“Love is a four legged word”

My name is Abby and obviously, I love dogs! I've had them all my life. I've always known dogs to be apart of the family and have easily gotten along with pretty much any dog. I have 2 rescues myself, Lena and Bella who are total loves. In addition to my love for dogs, I'm creative, friendly and honest. I have my own home based home goods business and have a flexible sales management position with a floral company. Any questions feel free to ask!

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.

Trout Creek Park in Fairview is an amazing place to take the whole family, especially the ones with four legs. This park is set along Trout Creek, with direct access to the water. Kids will love the playground, and dogs are sure to love the walking paths and creek. You can walk your dog along a few short but scenic paths through the park and down by the water. There’s lots to sniff out by the creek bank! There are also water fountains, but bring your own dog bowl, as these fountains are too tall for Fido. Leashed dogs will find plenty to enjoy in this neighborhood park.

Despite the name, Cedar Beach Park is light on the “beach” aspect. Though there is some access to Cedar Creek, most of the park is divided into sports fields and playgrounds. It’s still a great place to take your dog, however! It’s large enough to tire out a dog with a lap or two. The variety of spaces give you a few new things to see every time you go. The park is often home to dog-friendly local events, from sports tournaments to fairs. If you’re just looking to walk by the water, don’t worry, you can do that too!
