My name is Brittany and I love animals! I currently live on my own and am able to provide transportation if needed. I currently work at an emergency veterinary clinic and have been for over 2 years. Starting in the fall I will be starting classes to become a veterinary technician. I would enjoy helping owners out to ensure their little furry friends get the exercise they need!

Dog Walking in Solon

Solon is a city in eastern Iowa with a population of a little more than 2,500 people. There are several bigger cities nearby, and many people choose to live in Solon to get the small community charm Solon provides, and commute to work in bigger cities each day. Solon has long been a primarily residential city, but with its growing population has come several commercial facilities as well. Many people choose to live in Solon for its excellent school system as well as its parks and recreation programs. There isn't a specified off-leash dog park in Solon, but there are some in surrounding towns, as well as parks within Solon where you can walk your leashed dog.

One of the nicest places to walk your dog in Solon is on the Solon-Lake Macbride Recreation Trail. This trail was once a railway line, but it has recently been converted into part of a network of trails that connect across America. This portion of the trail stretches for just over five miles, and the crushed stone surface is ideal for dog walking, biking, or jogging, and snowmobiling or skiing in the winter. Solon is a lovely place to live with your dog, and exploring the Solon-Lake Macbride Recreation Trail is just the beginning of the adventures you'll have there!
