“Care from a life long dog owner”

Hi there! My name is Eddie, and I can’t wait to meet your pup. I’ve been on wag! since 2018 and I’ve fallen in love with all the dogs I’ve been able to care for. My dog, Kota, and I recently moved to RVA with two other friends. We have a spacious back yard that’s fully fenced in and Kota is the friendliest girl I’ve ever met. I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life so caring for them is second nature. The pics in my gallery are of my family’s current dogs but only the small tan pup lives here!

“Preferred Walker - Exceptional Service - Pets 1st”

I enjoy walking dogs, because it combines two of my favorites: dogs and the outdoors. I've been walking dogs for many years now, and I like seeing them enjoy all of the smells, sights and sounds of a walk. I think that healthy walks are vital to their health and wellbeing. I'm looking forward to walking your pup(s). I always strive to give 5 star service, so if you think of anything that would make the walk exceptional, please don't hesitate to let me know. Thank You!

Dog Walking in Winterpock

Winterpock is a small unincorporated community in eastern Virginia. Seated in Chesterfield County, this community doesn’t have much to offer dog owners other than about 30 vet clinics within 13 miles. However, there are countless amenities available in Richmond, which is just a quick 20-minute drive from Winterpock.

Some of the most popular dog-friendly activities nearby are dog parks. Forest Hill Park, just 30 minutes northeast, is in the heart of Richmond. Clean and situated on a lake, this park is complete with a running trail and a gorgeous, flowing creek. Harry D. Daniel Park, just 20 minutes east of Winterpock, is packed with trails for walking or jogging alongside Fido, and there’s even a playground!

If you’re not in the mood for a trip to the park, consider South of the James Market. This farmers' market is open every Saturday of the year, come “rain or shine,” on 42nd St New Kent Avenue in Richmond. This market is known for being particularly dog-friendly, so be sure to bring Fido down “South of the James” River to enjoy live music, snack on food-truck treats, and support local artisans.

Although Winterpock itself is small, it’s definitely within reach of some fantastic parks and activities in neighboring communities. Pawesome!
