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 Somers Point

Famous for being the oldest settlement in Atlantic County, Somers Point is a town packed with history and heritage, as well as plenty of natural beauty. With several green areas to explore, a beach to stroll on, dog-friendly restaurants to dine at, and a highly rated veterinary hospital, Somers Point has everything you could need for a pawtastic time with Fido.

If your pooch enjoys the sun, sand and surf, then the William Morrow Beach will be a big hit. This sandy stretch of shoreline is open to the public during the summer months, and features lifeguards, restrooms and plenty of parking. Dogs are welcome to enjoy the beach too, but do need to be kept on a lead at all times.

For dogs who prefer grass to sand, there are a few parks worth checking out in Somers Point. The John F. Kennedy Park is always popular, with its large playground, gazebo, new boat ramp and picnic area. The park also boasts stunning views out over Great Egg Harbor Bay.

When you and Fido start to feel hungry, stop off for a bite to eat at one of Somers Point's dog-friendly restaurants. Back Bay BBQ is a road-side BBQ shack with outdoor tables for you and Fido to dine at together, while Buona Vita specializes in traditional and authentic Italian cuisine.

With so much to keep you and Fido busy, there will never be a dull moment when the two of you are in Somers Point.
