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 9 years old, and Bud, a German Shorthaired Pointer, who is 5 )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.

Hi! My name is Kate. With the COVID-19 shutdowns this is my only way of income and I appreciate any and all walks.

“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!

It’s also home to a staggering 62 parks, and 100 miles of trails. There are also four highly rated veterinary clinics in Lakeville, making dog ownership a breeze.

Of the many parks in Lakeville, several of these are nature conservation areas that you and pup can enjoy, namely, the Foxbury Conservation Area, Woodbury Conservation Area and Steve Michaud Park Conservation Area. When you need some fresh air and your doggo needs to stretch his legs, take a stroll through one of the many trails in these natural green spaces. These areas welcome leashed dogs that are well-behaved and picked up after.
