“I am your best friend’s “second” best friend!”

Hi! I grew up with a dog in the family as well as several other small animals. Now I’m the proud owner of a beautiful German Shepherd and a cute staffy so our house knows all about energy! Our favorite things to do are to go on long walks, sniff posts, and run around in our backyard in Canonsburg. I have met so many cool dogs and owners through this service over 2 yrs; it has brought such joy to my life! I cannot wait to meet your best friend and I’m hoping I can be their “second-best- friend”!

Hi, I'm Erika! I’m an enthusiastic, friendly dog walker with experience training & caring for dogs. I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life-my most recent dog, Peanut, a 12 y/o chihuahua, is my best bud. In puppyhood, I trained & raised him to be the obedient sweetheart he is. I've also helped past roommates train their pups & frequently dog-sit them. Dogs bring me such joy-just as I can count on them to brighten my life, you can count on me to give your pup the exercise and outdoor time they need

Dog Walking in East Pittsburgh

East Pittsburgh is a borough about 11 miles from Pittsburgh, adjacent to the Monongahela River and Turtle Creek. This area was where television was first demonstrated as a new medium for entertainment and information, and it was also the seat of  Westinghouse Laboratories. Today, it continues to figure prominently in manufacturing, technology and inventions. It is also a commuter town for those working in Pittsburgh. There are no veterinarians in East Pittsburgh itself, but there are at least 6 in the surrounding communities of Monroeville, North Versailles, Homestead, and Eastwood.

While there are no parks or dog-oriented activities in the small town of East Pittsburgh, there are many opportunities for outdoor-loving humans and their fur-pups to get outside and enjoy fun adventures. 

The Heritage Dog Park in Monroeville, just 4 miles away, is a fully fenced, off-leash dog park that features shade trees, running water and waste bag stations. Open from sunrise to sunset, it’s the pawrfect place to take your furry bestie for a romp and a run, or just a chance to socialize with other pups! There is a separate fenced area for small dogs, and both play areas are well-maintained and clean. So bark on!

If you and Fido are feeling adventurous, try out a couple of the utility right-of-way trails as well. They can be challenging, with steep hills and rocks, but worth the effort if you’re looking for a real workout for you and your furry bestie.

This neighborhood is where you’ll find Bear Hollow Park, which features a short loop trail that offers an easy uphill walk if you go in one direction, or a stroll along a brook with a downhill finish in the other. There is free parking on both ends. This is a pretty trail with its ample foliage, and the walk along the brook quiets the mind and gives your fur-pup an opportunity for a splash and a drink! You and he will have many opportunities to see birds and small wildlife along this trail, and its half-mile length makes it pawrfect for a lunchtime or after-dinner stroll. Enjoy!

There are lots of parks and green spaces in Pittsburgh, and some of them have their own dog parks within them. This is true of Frick Park which is in this neighborhood. With 644 acres, dog-friendly Frick Park is known as the city’s woodland park. It features many trails that meander among its steep valley slopes and rolling hills, and is an oasis in the midst of the city. The Frick Park Off Leash Exercise Area is fenced on 3 sides only, so plan to keep an eye on your pup while he runs and plays with the other dogs. The unfenced boundary is thick woods. The mostly grassy surface is easy on Fido’s paws, and there are benches for the humans’ comfort, too. A separate small dog area keeps those pups safe, and there are various play structures meant to tantalize and challenge. There's also a small natural pool where doggos can cool off and get a drink. It’s altogether furbulous!
