Hey, my name is Mark. I was born in Las Vegas, NV. I grew up around a variety of canines of all shapes and sizes, and as I got older I began 'pet sitting' for my friends and family. I watched over their pets as if they were my own. When ever I went for a run I would always take their dog with me and by the time they came back for them their little friend would already be asleep having enjoyed a very active day. For me, its easy to be around animals and they really seem to enjoy me as well. I always ensure that their pets are in good hands when they are with me.

Hi, Winter here to help with your fur babies when you’re away! I have many years experience with all kinds of animals, primarily canines. I have had dogs in my family from the time I was born, but when I moved out into the world I rescued my (officially MY) pride and joy, my husky-akita Oakley girl, and I gained experience in gradual behavioral training as well. I do have a hip injury, so I’m unable to jog for long periods of time and I do have difficulty with endurance pups, but I try my hardest and always make it a new adventure for any pup I care for! Boardings are no problem, Oakley and I love new friends and can’t wait to meet your little (or BIG) ones!! Much love for all breeds all sizes all ages :)

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.
