Spending time with doggies is one of my very favorite things to do. I love the fun and simplicity of a stroll with a dog, and getting to know each dog’s distinct vibe. Dogs always bring a smile to my face and as corny as it may sound, I want to show them how much I appreciate them!!

“Fun, Energetic Walker”

I love dogs!! I have three shelter dogs and have been dog sitting for friends for a few years now. My favorite past time is to take my dogs to the dog park and try not to fall in love with every dog I meet. I am college bound and am looking for an enjoyable way to earn money for my schooling.

I am a young professional / recent graduate and I absolutely love all kinds of dogs. I really enjoy spending time outdoors and think this would be an amazing side position for me. Not being in a situation that would allow me to adopt my own dog, this is a perfect alternative to spend some quality time with awesome pups!

Hello! I have owned at least one dog for the last 17 years. I have had dogs as small as a Shih Tzu to a Goldendoodle. I recently gave my Goldendoodle to a neighbor who has a door with separation anxiety, our dogs became friends and once we realized how much she helped him I decided to do a good deed. Along with taking care of my own dogs, I have also helped to take care of dogs belonging to family, friends and friends.

Dog Walking in Winnabow

Winnabow is a peaceful farming community about 12 miles southwest of Wilmington. You won't find any big stores here, except for a chain convenience store at a highway intersection—the only one in town. There are no veterinary hospitals in Winnabow, but the nearest one is just a quick, 6-minute drive away in neighboring Leland.

Winnabow does have some places that you can visit with your furry friend, so don't fret! Pawfect for active pups, the 55-acre Town Creek District Park features a 2.5-mile paved walking trail, wooded nature trail, and dog park. The dog park has two separate off-leash areas for large and small canines, plus shaded spots for cooling off. If your pooch doesn't feel like socializing, go for a leashed walk on the pathways that wind past the park's picnic shelter, playgrounds, and athletic fields and courts.

Does your pup love to explore the outdoors? Then head to the Brunswick Nature Park! This park offers 911 acres of undeveloped ecosystems, wetlands, waterways, and vistas that various wildlife call home. Enjoy the miles of walking trails and scenic views with Fido, and don't miss the overlook that provides a puptastic view of the boat launch and dock.

Experience the quieter side of the Brunswick Islands with your pooch in Winnabow!
