Hi! My name is Jazz, and I’m a fellow animal lover just like you! I currently own an African Pygmy hedgehog named Wensworth, but he wouldn’t like it if I put a leash on him haha. So instead, I ask you to give me the honor of walking, and loving your dog while you get your human things done! I have lots of experiences with a wide variety of breeds, and understand the different personality types. I’m a psychology major at FGCU, concentrating my studies in animal-assisted therapy.

“Peace of mind when I'm with your pup! 🥰🐾”

I started volunteering with the local humane society years ago and within a month they hired me because of how great I handled and understood the dogs! Then I adopted my first dog! I truly believe that there are no bad dogs; just misunderstood ones. And they call me the "dog whisperer". I will give your pup all the love and care in the most professional manner. I also take great care of cats! I take all safety precautions and will follow your directions.

Dog Walking in Sanibel

With plenty of sun, sand, and one of the best places to have a second home according to the Wall Street Journal, Sanibel will make a great summer destination and home for people and dog-lovers alike. Not only that, but the town is known as the best place for shelling in Southern Florida, with dozens of unique shells found on its various beaches that have washed up from the Gulf of Mexico. Located on Sanibel Island, Sanibel is lucky to have access to many dog-friendly beaches and nature preserves, and plenty of in-town restaurants for you and Fido.

Secluded at the northern peak of the island is Bowman's Beach and Park, a dog-friendly area that boasts forested walking trails and a sandy shoreline. Fido is welcome at the beach and park anytime while on a leash, and can play in the water, run around on the beach, or take a stroll along the paved trails. The beach and park also offer benches, trash bins, and picnic areas.

Other beach options include the Bailey's Beach Park, a small forested area with dense palm-trees and paved walking trails. Fido is allowed on the trails here, but not on the beach. If you want some different sandy shore access, head down to Tarpon Bay Road Beach Park, where Fido must remain on a leash, but can roam the beaches from 7 AM to 7 PM.

The island has four animal hospitals, and over the years, has paws-itively become one of the best places to be for you and your best friend!

The Wulfert neighborhood is the largest on Sanibel Island, but is mostly taken up by nature. The entire northern half of the neighborhood is part of the J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, a dog-friendly nature preserve that offers driving routes for scenic car rides, hiking trails, and canoe launch sites. Dogs are welcome, but must remain on leashes 6 feet or less, and owners must come prepared with clean-up bags. The preserve can get pretty busy during the summer months, so for something quieter, the Blind Pass Park provides a small getaway for you and Fido, with a small open, grassy area and paved walking trails, with gorgeous views of the water. The park has benches and trash bins available.

Scenic views of the water, long shorelines and access to the forested area of the park- how can life get any better for Fido at the Sanibel City Center neighborhood? You and your dog have access to all these great features when heading to the Gulfside City Park Beach, a dog-friendly beach and park for leashed dogs that allows them on the beach, in the water or on the nature trails of the park. The beach has a dog-sized water fountain, trash bins, grills and picnic areas in the parking lot. The Lighthouse Beach Park is also a dog-friendly beach area, with public access to fishing piers and the boardwalk as long as Fido remains on a leash.

South Sanibal is a quiet neighborhood that is mostly made up of residential homes and small shops. The Bailey Homestead Preserve takes up a 28 acre land plot along the shore, and is made up of marshlands, nature trails and a small area with a pavilion and open field. Dogs are welcome at the preserve, but must remain on a leash 6 feet or less, with access to trash bins, picnic areas, and water fountains. In-town is the Island Paws, a dog-friendly shop that sells natural dog food, high-quality accessories and lots of toys for Fido! Dogs are welcome in the store but must remain on a leash.

The Causeway Islands is a group of islands that help provide structure to the bridge that links Sanibel Island to the mainland. Located off the northeast shoreline of Sanibel, the islands are dog-friendly and separated into Island A and Island B. Island A has a parking area and surrounded by the ocean, with access to restrooms, grills, and picnic areas. Island B doesn't have a parking area and can only be accessed by the pedestrian bridge. The area does have a small dock though, is lined with palm trees, and provides access to swimming, water fountains and trash bins. Fido must remain on a leash when visiting both islands.

The Pine Ridge Road and Summerlin Road neighborhood is about 11 miles north of Sanibel, on the mainland in Fort Myers Beach. Although a bit of a drive, the town has the Woof-A-Hatchee Dog Park, a fenced-in park for Fido which provides separate areas for smaller and larger dogs with dirt and mulch ground cover, so beware of dirty puppy paws! Both areas feature double-gated fences, covered seating areas, clean-up stations, and water fountains. If you're looking to stay in the neighborhood, the Candlewood Suites is a dog-friendly hotel that allows pets up to any size stay any amount of nights for a fee.
