Hi! My name is Tammy, I work from early morning to afternoon ( Monday through Friday) and was looking for something to fill up my empty time! I volunteer every other weekend at an animal shelter. I am used to being around dogs, meeting and greeting new ones, and taking them on walks and giving them baths. I have 4 pups of my own that my husband and I have trained! I love working with animals and meeting new ones are always fun! I’m pretty much available all week!

“Love them all!”

I love meeting new dogs and giving them a great time outdoors! My own dog is deaf and blind so I'm experienced with special needs dogs. I also foster for a local rescue so I'm also experienced with dogs of all backgrounds.

Dog Walking in St Albans

St. Albans in Kanawha County, West Virginia, lies at confluence of the Kanawha and Coal Rivers. It is a lovely spot to spend time with your pup, with many pet-friendly parks to explore close by. There are two animal hospitals in town, so you can rest easy knowing your beloved companion is in safe hands should he fall ill.

St Albans City Park, right in the heart of town, has a dedicated dog park you must visit.With two fenced sections dividing pups by size, everyone can feel safe and have a great time here. Waste bags are provided on site, but you will need to bring your own water and drinking bowl for your pet. Once your pooch is ready to go back on the lead, don’t hurry, spend some time walking around the paved trails in St Albans Park. Afterwards, stop for a picnic lunch under the shady trees or play a game of catch on the grass. There is also a playground here, as well as ball fields for the kids to enjoy.

With the water so close, there is no shortage of opportunities for scenic walks. Take you pup for an on-lead walk through town and down to the river, and seek out the suspension bridge over the Coal River in the southern section of town which provides a lovely photo opportunity too.

These are just a couple of things to do with your pet in Saint Albans. So, what are you waiting for – go out and explore!

Rosie the Riveter Park is a green strip of space between the road and the Kanawha River that is well-maintained and a lovely place to come for a walk along the water. A paved path extends along the river’s edge and there are benches to sit at that overlook the scenic waterway. Seek out the small memorial to the American women who worked on the home front during WWII, for whom Rosie’s is named. East along the river is the Roadside Park Port of St. Albans where you will find picnic shelters and grills, a playground and restrooms. Keep your pup on a leash here, especially as these parks are close to a busy road, and please clean up any mess he leaves behind.

Five miles north of Saint Albans in Nitro you will find a pawriffic park to visit known as the Ridenour Memorial Park. This park is puppy heaven, as there is a dedicated dog park within the grounds where your buddy can burn off some steam free of the lead. If you have a small pup, there is a separate area for him where he can play with similar-sized friends. Entry to this dog park is free too! Afterwards, pop your pup back on the lead for a little walk around the surrounding park’s grounds. There is a lovely trail surrounding the fishing lake and a choice of nature trails in the adjacent wooded area. For even more park fun up this way, check out Nitro City Park, just over a mile away on the Kanawha River.

Shawnee Regional Park is over the Kanawha River from Saint Albans, just over six miles by car and covers 127 acres. This park has a great paved walking track around the lake to traverse with your pet for an easy, pleasant stroll, or wander along the creek that runs through the grounds.  There is lots of shade here as well as tables and shelters for picnics or just sitting to enjoy the view over the water. Basketball courts and ball fields here will give the kids something else to do too. As this is a busy public park, keep your pet leashed at all times and make sure you bring your waste disposal bags.

Wine Cellar Park in nearby Dunbar, just seven miles by car from Saint Albans, is a fascinating little park to visit. The main drawcard here are the old stone wine cellars from around 1860, built before the Civil War when the area had a thriving wine industry. No longer in use, these cellars pride an interesting glimpse into days gone by. They can be found on the opposite side of the road from the park signpost. There are also some beautiful nature trails here, a path from the cellars to the lake, a creek to explore and many lovely little groves to set down for a picnic. Keep your pet leashed here and always clean up after him. Bring bug spray in the warmer weather as the locals can be quite friendly!
