Hi! My names Megan! I am a passionate animal lover who provides reliable and loving care! I have 3 dogs and 3 cats of my own and enjoy getting to know other dogs with walks and a good game of catch when I’m not working at the animal hospital where I get to pursue my passion of working with animals. I believe animals are soulmates. They show you unconditional love and endless love and never fail to make you smile. Animals remind us to love each other! I can't wait to care for your babies(s) when you need a walk or weekend visits!

Dog Walking in Woodleaf

Woodleaf is a small community in Rowan County, North Carolina. Because it’s small and unincorporated, this community doesn’t have much to offer dog owners other than about fifteen vet clinics within twenty minutes of town.

If you head just twenty minutes southeast of Woodleaf, you’ll reach Salisbury, NC. This town has several great restaurants for you and Fido to enjoy -- one of which is Salsarita’s Fresh Cantina. This casual Mexican restaurant offers traditional favorites like burritos and tacos, but their “quesoritos” and nachos are most popular. 

If you’re in the mood for something different, try Massimo’s Artisan Sandwich Shoppe. This cafe offers everything from smoothies to paninis to croissants as well as several vegetarian options. Both restaurants welcome pups at their dog-friendly outdoor tables.

If you want some exercise, drive twenty-five miles west and you’ll hit the Troutman Rail-Trail. This trail is a former rail line that was transformed by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. This short one-mile trail has a concrete surface, so Fido’s paws will be kept clean and dry. While still in Troutman, check out Kat’s Patch Restaurant after your walk. They offer American fare, ice cream, and -- of course -- pup-friendly tables!

Woodleaf may be small, but it’s certainly not isolated from the many quirky restaurants and dog-friendly trails that western North Carolina has to offer.

Let’s face it: Sometimes our furry friends just don’t want to be social. Skip the fancy restaurant and have a sweet treat, just the two of you! Sonic Drive-In lets you spend some relaxed quality time with your furry loved one without getting out of your car. Listen to your favorite tunes while you eat your ice cream cone. Don’t forget that Sonic Drive-Ins across the nation celebrate holidays, such as National Hot Dog Day, where you can snag your favorite hotdog for a buck! Another thing to keep on your radar: Happy Hour. Times vary depending on the region, but most stores offer a part of the day when drinks are half-off. Just don’t let your pooch sneak too much of your treats.
