“Giving your dog all the cuddles til you get home!”

I am an extremely passionate dog lover who will care for your pet when you can’t be there. I rescued a 7 year-old cattle dog two 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!

My three fur babies are a 8 year old chocolate lab, a 10 year old hound mix and a 3 year old black lab... the hound is about 30 lbs and the labs are 65+ pounds that think they are all lap dogs, full of energy and love their walks!!

“I CAN teach your old dog new tricks”

Animals are my passion and I have experience walking and caring for dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages. I also have a background in animal behavior and training, so I feel comfortable walking dogs of all activity levels. I am a volunteer for the suncoast humane society and regularly walk dogs and help them maintain behaviors until they find their forever home. I have a rescue named Mako, who I regularly take for walks, jogs, hikes, and beach trips. It would be my pleasure to care for your pup!

Dog Walking in Port Charlotte

Port Charlotte was one of the “25 Best Places to Retire” in 2015 according to Forbes, one of the top ten favorite retirement States in U.S. News, and number one out of 25 retirement places according to CNNMoney.com in 2009. That explains why there are over 6,000 dogs in Port Charlotte, which means there are plenty of fun for Fido when you visit.

Ready to let Fido run? Pace Park on Bayshore Drive is such an amazing park that many people there do not even have a dog. The view is exquisite, grass and trees are lush and well cared-for, and it is huge. The really unique thing (and local favorite) about this park is the exercise equipment for humans. There are over a dozen weight training machines in the park with trainers if needed. The dogs will also enjoy doggy gyms, play equipment, toys, water play, and beachfront.

Another park on Bayshore Drive is Edgewater with about three acres of fenced-in greenery, separate small/mature dog area, benches, a pavilion, water hoses, poop bags, and even a playground right outside the fence for the kids to play on. It is also well-lit for nighttime play. There is no limit to the fun Fido can have in Port Charlotte.
