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!

As a pet parent myself, I know how stressful leaving your pets can be and having someone you trust can make you feel at ease. I currently work part-time at a local Veterinary Hospital and have years of animal care experience in professional and personal environments. I started out working in a small pet shop in my late teens, and that is when I knew I wanted to work with animals. Since, I have worked in a public aquarium, pet supply retail, vet clinics and a no-kill animal shelter. These experiences have given me a wealth of knowledge to provide the very best care for all animals. I have fostered puppies, tiny kittens, senior dogs and cats. I have rescued and rehabbed many reptiles and birds. I am also in school to obtain my canine training certification. I would love the opportunity to help you and your pet feel comfy while you're away. I will try to work with any budget!

Dog Walking in Violet

Violet is a small community of about 10,000 just east of the Mississippi River. Only about five square miles, this area doesn’t have any dog-friendly amenities -- but never fear: thanks to this community’s close proximity to New Orleans, there are tons of Fido-friendly activities within reach (and over fifty vet clinics within twenty miles).

Just twenty miles west, in New Orleans, lies The Dog Levee. This open-air dog park is clean and great for uptown pups. There's a walking path and swimming hole, so be sure to bring a towel!

NOLA City Bark is also in New Orleans -- just thirty minutes northwest of Violet. This park, the pride and joy of the NOLA dog community, is five acres complete with shade pavilions and an event lawn. There’s a quarter-mile walking trail and a communal water fountain. Because it’s so well maintained, this is a permit-only park. However, visitors passes are available!

Also in New Orleans is Crescent Park. Thirteen miles northwest of Violet, this park is home to a fenced dog run in its Downriver “Kickabout” section. Dogs are encouraged to play off-leash as long as they’re well-behaved and vaccinated.

Be sure to take advantage of the many dog-friendly amenities -- mainly top-tier dog parks -- that Violet’s surrounding community has to offer!

Just because Violet doesn’t have any dog-friendly activities doesn’t mean you should despair. The world famous city of New Orleans is a mere 14-mile drive from Violet. The historic French Quarter neighborhood has plenty of dog-friendly parks and locations, including ghost city tours, lots of Fido-friendly dining and shopping, and even a historic preserve that allows leashed pups inside! Start your outing in NOLA off right with a Fido-friendly breakfast at one of the many dog-friendly eateries in the French Quarter. Then, do some shopping before ending your day at one of the many off-leash parks in other areas of the city!

Violet residents are lucky because they are only 19 miles away from a wonderfurr dog park in the Bonnabel Place neighborhood of Metairie. You mutts take your pooch to is the Bonnabel Boat Launch Dog Park. This small dog park is fenced in and doesn’t require dogs to be on their leash. There’s even agility equipment for your pal to play on! Water and doggie waste bags are also provided, but it’s always a good idea to bring some of your own just in case. Locals boast that this is one of the best off-leash parks in the city, so Fido is sure to make some new fur-iends.

Although Mandeville is nearly 60 miles from Violet, many Violet residents would argue the drive is well worth it. After all, Mandeville is home to a pretty pawesome state park, Fontainebleau State Park. This massive state park offers hiking, camping, and fishing, but most importantly, it’s also home to an off-leash dog park! The dog park is closed on the first Wednesday of each month for maintenance. Note that there is an admission fee to enter the state park, but all proceeds go toward the park’s upkeep. Dogs must be leashed outside of the dog park.

Although Covington is approximately 65 miles from Violet, the scenic drive and pawtastic dog park make it worth it! Covington is home to one dog park, the Pretty Acres Dog Park. Just like the name sounds, the park is a gorgeous stretch of lush, well-maintained grass. It is a pretty relaxed park where many people take their pups for obedience training. It is a great place to take your pup if you want to relax with a good book and spend the day in the sun. Plus, the park is off-leash so your dog is free to explore -- something all pooches need every once in awhile!
