Hi! My name is Gina and I just recently left the corporate world for a reset in life. I love all types of animals but my favorites are "puppies" (aka what I call dogs of all ages!). I have fur nieces and nephews and love every one of them! I believe in treating dogs with love and kindness...just like their fur parents would! I am very dependable, strong value system, a person of integrity, and always go the extra mile. Can't wait to meet your fur baby and take great care of them for you!

“Here to have a fun time for a long time!”
Hello! My name is Tyler. I have always had pets growing up as a child and my love for them has grown into my adulthood even more. I have a passion for learning and understanding all different types of animals. My experience in Pet Care is from having my own pets and caring for family, friends and volunteering at local animal shelters. I have one dog of my own; A German Shepherd named Inga, who I adore! I love training/exercising with them every day and they push me to be the best I can be.

Hi! I have loved dogs all my life so I wanted to find something I could enjoy doing while getting outside and earning extra money. I have owned dogs from a daschund, American bully, husky and her pups, and a chihuahua-terrier mix. I adopted all of my dogs from animal shelters and trained them on my own! I have raised them from puppies to adults but have also trained adult dogs as well. I have 3 years experience with dog walking and have dealt closely with dogs that have specific needs.

Dogs are my passion in life. I have been pet sitting for 20 years and own 5 rescues of my own. I have pulled dogs from shelter and fostered. I have been accused of loving them more than my children! Well....
I love my pets just as much as I will love yours. I am an absolute animal lover, especially dogs. I have cared for dogs of all shapes and sizes from my Pomeranian to my Uncle's Great Pyrenees! I even worked at a vet where I was the primary caretaker for all the dogs and cats that we boarded. I cannot wait to meet your furry babies and give them the best walks ever!

Arbor Acres is a highly commutable city, home to many residents who love to take their show on the road to the surrounding cities of Winston Salem, Lexington, and Salisbury. In this residentially focused town. you may have to cross the border into a surrounding suburb to go to the vet, but the transition between cities is so seamless you’d never know it. One thing you will notice is the friendly atmosphere and tail wagging charm of Arbor Acres. If you’re up for a nibble, take your pup to Lexington Style Trimmings. This Arbor Acres restaurant features a relaxed atmosphere and outdoor, dog-friendly dining as long as the weather is playing along.
After lunch, walk your dog over to Finch Park. This park has everything that busy dogs love to see on their walks. There are playgrounds and sports fields for people watching, plenty of trees and grassy areas for them to pretend they could totally catch that squirrel if you’d let them off leash (please don’t!), and even a water feature towards the south entrance to the park.
Arbor Acres is the perfect pitstop along a road trip, or an amazing place to live. Local dogs rate it four paws way up!
Myers Park in the Meadowview neighborhood of Lexington is a less than a five minute drive from Arbor Acres, and it’s a great park to bring your dog to. It’s a large park conveniently located, and it has plenty of wide open space. While your dog does have to remain on leash inside the park, there’s plenty to see without roaming free. Myers Park is popular enough that you can always have fun people watching as you burn some energy. Walk or jog past the sports fields, or enjoy a roll on the expansive lawn; Myers Park has something for dogs of every activity level.
Green Needles Park in the nearby town of South Pinecrest is a great low-pressure place to go with your dog. This park offers beautiful lawns and great picnic areas, and shade structures over picnic tables that make the area perfect for visiting no matter how hot it is. The park also features play structures if you have human pups to look after as well! Walking the paths around the park is a great way to get some exercise in. Green Needles Park is just 10 minutes by car from Arbor Acres, making it possible to hit this relaxing neighborhood park every day if you want to.
Linwood is a one horse town that’s just 10 minutes from Arbor Acres. The major draw is the Linwood Athletics Field. It’s a great place to go to walk your dog for personal health as well as to burn off some energy. Measure your progress on the track, and take inspiration from the community! The field is large, with a track, open grass space, and sports fields. Dog walkers should stick to the outside tracks and beware of other walkers and joggers making use of the facility, and keep pups on leash. Bring your own water bowls, because all the water fountains here cater to human heights!
Lexington’s Churchland neighborhood is just a twenty minute drive from Arbor Acres. Churchland is home to a great park where you can hike away your energy on 100 acres of quiet, almost secluded nature. Boone’s Cave Park has a historical link to Daniel Boone that’s perfect for history buffs. If your pup is, understandably, less interested in history, he can enjoy the hiking trails and river. Fish or wade in the water, it’s up to you. Dogs should stay on leash in this historical park, but there’s so much to explore that they won’t even notice. Gear up for a hike with water and snacks and spend the day!
When you and your dog need something different, pack up the car and take the easy 30 minute drive to Piedmont Hills in nearby Greensboro. This trip may be long for daily commutes, but it ends in a puptastic place your pooch will love: Greensboro Arboretum. This 17-acre mega-garden has varied plantings that reflect plants both regional and worldwide. It’s lovingly cared for and dogs are welcome to walk on leash as long as you keep them off the delicate and carefully cultivated plant beds. Treat yourself and your dog to these unusual sights and smells. It’s well worth the drive to spend a few hours in this large Piedmont Hills beauty.
