“Let’s go for a walk!”

Hey! I’m Stephanie and I can’t wait to meet your dog! I’m a full time wedding photographer with my boyfriend, but that leaves me with tons of time during the week to have fun with your nuggets! I volunteered at a shelter as a kid and have loved dogs for as long as I can remember. I have one rescue nugget of my own, but he’s very understanding with my love for all dogs and doesn’t get too jealous. I have experience watching and walking dogs of all shapes and sizes - including a pack of 5 Danes!

Hi my name is Greg Parsley! I'm a lifelong dog lover! I was raised up with dogs, cats, rabbits, reptiles and many other animals! But dogs have always been my favorite! I'm a retired postal worker who lives in Galena, a small town just northeast of Westerville. I don't presently have any dogs or any other animals at this time because my girlfriend and I are Snow Birders. We go down to southern Florida every year for winter (Jan 1st - March 31st). It would be very difficult to have any animals since we're gone for so long each year! But I thought if I could be a dog walker during the nine months each year that I am here, it would be a great way to spend time with dogs even if I can't have one myself! Plus I like to walk anyway! I currently walk for about a mile every morning! I know trust is a hard thing to come by these days! But I promise you that I'll earn your trust! If your like me, you see your dog as a member of the family! And you want someone to treat it as such! I'll give your dog the exercise and TLC that it deserves!!!

Treat Spot to social time at Infirmary Mound Park. With 316 acres, this facility has plenty of space for you to stretch your legs. There are over seven miles of trails, picnic areas, and a 4-acre dog park here. When you're not using the off-leash area, keep your fur baby on a lead.

Alexandria and the surrounding areas offer lots of ways for you to explore the outdoors with your pup.
