Hello! I am Yvonne. When I am not walking dogs, I am an operational meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force. I moved back home to the Wilmington, DE area about 5 years ago after serving in San Diego, Boise, and the Seattle area. I love all animals. While I do admit that cats were my first love, it was not until 2004 when I got my first dog, a pug named Monster, and I became a dog person. After Monster, I rescued another pug from a shelter. His name was Budda. They have since passed. Currently I own a Bedlington Terrier named Payton. I have no children, so she is my "baby" and love of my life. Aside from owning dogs, I have had various roommates that owned dogs, Labs and Corgis. I have volunteered with shelters and pug rescues across the country. I worked part time at Fetch as a dog walker/pet sitter in Boise, ID. I love to run and be outdoors so dog walking is perfect for me. I am very excited to meet you and your wonderful pets!

“Caring, Experienced Pet care provider!!”

I have always lived in a household with at least one pet! My family had a big dog when I was really young and then got smaller dogs when we got older, so I have experienced all types of pups at all weight and ages. I started dog-sitting and walking in high school, so I have about 13 years of paid experience! Now I have my own 80 pd Rottie/lab mix, and I know how important it is for my furry buddy to get proper care when I'm not around. I can give that level of care to someone else who needs it!

“Every dog is the best dog.”

Hi! My name is John, and I've had dogs my entire life. Well... dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, reptiles, horses, fish... you name it, I've cared for it! I'm perfectly comfortable with whatever you've got at home. :) At the moment, my wife and I have three dogs, a husky, a small mutt and a pit mix, but I've had experience with dogs of all sizes and breeds. I do have a few other jobs, so if I decline a request please know it has nothing to do with you or your dog, it's just a schedule issue. :)

Dog Walking in Downingtown

Extraordinary landscapes, rolling hills, and charming villages are the most prominent things in Chester County. Located a short ride from Philadelphia, the county is an amazing place to stay or visit. Downingtown is a pleasant borough set in the heart of the county, offering a space for peaceful walks as well as leisure activities. Should your pal need medical attention, you'll find three veterinary clinics in the village and at least seven more in the surrounding areas that are happy to solve any misfortune your furry friend may have.

Looking for a must-visit place with the pup? Lloyd Park in the western part of the village is a great solution for busy owners and active pooches. The park is large and fenced, but not a dog park per se. Your mutt will like dipping his paws in the creek and enjoy running on the spacious grassy area on- or off-leash.

If you feel that this is not enough for an adventure, feel free to venture into the towns surrounding Downington. You'll find natural preserves in Coatesville (to the west) and Marshallton (to the north), as well as hiking and walking trails in Exton (to the east) and Lyndell (to the south).  

Staying in Downingtown with your pooch may be complicated, since the borough doesn't have much in the way of choice, and the available options are expensive. Don't worry, though; the surrounding areas have better options and prices, particularly Exton and West Chester.

Wayne is one of the many cities surrounding Philadelphia where you can have some fun with your pooch. The northwestern part of the area can''t be called bright or busy with lots of fascinating amenities for tourists, but your pooch will bark in excitement when he spots Hartford Park hidden behind Main Line School Night Association. The park has a special, designated area with tons of room to run, bark, frisk and run again. Go on a hike or let him explore the creek, and he'll fall head over paws with this park and beg to come back! And you may want to – the local crowd is always friendly, which is why socializing becomes one of the top priorities for visitors here. Make sure you supervise your pup at all times; the area is not fenced.
