I am a pet parent myself and know it can be stressful to find the right person to take care of your "baby" while you are away from home. I have owned big dogs for the past 20+ years. I have watched and/or fostered all sizes of dogs. I can handle dog aggressive dogs (I have one now), dogs with high prey drive (had one of those), and happy go lucky dogs (had one of those too). I know trusting someone to enter your home and take care of your dog is stressful until you find the right person, I'm hoping to be that person.

Hi, I am Cierra! I am currently a rising senior in a BSN-RN program in college. I have been around dogs my whole life; my family dog, Lucy, was my first companion that I spent 12 years of my early life with. I now have my own puppy, Odin, who is a hyper 11 month old German Shepherd/Lab mix that I absolutely adore :) I love walking/running and I love dogs, so I figured why not do what I love with the animals that I love while helping people out! It’s definitely a win-win-win situation!

“"I am dog's best friend"”

To me, pets are family, and family is life! And as such, I treat and love all pets with the same level as care as I do family (if not more, hehe!) Please contact me if you are looking for an active, educated, honest, trustworthy, communicative, punctual, and professional person to take care of your "furry child" while you are away. I am more than willing to accommodate to any special requests that may be needed, just ask.

Hello. Isn't this a perfect solution? Your dog wants to walk and so do I! While my children are grown and I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, I still find there is plenty of time on my hands. I spend some of this time going for a walk and enjoying the outdoors. I'd love to share some of that outdoor time with your fur baby. I've had dogs in my life as long as I can remember. I'm experienced with everything from a small pug, Jack Russell and beagles to larger breeds like a Catahoula, shepherd or bully breeds. I really have no preference or favorite type of dog because, just like people, each dog brings it's own personality and gift to the relationship. I'm sure your pup and I could enjoy a nice walk together.

Dog Walking in Cocoa

The town of Cocoa sits on Florida's Indian River, and is a great spot for tourists since their downtown is home to a historical business district. Filled with amazing tours, restaurants, and activities to do, your pup is going to love hanging around Cocoa with you. With fourteen veterinarians located in the city, your dog will be feeling both happy and healthy while you explore Cocoa together.

Grab a drink at The Dog and Bone British Pub with your pup by your side. This traditional pub welcomes your dog to hang out with you inside their establishment. The staff is super welcoming to all dogs, and even keeps bones behind the counter to hand out. If you both get a tad hungry, stop into Ryan's Village Pizza for a bite to eat. They offer great tasting pizza, and welcome your dog on their outdoor patio with a bone and bowl of water.

Head over to Junny Rios Martinez Park for a fun walk. The park offers a pavilion, basketball courts, bathrooms, tennis courts, and a playground. There is a great walking trail that goes through and around the park where your pup can get a good walk in, as well as some romping time on the open grassy areas.

Cocoa is a great city filled with wonderful things that you and your pup can do together.
