“Why be sad when you can play with dogs!”

My name is Sarah and I'm a huge dog lover! I've owned many dogs in my life and I've been a fun loving and responsible caregiver to them all! I have personally owned a golden retriever and a golden doodle, but I've taken care of Great Danes, Bulldogs, Labs, and more! My favourite pastime is to spend time with dogs.

I have grown up with dogs since I was three years old. Personally I have always owned medium sized dogs (golden retriever, mutt, & german Shepard), but I have experience with a wide range of sizes. My friends have small Chihuahuas as well as much larger dogs that I have had the opportunity to care for. In addition to dog walking, I have also dog sat from periods of 3 days to 3 weeks.

“Let’s walk!”

Hi, I’m Breckyn! I am a current student at Purdue University studying Hospitality and Tourism Management (although I started out as a pre-vet major before quickly realizing I loved animals too much to ever put a pup down or go through surgery). I love all kinds of animals but dogs have always been my favorite. I’m also active and participate in club sports so I am well suited for all dogs from a couch potato to a strong, fast walking pup. If you have any questions feel free to reach out! :)

Dog Walking in West Lafayette

West Lafayette mirrors its sister city, Lafayette, with its many  outdoor activities and amenities for our four-legged friend. There is no shortage of veterinarian care with the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine in town. You'll find three other veterinary hospitals and clinics within the city's city limits. These offer routine care and emergency treatment for both resident and visiting dogs.

The city is replete with open spaces and places for dogs and their people to take a walk or explore some scenery. The city itself maintains thirteen parks spread out among the various neighborhoods. Prophetstown State Park is accessed at 5545 Swisher Road. This state park is over 900 acres of land, and much of it is restored prairie and marshland. The forested areas include douglas fir and sycamore, among others. 

The state park also offers options for a hiker with a leashed dog. There are three easy hikes with one of them being paved. Two more are for the more ambitious or experienced hiker and wind through forested areas and wetlands near the Tippecanoe River. The state park also has a campsite with full hook-ups and electric available. Dogs are free to camp with their people as long as they are under control at all times on no less than an eight foot leash, and they are cleaned up after.

West Lafayette has a few places for a person and dog to visit. The Econo Lodge welcomes a traveler with up to two dogs under 50 pounds for an additional fee of $15 per dog per night. Four Points by Sheraton is another option for the person traveling with a four-legged companion. This hotel allows one dog of up to forty pounds for no additional fee. The Sheraton has a limited number of dog-friendly rooms, so it is best to call in advance of any visit. Hungry? Head to Another Broken Egg Cafe, a dog-friendly restaurant located on Northwestern Avenue. This restaurant serves breakfast and lunch, and has outdoor seating to accommodate a person with a pup.

The Southwest  neighborhood of Lafayette is a place dogs want to visit! Shamrock Dog Park, located at 115 Sanford Street, has four separate fenced enclosures for dogs to run leash-free and play. A separate area is always set aside for the small dogs. The dog park is grass-covered. Water is on-site, and a rinse station makes for a clean ride home. Doggie waste bags are conveniently provided. Some benches and a few shade trees make things more comfortable for the human companions. One drawback of the dog park is that its proximity to the river results in flooding from time to time. Use of the dog park is by permit only. Weekly or annual passes are sold.

The City Limits of Danville is about an hour’s drive west of West Lafayette, but the 58-mile trip to a place that welcomes dogs and their people with things to see and do is well worth it.

A separate one-acre site is set aside for small dogs. The third enclosure is accessible to people with limited mobility. The dog park has water available on-site.
