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.

“It's always a nice day for a walk !”

Hello, I'm Tuan. I recently retired from a long career as a software engineer in RTP. Now, my daily exercise is to walk and explore the various neighborhoods in the triangle. I'd love to have your dog as my companion. The walk will do both of us good. I grew up with dogs and cats always underfoot. Unfortunately, my kids have pet dander allergies so no pets in the house for the long term. My wife and I handle our addiction by doing fostering weekends for one of the local shelters.

Over the years, friends and family have entrusted their precious pets in my care because they trusted my abilities and knew that I would treat their pets as I would my own. Spending my days with cats and dogs is the ultimate job. Kinda hard to even call it a “job.” Who can resist wags, wet kisses and lap naps? Certainly not me.

Dog Walking in Garner

Serving as a suburb to both Raleigh and Durham, the town of Garner, North Carolina was officially founded in 1905; however, its history goes all the way back to 1751! It’s no surprise that Garner has not just one but three different sites registered with the National Register of Historic Places. Garner is also known for being the hometown of both Scotty McCreery, winner of American Idol, and Chris Culliver, an NFL player. With lots of small town charm and the amenities of having a big city so close by, Garner’s a great place for families.

Don’t forget, though: your canine companion is part of the family, too, and Garner’s a great city for your dog! While there isn’t a ton to do with your dog within Garner, there are numerous attractions located within twenty miles of the town, no matter which direction you head. There are also several veterinarians to choose from in Garner, so you and your family can pick one who’s the best option for your dog. There’s also an emergency veterinarian hospital, and while no one wants to think about an emergency involving their pet, it’s good to have a plan. Visit Garner for the best of both worlds: small town charm, big city feeling.

Fido can dine with you at an outdoor table, if you want to bring him along for the fun. He’ll need to stay on his leash while you eat, and good behavior is mandatory.
