“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.

“Ready to walk!”

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.

Dog Walking in Oaklyn

Oaklyn is a borough in Camden County, New Jersey, just 38 miles southwest of the State’s capital of Trenton. The area was once dense forest land and home to the Lenape Native Americans, but was settled by a group of Quakers around 1682 in what was originally known as the Newton Colony. The town was officially named Oaklyn in 1894. It is a small town, but a lovely place to stop in with your pup. There aren’t any vets or animal hospitals in Oaklyn, but rest assured help is not far away if your beloved travel buddy falls ill. Surrounding towns of Collingswood and Audubon have several clinics and animal hospitals that would be happy to help.

There are two green spaces in town worth checking out on your travels. Peters Creek offers wetlands and natural landscape, where you can come for a stroll and take in views over the lake. Lions Park is close by, towards the centre of town, and a beautiful green space nestled amongst suburbia. Your dog will love taking a stroll through the park and surrounding Oaklyn streets with you. It is a short walk to the main shopping district from here, where there is a range of interesting places to take a look at as you pass by.

With plenty more to do in Oaklyn and surrounding areas, this borough definitely worth taking some time in!

The Haddon Lake Park in Mount Ephraim is 73 acres of spectacular recreation space, a great place to bring your pooch for a morning out. Pop your pup on the lead for a walk on the one-mile loop around the lake, or tackle the 1.6-mile cross country trail. There is also a bike path running through this area which is divided into sections from 0.4 to 0.7 miles long. The kids will love this area too, with two playgrounds, a softball field and fishing permitted from the pier. Restrooms and picnic facilities are also provided here. Keep your pup leashed here as it is a public park, and always bring a stash of waste disposal bags.

Saddler's Woods Conservation Area is 25 acres of land in Haddon Township where pups are permitted to join you for a walk, provided they are leashed. There are five main trails here and several minor trails that make up the self-guided tree tour, with 15 stops along the way to tell you more about the beautiful specimens that tower above you. Maps are available at the park. This is a ‘leave no trace’ area, so make sure you take any waste with you when you leave. Newton Lake Park is just north of Saddler’s, and another beautiful spot for a trail walk, or bring a packed lunch and enjoy the picnic areas and open grassed areas by the lake.

The Cooper River Dog Park within Cooper River Park in Cherry Hill is a pawsome place nearby to Oaklyn where your pup can enjoy some off-lead time.

The broader Cooper River Park is a huge area that follows the Cooper River Lake, and is also very dog-friendly, however you will need to put Fido back on a lead once you leave the dedicated dog space.

Adjacent to Evans Pond is Challenge Grove Park, also very pet-friendly and a scenic place to visit. Challenge Grove covers 18 acres and features a bike path, manicured garden, picnic facilities and a playground.
