“Treating your dog like family, every single time!”

Hi, I’m Kayla! I’ve been working with dogs for about 7 years now. I’ve walked and boarded just about ever kind of dog from pug to rottweiler and even a cane corso. I’ve been stepping into dog training and really educating myself on all there is to learn. I have two pit bull mixes at home, they are biggest goof balls. Just know when your pet is with me, it will be treated like my own.

My name is Evie and I'm a senior studying marine science at Boston University. Though my studies focus on aquatic life, I have always fostered a love for animals of all shapes and sizes (likely a result of the many pets cared for throughout my childhood). My family dog, Teddy, is an 8 year old Shitzu-Dachshund mix (a "shweenie"!). He currently lives at our home in Kansas City so I find myself missing my furry friend quite often. Most of my canine experience is with small to medium dogs, but I'll never turn down a stroll with a well-tempered giant. I hope to get to know you and your pup soon!

Hello! My name is Rachel and I am an Alaskan Fisheries Observer! I have a Bachelors degree in Marine Science and I am from Maine! With my job as an observer, I have a few months off at a time, so I can’t have a dog of my own. But this is a great alternative for me! I had a Newfoundland and a Papillon growing up, so I am very comfortable with small and large pups! Back home I also cared for two labs and a pit bull mix, which one of the labs had bad allergies and hip problems where it was hard for him to walk. I am very confident in my skills to give your pet the best care possible!

Dog Walking in Bangor

Located right by the Penobscot River, Bangor is not only an arts and culture hub, but also boasts scenic waterfront views and so much natural beauty. From city parks and walking trails to dog-friendly restaurants and five veterinary clinics, it is so much more fun exploring Bangor when you have your four-legged furry pal by your side.

There are so many pawsome walks to be had in Bangor, with some of these being found in Brown Woods, which has 28 acres to explore, along with a walking trail that is just under a mile long. The Walden-Parke Preserve is also worth checking out, as this 410 acre parcel of land is home to some tail-wagging nature trails. Give the Blue Trail a try, as this 2.5 mile loop is easy to walk and showcases so much natural diversity. For even more walks, there is a popular network of trails in the Bangor City Forest, which will show you and Fido some interesting examples of reforestation and tree regeneration.

After all of that walking, you and Fido will need to sit down for a rest, and the dog-friendly restaurants in Bangor are the pawfect place at which to do this. For some authentic Italian, head to Pompeii Pizza, where your pooch will even be given a bowl of water to sip from, while Paddy Murphy's is an Irish bar and grill that serves up Irish comfort food.

With such a wide range of exciting walks to be had, as well as a selection of dog-friendly restaurants to relax in afterwards, it is easy to see why Bangor is such a popular city with those who own dogs.

Although the Stillwater Avenue/ Husson U neighborhood is a major part of the city, it is still home to a 70 acre stretch of greenery known as Essex Woods. Not only is there so much wildlife to see here, but there are also over two miles of walking trails for you and Fido to explore, with dogs being allowed to run off the lead here. If your pooch is still not tired, Essex Woods is also where you will find the Bangor Dog Park. This fenced-in dog park has separate sections for smaller and larger dogs, as well as plenty of balls and toys for the dogs to play with, just be sure to bring your own water and doggie bags.

The Broadway/ State St neighborhood is also known as the Broadway Historic District, with many of the structures here dating back to the late 19th century. One of the highlights of this area is Riverview Park, which offers beautiful river views along with a playground, picnic areas and a small walking trail network. Another park to take Fido to is Chapin Park, which has an extensive green area that dogs tend to love. It also has a trail, known as the Chapin Park Trail, that will take you and your pooch both around and through the park, but keep in mind that a lead is essential here.

There is plenty to see and do in West Bangor, but if you and your pooch would like to learn more about the city's history, make your first stop the Paul Bunyan Statue. This 31 foot tall landmark has been in place since 1959, and honors a legendary local lumberman. Just a couple of minutes walk from here is Bass Park, which is where the city's horse races have been held for the past 135 years. There is no doubt that your pup will love exploring the greenery around this park, although you will need a lead, drinking water and doggie bags. Also in this neighborhood is Fairmount Park, which is home to sports facilities, a playground, and plenty of green spaces.

Bangor's City Center is always full of life and activity, but for a more laid-back walk, head to the Kenduskeag Stream Park Trail. The stream itself runs for just over 36 miles, and the 2.5 mile walking trail that has been cut alongside it is well-maintained, taking you past remnants of old mills that tell the story of Bangor's past. There are a couple of other parks in this neighborhood worth checking out, with Hayford Park being one of them. This is one of the city's major parks, with everything from a swimming pool to tennis courts to playgrounds. Coe Park is much smaller, with a basketball hoop and a playground, but still makes for a pawsome dog walk.

The Mount Hope Ave/ Hogan Rd neighborhood is home to a couple of Bangor's finest city parks. The Grotto Cascade Park is one of the most popular in the city, thanks to its 20 foot tall waterfall, as well as the lighted fountain. This park boasts spectacular river views, as well as short walking trails for you and Fido to stroll on. For more pawtastic walks, head to Saxl Park, where you will find a trail system featuring a series of loops, taking the two of you through fields and past a small pond. If you and your pup would like a quick bite to eat afterwards, pay a visit to the dog-friendly Hogan Road Deli and Convenience Store, which offers up over 100 sandwich combinations alongside micro-brews and high quality wines.
