“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!

I am an animal lover. I have a dog who is 17 years old. We've been together since she was 8 weeks old. When I had a 9 to 5 job, I always worried about her being home alone. Now that I'm a dog walker, I can spend time with my dog AND help other hoomans and their fur babies!! I treat every dog as if they were my own and make each walk an adventure for us both. I would love the opportunity to help you with your pets needs!!

Dog Walking in Lexington

Located in the midlands of South Carolina and settled just off of Lake Murray, Lexington brings you the best of both worlds: the hustle and bustle of the city and the slower serenity of the countryside. Only about thirty minutes from the state’s capital city, Columbia, Lexington can be a great place to explore with your dog. On weekends between May and September, the city hosts a farmers market where you can buy delicious local produce, and since it’s outdoors, your dog can join you. Grab your dog’s leash, a swimsuit, and a picnic basket and head to one of the many access points for Lake Murray; a swim is a great way to beat the southern heat. If you’re looking for dog parks, though, or somewhere your dog can join you while you grab a meal, you’ll want to head to the capital, where you’ll have more options.
