Jonathan did everything he promised and more. Getting our dog back and a bath was unexpected and a welcome surprise. Jonathan is legit!
Leo had the best time! Will definitely book again :)
Literally best caregiver ever. Lillian is experienced and super attentive. She sent updates during Leo s entire stay and I appreciated it so much. I loved the videos and photos and knowing he was in good hands. They went on lots of adventures throughout the day and leo is eager to go back and hang with his new pals
Lots of updates and she seemed to be so happy to be there! Would definitely recommend and use Cam again!
Rachel is the bomb! We are so lucky to have found her She is super caring and attentive. Our pup is always so happy to see her!
My dogs absolutely love when Rachel shows up. She takes care of our pups like they are her own. Wonderful and caring provider.
Samantha did a great job with Cora! Cora is a rescue and she gets nervous easily but she seemed to adjust right away. She came home a very happy pup :) Samantha also sent lots of good pics and updates.
Rachel took amazing care of our sweet girl. She was very happy and got lots of love and attention. Rachel is a rockstar and clearly cares so much about animals!
Cam did an amazing job taking care of my Frenchie, and he sent lots of pictures and updates throughout the stay, so I never had to worry about how my guy was doing. My pup also has special needs, which can make it harder to find someone to trust him with, and Cam was super accommodating, patient, and reliable. We will absolutely be asking him to care for Robin again!
Thanks so much for taking care of our loves while we were away!
The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Louisville
Bark in the Park
Join crowds of other dog lovers and their pets to celebrate all things canine at Animal Care Society’s Bark in the Park. Held in Seneca Park each September, this "furociously" fun event kicks off with a 5K Woof Walk/Run (a registration fee of $30 applies). Once you and your pet have completed the course, you can let your pup cool off in a kiddie pool while you rehydrate and refuel with food and drink from one of the many vendors. Then you can enter your pet in a contest, learn about rescue organizations and local pet businesses, and generally raise the woof!
Waggin' Trail Festival for the Animals
Hit the trail and get your tail waggin’ at this legendary Louisville dog event. Held at the Louisville Water Tower each June, the Waggin’ Trail Festival for the Animals is a relaxed, social walk that benefits Kentucky Humane Society. A celebration of the human-animal bond, the walk also features a wooftastic range of activities and events for dogs and their humans, including animal booths, food and beverage vendors, and live entertainment. Add pet contests and some adoptable animals into the mix and you’ve got a great day out for dog lovers and their four-legged friends!
Held in the lead-up to the Kentucky Derby, Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville℠ at Waterfront Park draws people in by the thousands. The highlight of the event for dog lovers, however, is HappyTail Hour, a pet-inclusive cocktail event hosted by Metro Animal Services. You and your leashed pet can mingle with other dog lovers, listen to some paw-some live entertainment, play fun games, and generally have a "grrreat" time. It’s a wonderful night out for any dog lover, so make sure to add it to your mutts-do list.
Dog Day at the Park
Love sports almost as much as you love your dog? Combine your two passions at one of the Dog Days at the Park, which are held several times each summer at Louisville Slugger Field. Hosted by the Louisville Bats, these "pawesome" ballgames give pet lovers a chance to watch some high-quality baseball with their dogs by their side. Human tickets are $8, and by making a donation of $3 per dog to Kentucky Humane Society, your dog gains access to the V.I.P. (Very Important Puppies) section. The first 500 fur-kids also receive a special doggie bag, so get in early before all the dog days for the season are going, going, gone!
