“Dog Time is Happy Time”

Hello! I'm Angie and I‘m the ultimate dog lover. I’ve had dogs my entire life, and spent many hours dog-sitting for others. I currently have three dogs - 100 pound pit mix, 40 pound springer spaniel/lab mix and an 11 pound chihuahua/papillon mix - so I have experience with all different sizes and personalities. I’ve raised them all from puppy stage, so I also have a lot of experience with each doggy stage.

“I treat every dog like my own!”

I’ve been dog walking for a year and a half, I have been dog sitting and boarding for several years. I own 3 dogs myself and have always loved animals. I especially love the bully breeds and big dogs. The dogs that are more difficult are my speciality! Every dog I walk is treated like my own and I take the time to get to know their personality by the time our walk is over. I love my job walking your dogs and can guarantee a worn out pup when we get back!

“Walking your best friend is an honor.”

Hello! I have worked with shelter dogs my whole life and I am very comfortable with their individual quirks. I currently have 3 roommates: a mixed breed, a 3-legged shar-pei, and a once homeless street beagle and they are my best friends. I would do anything for them and I promise to treat yours with the same respect. I am quite familiar with the importance that dogs provide the family and I promise to give your fur baby the same love I give my own. I can’t wait to meet your pup!

Hi, my name is Ben. I live near downtown Columbus and I own a small business in Upper Arlington. I have two dogs, Samwise the basset hound and Bellatrix the pug. I grew up on a small farm in Montana, spending most of my youth working with animals (dogs in particular). I have cared for many dogs in my life and I have pet-sat many others. From pit bulls and german shepherds to papillons and chihuahuas, I know and love all types of dogs. As a small business owner and lifetime dog keeper, I understand the importance of reliability, responsibility, patience, and care for your best friend. I look forward to bringing these traits with me each and every visit. I can't wait to meet your dog!

If I were asked what makes me the most happy in this world, I would answer with "dogs," without hesitation. There's just something about the smile on a dog's face that brings me utter joy. I have been working with dogs professionally since I was 16, and wish I had started sooner. I have dealt with animals under stressful situations: from hyperactivity, to refusal of cooperation/stubbornness, to literal life or death occurrences, so I know that I can handle any personality that gets thrown at me!

Dog Walking in Canal Winchester

Canal Winchester is a suburb of Columbus, located at the convergence of Franklin and Fairfield counties. This medium-populated city is extremely pet-friendly, with 4 vets and 2 pawesome restaurants where you can dine with Fido. The landscape is a wonderful blend of both natural beauty and urban convenience, with Canal Winchester being only 45 minutes outside of Columbus.

Your pup can enjoy some of this natural scenery while taking a trip back in time at Slate Run Park and Historical Farm. This site offers a unique opportunity to get some exercise with your canine companion and learn the rich history of the estate. Here, pups have their own walking trail where they can take a leashed stroll through the farm and gardens. Together you can watch staff, clad in traditional attire, go about daily farm duties — just like they did in 1856. 

If your fur-iend is looking for a trail with a little more difficulty, check out the Canal Winchester Trail. This 4.8-mile asphalt rail-trail is great for walking, but is also popular for biking, skating, and even skiing. The best part? The path is wheelchair accessible, so no one has to miss out!

 Walnut Woods Metro Park in Eastern Groveport is a pawesome place for the whole pack. The facility boasts a special dog section that allows furry guests to socialize off-leash, and even take a swim! Here, canines can safely cool their toe beans or practice their doggy paddle at the fenced-in pond. There is a 3-acre large dog section for visitors over 20 lbs., and a smaller 1-acre section for the more petite crowd. Your pup can zip and zoom freely on the agility equipment, or leash up and check out the multi-use trails! No matter what your pup prefers, he is bound to have a blast here!

Located on Bixby Road, Three Creeks Metro Park offers an experience that the entire family can enjoy (even the bipeds!). The facility is over 400 acres and lies at the confluence of Alum, Big Walnut, and Blacklick Creeks. Pets can romp freely in the off-leash section, which is divided for small and large guests, or go for a leashed adventure on the trails. There even a pawesome little pond where your pooch can take a dip; just make sure you bring a towel! Another perk of this park is that it features access to the Greenway Trail. Pack some lunches so you can sit and stay for a while!

Don’t fret if your buddy gets a little muddy; there are convenient dog wash stations to get him looking right in no time. Frequent visitors give this park four paws up!

Brooksedge Dog Park in Westerville is a large park that really takes care to provide the best experience for their guests. The large expanse is divided into three areas, which are rotated frequently to promote grass growth. Pups can enjoy the climbing structures and tennis balls on-site, or just socialize by the water fountain and catch up with their fur-iends. Don’t worry if you forget your doggy doo bags; there's a dispenser conveniently located in the park! One thing is for sure, pups and owners love this beautiful well-maintained park!
