“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!

My name is Bria, my friends would refer to me as the Animal Enthusiast. From a young age, I have always been drawn to nature, insects, and of course, animals! Growing up, I was fortunate enough to experience camping, pet store shadowing, and volunteer work at local animal shelters.

I cannot wait to meet your babies, and I hope we will develop lasting friendships on our fun walks!

Dog Walking in Kettering

Kettering is the largest suburb of the city of Dayton in Ohio. The metropolitan area was once home to the inventor Charles F. Kettering, whom the city got its name, and who invented the world's first aerial missile. Nowadays the area hasn't had many inventions, but has made over 284 outdoor acres for humans and pups living in the city to enjoy. And with eight veterinarians, you can feel safe exploring all of them with your pup.

The most popular place for humans and their pups is the Hills & Dales MetroPark, a 63-acre area filled with rolling hills, open space, dense forests, and scenic creeks. The natural areas are dog-friendly to leashed pups with over 5 miles of paved and dirt trails, a pond for fishing and swimming, picnic shelters and pavilion, and lots of space to run around and play. Additional features include clean-up stations, water fountains, benches, and nighttime lights.

Indian Riffle Park is another spot perfect for a pleasant walk with Fido. The area includes over 2.5 miles of paved trail that roam through the open spaces and thick forests throughout the park. Dogs must remain on a leash, but can also go into the picnic, barbeque and pavilion areas with access to water fountains, clean-up stations, and benches.

The bustling suburb of Kettering is always expanding its parks to include more dog-friendly and human-friendly activities for all its residents.
