As a working parent and pet owner I understand the importance of knowing your family is well taken care of while you are away. I am here to provide you that peace of mind. I thrive on helping others and I enjoy the antics of working with animals. I have experience with a wide variety of pets: dogs, cats, horses, birds and even a ferret.

Hi there! My name is Michelle and I am an avid dog lover. I grew up with golden retrievers so I know firsthand that dogs are not just pets, they are family, and I will treat yours as such. I have a flexible full-time work schedule that enables me to walk or babysit pups during the day, throughout the week and weekends. I don’t do this for the money, I do this because dogs bring me joy and I love having a companion. I plan to get a dog of my own this year, but for now I will walk and take care of yours as if they were mine! My building allows dogs and I love having them around my house, so I’m happy to host your pup while you enjoy a trip! I will take all the pictures and videos to ensure they are in good hands. Thank you for sharing your beloved family member with me!

Dog Walking in Marco Island

Marco Island is not only a great vacation destination, it’s also a wonderful place to spend quality time with your pup. Although most of the beaches on this island near Naples do not allow dogs, you can spend time hiking in the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. There are three different trails in the reserve that will take you and Fido through a variety of natural areas, including wetlands and forests. You will even find signage along the way offering information about the plants and animals.

Going out to eat with your pooch is also easy on the island. A great place for lunch or dinner is Mango’s Dockside Bistro. Not only can you order coconut shrimp, whiskey burgers, or baby back ribs, Fido can order off his own menu!  You and your canine companion will love relaxing at the shaded outdoor tables with a great meal and a drink. Another popular destination is Little Bar Restaurant. You can enjoy seafood on the outdoor patio while your pooch enjoys his own bowl of cool water under the table.

When your pup needs medical attention, you will find two veterinarian clinics on the island offering great customer service and convenient appointments. If you are headed out for an early vet appointment, stop by NeNe’s Kitchen for breakfast and sit with a cup of coffee under the umbrella tables on the patio. No matter what your plans for the day, Fido will love hanging out with you and the family on the island.

Pups love to socialize and spend time running around rolling in the grass and sniffing trees. Canine Cove is an amazing dog park where Fido can run off-leash and do just that! There are two separate areas, one for smaller or older dogs, and one for large pups. The park furnishes clean up bags and there is a water fountain where you can fill your pup’s water bowl. Let your pooch sniff some butts and make new friends while you relax on one of the shaded benches. After spending time in the dog park, you can stroll around the perimeter of the area on the walking path.

Not far from the dog park, neighbors can enjoy spending time at the Frank E. Mackle Community Park in the Marco Beach neighborhood. You will need to keep your pooch on a leash, but you can walk along the paths or sit at one of the shaded benches while the kids play on the playground. Near the trails, you can find a drinking fountain where you can refill your water bottles, but you will need to bring your own clean up bags. You will probably see some of your dog loving friend out walking with the pups on warm summer afternoons.

Quiet and peaceful, Winterberry Park is an excellent option to walk your dog after a long day at work. You can stroll around the lake and enjoy the view or sit and relax at one of the shaded benches. Pack lunch and hang out at the picnic area. While Fido is having a snifftastic time peeing on the trees, you and the family can enjoy watching the birds and searching for the eagle’s nest. If you want to go out for some dinner, head over to Nacho Mama’s where you can enjoy some nachos Grande and a margarita while your pooch rests under your outdoor table.

Residents of Marco Island enjoy taking their pups out on the boat to feel the sea breeze. You can access a public boat ramp at Caxambas Park where you can plan a day on the water, or spend time in the 4-acre park. Walking Fido along the bike path or fishing off the pier is a perfect way to spend a weekend afternoon with the family. You and your pup can buy a snack at the concession stand and relax at one of the picnic tables, or sit on a bench along the water and watch for dolphins and manatees.
