“I love dogs so much that I adopted my own!”

I grew up around dogs and just recently adopted one of my own! I love to walk mine and my family’s dogs around the neighborhood and take them on the occasional hike. My new dog is full of energy so he’ll actually come running with me while I bike! Great with animals and people. I'm a grad student trying to make a little extra money for loan repayment and what better way than to meet and walk some furry friends?! I've worked with dogs of all sizes (5-150 pounds!).

Dog Walking in Oxford

Oxford has gone through a few names on its way to the town it is today. At various times, it was called both Oxford Crossing and Oxford Village. Today, it’s just known as Oxford, but losing a word doesn't mean its lost its charm! The town has barely five thousand residents, but it hosts six different veterinary clinics, which means that Oxford residents take the health of their furry companions very seriously. Start off your trip to Oxford secure in the knowledge that your best friend is going to be fine--no matter what.

Anyone with an interest in local history can enjoy the significance of Oxford's location. In the days before trains, it was the halfway point between Philadelphia and Baltimore. Pups are naturally a bit less impressed with history than their humans, but there’s plenty for them to enjoy in Oxford too. 

Aside from the fresh air and small town charms, dogs in Oxford can enjoy the amazing Chrome Serpentine Barrens Preserve. This landscape is peculiar and poisonous, and is a unique place to stop and visit. Don’t worry--the poison is in the serpentine rock that the land is made of, and common exposure won’t harm person or dog. It does lead to a stark, harsher climate for plants, and has allowed the land to retain some of the natural beauty of the area before humans settled it.
