I am a young professional / recent graduate and I absolutely love all kinds of dogs. I really enjoy spending time outdoors and think this would be an amazing side position for me. Not being in a situation that would allow me to adopt my own dog, this is a perfect alternative to spend some quality time with awesome pups!

“Keep those tails Wag!-ging.”

Hello! I have owned at least one dog for the last 17 years. I have had dogs as small as a Shih Tzu to a Goldendoodle. I recently gave my Goldendoodle to a neighbor who has a door with separation anxiety, our dogs became friends and once we realized how much she helped him I decided to do a good deed. Along with taking care of my own dogs, I have also helped to take care of dogs belonging to family, friends and friends.

Dog Walking in Leland

Just 12 minutes west of Wilmington, and an easy drive from the Brunswick Islands, lies the Town of Leland. This quiet and charming town is the ideal home base for those who want to have easy access to the amenities and attractions of a big city without having to live in one. Leland has two veterinary hospitals to ensure the well-being of the community's furry residents and visitors.

Leland is home to a number of parks where you can bring your best friend for a leashed walk. One such spot is the Leland Community Park, which has a paved walking path that will take you and Fido past a playground, picnic shelters, baseball fields, and a recycling area.

The 8-acre Leland Municipal Complex Park also offers a place to stroll, with its open green spaces and a 0.6-mile paved, multi-use path. Other features of the town's first park include a playground, picnic tables, benches, and a gazebo. Free Wi-Fi is available as well.

If Fido requires walking long distances before getting tired, head to the 35-acre Northwest District Park. Strolling around the site will take you and your pooch past multiple athletic fields and courts, including 5 baseball/softball fields and 8 acres of practice area.

Get ready for a pawsome time with your pup in Leland!

The Cypress Cove Park, formerly called Sturgeon Creek Park, is the pawfect spot to spend some quiet time in nature with your pup. Located off a dirt road, this park is never crowded and offers peaceful views of Mill Creek. With 27 acres of wetlands, and 1.2 acres of uplands, it serves as the town's first water access site. As you and Fido walk around Cypress Cove Park, you'll find a canoe/kayak launch, fixed deck overlook, fishing area, floating dock, and an outdoor classroom. There are no bathrooms or concessions on-site, so it's advisable to bring some snacks and treats if you plan on staying for a bit.

The Westgate Nature Park is another beautiful, fairly secluded spot where you can get some exercise while enjoying the fresh air with Fido. Tucked behind a commercial and residential area, this park contains a 0.3-mile nature trail that will lead you and your furry buddy into the woods, before coming to an elevated boardwalk and outdoor classroom overlooking the wetlands environment. Other features include picnic tables, a nature-inspired playground with tree-themed and animal-shaped equipment, and a grassy lawn area for small gatherings. Fact sheets about the area's flora and fauna can be found along the trail and in the playground.

Is Fido itching to go off-leash? If you're a resident of Brunswick Forest, you're in luck—there's no need to leave the neighborhood to go find a dog park. Located at Meadow Park, the private and popular Brunswick Forest Bark Park offers two separate areas for community dogs of different sizes to socialize and romp unfettered. Both sections are fenced in for security, with fresh water and pet waste stations provided. Mulched grounds give the dogs a nice surface to play on, and a shaded picnic pavilion gives you and the other dog parents a place to cool off while keeping an eye on your pups.

Staying in town for a few days with your pooch? Check into the pet-friendly Holiday Inn Express, where two pets up to 50 pounds are welcome for an extra fee.

Treat your best pal to a leisurely riverside stroll at the Brunswick Riverwalk at Belville.

The Brunswick Riverwalk also has a viewing deck overlooking the water, a large fishing pier, and boat access for kayaks and canoes.
