“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!

“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!

“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!

Henrico's close proximity to Richmond makes it the pawfect place to be a dog owner. The city also has a subtropical climate, which means you and Fido can enjoy outdoor activities no matter the season!

If you're just passing through the area, you won't find any pet-friendly lodging options in Henrico (apart from AirBnB rentals), but Richmond is home to multiple hotels and other lodging options that welcome canine guests.

Henrico is also a furrific place to chow down with your hungry hound! It's home to several dog-friendly restaurants that cater to canine guests at the outdoor seating areas. Johnny Rockets has a unique '50s diner setting and classic American fare. For hearty "bark-b-que", head to Mission BBQ. Saladworks is a puptastic option for health-conscious pups and parents, and Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt is a great place to end the day with a sweet treat.

Next to the James River in Byrd Park is a nice, fenced dog park called Barker Field where you can let your pup off the leash to enjoy some time with other doggies. The place has a lot to offer, including benches, shade, poop baggies, different doggie toys, and plenty of canine company! You should know that the park has water available, but only in-season, so in the colder months, you should bring some with you. The only problem with this park is that it tends to get really crowded on the weekends. However, if your pup is a social butterfly, that might a plus rather than a problem!

Around 20 miles away from Henrico, you'll find another pawesome (and puntastic!) place that your dog will fall head over paws for: Ruff House Dog Park. This park has two separate areas for large dogs, which are usually rotated for maintenance. There is a separate area for little doggies, too. Several watering stations are available for use, and the ground around them tends to get muddy, so bring a towel! Waste baggies are provided as well so you can clean up after your pup, and there are toys scattered through the park for extra fun! What more could you want?

Dorey Dog Park is located 21 miles away from Henrico in the small town of Varina. This park isn't the largest in the area -- it's only one acre divided into two sections for dogs of different sizes. The fence is 5 feet high to keep your barking buddy from escaping. It may be small, but this park is pawpular with the locals and welcomes lots of canine visitors, so if you're looking to socialize your dog, this is the perfect place! The park is very well-maintained, so bring waste bags to keep it that way. This grassy park also features picnic tables and benches for the pet parents.

If you want to avoid crowded parks and the possibilities of mischief that come with a lot of dogs in one place, you should consider checking out the Phideaux Field Dog Park.

The park features plenty of grass to roll around in and provides waste baggies for cleaning up after your pooch. There are water bowls provided as well, but you'll have to bring your own water. A couple of benches and some trees make the atmosphere more pleasant, especially in the summer.
