“A tired dog is a happy dog!”

Hi I'm Ashley! I have 6+ years working with animals. I started my career at Paws Atlanta Animal shelter as a kennel technician. I'm a trail runner, wife, and mom with a big heart and love for the outdoors and dogs. I know an active and well-socialized dog means a happier, healthier, and much better behaved dog for you to come home to. That's why I'm here to take your energetic pooches out into the world to do all the things dogs love to do - run, play, sniff, chase, dig, roll, and swim.

Dog Walking in Huntsville

The city of Huntsville is in North Alabama, nicely situated in Madison County and Limestone County. It is the fourth largest Alabama city with 186,254 people, and around 47,000 of these households have dogs or cats.

One of the best dog parks is Huntsville Dog Spot in the downtown area on Cleveland Avenue. This dog park has separated fenced areas for both large and small dogs, water fountains, and seating readily available so you can sit back and enjoy while Fido makes friends. Indian Creek Dog Park in Harvestwood Court has plenty of running space and a creek for some water fun. It doesn't end there, Monte Sano State Park on Nolen Avenue has hiking trails, camping, and expansive mountain bike and regular cycling trails, which is great if your furry friend is able to keep up on the leash.

Once you've worn down Fido and have worked up an appetite be sure to take a break at one of the many pet-friendly joints within Huntsville. Local favorites include Big Spring Café, LeeAnne’s, Stanlieo's Sub Villa, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, and Humphrey’s Bar & Grill. Don't worry about getting bored without Fido, after you drop your pets at the hotel, like the LaQuinta Inn & Suites, Motel 6, and Microtel, check out the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. For around $20 you'll get a complete education on rocketry, space travel, telescopes, and general aircrafts. The team at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center will be sure to teach you something new, for those looking to enjoy the inside, don't miss the incredible iMax theater for some amazing space film.

The city center neighborhood combines old buildings with new hotels and a plethora of interesting restaurants.  The Downtown Dog Spot, located right off the Interstate 565 on Cleveland Avenue, is central to all the hubbub of downtown.  This huge area for dogs is the size of two football fields, or approximately 2 ½ acres.  It includes separate fenced enclosures for large and small dogs. Socialization abounds in this pupular spot  This park even has running water to drink. Although the water is great on a hot day, mind the mud!  Fortunately, this dog park includes a hose to wash up if your dog decides to get pawsitively dirty. Remember to clean up after your companion -- this park has a problem with less-than-conscientious dog owners.
