“You can't put a price on peace of mind!”

I have been walking and sitting pets in the Dayton area for about two years, and I have never had a major incident! I think what makes me a good walker is my level of patience and my calm demeanor. I maintain the position of pack leader, while still having fun. I have had experience with dogs of all sizes and ages, and even other furry/scaley friends! There's no pet I can't handle. I understand that not everyone has the time or ability to walk their dog every day, so I'm here to help!

“Tell your dog I said hi!”

Hello! I’m a recent college grad who is looking to love on your pet! I’ve been dog walking and dog sitting for friends and family and have spent several hours volunteering at animal shelters over the past four years. I have had a few dogs as family pets in the past, but I don’t currently own a dog, so I gladly take up any opportunity to spend time with any and all dogs. Hopefully your furry friend will be one of them!

Dog Walking in Dayton

A city with glittering golden lights by night and artistic, graceful fountains by day, Dayton is certainly eye catching. This city is perfect for the metro pet-owner with plenty of places to walk and see downtown.

If you are planning a stay in Dayton, why not try the Drury Inn and Suites in the north side of downtown? They have fresh, modern rooms that, of course, are pet-friendly! You and your best friend can stay in a spacious, stylish, suite at a fairly affordable price. The ultimate time to go is, of course, the tail end of the summer. If you stay then, you will be right in time to catch the annual Doggie Dash and Splash event! This is every Labrador, Spaniel, and Newfoundland's dream event! This day is filled with puppy pools, splash zones, contests, and vendors catered specifically to your pet needs. What a way to beat the heat!

However, if a city break is what you need, there is a beautiful place just out of town. Sycamore State Park works great for the horsie types. This park has close to 2,500 acres of trails, lakes, and beautiful sights to be seen. You can of course bring your pup along too, just keep them on a lead for safety! To top off the day, pitch a tent or roll in the RV for a weekend in nature. Dayton is a face-paced city for busy pet lovers. There is always something new and exciting happening for you and your furry friends!

The Montgomery County Bark Park is the perfect park to take your dog to if you’re looking for a good workout. This huge dog park is located on top of a hill, so you and Fido can get a nice hike in while you’re there. Water fountains are located outside the park so the two of you can stay hydrated, and there is a separate area in the park with agility equipment for your dog to play on. If you and your dog just want to walk around the park, that’s no problem either since there is a large paved path that winds through the entire park.
