I’ve grown up with German Shepards so I am extremely comfortable with big dogs. I also currently have my own mixed breed dog and love her so much. I’m currently in a gap year during grad school working on my research so I have a lot of down time and can’t think of a better way to spend my free time than with doggies! My dad is also a dog trainer so I grew up going to a lot of his jobs so have learned a lot in the process, which has helped me tremendously with my own dog. I look forward to walking, watching, and playing with your dog with lots of love and care!

Dog Walking in Covington

Covington, Louisiana is a small city with plenty of lush, green forests and only a short drive to the beach; a perfect location for every pet owner out there. While you may be content just to walk your dog through the sweet historic neighborhoods, there is a lovely dog park to try out in Covington.

Pelican Bark Park has both on- and off-leash areas for your pet to explore. They keep their property healthy by closing once a month to treat the grounds for fleas and other dangerous bugs that could harm pets that visit the park. There are gazebos, water fountains, and benches to keep pets and their humans safe in the hot southern summers. A great place to take Fido, whether she's big or small, to let off some steam!

There are a couple hotels to choose from if you are only visiting Covington. Staybridge Suites and the Residence Inn by Marriott are both lovely hotels that offer short and extended stays. They have ground floor level rooms for pet owners for easy access. When it’s time for dinner, try out the tasty Ristorante del Porto. They offer Italian cuisine and a spot for you and your pet outside on their terrace. Despite their small city size, Covington has plenty to offer for pet owners. You will be sure to find something fun to do in their lovely town with your best friend.

Grab your leashes dog-owners; it’s time to go for a great walk in Pretty Acres Dog Park in the Route 190/Harrison Avenue neighborhood. The location of the park is an advantage: it’s next to the main amenities in the city. If you’ve heard that this park is smaller than its brother in Mandeville, don’t be under the wrong impression that you can’t have just as much fun with your pup here. The area provides the same fun, off-leash experience for the pups, but it’s much quieter and relaxing than its Mandeville counterpart, making it just pawfect for owners! The park also has a special walking path – a nice and fun place for training your mischievous pup.
