“Animal welfare is my full time job!”

I grew up with dogs and have always had them in my life. Since moving 3 years ago, I travel a lot for work and am not able to have my own. I'm hoping to be friends with your dog to help fill that gap! I love being outdoors and spending time with animals, so walking dogs is one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. I work full time in animal welfare, but frequently walk pups during my lunch time. I have a background in surgical support, IV administration, oral med admin, and critical care.

I have owned a dog/dogs for my entire life. Currently I have 2 rescue dogs who I have had since they were pups and they are both 13 years old. I enjoy going on walks/hikes to keep active and they are always more enjoyable with a furry companion.

Hi, I'm Cassie. I grew up on a farm and have been around lots of animals my whole life. We always had dogs. My first dog was a collie mix named Cassandra she would steal our popcorn if we weren't careful. Then we had Lady, a lab pit-bull mix, and Sunshine, a husky border collie mix. My sister and I took these dogs on 2 miles walks every day during the summer. The last two dogs I had before I moved were Ariel, a boxer mix and Belle, an Australian Sheppard mix. Belle loves her belly being scratched and Ariel could run for days. I have also watched family and friends dogs and taken them for walks and made sure they had food and water. I also volunteered at the Green County Humane Society.

On top of growing up in a dog home, I have been a proud dog dad myself for over 13 years. I could count on fingers and toes the number of days I have been without a furry friend by my side over that time. We've lived in Milwaukee, Boston, Charlotte, and Chicago before landing in Columbus and have walked through parks and busy neighborhoods alike. I love seeing that happy smile on their faces after some exercise and sniffing time.

Dog Walking in Poynette

Peaceful, charming and family-friendly, Poynette, WI is one of the only towns in America to have been named as a result of poor penmanship. The town was to be named for Pierre Paquette, a fur trader, scout and interpreter who worked on the rivers in the region in the 1800s -- however, when the city was incorporated, the name was read as Poynette, and it stuck! 

The town pays homage to its heritage by maintaining its historic downtown, a quaint and picturesque district where the locally-owned businesses only add to the village vibe. These days, Poynette is known as a quiet bedroom community for the nearby city of Madison -- and as the home of the some of the best trout fishing in the state! Poynette may be small, but there’s certainly room for a veterinary clinic, and 24-hour care is available right in town.

Poynette doesn’t have its own dog park, but that doesn’t mean that you and your buddy are bound to be bored! Veterans Park has some pawesome wooded trails ideal for leashed walks, and you’ll find some fur-friendly hiking options close by. You might have to drive a little to get the best for your buddy, but you two will find plenty of opportunities for off-leash adventures just a bit fur-ther afield!

Jamieson Park is a real mutts-visit! Located just one mile west of downtown Poynette, Jamieson Park contains 45 acres of wooded wonderland. Not only that, but the park has access to the Rowan Creek Trail! This 3-mile out-and-back trail runs through forest, prairie and wetlands along the banks of the creek, and it doesn’t have much of an incline, making the walk suitable for all ages and abilities. Be sure to bring bug spray in the summer, though, or you and your pooch will be scratching all the way home!

Fitter furry friends and owners in search of a more strenuous hike might want to check out Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area. Make no bones about it -- if you two are looking for a challenge, you’ll find one here! Gibraltar Rock is part of Wisconsin’s 1,000-mile Ice Age Trail, which features gorgeous glacial lakes and interesting rock formations. Make it to the top and you and your pooch will be rewarded with a breathtaking view over almost all of Columbia County. Your pooch will need to be leashed, of course, and remember to bring your own bags and water!

You’ll need to drive all the way to Burke to get to a fenced-in area where your furry friend can run free, but once your pooch is let loose in the dog park at Token Creek County Park, you two might decide that the twenty-minute trip was worth it! The park is huge -- there’s plenty of room in both the small and large dog area for your pup to leap about and tire themselves out in, and the park provides agility equipment for extra canine cardio! Bags are provided, but there’s no running water -- you’ll need to bring your own bottle.

Pooches and owners looking for a more sedate stroll might enjoy the Upper Yahara River Trail in Deforest, a flat, 2.5-mile paved trail that meanders along the banks of the Yahara River through peaceful woodland. A pretty place for you two to stretch your legs at any time of the year, this trail is extra special in fall, when the trees burst into a riot of color that needs to be seen to be believed! After you two are all walked out, consider stopping by at Norske Nook. This furrific local cafe does a delicious tart cherry pie, and welcomes wagging tails at outdoor tables.

Shamrock Dog Park is managed by the veterinary clinic next door, so you know your pooch is in good hands! The park has two acres of green space for your fur ball to run around and tire themselves out in. Not only that, but the lot also gets plenty of shade, so you can let your pup leap about to their heart’s content without worrying about them overheating in the summer. Bags and water are provided, so just bring your furry friend and some toys and prepare to play. There’s a $2 admission charge, but if that’s not a deal-breaker for you, you’d be barking mad not to go!
