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!

Hi, my name is Rachel! I love animals and the outdoors. I've worked with many different breeds and sizes of dogs in a veterinary and kennel setting, so I'm comfortable handling most any dog. I've also raised and trained Destro, a Jack Russell Terrier, so I know how important it is to you that your buddy is getting the quality of care he or she deserves. I want to treat your dog as though they're just as special as my own.

As a young college student I started pet sitting for my neighbors. I was pet sitting for 10 years already when a dear friend started a pet sitting service on the north shore; he asked me if I’d be interested in working for his sitting service, and I was thrilled. I began working as a professional pet sitter in 2002 and I can’t remember a more rewarding job. It's an honor to have been gifted with a career in pet sitting. I absolutely love caring for pets; they always have a special way of making each day more memorable.

“I’ve walked and caredfor over 500 dogs as a walker”

Ive spent most of my life caring for dogs. My first dog was a boxer that I had for 15 years. I used to also breed Neapolitan Mastiffs with my brother who is a dog trainer and competes in dog shows. They are huge dogs and a lot of responsibility which taught me patience and love for dogs. I’ve spent the last 2 years in New York walking and caring for over 500 different dogs. I’ve trained puppies and older dogs. I look forward to walking your dog and can assure you he is in good hands. Thank you!

Hi! I'm Jake, avid dog lover and owner since childhood. Grew up in a house that had a Rottweiler mix, followed by labs that we loved so much that we bred them. The first pup was my first dog that I owned. I now own a 4 year old Husky mix that I rescued and take care of my parents' Rottweiler and their Chihuahua mix when they're away. Love all dogs.

All my life I have had at least one, if not more, family dogs in my home. I started doing dog-walking and pet-sitting in 2014 when I moved to Dallas and instantly fell in love. Meeting and having relationships with sweet furry friends while their humans are away has been nothing but rewarding.

Dog Walking in Metairie

Planning to see a game at the Louisiana Superdome or spend a weekend relaxing at Lake Pontchartrain? Treat yourself to a luxurious stay at the La Quinta Inn New Orleans Causeway on Service Road in Metairie. Rooms start as low as $75, and two pets under 50 pounds are welcome in any room for no additional fee. The La Quinta Inn offers amenities such as high-speed Internet, free breakfast, fitness room, meeting rooms, and a swimming pool. Going somewhere your pet isn’t allowed? Simply give your phone number to the front desk and inform them that your pet will be alone for a time period, and they will call you if any problems arise.

Let your dog run off-leash at the Bonnabel Boat Launch Dog Park. This completely fenced-in park is located on Bonnabel Boulevard and is equipped with dog agility equipment. You can get your dog ready for competition using this dog park’s agility gear, or simply use the obstacles for a fun owner-and-dog workout. Be a courteous citizen by treating the equipment respectfully and clean up after your pet.

Spend a day shopping with your pet at the pet-friendly Lake Side Shopping Center. With stores such as the Apple Store, Bath & Body Works, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Game Stop, and Macy’s, there’s sure to be a store that will fit your and your pet’s fancy. Of course, individual stores have the right to deny entrance to your pet, so be sure to clarify that pets are allowed in your favorite outlet.

Located on the banks of Lake Pontchartrain, Bonnabel Boat Launch Dog Park will satisfy your pup’s desire to be free outside. Cool breeze from the lake refreshes you as you watch your pup roam around the off-leash park. Play equipment keeps your doggo entertained, and a water fountain keeps them from overheating after a long afternoon of running. There are benches and portable restrooms for dog owners. It should be noted that there is not separate areas for small and larger dogs; the fenced-in space is just one big grassy area. The park is open daily from dawn to dusk.

Featuring a spacious 5 acres, your dog will quickly fall in love with Lafreniere Dog Park, an off-leash dog park. A smaller fenced in area allows small dogs less than 22 lbs. to roam freely, while another space is dedicated to larger dogs.

Water, benches and shade are there to help you and your pooch out when things get sweaty. Park hours are Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The park also includes a disc golf course, ball fields and a patio garden.

Take your pup and explore the miles of pathways through Metairie Cemetery, one of New Orleans’s largest and historic graveyards. Over 9,000 tombs fill the resting grounds, some dating back to the 1800s. This low-key stroll allows you to honor those who came before and you what’s important in life, which is the fact one year for dogs roughly equates to 15 human years. Don’t ever take your pup for granted! The cemetery is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Dogs must remain on a leash. After your walk, you can walk the half-mile to The Bulldog, a dog-loving pub with plenty of canine-friendly tables.
