I'm in college currently enrolled at Widener University. I've had my own dog walking business in my hometown since I was about 12 years old, and I've walked over 100 dogs. My goal when using this app is to help make busy pet owners' lives easier by taking care of and walking their dogs when they're not around. I have a furry friend of my own and I understand the responsibility when taking care of a dog.

I have 2 pups at home who have been in my life since I was young, both whom I love very much and miss while I am away at school! I am an animal lover! I would consider myself a very responsible and trustworthy adult.

I am a graduate student who would love to get some fresh air with your pup! I grew up in Vermont with two wonderful dogs, Red (Retriever mix) and Buddy (Collie/Newfoundland). I have experience with both puppies and geriatric dogs. I walked and sat for my previous roommate's American Shepard for 1 year, from the time he was 8 weeks old. I also walked/sat a geriatric Border Collie for 1 year. Due to classes, my availability is variable, so I am best suited for on-demand and one-time walks.

“Dog lover at heart!”
I grew up with an adorable Cockapoo who passed away in April at the age of 13. I have a bit of a void in my heart and walk dogs to get my “dog fix” in. I am comfortable handling dogs of all sizes and am also comfortable handling 2 dogs at a time. I would love the chance to meet the canine member of your family!

Margate City in New Jersey may be little town, but it is a great
place to stop in with your pup. There are many woof-tastic places to eat here, and several lovely parks and nearby trails to explore. Margate City is located
on Absecon Island, which is also home to the larger Atlantic City. There is one vet in
town, and another in nearby Ventnor City.
TheJerome Avenue Park is a great little green space in town where you can take your pup for a walk on the lead. There is a playground here for the small two-legged companions, and a soccer field providing plenty of open space for fun and games.
Margate City is a gold mine for pup-friendly places to eat, such as Hannah G’s on the eastern border. This casual eatery serves up American-style meals for breakfast and lunch, such as omelettes, pancakes, sandwiches, wraps, burgers, or a satisfying salad such as the Loaded Up Spinach Salad. Close by is a little bakery and café simply known as No. 7311, where you can grab a hot cup of coffee and a pastry or cookie. Both of these places allow dogs at their outdoor tables.
With many things to see and pup-proof places to eat, you and your pet are sure to enjoy your visit to Margate City!
In this part of town, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes meal time. There are six amazing restaurants in this area that allow dogs to join their owners at outside tables. Bocca is an Italian-inspired bistro with a huge selection of traditional fare. Downbeach Deli and Restaurant is a more laid-back style deli, with a variety of sandwiches, wraps and salads, as well as hot dishes such as pot pies and fish cakes. Maynards Café and Johnny’s Cafe and Bar are great places to pop in for a casual lunch. For something a little special, head to Jalapenos and Salads Co. for an exotic infusion of Mexican-inspired clean eating options, or Miyako Japanese Cuisine for a plate of sushi or delicious tempura.
Just west of Margate City is the Longport Dog Beach
at Somers Point in Longport. This beach welcomes doggie play off the lead,
giving your pet the chance to really stretch his legs and tear up and down the
sandy banks as much as he desires! If he is a swimmer, the water is clean and a
lovely way to cool off in warmer weather. There aren’t any amenities here, so
you will need to pack drinking water and clean up bags. There is plenty of
parking close by. Just a short hop to the next island over is Back Bay BBQ,
where you can get a hearty meal of ribs, BBQ pulled pork, chicken and a variety
of sides with your worn-out pooch by your side at one of the outdoor tables.
The Ocean City Dog Park in nearby Ocean City covers 42,000
square feet, and offers three large play areas for pups of all sizes to run off the lead and meet new friends. You will need to obtain a ‘Paw Pass’
from the Ocean City’s City Hall for a small fee to access the park,
but your pup is sure to have a great time. The double-gated park has easy
access and ample off-street parking. On-site, there are waste bags and disposal
bins provided to keep the place in puptastic condition, as well as water
fountains for both two-legged and four-legged visitors. Shade and picnic tables
are available for you to relax at and supervise your pup, while he has great
fun frolicking with the other dogs and playing with the toys and agility
The Linwood Bikepath
(Pleasantville-Somers Point) runs through the town of Linwood, just six miles
from Margate City. This trail is one of 1600 rail-trails supported by
Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, and a section of the Somers Point Bike Path that runs
a total of 8.2 miles from Pleasantville to Somers Point. This is a great
section to take your dog for an on-lead walk along. The paved path is an easy
walk and takes you through the residential neighborhoods of Linwood, past
Hatshorne Park and the Linwood Arboretum. Bring your water and drinking bowl
for Fido when heading out for a walk here and always clean up after your pet.
The Somers Point Bike Path begins here in Somers
Point and is a great paved trail providing an easy on-lead walk for you and
your pup. Much of this area is light industrial and residential, giving you many
interesting sights to see as you walk by. If you are hungry after your stroll,
head to Buona Vita for an authentic but casual Italian dining experience. Your
dog is welcome at one of their many outdoor tables while you enjoy your meal.
For a sweet end to your outing, grab a delicious frozen treat at Dairy Queen,
where your dog can also sit by you at one of the outdoor tables.
