“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 Essington

Essington is located on Tinicum Island in Pennsylvania. The Tinicum Township is the first known European settlement in Pennsylvania and was a Swedish colony. The Governor Prinz Park includes the remnants of the foundation of The Printzhof, the home of the first governor, Johan Bjornsson Printz, of New Sweden. The capital of the Swedish colony was originally near Wilmington, Delaware and was later moved to Tinicum Island. Essington loves its dogs, but no veterinarians reside inside of Essington. However, five clinics are within five miles of the town, and are at the ready to provide services to your fur baby.

Throughout town you can enjoy a view of the river and the activity of the airport. Manor Field has an informal dog park that includes a fenced area for dogs to run off-leash and exercise. Water is available nearby, and dog owners are expected to monitor the area and clean up after their pets. 

When visiting the area, stay at the Red Roof Plus Inn where one pup is welcomed to stay with you overnight. Pets are required to be crated when they are left in the room alone. Red Roof does not charge additional fees for your pup, and all rooms are dog-friendly.

Historical Essington invites you and your pup to enjoy its quiet community and serene parks .
