“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!

Dog Walking in Folsom

Folsom is located within Ridley Township in Pennsylvania, approximately 12 miles from Philadelphia. It’s a bedroom community for commuters, with little industry within its borders. It is also located in a beautiful natural area with potential for outdoors-loving people and their pups to find lots to do. Folsom also hosts one veterinarian, ready to get your pooch up and playing in no time!

When you’re really hungry in Folsom and you ask locals where you can fill up and take your doggo with you, you’ll hear, “Folsom Philly Pretzel Factory.” With 2 outdoor benches for sitting with your buddy, you’ll be satisfied and happy. Handmade and hand-twisted pretzels are used for everything from appetizers with mustard, to cheesesteak sandwiches and pretzel sausages. They even have dessert pretzels! With no extra sugars, no fat and no cholesterol, these are pawsome treats for Fido, too, especially if you tuck a hot dog into one. Arf!

If the dessert pretzel doesn't excite you or the pup, amble over to Rita's Italian Ice on McDade and get the two of you one of Rita's signature ices. Or try one of the many different and unique flavors of ice cream, such as Swedish Fish or Marshmallow Peanut Butter. The two of you are sure to find something irresistible to enjoy at their pet-friendly outdoor tables!

Afterwards, work off those calories with a quick walk or romp in Triangle Park.

Whatever your reason for being in the Folsom area, you’re sure to find something to do with your fur-buddy that you will always remember.
