“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!

Hi, I'm Becky! I have lived in Philadelphia for over 15 years. One of my favorite things to do is to explore this awesome city with a dog by my side. I've had dogs and cats my whole life, and don't think I could have it any other way. My current best friend/roommate is George, a 5 year old pit bull/lab mix. I understand that all dogs need discipline and respect, with lots of love and exercise. I'll make sure to always keep all dogs super safe and happy.

I have been walking dogs for 3 years and have been a dog lover my entire life. I grew up with a Standard Poodle named Collette. As an adult, I lived in a house with a lovely brown anxious Aussie. I helped to care for the dog- feeding her, walking her, giving medications, and keeping an eye on her to make sure she stayed out of mischief. We also regularly took in foster dogs of all shapes and sizes. I love getting outside and moving around, so I look forward to meeting and caring for your dog!

Dog Walking in Ridley Park

The small town of Ridley Park is an incredibly green area, offering up a range of recreational activities. With sprawling green parks to explore, as well as dog-friendly restaurants and a highly-rated veterinary clinic, there is so much for you and Fido to see and do in Ridley Park.

Ridley Park is home to a few pawtastic neighborhood parks, with one of these being the quiet and peaceful Eastlake Park. Complete with a playground, fishing dock, 14 acre lake and a short network of walking trails, it is always a pleasure to spend some time in this serene spot. Prospect Park Square is also worth a visit, because although this may be smaller, there are still plenty of grassy areas for your pup to sniff about in, as well as scenic areas for picnics.

If your pooch enjoys dining at restaurants, there are a couple of dog-friendly ones in Ridley Park well worth checking out. Big Daddyz Barbeque and Grill serves up barbeque-style dishes, with both individual plates as well as large sharing platters for you and Fido to feast on together. For dessert, head on over to Chill Out Ice Cream to sample some of their 125 flavors of soft serve.

Although Ridley Park is quite a small town, there is still so much to see and do here, especially when you have your pooch by your side.
