“A walk a day keeps the vets away!”

Hey there! I’m a bilingual dog walker, pet sitter and pet care taker. At 16 years old, I relinquished sports to work at a vets office, and ever since there was no way back. Richmond is a hot spot for dog lovers/friendly people and allows for adventurous short or long walks. Favorite things about walking dogs besides the walk, is meeting your pups’ quirks, catch and plays. Check out the rest of my profile to see how I can help! Hablo espanol!

I am currently the proud owner of a Deer Chihuahua. Additionally, I have walked many dogs throughout my life and absolutely enjoy their companionship!

I admire a dogs playful nature and believe in the importance of meeting their daily needs, such as receiving regular excercise, fresh water, food, and lots of love!

“Experienced dog walker ready to love on your pet!”

Hi! I am Elizabeth and I am a senior in college studying Violin Performance. I grew up in Upstate NY on a farm with lots of animals. My passion was dogs and I got my first border collie when I was 13. As I grew older I became interested in breeding and training border collies and had several litters of puppies before I left for college. My dog Izzy currently lives with my parents where she is much happier than she would be in an apartment, and I look forward to seeing her when I go home.

“Exceptional Service including Covid 19 precautions”

I enjoy walking dogs, because it combines two of my favorites: dogs and the outdoors. I've been walking dogs for many years now, and I like seeing them enjoy all of the smells, sights and sounds of a walk. I think that healthy walks are vital to their health and wellbeing. I'm looking forward to walking your pup(s). I always strive to give 5 star service, so if you think of anything that would make the walk exceptional, please don't hesitate to let me know. Thank You!

Dog Walking in Chester

Located just twenty minutes or fifteen miles south of Virginia’s capital, Richmond, is the city of Chester. If you’re a history buff, you might already know a thing or two about this small city. Chester was founded way back in 1896, but before the city was even thought of, it was the scene of a civil war battle. And although it wasn’t an incorporated city until around 1907, it was already a bustlin’ little community at that point!

Chester’s still a busy little city, but if you’re a dog-owner looking for something to do with your pet, you might want to make your way up to Richmond. While Chester does have plenty of sidewalks for you and Fido to take a walk on, and while there are a few restaurants where your dog can dine with you, if you’re looking to run around and enjoy and off-leash dog park, you’ll have to travel a bit. Chester does have veterinarian offices, so you can rest easy in that department. If you enjoy taking in a bit of history and don’t mind traveling a bit, make sure to check out the city of Chester!

Dogs love going for walks, and for good reason: Walks help them get in their daily exercise and let them explore places they might otherwise not get to experience. If your dog enjoys a good walk, take him over to Chester Linear Park. This short trail, which is less than one mile long, allows you and your dog to explore nature while surrounded by the forest. Fido needs to be on a leash at all times, and you’ll want to bring along some water for the both of you and some waste disposal bags in case nature calls!

About twenty-five minutes north of Chester is Richmond’s Church Hill neighborhood, and if your dog loves playing with other four-legged friends, make sure to take him to Church Hill Dog Park at Chimborazo Park. This fenced-in, off-leash dog park has plenty of room for your energetic dog to run around while making new fur-iends. There are also three separate “cool down” stations in case your dog gets too hot on a sunny day! Water is provided for your pup. You’ll want to bring your own waste disposal bags, as none are provided.

Seventeen miles from Chester is Richmond’s Byrd Park, which is home to Barker Field at Byrd Park! This dog park is popular for its large size, meaning there’s plenty of room for even the most hyperactive dogs to burn off any excess energy. This bark park includes benches for dog parents and plenty of shade for both you and your pooch, and it also supplies water for the dogs during the hottest parts of the year. You’ll want to bring your own during the cooler months, though. This is an off-leash dog park.

Located about twenty minutes northeast of Chester is Henrico’s Dorey Park, where you’ll find what locals say is a hidden gem: Dorey Dog Park! Although this dog park is only one acre, it never seems to be too busy. This off-leash dog park has two separate areas, one for small dogs and another for large dogs. There are plenty of benches and picnic tables for pup parents, and the park also provides a lot of shade, which is nice on sunny days. You’ll want to bring along your own water and waste disposal bags, though.

If you and your dog both enjoy exploring nature, head to Pocahontas State Park, which is only about ten miles east of Chester. If you and your dog want to go for a walk, you have plenty of options here: There are over sixty-four miles of trails that run throughout the park, allowing you to choose the best option for you and your pooch. Pack a picnic lunch for the both of you; there are a few different picnic shelters around the park. Fido will need to stay on his leash at all times, no exceptions. Make sure to bring waste disposal bags and plenty of water!
