“Let me be your dog’s cool aunt!”

I love spending my days laughing with my family, running a business, taking photos, and meeting new places, people, and animals. I have a boxer lab mix who loves chasing leaves and exploring metro parks (her favorites being Blendon Woods and Highbanks). I take the responsibility of caring for your animals as seriously as I take being a dog owner. I am here to ensure that they receive the care and attention they need while you are away.

“Your pup will get lots of love and affection!”

I am a dog lover and recently an empty nester. One of my favorite things to do is to get out into the fresh air with my pup every day. I’d love to help busy dog moms and dad’s by getting their sweet pups out for some fresh air and exercise. I have plenty of time on my hands and lots of flexibility and am available for both short-term and long-term situations.

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!!!

As George Carlin said, life is a series of dogs. I love dogs and have always had a canine in my life, training most of them personally. This was done with positive reinforcement and many times people comment on how well trained they have been. I look forward to giving your dog a great walking experience.

Dog Walking in Homer

The history of Homer, Ohio is one that seems to have been swept away with time. It is known that there were temporary settlements here as early as the 1780s, and that the first permanent settlements may have been established somewhere around 1806. Homer was named after the Greek Poet because the land seemed to have a poetic beauty to it. 

The Native Americans called it the land of the spirits because Homer was the site of several war battles, and is the final resting place of veterans from every major war the United States ever fought as a developing nation -- The Revolutionary War, The War of 1812, and the American-Mexican War. If you're into history, you should bring your dog to explore the graves and cemeteries. If you ask the right people, you will learn the location of the Native American burial grounds in Homer. Always be respectful of these resting places and clean up after your pooch.

Today, Homer is a quiet but historic town that doesn't have very many conventional dog-friendly amenities. If you don't mind taking a thirty-minute drive over to Millersport, you can visit Ohio's oldest state park. Buckeye Lake State Park has fishing, camping, and trails that you can explore with your dog. Don't fur-get to bring all the necessary supplies you'll need for a day at the park!

Everyone loves pizza, even our dogs. That is why Donato's Pizza is pet-friendly! They know that there is nothing better than sharing a slice of edge-to-edge pizza with all your best buddies, even the furry ones. You can get all your favorite toppings or try an original blend. They have wings if you want something with a kick, and salads if you don't. Donato's Pizza is located in the heart of Mount Vernon, just ten miles from Homer. The locals rave about the vegan pizza called Its Greek to Me. If you are looking for something new to try, this is the one to go for!

Bring a camera, too, because this trail has some beautiful spots along the way which make the perfect place for a photo op.
