“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 South Portland

What began as a small residential farming town in the 1600s has grown into a city with more than 25,000 people and a busy working waterfront called South Portland, Maine. The city has two beautiful lighthouses that people come from far and wide to see. There are plenty of other things to do in South Portland, or SoPo as it is often referred to, like visiting the many restaurants, shops, museums, and of course, dog-friendly activities and parks! South Portland gets a lot of snow in the winters which makes it a prime spot for winter activities like skiing, tobogganing, and ice fishing.

Make sure you and Fido check out Easy Day when you're in SoPo. This family-friendly and dog-friendly eatery is located in a bowling alley, and it has several tables outside where your dog is welcome to sit with you. Easy Day also often features live music so you can enjoy not only their scrumptious food but some local talent as well! They serve dishes like poutine, fish tacos, and their signature platters alongside fresh, cold drinks! This dog-friendly restaurant is just the start of all that South Portland has to offer you and your pets.
