“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!

Dog Walking in Punta Gorda

Located on the shores of a pristine estuary from the Gulf of Mexico, Punta Gorda is known for its’ small-town charm, combined with big-city recreation and amenities. That makes it the perfect place to enjoy the Florida sand and surf with your beloved four-legged friend.

Punta Gorda has one dog park, the Hounds of Henry Street Dog Park. It is a fully fenced-in area with a separate small dog section. The park is usually pretty busy, so there are many opportunities to let your dog off-leash for socialization. Amenities include benches, picnic tables, water spigots, and bowls.

Punta Gorda is known for its’ famed Harborwalk. Built after Hurricane Charley of 2004, the Harborwalk meanders alongside the Peace River for 2.4 miles, offering vistas of blue water and mangrove trees. You and Fido will pass by a park, the Barron Collier Bridge and the Gilchrist Bridge, a small Tiki Bar, and the Fisherman’s village.

Need something longer? At the end of the Harborwalk, the path connects to the Punta Gorda Linear Park, which goes to the downtown area. Not wild enough? The Alligator Creek Preserve is located nearby, with four miles of public nature trails. Leashed dogs are welcome on the path, which has inhabitants ranging from armadillos and alligators to otters and eagles.
