Hi there! My name is Brooke. I have had dogs in my family ever since I could remember, from the time I was learning to walk through when I began fostering in college before adopting two myself. I've always had a passion for animal care and jumped at every opportunity. I volunteer with a few rescue organizations in Dallas, went through a veterinary tech program including pet CPR certification, and have even helped the birth of multiple litters. I have experience with dogs of all sizes, from yorkies up to great danes! I can't wait to meet your pup and ensure they get lots of healthy exercise and extra love while you are away.

“Your Pup is my Passion!”

Your pet deserves love and attention, and I love to give them attention! Each pet is different and I will listen to your needs and care for your pet as you expect. I am passionate about animals and truly enjoy caring for them. Recently I lost my dog of fifteen years. I was heartbroken! Not ready to get another dog, I took my heart break and turned it into love for other dogs. I began walking dogs at a local shelter and pet sitting for friends. I look forward to taking care of your pet too!

Dog Walking in Destin

Destin, Florida is one of the most pet-friendly cities in the country! As you walk through the city and enjoy Florida’s Emerald Coast, you’ll spot dogs of all shapes and sizes enjoying the city’s amenities and attractions.

In the heart of the city is the Destin Bark Park. Dogs over 35 pounds are kept on one side of the park while smaller dogs are kept on the other. This park is free to use and heavily enjoyed by both residents and visitors to Destin. There are wide-open spaces for running, beautiful shade trees for hot days, water fountains for both pets and their humans, park benches, and a friendly crowd of regulars! What’s not to love?

Nearby Henderson Beach State Park allows on-leash dogs. No additional fee is required for well-behaved pooches. Note that the dogs are not allowed on beaches in the park, but are welcome to use the campground and nature trails with their owners. Due to a city-wide ordinance, dogs are not allowed on beaches unless their resident owners file for a special permit. If your dog is a water lover, pet-friendly pontoon boat rentals are available at some of Destin’s local businesses.

Looking for a place to walk Fido? Try the Harborwalk Village, a busy dock that has restaurants, shopping, and fresh seafood pulled in daily. Or, check out the Crystal Beach community – wide sidewalks and gorgeous beach houses make this the perfect Destin stroll.
