My experience with dogs started as a child. In seventh grade, my best friend’s mom owned a dog kennel, where I volunteered throughout middle and HS. The kennel eventually switched ownership, so I got a job at a doggy daycare, but when the kennel reopened I was hired. During my time at the new facility I played many roles; trainer, groomer, manager, and everything in between. For five years I also pet sat a highly trained German Shepherd guard dog who belonged to a prominent Israeli family.

“I believe pets are family and treat them as such.”

I have walked dogs and have worked with Wag for a little over 2 years now. I have done boarding and sitting. I can give meds. I have took a pet CPR and first aid class. If you need boarding for your dog/s and if they need to be the only dog/s. Just let me know and my dogs can stay at my parents house. I look forward to caring for your furbabies. Thank you.

“Hounds follow those who feed them!”

A recent move from Fort Lauderdale, I am thrilled to be in the Brentwood area. My specialty as a dog walker is to be a reliable and trust worthy helper. I take pride in showing I have a unique bond with animals and always dreamed to make dog walking a career when I was little. Since joining Wag! I found a wonderful way to turn work into passion!

Dog Walking in Hermitage

Hermitage is an eastern neighborhood of Nashville, Tennessee, operating as an individual suburb with a highly developed net of retail stores and an impressive residential area offering both simple homes and extensive residences. The neighborhood is home to pet-friendly eateries and three veterinary clinics, but if you want to include some outdoor activities in your itinerary, you will have to travel to the neighboring areas.

Stones River Greenway in the Riverside Edge neighborhood, just a few miles north of Hermitage, is a 10-mile trail system offering a good walk from Shelby Bottoms to Percy Priest Lake. You can stop off at Stones River Dog Park (located at the beginning of the trail) and Two Rivers Park along the way. Bring plenty of water with you, and make sure to keep your pup on a leash along the trail.

When your bellies start growling, visit Famous Dave’s Barbecue, offering a friendly atmosphere and even better company -- the locals love dining with their dogs here! Browse the extensive menu of starters and snacks. While in Hermitage, you just have to try Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, a scrumptious specialty dish at First Watch Cafe.

Belinda Parkway is one of the main roads in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. Feel free to explore the commercial area and multiple convenience stores along the parkway, but do pay a visit to Mt. Juliet Bark Park if you are traveling with your pup. This clean and well-maintained dog park has a fenced area where pooches can play and chase to their hearts' content. You'll also find picnic tables where you can share a treat or relax in the shade. Drinking water fountains are also available for four-legged visitors, as well as benches for humans. Keep in mind that, when it rains, the park quickly becomes muddy, and you will definitely need a towel to clean your buddy’s paws.

Smith Spring Public Use Area is a huge recreation spot just 15 minutes from downtown Nashville, offering a wide variety of outdoor activities, including hiking, canoeing, picnicking and even hunting! The closeness of J. Percy Priest Lake is an added bonus, welcoming pups to swim or at least dip their paws in the crystal clear water. This area is not a dog park, so you'll have to keep your buddy on their leash and avoid the beaches and fishing spots if you want your buddy to swim. Relax and savor a homemade meal or picnic in the shaded area with tables. The place is open from April 1 to October 29.

Antioch is one of the southern neighborhoods in Nashville. The area is known for its rapidly developing commercial district. William A. Pits Park is one of the recreation areas in the neighborhood -- apart from Antioch Park -- where you can let your buddy roam along the walking trails. Or, make a beeline for the off-leash dog park! The designated dog area at William A. Pits Park is one of the most pawpular places for local dog owners to congregate, so your pup is sure to make some friends here! This park has plenty of grass, clean water fountains for dogs, and seating for humans.
