Hello! My name is Toni and I am currently in my mid 30s. I have always grown up with dogs and I absolutely love being around them! I currently own one dog, a 5 year old border collie, who loves to walk! We typically take a 3-4 mile walk on any nice weather day! I split my time between Texas and Colorado, so while I am in Texas I would love to help you take care of your dog(s).

“Pounding Pavement for Pups!”

I have had dogs all my life, I have always loved them. I got involved in rescue over 10 years ago and have been fortunate to help and love many dogs. Being able to care for them and see them transform from the sick, scared, or abused (often all of those) dogs into healthy, loving babies is so rewarding. They are so loving, and deserve the very best we can do for them!

“I’ll love and take care of your precious pups!”

Hi, I'm Brett Weiss! I grew up and still live in Fort Worth. I've always owned at least one dog, and when I was a kid, I considered my dog Shep my best friend. He was my constant companion. Over the past few years, I've taken care of my sister's dogs while she was out of town. I also take excellent care of my own two dogs, Frisco and Daisy, walking them daily and seeing to their every need. I absolutely adore dogs, so walking dogs is one of my favorite things to do. In short, I love dogs!!

Dog Walking in River Oaks

River Oaks is a small destination with big value. When compared to the sprawling expanse of neighboring Fort Worth, River Oaks is tiny, but not forgotten. This suburban town has a veterinary hospital all its own. It also has an amazing, dog-friendly restaurant: J’s Casa Burger, where homemade American classics like burgers and fries are made fresh, hot, and better than ever.

River Oaks also borders Marion Samson Park. This amazing park is a great place to take your dog if both of you like a workout. There are biking and hiking trails that aren’t for the faint of heart, so bring a backpack, water, and your camera--word has it that there are fossils to be found in the rocks out here!

If you’re looking for an easier walk, check out the YMCA’s Camp Carter. Where it borders the West Fork Trinity River is a great place to take an easy walk by the water. Park in the YMCA parking lot, but be aware of events that make parking hard to come by.

Even though it’s not as large as Fort Worth, River Oaks is stacked with natural beauty and has lots of doggie dining options for people looking to share a vacation meal with their pup.
