I grew up with a dog named Terry in Virginia Beach, VA for the first 18 years of my life. I currently am a board member of the Norfolk SPCA and own a cat named noraA. I enjoy watching my best friend's two Golden Retrievers when he goes out of town as well as my sister's three Boston Terriers when she goes out of town. I already walk between 10-15 miles per day on my own so the opportunity to combine my love of dogs and walking is very exciting to me.

Hi, I'm Krystal! I come from a large family, and that includes our pets. Growing up, becoming a vet was my dream job. Although I chose a career in art later in life, I have cared for a variety of animals and pups are definitely one of my favorites! I have experience with dogs (cats too!) of all breeds, sizes, and personalities. I can not wait to work with you and your furry friends!

Dog Walking in Suffolk

Suffolk is an independent city in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area. Not only does it hold the title of Virginia’s largest city, it also has an abundance of natural beauty. Dogs living in this neck of the woods are lucky to be around lakes, rivers, rolling hills, and forests. This town also takes canine health very seriously, offering seven veterinary clinics scattered throughout the city. 

Your pooch will be happy to know that Suffolk is home to several regional and neighborhood parks. Be sure to check out Bennett’s Creek Park. This 57 acre park sits right on a horseshoe bend of Bennett’s Creek. Two legged patrons can take advantage of the disc golf course, tennis courts or fishing docks. Four legged guests will prefer to check out the nature trails that meander through the woods and near the creek. 

If Suffolk is just a stop on your itinerary, you’ll be pleased to know that there are four pet friendly hotels in town. Econo Lodge is a great option if you’re traveling with a petit pooch. Days Inn and TownPlace Suites by Marriott both welcome dogs of all sizes. Motel 6 also allows larger breeds. With so many choices, you’ll definitely find a place to bunk with your buddy.

The Lake Meade Dog Park is the community canine gathering spot, located inside Lake Meade Park. Take your pooch over for some nonstop fun. She can dash around the park with her new playmates or just sniff around on her own. If she’s athletic, the agility equipment will be right up her alley. Small dogs have their own area to play, and there are plenty of benches for pet parents. Before using the park, dogs must be registered with Suffolk Parks and Recreation. When your pal is finished playing, clip on her leash and cool her down with a walk around the nature trail outside the dog park.

Fill your backpack with snacks, water, and a leash, and take your furry friend over to the Lone Star Lake Park for an adventure. This gorgeous park is made of 11 freshwater lakes, saltwater creeks, and plenty of nature trails.  Follow the four miles of gravel roads that weave in and out of the park. Or, for something a bit more rugged, venture down one of the nature paths. Long Leaf Pine Trail and Doubledecker Trail run near the Southern Lakes. The Field Trail leads you past a wildlife habitat enhancement area. This park will definitely make your pup’s tail wag!

Is your dog begging for a walk? Clip on his leash and head over to Sleepy Hole Park. Situated right on the banks of the Nansemond River, this park is full to the brim with natural beauty. Your pup will be thrilled to get his exercise in such a pawsome setting. Follow the nature trail and bask in the amazing views of the river. As you explore the shoreline, look closely for critters. Chances are you’ll see some crabs, turtles, snails, and a variety of birds. Picnic facilities are available. Bring a lunch, and some biscuits for your pup, and stay awhile.

For a truly unique experience, take your four legged friend to the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Don’t be fooled by the name, this place is anything but dismal. Lake Drummond sits in the heart of this beautiful 112,000 acre refuge. Your pooch will truly be amazed as she explores the forests, marshes, and bogs. A large network of trails allows you to discover the area while also giving your pup some much needed exercise. Trails range in length and can be either gravel road or nature paths. Hundreds of creatures call this place home, so keep your eyes peeled for birds, otters, raccoons, and bears. Oh my!

Cypress Park is a perfect place to spend some time with your furry BFF.  Grab your pup’s leash and head over for some doggy cardio. Walk, jog, or run some laps around the fully paved .32 mile loop trail. After your workout, cool down with a walk through the nearby woods or open lawn area. The park also features a horseshoe pit, playground, and swimming pool. For a change of scenery, head over to the nearby Colburn Park. Your pal can wander through the trees looking for the perfect stick. Picnic shelters are available, so bring a lunch (and some treats for your pup) and stay awhile.
