“Happy Paws make Happy Owners, One walk @ a Time!!”

Hi my name is Lisa, I’ve worked with animals ever since I was 14 years old. I previously worked as a supervisor at Lake Norman pet Paradise, I learned a lot in the two years of working there such as observing the dogs behavior. I’ve gain a lot of trust and confidence in myself when it comes to aggressive dogs, and learning limitations for senior dogs. I know how to match up large, medium & small dogs due to their temperament in separate yards so each dog can have a fun and safe day at day camp.

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.
