I currently own a 10 yr. old Dalmatian Mix (Bella) and 6 yr. old German Shepherd (Rex), and have had them both since they were puppies. I am experienced with the care it takes to train/raise a dog from the puppy phase to a full-grown companion! Everything that a pet owner can go through, I have gone through myself, so I feel very comfortable handling all types and sizes of dogs, and providing exceptional care when I get the opportunity to take your best friend for a walk/run! I can do walks in your neighborhood, drive them to a nearby dog park or play with them in your own home. What works best for you and your dog is my top priority! I hope to hear from you!

I am a dog lover with a high energy lifestyle. In the past, I have been a proud owner of a loved Shih Tzu and Springer Spaniel mix. This difference in each breed has shown me how different each dog's need can be especially when it comes to exercise. I love getting out of the house and going for jogs or walks, going with a dog only makes it that much more fun. Currently, I pet sit 3 young Pekingese mixes. As a college student, my schedule is very flexible! I look forward to helping give your dog the care they deserve.

Hello! I am looking forward to spending time on walks with your fur buddy! We rescued our Sheltie/Cocker Spaniel, Sookie, 8 years ago. She was extremely timid and temperamental but quickly grew comfortable with us during our 2-hour car ride home! I enjoy seeing Sookie's happiness with her daily walks and am excited to experience that same happiness with your dog.

Dog Walking in Racine

Racine, Wisconsin, finds itself at the Root River estuary and adjacent to Lake Michigan. The fair-sized city is at an acceptable distance from important hubs and is surrounded by nature. The city is an attractive place to live and visit for various reasons, including the lake.

The city of Racine has a lot of offer for dog owners as well. The more adventurous and enterprising can explore the surrounding woods. There is the Pike River Pathway for a shorter hike through nature. John's Dock and Freddie's Friki Tiki, two restaurant/bars in town, offer a magnificent view over Lake Michigan and are dog-friendly to boot.

Racine also has its own off-leash dog park, Johnson Dog Park. This park is huge compared to most dog parks; Johnson Dog Park offers 28 acres of space for dogs to run around and explore. There is a large variety in landscapes, from woodlands to open fields. Dogs can also go for a swim in the pond or the river.

The city offers plenty lodging opportunities for travelers with pets who just want to visit Racine for a short time. There are the budget friendly options, such as Super 8 and Knights Inn, as well as more luxurious pet-friendly rooms in town.

This neighborhood in the town of Mt/ Pleasant is home to the Pike River Pathway, a lovely, dog-friendly, Greenway style system of multi-use trails that straddle the Pike River. There is plentiful parking in 2 conveniently located lots, and the roomy trail surface is asphalt, allowing for bikes, running, and walking. Dogs love it here because it is also home to numerous species of wildlife, including frogs and birds in the adjacent wetlands, which is why they need to remain leashed on the trail. What an interesting placed for our super-sniffer canine companions to explore! This gem provides access to hundreds of acres of the reconstructed Pike River corridor.
