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!!

“Dedicated,vigilant walker with attention to detail”

Hi! My name is Luis and I just love dogs! They always bring a big smile to my face. I've been a walker for 3 years. I grew up with a cocker spaniel named Lulu and we always had other pets like fish, birds, rabbits, etc, so I know how important it is to care of our animal family members to keep them happy and healthy. I grew up in Atlanta, so I am very familiar with different neighborhoods in town and best routes to take. I love the outdoors, and can't wait to spend some time with your cute pup!

Dog Walking in Jonesboro

Spelled initially as Jonesborough, the city is the county seat of Clayton County. Flush with historical buildings both residential and commercial, this Georgia city seems frozen in time. With Fluffy in tow, you can walk the streets of Jonesboro and take in the beautiful architecture – many of the buildings date back to before the Civil War! There is even a local veterinarian as well as an animal hospital, which is good for pet parents looking to settle down permanently. You’ll also find plenty of fast food joints that welcome Fluffy at their outdoor tables.

While you won’t find a designated bark park within Jonesboro, you can head over to the Rum Creek Park for some fun in the sun. Here, you can take Fluffy for a walk, socialize with the neighborhood pet owners, and watch the local kids partake in afterschool activities.

Hop on the I-75 heading northbound for 25 minutes, and you’ll hit the bustling city of Atlanta, Georgia. If you want to make it a family trip and bring along Fluffy, you can check out facilities like the Piedmont Dog Park. 

Jonesboro's proximity to larger muttropolitan areas like Atlanta makes it the pawfect spot for fur families who prefer to live in a peaceful, quiet town!
