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 Newark

Looking for a way to explore Newark, Delaware without leaving your four-legged best friend behind? You and your pooch will not be disappointed once you check out these great parks and trails!

Newark's dog park, Iron Hill Dog Park, is located near the John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway. Providing two separated fenced-in areas for large and small dogs, this park is well-loved due to the friendly regulars. In addition, locals rave about the cleanliness and well-thought out layout of the park, which feats shade trees, benches, and gazebos.

Want to hit the trails? The James F. Hall Trail extends for almost two miles alongside an active railroad track. The paved path is separated from the tracks by a high fence, so there's no need to worry. If you're looking to continue your journey, head north on the Pomeroy and Newark Rail Trail for another 4.4 miles, and then continue to the Creek Road Trail for another couple miles.

During the chilly, yet gorgeous months, of November and December, the Delaware SPCA offers a Pictures with Santa event at the Christiana Mall. Every October, there's a Fall Festival and open house at the local shelter, offering pony rides, refreshments, a photo booth, and even a doggie costume contest!

Although Ironbound does not have any dog parks, that does not mean you cannot take your dog for walks in the beautiful, historic neighborhood. In addition to scenic sidewalks and natural beauty, the neighborhood is home to two parks, Independence Park and Riverbank Park. Independence Park is in the heart of the neighborhood. It has multiple sports fields for softball, bocce, hockey and soccer. It also has multiple paths for walking, running or jogging where you can take your dog! Riverbank Park is just as it sounds, close to the river. Established in 1895, the park is nothing short of gorgeous!

Like Ironbound, Weequahic does not have any parks dedicated solely to our favorite furry friends. But do not despair; the neighborhood is home to a large park, Weequahic Park, where all species are welcome. The park is often visited by active people due to the large number of sports fields and rubberized jogging track. The park also has a large lake in the center where you will see many Weequahic residents relaxing, picnicking and sunbathing. Because this is not a dog park, make sure you take a leash. Trust us, you will have a wonderful time at this pawsome park!

In 2015, the Forest Hill neighborhood in Kearny got its very first dog park. Newark residents flock to Kearny Dog Park at all hours of the day. This dog park is off-leash so your most loyal companion can actually run around freely. The park is separated by dog size. However, it does not have many amenities so make sure you bring your own water. If you do not want to spend time at the dog park, consider visiting Branch Brook Park. This is one of the most gorgeous parks you will ever set foot in. It is covered in colorful, magnificent cherry blossom trees.

Although Seventh Avenue does not have any dog parks, its rich history makes up for it. The neighborhood is home to immigrants from all different cultures, who have created museums, shops and restaurants. Even though there is no park, you can have a great day taking your dog for a walk through the neighborhood. Start your walk at St. Gerard’s Shrine, where you can sit in the grass and learn some history. However, since there is no dog park make sure you take doggie poop bags and water. Also, make sure you wear your walking shoes so you can walk through the entire neighborhood without any pain in your paws!
