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!

“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!).

East Newark is just over a 20-minute drive from Wilmington, and the trip is definitely worth it to visit the James F. Hall Trail with your dog. This trail was once an abandoned rail trail that was converted into part of a network of trails spanning across America. These trails are excellent for walking your dog, jogging, and biking. The James F. Hall Trail is a 1.8-mile trail that has a whole lot packed into it. The path is paved, and along the way, you and Rover will come across playgrounds, soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and three city parks!
