Hi there! My name is Sabrina and I have always had a deep passion for animals. I love to work with them in any way that I can and I especially love dogs! I've had my own pup (Gracie Lou) for over 10 years now and I regularly volunteer with animal organizations in my free time. I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of dogs with varying needs over many years. I truly love and appreciate all animals for who they are. I currently am pursuing a career in animal energy healing and take a calm loving approach with all of the animals I see. My ultimate goal is to love your pupper with lots of positive energy and make sure they are safe, happy, and healthy! Some notes on my walking style: I typically use a sturdy leash with an added traffic handle and LED light for added safety, I use eco-friendly compostable poop bags, and all pups will receive some TLC and water at the end of our walk!

“Green-haired friend to every pet!”

I walk and care for dogs / pets professionally for 14+ years. I’ve loved animals all my life! As a kid I would go knock on my neighbors’ doors and ask to walk their dogs for fun, which led me to pet-sitting and dog-walking jobs and volunteering with my local animal shelter. To every service I bring a can do attitude, knowledge gained from a degree in animal behavior and physiology, and first aid certification just in case. I'm fit, friendly, and would love to be your dog's new pal!

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I am a dog lover, not just a dog walker. Growing up an only child I've always enjoyed being able to have that special 4 legged friend to share all my time and affection with. I've had tons of experience with all types of dogs, I've trained puppies and I've rescued older dogs. I've owned chihuahuas, pugs, goldens, labs, pit bulls and I've worked with plenty of other breeds as well. Every dog is different and special and I love them all just the way they are!

Dog Walking in Cornelius

Built during the railroad boom of the 1870's, Cornelius has a rich agricultural heritage, making it no surprise that the city is still home to numerous green areas. With several city parks that welcome on-lead dogs, as well as a highly-rated animal hospital, Cornelius is a city that your pooch will definitely enjoy.

Cornelius is home to a wide range of parks, meaning that you and your pooch will always have somewhere new to explore. Give Tarrybrooke Park a try, with its basketball court, playground, picnic areas, and vast green lawn, or Water Park, which is also home to a large open lawn, as well as several picnic tables and benches.

If your pooch prefers paved pathways, the Veterans Memorial Park has a couple of these, as does Ryland Park, where you will also find a playground and a picnic shelter. Keep in mind that you will need to keep your pooch on a lead at all times in these parks, and don't forget to bring doggie bags with you. Since all of these parks have drinking fountains, you will not need to bring water, but will still need a bottle or a bowl for Fido to drink from.

With so many exciting parks to explore, your dog will no doubt have a tail-wagging time in Cornelius.
