“I want to care for your best friend!”

I have had some type of animal ever since I can remember. I got my first, very own dog in 2005. I have had 2 labs, 2 pugs, and three cats. I absolutely adore both dogs and cats. I promise your pet will have an amazing time with me, my family, and my pets! My pug Jake absolutely loves meeting new friends. My cat Miko likes to be walked on a harness and leash to the dog park! I will be completely open and available to your pets while they are in my care. I am completely flexible with my schedule.

I've loved animals of all sorts since I was a child, and have worked with quite a variety of them both personally and professionally. I love dogs, and have familiarity with working with them both large and small (including a brief stint working with animal control).

Dog Walking in Abita Springs

Eccentric yet rooted in tradition, laid-back yet proud -- it’s no wonder that Abita Springs, LA was voted one of America’s fifty best small towns to visit! The small town is perhaps best known for its spring water, as well as the brewery that based its brand on it. There’s far more to Abita Springs than brooks and beer, though -- the town is well known for its art galleries, murals and overall cultural scene. Abita Springs hosts regular art and farmer’s markets, and the area is also home to the Abita Springs Opry, a festival dedicated to preserving traditional Louisiana Roots music, and the wonderfully weird UCM ("you-see-’em") Museum. Your buddy might want to pop in and meet Darrell, the half-alligator, half-dog "dogigator", while you can say hello to Edmond, the half-human, half-alligator "allisapiens".

There’s no designated dog park in Abita Springs, but you and your pooch are still sure to sniff out something to do! The town is famous for its bicycle trails, most of which also welcome walkers. If you and your four-pawed friend pal prefer a walk in the wilderness, you’re in luck -- Abita Springs is close by some furrifically fur-friendly hiking options. And if your doggo longs to lose the leash, don’t worry -- you’ll find some pawesome dog parks a short drive away!

Quaint yet quirky, downtown Abita Springs is full of op-paw-tunities for adventure! You and your pooch can take a lovely leashed stroll around Abita Park, which features some lovely riverside views. Or check out the Trailhead Park and Museum -- you and your pooch won’t be allowed inside the museum, of course, but you can still admire the beautifully constructed pavillions. Then there’s the trail itself -- the Tammany Trace, a thirty-mile or so stretch that’s well-shaded by stately, mature trees. And of course, no trip to Abita Springs would be complete without a bottle at the Abita Brewery, where wagging tails are welcome on the outdoor patio.

Downtown Covington is a real mutts-visit! Just four miles from Abita Springs, the town has a plethora of doggy dining options. For a quick bite, check Rob’s Rocking Dogs -- their Tex-Mex all-beef franks are the stuff of local legend, and they cater to canines outside. If your arteries are constricting at the very thought, try Toad Hollow Cafe, a locally owned vegan joint that allows dogs on their outdoor patio. Fancy a more upscale experience? You and your pal can dine on the terrace at Oxlot 9. Afterward, you two can burn it all off with a leashed, riverside walk in the scenic Bouge Falaya Wayside Park.

Tucked away in the quiet, suburban Covington neighborhood of Flowers Estates, Pretty Acres Dog Park is a pawfect place to let your furry friend run free! Pretty Acres is a little bit of a misnomer -- the park only has one acre of fenced space. There’s still plenty of room for your fur-ball to run around and burn off some excess energy, though, and water-loving pups will have a whale of a time splashing about in the doggy pools! Bags and water are provided, and the dog run has a quarter-mile paved walking trail around its perimeter for a warm-up or cool-down walk.

Twenty minutes from Abita Springs, the city of Mandeville sits pretty on Lake Pontchartrain's north shore. It’s also home to Pelican Bark Park, a real mutts-visit for you and your canine companion! The dog run is huge -- there’s plenty of space here for even the most rambunctious pup to tire themselves out in. Like the park in Covington, there are a few doggy pools for your pooch to cool off in, but unlike the Covington park, there’s a separate area for small dogs, so your doggo can play and socialise no matter their size! Bags and water are provided, so just bring your pup and prepare to play!

Nestled between the shores of the lake and the historic district, Waterfront Park is the jewel in Mandeville’s crown. The lakeside park is a delightful place for you and your doggo to stretch all six of your legs -- there’s a mile-long, paved walking trail right by the water. It’s pretty pawpular with local pooches and their people, too, so you two might make some friends along the way! Afterward, you two can chow down at Beach House, a highly-rated burger place that boasts a very dog-friendly outdoor patio. They’ll even put out bowls of water on a hot day!
