“Enjoying the grace to bless others!”

Before starting to pursue a career in Medicine, I've always had a passion for animal care. Being able to spend time with animals, whether it's dogs, horses, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, or even fishes and reptiles, is always a pleasure for me. I have experience in training and taking care of all types of dogs, and it has been a blessing to be able to offer a good and genuine service to people who love their dogs as much as I love mine.

My adult career has taken me along a different path, but my childhood dream inspired me to volunteer in a veterinarian clinic for a year.

Dog Walking in Winter Haven

Winter Haven, Florida is nicknamed the "Chain of Lakes" city for a reason - it's home to over fifty lakes, as well as beautiful historic neighborhoods and gardens. With so many outdoor spaces, it's a great place to explore alongside your four-legged companion!

Looking for a dog park? Winter Haven's got you covered. The Simmers-Young Dog Park is a local favorite. Open daily from 6 am to 10 pm, this 200-acre park offers separate fenced-in areas for large and small dogs, as well as a lake and picnic area. Locals love the access to wildlife - in fact, if you get there early enough (around 7-9am) you can see eagles diving into the lake for fish.

If you're interested in hiking the area, try the Fort Fraser Trail. At almost eight miles long, this former railway line offers a paved trail and access to wooded areas. Want something a little longer? The General James A. Van Fleet State Trail is almost thirty miles long. Winding through swamps, citrus groves, and cattle land, this gentle loop is well worth the time. The Carter Road Trail offers less mileage but more elevation, making it a moderate route for the energetic pooch.

As far as fun, community favorite, events go, the Simmers-Young Dog Park is the best option. In February, there's a "Scales & Tails" Pet Festival featuring vendors and entertainment. In September, there's a Hispanic Heritage Festival which allows on-leash dogs.
