I'm Briana, nice to meet you! I am a Dog Person down to my very core, and I guarantee I'll love your pups as much as you do (just promise not to tell my cats). My grandmother used to have her own kennel, so I grew up around dogs of all ages, sizes, and temperaments! I was responsible for cleaning, feeding, and socializing them, as well as teaching simple commands. Since then, I've volunteered at shelters whenever I've had the chance, and now I'm excited to start a new venture in dog walking! I hope I can make you and your dog's lives a little easier and happier!

I'm a currently enrolled college student born and raised here in Austin. I play soccer and love being outdoors with my dogs. I own two Australian cattle dogs and love walking them through the neighborhood or sometimes running them at a park. I have taken a first aid trauma medical course from San Antonio SWAT team members and always carry a first aid kit in my truck. I've pet-sat for many family members and neighbors for short and extended periods of time, as well as volunteered at the Austin Pet Shelter. I really like dogs, they're the most loyal animal, and I secretly feel that I'm a dog whisperer. I look forward to meeting you and your dog, and gaining both of your friendships!

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!
