Hi! My name is Bailey and I work as a Veterinary Assistant at an animal hospital, and am going to school to be a Vet tech, essentially nursing for animals. I've grown up with dogs in my home and have always been a huge animal lover. I've been walking dogs & caring for both dogs & cats for 7 years. I am comfortable with any pets including ones who may have special needs. I am active & am always happy to run or do fast walks if you have high energy pups!!

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.
