“Always happy to see your pup!”

Hello! I'm Chris, a recent Temple graduate and pro dog-walker. My friends and relatives always call on me to sit their furry companions because I'm friendly, reliable and great with their dogs! I know that each dog and their owners have their own specialized needs, and I'm here to be attentive to those needs. In addition, with my degree in psychology, I can help your animal to maintain healthy behaviors to increase their wellness and happiness. Thanks for your patronage!

Hi, I'm Becky! I have lived in Philadelphia for over 15 years. One of my favorite things to do is to explore this awesome city with a dog by my side. I've had dogs and cats my whole life, and don't think I could have it any other way. My current best friend/roommate is George, a 5 year old pit bull/lab mix. I understand that all dogs need discipline and respect, with lots of love and exercise. I'll make sure to always keep all dogs super safe and happy.

I have been walking dogs for 3 years and have been a dog lover my entire life. I grew up with a Standard Poodle named Collette. As an adult, I lived in a house with a lovely brown anxious Aussie. I helped to care for the dog- feeding her, walking her, giving medications, and keeping an eye on her to make sure she stayed out of mischief. We also regularly took in foster dogs of all shapes and sizes. I love getting outside and moving around, so I look forward to meeting and caring for your dog!

“I'm there for your dog as if he/she were my own!”

I've loved dogs my entire life. I strive to be a good dog person, meaning I try to assist friends in training and gladly help out when needed. I have not met a dog I didn't like and vice versa. I have always had dogs of my own and made sure they were trained and socialized.

Dog Walking in Darby

Darby is a bustling little town with all the charms of small-town life, located 13 miles west of Philadelphia, and only 5 miles from the Delaware River. The town has lots of rich history since being incorporated in 1853, and is even home to the fifth-oldest all-volunteer Fire Department and the second oldest library in the United States. Throughout the years, Darby has shown its love for its four-legged residents and has lots of spaces around town that are dog-friendly.

Bartram Park is the largest public space in the city, with over 30 acres of land on both sides of Darby Creek. The area has thick forests, open fields, and a small beach along the creek. The beach is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and even has a spot for fishing and a boat launch. There are nature trails, paved walkways, water fountains, benches, and trash bins available.

Powell Park is on the southern side of the city, lined with tall oak trees with a grassy terrain for multiple uses. The area is pleasant and gets lots of shade from the surrounding trees, which makes it a great place to bring Fido to run around and play. There's a basketball course, a playground, a swimming hole, and fishing pier. Dogs must remain on a leash inside the park, and remember to bring water and clean-up bags!

Darby is fantastic in many ways for pups and humans, thanks to its large parks, a walkable downtown area, and one animal hospital.
