“Care that makes a best friend”

Animals are my life. I have always had pets growing up as a child and my love for them has grown into my adulthood even more. I have a passion for learning and understanding all different types of animals. My experience in pet care is from having my own pets and caring for family, friends and volunteering over the years. I have recently started my own dog on behavioral training for a better understanding of his mind and learned so much that I feel I can also provide your dog!

Dog Walking in Hobart

Hobart, Indiana is home to around 28,000 people, and while most of the properties in town are residential, it has recently undergone a commercial expansion. Hobart has 14 city parks, a few golf courses, and plenty of other recreational activities. It's a great place to live, and if you're a dog owner, Hobart will prove to be an excellent place for both you and your dog to make memories. There isn't a designated off-leash dog park in Hobart, but the city parks and walking trails welcome dogs if they're on a leash.

The Prairie-Duneland Trail runs through Hobart, and it's one of the most pawpular places to walk your dog in town. This asphalt trail stretches for more than 10 miles, and along the way, you'll see not only prairies and dunes, but ponds, woods, and neighborhoods, too. This trail is part of a network of trails that span across America. The trails were created from former railway lines that were no longer being used, and instead were transformed into trails the public could enjoy. Prairie Duneland Trail is also a good spot for running, hiking, and biking. When you want to visit an off-leash dog park instead, there are several options for that nearby, too!
