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 Franklin Park

Franklin Park is a borough without an address to its name. It can be tough to determine exactly what's inside and outside of this borough, because everything inside boasts a Sewickley address. One thing you absolutely can be sure of? Inside this borough is a dog-gone good time! There's plenty to explore, and with all of Allegheny County at your finger tips you know the good times are going to keep coming. There's one animal hospital within the borders of Franklin Park, and dozens more in the surrounding area. 


The first place you should go is Acorn Park. This charmingly named little park is tucked away in a residential part of Franklin Park. This park has a full sized basketball court. It also has a small playground stocked with the basics. Your dog will prefer following Acorn Park's walking paths through the trees! 

If you're looking for more action, Blueberry Hill Park is the largest recreation area in Franklin Park! There are basketball and tennis courts, several playgrounds with various equipment scattered through the park, and walking paths to bark about! Blueberry Hill Park is often busy, with peak hours being weekend mornings and weekday afternoons. 

Franklin Park is a great base camp for exploring the whole area!

Inside Franklin Park is a large, simple park called Old Orchard Park. This park is an ideal spot to bring your dog for a nice long walk! The area is divided into two parts, an open grassy field and a densely forested area. The paved walking paths do a figure eight through the park, allowing you to stick to either side or walk around the entire perimeter. The park lacks other amenities, but there’s so much room that you won’t even notice! Take the smaller loop if you want to be able to easily customize your walk to you and your dog’s needs.

Thirteen minutes from Franklin Park, the Sewickley Heights Borough Park is an amazing place to take your dog! Dogs can be off leash in this park as long as they’re more than 100 feet from the parking lot. Be aware that this park isn’t fenced, and is popular with cyclists and occasional equestrians. If your dog is still working on coming when called, you may want to leash up. Whether your dog is on leash or off, there’s plenty to do here! From walking trails to a stream for wading, this expansive park has tons of room to roam. Bring your own water!

One minute across the border from Franklin Park is the neighborhood of East Bell Acres. The Bell Acres Recreation Park is a convenient place to take your dog to stretch your legs and sniff out some fun! The main attraction of the park is their large baseball diamond and bleacher area. There is a park around the outside of the field, and an accessible strip of grass as well. This park is great if you’re looking for a quick walk, or your people-loving pup wants to watch a game! Bring a doggie bowl with you to help your dog take advantage of the fountains!

Potter Park is a five minute drive from Franklin Park. This all natural park is a great place to explore with your dog! This park is heavily forested, with a simple path that leads down and around a large pond near the center of the park. The area is used for dog walking, jogging, and bicycle riding! Its all natural state means you should carry in any supplies you may need. Potter Park is not large, with the path running half a mile, so the most you’ll probably need is a bottle of water and a doggie bowl to share with your pup!

Despite being well within the boundaries of Franklin Park on a map, Linbrook Park has a Sewickley address. Linbrook Park has something to please everyone in your pack! The sports fields range from soccer and lacrosse to cricket! There’s a playground for kids, and a disc golf course through the woods. The trees will probably be your destination for a nice long walk. Follow the dirt trail with your (leashed) dog to explore the woods and get in a great walk under a gorgeous backdrop! Bring some water with you—the park is very natural, with no fountains on the trails!
