“Truly love all animals”

I grew up around all types/temperaments/sizes of dogs and have always had an affinity and love for all animals. I have my bachelors in Animal Science. My compassion in life is animals, especially dogs. I love getting to know a dog’s unique personality, their quirks and what makes them happy. I consider myself to be responsible, honest, respectful, and considerate. My dogs are my babies so I know how important your dogs are to you, and I always treat/love every dog I meet like my own babies!

Hello! My name is Anita Keene. I've grown up around dogs my entire life. I've been the proud owner of two dogs since I've been out on my own. My current dog is a Pekingese. I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education, however; 5 years ago our family moved to South Carolina and my preschool in Michigan is now managed by a director. I'm still the owner and manage the preschool, but the day to day stuff is her responsibility. I've got some free time on my hands and I love to walk (walk my dog everyday) and I love dogs. What a great opportunity it is to be a Wag Walker- combining both things I LOVE! Frequently, I've had the pleasure of taking care of family member's dogs while they've been away on trips. I'm excited for the chance to become friends with your dogs, as well!

“Help is on it’s way! Arf”

Hi! My name is Martha. My dog passed away last year and it broke my heart in pieces. I started caring for dogs when my children said that maybe it will fill a voId. I’ve been caring for dogs on a referral basis and now want to expand. I’m very athletic, so no problem with exercise. I’m patient and can adapt to most any situation. Also, I probably should have been a dog photographer because I will send you as many photos as you would like! I do look forward to meeting all of you!

Dog Walking in Forest Acres

Forest Acres, a city in Richland County, South Carolina, is a small but welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the nearby city of Columbia. It’s easy to see why a dog lover would spend their time in this locale, considering the nearby parks and restaurants in Columbia that your pup will be welcome to enjoy with you. 

The area is beautiful, perhaps the most scenic in the entirety of South Carolina -- and after all, they say nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina! The weather is certainly worth noting, relatively warm all year aside from the cold winter winds. During the summer and spring, it will be plenty warm for you to enjoy the dog parks in the area. 

You’d be doggone crazy to miss Columbia Dog Park, the most beautiful location for you to enjoy with your canine companion. Open twenty-four hours, your dog is free to wander off-leash in this vast, fenced-in area with a beautiful pond for your pup to tiptoe their paws into. All you’ll need to bring is plenty of clean drinking water, as well as doggy waste bags to clean up any messes your doggo may make. Besides that, bring yourself and your dog and you’re sure to have a blast!

Sesquicentennial State Park is situated in the Sandhills region of the Carolinas, surrounding a thirty-acre lake that contains immaculate scenery. While there are dozens of trails to trek down with your canine companion in the main park, you’ll be more interested in the dog park area. The dog park consists of two fenced-in acres where your dog is welcome to dart around off-leash. You’ll need to bring plenty of clean drinking water, as well as doggy waste bags to dispose of off-site. It’s no question that you’ll want to keep this beautiful scenery clean!

If you’re looking for another place for your pup pal to enjoy some off-leash fun, make your way to Lake Carolina, where you will find Lake Carolina Dog Park. Although this park requires an annual pass, don’t let that get in the way of your good time with your canine companion! Just pay the yearly fee, and bring plenty of water to keep your wily woofer’s whistle wet. You’ll also need to bring plenty of doggy waste bags to be disposed of off-site. All you’ll need to bring is your pup and a fun toy, like a frisbee, to toss around!

Although Emily Douglas Dog Park lacks separate areas for small and large dogs, don’t let that scare you off. The dogs at this park are especially friendly, as well as their owners. Let your pup free among their canine companions, and enjoy your latest app addiction on your cell phone while you relax on the nearest bench. There are plenty of shady spots to enjoy, so just settle in where you’re most comfortable. You’ll need to bring plenty of clean drinking water, as well as doggy waste bags, but that certainly won’t stop you from having a good time, will it?

For a park that separates small and large dogs, make your way to NOMA Bark Park, a 1.5-acre dog park where you’ll find plenty of shady spots and even dog fountains for your pup pal to enjoy. You may need to bring a bowl to collect water for your pup to drink, and you’ll need to make use of the doggy waste stations scattered across the park. Once you see this beautiful park, you’ll understand why the locals want to keep it nice and tidy. Do you and your doggie’s part to keep it plenty clean as well!

Last but not least by any means, make your way over to Five Points, a scenic Columbia neighborhood which will make you come for the food, and stay for the people. One such delectable restaurant is known as Yesterdays, which makes sense because you'll wish that you and your pup had discovered it days ago! Dogs are not just welcome at this cozy little tavern, but they are encouraged! There are several outdoor tables to choose from, and you can enjoy the company of any of the other patrons -- or, just let your pup keep you company! You can't beat man's best friend!
