“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!

Dog Walking in Hopkins

Hopkins is a South Carolinian community in Richland County, located 11 miles southeast of downtown Columbia. Dog-friendly Hopkins has one animal clinic catering to the needs of its canine guests and residents, so you can enjoy a worry-free stay in town with your pup.

Take Fido for his daily walkies at Hopkins Park! This community park features a paved walking path that welcomes leashed dogs, as well as a recreation center, playground, swimming pool, and athletic fields. Hopkins Park is home to summer camps, ball games, and the annual Lower Richland Sweet Potato Festival, so you and Fido will most likely encounter kids and families enjoying their favorite recreational activities while you're there.

A popular destination among residents who like to get outside and get active is the Caughman Road Park that has provided a safe place for physical activity for over 20 years. Featuring an oak-lined entrance, this 20-acre park houses multi-use athletic fields, tennis courts, two large picnic shelters, and a walking trail. The 0.4-mile, out-and-back trail offers an easy walk around the ball field area of Caughman Road Park, and Fido is allowed to use the trail as long as he stays leashed.

Hop over to Hopkins with your pooch to experience some old fashioned Southern hospitality!

With wooded grassy areas and a paved walking trail, Woodland Park in neighboring Columbia is a nice place to spend a beautiful afternoon with your pooch.
