Karen was very accommodating and loving toward the doggo
Sarah is awesome. She is everything and more than anyone would want for a walker or anything related to your pup. I am beyond thrilled for both Hank and I.
Love that he s warmed up to you so much! Thank you again!
Thank you so much for watching Amore! She s a 60lb pitbull but she really is just a big baby that loves to cuddle and play. She was crying at one point when I got home and I think it s because she misses you!

The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Durham
The Durham neighborhood of Durham lies at the heart of town, and is home to some pawriffic dog walks. Some of the best can be found in the Oyster River Forest, which stretches out for 171 acres, consisting of both woodlands as well as grassy fields. There is a network of trails here that you and Fido can follow, making it easy to explore the entire forest. Another popular forested area to check out is College Woods, which lies at the west side of the University of New Hampshire campus. There are 250 acres to see here, including a 64 acre tract that has been set aside for conservation, with four miles of hiking trails to choose from.
Dover Rd/ Old Landing Rd
There is even more greenery to explore in the Dover Rd/ Old Landing Rd neighborhood, making this a popular area among the pooches of Durham. The Hills Family Forest is always popular, with over 50 acres of conserved land located here. Although there are no official trails running through the forest, there are several unmarked and un-maintained trails that you and Fido can follow. Also in this neighborhood is the Johnson Creek Open Space, which is another picturesque spot to visit. Johnson Creek borders this natural area, with the rest consisting mainly of a dense expanse of trees and walking trails, making this space pawfect for a leisurely stroll with your pooch.
The neighborhood of Mitchell Road in Lee is right next to Durham, and this is the place to go to if your pooch needs to have an off-lead run. This is where you will find the Friend-Lee Pets Dog Park, which boasts 30,000 square feet of grassy, fenced-off land for your pup to play and socialize in. There are separate areas for smaller and larger dogs here, as well as a watering hole for your pooch to cool off in. Clean drinking water for dogs is provided at this dog park, but you will still need to bring your own doggie bags.
The Bayview neighborhood in Dover is next to Durham, meaning that you will not have far to travel for even more green spaces to walk your pooch in. The highlight of this neighborhood is the Bellamy River Wildlife Management Area, where you and Fido will find 400 acres to explore. There are various natural features here, from tidal creeks and wetlands to woodlands and small ponds. Keep in mind that this natural area is home to the endangered New England cottontail rabbits, so it is extremely important that you keep your pooch on a lead at all times. If your dog does flush out one of these rabbits, make sure that you keep a good hold of Fido and move along to another part of the park.
Directly adjacent to Durham is the neighborhood of Nute in Madbury, and this is an area that your pup will no doubt love.
