“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.

Dog Walking in Clayton

If you find yourself in the breathtaking state of North Carolina, you’d be missing out if you skipped out on the city of Clayton. An especially dog-friendly city in the midst of some of the country’s best scenery, Clayton is sure to please both you and your puppy pal. 

Make your way to East Clayton Dog Park, a well-maintained, three-acre fenced in area for off-leash play for both large and small dogs. While small and large dogs are divided into two smaller sections by a fence, you’ll be grateful that you’re able to keep up with your dog in such a massive area for your hound to follow their instincts and chase down some critters! 

In addition to the beautiful dog park in Clayton, there are a number of restaurants for you and your pal to check out as well. Get your pup all tuckered out with a day at the park, and then find yourself a ritzy place to get a good bite to eat. There’s no shortage of good options, with eleven restaurants to choose from. Let your doggy’s nose guide you to the perfect destination; after all, they are the professional sniffer here!

In addition to hosting the pawfect dog park, East Clayton also happens to have its fair share of tasty morsels for you to sample -- maybe your pup, too, if they’re really good! A hop and a skip away from the dog park, you’ll find Skylines Cafe, a highly-rated spot for lunch and dinner. They have plenty of space for you and your canine companion in the outdoor seating area. The employees are happy to cater to dietary needs, so if your pup isn’t the only one who can’t handle greasy food, this is just the place. There are gluten free options, as well as vegetarian and vegan.

Keep on trucking along and you’ll soon find yourself traversing US 70. Intersecting Shotwell Road at the most populated area, you’ll find your share of treats if you keep on the path. Your dog’s nose will thank you when you come across Lone Star Steakhouse, a high-class establishment that serves up tastes of Texas and some doggone good steaks. There are only two outdoor tables, so this might be the place for you if your dog is too overwhelmed by crowds. With the beautiful scenery of North Carolina’s hills and plains all around you, the serene moment with your favorite companion can’t be beat.

A ways toward the west, you’ll find yourself in the nearby city of Garner, and the beautiful Lake Benson Park. Make a path to the north and your taste buds will thank you. Your dog will be even more happy to find this secret gem hidden in plain sight. A lot of people would overlook Aversboro Restaurant, and they would miss a golden opportunity. With the simple dog-friendly patio, it’s a relatively innocuous location, and that’s what makes it pawsitively amazing! It’s not some tourist trap where your pup will be hounded by noisy children; it’s a good place with good food. Try their wings, make sure to bring some treats for your pup, and enjoy a lazy evening out on the patio.

Once you’ve made your rounds in the area, you may want to return to the heart of Clayton. Here, you’ll find a restaurant with that famous Carolina Barbecue that so many visit North Carolina for. Smithfields Chicken and Bar-B-Q isn’t just for pulled pork, however. Their chicken is definitely a treat for your taste buds, and your dog will be eager just to get a good sniff. The outdoor area is a perfect place for your pup to play while you step inside to order. Be sure to save some room for some banana pudding; the locals swear by it! Don't fur-get to bring a leash and your dog's water bowl.
