My name is Mahogany and I’m a longtime dog lover! I love the beach and I love doggies! I have my own standard poodle and I understand the demands of raising a high maintenance dog that requires care in all areas of their appearance, diet and lifestyle. I bring that knowledge to my care for all pets. I’d love to bond with your dog, share tips and advice with you, and develop relationships with you! I’m extremely experienced with large dog breeds and young or senior dogs are welcome!

Dog Walking in Smithfield

The quaint city of Smithfield in eastern Virginia is a place of true hospitality with the allure of a small town. Tiny neighborhoods and small streets will lead you to the downtown area with its majestic, historic architecture and small-town charm. According to Best of the Bay 2013 Awards from Chesapeake Bay Magazine, Smithfield is recognized as the fifth best dog-friendly town in the area! No wonder almost all the cafes, restaurants and shops are happy to see your pooch every time you come by. And, if your furry friend is in need of some medical help, you'll find an animal hospital in the center of the city.

The first place you must visit in Smithfield is Windsor Castle Park, which has a designated dog park on-site. The dog park features two separate areas for running and exercising, benches, shade, and even pools! Registration (which involves paying a small fee) is required for all visitors.
