“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.

Dog Walking in Newtown Square

A cozy little town nestled in the heart of Pennsylvania, Newtown Square is a peaceful reprieve that manages to be just close enough to Philadelphia to make a doggy day trip perfectly doable. However, all the excitement doesn’t have to be found outside the bounds of Newtown Square proper! With two dog-friendly restaurants to choose from, as well as a beautiful state park to spend the day hiking through, you and your pup certainly won’t be left wanting for activities. 

As a matter of fact, Ridley Creek State Park, centered in Newtown Square, is a location you just can’t miss -- a definite spot on your doggy to-do list. Dogs are welcome in designated areas, and although your pup will need to remain leashed, that’s not going to limit your pup’s sense of adventure. Make your way across the numerous trails available to you, and enjoy the sights and smells of the fresh Pennsylvania wildlife. You’ll need to bring clean drinking water for both you and your pup, as well as doggy waste bags to keep this park nice and clean. Maybe even bring some treats, both for you and Fido, and you all can have a regular puppy picnic!

Scoot your pooch on over to the northwestern area of  West Goshen, and you’re bound to have a blast! There is where you will find Roonie’s Canine Corner at Robert Lambert Park, a fenced-in dog park where your dog can have a ton of off-leash fun. Just large enough to get a good run in, but small enough to keep an eye on your pup, this corner is the place to be if you’re looking to socialize your pup with a friendly bunch. There are water bowls available throughout the park, though you may need to bring your own water. Toys are supplied as well.

Make your way to King Of Prussia, a little ways away from Newtown Square, and you’ll find yourself in the Valley Forge National Historic Park. Within the park, you’ll find numerous trails to choose from, but most notable is Pawlings Farm, an area that isn't typically crowded so you can enjoy a fun-filled day with your shy pup. You’ll need to bring water and waste bags, and make sure you and your pup stay on the main trail! There can be poison ivy off of the main path, so you want to be pawsitively certain your canine is safe.

On Wharton Street in Philadelphia, there’s a lovely hidden treasure of a park known as Columbus Square Dog Park. The park is fenced in, allowing your rover to run their heart out while you watch from a shady spot. The pea gravel is easy on puppy’s paws, and if your pup is the adventurous sort, there are plenty of stumps for your daredevil doggy to climb and jump around. Just be sure to keep a close eye on them! You’ll need to bring fresh drinking water, as well as your collapsible water bowl and doggy waste bags, but this little hole in the wall is perfect for a bit of privacy.

If you choose to make a stop at one dog park in Philadelphia, you’d be doggone crazy to avoid Queen Street, where you’ll find Mario Lanza Dog Park. With water fountains for doggy to play in, trees to sniff out, and benches for pet parents to rest on, you can’t go wrong with this scenic park. You can even make the trip at night, as the park is well lit for night use as well. Just bring some doggy waste bags and some fresh drinking water, and let your pup go dog wild in this large off-leash area.
