Hi! I'm Kate. I'm a freelance writer who recently finished grad school. I'm looking for a little extra income and a few energetic pups to exercise with, so Wag is awesome! I started pet sitting and dog walking in my late teens, and I'm the proud godmother of Wayne and Ginsberg, a monstrous mutt and a small furry mutt respectively.

“All dogs are good dogs”

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!

Hi! My names Jessie and I am from Virginia. I have always loved dogs and while my older brothers always wanted a dog it wasn't until I came along that we got our first one. I have had three dogs, one cocker spaniel, and two miniature Austrailian shepherds. Sadly today only one of my mini Aussies remains, her name is Lily Bear and she is absolutely spoiled. I have the most experience with medium to small dogs but I am confident in my ability to handle larger dogs also. I am a current student at Virginia Tech were I am studying Clinical Neuroscience. In between my semesters at tech, I plan to be using wag and making sure every dog gets their outside time!

Dog Walking in Radford

Nestled on the banks of the New River between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, Radford, VA is a true Virginia Highlands gem. Once a bustling railway town, the boom in Radford ended almost as soon as it began with the Panic of 1894. The town pulled together and pulled through, however, and the recovery was greatly helped by the development of a women’s college. The institution lives on as Radford University, a small but prestigious co-ed school that has produced graduates that lead in their field, like human rights activist Scott Long.

That’s not the only feather in Radford’s cap, though -- the town is simply a lovely place to live. Radford is a safe, cordial, and community-oriented city, with a charming downtown filled with eclectic, locally owned shops, and some truly beautiful natural surroundings.

Radford is known for being family-friendly, and that attitude definitely extends towards four-legged family members! The town has its own dog park, as well as some pawesome community parks. Bisset Park is a wonderful spot for a leashed walk, and boasts some gorgeous riverside views. Not only that, but the city is close by some fantastically fur-friendly hiking options. No matter how long or short your stay, you and your pooch are sure to have a grrreat time in Radford!

Radford’s University District certainly welcomes wagging tails with open arms! You and your pooch can wander past its stately architecture and specialty shops on your way for a walk in Wildwood Park. This lush, wooded valley has a couple of well-shaded trails for you and your pooch to sniff and explore, and they're mostly flat, too, so a trip here is suitable for all ages and abilities. After you two have strolled up an appetite, consider stopping in at Benny Nicola’s. This furrific pizza joint does a mean thin crust, and they cater to canines outside.

Radford’s Greenhill neighborhood is a real mutts-visit! Clustered around Cupp’s Stadium, this area is home to a lot of students -- but don’t worry, it’s not too rowdy of a place! Not only is this apartment complex pet-friendly, but Greenhill is also home to Sparky’s Run Dog Park, Radford’s only off-leash offering. Sparky’s Run might not be the largest, but there’s still plenty of room for even the most rambunctious fur-ball to leap about to their heart’s content. Bags and water are provided, so just bring your pup and prepare to play! Careful, though -- the park can get very muddy after it rains, so you might want to bring a towel for post-play clean-up.

Dublin, VA is a sleepy, rural place, but the pawpular state park on the outskirts of town attracts hikers from far and wide. No bones about it, nature-loving pooches will go wild for a trip to Claytor Lake State Park! You’ll find miles and miles of tree-lined hiking trails to wander down, rated from easy to moderate, and most of them boast gorgeous views of the 21-mile-long Claytor Lake. The area is also known as a great spot for camping, and the sight of the sun rising over the water is unforgettable. You’ll be paying extra for your buddy to stay over, though -- another ten dollars. A small price to pay for a Fido-friendly adventure!

Quiet and residential, the neighborhood of Tom’s Creek in Blacksburg sits right in the shadow of the mountains. That being said, a visit to Blacksburg Dog Park is sure to be the bright spot in your furry friend’s day! The park is huge -- there’s tons of space for your pooch to run around and tire themselves out in, and fitter furry friends will be glad to know that there’s some agility equipment for some extra canine cardio. The only downside is that Blacksburg Dog Park doesn’t have a separate small dog area, but if that’s not a dealbreaker for you, you’d be barking mad not to bring your dog here!

If you and your pooch are looking for a pretty place to stretch all six of your legs, look no further than the Huckleberry Trail! The closest trailhead to Radford is tucked away in Merrimac on the outskirts of Blacksburg, a laid-back neighborhood on the Slate Branch where suburban gives way to rural. The trail itself is a 7.5-mile converted railway line that winds its way through woodland and bucolic pastoral scenes, and as an added bonus, there are benches every half-mile, so you can take a load off if you feel like your pooch has been walking you!
