“I'll treat your pups like my own!”

Hello, I'm Katrina! I have always had a love for animals. I believe dogs are part of the family and should be treated that way! When your pup is with me, they will get the same love and attention I'd give to my own. I currently have 2 rescues; Maia, a black lab mix and Dexter, a beagle. I am comfortable with dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. I love that I am able to incorporate my love of dogs into a job that I can be excited about. I can't wait to meet your pup!

I’ve been in love with dogs my whole life, and I’ve rescued quite a few. I’ve gotten to be very good at calming and distracting dogs who get a little bit nervous or unsteady with others or their surroundings. I do my best to know the moves a dog might make before they make them, along with sensing their mood in certain situations so that I’ll always be ready for anything. The most important thing is to know that both you & your best friend can always feel secure in knowing they are safe with me.

I have been a volunteer for the Lakewood Animal Shelter since 2012 and have walked and dog sat for many friends over the years. I enjoy getting to know a dog, as they all have their own unique and intelligent personalities (like people). It's a refreshing to spend time with dogs with their enthusiasm and simple outlook on life. I walk and run daily clocking anywhere from 15 to 40+ miles per week. I would enjoy having a companion for some of those miles.

“Personal care for your dog”

I am an experienced pet care giver who lives with 3 cats. I love being around all types of dogs. I have dealt with high and low energy dogs; dogs that pull and dogs that need coaxing. My goal is to give you peace of mind and your fur baby attention and extra love. I enjoy having the dog show me their favorite walk. My preference is to find a quiet tree lined street with lots of smells. I sanitize my hands before and after every walk. Time in the house is limited.

Dog Walking in Northfield

The village of Northfield is in Summit County, Ohio, and southeast of Cleveland. Covering just over a mile square, this place may be small, but is a pawsome place to visit with your dog. There is one veterinary clinic in town, and animal hospitals are available in nearby cities in case your pup runs into any difficulties.

For a walk close to town, head to Pitluck Preserve and take a wander along the stream to see how many wildflowers you can spot. Also through this area is the Bike and Hike Trail, one of the 1,600 rail-trails dotted throughout the country. Your dog will need to stay leashed in both of these areas, and make sure you clean up after him. 

Northfield has a couple of great food places in town that welcome dogs at their outdoor tables. Wing Warehouse not only serves its namesake, but a delicious selection of burgers, wraps, salads and a seasonal menu for added variety. Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt offers the perfect sweet indulgence, and with such a wide choice of flavours, you might need to visit twice! Peanut butter and jelly, mint, coffee, maple walnut, banana and pecan, and topped off with a decadent chocolate sauce- what’s not to love!

Northfield is a lovely little place and the gateway to so many other pup-friendly activities in the area. You and your dog are sure to have a great stay.

History buffs and nature lovers alike will enjoy exploring the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, with the historic Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail running through it. This trail is a restored section of the canal's original towpath and is a fascinating look into times gone past. Brandywine Gorge Trails is another must-do in this area, with the falls reaching 65-feet at peak season! There is plenty more to see here, and plenty more trails to explore along the river. As always when venturing out into the forest, pack plenty of water, doggie waste bags, and keep your pup on the lead to protect both him and the native flora and fauna. This is a fantastic place to visit – you are guaranteed to both come back refreshed and invigorated.

Buckeye Trails in the Bedford Reservation, just above Northfield in Bedford, is a seriously amazing place to go for a hike with your pup. Covering 2,200 acres, Bedford Reservation is home to an impressive forest, a spectacular waterfall, and an array of wildflowers you have to see to believe. The terrain can be quite rugged here, so dress accordingly and take your water and poochie drinking bowl. Your dog will love checking out the trails with you, but you will need to keep him on a lead. There are picnic areas with toilet facilities dotted around the reserve, and some extraordinary vistas to be viewed from the overlooks.

In neighbouring Bedford, there is a pup-tastic doggie space in Liberty Park known as the Twinsburg Dog Park. There are two fenced areas to accommodate pups of all sizes, and a couple of drinking bowls available, however you will need to bring your own water. Your dog will love a game of frisbee or catch on the grassed area, and the chance to mingle with other pups who are out for a play. While in Liberty Park, pop your pet back on the lead and check out the walking trails in the area. There are picnic tables and bathroom facilities here as well, perfect for a great family day out!

Bow Wow Beach in Stow, just 14 miles from Northfield, is a free dog park that your pup is going to love visiting. The park gets its name from the 5-acre lake where Fido can swim and splash to his heart’s content. The total area of the park is 7.5 acres, and is fenced to keep your dog safe. Plenty of shade is on offer for you too, as well as grassed areas to enjoy a game of fetch together. Doggie waste bags are provided, as is a wash basin for rinsing down your playful pet afterwards. Also connected throughout this area is the Bike and Hike Trail, one of the 1,600 rail-trails supported by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. You will need to keep your dog on the lead here, but it is well worth checking out.
