Hello. I am Yvonne. When I am not walking dogs, I am an operational meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force. While I do admit that cats were my first love, in 2004 I got my first dog, a pug named Monster. I then 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 volunteered with various shelters and pug rescues across the country. Can’t wait to meet your dog!

“Happy Tailz”

Hi, my name is Sherry. I have always had pets. Dogs, cats and parrots. I groomed dogs for 2 years. I know that our pets are family. They are pure love and deserve the same from us. Your dog will always be cared for as if my own. Nothing less! I have a spacious, clean, smoke-free home. Lots of room for play. Your dog is welcome in my home or just a walk around the neighborhood. I know it's hard to leave them. I will always give them reassurance, care and love.

“I love dogs so much that I adopted my own!”

I grew up around dogs and just recently adopted one of my own! I love to walk mine and my family’s dogs around the neighborhood and take them on the occasional hike. My new dog is full of energy so he’ll actually come running with me while I bike! Great with animals and people. I'm a grad student trying to make a little extra money for loan repayment and what better way than to meet and walk some furry friends?! I've worked with dogs of all sizes (5-150 pounds!).

From the day I was born I've lived with anywhere from 1-6 dogs in my house. My first dog, Becky, was my first love. I currently care for four - three of whom are named for Harry Potter characters (Lily, Luna, and Sirius.)I've had everything from pomeranians to greyhounds, and I've cared for my brother's German Shepherd as well - so I'm accustomed to dogs of all shapes, sizes, and energy levels.

“Dogs leave paw prints on your heart.”

Hello dog lovers! I have owned an active dog who loved long walks and runs, a dog who preferred shorter walks, a fearful dog, a friendly dog, and a reactive dog. I volunteer as a dog walker at a shelter where I have been provided training classes including behaviorial, manners, impulsive, and social. I have walked dogs twice the size of me who jumped, tugged, and mouthed, so if you have an excitable dog, I'm your girl! Whether you have a dog who loves long or quick walks, I got you!

I have cared for and owned dogs of all sizes and personalities from Yorkshire terriers to st. Bernard's and Great Danes, and friendly to everyone to extremely selective. I am comfortable with ANY size and type of dog! I also understand no two dogs are the same and they have their own personalities as much as humans do and feel I can properly adjust to accommodate the different personalities and needs of most dogs!! I currently have an extremely friendly golden retriever, a border collie/Aussie mix that loves anyone (especially if they will play ball or tug), a selectively friendly German shepherd who takes a little bit more time to get comfortable with people and a Belgian Malinois who has to be introduced to new people properly but once she is you will be her best friend for life.

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!

The New Castle Industrial Track Trail is also dog-friendly, with over 3.7 miles of asphalt to use. The trail extends south, with nice views of the surrounding city, but owners will have to remember to bring water and clean-up bags.
