“Wanted: Dogs to spoil rotten :)”

Hello! I absolutely love dogs and have experience with all types. I believe dogs have their own distinct personalities and I love getting to know them and learning what makes them happy. All dogs deserve a healthy, fun filled life and having regular exercise is so important in this. I take all precautions to keep dogs safe in all the weather elements, as well as from other animals we may encounter. I use positive reinforcement for good behavior and would love to meet new furry friends!

My name is Jessica, and I grew up in Northeast Ohio with a beautiful beagle named Morgan. I have had a love for dogs all my life, and am lucky enough now to have two pups of my own, Nellie and Rory. They're gorgeous rescue border collie mixes... and you can bet they've taught me a thing or two about how to handle even the most energetic dogs! I love getting to know a new dog's personality through quality time and attentive care. It would be an honor to take your furry best friend on a walk - I know we'd have a great time!

Dog Walking in Canton

Dogs love Canton! Set your tail to WAG, because Canton is mind-blowingly amazing for four-legged friends. Every dog is sure to be taken care of due to the sheer number of vet clinics and animal hospitals in the area--22! Don’t worry that the number means things happen to dogs here--there are just that many dogs here! For proof, go to Angry Barbeque any day of the week and see how many other dogs are outside at the patio tables with your mutt.


Start County Park District-Sippou Lake Park is a mouthful to say, but totally worth a visit. Leashed dogs can enjoy the over dozen miles of hiking trails that range from waterside strolls to hilly hikes. BYOB--bring your own water bowl!


If hiking gets you tired out, head to Country Cones for a blast from the past. This sweet treat shop is all but unchanged since it opened. They serve ice cream, frozen yogurt, and hot dogs and have ample outdoor seating for dogs as well!


Rest up for the night at Staybridge Suites Canton, where up to two pets can stay per room for a pet fee. Canton is packed with treats and activities for your dog pack, whether it’s just one pampered pooch or you have a pack to keep busy.

The Price Park neighborhood is conveniently located off Interstate 77 in North Canton.

Two-legged children also enjoy an outing to the park where they can have fun on the playground equipment or play a game of basketball.  Be sure to bring Fido’s bowl so she can get a drink of cool water from the fountain. If you and your pup need a snack before heading home – take a walk over to Eadies Fish House where you order from a walk-up window so you and your pup can enjoy a meal at the outdoor tables.
