables. You'll also find a pet-friendly chain restaurant in town where you can grab a quick bite before continuing on your travels.

In Verona, you're never far from dog-friendly fun!

Here, you'll find a large, fenced area with separate sections for small and large breeds. This grassy park provides pet parents with shade, seating, and a picnic table where they can relax while watching over their pooches. Drinking water is only available seasonally, so if you're visiting in the winter, don't forget to bring some with you.

Coyner Springs Park is a little closer to Verona at just 16 miles away. This is a 300-acre natural area with lots of trails and picnic areas that you can explore with your leashed pooch. If you prefer to let your dog roam free, there is a designated off-leash area where your precious pal can go dog wild! While it doesn't have separate sections for large and small breeds, the park is huge, so there's plenty of space for even timid or small pups to play safely. Don't forget to bring waste bags to clean up after your pal.

Gypsy Hill Dog Park is another furrific dog park that's just 5 miles away from Verona, making it perfect for those who don't want to travel far for off-leash fun. Like most dog parks, this one has separate, fenced sections for large and small breeds. Unlike most dog parks, though, this one has agility equipment which Fido will pawsitively love playing on! Tired pet owners can take a load off on one of the benches here. If you're visiting on a hot day, though, be aware that the park doesn't provide much shade.

Around 30 miles away from Verona, you'll find Shenandoah National Park. This 500,000+ acre park is pawfect for pet owners and pups who enjoy playing in the great outdoors. Almost all the trails at this park welcome leashed pooches, but you'll want to pay attention to signage, as some of the trails prohibit dogs. Pack a tent and some camping gear to make it a weekend getaway! Leashed dogs are welcome at most of the campsites within the campgrounds, but should be well-behaved and with you at all times. Bring plenty of snacks and water for your adventures here.

Thirty-five miles away from Verona is a pawsitively gorgeous attraction called Crabtree Falls. This spot attracts people and pups from all over the state! Here, you can find five different cascades with mesmerizing views, which make for some Instagram-worthy photo opportunities! One of the trails is fit for beginners, but many of the trails here are a little challenging, so plan your adventure accordingly. The best part? Well-behaved dogs who respond well to voice commands are allowed to explore the trails off-leash! Don't forget to bring plenty of clean drinking water -- you wouldn't want your pup drinking out of the falls!
