“Professional Pet-sitting Business Owner”

First of all, I adore giving the dogs a lot of attention. I always love the animals, especially dogs. I don’t mind having them being all over me. My first dog named Cubby passed away 4 years ago. He was 9 years old. He was pit bull mixed. Shortly after, I decided to rescue an adult dog named Teddy Bear. He’s American Bulldog mixed with Lab. He was abused by a 10 year old girl with a broomstick. His face was a mess. Even though he was abused, he is a very sweet furbaby! He loves all the people and dogs. I have taught him the sign language. I literally sign to my Teddy Bear. He actually does understand me. For example, the signs (words) that my dog understands, “camping, no, sit, stay, bad, good, drive, walk, potty, eat, treat, come, wait, swim, and so on.” I have a special connection with the dogs because I am deaf. We don’t use the voice to communicate. So, I truly understand their barrier communication with the loved ones. We rely on a sense of intuition to get through everything in life. I truly enjoy walking/hiking with the dogs. I just love to see their tails wagging excitedly! That’s the best part about taking them out for a walk. I’m looking forward to dog walk/dog sit your dogs.

Dog Walking in Ranson

Ranson was previously known as the Corporation of Ranson. This small community is located in Jefferson County in West Virginia, just an hour away from Washington, DC. The city has a very rich history even though it's small in size; thanks to Ranson's mining industry in the 19th century, as well as the bustling industries in the surrounding areas of the Shenandoah Valley, Ranson grew quickly, and only continues to expand. This makes it the pawfect place to be a dog owner!

Despite the small size of the city, you'll find three veterinary clinics in town and nearby to take good care of your barking buddy. Ranson is also a furrific place to chow down with your hound! If you're craving some tortillas while you’re staying in Ranson, make sure to visit California Tortilla. Want some classic pub fare instead? Head to Glory Days Grill. Or, if you just want a quick bite, Ranson is also home to some dog-friendly chain restaurants. Bring a leash and water bowl with you to all establishments.

If you and Fido want to get out of town, take a quick 15-minute trip over to Harper's Ferry, VA. You'd be barking mad to miss Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry, which is a 90-minute tour that will teach you and your pooch all you need to know about Harper's Ferry's haunted history!

Who doesn't want a safe, enclosed place where their puppy can hang out with other well-behaved canines? Un-fur-tunately, Ranson doesn't have any dog parks of its own, but you'll find one 25 miles away in Leesburg, VA. Leesburg Dog Park offers an amazing off-leash area that your dog will appreciate. The ground is covered in mulch, and it can get muddy sometimes, so bring a towel if you don't want muddy paw prints in your car! Benches and picnic tables are available for the comfort of the human visitors, and shade is provided by the multiple trees in the park. Just don't forget to bring doggie waste bags.

Another pawssibility in the vicinity of Ranson is the Winchester Dog Park. You'll need a membership to play here, but daily passes are available for visitors. Your doggie can go wild in this fenced, off-leash area and sniff out some new friends! Nestled within Jim Barnett Park, the dog park provides drinking water and poop baggies for cleaning up your pup's messes. If you prefer to walk your dog on the trails outside of the fenced area, you can do so only if your dog is properly leashed. Within the dog park, there are benches and a picnic table where the humans can chit chat and rest while watching over their pups.

Twenty-three miles away from Ranson, you'll find the State Arboretum of Virginia, which is an extremely beautiful botanical garden. Not only are doggies allowed here, but they're also allowed to be off-leash as long as they're well-behaved! The place is simply magical -- it has open fields to run in, beautiful meadows to admire, and even two lakes to cool off in! The place even has a historical building that you can visit, as well as an herbal garden and plenty of space for a nice picnic with your pup. The arboretum has bathroom facilities for the human visitors, but you'll need to bring your own poop baggies.

If you're a wine lover and you're searching for a place in the vicinity of Ranson where you can enjoy a tasting while in the company of your pupper, you should check out Stone Tower Winery. This winery is located in South Leesburg, around 27 miles away from Ranson. You're allowed to take your leashed dog in the tasting rooms and to hang out both inside and outside the winery while you taste different types of chardonnay, pinot noir, and sauvignon blanc. It's important to keep in mind that all the tastings have to be scheduled, so make sure you make a reservation before embarking on this adventure!
