“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 West Columbia

Located just outside South Carolina’s state capital, West Columbia has the small town feel with the big city luxuries. Just five minutes away from the city of Columbia, there’s always plenty to do with your pet, whether you want to take him for a walk or make sure he’s in good health at one of the many veterinarian clinics. West Columbia is situated on the Congaree River, and there’s no better place to go for a walk with your pooch than the aptly named Congaree Riverwalk. Many restaurants in West Columbia and the nearby capital have patio options, so your dog can join you while you grab a bite to eat. Brain Freeze, LLC is a locally-owned ice cream parlor where your dog can join you; you might want to grab him a small cup of vanilla. Want to go shopping? No problem; many stores don’t think twice about letting a leashed dog inside. Whether you want to explore the beautiful Congaree River, grab some food, or get in some retail therapy, West Columbia will welcome both you and your dog!
