    Wag! Walking has become one of my new favorite things! I love getting to meet new pups, go on mini adventures, and having a blast exercising all while in nature. I have 2 extremely high energy dogs my self that love taking ME for walks, haha! Parker (5y) is a heeler mix and Myles (2y) is a boxer/lab mix. I will try my best to have your babies enjoy their walk as much as I enjoy walking them. I’m a photographer and I love taking photos so expect some extra pictures.

    “Dog mom of 3 beautiful rescues”

    My name is Kelly, dog mom of 3 wonderful rescues. I have had “aggressive breeds” but found all dogs to be capable of the most loving tendencies, albeit some high energy levels and stubborn training habits. I can handle difficult dogs and overly friendly as I’ve had experience with both. I have an elderly rescue as well with some health issues so I can follow health or dietary restrictions. I would love nothing more than to take care of your dog with as much love as you would while you’re away

    “Taking care of your furry friends for you!”

    Hi fellow dog lovers! As a Aussie parent,, I know how important it is both to your pup and to you to have quality interactions, fun and exercise. I am an active guy who does triathlons and marathons and love to have my dog go along with me as I train. Your furry companion will get the same attention, love, fun and care as mine does when we go out. I'm equally at ease on a neighborhood walk or a long hike at a local park; whatever your dog needs they will get as if they were my own.

    Landon did a great job taking care of our dog while we were away for Thanksgiving. We were nervous leaving her over the holidays, so it was really nice to have a sitter who was so communicative. He took great care of her and even came back for an extra walk in the morning! Thank you Landon!

    If your pup is looking for an excuse to impress the ladies with his spiffy, new bandana and you happen to have just run out of organic kale, The Market at Pepper Place is sure to make you both happy. Meet other dogs (and humans) while perusing the finest selection of homegrown goods, crafts, and produce. Located in the trendy Southside district of downtown Birmingham, this lively farmer's market is the nose-bumping, tail-wagging, weekend event of the season, running April through December. Pick up a pack of Blind Dog Biscuits and stop at Railroad Park, just a few blocks away, on the way to your next adventure.

    Delano Park is located just east of downtown Decatur, offering lots of room for families to play. It's a great choice if you're looking for a family-friendly activity that will allow the kids and pets to have fun together. Walk your pup around the perimeter of the park while kids play on the playground or in the splashpad. The large open green space in the center of the park is great for a game of tag or fetch. The park also offers a beautiful sculpture garden, full or plants and thirsty butterflies. While dogs aren't allowed in that section of the park, it's just one more reason your friends and family will want to tag along.

    Safeguarding a 35,000 acre piece of land along the Tennessee River in an area of Decatur known as Cedar Lake, the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge is known for being a breeding ground for migratory birds like the Sandhill Crane. However, it's also open to the public for bird watching, wildlife photography, dog walking (wink-wink), etc. Humans are welcome to join their dogs as long as they're wearing a leash. Hike any of the 5 trails weaving along the shoreline. For a fresher perspective, bring a canoe and enjoy the sights and sounds of this pristine gem while paddling the westward flowing water. There are six designated launch sites approved for small boats and canoes.

    Why did the dog cross the river? Yes, we know... to get to the other side. But what's on the other side? The correct answer is Mill Creek Dog Park! Take a quick 20 minute ride over the Tennessee River to visit the closest designated dog park to Decatur, Alabama. The 1.4 acre fenced-in off-leash puppy playground offers free drinking water and picnic tables for parents. The park is divided into an area for large dogs over 25 lbs and one for small dogs under 25 lbs. Medium-sized dogs that weigh 25 lbs can either choose a side or work as ambassadors for the good of the community, digging holes on the left and sniffing butts on the right.

    If you're staying in town and are looking for a quick and easy date with your dog, why not check out Downtown Dawgs, where there are dogs on dogs on dawgs? It's a hotdog shop that's pet friendly. Try a basic dawg, specialty dawg, dawgy bowl, or build your own dog. Just be sure to pack a little something to sneak under the table while you sit outside on the patio, enjoying your dawgs. It's a great place to people watch and dog watch!
