Always such a pleasure to have Mimi take care of the girls! She goes above and beyond, I never worry about a thing!
Andrea is so reliable, flexible and wonderful with our boy! So grateful to have her !!!
Erin does a great job with our little girl and always makes sure she gets plenty of activity during her walks!
Sarah is awesome. She is everything and more than anyone would want for a walker or anything related to your pup. I am beyond thrilled for both Hank and I.
She just gets hot! I think the way you went is usually where we go. There are some side streets across the street as well. Thank you!
I know Zoey is in good hands when Shyanne goes to visit! She is punctual and follows all instructions to take care of my rambunctious puppy
She was very patient with my 60lb pitbull and sent me picture updates of them cuddling!
The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Portsmouth
Doggie Paddle Plunge
Ready, set, run - splash, brrrrrr...and shake it off - all to help save lives for the New Hampshire SPCA at the Doggie Paddle Plunge! You can "freeze your tail off" for the sake of dogs at this February plunge into the Atlantic Ocean off of the seacoast of the nearby New Castle Great Island Common, just 3 miles from Portsmouth. If you don't like getting wet and cold, you can opt to be a virtual plunger. While you are off the leash for your great plunge, your pooch must wait on the beach.
South Mill Dog Pond Park
This park has a double fenced area where dogs of all sizes can go off leash to play together. There is also an unfenced area at the west end of the pond where dogs can have more space to run and have adventures off the leash. Take your pooch down Pleasant Street and you will find the pond in the middle of the park. The pond has a natural beauty that you and your best friend can take in as you enjoy your time together. The Pierce Island nearby is a special treat but check the status of construction as this may impact your access with a pet.
"Bone" Appetit and Shop 'til You Drop
Portsmouth is a dog-friendly city with 20 restaurants where you can dine with your pet at outdoor tables. Hot Diggity Dawg! The range of food and libations is incredible - from gourmet restaurants to craft beer to Irish pub fare and beyond - there are plenty of choices for the foodie with Fido. You can wander from the waterfront to downtown, taking in the charming brick architecture. The city is so dog-friendly that you will find many shops that welcome four-legged visitors as well. Some are even known for offering a treat and water bowl to your dog while you shop or enjoy your meal!
Known as the "furriest event in New Hampshire, the Paws Walk is a fund-raising event for the New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The two-mile walk is held in June at the Stratham Hill Park. The event brings out over 2000 people and hundreds of dogs! More than just a walk in the "bark", the day is a celebration with vendors, food, demonstrations, and contests. The build-a-pet-house contest brings out creative housing for hounds! If you raise $25.00, you will get a t-shirt. It's a fun day for a great "paws".
