Shannon Ray
Pet Care Professional

Shannon grew up in Alabama with various pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish.  Her brother even had pet mice at one time.  The only time Shannon has not had a dog was while she was living in a college dorm.  Currently, she has one dog, two cats and three birds as well as three children and a husband who are in need of care.  Shannon says this is the perfect job for a mother who is a dog lover.  She gets many laughs from “her” dogs antics and plenty of exercise—what could be better?

Deb McKeeman
Pet Care Professional

Deb is a native of Northern Virginia and considers herself a proper political junkie.  She has grown up with many different animals, and is currently the proud owner of two Manikin Finches, Billy and Bob.  In her free time, she likes to explore new and different cuisines, travel the world, and read.  She also expresses herself artistically by creating personalized stained glass windows.

Brittany Leckey
General Manager

A Virginia resident all her life, Brittany has always been someone truly fascinated and captivated by dogs.  The care and attention she displays towards these animals has been part of her make-up since her early childhood.  Even after growing up with dogs, working with all different types of dogs the last six years, and currently being a proud owner of a Pit Bull and Yellow Lab, Brittany continues to take it upon herself to learn the details and particulars of dog behavior and their individual characteristics to a great extent.


The passion and commitment to ensuring all animals are fully understood and given the proper care they deserve has allowed Brittany to become a valuable member of Dog Gone Walking's team.  Since joining Dog Gone Walking, Brittany has served not only as a dog walker but also as staff liaison tasked with such duties as instructing and supporting our other team members to ensure the quality of care our clients deserve from our Paw-fessionals exceeds their expectations.   When not spending time with our clients or team members, Brittany enjoys spending time with her family and friends, or possibly even enjoying a game of softball or basketball.
