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 Nicholson

There's a good reason why so many songs are written about Georgia. The nature and beauty that can be found in every corner of the state is simply unparalleled. The city of Nicholson in north Georgia is no exception. Nicholson is surrounded by forest preserves and parks where you and Fido can explore to your hearts' content and make un-fur-gettable memories. 

Like other small Georgian towns, Nicholson is a quaint place with a close-knit community. Although Nicholson is tiny, there are plenty of open community spaces and local businesses where you will see other inhabitants with their dogs. The town is most well-known for its Daisy Festival, a local festival that has little to do with daisies and more to do with food, shopping, and fostering good relations within the community.

Nicholson is located right above Athens, Georgia, home of the much-loved Georgia Bulldogs and the University of Georgia. Athens is pawsitively packed with dog-friendly places, and it's less than 20 minutes outside of town. Similarly, Atlanta, often referred to as the "Capital of the South", is about an hour away, so you and Fido have plenty of opportunities to embark on an adventure!

Located right in the center of Nicholson is East Jackson Park. This park is not a dog park, but it has plenty of open space for you and your pooch to get some fresh air and stretch your legs. The park also has a baseball field where you will often see games being played. Because the park is not specifically for dogs, amenities are limited. Although there are bathrooms for humans, you will want to take your own doggie poop bags for your pup. This park is a great place to spend a Saturday, so feel free to bring the whole family -- furry members included -- for a day of fun!

Barretts Mill is just ten minutes down the road from Nicholson. This small Athens neighborhood is special because it has two incredible places you can take your pooch! First, head to Sandy Creek Park, a giant nature preserve that is almost 800 acres in size. This park not only has plenty of space to run and play in the beautiful greenery, but it also has a lake where you and your pooch can go fishing. Once you are done there, make sure you head to Sandy Creek Nature Preserve. This preserve features many exhibits where you and Fido can learn more about the plants and animals that call this beautiful space home!

Another pawtastic place to visit with your pooch is Bishop Park in Athens. This park is approximately fifteen minutes from Nicholson, but it's well worth the short drive. This 30+ acre park is complete with sports fields, picnic spots, playgrounds, and trails. You can start the day with a run or walk on the paved trails in the park, and end it with a picnic in one of the many pavilions the park has to offer. Don't forget to bring some supplies, like water, waste bags, and Fido's favorite toys, since there aren't any doggie amenities here.

Nicholson is an incredible place for anyone who loves the great outdoors to live. It is a thirty-minute drive from Nicholson to Nantahala National Forest, a forest over 830 square miles in size.

One corner of the forest is located in Georgia, where you'll find an abundance of greenery, scenery and beauty. The park also has nearly 100 miles of trails to hike and explore. You can choose to spend an afternoon at the park, or take a weekend trip and do some camping with your pooch!
