“Dependable dog lover that goes above and beyond!”
Thank you for considering me to take care of your pup! I grew up with dogs skilled in obedience and agility, so I recognize the importance of physical and mental activity. I will make sure that your dog receives both, as well as lots of love! When I'm not walking dogs, I work for the medical center and love to do volunteer work.

Hello! My name is Lorelei and I'm a college student. I love working with animals and spending all day with dogs has always been my dream job. I've been pet sitting for 5 years and I'm responsible, friendly, and resourceful. I can't wait to meet all the neighborhood dogs!
Oral medicine administration
I’m an opera singer who loves animals and taking a break from practicing to spend time with them. Being outdoors and taking walks is a favorite past time for me, and a great way to get exercise and practice self care. I’d love to help take care of your dog and add a little joy to their day!

Fast walker, Dogs who pull
I love dogs and have been around them since I was a kid. I’m currently a college student-athlete so being able to walk or sit brightens up my day. I had a dog named Sophie, she was a rescue from the shelter and she was with my family and I for 12 years. A majority of my friends have dogs and for some of them I’m their go to dog sitter/ walker.

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!
If you're in Verona and you're in search of some off-leash playtime, paw on over to Harrisonburg Dog Park (also known as Smithland Road Dog Park), located ruffly 22 miles away from Verona. 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. This park is pawpular with the locals, so you and Fido are sure to make fast friends here!
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.
The Gypsy Hill Park neighborhood is home to a park of the same name. 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!
