“I respect and nurture a dogs needs!”

I am currently the proud owner of a Deer Chihuahua. Additionally, I have walked many dogs throughout my life and absolutely enjoy their companionship! Growing up in a family of six, we had five dogs, varying in sizes and personalities. I admire a dogs playful nature and believe in the importance of meeting their daily needs, such as receiving regular excercise, fresh water, food, and lots of love!

“Exceptional Service including Covid 19 precautions”

I enjoy walking dogs, because it combines two of my favorites: dogs and the outdoors. I've been walking dogs for many years now, and I like seeing them enjoy all of the smells, sights and sounds of a walk. I think that healthy walks are vital to their health and wellbeing. I'm looking forward to walking your pup(s). I always strive to give 5 star service, so if you think of anything that would make the walk exceptional, please don't hesitate to let me know. Thank You!

Dog Walking in Powhatan

Powhatan is a historical county and city in the heart of Virginia. Both the city of Powhatan and Powhatan County have several cultural landmarks from both colonization and the Civil War. European explorers arrived in the area in the 1600s, and it is in this area where Chief Powhatan engaged in many well-documented negotiations with the Europeans. French Huguenots eventually settled along the James River and began developing the town, and many of their descendants still live in the area. 

There are many communities now thriving throughout Powhatan. The town has many parks and trail systems that wind through the historical monuments. The communities have a variety of single-family homes, apartments, and condominiums to meet the needs of a variety of families. 

Today, five sites are found throughout the county of Powhatan that are part of the Civil War Trails system. These outdoor sites welcome dog walkers and are popular among history buffs and nature enthusiasts alike. 

If you're looking for a dog-friendly place to grab a quick bite, Sweet Shop Donuts offers a little bit of everything. You can enjoy their breakfast, lunch, and dinner options with your pup at one of their three outdoor tables, seven days a week.
