“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 Norristown

Norristown is a small borough city that sits on the north side of the Schuylkill River, just 20 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The area was first bought and incorporated as a town more than 300 years ago, and has since brought in different industrial companies to the area. The city also brings in a lot of dog lovers to the area, thanks to the number of dog-friendly public parks, outdoor activities, and 6 veterinarians.

The Norristown Farm Park is a state park that sits on the northwest edge of the city, taking up over 690 acres of open fields and thick forests. The state park is dog-friendly, and brings in plenty of people and pups to the area thanks to activities like hiking, jogging, biking, picnicking, wildlife viewing, fishing, and fetch! Dogs must remain on a leash, but can enjoy the 7+ mile trail system or relax in the shaded sitting areas, with access to water fountains, clean-up stations, and trash bins.

The Bartasch Park is another popular place to take your pup, thanks to the beautiful scenery it offers in the city's center. With a large area of forests and shaded trails, you and Fido can enjoy a peaceful walk. There's also plenty of open space to run around a play, a creek for fishing, and picnic shelters. Don't forget to leash Fido up before heading out!
