    “I'm there for your dog as if he/she were my own!”

    I've loved dogs my entire life. I strive to be a good dog person, meaning I try to assist friends in training and gladly help out when needed. I have not met a dog I didn't like and vice versa. I have always had dogs of my own and made sure they were trained and socialized.

    “It is my pleasure to walk with your pups!”

    Hello! I have been house/pet sitting for over two years, usually taking care of multiple animals. Almost all of the sits have become repeat business and friends. I am dependable, prompt, and physically fit! Allow me to earn your trust and friendship on Wag! in the dog walking business. I am here to help. I will give your pups the loving attention they need, and will always pick up the poo on our walks! Thank you for your consideration!

    What makes me a great choice to care for your fur baby is that I love dogs! I believe that dogs need a healthy Dog Walker/Sitter because I will be consistent and playful with your fur baby. Now that I am in college I never have time to see my two pit-bulls at home. I believe that this will be a great opportunity for me to be able to have that reconnection with dogs through your pet. I would greatly enjoy spending time with them!

    The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center is a great spot to let Fido roam around and explore. The site usually houses horse and has equestrian events, but it is also filled with great trails, streams, ponds, and woods for Fido to explore. The nature center is 384-acres of hardwood forest, meadows, and wetlands, which gives your dog a quiet area to explore. The two of you can watch for birds, or stay until it is dark and watch the stars. The trail near the nature center is six miles long and features a hard-paved surface for people that are physically challenged.

    The Book Shelf is four miles out of Columbus in Tryon, and the perfect spot to get a little shopping done with Fido by your side. This small independent bookstore offers books in a variety of subjects, and welcomes your pup to wander around the store with you. After a fun day out shopping, head into Huckleberry's Tryon and grab a bite to eat. Huckleberry's serves everything from lobster tolls to sloppy Joe waffles. They have a BYOB (bring your own beer) policy, and best of all, they offer a menu specially catered to your pup.

    Up in the mountains of nearby Saluda is the Pulliam Creek Trail. This pawsome trail is great to go on an adventure with your pup by your side. The trail is 6.5-miles, is moderately difficult, and generally takes about three hours to complete in full, so be aware of the time if you want a shorter walk. The trail will take you by a river that Fido can splash around in, but make sure to keep him on leash when hiking. The trail is also known to be used for hunting between September and May, so throw some orange on Fido so he will be seen. Don't forget your water and clean-up bags.
