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 New Castle

New Castle is anything but new, having been around for over 365 years. Even older than this town is the close relationship between man and man's best friend. New Castle cherishes this, and provides residents with one animal hospital and plenty of open spaces for pups to get out, go for a walk, or just socialize with other pups.

The James Rogers Park is the largest in the city, with a soccer and baseball field, basketball court, open space, paved trails, and forested paths. The park is great for going for a walk, with additional features including benches, water fountains, and clean-up stations.

The Coventry Ridge Park is in the northern part of town, and has a large space dedicated to the natural wonders of the area, with a protected landscape of natural oak trees, open fields, and a saltwater pond. The lush area has dirt trails and access to Christina River for fishing. Don't forget to leash up Fido before heading out, and bring some clean-up bags!

Along the Deleware River is the First State National Historical Park, which is part of 7 different sites in Delaware. The New Castle Site provides a gorgeous walking area with picturesque scenes of the water. The paths are paved and sit in the protected forested area along the river. Dogs are welcome while they are on a leash.

From national sites to public parks, the number of dog-friendly places to take Fido are limitless in New Castle!
