“Overprotective caretaker.”

Hi. My name is Theresa and I have had dogs most of my life. I LOVE dogs and most all other animals. I have been walking dogs with WAG since 2017; over 3,000 in fact. I am experienced with all sized dogs with good temperaments. I cannot handle aggressive dogs or extremely strong pullers. I am overprotective and caring when I am in charge. Most dogs like me. Only a few have been anxious and unreceptive of me. Rest assured, your fur babies will be safe and have a positive experience.

Dog Walking in Cary

In 1970, Cary was called Bradford’s Ordinary. The founder of the town, Allison Francis "Frank" Page, made a purchase of all surrounding railroad junctions in 1854. Frank Page ended up naming the development 'Cary' after a former Ohio Congressmen and prohibitionist he likened, Samuel Fenton Cary. Surviving its railroad roots, the city is now known as the Technology Town of North Carolina since over 97% of the citizens have access to the internet.

One of the largest municipal parks in Wake County is Fred G. Bond Metro Park or "Bond Park." Bond Park is a 310-acre park with athletic fields, an amphitheater, and a playground. Dogs are welcome. If you're dropping in be sure to bring Rover for a walk along the lake or hike on their trails. If he gets tired, don't worry, there’s a drinking fountain in the area to keep him hydrated. Bring your dog for a walk with Nature at the Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve. You can enjoy some outdoor activities that can vary from bird and wildlife watching, nature and historical exhibits or a simple walk on their trails with Rover while watching the scenic beauty of nature. Other than being a family-oriented, green city, Cary also has plenty of restaurants, parks, hotels and business centers that welcome pets. No wonder it was included in Money Magazine’s Best Places to Live list for 2006.

It’s open until 10 p.m., and provides lights for those night owl growlers and their humans, as well as water, waste receptacles and bags, benches and a gazebo. Owners need to obtain a municipal pass for entry to the dog park, and show proof of rabies vaccination.  This neighborhood is also home to 2 dog-friendly restaurants. The Lucky Chicken serves Peruvian fare, while Noodle Boulevard offers noodle and rice bowls, kimchi and other Asian street food. Both offer outdoor tables that welcome your pup!

In Greenwood Acres, beautiful Walnut Street Park is one of Cary’s most scenic, and of course dog-friendly, parks.  Situated on 11 acres, and equipped with restrooms, this park features a brick paved promenade (no, it’s not the yellow brick road, Toto), plus wetlands crisscrossed by walkable boardwalks, easygoing paved trails, playgrounds for the little humans, and an open 1.4-acre lawn with tables and a shelter, where a picnic or a game of frisbee or fetch is welcome. Just 2.5 loops of the paved loop trail equal 1 mile, and the park is open sunrise to sunset. Come out and play, fur-babies!
