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!

Dog Walking in Westwego

Westwego is located in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana and is considered to be a suburb of New Orleans. It lies west of the Mississippi River. There is a story that the city was named Westwego because it was an important crossing point on the river in the 19th century when the great westward movement happened. According to legend, travelers would often say "west we go," and the (rather unorthodox!) name stuck.

If you are in need of a place to stay along with your pup in this interesting town, you can check out the Bayou Segnette State Park Campground, Candlewood Suites Avondale New Orleans, or the Westwego Airbnb Rentals. If you want to grab a bite to eat, the Westbank Grill and Sonic Drive-In are happy to welcome you and your pooch.

If you are in need of a veterinarian, you can rest easy knowing Westwego is home to an animal hospital and a veterinary clinic as well. 

If you are looking for something to do while you are in this town along with your four-legged fur baby, then you should really check out the Bayou Segnette State Park. The park is dog-friendly and offers lots of activities for everybody. You can go swimming, camping, hiking, fishing, and so much more in this natural oasis!
