“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.

Hi, I’m Sorrel, and I’ve lived around animals my whole life. I love cats and dogs, and cows, too! My most formal experience working with animals was taking blood samples from a cow at UF’s veterinary college. I am confident your dog and I will get along famously on a nice, healthy walk.

Dog Walking in Elkins Park

When you walk down the streets of Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, you're exploring a city that is over 300 years old -- older than our nation itself! The historic Richard Wall house, which is still standing, was built in 1682, and has been expanded throughout the years. Known simply as "Wall House", it's now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and was passed down through the Wall family for over 150 years. You can see it when you and your dog take the walking tour around the city.

There are many unique historic sites in Elkins Park that you won't want to miss, and there's also plenty for your pup to do, too. Grab a leash and go for a walk at Tacony Creek Park. This is a quiet little park that goes through the greenbelt. Your pup will love making a splash in the stream along the path. The way that the trees hang over the stream and path will make you feel like you are in an enchanted forest. It is so peaceful that you'll forget you are in the middle of the city, which makes it the pawfect place to share a quiet moment with your furry friend.

Alverthorpe Park is another great green spot that is dog-friendly. There is a no-dog zone here, but it is on the other side of the fence. The entire area is lined with a paved walking trail designed for you to walk your dog, ride bikes, or just take a stroll. There are benches along the track and trash cans as well.

Elkins Park is the pawfect destination for nature lovers and history buffs alike!
