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.

“Your friendly neighborhood dog walker”

I started pet sitting when I was in high school. Several of my friends had dogs that I would care for while they were away. To make extra money in college I began to walk and then board a local Shiba Inu; a gig I kept until I started working full time. I have always loved animals, but was unable to have any as a child because of allergies some of my family members have. Now my wife and I currently have two dogs (a beagle and a havanese/poodle mix), three cats, two rabbits, and a conure.

Dog Walking in Pennington

The borough of Pennington may have only fewer than 3,000 people, but it has many amenities to offer a person with a pup in the family. Folks will find three veterinary clinics in the borough to take care of most of your canine friend's needs. The parks in and around the borough also make for some great exercise outdoors.  

Kunkel Park has great green spaces for a person and a leashed dog. A picnic area greets its visitors for a relaxing outing with a canine companion. The nearby county park, Mercer Meadows, has five trails to explore on a leash. These trails range in length from .7 miles to 4.2 miles. They are either mowed or gravel and aren't difficult for a person and dog. The Lawrence Hopewell Trail actually connects to Rosedale Park, which has a trail that connects back to the main street in Pennington.

In town, a person and pup may want to grab a bagel for breakfast or lunch at Pennington Bagel Experience. The outdoor chairs will welcome you and your canine companion. For a sweet snack anytime, Viva  Gelato on Main Street has five outdoor tables which will make your visit with a four-legged friend comfortable. Viva Gelato sells a variety of sweet bakery items as well. 

For a family with a dog (or three), Pennington makes for a great visit or perhaps even a permanent home!

Dogs living in Pennington are lucky because they get to play at Rosedale Dog Park! This five-acre masterpiece of a dog playground features a large and small dog area for leash-free fun and exercise. The two areas are double-gated for safe entry. The area is an expansive green grass field. Manmade hills lessen the flatness of the landscape. Tunnels and an obstacle course adds to the exercise. A doggie-engineered water fountain makes hydration just a lick away. Human companions will find sanctuary in the gazebo positioned in the middle of the dog park. Picnic tables are scattered throughout for easy supervision of your playing pup.
