I've been a dog owner and walker since I was 5 years old. I've had many different breeds ranging from Rottweiler to Jack Russell Terrier. My current family dogs are two golden retrievers and I walk them at the same time so i'm i'm familiar with large dogs and can handle multiple dogs. I'm a fairly young and healthy person so I can keep up with any dog that may need a longer more energetic walk. I'd be more than happy to fill you and your pets' needs.

Hey, guys! I’m Kathleen, and I currently own a 3 year old Golden Retriever named Champ. I am so excited to meet you and your fur baby! I have been passionate about dogs since I was 5 years old. Since then, I have devoted my time to educating myself on countless breed specifics such as dietary restrictions, personality differences, energy levels, and overall temperaments. From an early age, I made it a priority to socialize our dog. As a result, I have become very familiar with the varying energies and demeanor each breed carries inherently. I have been so lucky to make so many friends through Champ, and I can’t wait to meet your best friend!

Hi! I’m Marisa and I am looking to make some extra money and have fun! I have 2 dogs myself but I have not been able to see them since I’ve been away at college. I have a pit-bulldog mix and and a shih-poo. I have dog-sat and walked multiple of my friends dogs and love all animals!
Hi! My name is Danielle and I am a Graduate student at George Washington University. As a student, I don’t have the means to take care of my own dog right now, but I have plenty of time to play with yours! I have experience walking and overnight sitting for dogs back home in PA. I love going on walks, being outside, and meeting new furry friends (I miss my English Setter and Lab mix from back home so much). Can’t wait to walk for you!
Saint Simons Island, locally known as "The Island" or St. Simons, is a place that gets plenty of visitors for its warm weather, sandy beaches, restaurants, and historic sites! The best part? The whole island is extremely dog-friendly! Throughout the island, you'll find more than 20 restaurants, cafes, and pubs that will allow you to bring your dog with you to chow down.
When it comes to dog-friendly accommodations, you can find plenty of those as well -- more than 30 places where your dog is welcome to curl up next to you, in fact. Saint Simons Island offers a variety of lodging options, from cottages and condos to chain hotels.
The island has two animal hospitals that will be able to provide emergency care in case your pup needs it, as well as a couple of other veterinary services. If you need to restock on some doggie supplies while you're here -- whether it's food, toys, treats, or apparel -- just visit the Island Dog Pet Store, where you can find anything you need!
While you're on the island, you should visit the famous Fort Frederica National Monument, built in 1736. You should also stop by St. Simons Island Light, a scenic, historic lighthouse that's a pawpular venue for weddings and other events. Dogs aren't allowed inside the museum, but they're more than welcome to sniff around the grounds as long as they're leashed.
Saint Simons Island Beaches are a great place to let your pup dig in the sand and dip his paws into the ocean during the off-season. From October to mid-May, doggies are allowed to romp off their leads on the beaches as long as they are well-behaved and under voice command. If your pup thinks he's the Alpha in your pack, you might want to restrain him on a leash no longer than ten feet. If you decide to spend the day here, it goes without saying that you are responsible for cleaning your doggo's mess. There are miles and miles of beaches that you can explore with your pooch!
Saint Simons Island is so pet-friendly that it even has its own dog park! Frederica Park Dog Park features two separate areas for small and large breeds and offers drinking water for thirsty pups. Other things that this park brings to the table include shaded areas on both sides of the park as well as benches so the dog pawrents can rest while watching over their pooches. Near the dog park, you'll find a children's playground, which makes this place the perfect spot for the whole family. Just looking for a quick walk? Leash up and hit one of the walking trails.
If you'd like to explore more beaches in the area, head to Jekyll Island Beach, which is around 20 miles from Saint Simons Island. Here, doggies are allowed to dig in the sand and swim in the water all year round as long as they are leashed. There are certain areas where doggos are not allowed -- mostly in the South end -- so you'll want to make sure you pay attention to signage. The beaches aren't usually crowded at all, which makes this trip a peaceful adventure with your pooch. Don't forget to bring your own drinking water and waste bags!
While beaches are a lot of fun, some doggos prefer to socialize in a doggie park. For the land-loving dogs, there's a perfect place nearby called North Glynn Dog Park. The park is just 7 miles away from Saint Simons Island, and it has separate areas where small dogs and large dogs can romp around. The play areas are mostly shaded, and there are places for dog owners to sit which are also shaded. The park also provides water fountains and clean-up stations for a pawfect experience! This dog park isn't the largest, but it has enough room to run and play, and that's all Fido really wants!
This island is an absolute doggie heaven! Other than the fact that doggos are allowed on all beaches, the place is pawsitively packed with more than 20 dog-friendly eateries. If you're feeling hungry and need a place to grab a bite, you'll have plenty of options! Craving fresh seafood? Head to Iguanas Seafood Restaurant. Need some downhome country cookin'? Southern Soul Barbecue has got you covered! Bubba Garcia's, Island Pho, Jonesy's Pizza & Pub and many more restaurants in town offer just about anything you might want, from seafood to Mexican cuisine. Want a coffee or some light bites? Palm Coast Coffee and Pub is a furrific option for a hot drink, or visit Sunset Slush for a sweet treat in the summer!
