“Always happy to see your pup!”

Hello! I'm Chris, a recent Temple graduate and pro dog-walker. My friends and relatives always call on me to sit their furry companions because I'm friendly, reliable and great with their dogs! I know that each dog and their owners have their own specialized needs, and I'm here to be attentive to those needs. In addition, with my degree in psychology, I can help your animal to maintain healthy behaviors to increase their wellness and happiness. Thanks for your patronage!

Hi, I'm Becky! I have lived in Philadelphia for over 15 years. One of my favorite things to do is to explore this awesome city with a dog by my side. I've had dogs and cats my whole life, and don't think I could have it any other way. My current best friend/roommate is George, a 5 year old pit bull/lab mix. I understand that all dogs need discipline and respect, with lots of love and exercise. I'll make sure to always keep all dogs super safe and happy.

I have been walking dogs for 3 years and have been a dog lover my entire life. I grew up with a Standard Poodle named Collette. As an adult, I lived in a house with a lovely brown anxious Aussie. I helped to care for the dog- feeding her, walking her, giving medications, and keeping an eye on her to make sure she stayed out of mischief. We also regularly took in foster dogs of all shapes and sizes. I love getting outside and moving around, so I look forward to meeting and caring for your dog!

“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 Sorrel, and I’ve lived around animals my whole life. I love cats and dogs, and cows, too! My most formal experience working with animals was taking blood samples from a cow at UF’s veterinary college. I am confident your dog and I will get along famously on a nice, healthy walk.

A small borough in New Jersey, Merchantville is a pleasant and low-key place to have a little doggy adventure. The town is peaceful, with friendly locals, and it just so happens to be conveniently located just across the bridge from Philadelphia. Whether you’re looking for something a bit more relaxing, or you’re eager to explore the hustle and bustle of a much larger city, Merchantville is in the perfect location for either of these sorts of day trips. 

No worries if you’re not looking to travel, though -- settled right in the middle of the borough is Merchantville Bike Path. One of the many rail trails supported by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, this bike path is open to all sorts of travelers. Leash up Fido and prepare for a nice brisk day, walking along the beautiful and well-maintained trail. All you’ll need to bring is plenty of water for the two of you, some doggy waste bags, and maybe a few treats to reward your pup’s doggone good behavior. Who knows? Maybe your pup will make some new pals they’re willing to share their yum-yums with! 

Regardless of what you choose to do, Merchantville is, without a doubt, a must-see doggy destination!
