“A walk is always better with a fur baby or 2 or 3.”

I have always had a dog in my life. I love taking the 2 I have for walks but I also like to get extra walking time in for my own exercise and it is always more fun to have a fur baby with you on the adventure.

“Let your pup have a fun and safe time!”

I have been taking care of dogs by house sitting/dog sitting for over a year now and I have taken care of my own dogs my entire life. I love playing/cuddling with my dog. My dog has anxiety so I am used to keeping him calm when he is scared. I enjoy meeting new dogs and giving them the love and care that they need when their owners are busy. Being able to provide your dog with a professional, trustworthy, fun, and loveable dog walker is something that I look forward to doing!

Dog Walking in Festus

South of metropolitan St. Louis is the vibrant town of Festus. This dog-friendly community serves its dogs' health needs with five veterinary clinics. Festus is a great place for travelers on Highway 55 to stop and stretch their legs. People traveling with their pup will find a welcoming place to stay at La Quinta Inn and Suites.  This hotel is located at 1001 Veterans Boulevard. La Quinta allows two dogs of any size for no additional charge.


Festus is not just a drive-through town, though. The city has seven parks with 218 acres for a person and a leashed dog to get out and get some exercise and fresh air.  Billy Porter Memorial Park offers a person and their leashed, furry friend a walking path among the trees and flowers.  Shopshire Park is just a few blocks from Main Street. Shopshire has a few different places where a person and a leashed dog can get some exercise. A picnic site with a barbecue grill makes for a good place for a family reunion, and that includes a leashed four-legged family member. Wood City Park has over 100 acres for recreation; the park is mostly comprised of woods. The park has access to Joachim Creek, which is a popular fishing spot. Wood City Park has a one-mile long paved trail for a person and a leashed dog to explore together.
