“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!

Dog Walking in Derby

As a very small unincorporated community in central Ohio, little Derby doesn’t have many dog-friendly amenities. Fear not, though: thankfully, Derby is nestled on the outskirts of the state capital of Columbus. And with over a dozen vet clinics in nearby London and Grove City (a mere thirty minutes away), Derby is a pawsitively perfect area for a country-loving pup!

Just eighteen miles north of Derby lies Berliner Sports Park in Columbus, OH. This busy sports park, home to the largest softball complex in the country, is the perfect place to bring your pet if you love sports or have children involved in recreation league. There are many fields open to the public as well as space for walking, picnicking, and playing with your pup!

If you’re not in the mood for a trip to Columbus, take a scenic half-hour drive over to the city of Hilliard to enjoy Spindler Road Dog Park. This spacious park is packed with trails, grassy areas, and water spigots for both humans and fur babies. Right beside the park lies Mudsock Trail, which connects to Frank’s Park and, later, Hilliard Municipal Park. So if you’re looking for a nice long trail walk with man’s best friend, Spindler Road is for you!

While Breck Community Park might not technically be a dog park, there are four separate areas that are fenced in, designed specifically for off-leash play with your pup. Let your dog run around and burn off some of that pent-up energy, all while making some new four-legged fur-riends. Once you’re done in that section of the park, grab Fido’s leash and explore the rest of the park; your dog will thank you.
