“I'm there for your dog as if he/she were my own!”

I've loved dogs my entire life. I strive to be a good dog person, meaning I try to assist friends in training and gladly help out when needed. I have not met a dog I didn't like and vice versa. I have always had dogs of my own and made sure they were trained and socialized.

Hi, I’m Pam! I’m married with 5 children and 3 Dachshunds (Rocky, Pebbles, & Buster). I recently retired after working 31 years in the Insurance industry and now enjoy a healthy life style. Growing up in Northeast Philadelphia I got my first dog at the age of 12 and have been an animal lover ever since. I have always been a responsible care taker as I would dog sit for my neighbors when they went on vacation. Although I currently own small dogs, I have experience with large dogs too as I took my daughter’s Vizsla for a year as she went away to college in CA. I have a huge heart and I will care for your dog as it was my own making sure their needs as well as yours are met.

Dog Walking in Florence

Located right next to the Delaware River, the Township of Florence is extremely picturesque, and is a popular destination with those who enjoy outdoor recreational activities. Not only are the quiet, waterfront streets of Florence pawfect for an urban dog walk, but the township's parks offer up plenty of greenery too, giving you and Fido the best of both worlds.

Florence is home to a couple of pawriffic parks, but the most scenic is the River's Edge Park, because, as you can tell from its name, this park sits on the banks of the Delaware River. There are some stunning views to be had from this park, and the beautifully-landscaped greenery all around you only highlights the area's natural beauty. There is a small play area and a few picnic benches within the park, as well as a paved trail that follows along the side of the river, making this a great spot for a picnic lunch and a leisurely stroll.

The largest parcel of greenery in Florence is at the Florence Recreation Complex. There are a number of sporting opportunities offered here, both indoor and outdoor, as well as a couple of paved walking paths that cut their way through the park.

With large grassy parks and pretty views, it is easy to see why Florence is so appealing to dogs.

The neighborhood of Hedding in Bordentown is about two miles from Florence, and is home to one of the finest parks in the area. The 370 acre Crystal Lake Park is quite wild and rugged, and is named after the ten acre lake that lies at the center of the park. There is plenty to do here, from horseback riding to fishing to picnicking, but what your pooch will appreciate the most are the seven hiking trails that meander through the park. These vary greatly in length, from the 0.1 mile trail that follows along a part of the lake's shoreline to the six mile trail that encompasses the whole park.
