Hi! I am an energetic dog mom of 1, Chum, who is a rescue golden retriever mix. I love being outdoors and I love animals so I figured why not merge my two loves together with Wag! My family and I recently went away on vacation and had to leave our dog behind. Thankfully we had an amazing person to care for Chum like family and I would love to be able to offer that same comfort to others while they are away or at work. Any questions, please ask!

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 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.

Hi! My name is Emily Gilinger and I am a graduate student at the University of Scranton!

“I work hard so my dog can have a better life.”

Hi! My name is Laura, and I like dogs more than people! Okay, that might not be the best thing to say, but let’s be honest, dogs have such an unrelenting joy and love about them that just makes them so lovable, and I love spending time with them. I’m a dog mom myself, so I know how important it is to make sure that your dog has the best care in the world, and I ensure you that I will give your dog that care!

Dog Walking in Northfield

With a total area of just 3.5 square miles, Northfield is quite a small city, but this makes it easy to explore by foot, as well as by paw. With sprawling parks, dog-friendly restaurants and a highly rated animal hospital, this is a city that has so much to offer for both you and your pooch.

When it comes to the parks in Northfield, the highlight is most definitely Birch Grove Park. There are 271 acres to explore here, complete with fresh water fishing spots, a historical house, a playground, picnic areas, and a campsite, as well as several nature trails that wind their way through the grounds.

If your pooch would prefer a shorter walk, Stillwater Park boasts beautiful waterfront views. This is a passive park, with half of it consisting of a dense covering of mature trees, and the other half open grass for your pooch to roam about in.

For pups who enjoy being wined and dined, check out Carluccio's Coal Fired Pizza, which has been featured on Food Network's TV show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives for their coal-fired build-your-own pizzas.

With so many dog-friendly activities in Northfield, this is a city that is so much more fun to explore when you have your pooch by your side.
