“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.

With the area’s natural beauty, it’s easy to see why settlers decided to stay in Gorham in the 1700s. This Portland suburb is a dream destination for hiking enthusiasts. The area is home to several scenic trails that you and your leashed pup will love exploring. In the event that your pup needs to visit a vet, Gorham has three animal clinics to make sure your pooch stays healthy.

An especially pawsome path is the Hawkes Preserve Trail, a one-mile loop with views of the Preumpscot River. There’s lots to see and sniff among the shade of the hemlock trees! The trailhead has a non-motorized boat launch where you and your paddling pup can take advantage of some time on the water, too.

Cummings Preserve Trail is another woofderful spot for a walk with your leashed dog! The one-mile trail starts at the Dundee Dam and meanders on an embankment next to an old canal. You and Fido can take in beautiful water views and even peek down to the foamy waters below the dam!

Sebago Brewing Company is a woofderful spot for food and drinks in Gorham. You can enjoy brewpub favorites like burgers, tacos or calamari with your pup by your side on the fur-iendly patio.
