I worked for a dog sitting service in Alabaster Alabama, before moving to Kentucky a couple of years ago. I have a 4 year old border collie/boxer mix that is a rescue. She has severe anxiety issues due to a former life of abuse. We walk anywhere from 3 to 6 miles daily, in addition to working on her issues. Spending time with animals brings me a lot of joy.

Hello there, my name is Alexa! For the entirety of my life there has been a dog by my side. I've grown up around dogs of all ages, breeds, and backgrounds, which taught me patience, respect, and love for all animals. After walking dogs for Granada Animal Outreach during my stay in Granada, Nicaragua, I realized the true strength and love these animals have within their hearts. Such an experience will forever stick with me. As an avid hiker I love the feeling of the fresh air and exercise, as I'll hope your dog does as well! A healthy dog is a content dog after all. I will make it my top priority to treat your dog with patience, kindness, and the care deserved to ensure your Wag! experience is everything you imagined it to be!

Dear Pet Parents, I apologize for the lack of information about me on my profile. I have attempted to update this area for a few months and haven't been successful, due to glitches in the app. I have spoken with, and chatted with Wag Support a few times since at least March, but there has been no help through the glitches. As soon as they take care of the problems on their end, I will be sure to add some info about me here. Thank you!

Dog Walking in Richmond

The city of Richmond, Kentucky is full of dog-friendly attractions, so you can rest assured that your four-legged friend will never have a dull moment!

A must-visit is the Judy Rains Memorial Dog Park. It is located on Reba Lake (there is a walking trail from the park to the lake). Locals love the details, like double-gated locking doors and dog toys, as well as the beauty of the area – the park is full of grass, tall trees, and of course, the scenic lake. In addition, the Reba Lake Recreational Complex has many other activities, including an all-abilities playground and a fishing lake.

Nearby is the Fort Boonesborough State Park, which was founded by Daniel Boone during the settler period in 1775. It covers over 350 acres! Leashed dogs are welcome to explore the park and campground, but they’re not allowed in the actual fort area.

Richmond has several other parks that welcome on-leash dogs. Camp Catalpa is a former bird sanctuary that now functions as a public park, complete with shelters and a nature trail (as well as a public golf course). There’s also the Irvine McDowell Park, which covers 20 acres and includes amenities like a playground, museum, and softball fields.

Located only 27 miles from the heart of Richmond is the bustling city of Lexington. Unlike Richmond, Lexington is rich in dog parks. It has not one, two or three, but four dog parks that you can take your dog to! The parks -- the Masterson Station Dog Park, Coldstream Dog Park, Wellington Dog Park and Jacobson Dog Park -- are so close together you could even visit them all in one day. Interestingly, each and every park is completely off-leash! Leave the leash at home and let your dog make some new friends! You both will have a pawsome time in Lexington.

If you love your dog and would do anything for them -- which we are betting you do and you would -- you need to visit the city of Versailles, 43.6 miles away from Richmond. Versailles only has one dog park, but it is definitely worth the trip! The Woodford County Dog Park is a large stretch of land where your dog can play, run and make new friends without a leash! The park also has plenty of amenities such as water bowls and doggie poop bags. However, you should take your own toys as the park is rarely full of dogs.
