“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.

I have previously worked for a pet supply store and am aware of pet products and issues that dogs might have. I am fun-loving and cautious at the same time.

“Making dogs happy makes me happy!”

I got my first pup when I was 4 years old. I was in love. My childhood aspiration was always to be a vet. When I was 14, my neighbor referred me to a vet clinic where I walked and fed the dogs. I stayed there for about 6 years, moving up as an assistant to the doctor and learning more about caring for animals. I housesat and stayed with other people’s pups while they were on vacation. I always owned a dog as well. Now, I own 2 dogs and a rabbit. We love them like family because to us, they are.

“Traded nursing for dogs and loving it!”

Hello! I was Registered Nurse for 10 years. I traded caring for humans, for caring for animals two years ago. I am so happy I did, because now I get to care animals and their humans. This was a great choice and the pet therapy has done wonders for my mental well being. I am comfortable administering all forms of medications including oral, eye drops, injections (insulin) and even inhalers. Feel free to book me, my schedule is usually pretty flexible. I can’t wait to meet your dog!

Herculaneum is a small town that takes care of its furry friends at All Bark Village Dog Park. This large, grassy field is fully fenced so dogs can rid themselves of their leash and make a few new canine pals. The ground is mostly grass, with concrete pads set aside complete with hoses to rinse away a hard day of play. Parts of the dog park do get muddy after a rain, so the rinse area is a convenient way to keep the car clean for the ride home. Water fountains designed for humans and dogs also include a top section that makes it easy to refill a water bottle. Waste stations are positioned around the dog park. The dog park has a separately fenced area for small dogs to play as well as benches where pet parents can relax while supervising their pups. This dog park is free and open to the public a half hour before sunrise, and closes a half hour after sunset.
