Hello! I am Yvonne. When I am not walking dogs, I am an operational meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force. I moved back home to the Wilmington, DE area about 5 years ago after serving in San Diego, Boise, and the Seattle area. I love all animals. While I do admit that cats were my first love, it was not until 2004 when I got my first dog, a pug named Monster, and I became a dog person. After Monster, I rescued another pug from a shelter. His name was Budda. They have since passed. Currently I own a Bedlington Terrier named Payton. I have no children, so she is my "baby" and love of my life. Aside from owning dogs, I have had various roommates that owned dogs, Labs and Corgis. I have volunteered with shelters and pug rescues across the country. I worked part time at Fetch as a dog walker/pet sitter in Boise, ID. I love to run and be outdoors so dog walking is perfect for me. I am very excited to meet you and your wonderful pets!

Dog enthusiast and lover. I grew up with two Golden Retrievers and my family now has a Spanish Water Dog! I love to walk our dog (Taffy) around the neighborhood or take her to the park every now and then. Great with animals and people. I'm a university student trying to make a little extra money to put into my savings for loan repayment and what better way than to meet and walk some furry friends?! I've worked with dogs of all sizes, so all are welcome (and encouraged).

Dog Walking in Bear

Once a small farming community, the city of Bear is now a popular shopping and housing district near Wilmington, DE. Dog owners enjoy the area for its proximity to the Delaware River and the outdoor activities available nearby. Llangollen Park is a beautiful community with a quiet park where Fido can romp and roam through the grassy area and work off some excess energy. Another option when walking your pooch is Buckley Park where you can walk laps around the tennis courts and enjoy the fresh air, or relax on a bench after refilling your water bottles at the drinking fountain.

Skilled doctors and staff at three veterinarian clinics in Bear offer the best medical care for your furry family members. Whether you need emergency care after hours or a routine appointment, you will not have to look far to find caring and compassionate technicians to take care of Fido. After taking your pooch for his shots at the vet, you might want to stop by Dairy Queen for an ice cream and pamper your pup at one of the outdoor tables.

If you are looking for a more substantial meal after a day out with the family, Zoes Kitchen is a casual restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine. You and your pup can relax on the outdoor patio and enjoy chatting with family and friends. When looking for a pet-friendly place to stay the night, Best Western Plus allows pups for an additional fee. Just make sure to call ahead and reserve on of the pet-friendly rooms.
