Hi! I’m Zac! I love dogs, as I’m sure everyone on here does. I’ve had dogs ranging in size from my current 35lb pug mix to a 200lb English Mastiff growing up. With the help of my vet tech fiancé I like to foster dogs as well. I will primarily be in the Manayunk area. Hopefully me and your furry friend can have some fun as we get some exercise tackling the hills of the neighborhood.

“They call me the pet whisperer”

I am a life long animal lover. I have had 7 dogs over the years, so I am familiar with a large range of breeds and personalities. I have a lot of patience and understand how to communicate with dogs. I am young and agile so I can keep up with high energy dogs that want to play non stop. I am a very observant person, which helps me learn animals wants, needs and triggers quickly. I would love to become your furry friend's walking buddy!

“Hi, I'm Missy and I can't wait to meet your pup!”

I grew up on a dairy farm in PA where I spent my time alongside dogs, cows, chickens, goats, & cats. I now have my own rescue Chihuahua mix whose name is Rosie. I've worked all kinds of jobs, many on farms, all around the country (with Rosie by my side)... adding horses, llamas, rehabbed squirrels, & sheep to animals that have been in my care. I now walk dogs full time in addition to owning my own farm-sitting business.

Dog Walking in Reading

Located in Montrose, Pennsylvania, is the Endless Mountain Riding Trail. Don’t worry, it’s not really endless. You and your dog won’t be walking forever, but you’ll be wishing you could be after you see Pennsylvania’s beauty. The Endless Mountain Riding Trail is one of the 1,600 rail-trails that the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has built. Rail-trails are community trails that were built from old railways. You can decide whether your dog is off her leash or on it, but you are responsible for your dog at all times.

Godfrey’s -- Welcome to Dogdom is a four-acre dog paradise that has two dog parks -- one for dogs under 30lbs. and one for dogs over 30lbs -- a store, and a canine learning center. Both dog parks have running water from April 1 to November 1, toys, a covered area, and wading pools during the summer. A membership fee of $10 is required, and other packages are available. Godfrey’s -- Welcome to Dogdom is open Tuesday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This next dog park’s name describes what it is: awesome. Awesome Dawgs Dog Park is located on Princetown Road in Temple, Pennsylvania, and has a double-gated entry, a hiking trail, a 35-foot steel bridge, and a cleaning station. All dogs that come through the park are color coded to allow the staff to find activities suited for each dog. Awesome Dawgs has a $6 admission fee.

Mineral Springs Park is a great place to go if you want to take your dog for a walk. This leashed only park is tucked away from the noise of the street, and tends to be a less populated place. If you just want to put in the miles with an energetic dog, this is the place to do it! When you’ve worked up a sweat, swing by Reading Liederkranz. This German restaurant is dog friendly, and has an all you can eat German cuisine tour the third Wednesday of the month! There are occasional other dog-friendly events as well.

West Reading is home to the Reading Public Museum Arboretum. This destination is a great change of pace for dogs and humans alike! Dogs must remain on leash in the park in order to protect the plants, and the more than 15 art installations and sculptures in the Arboretum! Visit seasonally to see the more than 30 varieties of trees (and many more species of flowers!) in every beautiful aspect! The Arboretum is large enough that it could be worth spending a morning here, but the artful layout of the space makes it possible to get a good walk in under an hour if you’re ready to hustle.

The Jim Dietrich Dog Park in Riverview is a pawsome dog park to visit! There is a fenced in area within the larger Jim Dietrich Park, so depending on where you park, you may have to walk a little to find it. There are two fenced in areas in the dog park itself, one for large dogs and one for small dogs. The fenced in areas are simple, with the main feature being the grassy, open space. There are no water fountains, so bring a bowl and a jug with you to the park. Once inside the run, the popularity of the park ensures that your dog will have a playful time making new friends!

Nolde Forest is a great place to visit with your dog. Though very close to the heart of downtown Reading (a quick 15 minute drive), the forest can make you feel like you got away from it all! This is one of the best places in the area to walk energetic dogs who need to go the distance!

Energetic dogs will love the sheer size of this retreat. There are 10 walking trails that criss-cross Nolde Forest, covering more than 660 acres. Consult a map before you set off, and be sure to bring water (and a snack if desired!). The forest is left very natural; there are few benches and no fountains or other amenities.

Just fifteen minutes down the road from Reading is Baumstown, a neighborhood in Birdsboro. It’s worth the short trip, because Baumstown hosts the Danielle Ruiz-Murphy Center for Animal Welfare and Dog Park! This dog park is huge, with two fenced in areas. One is for large dogs, and the other is for small dogs. Small dogs are free to enter the large dog area if they’re not easily intimidated! The fenced areas are perfect for off leash play, and the park is a popular destination for social dogs who want to make friends and burn off their energy. Just bring your own water, as the park’s fountains don’t always work.
