“Extreme Animal Lover! Hug your furbaby!”

Hi! I am a huge dog lover (currently have 2 Goldens) who walks my dogs every day (unless it's raining hard or there's a severe wind chill). I love all dogs. I do not walk dogs on prong collars. I prefer a harness or gentle leader. I am a school teacher and have lived in my home for about 15 years. I've hired dog walkers in the past myself (when my dogs were puppies and needed to get out more on work days). I am the person who, when not with my dogs, stops to meet other dogs along my way.

After many years of working in customer service, I decided to pursue my love of animals further. Aside from spending time with my own pets, I also volunteer at the AWS shelter in Kennebunk. I assist in puppy training, obedience and walking shelter dogs. My dog and I have taken courses in obedience, tricks, agility, Wag-It, conditioning and even circus dog. I am reliable, responsible and compassionate. Your dog and I will have lots of fun!

“Outdoor enthusiast and friend of dogs!”

I love being active and spending time with animals! While growing up, I tried my hardest to convince my parents to adopt dogs, but had to settle for hamsters, guinea pigs, and rabbits. I have always had an affinity for animals, but have felt especially connected to dogs, which lead me to begin dog walking for friends when I was only five years old. Since then, I have spent countless hours walking and taking care of dogs - I hope I have the opportunity to spend time with your pup soon, too!

Hello! I've loved dogs ever since I was a little girl but because of my family's living situation i have never been able to own one myself. Because of this I am filled with love and knowledge for an animal that has no outlet. I do own 3 cats and a bunch of fish wich receive much love and spoilage. Hopefully with the profits I make from walking I will be able to continue to spoil them!

Dog Walking in Cape Elizabeth

Cape Elizabeth is located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Portland Head Light is a famous and frequently photographed lighthouse inside of the Fort Williams Park, and guards the entrance to the Portland Harbor and Casco Bay that sees thousands of huge cruise ships, commercial carriers and smaller pleasure boats pass by every year.

Fort Williams Park itself is very dog-friendly, and many folks bring their fur-babies there to explore the crumbling Goddard Mansion, visit the Arboretum, romp on the playing fields, or follow the ocean walk pathways along the rocky and turbulent shore. If it’s a foggy day, be aware that the massive foghorn at the Head Light can be especially distressing to our 4-legged friends. Dogs must be leashed while on the grounds of Fort Williams, except for a small area near the barracks that is marked where they can roam free. The park is open sunrise to sunset all year, and is free.

One of Cape Elizabeth’s best assets is the network of trails owned and maintained by the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust. One of these, the Cross Town Trail, is 7.5 miles long and begins at the coastline, crossing wooded terrain and bridges, over wetlands populated with waterfowl, fish and small mammals. The trail ends at another popular spot on the ocean’s shore, Kettle Cove, a definite must see!

Tucked away between the ocean and busy Route 77, this neighborhood provides a quiet, old-fashioned rural neighborhood feel. An easy walk east brings one to the beaches of Broad Cove and Trundy Point, and dogs are as frequent a sight here as bicycles and walkers.  Leashes are required, and the pebbled beaches are perfect for sniffing out small crustaceans, starfish and sea glass at low tide. There is a working farm here named Alewives’ Farm, where you can buy fresh produce and live lobsters for steaming back at the cottage. There is also the C Salt Gourmet Market ,which will provide dog bowls at their outdoor tables for sharing your breakfast and lunch fare with your fur-buddy.

The farm is also home to a dog-friendly eatery called The Well at Jordan’s Farm.  A small menu of locally sourced ingredients prepared simply and deliciously can be shared with your canine companion at their outdoor picnic tables. The menu changes daily to accommodate availability of the freshest and best ingredients, but always offers chicken, seafood and vegetarian items as staples. Food is prepared fresh and to order, but the simple preparations make for short waiting times, during which you can enjoy some of their house made iced tea. Other beverages are BYOB.

The forest floor through which the trails of Robinson Woods travel is crisscrossed by streams opening into pools where wildflowers and ferns flourish. In an adjacent area of the park called Robinson Woods II, fields and wetlands with numerous wading birds and water mammals can be found. What a smorgasbord of sights and smells for our fur-buddy to enjoy! Before 10 am, dogs may roam off-leash at Robinson Woods II, and after 4 pm at Robinson Woods I. The park provides waste bags and receptacles at the entrance.

In the middle of the West Fowler neighborhood sits the Great Pond, Cape Elizabeth’s largest wetland. This natural resource for fishing, bird watching, or hunting also includes the Great Pond link, a trail system that stretches from the busy Route 77 to the Alewife Brook. The Great Pond Trail is an easy-to-moderate walk, along raised wooden boardwalk for most of the 1.5-mile distance. Signs are posted along the trail to designate sights such as wooded fields and beaver lodges. The Pond is also frequently used by kayakers who can enjoy the unique perspective of the cattails, tall grasses and activities among them from the water. Fido is welcome to join his human at Great Pond, leashed or enclosed in a kayak, year-round.
