My name is Andrew, I am 31 years old and a lifelong dog dad. I have been raised around dogs my whole life, ranging from schnauzers to boxers, so I can handle it all. Dogs have a particular affinity for me and have never met a dog that was a stranger. I have volunteered at several animal hospitals and boarding centers and have found my ultimate passion in caring for them. I hope to one day have my own kennel and adoption service! Can’t wait to meet you and your furry best friend!
Hello, I am a dog lover from way back. I grew up on a farm and always had a furry friend to call my own. I enjoy exercise as I am a Health/PE teacher, so the walking is very enjoyable to me. I own a maltipoo named Lexie and she is such a joy to me! I look forward to meeting you and your sweet furry friend too! I hope that I can be a blessing to you and your doggie.

The Virginia Creeper is a fast-growing vine named after one of the first locations it was found in North America. There is also a trail in Abingdon known as the Virginia Creeper National Recreation Trail. This 32.7-mile trail is paved with gravel and you will see many hikers, bikers, and even horseback riders along the way. Your dog can join you on your journey, and you'll both come across plenty of terrific scenery along your walk. There are picnic spots, parks, rivers, forests, fields, and even railway memorabilia on the path. The Virginia Creeper Trail is part of a network of trails that were once abandoned railway lines that have been converted into paths for public use.
Another trail that is part of the same network as the Virginia Creeper Recreation Trail is only half an hour from Abingdon in Saltville, Virginia. The Salt Trail is an 8.5-mile portion of the trail network and is made up of a variety of surfaces, including gravel, grass, and stone. The Salt Trail passes through many picturesque farming communities and woodlands. Dog walkers love using this trail to exercise their pets because most of it is very quiet without a lot of traffic to disturb you. This portion of the trail is also open to equestrians, so your four-legged pet might just meet a whole different four-legged friend along the way.
The town of Bristol, Tennessee is only a 20-minute drive from Abingdon, and here you will find a great dog park known as the Bristol Bark Park. It is located within a larger park called the Charlie Robinette Park and it has separate sections for dogs of different sizes. In the summer, little pools are brought in to keep the dogs cool. The park also provides waste bags, waste bins, and benches when you need to take a break. Visitors love how friendly the people and the dogs are at this Bark Park where you and Rover are sure to have a blast!
It isn't exclusively a dog park, but Bristol is also home to a park known as Sugar Hollow. Leashed dogs are welcome at this northeast Bristol Park, and there is plenty to do here for the whole family, like biking, camping, picnicking, playgrounds, and playing softball or soccer. The park spans 400 acres, and it's a great spot to come for a day or visit for a longer amount of time when you stay to camp. It is also an excellent place to host family gatherings outside of the home where your dogs can still come because it has several public picnic pavilions perfect for spending time with your family.
