“Personal care for your dog”

I am an experienced pet owner who lives with 3 cats. I love to walk and can keep up with all dogs. I have dealt with dogs of all ages and energy levels. I give the dogs all the attention they deserve and make sure they have plenty of sniffs to get them through the rest of the day. In these times of COVID-19 know that I take many precautions. I wash my hands with soap and water before leaving my house. I limit my time in your home. I sanitize my hands when I return to my car.

Dog Walking in Peninsula

Peninsula is a small village in Summit County, Ohio with a population of just over 500 people. Also part of the Akron metropolitan area, Peninsula offers the best of small-town living along with the convenient amenities of a big city. Nestled between Akron and Cleveland, Peninsula is just a short drive away from anything you'll ever need. But you'll love staying right in Peninsula, too, enjoying the scenic river that runs through town, strolling through the tree-lined streets or taking a walk through the forest. If you're a dog owner, you'll appreciate that you can access a great trail system from Peninsula, and you're always just a quick drive from an off-leash dog park. 

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is in northern Peninsula, and this gorgeous natural area is a refuge for countless species of plants and wildlife. There are more than 110 miles of dog-friendly hiking trails in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, so you and your dog can explore the park together as long as they're on a leash. Don't forget to bring extra water and a bowl for your pooch along the way, because it gets very hot in the park. You and your dog will have so much fun partaking in all of the dog-friendly activities in and around Peninsula!

If you're looking for a dog-friendly activity in Peninsula that's a little less grueling than a hike, check out the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail. This 81-mile trail is ideal for dog walking -- you can access 20 miles of the trail through the national park, but there are also other access points throughout Peninsula. The trail closely follows a historic canal that was used for mules pulling boats between 1827 to 1913. The trail's surface varies from boardwalk to asphalt and crushed stone, and along your journey, you and your leashed dog will pass beautiful scenery, historical sites, national parks, and communities.
