Hi, My name is Erin! I am a runner, hiker, yogi and outdoor lover. I am in the process of getting certified as a yoga instructor. Last April I attempted to THRU hike the Appalachian trail from Georgia to Maine. I made it over halfway before I got injured in Pennsylvania. I was working for Wag before my hike and enjoyed it so much and walked a ton of dogs and it really helped prepare me. It is so uplifting and rewarding spending time outside with your pups!

Hello. I have been a pet owner for almost all my life. I have had my own little petsitting/dog business for the past several years. This felt like a good way to add to that. This also allows me to use my knowledge and experience to help others here on the Wag app, to love and walk their pets. I truly am an animal lover at heart and will treat your animal(s) with as much love and respect as my own. They really are such a great enjoyment to my life.

Dog Walking in Covington

Located at the confluence of the Ohio and Licking Rivers, Covington is a dog-friendly city that will keep your best friend's tail wagging all throughout. The city's many recreational amenities encourage its residents and visitors to spend time outside, with most places allowing canine companions to tag along. Covington also has one veterinary clinic looking after the health of its animals.

Surrounded by lush trees and historic buildings, the George Steinford Park is a furrific spot to take Fido for a leashed walk any time of the day. Also known as the Sixth Street Promenade, this park houses the iconic Goose Girl Fountain and serves as the heart of outdoor activity in downtown Covington.

Basil Lewis Park offers a quiet area to enjoy a picnic with your pooch. Despite its relatively small size, it has picnic tables, a large grill, horseshoe pits, benches, and a pet waste station. Basil Lewis Park is located next to train tracks, so you and Fido might see a train pass by while you're there.

If you need to spend the night in town with your pup, Extended Stay America and Hotel Covington both accept pets of any size for an extra fee. Call first to reserve a pooch-friendly room and ensure a smooth check-in process.

There's more than enough room for Fido to run around off-leash at the Kenton Paw Park! Located within the 43-acre Pioneer Park, this spacious dog park has separate enclosures for small and large pooches and benches for their human companions to sit on. Drinking water and doggie waste bags are also provided. If Fido doesn't feel like playing with the other dogs, you can go for a walk around Pioneer Park instead—there are 1.7 miles of paved trails that span the area. Locals say the park gets muddy if it has rained, so avoid visiting after a shower if you don't want your pup to get dirty.

Take your best friend for a leashed stroll around Goebel Park, located right in downtown Covington. This park is home to the German-style Carroll Chimes Clock Tower, which comes to life every hour from April through December as it displays a mechanical puppet show based on the Pied Piper of Hamelin. Some pup-friendly restaurants with outdoor seating are just a stone's throw away from the park, making it easy to get some grub while you're in the area. Your options include Dee Felice Cafe, Goodfellas Pizzeria, Piper's Cafe, and Bouquet Restaurant and Wine Bar. Also located within the neighborhood is the smaller Kenney Shields Park, which is connected to Goebel by a walking trail.
