“Time with a dog is never wasted time”

Hey there, fellow pet parent! I’m thrilled to be a temporary care-taker for your fur baby. As a pet parent, I understand how much care, love, and patience is needed to ensure the highest quality is given and well received by the pet. As a lover of all animals, dogs have always held a special place in my heart. I currently have a 6 year-old mix named Louie and he is my world. Louie has some special needs when it comes to feeding and medication, but he doesn’t let that slow him down!

Hello, my name is Cassandra! I am a proud animal mommy of a border collie, English Bulldog, cat and Box turtle. They are my world and get the best! I grew up around Rottweilers so learning how to train and read signs from a dog was a must in my family. I also understand the different breeds and their specific needs, whether it is a rambunctious dog like my border collie or a much more mellow dog like my bulldog. When I was about 12 I started my own neighborhood training and dog walking business. I meet all kinds of breeds, from tiny daschungs to Great Danes! They all came with their own personalities and ways of learning. I enjoyed every minute of it! I look forward to meeting all of you sweet fur babies!

Hello! I’m Alex Ralston, and I am a K-State student working on completing my bachelor’s degree in wildlife and conservation biology. I have lived around animals my entire life, with the amount of pets in my family actually outnumbering siblings. While I’m passionate about all animals, I consistently find that dogs are among the most personable and amazing ones around! I have been walking dogs for years, and have even worked with the owner and operator of Scholarly Strays, whose mission focuses on building healthy relationships between dogs and humans. As such, I have great training and experience in providing dogs and owners with proper dog-walking services. I look forward to connecting with both you and your canine friend in the near future!

The rich history and scenic views accessible in this college town make it a fantastic place to live, especially if you want numerous options for dog-friendly attractions.

If you’re looking for a dog park in the area, don’t miss Fairmont Dog Park. Open from 6 am to 11 pm seven days a week, this off-leash dog park offers a large space for Fido to enjoy. Or, try the Cico Dog Park, which offers a fenced-in area for off-leash play and a water fountain.

There’s also the City Park, a 45-acre space that was established in 1857. Hosting several arts and culture events throughout the year, this park also features a rose garden, playground, picnic tables, and a one-mile walking trail for your on-leash pooch to explore.

The Manhattan area is also home to several walking and hiking trails. For an easy walk, try the Blue River Outlet Trail, a 1.5-mile loop that offers access to the Blue River. For something more challenging, especially if you're looking for a exhausting workout for Fido, try one of the 5-mile trails at Carnahan State Park. No matter your interest or skill level, there’s bound to be something for you and your furry companion to enjoy in Manhattan, Kansas.

Your canine companion is welcome to explore all the boundaries of this fenced-in, off-leash park. The terrain is nice and grassy, but when it rains, it gets a little muddy, so you’ll need to bring some supplies to clean them up. This park also offers a few picnic tables and some trees for shade on hot days. During the warmer months, the park provides water fountains for both dogs and people! In the winter, though, you’ll need to bring your own water.
