“Atlanta’s top walker!”

Hello! I am a life-long-dog-lover with over 20 years of combined dog owning experience. My current dog is a 14 year old border collie rescue who I adopted as a 9 month old puppy. I have volunteered at Furkids as well as Cherokee County Humane Society and am a passionate advocate of dog welfare. I have a degree in Biology and am an avid runner. I have been hiking and running with my dog for years and am looking forward to the opportunity to walk yours. : ) Covid vaccinated ✅

Hope all is well, my name is DeCarlo Tatum Jr, I live in Atlanta Ga. My experience with dogs has been an amazing journey. My love for dogs begin at a young age, in high school I wanted to become a Veterinarian. After I graduated from high school, I was bestowed the opportunity to intern as a vet tech at the Atlanta Humane Society for a summer project, in the city of Atlanta. It was an amazing experience, I also had the opportunity to work for one of the most popular dog day cares in Atlanta, Ga, Wag A Lot. There, I bathed dogs, dog sit and I was a lead Wag for both yards.Last but not least I cared for my father and mother dogs ( American PitBulls) for 12years!! I believe that your pet and I will develop a great bond, I believe that pets are people too!!

Dog Walking in Clarkston

The city of Clarkston is located in DeKalb County and is only 10 miles from downtown Atlanta. This small town is known as the “most diverse square mile in America” -- it's estimated that half of the population is from outside of the United States! Although only 1.4 miles in size, this community is convenient to anything a dog owner could need! This area offers local pets 12 off-leash parks in a 10-mile radius, and 2 vets within the city limits.

The city dog park is located within Milam Park and gives residential and visiting dogs the chance to run leash-free in its beautiful wooded enclosure. Open from dawn to dusk every day, this 24,000-square-foot space allows for plenty of space to fetch and mingle with the other local pups. There is running water for thirsty guests, and plenty of benches for owners to sit at and enjoy the furry shenanigans! Unfortunately, this park has some breed restrictions, as Pit bulls and Rottweilers are not welcome.

Pit bull and Rottie parents don't need to worry, though! Just 4.6 miles away, they can play their hearts out at the Glenlake Dog Park. The fully-fenced off-leash area has plenty of room to play, as well as plenty of shade and drinking water (which is greatly appreciated during the hot Georgia summers). This Decantur park offers plenty of activities for the whole family as well, including several tennis courts, an exceptional playground for the furless kiddos, and pavilions to enjoy a nice lunch.
