Hi I'm Tom. My whole life I've grown up with and loved dogs. I have walked our family dogs and those of friends including our sweet Husky Cody and my girlfriend's affectionate Wheaten Terrier. I run daily for my marathon training so I'll hopefully keep up with your buddy okay. While I presently don't have any dogs (I have four cats who are very special), I know how beloved your furry companions are to you. I hope to see you soon.

Hi, I am Helen. I am home mother with my husband and 2 boys. I have dog Chewy, dachshund mix and cat Tom, Domestic Short at home. They are so sweet, I love them so much. One is calm, likes to be hugged and combed. Another one is active, full of energy, likes run and fetch. I love their different character. I like to take chewy to walk in the beautiful natural environment. Keep eye on him, ensure he is not sniffing/eating bad things. Observe his poop color and shape when I clean up, that helps me understand his health condition. Talking and sometime singing quietly to him when we see something interesting. He likes that and always look at me softly and want a pet and huge. If you like your lovely one have a same safe and joyful walking, please let me know, and I definitely love to take care them, because they deserve to.

I have been a dog walker for 10+ years and I love the relationship that I can have with a pet aside from the owner/pet relationship. I am like the grandparent that gets to spoil and love them then I get to see them every day or when parents go out of town and we get to have a fun time and play hard. I love talking to them and at some point I expect them to start talking back.

Hello, my name is Kelli. My life would be empty without the love of an animal in it so I go out of my way to surround myself with them. I am currently the proud mother of a Great Dane named Griffin but have been fortunate enough to have three of them in my life so far. He's a spoiled boy for sure. I will go out of my way to treat your family member just like they are mine, they will know nothing but love and patience from me when I come to visit. You can be rest assured that I will follow all of your instructions for what you and your dog needs entail. I recently had a small pet sitting service that I ran for friends and neighbors but have recently moved to this area and thought this would be a great way to get to know the community and the dogs that are loved in it. Plus, I need as much exercise as your dog does during the day. Win Win! I look forward to meeting you and your best friend!

Dog Walking in The Colony

As a northern suburb of Dallas, The Colony is an amazing place to create countless lasting memories with your pooch. You'll fall in love with the city's commercial and cultural allure as well as its outdoor activities. The pooches, both locals and visitors, love the pet-friendly attitude of the area, as well as its two dog parks and three veterinary clinics.

You will find no better place to play than Pawesome Playground Dog Park in the northern part of town. This fenced, off-leash dog park near the water has plenty of open space to explore. If the Pawesome Playground isn't quite pawesome enough for your pup, don't despair! The Shacks Dining and Dog Park is a great alternative for your pooch to hang out in a cool, unique place where mouthwatering food is served to both humans and canines! You'll need to sign up for a membership before visiting.

Hankering for a hike? You'd be barking mad not to explore the Arbor Hills Trail, which is located just out of town, but is easily accessible. This dog-friendly trail stretches for about 3 miles in Denton County, from Arbor Vista Drive to West Parker Road, and is suitable for both beginner and seasoned hikers alike!

The Colony is a furrific place for dogs and their owners, particularly those who like to eat and play! (And, let's face it, who doesn't like to eat and play?)
