“I will treat your pup as if they were my own!”

I have one rescue dog of my own, volunteer at a rescue organization, work at local Kennel Club events, and care for my neighbor’s dog when they are away. I still have time to take your fur baby for a walk, and would be happy to get them out for some fresh air and exercise! I understand that pets are family, and you can be sure that I will do everything to make their time with me safe and enjoyable.

“More than a walk - Extra Photos & Play/spoil time”

My volunteer time in vet clinics, providing many years off care to my, family & friends’ fur babies, has me well equipped to provide the level of care your bark & purr family members deserve. During my years with Wag, I’ve strived to make sure dogs get attention &/or play time before & after their walks. When doing boardings, sittings & walks, there will be plenty of photo updates, detailed reports of care and grooming/training (as needed/requested). Your baby’ll surely get lots of love from me!

Hi, my name is Justine. I am a certified dog trainer since early 2013. For 2.5 years I worked at a boarding, training and daycare facility. I've worked with all types of breeds and sizes, from teacup chihuahuas to 150lb great danes. I love all dogs and their multitudes of personalities; they're super fun to watch and play with. At work, I was the one who worked most strongly and connected with dogs who suffered from anxieties, but I love being around all dogs, regardless. I own two dogs, a pitbull mix and a coonhound/lab mix. They are both abuse rescues. I'd love to meet your dog and spend time with them! Daily exercise is very important, and a tired dog is a happy dog.

“Committed excellent dog loving walker”

I have always loved dogs. I have taken care of my neighbors dogs and helped them by walking and grooming them as needed. I have been doing this since I was 9 years old. We had a border collie Beagle who was my best friend. I have experience with most breeds. Especially breeds that may need a bit more love and attention. I am very observant to the dogs behavior as we walk and help them when they get afraid. I do this by letting them know they are safe. I recently adopted a dog.

Dog Walking in Unionville

Unionville is a fast-growing suburb of Charlotte pawpular with gentleman farmers and commuters whose pups enjoy country living. Don't let the small-town vibe fool you: Unionvillians can be in Downtown Charlotte in half an hour. If wilderness is more your game, though, an hour drive to the northeast will have you in the heart of the 51,000-acre Uwharrie National Forest and the National Recreation Trail spanning its length, just waiting for your on-leash pack to come and play.

While there are no public parks inside the Unionville town limits, there are several lovely green spaces closer to home. Fairview Park in Monroe, just north of Unionville, has a paved walking path around a lake; on-leash dogs are welcome, but neighbors ask that you clean up any messes. Blair Mill Park in Stallings is still under development, but the 18-hole disc golf course, plus meadows and nature walks, make for a furrific day out.

Though the nearby retail hubs are outside the town border, Unionville’s location puts creature comforts within reach. Carolina Pet Pantry is a locally-owned food and supply emporium located on the Unionville-Indian Trail Road in Indian Trail. There are also six veterinary practices within a few minutes of town, most along Highway 74. Let’s hope no one needs it, but there’s a nearby 24-hour emergency animal hospital in Matthews.

Downtown Monroe is 8 miles from Unionville and a lovely spot for a stroll. Belk-Tonawanda Park is in the middle of everything. Wide lawns and mature hardwood trees set a relaxing vibe, and the walking track is a great place to work off a long day with your very best friend — on-leash, please. Beginning at the park, you can follow the Downtown Greenway, a well-marked 1.5 mile loop through the parks and shopping district of Monroe. To brush up on local history while your pup meets all the locals, download the Historical Downtown Walking Tour map from the town’s website. When you’re all walked-out, have a sit at the outdoor seating at Stone Table and enjoy their elevated American fare with a Southern twist.

On the eastern outskirts of Monroe, you’ll find suburban shopping and dining options that are missing back in Unionville, 8 miles away. You can let your buddy chose the restaurant: there are 10 dog-friendly eateries with outdoor seating along Roosevelt Highway. Head north towards the mall if your pup prefers Asian fusion or wants to skip dinner for ice cream. Head south towards the golf course for burgers or Mexican. Then, keep going to reach the Monroe Golf Course, a public facility managed by the city. There’s a scenic stretch of the Carolina Thread Trail that follows Richardson Creek between the landscaped course and natural forest. The round-trip hike from the parking lot is about 1.5 miles.

One of the largest parks near Unionville, Crooked Creek Park is just 7 miles from home. The walking paths and 18-hole disc golf course provide plenty of on-leash recreation, and the park's athletic facilities mean there will be neighbors around to meet and greet. It's the off-leash dog park, though, that will really get your puppies jumping. There are separate areas for small and large dogs with a waste station and good mix of sun and shade. Just a few blocks west on Sardis Road/Wesley Chapel, you can grab a bite at one of four pet-friendly restaurants near the intersection with Old Monroe. Toast your pup's health with a beer and a burger at Hickory Tavern, or maybe with coffee and a puppucino at Starbucks.

The city of Mint Hill is 11 miles from Unionville, and it's the pawfect destination whether you want to get fit or just indulge. Start at Veterans Memorial Park, where a one-mile nature trail and disk-golf course will earn you some treats. You can drink or eat yours on the huge patio at Dunwellz Custom Kitchen and Pour House or one of the other three dog-friendly restaurants downtown. Then be sure to stop by Barks, Bones, and Biscuits, where the friendly owner and healthy, hand-made doggy delicacies will delight even the most discerning pups. If you overdo it, keep heading west to the 125-acre Idlewild Road Park at the edge of town. Another nature trail and disc golf course in a serene setting await.

The Weddington Optimists Park is about 15 miles from Unionville, between Wesley Chapel and Weddington and just a skip and hop from Wesley Chapel Village Commons. This park was funded by citizens of the community, dog lovers we suspect. The 52-acre grounds have a paved walking trail with human fitness stations, so you can work up a sweat even if your puppy partner isn't in the mood to run. If it's the other way around, though, cross the street to the Dogwood Park and Dog Park. This pretty 22-acre park has natural surface trails and, more importantly, fenced off-leash dog runs for both small and large furry friends. If you want to relax while they play, you can even grab a book at the Little Free Library, a service of the Waxhaw Public Library.
