“A pup a day keeps the sads away!”

I wasn’t able to have pets of my own (due to my mother’s allergies) as a child, so I learned to love other’s doggos as if they were mine own. I will treat your pup with the care and dignity they deserve. There’s no such thing as a bad dog, and I’d be honored to care for your precocious pooch whenever needed. I have a strong sense of responsibility, critical thinking, problem solving, and compassion. You can count on to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your good, good dog!!

Dog Walking in St Joseph

Saint Joseph is right on the edge of Missouri, bordered by Kansas and the Missouri River. The town has been called a top true Western city. Whether you're here for the western appeal or small town status, you and Fido will end up staying thanks to the dog-friendly atmosphere, a large number of parks, and 10 veterinarians.

The Corby Dog Park is a great example of dog-friendliness in the city, with 4 acres of open area that's completely fenced-in, complete with separate places for large and small pups. The park is popular among residents and provides a great place for Fido to socialize, run, play and enjoy other dog amenities like dog-sized water fountains, double-gated entrance, and clean-up stations. There is a membership fee to get into the park.

Those pups and humans who are in love with nature will love the Dupree Memorial Conservation Area, a 236-acre natural area with 1.75 miles of shoreline along the Missouri River. There are paved and nature trails that span throughout the park, with sights of wildlife, natural trees, and wetlands. Dogs must remain on a leash 6 feet or shorter while in the park, and humans must remember to bring water and clean-up bags.

Pups looking for a short walk, a place to play or a long hike through natural areas will be happy in Saint Joseph.
