Animals have been a part of my life and home since I was born. I grew up around dogs ranging from dachshunds, basset hounds, and golden retrievers. I currently have a 7-year-old English Bulldog of my own named Pearl who I got when she was 8 weeks old. She is quite the character. She is very active and enjoys walks/hikes on local trails, especially when its cooler outside. Dogs give me joy and I look forward to meeting yours!

I love spending time with dogs whenever I can! I have grown up living with at least 1 dog my entire life, and my friends always joke about how much I baby my dog to always make sure she's okay. Because of this, I dogsit for friends fairly often, and I've always had fantastic experiences working with new animals.

Dog Walking in Jefferson

The city of Jefferson, Georgia in Jackson County was named after President Thomas Jefferson, and it's home to more than 10,000 people. Located in picturesque northeast Georgia, Jefferson is a wonderful place to call home. The city's scenery includes rolling hills, quaint farms, lush greenery, and small lakes. Once primarily an agricultural community, today Jefferson has a diverse economy and a growing workforce. The charming small-town feel of Jefferson is complemented by the excellent Jackson County parks and recreation system! There isn't an off-leash dog park in Jefferson, but you'll find off-leash parks, county parks, and trails just a short drive away.

There are a handful of restaurants in Jefferson that are dog-friendly, so you won't need to worry about leaving your pup at home when you head out for a bite. One of these places is called Swirlee's FroYo Frozen Yogurt on North Public Square. There are outdoor tables in front of Swirlee's where your dog can stay at your side while you eat, but be advised -- they can't come in with you while you choose your froyo. Among the options that Swirlee's offers are flavors like spiced apple pie, Southern butter pecan, and island coconut. Once your sweet tooth is satisfied, it's time for you and your dog to head to a nearby off-leash park!
