    “Let me be your pups play date when you can't!!”

    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!!

    Hello! My name is Kristin, and I am excited to give your dog the happiness he or she is looking forward to on every walk, stay, or check-in. I began walking, running, training, and pet sitting dogs for family and friends and have had professional clients now for ten years. My passion for animals has led me to become a Veterinary Technician, and I could not have chosen a more rewarding career. In my spare time I love taking my German Shepherds on hikes or walks near the lake and playing fetch.

    “Proud pet mom and aunt to your fur babies!”

    Hi, I am an outgoing animal lover! I will take care of your dog and make sure they get the awesome walk that they deserve. They will be able to stretch their fluffy little legs and get some time out, and I’ll keep them happy and feeling loved until you see them again. I grew up with dogs. I have helped our family dog give birth and helped her when she nursed as well. I am trustworthy and have been trusted not only to dog walk in the past but to also dog sit. You will have nothing to worry about.

    Hi! My name is Michelle. My very first dog was a Yorkie. I’ve owned a Husky, Boxer, American Pit Terrier, and I currently care for my fiancé’s lab-mixed. I’ve worked in PetSmart, I’ve temporarily taken in lost dogs until I was able to either teunite them with their owner or properly place them, I’ve helped dogs get out abusive situations, and I’ve dog-sitted as well. I will make sure that our walks aren’t just walks, but an enjoyable and fun walks for your dog. I’m excited and can’t wait to meet your furry babies, I believe every dog has their own unique personality.

    Hi, I'm Riley! I've grown up caring and walking dogs my whole life as I've had at least one dog in my house since I was born. I'm used to taking care of large, small, high energy, and even arthritic dogs. I even used to volunteer at a local pet shelter back home in South Carolina. I would love to meet your best friend and give them the walk and attention they need!

    “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!

    Sarah is awesome! I have never had such a good walker and was good with my dogs. She also has been helping me train my dog that loves squirrels to not chase them. I don t know what I would ve done without her. She also most importantly is more dependable than any dog walker I have had. She shows up and she shows up on time! Go Sarah!

    Best Dog Friendly Neighborhoods in Rion

    Population DensityPopulation Density
    5,749 per sq. mi.

    Shandon

    4848

    Established as a town in 1904, the Columbia neighborhood of Shandon offers leafy shade and sidewalks through a labyrinth of homes dating from the early 20th century. For dogs who don’t care about history, though, try Pupcakes Pet Boutique and Bakery, with a wide variety of healthy and decadent doggy treats for sale. They’ll even host birthday “pawties” for your fur babies. Work off the calories at Emily Douglas Park, particularly the off-leash dog park! It has the distinction of being one of Columbia’s few free public dog parks. The leash-required areas of the park also include an amphitheater and lawn perfect for lounging around.

    Jenkinsville

    3636

    For a taste of nature in an unusually quiet setting, consider Lake Monticello Park in Jenkinsville, a mere 12 miles northeast of Rion. No development is allowed on the lake, which means no houses: you can really get your bark on. Water-skiing or jet-skiing are also no-nos, so dogs who fear loud noises have a peaceful play-spot. The water level can shift up to 5 feet due to the lake’s hydroelectric dam, so keep an eye on swimming dogs. The park offers a fishing pier and sports fields along with a one-mile paved trail, so you have a range of places to walk or soak up the sun. Best of all, Lake Monticello Park is completely free! Nearby is the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station Nature Trail (if the name doesn’t scare you off) offering an additional 1.5 miles of hiking.

    Dreher Island

    Population DensityPopulation Density

    Dreher Island

    2424

    Dreher Island State Park in Prosperity is just over 30 miles from Rion but worth every barking inch. Spread out over three islands nestled inside Lake Murray, the park has three different recreational trails to match any pup's stamina, from the 0.3-mile Nature Trail to the 2.1-mile Little Gap Trail. Dogs can’t stay overnight at the lakeside villas but are welcome on leash in the park’s other outdoor areas. Bonus: You can turn any cove into your own personal beach, as swimming is permitted throughout the park’s extensive shoreline (although always at your own risk).

    Irmo City Center

    1212
    Population DensityPopulation Density
    1,800 per sq. mi.

    Irmo City Center

    1212

    A Columbia suburb near the lake, Irmo brings together the best of town and country less than 30 miles from Rion. There are 3 dog-friendly restaurants, including carnivore’s paradise Carolina Wings. From the pup perspective, though, Irmo is all about its free and beautiful city parks. Irmo Town Park has a small amphitheater: stage your own mini dog show. Just a few blocks away, Irmo Community Park has walking trails surrounded by a 0.4-mile loop, as well as grassy lawns, plenty of trees, and good (human) restrooms. Irmo Veterans Park is another good pick for athletes: pups get their workout on a walking trail featuring built-in human exercise stations along the way. Dogs make great spotters!  

    Chapin City Center

    Population DensityPopulation Density
    350 per sq. mi.

    Chapin City Center

    When your pup is ready for a taste of civilization but Columbia's hustle and bustle aren't his scene, consider Chapin, about 25 miles from Rion. The hub of this bustling community near the lake has 9 different patio dining options for you and your furry family. For gearing up, there's the specialty coffee at Wired Goat Cafe. For winding down, try the Tipsy Toad Tavern. Are they kidding with these names? Frayed Knot (which is also a dog-friendly bar and grill). The best real estate in town, though, is the enormous waterfront covered deck at Rusty Anchor Restaurant. You'll need to earn those calories, but Crooked Creek Park has a 2 miles of walking trails where leashed dogs are welcome, and even a 27-hole disc golf course.
