Hello, my name is Stacee. I’m a Registered Nurse. My goal is to provide safe loving services/care to your fur baby as you would and make all Doggie hoomans more comfortable leaving them in the care of a stranger. My mission statement is “Making a difference one plus pup(s) at a time.” I have a 4 year mini golden doodle named Louie. I couldn’t imagine life without him! He has brought so much joy to my life.

“Life mission: Meet as many dogs as I can!”
My name is Deanna and I've been an animal lover all my life! I've fostered for our local Humane Society and unfortunately for my husband, two of those fosters have been foster 'fails' - meaning I never gave them back! ;) My current pups are Marvin (a giant lab/shephard mix) and Jethro (a one-eye bluetick coonhound). I can't wait to meet your sweet pup as well!

Dog Walking in Marion
The city of Marion is 50 miles from Columbus, and is a pretty busy place compared to the surrounding area. The areas surrounding Marion are rural and made up of farmland, with Marion offering a bustling metropolitan town and large manufacturing hub for the region. The town is also pretty busy in dog activity, with lots of daily dog walkers and dog-friendly places to take Fido to. And with four veterinarians, Marion pups are well taken care of!
The best place to take Fido in the city is to the Kaufman Dog Park, a fenced-in dog park with a well-maintained space and shaded sitting areas. The park has separate areas for larger and smaller pups, double-gated entrances, and paved walkways. Additional features include doggy-sized water fountains, benches, clean-up stations, and trash bins. The park is in the larger park of Kennedy Park, which is also dog-friendly, but requires for pups to be on a leash outside of the dog park.
Lincoln Park is another popular dog-friendly park in the town that has over 30 acres of recreational land. There are 12 fenced-in baseball fields, soccer fields, and enclosed tennis courts. The park also has paved walkways and open space surrounded by dense trees, with access to water fountains, restrooms, a pavilion, trash bins, and nighttime lights.
Marion continues to shine when it comes to providing parks for pups and has other dog-friendly parks, like Marion Tallgrass Trail and Quarry Park.
Best Dog Neighborhoods in Marion
North Marion is a peaceful neighborhood mostly taken up by residential homes and farmland. The Brandy Winfield Park has a large square area of open space, with large trees along the edges, a playground, a pavilion, swingsets, and a basketball court. The park has water fountains and trash bins, and does not require dogs to be on a leash. The Martin Luther King Jr. Park is a smaller park inside the neighborhood that requires pups to be on a leash, and offers additional features like a pavilion, clean-up stations, water fountains, and benches. There is also a playground, a basketball court, and restrooms available.
East Marion is a residential neighborhood filled with homes and busy streets, and backed by vast farmland. Garfield Park is the dog-friendly park of choice here, thanks to its forested areas and open space to run around with Fido in. Besides the abundance of space and forested trails, the park also has a fenced-in baseball field, a playground, water fountains, a pavilion, benches, and clean-up stations. The park also connects to a neighborhood trail that does not have a name, but loops around an empty field. The park is made from crushed stone and gravel and is dog-friendly, but you will have to remember to bring water and clean-up bags before using it.
The Flower District of Marion is an open neighborhood, with residential homes and open fields. Some of those open fields belong to McKinley Park, a vast park with open spaces, a paved walkway, and scattered trees throughout the park. With plenty of shade and room to run around, Fido will love coming to the park and will enjoy extra features like a playground, a gazebo, water fountains, benches, and trash bins. Veterans Park is close by and provides even more space to run around and more paved paths to take a stroll on. Both parks require dogs to remain on a leash.
Oakland Heights is a quiet and scenic park in the southwest corner of town that is backed by farmlands and residential homes. Sawyer-Ludwig Park is a rural park, with one large open field and lots of room to play in. There's a grassy trail with trees for shady places to sit, but has few amenities, so you will have to remember to bring water and clean-up bags. The park connects to a recreational park with no name, but is located along White Oaks Road. The park has two fenced-in baseball fields, benches, and picnic tables. Neither park requires dogs to be on a leash while inside.
Harpster is a small town 15 miles from Marion, mostly known for the Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area that's within the town's limits. The wildlife area is protected and offers over 9000 acres of woods, wetlands, and marshes to explore. The area is protected, but is still open to humans and pups to explore, and offers ponds for fishing, piers, a boat launch, trails, and picnic tables throughout the park. Dogs are welcome inside the area as long as they remain on a leash 10 feet or shorter, and can enjoy running in open fields, exploring the trails, or relaxing in the picnic area. You will have to bring your own water and clean-up bags to the park.
