“Loving on your dog when you’re not able to!”

I have been pet sitting/dog walking for over seven years and have been doing it full time for more than a year. I grew up with labs at home and hold a special place for them in my heart. I love animals and love to spend time with them. Currently I am learning obedience training so that I can better serve my clients. I have puppy fever and hope that getting the opportunity to take care of your little friend will hold me over till my husband and I can afford one of our own.

Dog Walking in Metropolis

Metropolis is a sprawling little city nestled on the shores of the Ohio River. Better known for being the official "Hometown of Superman," Metropolis unites comic fans and history buffs from all over to enjoy celebrating this Superman-themed city. Two super veterinarians will be happy to welcome your pup to their clinics in case Fido catches the flu while you're in town.


Mutt-ropolis is a furtastic city not only for its super heroes, but for its super doggoes, too! Venture outside with Fido for a wooftacular time exploring the grand Fort Massac State Park in Metropolis. Famed for being Illinois' first State Park, Fort Massac offers residents and travelers alike to dive into the rich history of the region. Take Fido for an educative stroll around the park to read the informative plaques and tour around the preserved replica of the fort (doggoes not allowed inside buildings or visitors center). Lots of hiking trails and pawpular camping spots are open to the public, but it's best to reserve in advance. Before leaving, make sure to walk alongside the majestic Ohio River flowing past the park.

When in Metropolis, you and Fido will need to stay overnight in order to check off your super list of things to do and see. For that, reserve a pup-friendly room at the Holiday Inn Express Metropolis located at the northern edge of Fort Massac. 

Lois Lane and Superman are waiting for your visit to Mutt-ropolis!

Two sections divide up the park based on weight of over/under 35 lbs. Water spigots are available on either side with special motion detectors for when a pup approaches to drink, and both entrances are equipped with degradable baggies for your pup's waste. To top it off, large shelters are on both sides to accommodate hoomans while the pups roam and play!
