“Pets > People”

Hi! My name is Cara and I'm a theatre artist here in Louisville. I'm originally from Indianapolis and have always lived with dogs. Growing up my family had three dogs, a jack russell, a golden lab and a pointer mutt. In college I pet sat for my professors and after graduation I have been the go-to pet sitter for my coworkers. I love animals of all shapes and sizes. I'm just as happy walking a 80 pound pittie mix as my best friend's 15 pound terrier. I can't wait to meet your pup!

Dog Walking in Louisville

The Louisville metropolitan area has 122 city parks, many of which welcome leashed dogs on their trails and paths. Louisville is also home to the largest municipal urban forest in the country, the Jefferson Memorial Forest. With more than 35 miles of trails winding through beautiful woodland scenery, this area is perfect for a daytime hike, or hike, with your best four-legged friend.

For a more relaxed setting where your whole family can spend a day out in the sun, visit the Waterfront Park. This Park covers 85 acres and was completed in three phases, with open spaces for events, smaller spaces for picnics and parties, and walkways connecting them all together. Take your pup along the river or after wearing your pup down, sit back together with a good book.

The Louisville Dog Run Association operates dog parks in the city, overseeing eight official off-leash runs. The Sawyer Dog Park is located within the E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park and has six acres where your dog can run freely with friends. Though there is an annual membership fee for access to the park, the money goes back towards the dog parks, ensuring that you and your pup always have a well-maintained place to visit.

As long as your pup is well-behaved and on a leash, they'll be happy to have you look around the store.

South of the city lies Parkwood, a more rural area home to Iroquois Park! If you're looking for green grass, beautiful scenery, and lots of trees, this place is for you. The pathways through the park are paved for easy travel. As you walk the grounds, you may even hear or see performances happening at the amphitheatre from afar, although no dogs are permitted inside. That being said, it does add some fun to a regular walk with your best buddy if some kickin’ music is playing.
