“Full time. Any dog. Any weather. Extended hours :)”

Dog walking is my life! I can read dogs very well and quickly gain their trust and obedience. I’m great with high energy dogs, stubborn dogs, dogs that pull, dogs that snap, escape artists, dogs with dominance issues, dogs with triggers, handling multiple dogs at once and any other scenario concerning safety. I’m gentle, affectionate, attentive, protective, and caring and will provide the perfect experience no matter your dog’s size, breed, or temperament. Thanks for choosing me as your walker!

I've always loved animals from a young age. My pets are an extension of my family. I have a 3 years old Lab Mix puppy and 3 year cat too. Both were rescued and have grown up together. I've learned a lot from them about patience, affection, discipline and how to care for their well-being. I would take good care of your dog as if he or she were my own.

Let your pooch stretch their legs at the Dominion View Park on Stablehouse Drive! This minimally furnished, roadside park is equipped with a bench, small playground, and basketball court.

Tucked in an older neighborhood, the Gwen Thompson Briar Patch Park features three kids' playgrounds, making it a popular destination among local families. While it is best-known for its play areas, this 5-acre park also contains a walking path, picnic pavilion, creek, and athletic courts. Benches are scattered around the site as well, giving visitors various spots to sit and relax. Note that shade at the Gwen Thompson Briar Patch Park is limited, so early morning and late afternoon are probably the best times to stop by. Bring water to keep your pooch hydrated, as there are no drinking fountains on-site.

This neighborhood contains a few pet-friendly restaurants that let Fido tag along while you grab a bite to eat. One of these is Santini's New York Style Deli, a casual Italian eatery that serves pizza, subs, salads, and more. Here, you can share an outdoor table with your furry pal on their partially gated sidewalk cafe. If you feel like having Lebanese cuisine instead, stop by the Sahara Restaurant and Hookah Lounge for some falafel and kababs. Sahara offers a spacious alfresco dining area where you can enjoy your meal with your pup by your side. Santini's and Sahara are both located in the Clock Tower Shopping Center.
