Hi I'm Will! I walk dogs full-time and it's great! I've walked and sat dogs of all breeds and types from 18 years to 2 months, from South African mastiffs to Yorkies and everything in between. Active and energetic dogs are my favorite to walk, and I've met so many repeat clients here in New Orleans. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to me, I look forward to providing puptastic service!

Dog Walking in Harvey

Harvey is a large community of about 23,000 residents located on the west bank of the Mississippi River. Just south of New Orleans, this district has over fifty veterinarians within a five-mile radius and countless activities for pups and their parents to enjoy -- including rafting, kayaking, and exploring the nearby French Quarter.

Some of the most popular destinations near Harvey are the dog parks. Wisner Dog Park, snuggled in between baseball fields and basketball courts, is home to a small, fenced dog run. Crescent Park, a robust twenty acres, is also home to a fenced dog run and offers unparalleled views of the Mississippi. Coliseum Square, home to a dog park in nearby NOLA, boasts a beautiful center fountain, a dog-friendly water bubbler, and complimentary doggie bags.

Harvey is home to nearly a dozen dog-friendly restaurants, including options for Chinese, American, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and Vietnamese cuisine. For a more unconventional meal, swing by Parrot Pete’s on Manhattan Blvd. They serve breakfast favorites all day, and their outdoor patio is pup-friendly.

Harvey’s close proximity to The Big Easy makes it the perfect place for pups and their parents. With a variety of pup-friendly restaurants and parks nearby, this bustling community is far enough from the city to avoid the crowds but close enough to enjoy the amenities. Puptastic!
