I am currently enrolled in college to pursue the dream of becoming a Veterinary Technician! With beginners experience, I was a dog walker for the Humane Society of Memphis. There, I was able to get hands on training working with different breeds and gain knowledge of dog walking. With 5 years and counting experience and still having love for animals, another job opportunity provided me with hands on training taking care of dogs! Having two fur babies of my own, I am ready and willing to share my love with every dog I have a chance to meet! I am ready to walk your pooch so lets go!

I love dogs and have surrounded myself with them my whole life, even though my family was allergic. I volunteered at an animal shelter as a dog walker. I loved getting to know so many dogs during my time there. As soon as I could, I adopted a dog of my very own and fell deeper in love with these furry pals. I can't wait to meet your best friend and help you out by with walking them.

Hi, my name is Danielle! I currently have two dogs, a Pitbull Terrier, and a Yorkie! I also grew up raising labs, Corgis, Fiest, and playing with all my neighborhood dogs. You'll never have to worry about the safety of your dog while I walk or sit them because I understand how special our fur babies are to our hearts. I know my dogs are my "fur children," and I'll be sure to treat your dog the same! I am looking forward to keeping your dogs healthy and fit while also spoiling them for the short time I have them!

As a lifelong animal lover, I’ve been walking dogs and taking care of animals since I was a little kid. I used to even ask my neighbor if I could walk their dog for them! As a previous employee at a major retailer that serves pets, I earned creditials in boarding, walking & safety. I worked in the Dog Hotel and was responsible for walking, feeding & exercising the dogs. I learned to relate well to the dogs by learning their personalities and their body language. As a Wag walker, I will treat each dog like a member of the family.

Dog Walking in Covington

Covington is a city in central Tipton County, located 42 miles northeast of Memphis. Set in West Tennessee and in close proximity to Mississippi River, Covington is considered a part of the Memphis Metropolitan Area. Although Covington doesn't have any dog-friendly places of its own, it's in close proximity to natural areas and preserves, which means dog-friendly fun is never far away! There's also a veterinary clinic here to take care of your pooch in case of accident or emergency.

Looking for something fun to do with Fido? Take an adventurous trip to the banks of Mississippi River near the Arkansas-Tennessee border. Lower Hatchie National Wildlife Refuge is an amazing park near Fulton with thriving wildlife and plenty of forest to explore! Your buddy should be on their leash at all times here. While you're at it, don't miss Fort Pillow State Historic Park. This is not a dog park, but it's still a great place to get cultured with your leashed buddy as you check out the Civil War artifacts and displays. Feel free to enjoy a picnic or hike in one of the designated areas!

Covington and its surroundings have plenty of drive-thrus if you want to enjoy a quick bite in your car. Prefer a sit-down meal? The staff at Shelby Forest General Store -- an old-fashioned country store and restaurant with pet-friendly policies -- will welcome you and Fido with open arms!

If you're feeling adventurous, try a maple bacon cupcake in Elwood’s Shack; the treat is so tasty that you'll want to order it again!

Germantown, a city in Shelby County, is the eastern and the closest neighbor of Memphis. You will find Forgey Park in the northwestern corner of town, behind Polar Estates. This furrific park offers a playground and a retreat for locals and visitors. Apart from the main public area, the park has a specially designated spot for pups! This fenced, off-leash park is divided into two sections so dogs can make some new friends their own size. The place even has automatic doggy water bowls! However, this is a membership-only park, and first time visitors are required to register and watch a short presentation. No time for that? Grab a slice of pizza instead at Grimaldi's Pizzeria, a pet-friendly restaurant with outdoor tables and friendly staff.
