“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!

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

Hi! I am Elizabeth and I am a freelance violinist and violin teacher! 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. In May of 2020, my boyfriend and I adopted our pup Butter. He is the best boy ever and has us head over heels for him!

“Care from a life long dog owner”

Hi there! My name is Eddie, and I can’t wait to meet your pup. I’ve been on wag! since 2018 and I’ve fallen in love with all the dogs I’ve been able to care for. My dog, Kota, and I recently moved to RVA with two other friends. We have a spacious back yard that’s fully fenced in and Kota is the friendliest girl I’ve ever met. I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life so caring for them is second nature. The pics in my gallery are of my family’s current dogs but only the small tan pup lives here!

Dog Walking in Etna Mills

Etna Mills is an unincorporated community that thrives on the edge of the Richmond muttropolitan area. Where neighboring towns offer big city attractions, Etna Mills is still a taste of the country in Virginia. Dogs love the country: fresh air, squirrels and birds to chase, and true amenities. You’ll have to go to neighboring King William for veterinary care, but that’s still less than 12 miles by car. Follow Etna Mills Road west, and you’ll come to Gravatts Millpond, where a turnout offers a great view of the water feature.

Using Etna Mills as your base, take a short trip over Hanover for lunch or dinner at the Houndstooth Cafe. True to its name, this little cafe welcomes dogs to its outdoor tables and chairs. Your pup can drink from a provided water bowl while you peruse a menu stocked with classics like collard greens and homemade lemonade.

If your pup prefers modern twists on classic meals, try The Hangover Cafe instead. The tongue in cheek name belies the treats that you can get there--classics like burgers are served side by side with flounder, reubens, and fried green tomatoes. Then head back to Etna Mills to enjoy all the charms that only a small town can offer to humans and dogs alike.
