I have been married to Travis for 19 years. I have a teenage daughter who loves to play volleyball. I have two dogs, Sadie, a Weimaraner, who is 10 years old, and Bud, a German Shorthaired Pointer, who is 6 years. My dogs and I go on at least 2 walks a day. The neighbors know me as the dog lady. In the summer I enjoy camping, boating, hiking, and biking. In the winter I enjoy snowmobiling and snowshoeing. The dogs are usually along for the ride when possible.

“Need a break? I’ll walk your dog!”

Hi all! I have been a dog owner for the last 15 years and I have loved all the dogs that I have come across. I have always had either a poodle or a goldendoodle in my household. I have always been overly excited when I see dogs because they just brighten up my day. Walking dogs is something that I have been doing for years, so I feel that I have the hang of things, from small dogs to the really big dogs. I have no problem walking then in all sorts of weather conditions and places.Dogs are great!

This 28-acre park also contains natural and wooded areas for your adventurous pup to explore.

Fair Hills Park, though smaller than Daisy Knoll Park, is another good spot where you can hang out with your pooch. This 2.4-acre park draws in neighborhood kids with its fun playground equipment, but it also has a large, snifftastic grassy area for four-legged visitors to enjoy.
