“Let’s walk!”

Hi there! I can’t wait to walk your dog! I have a three year old very energetic dog so I know how beneficial having a set walking schedule can be. But I also know how work and other commitments can get in the way of that schedule. That’s where I come in. I am an outdoor enthusiast and I love to walk, especially with a furry friend along.

Dog Walking in Sarasota

Is your corgi’s belly so low to the ground that you can’t see daylight between his fur and the grass? Does your spayed boxer look like a soon-to-be mother of seven squirmy pups? Perhaps your show dog is in perfect health, but he could use a bit of a tune-up on the agility course? Then wander down to 17th Street to 17th Street Paw Park. This dog park allows dogs to run off-leash and has plenty of water and shade to help keep cool while your dog scampers about Paw Park’s agility course.

Agility courses not for you and your dog? If your dog’s hips and joints just aren’t up for the high-impact activity required for agility courses, take him to Arlington Park Dog Park on Waldemere Street. Arlington Park Dog Park is an off-leash dog park with wide-open spaces perfect for leisurely strolls and games for dogs of all ages and active abilities. Dogs must be on their leashes while entering and while leaving the park.

Who’s up for a swim? Red Bug Slough Reserve has a great pond in the middle of its greenery so people and canines can splash about to cool down on a hot day. Red Bug Slough Reserve has many trails of varying lengths – all of which are nicely shaded – winding through its lush, natural landscaping. This park is open from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. April through October and from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. November through March.
