Heidi's review on Oct 15, 2019
Corinne was fantastic! I got tons of photos and videos. And my pup got tons of belly rubs. My dog also loved staying with Corinne because she had carpet for my senior pup to walk and lay on.

Connor was great with our fur baby! Lola was always happy in the pictures and the videos I received! She was safe and well taken care of. She was definitely spoiled. His backyard is every dogs dream, green grass and very well kept! Definitely taking Lola back on our next trip.

Kieran was great with Ellie. She showed up on time while I was at work. She even brought her dog, Cookie, to help run some energy out of her! Kieran kept in contact with me before, throughout, and after the visit! I highly recommend her.
Top Dog Parks in Marietta
East of downtown Marietta at 3322 Roswell Road, East Cobb Park is a great community park. It was originally created by community members coming together to form the Friends of East Cobb Park, who raised the funds necessary to buy the 13 acres to create the park. East Cobb Park is one of the most heavily used parks in Cobb County, with a large covered picnic pavilion, open grass areas, and creeks to explore. For dogs and their owners (or sitters), East Cobb Park provides 1.2 miles of trails to walk through, so it’s a great spot for a moderate to easy walk for almost all dogs.
Next to Marietta’s Dobbins Air Reserve Base at 75 South Cobb Drive, you will find a 45-acre park called A.L. Burruss Nature Park. (Note: To avoid a dangerous left turn, be sure to enter the park from the westbound lane of South Cobb Drive.) Named after Al Burruss, a prominent political figure in Cobb County who passed away from pancreatic cancer, it has a little something for everyone, with walking and biking trails, a picnic area, and more. If you want to take your dog on a walk, this is a great park to do so, as there are several small trails to hike that equal about 1.2 miles total. As long as you keep your dog on leash, you can have a fun outing with them at A.L. Burruss Nature Park.
If you’re looking for a neighborhood park in the heart of Marietta, check out Laurel Park at 151 Manning Road. Its 25 acres are well-used, with 13 lighted tennis courts, a one-mile paved track, a duck pond, picnic areas, a sand volleyball court, and basketball courts. Want to host a dog and dog parent party? Rent one of two pavilions—equipped with grills and tables. Dogs and their owners will enjoy walking around the grassy areas, maybe even observing the ducks, or taking a spin (or two or three) around the one-mile track. Various tennis events are also hosted at Laurel Park, including tennis lessons, camps, and the Marietta Gran Prix Tournament Series.
Do you enjoy learning about the past? Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park—at 905 Kennesaw Mountain Drive—is a must-visit for history buffs. Kennesaw Mountain was home to some of the heaviest fighting in the Atlanta area during the Civil War, and the area around the fighting was officially designated a national battlefield park in 1935. Visitors can now come to the 2,884-acre park and learn about the history of the area and the Civil War battles that were fought there. With over 17 miles of trails to explore, it’s one of the best parks in the area for dogs and their owners who enjoy hiking and trail-blazing.
Marietta's Bark Score
How Marietta got their Bark Score
We love crunching numbers almost as much as we love caring for dogs, which is why we came up with the Bark Score. It's all about how dog-friendly a city is, and is determined using census statistics, local business information, and our own data. Marietta received a 61 out of 100 in vet availability, which includes the number of emergency veterinarians, regular vets, specialists, and the average premium for pet insurance in the area. For pet services—like groomers available, number of dog trainers, and count of Rover sitters—this city earned a 79. For the parks and fun category, Marietta received a 74 for its number of dog parks, sunny days, and dog-friendly restaurants and hotels. And last but not least, for quality of dog life which includes overall dog population, average yard size, and number of dog-friendly property rentals, this city earned a 70.

Officially recognized as a town in 1834, it was named after U.S. Representative Thomas Willis Cobb’s wife, Marietta. Like most towns of the time, Marietta was designed with a town square in the center and a modest courthouse nearby, which today is known as Marietta Square. Marietta was also initially selected as a hub for the new Western and Atlantic railroad. Even though it was later moved to Atlanta, the railroad’s presence still provided plenty of benefits to Marietta. The Civil War reached Marietta in the summer of 1864, with General William Tecumseh Sherman invading the town during what was to be known as the Atlanta Campaign. In November 1864, General Hugh Kilpatrick set Marietta on fire, the first strike in Sherman’s battle strategy March to the Sea. Thankfully, Marietta recovered from the fires, and today is known as one of Georgia’s best places to live.
