I am a recent college graduate. I am dependable and graduated through AFROTC. At home I have three Australian Shepherds and in high school I volunteered over 300 hours at the animal shelter helping dogs get adopted. Then in college I couldn’t get a dog because I was not able to get a dog, but I did foster a dog for 9 months while her owner was deployed through Dogs on Deployment. I will care for your dog and love your dog as if they were my own. Thank you. :)

Dog Walking in Columbus

The lively area of Columbus is surrounded by watery swamps, bordered by the Tennesse-Tombigbee Waterway to the west, and Columbus Lake to the northwest. The city isn't near any major towns and barely has any smaller neighboring towns, creating a small peaceful area to live in. Not only is it peaceful, the small city has the motto "The Friendly City", which is also true when regarding the four-legged residents of Columbus. With a dog-friendly attitude, natural and developed parks, and 8 animal hospitals, it's no wonder the city is so popular among dog-lovers.


The largest park located in the city is Lake Lowndes Park that provides nearly 200 acres of open space, recreational fields, and trails to enjoy around Lake Lowndes. The number of activities you can do with your pup is endless, with spots available to hike, picnic, kayak, fish, swim, or play. Additionally, there are recreationally fields that include enclosed tennis courts, baseball fields, volleyball court, and soccer fields. Dogs do not have to be on a leash inside the park, but must remain under verbal control and are not allowed in any building facilities.

If you wanna stay inside the city and play with your pup safely, the city's Bark Park will provide a great escape from the bustling city center. Inside the fenced-in park, there are separate areas for small and large dogs, with double-gated entrances, agility equipment, benches, water fountains, and clean-up stations for your pup. 

Columbus is a musical, busy, and dog-friendly city that continues to provide new and outdoor places to spend with Fido.
