Hi! My name is Joey. I am born and raised here in the Bay Area and love animals, especially dogs! Since I was brought into this world, I have had at least 2 dogs around and this is the first time in my life that I don't. I don't have my own dogs to walk, so I would love the opportunity to walk yours! I'm a positive, easy-going, caring individual. I like to laugh just as much as I like to make people laugh. My life goal is to motivate, inspire, and care for other individuals, especially those at the high school level. I have my MA in Sport Psychology and I coach basketball at the high school level, so this is my way to help the younger generation face challenges with a positive mentality and to learn from each and every situation.

Dog Walking in Columbus

Columbus is Georgia’s second largest city, and the county seat of Muscogee County. Civil War history, museums, and outdoor recreation are just some of the city’s highlights. There are also plenty of dog friendly parks, restaurants, and trails. Pups living here definitely give this city two paws up!

There’s no doubt that Columbus takes outdoor fun seriously. There are over 30 parks throughout, so you’ll have no problem finding a place to walk your furry BFF. Lakebottom Park is centrally located in MidTown, and has all the amenities of a pawsome park. Your pup will especially love the paved walking trail. Heath Park is a beautifully forested park that offers a taste of nature amidst the busy streets of Columbus. Take your pooch for a woodsy walk and let him get his paws a little dirty. For something a bit more civilized, head over to Britt David Park and walk or jog around the asphalt path.

With all the playing, hiking, and adventure seeking, your pup will likely get a bump or bruise at some point. When she does, she’ll have over two dozen Columbus veterinary clinics to choose from. From Columbus Veterinary Medical to Weems Road Animal Hospital, she’ll have all her health needs met.

When your pup needs to let loose, take her over to the Oxbow Support Facility Dog Park. This off leash open space is located in the Oakland Park and Carter Acres area. Your four legged friend can romp and frolic with new playmates or dash around during a game of fetch. Small dogs have their own area to play, so petite pooches won’t get overwhelmed. Benches are provided for pet parents, so go ahead and relax while your fur baby is having the time of her life. For an on leash walk, just hop over to the Riverwalk Trail and continue your pup’s exercise. By the time you head home, she’ll be dog tired!

The Chattahoochee Riverwalk Trail is one of Columbus’ main attractions. This 22 mile trail begins near Lake Oliver in the Cascade Hills neighborhood. Clip on your pup’s leash and head out for a nice jog or walk. You’ll have plenty of mileage to get your pal tuckered out. Not only will you enjoy waterfront scenery, you’ll also get in a little sightseeing. The trail passes places like the National Civil War Naval Museum, the National Infantry Museum and Golden Park baseball stadium. This trail is also pupular with cyclists, so make sure your pup doesn’t mind bikers passing by.

Is your pup ready for some time outdoors? Grab her leash and head over to the Cooper Creek Park. This is a perfect place to spend some quality time with your furry friend. Take a few laps around the walking trail. She’ll love the chance to move her four legs while basking in the Georgia sunshine. You can even stop and take advantage of the fitness equipment along the way. If your pup gets excited around ducks and geese, you may want to steer clear of the main reservoir. This park also has playgrounds, sport courts and picnic areas. Sounds puptastic!

With all the dog friendly restaurants in Columbus, it’s easy to have a night out on the town with your pup. If you have a hankering for a juicy burger, head over to the Cannon Brew Pub. If Italian is more your style, check out Picasso Pizza or Your Pie. Both serve up piping hot pizza that will hit the spot. All three of these restaurants welcome pets in their outdoor seating areas. After dinner, burn off some calories with a walk at the Woodruff Riverfront Park. The paved path runs alongside the Chattahoochee River so your pup can enjoy some lovely waterfront scenery.

This neighborhood is home to the Muscogee Flat Rock Park. Two legged park patrons are drawn to the mountain bike trails, disc golf courses, playgrounds and picnic areas. Your four legged friend will be more interested in the 2.3 mile loop trail. Clip on her leash and head over for some afternoon doggy cardio. If your pup likes to stray off the beaten path, follow one of the side trails and let her discover new smells. She can hunt for the perfect stick or keep her eyes peeled for squirrels. Don’t forget to bring some water, as all that exploring will make her thirsty!
