“Your dog’s BEST FRIEND”

Hi, I'm Quinton! I have had various breeds of dogs while growing up (German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, and Bullmastiff just to name a few). I've fostered, groomed and walked many different breeds of dogs as well! I'm an overall fun and active person, so your dog will definitely have a great time with me! I love jogging too, so if you prefer that your canine friend is more active, I can definitely accommodate.

I have spent the past 20+ years in an office and now I get to be outside that window walking our best friends rain or shine. I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin where I learned to take care of many kinds of animals but I saw first hand how smart and caring dogs are and will never forget our hero. Skipper our little Boston Terrier followed Joe our large Shepard/Lab mix all over the farm and one day right into a creek he couldn't get out of. Joe ran home barking out of control and lead me back to saved his little buddy from drowning. Since then Tyson our fluffy white Samoyed and I passed our training classes and he learned to walk beside me instead of pulling me like I was a sled. I also have two Gran dogs, Reeses a Springer Spaniel who searches the whole house until he finds me when he visits and Simba a Golden Retriever who I just taught how to high-five. Dogs are amazing animals that deserve all the love back they give so unconditionally!

Dog Walking in Apex

Apex, North Carolina, is one of the suburbs of Raleigh and a very pet-friendly community. There are many animal-related attractions and amenities located in the large town. Apex is a great place for families, including families with cats, dogs or other pets. There is a lot of green and a strong community spirit which makes Apex one of the most attractive cities in the country.

One of the most beloved (or maybe barktastic!) parks in the city is the Apex Community Park. This sprawling community park offers recreational trails through woodlands and alongside a large lake. There are also benches, shelters, picnic tables and much more. Dogs are allowed to take advantage of the beauty, scenery, and activities as long as they are leashed.

Apex also offers off-leash opportunities for local dog owners as there are dog parks located at Hunter Street Park and Apex Nature Park. These parks are fully fenced and allow dogs to roam and romp around without a leash. Both dog parks are open to members only to ensure the safety and maintenance of the parks.

The American Tobacco Trail, a 22-mile rails-to-trails route that winds through Wake County, makes for a more historical and cultural expedition. While dogs have to be leashed at all times, the hiking trail makes for an interesting experience for both dogs and their owners.
