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!

“Let’s walk!”

I am the mom of a 5 yr old rescue pup, a Boxer/Beagle mix from West Virginia. I work as a volunteer for a Golden Retriever Rescue Group in MD. I have owned dogs my entire life and I think dogs are the sweetest, most incredible creatures on the planet! . I would love to be the bright spot to your dog's day by showing up to take him or her out for a mid-day walk. I look forward to meeting lots of fun fur-friends!

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!
