“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 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.

Dog Walking in Hopewell

Located about 20 miles south of Richmond near the James River, Hopewell is a suburban town with pooch and family-friendly activities. Pups who need medical care will be able to visit the Hopewell Animal Hospital for veterinarian services, which offers regular appointments and emergency care.

When looking for a pooch-friendly activity, take Fido for a walk around Fort Abbot Park. This is a historic site where you can read up on some history of the local area while your pooch sniffs the grass and trees. There are picnic tables where you can relax with a bottle of water and Fido can play with a toy.

In the west part of town, Atwater Park features open space for your pup and a playground for the kids. You can walk along the path around the park and get some exercise, and the kids can hang out on the playground equipment. There are picnic shelters when you need a break, and restrooms are convenient and close to parking.

If you are searching for a dog-friendly place to stay in town, the Econo Lodge welcomes your pooch for an additional fee. The motel is close to the Civil War Battlefields, the Mall, and several restaurants.

Families who don’t want to live in the city, but appreciate local amenities will love the pup-friendly town of Hopewell.
