Hi There, I have been an avid dog lover since a very young age. I first started walking dogs for a family friend who was also a neighbor of my parents. Since then, I have been dog sitting for friends and family while they take business trips, personal trips or no nights outs. I have a great personality to match my work ethic.

Dog Walking in South Houston

South Houston was incorporated in 1907. The city was once known for its shipping industry, as 3 railroad lines ran right through this area. Then, after a hurricane hit the area in 1915, shipping was done mainly through the Houston Ship Channel. It was after this that the population of South Houston really took off.

South Houston is a great place for you and your canine friend to visit or live. If you travel right outside of South Houston to the muttropolis of Houston, you'll find even more puptastic activities for you and your pooch to enjoy. In Houston, which is located only 12 miles from South Houston, you'll find plenty of pawesome dog parks where you and your pal can get some mutts-needed exercise or just enjoy a casual on-leash stroll together.

One place you must visit in Houston is The Houston Arboretum & Nature Center. This natural paradise is the pawfect place to get up-close and personal with native flora and fauna. You and your leashed pup are more than welcome to enjoy the walking trails here, which are lined with trees that'll shield you from the Texas sun. You'll even find a small pond that your pooch can sniff around -- just don't let him get in the water. Speaking of water, make sure to bring some for yourself and your pup while on the trails.

South Houston's convenient location makes it a furrific place to visit or live with your canine companion.
