“Your dog’s best friend when you can’t be there”

I am passionate about dogs and have raised and loved multiple medium to large breed dogs over the past 30 years. My current baby is an active 87 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback, the second Rhodesian I have raised from puppyhood. I tailor my level of effort to your dog’s needs and specialize in high energy dogs who enjoy a faster pace. I treat each of my dog clients as if they were my own and have a proven WAG! track record of being 100% reliable, giving above and beyond care to my clients on every walk.

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.

Hey, my name is Eli and I love animals and the outdoors! I grew up interacting with all kinds of animals in the South Miami area from house pets like dogs and cats to the local wild animals like ducks, turtles, and iguanas.

Dog Walking in Virginia Beach

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Your good dog could act out if they don’t get enough physical and mental exercise. If left home with too much energy, dogs can start to chew or dig their way to fun. Don’t let boredom get the best of your pup, take them for daily walks to work out those wiggles and stimulate their minds. Whether a stroll around the block or along the Oceanfront boardwalk, your dog will be a happy pooch when they are home.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

We all need to be active to stay healthy, and the same is true for our canines. Frequent exercise can keep your dog’s joints limber while decreasing their risk of arthritis, diabetes and heart disease. You can both stay in shape and increase your active years together with regular walks. Take a long walk on one of the city’s dog-friendly beaches to get a gorgeous view with your cardio.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

It’s always more fun to play with friends than by yourself, but for dogs, its good for them too! Spending time with other dogs teaches your furry bestie how to safely interact with others. Meeting new people and pups on daily walks or visits to  Virginia Beach’s dog parks can also build confidence, which can help your dog tackle any situation life will throw at them.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Virginia Beach

Whether you live in Resort City, or are just visiting, your dog doesn’t want to miss the adventure. Several services offer walks to get your dog moving at various rates. Short 15-minute strolls average around $15, while longer 60-minute walks can be as much as $38. Some companies only work weekdays during mid-day hours, and evening walks or last-minute walks booked within 24 hours could tack on additional fees that can range from $6 to $15.

Your dog can get the exercise they need every day of the week, all day long with Wag! Thoroughly vetted and insured dog walkers with Wag! are ready to get your pup out and about on a 20-minute walk for $15, a 30-minute meander for $20, or a 60-minute trek for just $30. There aren’t any extra fees for last minute walks when you choose on-demand, and walks are always the same price no matter the day or time. And if your dog’s energy is a force to be reckoned with, booking multiple walks in advance can save you 15%.

You can even keep an eye on your dog with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. Got a finicky pup? A report card at the end of each walk will let you know how much fun they actually had on their day out.

Dog Parks in Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach is the pawfect spot to relax and unwind with your best bud by your side. Start your adventure in furbulous North Virginia Beach where you can hike and picnic in the 3,000-acre First Landing State Park. This sprawling green space at the northern tip of the city offers 19 miles of trails, and the dog-friendly Chesapeake Bay Beach where you both can romp in the sand and cool off in the ocean.

To the west past the park’s boundaries, dogs can also get in some fun in the sun onChic’s Beach. Dig your paws in the white sand and keep an eye out for dolphins in the bay.

Dominated by the local golf club, the small Bayville neighborhood offers a playground for pups at the Bayville Farms Park. Featuring sports fields and grilling areas galore, your dog will run to the off-leash dog park with its small dog section and available drinking water.

The Dam Neck area near the Naval Air Station is pupular for its close proximity to the water, but dogs know it as home to the Red Wing Metra Dog Park. This open 1-acre space is fenced, and features grass, mature shade trees, water spigots and a host of other amenities.

Get away from the crowds in Sandbridge, a secluded area of beaches and preserved nature in the southern tip of Virginia Beach. Serious hikers can enjoy oceanfront trails in the False Cape State Park, which also offers camping and boating. For the sand, head to Sandbridge Beach near the residential area. With sand dunes to climb and the Atlantic Ocean to dip in, your dog will have a blast.

During the off-season months in Virginia Beach, dogs can enjoy the city’s public beaches and boardwalks anytime, and can even romp off leash on many beaches. But during the busy summer season, from the Friday before Memorial Day to Labor Day, dogs are only allowed on beaches north of 42nd Street and in the southern Sandbridge area. In these areas, dogs are only allowed before 10 AM and after 6 PM, on leash at all times. Always keep your dog leashed outside of any off-leash areas, and have clean-up bags on hand to promptly pick up after your pooch. Your dog should also be fully vaccinated and licensed with tags on their collars.
