Spending time with doggies is one of my very favorite things to do. I love the fun and simplicity of a stroll with a dog, and getting to know each dog’s distinct vibe. Dogs always bring a smile to my face and as corny as it may sound, I want to show them how much I appreciate them!!

I'm a psychologist looking to spend my free time exercising with furry friends! My clients often comment on my calm and comforting demeanor. I believe that this quality benefits both my human and animal companions. Growing up, I was the "go-to" pet-sitter and dog-walker for my friends and neighbors. I also value fitness, so let me know if your pup likes to run!

I love dogs!! I have three shelter dogs and have been dog sitting for friends for a few years now. My favorite past time is to take my dogs to the dog park and try not to fall in love with every dog I meet. I am college bound and am looking for an enjoyable way to earn money for my schooling.

I am a young professional / recent graduate and I absolutely love all kinds of dogs. I really enjoy spending time outdoors and think this would be an amazing side position for me. Not being in a situation that would allow me to adopt my own dog, this is a perfect alternative to spend some quality time with awesome pups!

Hello! I have owned at least one dog for the last 17 years. I have had dogs as small as a Shih Tzu to a Goldendoodle. I recently gave my Goldendoodle to a neighbor who has a door with separation anxiety, our dogs became friends and once we realized how much she helped him I decided to do a good deed. Along with taking care of my own dogs, I have also helped to take care of dogs belonging to family, friends and friends.

Dog Walking in Boiling Spring Lakes

Nestled between Winnabow and Southport, Boiling Spring Lakes is a close-knit community that's home to more than 50 natural and man-made lakes. Boiling Spring Lakes is named for an actual boiling spring, and at the heart of the city is the 275-acre “Big Lake.” There are no veterinary clinics in the city, but the closest one is just a short, 12-minute drive away in nearby Supply.

Experience the great outdoors of Boiling Spring Lakes with your pup at the Boiling Spring Lakes Preserve! Covering half of the city's incorporated area, the preserve spans nearly 7,000 acres and contains a myriad of rare flora and fauna. Start your adventure at the BSL Community Center trailhead and follow the trail through a portion of the preserve's fragile acres. Along the way, you and Fido will come across various carnivorous plants, vascular plant species, and the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker.

If Fido prefers a more laid-back trip, head over to North Lake Park. This waterfront park offers serene views of North Lake, with a fishing dock that allows you and your pooch to get closer to the water. Or, you can just sit back and relax on one of the bench swings.

No visit to Boiling Spring Lakes is complete without swinging by the city's centerpiece, Patricia Lake, also known as the “Big Lake.” The only public boat access to this 275-acre lake can be found in Alton Lennon Park, where you and your pup can take a pleasant leashed stroll by the water. Bench swings and a picnic shelter with tables to relax in are available as well. Spring Lake Park is another beautiful spot that's great for waterside walkies. You'll also find a short nature trail next to the beach that will lead you and your pup through a variety of plants.

Located behind the city hall, the Robert Muse Memorial Park is a woofderful spot to spend a nice afternoon with your doggo. This park is quieter since it's off the main road, so you and Fido can head here if you're not a fan of crowds. Aside from snifftastic grassy areas, the Robert Muse Memorial Park features a playground, picnic shelter, tennis court, and basketball court. After walking around the park with Fido, hop in the car and take a quick drive to the Pepperoni Grill to grab something to eat. This pizzeria offers more than just pizza, so snag an outdoor picnic table with your pup and order up.

If you and Fido find yourselves in the eastern part of town, you're in luck—there are three furrific parks in this area, all located within a mile of each other. Mirror Lake Park is a lovely waterfront park with a bench swing and picnic table where you and your pooch can take a pawse and look out onto the lake. Seminole Lake Park, situated next to the railroad tracks, also offers beautiful views of the water. The Charles Schneiders Park, while not a waterfront park, includes open grassy areas for Fido to explore and a picnic shelter where you both can have a snack.

Has Fido been a good boy? Then reward him with a trip to the dog park! About 14 minutes south of Boiling Spring Lakes, the Salty Dog Park in neighboring Southport will surely set your pup's tail wagging with its two off-leash sections for big and small dogs. Don't worry if your dog's a high jumper, as the park's 6-foot-high fencing will surely keep him in. The Salty Dog Park has lots of room for your pooch to run around, as well as shade trees to keep him from overheating. Bring your own water, though, as there is no water spigot or fountain on-site.
