Hi my name is Sarah and I live in Dickson City, PA. I have adored dogs since I was a little kid, and had a Black Labrador and Manchester Terrier growing up. I was a dog walker all throughout high school for my neighbors and friends. I loved walking their dogs, because I got to know them and become their friend. I am fantastic with dogs and know how to communicate with them on their level. I will accommodate your needs for your dog, and treat them like royalty. I hope to be your next dog walker!

Dog Walking in Scranton

Scranton, Pennsylvania has a rich history that includes being known as the "Electric City" as it was the first American city to get electric street lights in 1880, and in 1886, the nation's first solely-electrical powered streetcars. With a population just shy of 78,000, Scranton has a diverse population, and the city has something to offer everyone, and that includes dogs and dog owners, of course! To keep the city's pet population healthy, there are several veterinary offices in the city. In addition, there are many pawesome parks and trails for two-legged and four-legged creatures alike to explore!

If you're visiting Scranton, you must visit the famous Alfredo's restaurant. This popular place is well-known for appearing on the hit television show, The Office, which is set in Scranton. Alfredo's welcomes dogs on their patio, and they even provide heaters to keep you and Fido warm in the winter. At Alfredo's you can enjoy classic Italian dishes like cannoli and pizza trays, or you could sip on a refreshing martini. From enjoying a meal at a pet-friendly restaurant to exploring the Electric City on foot, Scranton has something to offer everyone no matter their tastes!

About 25 minutes northeast of Scranton is the city of Carbondale. Carbondale has a population just under 9,000, and there is plenty to do in this growing city.
