I grew up with a dog named Terry in Virginia Beach, VA for the first 18 years of my life. I currently am a board member of the Norfolk SPCA and own a cat named noraA. I enjoy watching my best friend's two Golden Retrievers when he goes out of town as well as my sister's three Boston Terriers when she goes out of town. I already walk between 10-15 miles per day on my own so the opportunity to combine my love of dogs and walking is very exciting to me.

Hi! I've lived in Virginia for the last 18 years. Graduated from ODU and walk/take care of my furry friends as a part-time job. I don't really consider this a 'job' because I absolutely LOVE dogs and they keep me active and young! I have experience with many types of breeds, anywhere from a four pound Pomeranian to big Chinese Shar pei. I pet sit for friends and family all the time and have had to administer insulin to one of the dogs twice a day. I have a pretty flexible schedule and can cater to your needs and requests. I look forward to taking care of you furry baby!

Another dog park in Norfolk is located in the northern tip of the city, and it's called the Ocean View Bark Park on Maple Avenue. This large dog park is a space where dogs of all sizes can interact in the same space, and it has a double-gated entry system to prevent any canine escape artists from getting out. There is plenty of seating in the park, but some visitors note there isn't a lot of shade, so that's something to be aware of before you visit on a hot day. There is drinking water available for dogs, as well as a kiddie pool they can cool off in on hot days.
