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

Dog Walking in Plum

Plum is a plum location for anyone who wants the convenience of the Pittsburgh suburbs. Plum is part of the East Hills suburbs, and its close location makes it popular with everyone who loves the city, but also loves the outdoors. There's a veterinary office right in Plum, but you can also find half a dozen more within a twenty minute drive. Whatever your pet's needs are, you'll never be far from help. 


Plum has a great park that you have to visit during your stay. The Larry Mills Park has a lot to offer an energetic dog and your whole family. In addition to the full playground, Larry Mills Park also has sports fields and courts. Basketball, tennis, and baseball all have a place here. Set up under the shaded picnic benches for the lunch of a lifetime. If you're just trying to walk your dog, not host a family reunion, this park has space for that too. Stick to the paved walking path that loops the interior of the park. You can pass the major attractions and do some people watching while you work out your dog's energy. 

Plum is a great destination, and a great home base for exploring the greater suburban area!

Boyce Park is a huge park with plenty to offer, and just two minutes from Plum! The biggest draw for kids and adults is the seasonal pool, which comes with its own wave maker. Drop the rest of your group off, leash up your dog, and go for a relaxing walk through Boyce Park's wooded paths. Read up about native plants and animals on the placards placed around the park as you go! The dog-friendliness doesn't end with green space and room to roam; this park offers water bowls for dogs at their drinking fountains! Boyce Park is large enough that shy dogs should have enough room to get away from the crowds while walking.

The Barking Slopes Conservation Area is just ten minutes from Plum by car. It's in the Logan's Ferry Heights neighborhood of New Kensington, and it's definitely worth a visit! Despite the name, Barking Slopes is not a dog park. It is a gorgeous conservation space that welcomes dogs as long as they stay on leash, and their owners commit to picking up after them. Leave the space nice for the native animals! Speaking of animals, this conservation area is beloved by birders both seasonally and year round. Follow the paths through this conservation area to see some of its native beauty.

You can't come to Plum without driving the eleven minutes across the town divide to the Penn Hills Dog Park in Penn Hill. This park is perfect for dogs of all stripes... and spots! The park is large enough that even the most energetic dog can work their energy off. It's divided into size sections, so small dogs and large dogs can both find appropriate friends. The park is regularly stocked with waste bags and stations throughout that make cleaning up after your pet a snap. Best of all, this pupular destination brings in pets from all over. New friends are definitely in the cards, no matter when you come to the park!

Just eight minutes from Plum lies the Monroeville neighborhood of Garden City. This neighborhood lives up to its name by providing two great parks. The smaller of the two, Evergreen Park, manages to fit in a small playground, tennis courts, a basketball court, and a full size baseball diamond. There isn't a lot of room left over, but you can still walk your dog around the perimeter or over any sports field not in use. If you want more options, go to Glenwood Park instead. This densely wooded park is perfect for long walks with your dog. There's also an open field for sports or dog walking, whomever gets there first!

Eight minutes from Plum is Turnpike Gardens, a small neighborhood nestled among the freeways that run through Monroeville. Ferndale Park is a U-shaped park that makes the best of the limited space. One end has tennis courts! The rest of the park is largely wooded walking paths, making this a perfect destination for anyone looking to get in a good walk. Dogs will love following their nose through the trees. The park's size makes it perfect for shy dogs; you should have plenty of room to spread out and find your own space! Dogs have to be leashed in Ferndale Park.
