“I can’t wait to meet your pup!”

I have had a passion for all animals my whole life! I have two dogs of my own both are Papillons, named Sasha and Cynder. I had a job walking dogs in high school and I loved forming a bond with the dogs I walked as well as the pet parents! I have also worked in a grooming salon so I have a lot of experience handling dogs, big and small, and It taught me how to handle many different situations. I am excited to meet some of the dogs around my community!

Due to my lifelong exposure to dogs of all ages, sizes and personality types, I would consider myself to be a highly adaptable canine caretaker. Because of this, I'm happy to match your pup's energy level on our walk. From fun runs to leisurely walks and everything in between, I'm game as long as it makes your little one wag his or her tail. Additionally, I'm happy to help any pups with special needs that need extra care while their moms and dads are away.

Dog Walking in Spotsylvania County

Spotsylvania (also known as Spotsylvania Courthouse) is the county seat of Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Its original inhabitants were a Siouan-speaking tribe called the Manahoac. Spotsylvania County was established in 1721 and named in Latin for the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, Alexander Spotswood.

Spotsylvania has a lot of historic ties to the Civil War, with many battles fought in the county, including the Battle of Chancellorsville, Battle of the Wilderness, Battle of Fredericksburg, and Battle of Spotsylvania Court House. This earned Spotsylvania the title “Crossroads of the Civil War.” General Stonewall Jackson was shot and mortally wounded by friendly fire in Spotsylvania County during the Battle of Chancellorsville.

While some parts of the county are still somewhat rural, Spotsylvania County is largely made up of suburban areas. There has been an influx of new residents to Spotsylvania in recent years because of the relatively low cost of living, with many residents commuting to northern Virginia or Washington, D.C. for work.The local urban and community forests are very important to locals, and new housing developments are being built with green spaces for both residents and visitors to enjoy. There are quite a few of these green spaces to explore in the area, many of which are former Civil War battlefields, such as Wilderness Battlefield and Chancellorsville Battlefield.
