Having lived alongside several amazing canine companions all my life, I understand the importance of finding knowledgeable, trustworthy caretakers to look look after your four-legged family members. My years of experience as an animal rescuer, shelter volunteer, and veterinary assistant providing onsite and in-home clinical care render me well-equipped to meet your pet's unique care needs. I have been fortunate to work domestically and internationally with breeds of all sizes, temperaments, and backgrounds. Whether during a walk, on the grooming table, or playing fetch in the backyard, your dog's comfort and safety are always my top priorities. I look forward to devoting my undivided attention to your furry friend sometime soon!

Dog Walking in Lynchburg

Lynchburg Dog Park is Lynchburg’s only off-leash dog park. This park has two separate areas – one for large dogs (heavier than 30 pounds) and one for small dogs. Small dogs are welcome to play in the large dogs’ area, but if any problems occur, they must return to the small dog area. Dogs must be at least four months old and have an up-to-date license on their collars to be allowed into the park. Lynchburg Dog Park is open every day during daylight hours.

Is Fido getting tired of the same old walking route? Consider changing things up a bit by exploring the James River Heritage Trail. The James River Heritage Trail is one of the 1,600 rail-trails created by the Rails-to-Trail Conservancy. You and your pup will see bikers, joggers, skaters, and other dog-walkers on this trail, so make sure your dog does well around strangers. Dogs must be on their leashes and cleaned up after.

Hiking James River Heritage Trail will definitely build up an appetite, so you and Fido should visit Abbey Road Pub and Restaurant afterwards. Enjoy seafood, steak, salads and more, and then wash it all down with your choice from over 100 types of beer from 80 countries. Canine companions can eat with their humans on the patio.
