    I grew up with a dog named Terry in Virginia Beach, VA for the first 18 years of my life. I served on the board of the Norfolk SPCA from 2015-2022 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.

    Hello all! My name is Jessica and I’ll be walking dogs in the Norfolk and VA beach areas. I’ve grown up with golden retrievers and currently own two Goldens. I’m very experienced with dogs big and small, and I’ve even been an assistant dog trainer! I’m looking for something to fill my free time and what better way to do that than taking care of adorable pups and getting exercise?! I look forward to meeting you and your pup

    I love dogs and can't wait to make friends with the next one I meet! We grew up with dogs and I've had dog(s) for many many years. Good manners and behavior are important so it follows that training is too!

    I have had pets my entire life. Currently we have an Olde English Bulldog and a Pitbull. We also have multiple rescued cats. I am also pet sitting my oldest daughters Chamilian and snake at this time. I am a stay at home mom who tinkers with vendor shows and fills in with Happy At Home Professional Pet Care and with Birdie's Pet Sitting. I have lots of flexibility to help with keeping cats or dogs active even while scooping their poop. I enjoy walking and playing with animals.

    I’ve been walking and sitting pets professionally for over 5 years, and I would love to help you take care of yours too.

Whether you have the smallest teacup pup or the biggest mastiff I will gladly take care of them! Sittings will come with frequent visits, hang out time, and walks to be sure your pets never get lonely while you are away.

    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!

There is also a wading pool in the park, covered seating, drinking water, and waste disposal items.

    Norfolk, Virginia is home to another dog park known as the Colonial Greenway Dog Park, which is located in the central Norfolk neighborhood called Colonial Place. This dog park is one large, fenced space that doesn't separate dogs by size, so mind your pup's temperament if you come here. There is a small pool for dogs to cool off in, as well as a selection of ropes, balls, and other toys. Improvements are regularly being made to this park to help make sure it's a fun and safe space for dogs and their owners to visit.

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.
