Hi! I'm Chelsea and I have been caring for dogs all my life! I grew up owning a dog myself and also helping a family care for show dogs of all sizes and breeds. As a teenager I would walk and be a sitter for friends and family. My love for dogs has given me a dream of owning my own foster home for dogs to get them off the streets or bad situations and into loving families. I can't wait to meet your and your best friend!

“I'm here to love your pups as you would yourself!”

Hi, I'm Hannah! I'm a student at UTC. I have a dog of my own at my hometown. I couldn't bring him with me due to living on campus, so walking dogs between classes will allow me to get the joy of walking dogs again while I'm away from home. I enjoy going on walks, especially with a dog!!

Dog Walking in Colonial Heights

About an hour and a half northeast of Knoxville, Colonial Heights is a small town with a pup-friendly atmosphere. The town features a central location close to a large State Park, and several lakes and rivers. When Fido needs to see a vet, there is one veterinarian clinic in town.

If you are planning to spend time at the Warriors’ Path State Park, the Warriors’ Path Overflow Campground is in Colonial Heights.  There are 40 campsites in this portion of the campground and there are shade trees and picnic tables available. Pups are welcome in the campground, but you need to keep them on a leash.

A fun pooch-friendly place to eat is The Shack located off Route 181 and I-75. They have some of the best BBQ around, and the friendly staff will bring a bowl of water to your pup on the outdoor patio. 

You may also need a pup-friendly place to stay while visiting. Comfort Inn South welcomes pups for an additional fee in one of the pet-friendly rooms.

Whether you live in town and enjoy the rural homes with large yards outside of the city, or you are passing through visiting the local recreation areas, Colonial Heights is a great destination for you and your pup.

Just three minutes from the center of town, the Warriors’ Path State Park was once a Cherokee War and Trading Path. The 950-acre park is now a popular destination for pups and their parents to spend time camping, hiking or fishing. There are several different hiking trails throughout the park, and you and Fido should be able to find one to meet your fitness level. The kids will have a blast on the playground, and you can sit with your pooch on a shaded bench and watch the kids play. You will need to keep Fido on his leash and be sure to clean up and dispose of doggie waste bags in the trash receptacles.

The Southview Community Park features an open grassy field and a walking path. You can stroll with your pooch over to the park for some exercise in the fresh air, and Fido will love chasing a ball or frisbee. There are benches where you can relax and a water spigot to refill your water bottles. The park is usually pretty quiet and serene, so if you are looking for a peaceful spot to spend time with your pup, you will love this small, no-nonsense, neighborhood park. On your way back home, stop by the Hot Dog Hut for some great hot dogs and sweet tea.

Five miles west of town in Blountville, the Bristol/Kingsport KOA is a perfect place to spend your vacation. There are RV and tent camping sites and you and Fido can enjoy some southern hospitality. Your pup will also enjoy the nice dog park located in the campground where Fido can run around and show off his skills on the agility equipment. When you and your pooch are walking through the campground, you will need to keep him on a leash and make sure to keep your doggie waste bags handy. If you get hungry, stop by the KOA Café and order a pizza or BBQ, and sit with your pooch on the outdoor tables or take your food back to your camper.

A fun activity for the family and Fido is the Appalachian Caverns tour about 15 miles from Colonial Heights in the town of Blountville. The tour guides are laid back and love pups, so your pooch can go with you into the cave as long as you keep him on a leash. It is about a 45-minute hiking tour through the cave, and your pup will love the interesting sights and sounds. Just be sure to bring your own doggie waste bags. After you explore the cave, you can also take your pup for a hike along the mountain before heading back home.

When you need a rest, relax on one of the shaded benches and give your pooch some water. Just remember to bring your own doggie waste bags. You may also want to try out Broad Street BBQ where you can order food and relax at the outdoor pup-friendly picnic tables.
