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

The Barking Slopes Conservation Area, despite the name, is not a dog-specific area. It is a fantastic place to bring your dog, however, it is a nature preserve. Dogs should stay on leash while in Barking Slopes Conservation Area so that you can leave nature as pristine as you found it! There's plenty to explore while staying on the path. This area has a very natural feeling, which means not every trail is for every skill level. If you're looking for a challenging hike, the hills of Barking Slopes could be just for you! Bring in your own supplies so you and your dog don't get thirsty!

Falcoln Park is a simple area that's natural, but not as natural as some other Kensington parks. It features open space throughout, making it pawfect for high energy dogs who need to walk a long way before they'll let you sleep at night! It's also mostly flat. This allows you to walk your dog all through the open fields and along the simple, dirt paths without undertaking a huge climb. The park doesn't have amenities, so be sure to bring in your own water to stave of dehydration for you and your pup. Despite how remote the park is, you're still in downtown, so resist the temptation to remove the leash!

Logan's Ferry Community Park is a small park that serves the mainly residential community of Logan's Ferry Heights. This park's location makes it a convenient place to walk your dog as part of the daily grind. It's small, but totally usable. High energy dogs may yearn for larger parks and longer walks, but for small dogs or dogs who are more low key, a couple of laps of this park should do just fine! The park also features a playground and a basketball court. After school or on the weekends, this small park can get crowded, so plan accordingly for your best experience.

Just two minutes across the border from New Kensington is the Kinlock neighborhood of Lower Burrell. Kinlock Firemans Park is a great place to take your pup! This compact park uses it's space wisely. Roughly one third of the park is devoted to an open, grassy area perfect for letting your dog lead the way. Hold the leash and go wherever their feet (and sniffing nose) take you! The other two thirds of the park are divided between a playground for children and a basketball court. If your dog isn't much of an ambler and needs a brisk pace, walking laps of the park isn't exciting, but it is practical.

Nine minutes from New Kensington is Downtown Lower Burrell. If you have a high energy, people-loving dog, this is the place to go to tire them out! Flyers Field is a huge, open green space for you and your dog to explore together. The area isn't really divided, but you can often find sections claimed for sports of one kind or another. Any space not in use is free to explore. You can wrack up your day's step count by walking laps or sides of the park, or just follow your dog's nose. With so much to see at this popular park, your dog is bound to find something interesting to them!
