Who Let the Dogs Out?

Let Your Dogs Out!

Our family has resided in Mentor-on-the-Lake, Ohio along the scenic Lake Erie coastline for more than twenty years. We have a large, fenced yard, big enough to wear out our two dogs and their occasional doggie friends with frequent games of fetch and are located near several wonderful dog-friendly parks, including Mentor Beach Park, Mentor Lagoons Nature Preserve, and Veterans Memorial Park

Within walking distance, our 450-acre nature preserve features the largest unbroken bluff forest in Northeast Ohio; along with a gorgeous, thinly-populated, still-wild beach where our dogs have spent many fun-packed hours running along the shore, and for dogs who love the water, swimming during the warm summer months.
The 100-acre Veterans Memorial Park is also within walking distance from our home, with winding trails that loop in and out of woods and native wetlands, and which boasts over 800 feet of beautiful boardwalk. Young Tom Sawyer fishermen with their stick poles and seasoned fishermen alike gather on the piers at Granger Pond, the largest inland lake in Lake County stocked regularly with catfish, bass, bluegill and rainbow trout. There, along the pond’s sandy banks, local dogs soak up the sights after a long hike and watch the geese, ducks, Trumpeter Swans, and solitary Great Blue Heron. Herds of white-tailed deer and their adorable spotted babies are also ubiquitous in our area and can be glimpsed at both the preserve and Veterans Park.
All three parks are so close to our home, they feel like an extension of our own back yard and provide exceptional year-round invigorating exercise, exploration, and play.

Her love of animals has naturally carried over into her writing. "Dog," one of her many award winning poems, is featured on this web site under Fun Facts, Quotes and Poetry; and the novel she is currently at work on is informed in part by her love of animals.

FYI: All dogs, regardless of size or breed, need to be taken on daily walks!  Walking is one of the most necessary daily routines for your dogs' mental and overall health and well being. Dogs are naturally and instinctively walker/travelers. Dog packs rise in the morning and start trekking right off.   Large back yards, dog parks, and dog daycares may provide adequate space to exercise your pet but cannot extinguish a dog's natural drive to walk.

According to Cesar Millan, a dog's back yard "is like a large fish bowl in which they are trapped inside. Fish swim, birds fly and dogs walk. Having a dog should not be about only fulfilling our human needs; we owe it to our dogs to give them what THEY need." 

Let Lake County Dog Walkers & Pet-Sitting Services help you give your dogs what they need!  Your dogs will love YOU for it!

FYI: We, at Lake County Dog Walkers & Pet-Sitting Services, value our dog walkers and pet caregivers and want you to know that 100% percent of every client fee goes directly to your walker/pet caregiver, for their time spent caring for and loving your pets, and for their fuel and drive time to and from your homes.

We pay our walkers and pet caregivers the most generous fair wage, because they're the best in the business, and their experience, outstanding dedication, and abundant TLC showered on every dog, cat, bunny, bird, fish, etc. is, well, priceless!
