“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 Jenkintown

Jenkintown is a borough in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania that's only ten miles north of central Philadelphia. It has a population of around 4,500 people, and was first settled in 1697 but wasn't incorporated until 1874. Jenkintown is primarily a residential area, but there is a business district within the borough. One of those small towns with a big heart, Jenkintown has an excellent reputation for being a safe place to live with great school systems, and of course, it's an excellent place to raise canine children as well! Architecture buffs will get a kick out of many historically significant and unique buildings in Jenkintown, and the restaurant scene is also a big draw. Jenkintown has warm summers and cool winters, and if you're a rain lover, you'll appreciate that Jenkintown gets slightly more rain on average than other US cities.

Found right in the center of Jenkintown is Marzano Ristoranti, and this excellent restaurant serves up dishes that will appeal to everyone in your family. Their outdoor patio with pew seating welcomes dogs, so Fido can be by your side while you chow down on dishes like ravioli, spaghetti, burgers, and their pistachio gelato for dessert. You're going to love this dog-friendly town!
