“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!

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!

“Preferred Walker - Exceptional Service - Pets 1st”

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 Glen Allen

 Glen Allen is an unincorporated community in Henrico County, Virginia. Originally called "Mountain Road Crossing", the settlement came to be known as Glen Allen, taking its name from the homestead of a local landowner, Mrs. Benjamin Allen. Once an area of mostly rural farmland, Glen Allen is now a growing suburb of Richmond.

The town has lots of leafy streets for you and the pooch to ramble around, and it also has a massive shopping mall – Virginia Center Commons – should you feel the need for a spot of retail therapy! Glen Allen must be doing something right because it was featured in both the 2007 and 2009 editions of Money Magazine's "Top 100 Places to Live”.

The town is also home to the Meadow Farm Museum, an 1860 living history farm site where costumed interpreters re-enact the lives of Dr. John Mosby Sheppard, the owner of Meadow Farm, and his family.

If you’re planning on extending your stay in Glen Allen, there are plenty of local pet-friendly hotels in the area. Extended Stay America Richmond West End accepts two pets of any size for an additional fee of $25 per pet, per night, and Aloft Richmond West allows pets of any size for no additional fee.

Some of them have 4-foot fences, others have 6-foot fences, but what they all have in common is plenty of wide-open space for doggie to run! You and the pooch can also have a wander around the boutique, where you’ll find a variety of unique gifts for pets, including toys, special leashes and collars, and Super Premium Dog foods, too!

As well as ducks, the nearby pond is also home to Canada geese, mallards, and great blue herons. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on-leash.
