“Your dog’s best friend when you can’t be there”

I am passionate about dogs and have raised and loved multiple medium to large breed dogs over the past 30 years. My current baby is an active 87 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback, the second Rhodesian I have raised from puppyhood. I tailor my level of effort to your dog’s needs and specialize in high energy dogs who enjoy a faster pace. I treat each of my dog clients as if they were my own and have a proven WAG! track record of being 100% reliable, giving above and beyond care to my clients on every walk.

I grew up with a dog named Terry in Virginia Beach, VA for the first 18 years of my life. I currently am a board member of the Norfolk SPCA and own a cat named noraA. I enjoy watching my best friend's two Golden Retrievers when he goes out of town as well as my sister's three Boston Terriers when she goes out of town. I already walk between 10-15 miles per day on my own so the opportunity to combine my love of dogs and walking is very exciting to me.

Dog Walking in Chesapeake

With over 200,000 citizens, Chesapeake, Virginia, is a large city. But unlike some metropolitan areas residents of Chesapeake do not have to worry about feeling isolated from nature. The urban part is surrounded with forests, farmland, and marshland. Furthermore, a large fraction of the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is part of Chesapeake.

Understandably, not all of these areas are suitable for pet owners to walk their dog. The farmlands are privately owned and dragging the dog through the mud does not equate to fun times. Luckily, Chesapeake, Virginia, offers multiple alternatives.

There are many regulars at the Chesapeake City Dog Park. This dog run, part of a larger recreational area, consists of two enclosed areas where dogs can play and run around without a leash. For the pet, owners who don't want to worry, there is a designated area for dogs that may be on the smaller side of the size spectrum in addition to a fountain to wash up once playtime is over.

The Western Branch Dog Park is also a place for dogs in town to get out of their leash and get rid of some of that energy. The park is fully enclosed and offers water fountains, shaded areas and park benches for the owners.

When you are just passing through, you and your furry pal can stay in one of the 20 pet-friendly hotels in the city. Don’t forget to stop at Bruster's Real Ice Cream for a special ice cream treat for your dog!
