“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.

Dog Walking in Cape Porpoise

Cape Porpoise is a village in the town of Kennebunkport, nestled between Goose Rocks Beach and Kennebunkport’s Dock Square. It is known by some as the “quiet side of Kennebunkport”’ because it attracts fewer tourists, being a working fishing village. The harbor is guarded by Goat Island with its iconic lighthouse. You and your leashed fur pup are welcome to visit the island by private boat, and the current keepers will be happy to give you a tour if they are at home. Calling ahead is recommended.

If you’re craving super fresh seafood, look no further than Cape Pier Chowderhouse. This dog-friendly restaurant gets its seafood from the village fishermen and lobstermen, and it doesn’t get any fresher than that! Their pier dining area is open to your furry friend, and you will both enjoy watching the fishing boat activity in the harbor while you chow down. The owners and servers are very dog-friendly and have been known to invite dogs into the restaurant during inclement weather. Chowders, lobsters, crab cakes, fish and chips - you’re sure to find the perfect meal. Bone appetit!

Should your pup need medical attention while in the Cape Porpoise area, be aware that there are at least 5 veterinarians and animal hospitals nearby, in Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Biddeford and Arundel. They will have your furry buddy wagging again in no time!  

Be sure to visit this coastal village with Fido and experience the working harbor and island life found here! You won’t regret it!

Kennebunk Beach

The Kennebunk Beach area of the town of Kennebunk hosts the actual beach that is its namesake, along with the adjacent Mothers Beach. This dog-friendly strip of sand and sea welcomes your leashed fur-pup in the summer before 9 am and after 5 pm, and any time of the day the rest of the year. The sandy surface and gentle waves make it the perfect spot for Fido to frolic and take a dip with you in the chilly (even in August!) ocean. If you’re visiting from out of town, pet-friendly Shorelands Guest Resort and Cottages awaits you. Fido is welcome for a small additional fee, and you’ll be located close to the beach and the Rachel Carson Wildlife Preserve, where pups are welcome in designated areas. Look for signs.

Wildes Corner

The Kennebunkport neighborhood of Wildes Corner features Parson’s Way, a 2-mile long cliff walk with scenic views of the ocean, and Walker Point, the summer residence of the George HW Bush family. Dogs on leash are welcome on Parson’s Way, so be sure to bring Fido along. He’ll meet lots of other dogs on this path in good weather. The Way leads to Blowing Cave Park, where the incoming tide and surf enter a hole in the rock and forcefully blows air out the other side. It’s a popular local attraction! If this hour-long walk makes you and your fur-pup hungry, step onto the patio at the On the Edge Restaurant, where you can enjoy the casual, but delicious fare with your pup in tow. They even have water bowls and pup-treats for your furry bestie!

Downtown Kennebunkport

Downtown Kennebunkport is where the action is in the summer when the town becomes packed with tourists and their pups, and everyone is looking for a place to eat where they can take their fur-babies. Luckily, this neighborhood features a few dog-friendly eateries. Salt and Honey offers scrumptious and elegant dinner items that will please both (wo)man and beast, but the restaurant also serves a complete breakfast selection and lunch. So, stop in any time with Fido in tow. Or try Ryan’s Corner House Irish Pub where you’ll find authentic Irish food and drink, and pups are welcome to join you on their patio. Bone appetit!

This Kennebunkport neighborhood is where you’ll find Goose Rocks Beach, a pet-friendly beach that is more than 3 miles long with tidal pools and gentle waves. Pups are welcome in the summer on leash before 9 am and after 6 pm, and anytime during the rest of the year. Build a sand fort and dare Fido to knock it down, or amble down the beach with him in tow and watch the wheeling, screeching seagulls. Be ready to fill in the sand holes he digs, and be sure to bring waste bags. Clamber over the rocks that stand between the beach and the road, and smell the rich fragrance of the Salt Spray Roses that grow along them. This is a lovely, family beach, especially when the family includes a fur-buddy like yours!

A few miles down the coast from Cape Porpoise is the village of Ogunquit, home to the Ogunquit Dog Park. It is open from late March through November and welcomes summer tourist pups as well as the locals. The park is fully fenced, with a separate area for small dogs, and double-gated safety entries. It is equipped with chairs for the humans to relax in, drinking water for the pups, and the surface is wood chips, which are so comfy on doggy’s feet!  While in Ogunquit, be sure to visit the Ogunquit Marginal Way Dog Walk. Open to all pups from October to March, this paved path connects Frazier Pasture Rd and E Frazier Pasture Rd. Stroll through marshland and meadow while watching for waterfowl and other birds! And for a unique experience for doggo, try the Finest Kind Lobstering Trip, a seafaring adventure aboard a real lobster boat with lobstermen as your guides. View the beautiful Maine coast from the water, learn about lobstering from the experts, and bring Fido along! He’s more than welcome!
