“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 Homeland

Homeland, Florida has been around since before the Civil War. It was once called Bethel. It was the halfway point between two major settlements which made it the place to stop when traveling. People began to settle here because it seemed like you could get just about anything if you sat here long enough and waited for it to come to you. It has never been a very big town, but in 1956, the town was split in half. Many of its homes and buildings that had been a part of the thriving city would eventually become Bartow, Florida. But Bartow didn't forget that it took a piece Homeland's precious history, and founded Homeland Heritage Park to preserve it.

Homeland Heritage Park is eleven miles away from the center of Homeland. You can bring your dog and come walk the original neighborhood, which the community has done their best to preserve. The school building, original town center, and some homes are still open to the public. While your dog cannot go inside, he is welcome to walk around with you as you learn about the city and its history.

While you are in Homeland, be sure to stop in at the town hall. Here, you can pick up a map of other historic areas right here in Homeland. The quiet streets are the perfect place for a relaxing walk with your leashed pup.

In the mood for pizza? Of course you are! And you should be, because Palace Pizza is just eleven miles from you -- even closer if you're already planning to visit Homeland Heritage Park. You can bring your dog along to enjoy a slice of their famous chicken wing pizza. The gooey cheese will make your mouth water and your taste buds sizzle. Of course, you could just go for some pasta. The locals love the baked ziti with homemade pasta sauce. As long as you keep your pup on the leash, you can enjoy pizza outside at any of their outdoor tables. Or, you could grab one to go and take it to the park for a barkingly awesome picnic.

The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has worked their magic once again to give you and your dog an EPIC trail system that will have your tail wagging and your dog's feet moving! The Fort Fraser Trail is named after a Civil War soldier who died in 1835. All along the way, you will find markers that tell the tale of the fateful night. If you are a butterfly lover, you'll like the planted flowers all along the trail which will bring the butterflies to you. Remember, this is an on-leash trail that is almost 8 miles long. Bring lots of water, because the rest areas do not have any. And don't fur-get the waste bags!

If you want some Southern comfort food, then you should come over to Cozy Oaks. The staff here will greet you and your dog with a welcome smile. You can get some coffee to wash down your biscuits and gravy, or order an omelet with loaded "taters". The locals rave about the meatloaf sandwiches. All of their outdoor tables are pet-friendly, but you will need to bring a water dish in order for your dog to be served. This is a cozy, laid-back eatery that the locals describe as a budget-friendly place to get a full belly and a happy soul.
