“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.

I am reliable, responsible and compassionate. Your dog and I will have lots of fun!

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 Scarborough

Cats are very popular in Maine, and there are evidently a lot of felines present in Scarborough, Maine. The little beach town is, however, also a great place to visit or live with dogs. The city of Scarborough, unlike most cities, does not require dogs to be leashed as long as they respond to voice commands. It is, of course, advisable to keep a leash on you at all times for emergency purposes.

Because of this law, the entire city of Scarborough, Maine, is an off-leash area. However, it is not appreciated if dogs run wild through the town center. There are luckily plenty of suitable areas to walk your dogs. Scarborough is, for instance, connected to the Eastern Trail. This 65-mile route from Casco Bay to the Piscataqua River offers many off-road trails for equestrians, hikers, bird watchers and dog owners to enjoy.

Another option is Hinckley Park, located in South Portland and thus only a small commute from Scarborough, Maine. This massive, 40-acre park is widely appreciated by nature enthusiasts and outdoorsy people. The park offers a mixed terrain; there are meadows for ball games, two ponds for swimming and plenty of trails for exploring and sniffing.

There are a large amount of pet-friendly lodging options as Scarborough, Maine, is a resort town. There are chain hotels such as the Residence Inn and Extended Stay America, local hotels, camping grounds and even beach houses.
