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'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!

Dog Walking in Shaker Heights

When you visit the lovely city of Shaker Heights, you'll see over a hundred years of experience in residential care and older businesses. The area is a suburban town of Cleveland, and has more than 88% of its area listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Historically, the town has also been a leading example of man's best friend, with tons of places to walk and play with Fido, including 1 dedicated animal hospital.

The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes is one of the best places to view the natural areas of the city. Around the nature center is a preserve with marshland and bogs, dense trees, and open fields. The center hosts two 2-mile long trails that wind through the area, the Stearns Trail and the All People's Trail. Dogs are welcome only on the All People's Trail, where they can bird watch, explore, and sightsee on an all-boardwalk, elevated trail. Attached to the trail is a ramp that lets visitors explore the trail up close, with other amenities like water fountains and benches.

Horseshoe Lake Park is a dog-friendly park that allows humans and pups to experience the lake up close. Along the water is a nice open field with trimmed grass, paved trails, and a picnic area. Leashed pups can enjoy these features and others, including a playground, a natural beach, a boat ramp, a pavilion, restrooms, clean-up stations, water fountains, and shaded sitting areas.

Whether you and Fido are taking a walk or enjoying a day on the beach, Shaker Heights has plenty of dog-friendly areas for you and your best friend.
