    I grew up with a dog named Terry in Virginia Beach, VA for the first 18 years of my life. I served on the board of the Norfolk SPCA from 2015-2022 and own a cat named noraA. I enjoy watching my best friend's two Golden Retrievers when he goes out of town as well as my sister's three Boston Terriers when she goes out of town. I already walk between 10-15 miles per day on my own so the opportunity to combine my love of dogs and walking is very exciting to me.

    Hi, I'm Krystal! I come from a large family, and that includes our pets. Growing up, becoming a vet was my dream job. Although I chose a career in art later in life, I have cared for a variety of animals and pups are definitely one of my favorites! I have experience with dogs (cats too!) of all breeds, sizes, and personalities. I can not wait to work with you and your furry friends!

    “Your pup is always safe with me :)”

    Hello, my name is Kobe! I’ve had dogs all my life, and I’m always excited to meet a new pup. I believe that dogs are sensitive, intelligent beings that deserve our love and respect. I treat and care for every dog as if they were my own, and will always put your dog’s safety above all else.

    My name is Mahogany and I’m a longtime dog lover! I love the beach and I love doggies! I have my own standard poodle and I understand the demands of raising a high maintenance dog that requires care in all areas of their appearance, diet and lifestyle. I bring that knowledge to my care for all pets. I’d love to bond with your dog, share tips and advice with you, and develop relationships with you! I’m extremely experienced with large dog breeds, poodles and poodle hybrids!

    Hi! My name is Cheryl. I have always had one or more dogs from the time I was a child to now. I currently have a 1-year-old Boston & a Bugg, after losing my senior dogs in 2020. While I spoil my dogs and any in my care, I do follow any instructions left for me, and will reach out if I have any questions. I have done a lot of pet sitting for people vacationing, and have a lot of experience with brachycephalic breeds & those with allergies. I look forward to meeting your pup(s) soon!

    Hi! I've lived in Virginia for the last 18 years. Graduated from ODU and walk/take care of my furry friends as a part-time job. I don't really consider this a 'job' because I absolutely LOVE dogs and they keep me active and young! I have experience with many types of breeds, anywhere from a four pound Pomeranian to big Chinese Shar pei. I pet sit for friends and family all the time and have had to administer insulin to one of the dogs twice a day. I have a pretty flexible schedule and can cater to your needs and requests. I look forward to taking care of you furry baby!

    Calling all fishermen - Lake Prince is one of the oldest lakes in the Suffolk area! It stays well stocked with trophy bass and sunfish year round. If casting a line with your canine is one of your favorite things, do not miss out on a serious catch at Lake Prince. There is a launch for boats of all different sizes, or you can set up shop around the perimeter near the ramp. Pack bait, some snacks, and a life jacket for your pooch because Lake Prince is open from dawn until dusk! It is one thing to see the swamps in Southern Virginia, but this is truly experiencing them.

    We’ve said it once, we’ll say it one thousand times: what is better than a dog in a costume? Hosted by Suffolk Parks and Recreation at Lake Meade Dog Park, Yappy Hour is a public costume contest for humans and pups alike to strut their spooky stuff. Naturally, there are prizes to be won in competitions like "Best Costume". When you aren’t strutting your stuff with Fido, kick back with your neighbors, listen to music, and enjoy a beverage before Virginia gets too cold! While this event is free, it is only available to dog park members. For those that are not, memberships can be acquired easily through a one-time fee of $10 to Suffolk Parks and Recreation. This not only buys you access to a poocherific dog park but also to events like this that make your heart smile.

    The Great Dismal Swamp is quite literally one of the largest swamps in the country and is much more remarkable in person than the word ‘swamp’ would lead you to believe! The historical integrity alone can make your head spin. The Great Dismal Swamp was often trekked through by slaves escaping plantations, making it an archaeological destination to this day. The trails and wildlife, particularly the birdwatching, are extensive for those who appreciate the great outdoors. A part of the United States National Wildlife System, the Great Dismal Swamp is carefully maintained to ensure that its delicate ecosystem is undisturbed, so dogs must stay on a leash at all times. With its winding route of trails, there is enough room for hikers, cyclists, and dogs to enjoy the peace and quiet amongst the cypress trees of a decades-old feature in Virginia!
