“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.

“You’ve got ‘em, I’ll walk ‘em! (& love ‘em too)!”

I’ve always had a love for animals and enjoy giving them attention and care. I’ve accidentally made a career from friends calling me to house & pet sit as I'm thorough with providing updates, sending pictures/videos, playing with and love cuddling animals too. I’ve recently added behavioral and dog training to my skills. I love power walking, so rest assured that your dogs will be exercised if they enjoy and/or require it as well. I cannot wait to assist you with all of your dog walking needs!

Dog Walking in Franklinton

Laid-back, family-friendly and full of Southern charm, Franklinton, NC really does have it all -- a small town, neighborly vibe, just twenty-seven miles away from all the bright lights and big city amenities of Raleigh. Lovingly referred to by locals as "Funktown", Franklinton has a strong community spirit that’s clear for all to see, from the perfectly preserved historic buildings on Main Street (many of which are on the National Register of Historic Places) to the town’s ecological commitments as part of the Tree City USA program. In terms of pet care, there’s one veterinary clinic in town, and emergency services are available in Raleigh.

Unfortunately, there’s no designated dog park in Franklinton, but you and your pooch are still sure to sniff out something to do! Franklin City Park is a lovely little spot for a leashed walk, and it’s pretty pawpular with local dog owners, so your four-legged pal might even make some new friends. Outdoorsy pups might also be glad to know that there are some fantastically fur-friendly hiking options nearby. And if your furry friend needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find plenty of opportunities for off-leash adventure just a short drive away!

You’d need to be barking mad not to bring your buddy to Flaherty Dog Park in Wake Forest! Located next to the Flaherty Park playing fields in the quiet and residential neighborhood of Flaherty Farms, there’s plenty of room in this two-acre dog run for even the most hyperactive of hounds to blow off a little steam. The park also has a separate small dog area, so your pup can play and socialize no matter their size, while more athletic animals might appreciate the thorough workout offered by the hilly terrain. Not only that, but there’s even a short walking trail by a pond! Bags and water are provided, so just bring your pooch and prepare to play!

You and your pooch are sure to find somewhere to chow down in downtown Wake Forest! Just fifteen minutes from Franklinton, this beautiful, historic area is full of furrifically Fido-friendly eateries. For a crazy good cup of coffee, consider stopping in at Wake Forest Coffee Company. Their caramel latte is the stuff of local legend, and they cater to canines outside. If seafood is your scene, take a seat at one of the outdoor tables at Backfin Crab House, and be sure to try the chargrilled oysters! Or for an excellent Italian experience, pop into La Foresta Italian Cafe and Pizzeria. They do a mean thin crust, and wagging tails are welcome at their outdoor tables.

If you and your four-pawed pal are looking for something different to do, why not head on down to Henderson and take in a movie? The pawesome Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre allows furry film buffs to join the fun -- as long as they’re leashed, of course. Situated in the southern part of the city where small town gives way to rural, Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre is one of six drive-ins left in North Carolina, and one of the only ones still doing double-features. By all accounts, the snack bar also serves good food -- everything from classic popcorn to Philly cheesesteaks. Unfortunately, though, you’ll need to leave your pup outside while you order.

Falls Lake State Recreation Area is just under a thirty-minute drive from Franklinton, and this fabulous dog-friendly preserve is a real mutts-visit! The recreation is best known for its beach -- unfortunately, though, dogs aren’t allowed in the swimming area. Not to worry -- you’ll find a couple of trails with fantastic views of the lake, as well as a couple of other routes ideal for you and your buddy to sniff and explore. The Mountains to Sea trail in particular is well worth a wander -- the path is rated moderate and well shaded by gorgeous mature trees. There’s a good six-mile trek inside the preserve itself, but the actual route runs for sixty-six miles from -- well, from the mountains to the sea. Best of all, the path is open to foot traffic only, so there’s no need to look out for speeding cyclists!

Make no bones about it, a trip to Hix Dog Park in Oxford is sure to leave your pooch one happy hound! The dog run might not be the largest in the area, but there’s still plenty of room for your little tearaway to run around and tire themselves out in. Like the park in Wake Forest, there’s a separate area for small dogs, and tired owners are sure to appreciate the ample seating. Not only that, but the park is well-shaded by mature trees, so you can let your pup leap about to their heart’s content without worrying about them overheating in the summer sun. All you need in terms of waste bags and water is provided on-site, so all you need to do is BYOB (Bring Your Own Beast)!
