Hi, I have lived with and loved animals my entire life. I have rehabilitated wildlife and I currently foster animals for a rescue as well. I own 3 dogs of my own. I have a Mastiff who is 5, a Miniature Pinscher mix who is 13, and a Chihuahua mix who is 9. They bring joy to my life everyday. I am looking forward to meeting your pet and taking them on a memorable walk.

Dog Walking in Statesville

Statesville is a large city with the appeal of small-town life. Everyone knows everyone here, but it can get pretty busy thanks to the two interstate highways that pass through. Because of the two highways, the city has adopted the motto "Crossroads for the Future". Only 45 minutes from North Carolina's largest city of Charlotte, the town makes a great place to stop or live in for you and Fido.

Taking Fido out for a walk to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Park will be the best decision you make all day. The park is 25 acres with a large body of water called Lakewood Pond. The gorgeous rolling hills and water fountain provide a serene setting with open spaces, two pavilions, scenic bridge, benches, and a base trail system that lead into the wooded area of the park. Don't forget to leash Fido up before coming out!

The Bigleaf Slopes Park is another popular place for dog walkers, thanks to the thick woods, 2.5 miles of multi-use trails, hilly landscape, and open areas. Leashed dogs have plenty of room to stretch their legs and run around, or can enjoy a shady walk in the park, with additional access to water fountains, benches, and trash bins.

The homely area of Statesville cares about each visitor, resident, and pup, and continues to do so by providing six veterinarians and adding more acres to each dog-friendly park every year.
