I've worked in NYC as a full-time dog walker for a company for well over a year. All of my pups had different personalities and it was enjoyable getting to know them. I've formed a genuine relationship with all of my furry friends and it's always hard to say goodbye .. even after our scheduled walks. They love as freely as I do and that's why I enjoy spending time with them. I hope to meet your best furry friend soon!!

I am a lifelong avid dog lover! My father always had dogs and as an adult, I have never been without at least one. My first pup was a golden retriever named Hannah and she was followed by a golden named Simon...then a white shepherd named Lum, a rescue mix Layla, a rescue mix lab named Basil and finally my first ever small dogs, Nala and Aslan. They are 3 and 4 year old Chinese Crested Powderpuffs and are the light of my life. I am so wild about dogs that when I pass by them, I gush to my husband about how cute they are and it has become a running joke in the family about how I coo over them like most people do babies...can't help myself!

Dog Walking in Efland

Let's take a trip in time. Let's go back in history to Orange County in the 1700s. This is the heart of the Native American community. They thrive on living off the land. Their belief is that, if you take care of the land, it will take care of you. As more and more Americans started to move west, they took this land. They cut down trees. For a while, this became a war zone. It simply wasn't safe for anyone anymore. This is where the Treaty came in. The newcomers took lessons from the Native Americans, and Efland became the center of peace, and hope, an example to the surrounding areas. 

While you are taking in the history of this area, visit the David Faucette House. Here, you can learn more about the architecture of the area and see what homes looked like back them. Outside tours run daily, and you can bring your dog with you! Inside tours are by appointment only, and are breed restrictive. 

The Efland Rodeo puts on a great show if you are looking for something to do, but you can't take your dog inside the shop. However, you can stop by the gift shop, which is open daily, anytime you are in the area. They even have something for your best fur-iend: personalized dog collars! They also do engraving if you want something a little extra. When the rodeo isn't in session, you can bring your dog with you.

Hankering for a hike? Occoneechee Mountain Trail is less than ten miles from you. It's about two miles long and takes approximately an hour to complete. If you want more of an adventure, you can find a map with other trails at the beginning of this trail, or check out the visitor's area. Most of the trails are marked. You should stay on the marked trail to minimize your risk of being caught unaware by wildlife and to stay out of poisonous plants. Your dog will love all the new smells as you explore, but he will need to stay on a leash. You will find that this is an area that is all-natural, so there is no running water.
