“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.

Hi. My name is Theresa and I have had dogs most of my life. I LOVE dogs and most all other animals. I love being around them which is why I want to walk them and care for them. Family friends have trusted me with their beloved dogs. Most recently a neighbor of mine asked me to walk and care for her Border Collie after only knowing me a few weeks. Her dog loved and trusted me and I loved her. Please know that I LOVE all my furry clients even if I'm not always available to walk them.

Dog Walking in Carpenter Village

Although officially an unincorporated community, the town of Carpenter, North Carolina is a thriving area! In order for the town to be an “unincorporated community,” it isn’t technically part of the greater municipality, but it’s still under the Wake County’s jurisdiction. It’s great for people who enjoy the best a small town has to offer, and in Carpenter’s case, it’s definitely Southern charm! Don’t be fooled, though; you can still enjoy the luxuries bigger cities have to offer. Raleigh and Chapel Hill are only 30 minutes away from Carpenter, and Cary is only a 15-minute drive up the road.

Carpenter is great for dog owners, too! With two veterinarian clinics, care is never too far away, and when your dog is sick or injured, time is critical. The town doesn’t have any dog-friendly dining options, and there are also no dog parks for Fido to run around in. Don’t fret, though. There are also plenty of dog-friendly attractions located within a short drive’s distance, so fun is never too far out of your reach. If you’re looking for a quiet area with all the amenities of a large city nearby, Carpenter has what you’re searching for!

About thirty minutes from Carpenter is Raleigh’s Carolina Pines Dog Park. Carolina Pines has two separate areas. One’s for smaller dogs who might not enjoy getting bowled over by large but lovable dogs, and the other is for – you guessed it – larger dogs. This ensures that your pup can safely play with his pawesome new pals! The park provides water for your pooch, but you’re responsible for bringing waste disposal bags to clean up after your dog. This is an off-leash, fenced-in bark park. Have a ball at Carolina Pines!

If you’re willing to drive five miles, you and Sparky can enjoy Cary Dog Park, located in Cary’s Robert V Godbold Park! Although this dog park is only one acre, there’s still plenty of room for your dog to run around. Cary Dog Park also gives your pup the chance to socialize and make new friends, and since dogs are pack animals, it’s a good opportunity for him to practice his manners. Like most dog parks, there’s a separate section for small dogs. Water and waste disposal bags aren’t provided, and you’ll need a pass to use this bark park.

In the mood to chow down with your chowhound? Visit Groves at Morrisville, which is just five minutes east of Carpenter. If you’re in the mood for Mexican, pay a visit to Sol Azteca Mexican Restaurant. This low-key establishment dishes up quesadillas, burritos, and more. If you love guacamole, try theirs; it’s made fresh! Don’t share any with Fido, though, when you dine with him on the patio; avocado and onion are both known to make dogs very sick, and that’s every pup parent’s worst nightmare. A leash is required, as is good behavior.

Sometimes, you just want to go explore nature, and what could be more fun than bringing your dog with you? Blands, located about nine miles from Carpenter, is home to the Eagle Spur Rail-Trail. This former railway was converted to a trail which is perfect for hikers, bikers, and inline-skaters. Fido will need to be on his leash when the two of you walk this 2.5-mile trail. You’ll want to wear comfortable shoes, and you’ll also want to have water for you and your dog and waste disposal bags on hand. It never hurts to be prepared!

Looking for more dog-friendly dining options? Stone Creek Village in Cary, about five minutes from Carpenter, has options the whole family will love! If you want the classic burgers and shake combo, head to Burger 21. Locals rave about how good the burgers are. Doherty’s Irish Pub and Restaurant serves up delicious wings, sandwiches, and, of course, fish and chips. Fido can join you at either of these locations, as long as the weather permits outdoor dining. He’ll need to stay on his leash, and you’re responsible for cleaning up after him.
