Hey hey! I’m Kaylee and I currently have three shih tzus - Toby 7, Spencer 4, & Axel 1. My family has also had pittbulls, so I’m comfortable with an array of breeds. They’re a huge light in my life, and I’m sure yours are too! I’m currently a nursing student and love to get outdoors. Any day I get a glimpse of a sweet pup is a great day, so this is a win win.

Hello! I am so happy to be a dog walker on wag! I have grown up with dogs all of my life, including my German shepherd mix that I currently own.

“I let the dogs out.”

Thanks for checking me out! I grew up in a home with all sorts of creatures. Taking care of animals has always been a part of my life. You know the kid who would frequently bring home lost babies & go to Kinkos to print flyers to find the owners? That’s me! I live on horse-boarding property in my tiny-home where we will have plenty of room to roam in a large fenced area. I love to be around animals and would love to meet yours! -Brilla My general availability as a barista 11a-10p M - F Free S/S

Dog Walking in Martindale

The infamous town of Martindale is 30 miles south of Austin, surrounded by old farmlands and great places to go camping. The old-timey feel of the city has been used by many film scouts over the years, reoccurring in scenes from different drama and horror movies. The movie never ends for Martindale's dogs, since the area is rich in natural and developed places to walk and spend some outdoor time with Fido. And while Martindale is too small for its own veterinary clinic, one can be found just 5 miles away in San Marcos.

The Allen Bates River Park is the largest park in the city, resting right on the shore of the San Marcos River. Grassy fields cover the park with scattered trees, dirt walkways, and access to the river for swimming and fishing. The park also includes a basketball court, swings, a pavilion, a playground, trash bins, and benches. Dogs do not have to be on a leash inside this park.

The Spencer Canoes & Shady Grove Campground is a well-maintained area with multiple camping spots, open space, and wooded trails. The grounds have picnic tables, a pavilion, and plenty of space to run around and set up your tents with your pooch. You'll have to come prepared with water and clean-up bags, but dogs do not have to be on a leash inside this park.

Martindale provides residents with a cozy and quiet place to live and play with Fido, so make this town the backdrop to your own buddy flick!
