Jeff Graves, Owner

A love of the outdoors, dogs, and physical fitness led Jeff on the journey of founding KC Dog Runners, Kansas City’s first and only dog running company. A husband, father, cyclist, runner, weight lifter, tennis player, hiker, and skier, Jeff practices yoga, has his black belt in Tae Kwon Do, has hiked the Appalachian Trail in 90 days, and has spent a winter perfecting back flips and moguls in Telluride, CO.


A graduate of the University of South Dakota’s Business School in 1998, Jeff has worked for one of Kansas City’s premier commercial insurance brokers, learning the ropes of the business world. Ready to get back to what he is passionate about, Jeff created KC Dog Runners in 2008.



We have a wonderful staff who are committed to providing a great workout for the dogs and top notch customer service to our clients.  We are all committed to performing our jobs with integrity; we are trustworthy, caring and reliable.  We are professional to the core.
