Hello! My name is Amanda Baalke! I'm 33 years old and live in the Southwest school district in the Greensboro/High Point area. I have always had a connection with animals, especially dogs. Starting as a child, I volunteered at my local humane society. I would go in the morning and spend the whole day walking as many dogs as I could. I was always overwhelmed by the love and joy I could see on the dog's faces. That has always been, and still is, my "happy place." I currently have a 2 year old male Siberian Husky. My goal is to become a foster home for special-needs dogs. I love, respect, and appreciate dogs of all sized and breeds. Every pup deserves love and compassion. I have taken classes from a certified dog trainer to learn the mannerisms and body-language of dogs. I also learned how to quickly and appropriately respond to any situation that we may encounter during our walks. I am looking forward to meeting your sweet pup soon!

I might have been a dog in my past life:) I grew up with dogs/absolutely love them to death and they love me. Today I work from home and watch my roommates dog China on a regular basis. We go on walks, hikes in the mountains and try new dog parks all the time. She likes to chase squirrels/her tennis ball and meet new doggie friends. I would eventually like to start my own dog walking/sitting business so I thought this would be a great start!

Bailey Park is the perfect spot for a downtown pup to burn off some energy. Dogs who don’t do well off-leash should be kept on it, as the dog area of this neighborhood park is not entirely fenced. Finding a playmate is one way to keep your pup safely in the off-leash zone. You can tell you’re in the right spot when you find doggie bags on the fences! In addition to a small off leash area, Bailey Park has walking paths and plenty of interest in other areas of the park, making it a perfect spot to stop on a trip through downtown Winston Salem.

Miller Park is a great spot to relax with your dog without leaving the city. Dogs love the looped walking trails, designed to give the illusion that you’re out in the woods, not deep in the city. Though the trails aren’t long, there are enough to choose from to give your leashed dog a real walk. Low energy dogs will appreciate that there are plenty of spaces to relax along the paths as well! If you crave a longer walk than Admore/Hanes can give you, head to Great Outdoor Provision Company. This dog-friendly outdoors company allows your dog to join you in picking out gear for your next great adventure.

The Salem College neighborhood in Winston Salem is home to Washington Park, and within Washington Park is Washington Dog Park. This fully fenced dog park is one combined space, meaning that large and small dogs have to learn to get along. This park provides doggie bags and drinking fountains to care for your dog’s needs. It’s perfect for summer heat! When you’re tired of the off leash zone, or if your dog needs playmates of the same size, leash up and head into the rest of the public park. Walking trails and picnic areas make the whole park a great location to explore.

Cityview has a great view of Salem Lake as well as the city itself. That’s where you’ll find Salem Lake Park, a large outdoor area with beautiful walking paths down to the water. The park is open year round, offering great views of a summer and winter lake. Dogs have to remain leashed in the park, but with so much to see, do, and smell, it’s still a great place to go. The walking paths are well-maintained, and very popular with locals and residents of other Winston Salem residents as. Your dog will have plenty of people watching to do, and may meet other dogs on the park’s paths!
