I'm a dad to two spoiled dogs one of which was a foster who conned me into adopting him. I'm the designated dog bosrder for my friends when they go on vacation so it's not uncommon for me to have four dogs staying at my house sometimes. I grew up with dogs and couldn't wait to get older when I could get my own. I've always loved dogs and with Wag I can hang out with dogs and get paid, you can't beat that!

My name is Hannah and I grew up in a big family with two little cockapoos! I started pet sitting and dog walking at a young age in my small hometown, caring for dogs of all sizes, ages, and breeds from various home environments. When I went to college, I continued to pet sit and babysit for families with dogs but I also began volunteering at the local animal shelter. It makes me so happy to see dogs in loving homes and I love to be part of keeping them safe, healthy, and happy!

I grew up in the country, with several Great Danes and Boxers as part of my family. Since moving to New Orleans, I've adopted several mixed breed rescue dogs. Walking is always the highlight of a dog's day, so I understand the importance of dog walking. And I know owners certainly want a walker who is reliable, sensible, and who will ensure the dog truly enjoys his or her walk.

Dog Walking in Lafitte

You'll find the small town of Lafitte at the southern end of Louisiana Highway 45, set right between The Pen and Bayou Rigolettes. This charming town was historically a fishing village, and seafood is still an important part of the local economy and culture. 

Unfortunately, there aren’t any Fido-friendly places in the immediate area, and the closest veterinary practice is around 17 miles away, but you won’t have to go too far to find somewhere you can bring your canine companion! Around 19 miles to the north in Marrero is Restaurant des Familles. They serve up the best in Cajun traditional food, and the whole family can enjoy a meal in the beautiful bayou surrounded by moss-laden oaks, seven days a week. Your four-legged pal is welcome to join you and any non-furry family members at one of their four outdoor tables.

Around 22 miles north is Westbank Grill in Westwego, LA. This pawesome restaurant does a wide variety of southern inspired dishes such as seafood baskets, po-boys, and even an excellent gumbo. Outside you will find a dozen Fido-friendly tables to chow down at.
