I am currently enrolled at High Point University and love being able to take care of all kinds of dogs. I've been around dogs ever since I was born. I currently have a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Chocolate Lab at home who I love and care for dearly. I am comfortable with being around and handling any breed of dog and always treat them as if they were my own. I have previous experience of taking care of and walking neighbor's dogs and always ensure the dog's needs are met and that they are happy.

Dog Walking in Washington

Washington is a city on the Pamlico River that boasts of being the first city named after George Washington. It has an active waterfront, as well as some dog-friendly green spaces that will bring fun to outdoors-loving folks and their pups! Should your fur-buddy become ill or injured, there are two pawsome veterinarians in Washington.

The Goose Creek State Park is located at the outlet of the Pamlico River to the Sound of the same name, making it a great spot for you and your fur-pup to launch a canoe or kayak to explore the sound, or you can take the canoe trail up Goose Creek. The park also features 8 miles of hiking trails that meander along the river and creeks, through wetlands, swamps, and marshes, partly on a long boardwalk. Parking areas and restrooms dot the landscape, and there are two picnic areas where you can enjoy an al fresco meal with Fido. Park rangers live at the park, and are available for questions about the terrain and the denizens your pup will no doubt flush out on your hike. And if you're interested in an overnight stay, there are primitive and group camping sites as well. Woofderful!

Whether you are a resident of the Washington area or just visiting, you’re sure to find lots to do here with your furry bestie!

This neighborhood is home to two of Greenville’s dog-friendly greenways that connect with each other and the Town Commons in an adjacent neighborhood. The South Tar River Greenway is just over 3 miles long and weaves through forest along the South Tar River from Green Springs Park to the Commons. Surfaced in asphalt, it’s a multi-use trail where you might encounter cyclists and skaters as well as folks fishing in the river. The Green Mill Run Greenway is also about 3 miles and an asphalt multi-use trail that connects with the South Tar River trail at its east end. While there are a couple of street crossings, both trails feature seclusion and quiet in the midst of a bustling city, pawrfect for a stroll with your furry bestie! Arf!
