Hi I’m Bosi! I love animals and dogs happen to be my favorite! Walking is great exercise for both me and your dog so it’s a win win situation! As well as walking, I have pet sat for numerous types of animals and although cats are easy, dogs are more fun. I am a collegiate runner so this is the best cross training in my opinion! I hope to take your dog on his or hers most exciting walk!

Hi, I'm Tya. I have always been an animal lover and, although I currently do not have any pets, I've been fortunate enough to love and have big and small dogs as part of my family. I have experience with pit bull terriers, Beagles, Doodles, Corgis, Collies, Retrievers, and mixed breeds and I used to work in a kennel and I dog sit regularly, so I've made friends with many others. I also love taking walks - fresh air and exercise! My favorite memories, usually have a dog in them, with us walking.

Dog Walking in Danville

The Hendricks County seat, Danville was incorporated way back in 1835. Danville’s history has been lovingly preserved; Courthouse Square and the central shopping districts are both listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as are a number of the grand homes on Washington Street and Broadway. Explore this lovely town by foot and paw while your buddy sniffs out some new friends.

In spite of its small size, Danville is only 20 miles from the heart of Indianapolis. With affordable housing and an easy commute, the town is growing thanks to an influx of commuters. Suburban Danville gives your pups lots of creature comforts. There are four veterinary clinics in town and multiple 24-hour animal hospitals available in Indy. You'll even find drive-through pet supplies in nearby Brownsburg: Crossroads Drive-Through Feed Barn will load your trunk with premium pet food while you chill in the front seat with your buddy.

The 53-acre Blanton Woods is Danville’s best puppy perk. Willed to the town on the condition that it never be developed, this lovely nature preserve has five miles of wooded trails that wind past creeks and streams. The park has no facilities beyond picnic tables, so plan ahead for your restroom break and bring water, waste bags, and anything else you’ll need. This park is so peaceful that you’ll forget you're only a few blocks north of Main Street.

Founded in 1913 to protect the city’s communal wells, Ellis Park on Main Street is a century-old Dansville tradition. A loop road circles the athletic facilities, and spur trails cross over the famous swinging bridge and follow the banks of White Lick Creek in this 49-acre park. From Ellis, take the footpath from the southwestern corner of the park to reach Danville Police Department headquarters, and then pick up the sidewalk beginning at the historical marker in front. Follow the sidewalk west on Main Street into the heart of Downtown Danville, where you’ll admire the classic brick storefronts and historical architecture. The Bread Basket Café & Bakery on Washington Street has converted an old home into a dog-friendly restaurant, so stop and enjoy breakfast or lunch at one of seven outdoor tables on the wide covered porch.

Two furrific parks lie within a half-mile of each other on Highway 36 on the western edge of Avon, but we wouldn't recommend walking between them across the busy divided highway. The Washington Township Park is larger and slightly closer, about 5 miles from Danville, and it features an off-leash dog park. Your buddy will need to provide his vaccination records to sign up for a Paw Park Pass, but with three fenced areas and a convenient location, it's worth it. The park also features 5 miles of trails through natural scenery and along the creek to a historic 1876 bridge. There are two more miles of paved trails around the 9-acre lake at the Avon Town Hall Park. Be sure to clean up; convenient poo-disposal stations located along the trail.

If your doggo is tired of the same old crowd, try a new park. The off-leash Bark Park at Swinford Park in Plainfield is 11 miles from Danville, farther than the Paw Park in Avon but full of fresh smells and friendly pups for a doggy day out. Stop by the park office to sign up for an annual membership and get a self-service key card. Swinford Park also features a running trail for some intense on-leash exercise, and the playgrounds and athletic facilities mean there's always someone having fun nearby. If your pup is an introvert, check out bigger, wilder Hummel Park just up the road. Hummel is a 205-acre nature preserve with hiking and biking trails through the woods and an 18-hole disc golf course to challenge your Frisbee game.

About 22 miles from Danville, Eagle Creek Park in Indy's Eagle Creek neighborhood is the 6th largest city park in the nation, sprawling over 3,900 acres. That includes an oversized Bark Park, where the fenced enclosures for off-leash play include some pawesome agility equipment. Back on-leash, check out the 16 miles of hiking trails through wildflower meadows and forest and around Lilly Lake. The Fitness Trail also features 32 (human) exercise stations so you can keep your heart rate up even when walking short-legged friends. Grab a trail map from the park's website, as it shows not just the routes and lengths but also restrooms and water stations along the way. If your dogs like to paddle, rent a canoe and show them how it's done. Note that the park has a small daily fee and additional Bark Park entrance fee. Reduced-price annual memberships are available, and an annual Pooch Pass to the Bark Park is valid at all four of Indy's off-leash dog parks.

With trailheads in Plainfield and Amo — just 10 miles southeast and southwest of Danville respectively — the Vandalia Trail runs for 16 miles through Hendricks and Putnam Counties. The Amo trailhead is located in the middle of downtown, with parking on West Street near Vine Street. Vandalia is currently the longest stretch of the planned National Road Heritage Trail, which will eventually span border-to-border for 150 miles of uninterrupted hiking. This converted railway is now a peaceful path through the woods and meadows with infrequent road crossings. A separate equestrian trail occasionally merges with the main trail (so be ready for horse droppings if your pup is a member of the rolling-in-smelly-things fan club). The three-mile stretch from Amo to Coatesville uses an elevated boardwalk that rises up to a dramatic trestle crossing 30 feet above Crittenden Creek. The only restroom and water available are at the public library in Coatesville, so plan accordingly.
