“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 South Congaree

A town in Lexington County, South Carolina, South Congaree is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of big city life. It’s easy to see why dog lovers would flock to the area, especially with the scenic views available. It offers small town living, as well as a close-knit community full of friendly individuals. It just happens to do this all while being conveniently located close to larger cities like Columbia, which will be a treat for both you and Fido. 

One such location in Columbia that certainly warrants a visit, for a few hours at least, is the Columbia Dog Park, an off-leash dog park that boasts plenty of grassy places for your pup to run with the new pals they’re sure to make. Clean drinking water is available for the doggies who visit this park, though you may want to bring your collapsible water bowl just to make things easier! You’ll want to be sure your pup’s whistle is wet before they dive into the specially made doggy pond located within the bounds of the park. Wouldn’t want them drinking any dirty pond water! All you’ll need to bring is some doggy waste bags for messy mishaps.

Additionally, there are plenty of benches in shady spots for you to enjoy your latest app addiction while your pup goes and makes some new friends. There are also plenty of doggy waste stations and a place for you to get fresh drinking water for your precious pup pal. All you need to bring is plenty of energy to play!

For your next destination, travel a little ways southwest of White Hall, a friendly little neighborhood in Columbia. You’d be doggone crazy to miss out on the Saluda Shores Barking Lot, a two-acre dog park that allows your canine companion to have plenty of off-leash fun. There are doggy drinking fountains available, as well as plenty of shady spots for you to relax and watch your rowdy rover roam wild! In the hotter months, there are two bone-shaped pools for your dog to dip their toes into, or even make a fun game of splashing around.

If you’re a fan of Mexican food and looking for a tasty bite to eat, you and your pup definitely can’t miss out on a trip to Cantina 76 in Old Shandon. Featuring a temperature-controlled patio where your pup is more than welcome to join you, Cantina 76 serves specialty tacos as well as a selection of alcoholic beverages, although they specialize in the classic margarita. Staff is reviewed as being very canine-friendly, and it’s no question that they’ll fall in love upon seeing your precious pup. Fido will be the star of the show, and you get great food!

If seafood is more your style, mosey on over to University Hill, a beautiful neighborhood that is particularly aptly named, considering the University of South Carolina is just nearby. However, you can’t take your dog to school, so you’d be better off checking out Blue Marlin, a restaurant right outside University Hill that features low country and Louisiana selections to die for… or, at least, play dead for! Your dog will be welcome to join you on the outdoor deck, though you may want to call ahead of time to make a reservation. Your pup will receive plenty of attention from the wait staff -- who can blame them?

Last but certainly not least is the neighborhood of Midtown Downtown -- especially if you’re the type to enjoy a nice pint of beer. Venture your way to Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, where you can choose from a wide selection of craft beers, or any of your favorite classics. There are also plenty of tasty treats to enjoy at this venue, including pizza, salad, and their specialty, green chili pork stew. Your dog can enjoy the sunny day on the outer deck with you, or maybe even a nice sunset. Be sure to grab something tasty to drink -- besides, it’s not drinking alone if your dog is with you!
