Hi! I’m Searra and I absolutely love spending time with dogs and I have dog sat for many family members and friends over the past few years. These sittings would usually be a week to two weeks long. I preferred staying with the dogs because dogs seem to get lonely quicker than cats or any other pet. I would take the dogs out for walks and then play with them after! I’m in college right now for psychology and I’m currently enrolled in a course known as AAI which is animal assisted interventions. This gives me understanding on dogs stress signs and aggression signs, even the calming signs they portray. Along with that I volunteered at the Washington humane society for about 2 year. There I would take the dogs out to play and get some sun!

Dog Walking in Youngstown

As a matter of fact, they have lost two percent (!) of their population in two years and have lost an amazing 60 percent since 1959! This is all due to the deindustrialization of the city after the steel mill strikes. However, what they lost in population, they gained in charm. Dog lovers still enjoy the city, and there are approximately 15,000 living in Youngstown.

Looking to let your furbaby run off-leash with other dogs? Paws Town at Boardman Park has about three acres of fenced-in fun with separate areas for big and little pooches. There are assorted toys and an agility course and benches and water fountains for the pups and their humans. Other nice features are shade trees, fire hydrants, and a wooded area for little hiking if you want.
