“Enjoying the grace to bless others!”

Before starting to pursue a career in Medicine, I've always had a passion for animal care. Being able to spend time with animals, whether it's dogs, horses, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, or even fishes and reptiles, is always a pleasure for me. I have experience in training and taking care of all types of dogs, and it has been a blessing to be able to offer a good and genuine service to people who love their dogs as much as I love mine.

Dog Walking in Bartow

Bartow is located right off the Peace River, and just 39-miles out of Tampa, in the sunny state of Florida. Though Bartow is a little off the main tourist areas, it is still a great place to visit for some great restaurants and trails to hike along. Home to six veterinarians, you can feel safe knowing that your pup will be well taken care of while visiting.

Head over to the Mary Holland Park for a fun day out on the water. The park is located right off the Blue Heron Lake and offers a playground, fishing, pavilions for shade, and picnic tables for relaxing and gatherings. Your dog will love exploring the park and lake, but make sure to keep him on leash while you visit. 


The Bartow Park is another great park to visit with your furry pal. The park is mainly used for baseball games, but don't let that steer you from coming here. It also features a huge grass field, where your dog will be dying to play fetch on, and a beautiful walking trail that takes you along the park edge.

After a fun day out, make sure to stop into Palace Pizza and grab a bite to eat. Palace Pizza serves traditional Italian food including pasta and pizza, and they even offer a gluten free menu. They also serve gourmet pizzas and subs, and feature a dog friendly patio, so your furry pal can come and dine alongside you. 


With all the amazing restaurants, parks, and shops that your furry best friend can join you at, it is no wonder the two of you come to Bartow to partake in a fun day out.

The Simmers-Young Park in Winter Haven is only eleven miles out of Bartow and an easy car ride for a day of fun with Fido. The park offers ball fields, a picnic area, fishing lake, and a playground all nestled inside the 200-acre park. The best thing about the park is the off leash dog park that comes along with it. The dog park has a divided area for small and large dogs, plus agility equipment to help run out some extra energy. There is a mixture of sand and grass for you pup to play on, and you both can feel safe here since the park is continually patrolled. If your dog would rather just hang at the park, the two of you can enjoy the nice walking trail that is offered, along with a playground, sports field, and picnic area.
