“Pets cared for like family!”
Hi, my name is Kelly. I’m a junior in college earning a bachelors of psychology. I’ve had a passion for animals my entire life, specifically dogs. Over the years i’ve become proficient in my understand of dog behavior, health, handling & training. I always apply those skills in relation to specific breeds/dogs as they all have different needs. I currently have a 12yo Maltese and a 4mo old Chihuahua. They are family to me and i’d be grateful for the opportunity to care for your dogs the same!

Hi! My name is Alex and I am a college student majoring in Human Nutrition and Exercise at Virginia Tech! I have been a dog lover as long as I can remember and I love being outdoors and staying active, especially with a furry friend as company! I have a lot of experience with dogs as I used to be a dog groomer and still volunteer at an animal shelter. I’m happy to take any special requests to make your dog feel right at home. I look forward to meeting you and your pup!

Hi there! I’m a huge animal lover. I volunteer for a local rescue group, Wolf Trap Animal Rescue, where I have fostered puppies, helped w/ “in-take" events, and even adopted a few fur babies myself including my pup/best-friend, Roo. I've walked dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds and can be flexible. I have lots of patience and understand some dogs need time to warm up to or gain trust in someone new. I have lots of love to give and understand your puppy's safety and happiness is a top priority!

Sitting pretty in the lee of Pearis Mountain and overlooking the New River, there’s no denying that Pearisburg, VA is a beautiful place indeed. The pleasing scenery doesn’t stop at the natural wonders of the area, though -- all seventeen of the painstakingly preserved buildings in the town’s historic district are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Giles County Courthouse, with its wings and portico, is particularly impressive! Pearisburg’s dedication to preserving its heritage is just one example of its strong community spirit -- the town also makes sure to foster the artistic talent of its citizens and is home to several arts festivals. Wander around the charming downtown area and you and your pooch can take in the many murals celebrating the community and its history!
Pearisburg doesn’t have its own dog park, but you and your four-legged friend are still sure to sniff out something to do! You’ll find a community park here that’s both scenic and relatively canine-friendly. If your buddy loves hiking, you’re in luck -- Pearisburg is a designated Appalachian Trail community, and you’ll find some furrifically fur-friendly hiking options in town. You’ll need to drive a little to find a fenced area where your furball can run free, but don’t worry -- you’ll find some pawesome dog parks not far away!
Whitt-Riverbend Park might not have its own off-leash area, but this Pearisburg gem is still a real mutts-visit! The waterside paved trail is a grrreat spot for a sedate, on-leash stroll. Whitt-Riverbend Park is also home to the River Bottom Trail, a tree-shaded, one-mile loop with little to no incline -- so this trek is suitable for everyone, from the most athletic animals to the slowest pooches! You’ll also find several interesting sculptures by local artists dotted around the park’s twenty-eight acres. Be sure to bring waste bags to help keep the area clean!
With Mill Creek Falls Nature Park just a stone’s throw away from Pearisburg in Narrows, you’d have to be barking mad not to check it out! Mill Creek is known as one of the best places in Virginia to hike with your dog, and it’s easy to see why -- the park’s 140 acres contain miles and miles of trails to sniff and explore. Fitter furry friends looking for a challenge may be tempted to try the steep waterfall trail, but the terrain isn’t suitable for dogs -- try one of the trails leading to Jefferson Forest instead, which feature majestic natural woodland, interesting rock formations, and serious inclines.
If you and your pooch are looking for a serious workout, why not try hiking to Angel’s Rest from Pearisburg via the Appalachian Trail? The inclines on this 3.5-mile out-and-back hike vary from the steep to the positively punishing, with wooded wonderland slowly giving way to real mountain terrain. Once you get to the top, though, you and your buddy might decide that the views were worth the trek -- you’ll be rewarded with panoramic vistas over the New River and Willburn valleys. Be sure to bring your own bags and water, and make sure you and your pup are fit enough for the climb!
Blacksburg Dog Park is a bit of a drive from Pearisburg, but make no bones about it -- once your buddy gets through those double gates, you’ll be glad you took the trip! This park is a pup’s paradise -- there’s space enough for even the most rambunctious doggo to run around and burn off their excess energy. There’s also a separate small dog area, so your pooch can play and socialize no matter their size! Not only that, but the park is well-shaded by mature trees, and there’s even a small pool for your best friend to splash about and cool down in. Bags, toys, and water are provided.
Sparky’s Run Dog Park in Radford might be a bit no-frills, but it’d still be a huge faux paw not to visit! The park isn’t the largest, but there’s still plenty of room for your pooch to run around and tire themselves out in, or for a spirited game of catch or tug-of-war. Like the dog park in Blacksburg, there’s a separate small dog area, and bags and water are provided. Careful, though -- the park’s surface is mostly dirt, so it can get quite muddy after it rains! You might want to bring a towel for post-play clean-up.
