“Giving your pet love & cuddles while you’re away!”

I am an extremely passionate dog lover who will care for your pet when you can’t be there. I rescued a 9 year-old cattle dog three 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!

Growing up around animals made me appreciate how amazing dogs can be. I used to animal sit for most of my neighbors and would regularly walk and play with all of the dogs in the area. I had the joy of adopting my own best friend a few years ago and since he has left I find myself needing to once again see other animals to have fun. I have worked with my vet on training techniques and how to properly care for dogs with anxiety and other minor health concerns. Currently all of my brothers and sisters have dogs and every time I visit home the first thing I tend to do is go to each of their homes and make sure to give enough affection to last them for another year.

Dog Walking in Placida

Placida is a small bedroom community in Charlotte County, Florida. Sitting on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico with the Coral Creek running through it, Placida is the perfect spot for any pup who loves the water. Although there are no veterinarians in Placida, just down the road in Englewood there are three that your pup can visit.

Head out to the Don Pedro Island State Park for a fun afternoon out with your pup. The park has great activities like a beach and tons of hiking trails that you and your pup can explore together. Make sure to keep Fido on a leash since there are endangered species located in the park, and special habitats to help keep them safe.

While hanging out in Placida stop in Villa Capri for a bite to eat. They dish out authentic Italian food, including crab stuffed ravioli or shrimp scampi. Their outdoor patio is the perfect spot to sit and relax with your four legged friend while enjoying a great meal. If Italian isn't on the menu, check out Waterside Grill for some delicious seafood options. They are located on the water and have an amazing patio for you and your pup to dine on. You can even pull your boat up to their dock to eat before heading out to the ocean again.

Your pup will love all the amazing activites he can do with you while hanging out in Placida.
