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!!

I have always loved animals as a child and would often bring stray dogs home and care for them; as I was an outcast kid/teen with little to no friends. Ever since I can remember I have always had some type of animal. From dogs, birds, crawfish, hamsters, rabbits, geico, and a few turtles; even camels. My recent experience with 2 displaced cats (Bob)-Tabby & (Cali)-Calico is what changed my entire life and connection with animals.

Dog Walking in Riverdale

Riverdale is located just 14 miles away from Atlanta, so you and Fido are just a bone's throw away from dog-friendly fun! Riverdale is also known as the childhood home of the famous American singer, Ciara. While it doesn't have much to offer pooches and their parents, Riverdale does have its own animal hospital so you know your pet will be in good hands in case of accident or emergency.

If you're visiting Riverdale, you won't find any dog-friendly lodging accommodations apart from AirBnB rentals. Atlanta is your best bet for pet-friendly places to stay, with over 130 options that welcome our furry friends!

If you end up visiting Atlanta, you'd be barking mad to miss out on Chattahoochee River National Recreational Area. This 10,000+ acre area comes complete with paw-lenty of recreational activities to enjoy, including hiking, wildlife watching, fishing, and so much more. Leashed dogs are welcome to explore most parts of the park.

Just 6 miles northeast of Riverdale, you'll find Reynolds Nature Preserve. This area is much smaller than the national forest in Atlanta at just over 150 acres, but there's still plenty of furrific activities to enjoy! Dogs are allowed here as long as they are leashed and well-behaved.
