“Giving your dog all the cuddles til you get home!”

I am an extremely passionate dog lover who will care for your pet when you can’t be there. I rescued a 7 year-old cattle dog two years ago and would love to be around even more dogs on a daily basis. I can drop in and visit them during the day or take them for a nice walk in the evening. I also love being active so if your dog likes frisbee or fetch, I’m the walker for you. I will be sure to treat your pet with all the love and respect I would my own, so rest assured they are in great hands!

“I like dogs more than I like people”

I love dogs more than people. To be honest, it's a privilege for me to walk your dog because my ol'e pup lives 300 miles away. This is a great way for me to earn extra cash while I finish up my last semester of college. Thank you!

Dog Walking in Captiva

Captiva is a small island community in Lee County, Florida with less than 400 full-time residents. There are only two vet clinics available on Captiva Island, but dozens more are available on the mainland if you’re up for a drive.

Some of the best amenities in this isolated island community can be found fifteen miles south in Sanibel. There you can find Bowman’s Beach: a gorgeous, secluded beach with human bathrooms, on-site grills, and a picnic area for cookouts. This beautiful white sand beach allows leashed pups to romp and play all day, and it’s a great shelling destination for humans!

If you’re not in the mood for the beach, try the J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. This activity is great for pups who love car rides: it’s a driving tour through a wildlife refuge full of birds, manatees, dolphins, lizards, and more. You and your pup are welcome to exit your car at any time to get a closer look at the nature -- just make sure Fido’s on a leash!

For a delicious meal, drive just seven minutes from Captiva until you reach The Island Cow. This fun, laid-back restaurant has endless dining options: quesadillas, French toast, patty melts, and chicken fajita sandwiches are some of the most popular. Dogs are welcome on the covered outdoor patio and are almost always welcomed with cold iced water.
