“I’d love to walk your dog!”

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I'm an artist and I love animals, have since I was a kid. I've always been told that I am a calm, kind, patient and observant person. Because of that, I feel like it’s always been easy for me to understand animals and get along with them. I'm currently working with a group of animators to create a short animated film and studio. I've spent a bit too much time indoors lately, so I'd love to get out more, and to do it while walking a dog would be a big plus!

Hi! My name is Lauren. Thanks for considering me to walk your canine companion! I'm a lifelong dog lover and always excited to meet new dog friends. I've previously worked as a trainer and at a cage-free boarding facility (responsible for feeding and medicating all of the dogs!) I pride myself on being trustworthy, reliable, and conscientious, and will treat your pet with the same love and kindness as I would my own. I appreciate the trust placed in me by the owners and dogs and will do my best to earn it on every walk. Let's get walking!

Dog Walking in Pelham

With sprawling expanses of greenery to explore, as well as a highly rated veterinary hospital, Pelham has everything you need for a pawtastic time with Fido.

The largest parcel of greenery in Pelham is the Harkness Conservation Area, where you will find 136 acres of beautiful wilderness to walk through. There is a marked trail that runs through the grounds for 1.7 miles, as well as several smaller unmarked trails branching off from this, making it easy to spend the entire day here.

This is a stunning waterfall with three main cascades, each one just under ten feet in height. There are a few different trails leading to the falls, varying in length and difficulty level, but keep in mind that some require a great deal of balance on slippery rocks.

With so many pawsome walks to be had, you and your pooch will really enjoy all that Pelham has to offer.
