Hi there! My name is Clay and I am very excited to have the opportunity to meet you and your dog! I'm a student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and I spend most of my time in between the Greensboro metro area and the Pinehurst/Moore County, NC area. I've had dogs my entire life and I have been a dog sitter and walker since I was a kid. My first dog in my family was a very gentle and fun-loving Rottweiler named Molly. After she passed away in 2004, it took two full years before my family was able to welcome another furry friend to our family. Hogan, or as we affectionately call him "Hogie," is a Cockapoo who is 12 years old now. I've spent much of my life with him and I can't wait to get a puppy of my very own this summer! I am very happy to work with you and your pup! I can't wait to make even more furry (and human) friends through Wag!

To the west of Burlington is the bordering village of Elon, home to the Elon Dog Park.

Be aware that dogs must have visible evidence of a current rabies vaccination to enter the dog park.
