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.

Hello! My name is Keith and I have been a dog owner all my life. Growing my best friend was an all white coat German Shepard named "Star" and boy was he a star! Since then I've owned and taken care of many breeds from Dalmatians to Chihuahuas, and especially those lovable mix breeds. I am very familiar with all of the parks and pet playgrounds in center city Philadelphia and am always looking forward to meeting the next canine friend.

Hi! My name is Emily Gilinger and I am a graduate student at the University of Scranton! I currently volunteer at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter but would love to help owners care for their dogs in the community! I love animals and have been trained on how to walk all different breeds and types of “leash walkers”! I wish I could have a dog of my own, but living in an apartment prevents me from doing so. Instead, I’d love to help you with yours!

“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 Port Republic

Quaint, picturesque, and wholesome, Port Republic’s long and storied history goes all the way back to the Revolutionary War. The small town was one of the earliest ports in the region, and was used to ship muskets and cannonballs for George Washington’s army, while patriotic privateers lurked in coves around the coast, waiting to intercept ships carrying British weapons and provisions. 

These days, Port Republic pays homage to its heritage with its perfectly preserved historic district -- cultured canines might get a kick out of a leashed walk around the various sites. The town isn’t just rich in history, though -- Port Republic is surrounded by woods and marshland, so you and your pooch won’t have too "ruff" a time finding some nature to explore! There’s no veterinary services in Port Republic, but you’ll find a choice of clinics to take good care of your buddy in nearby Galloway.

There’s no designated dog park in Port Republic, but you and your pup are still sure to sniff out something to do! There are some really furrifically fur-friendly hiking spots in the area, which are ideal for some on-leash exercise. You might need to drive a little to get the best for your buddy, but you’ll find plenty of places to let your furry friend run free in the surrounding area!

If you and your pooch are looking for a pretty place to hike, look no fur-ther than Port Republic’s Mill Pond Trails! The trailhead can be a little difficult to find -- it’s tucked away at the end of Riverside Drive -- but once you two walk into this wooded wonderland, you may well decide the search was worth it! The moderately difficult loop trail is just under two miles long, making Mill Pond an excellent option for a quick morning or afternoon walk. Remember to bring your own water, as well as bags to keep this beautiful area clean!

Charming and unique, Historic Smithville is a real mutts-visit! This open air shopping area is chock full of independent stores with delightful, old-timey clapboard shop fronts, and your pooch is welcome as long as they stay on-leash! Different stores have different dog-friendly policies, however, so it’s best to check with staff before you and Fido wander in. The real gem of Historic Smithville, though, is the fabulous Paw Dazzle! Your pooch will find it im-paws-sible to resist a homemade treat from this dog boutique and bakery, and knowledgeable staff are always on hand to help owners pick out accessories.

Bass River State Forest is a popular spot for camping, and it’s easy to see why -- you could lose days or weeks exploring this huge preserve! This forest has something for nature lovers of all kinds -- there are facilities for boating, fishing, mountain biking, and most importantly, miles upon miles of pawesome, scenic trails for you and your pooch to explore! History buffs might enjoy strolling a stretch of the easily walkable Botana Trail, a 50-mile trek running through the old towns of Four Mile, Butler, Martha and Washington. Be aware, though -- bug spray is a must during the summer, as there are plenty of ticks lurking in long grass!

Make no bones about it -- if your pooch loves swimming as part of their off-leash adventures, they’ll have a whale of a time splashing about in the shallow waters at Longport Dog Beach in Somers Point! Even if your fur ball is water shy, they’re still sure to enjoy digging, a game of catch, or just running about on the sand. Unfortunately, though, water and clean-up equipment aren’t provided -- you’ll need to bring your own bags and bottle! As an added bonus, parking is free, but it’s best to get there early as space is limited.

You’d need to be barking mad not to bring your buddy to Brigantine! If you and your pooch feel more secure in a fenced area, the Natasha and Nikita Weiss Dog Park is an excellent exercise option. There’s plenty of space for your pooch to leap about and tire themselves out in, and bags and water are provided. You’ll need a permit from City Hall, though, and there’s no separate small dog area. If that’s a deal-breaker for you, don’t worry -- you and your pooch can still take a leashed stroll on the northern end of Brigantine Beach.
