    Hello my name is Stephanie. I have owned dogs from a child and would walk or house sit my neighbors dogs when they were on vacation. I currently own two dogs names Cheyenne 15 years old and Ares 13 years old and I took a course in grooming but I am not certified but have been grooming my own dogs for over 15 years. I volunteer online raising money for various dog rescues. Safety is my top priority and I hope to meet your best friend soon.

    Hi! My name is Karen. I am a huge dog lover, I've never met a dog I didn't love, and make instant friends with the pups I meet. I have had dogs my whole life, including now. I have a rat terrier as well as a super hyper chi-weenie that I rescued from running in traffic. While my dogs are small, I also foster dogs and most of the ones that come to me while awaiting a forever home are pit bulls or other misunderstood pooches. I love them all. I know how much you love your dog, and I will treat them like I would my own. I cant wait to meet your pup!

    **Experienced Emergency Veterinary Technician** Hi! My name is Jen and my life revolves around dogs! My nights are spent as an overnight veterinary technician at an emergency animal hospital and my days include dog walking and pet sitting. I consider myself the luckiest person in the world to be able to intertwine my job and my passion into one. I have decades of experience with all breeds of dogs. I grew up on a working cattle farm where I trained herding dogs and retrievers. My technician job has allowed me to become proficient in triaging and treating medical emergencies, understanding behavioral concerns and implementing positive training techniques. I love each of my patients like they are my own and I will go to the ends of the earth to provide the best possible care for them! I firmly believe the bond we share with our dogs is life changing. There is no such thing as a bad day when your in the company of a dog! I can't wait to meet your pupper!

    Meredith is an excellent dog-walker! Zoltan took to her immediately, and she knows what she is doing. She is very professional, walks at a brisk pace, and handled Zoltan very well. He is a grown pitbull mix and around 65 pounds and she had no problem walking him. We are going to try to book her again for all of his walks!

    Town of Dover

    One of the finest parks in Dover can be found in the Town of Dover neighborhood, making this an area that your pooch will want to keep coming back to. Mountain Park is quite a new park, which is why it is largely undeveloped. The park mostly features dense woodland, with plenty of vegetation for Fido to sniff about in. There are two hiking trails within the park that you and your pooch can follow, with the White Trail spanning the length of the park, and the Blue Trail taking you to a scenic lookout point at the top of a hill.

Adjoining on to this field is Second Street Playground, an expansive neighborhood playground with a paved path that you and Fido can enjoy a stroll on. If your pup still needs some more exercise, head on over to Overlook Park. This is a passive neighborhood park featuring a dense wooded area, at the center of which is a grassy green clearing for you and your pooch to play on.
