I have loved animals ever since I can remember. Anytime I see an animal I just have to say hi! I am a dog (and horse and cat) mom myself, so I understand that sometimes our schedules don’t always match the needs of our fur babies. I want to put other pet parents minds at ease knowing their babies will be well taken care of with me! I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes/breeds and am also comfortable administering medicine if necessary.

I'm a dedicated, compassionate lover of dogs! I have experience training my own dog (Lab/Golden mix) from 7 weeks. I've worked at a Humane Society and know how to give medication and shots, how to identify pain, notice signs of aggression, and apply first aid. I have experience caring for a wide variety of dogs: A older Shepherd with arthritis, a rambunctious Lab learning to be a service dog, a Maltese with behavioral issues, etc. I'm available for walks, sitting, or boarding. If your dog boards with me, they will have 16 acres of woodland for hiking and adventures. Currently, my good boy is staying with his other parent out of state. I would love to give the love I have for him to your pup!

Dog Walking in Anderson

Anderson is, as some might guess, a city in Anderson County, South Carolina that is nicknamed by locals and visitors alike, the “Friendliest City in South Carolina.” The name Anderson came from Revolutionary War hero, Robert Anderson. Being the friendliest city in the state may explain why there are almost 27,000 people and 6,000 dogs living there. With that many dogs, you know there are plenty of things you and Fido can do while you are in Anderson.

The Dog Park on East Whitner has separate small and large dog sections with exercise stations and obstacle courses in each one. There are also many different types of trees, water fountains for people and dogs, sculptures, benches, holding pens, walking paths, and 40 parking spaces for your convenience.

Happy Tails Dog Park on Riverside Court is a unique park because it is indoors so you do not have to worry about the weather or bugs. There is a huge 13,000 square-foot rubberized concrete floor with ten different doggy playground equipment pieces. They also have self-serve dog sinks for bathing if Fido gets dirty while playing.

Pelham Mill Dog Park on East Phillips Road has 13 acres of dog play toys, agility course, benches, water, dog poo bags, a sand run, and separate areas for large and small dogs. This is a lot of space to play and friendly dogs to play with and people to talk with.

Anderson Downtown Dog Park is just waiting for a visit from your furry friend. Bring her over and let her get rid of some extra energy. She’ll love getting to know the other neighborhood pups as she romps and plays. The three acre park has separate areas for large and small dogs, so those with shorter legs can enjoy the park at their own speed. Throw a ball for a game of fetch, or just let her cruise around the park on her own. When she’s ready to go, clip her leash on and walk down the nearby Main Street to head over to Carolina Wren Park. This local gathering spot is bound to have something fun going on.

Clip on your pup’s leash and take a trip over to Cater Lake Park. Situated in the Anderson U and Main Street area, this pawsome park has plenty of room for your furry friend to explore. Take some laps around the paved walking path to exercise your canine pal.  Enjoy the views of the lake before finding a tree to sit under for some afternoon R and R. There are also picnic tables and grills available, so go ahead and bring your dinner. After your walk, head over to Molly and Me Dog Bakery and Grooming and let your dog choose a treat.

Nothing beats spending some quality time at the park with your four legged friend. So pack up your pooch and visit D.B. Walker Park in the Toxaway neighborhood. Your pup will love the chance to be outside in the sunshine and fresh air.  Let your pal stretch out her four legs as you do some laps around the walking path. She might work up a sweat, so be sure to bring her plenty of fresh water.  Bring her leash, since pets need to be tethered in this park. No bones about it, your fur baby will enjoy being at your side while getting some exercise.

Linley Park is a puptastic location for a walk with your favorite furry friend. This park is situated in the Bleckley Street and Mauldin Street neighborhood and is split into two parcels. The upper park is a grassy expanse with some shade trees and the Linley Park Trail. The lower park has a couple baseball fields and a playground. Both provide ample room for your pup to explore. He can sniff the new terrain while soaking up some sun. The walking path in the lower park winds through some shrubbery and includes a bridge over Whitner Creek. Your pup will be one happy hound after a trip to this park!

Head over to Whitehall Park for some pawsome fun in the sun! The fields in this park are occasionally used for hot air balloon launches and concerts, so they are quite large. Check the schedule if your pup isn’t into crowds or loud noises. Your buddy will love exploring the expansive grassy areas. He’ll be tuckered out in no time. If he isn’t, head north to the Anderson Sports & Entertainment Center. With 337 acres of green space, this place can definitely tucker out your best bud. Located on the grounds is a playground, a sports center, an amphitheater, and hundreds of acres of open space to explore. The Chris Taylor Memorial Park is also located inside the center, built in commemoration of a local fallen police officer. The duck pond here can provide lots of entertainment for your pup, as can the walking track.
