My name is Jackson. I am 28 years old and live in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Growing up I had a wire-haired Viszla named Max who was always at my side throughout my childhood. Recently, I've been taking care of a my friends' Jack Rustle Terrier and Rottweiler when they go away. They trust me to care for their pets after they see how well I interact with them. I get along great with all animals I've encountered, but it's no secret I love dogs the most.

Hello there! My name is Nick and I love dogs! They have always been a part of my life and seem to naturally like me. I’d say I’m a good alpha and they always seem to listen to me very well. How different dogs should be treated comes intuitively to me as I have a knack for reading body language. I have moved to Portland about five months ago now, in which time I’ve been walking dogs with my girlfriend who is our neighborhood dog walker. I’ve met many different dogs throughout this time which has increased my knowledge of handling all sorts of different breeds. I hope to give your dogs a fantastic break and make their walks as enjoyable as possible. My goal is to make your dogs as happy as I can because I know these breaks mean a lot more than we could ever know to these little guys. That, as well as my love for all living things, is why I will be sure to give them the best experience possible!

“Taking care of your pups, one walk at a time!”

Hi there! In my family there are 3 rescues ranging from personalities and size; the spunky chihuahua mix(who is also the alpha if you ask her), the cowardly black lab mix, and the cuddly, substantial boxer. Since our members are rescues who all came from different pasts, their issues range as much as they do so I have experience working with more sensitive or timid dogs who need a little extra patience as well as dogs whose energy outlasts their attention span.

Dog Walking in Phillipsburg

The town of Phillipsburg, New Jersey has a single dog park that came out of a unique program by the local government. Called the community policing initiative, several years ago about twenty police officers were assigned to different neighborhoods in the town. In this particular neighborhood, the assigned officer decided to transform an underutilized, overgrown park into a dog park, thereby solving several community problems and creating a beautiful new space for the town’s canine residents.

Unfortunately, all dogs are banned in public parks in the town, except for the dog park, so this park would function as one of the town’s only places to exercise dogs in a natural area. As pet owners know, a dog that has been worn out from a day of play is a happy, well-behaved pet. In addition, the park would see more use from the citizens.

In 2014, the park opened. It features an optional small dog section, a sanitation station, and a wide-open 2-acre space for playing and running. Often, you’ll find a regular crowd of friendly locals and their spunky pets hanging out in the evenings.
