“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 Wake Forest

Looking for some places to take Fido in Wake Forest, North Carolina? This little city’s got you covered! Check out Flaherty Dog Park, the city’s off-leash area for pooches. It is approximately two acres large, so there’s plenty of space for you and Fido to play. Flaherty Park is open from dawn to dusk daily. Your dog will be safe in the fenced-in space, with a double-gated entry area to prevent escape. In addition, the park is accessible to those pet owners with physical handicaps. Amenities include a five-foot high fence, water stations, sanitation stations, covered picnic tables, and lots of grassy space!

The town of Wake Forest maintains over a dozen public trails. Leashed pets are welcome in these spaces. A quarter-mile nature trail is located in Flaherty Park – perfect to help Fido cool down and relax after lots of socialization and play in the dog park 

For something a little longer, try the Dunn Creek Greenway, which is about a mile long. It meanders through protected wetland areas and beautiful evergreen forests. Feel free to park at the Smith Creek Soccer Center before accessing the trailhead. For even longer trails, check out the three-miles worth of paths at the E. Carroll Joyner Park.
