“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.

I’m Kristy and I’d love to walk your dog! As a pet owner/animal lover, I understand how much your dog means to you. Your dog’s safety and well-being is my top priority.

If you want a reliable, trustworthy person, that actually loves what they’re doing, then I’m the walker for you. Seriously, I can’t wait to walk your dog.

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 Thornton

Thornton is a small town in Pennsylvania, only 30 miles west of Philadelphia and 10 miles north of the Delaware River. The town has been around since the early 1700s, and used to be known as "Yellow House" thanks to the iconic Yellow House Inn that was built in 1750. Today, Thornton thrives and lives up to its small-town charm, even among dog walkers thanks to the numerous places to walk Fido, even in the small area.

The Natural Lands' Wawa Preserve is a 98-acre area that is dog-friendly to residents and visitors. This narrow preserve takes up space on both sides of Rocky Run Creek, with a 1.2-mile trail running alongside the creek. The trail is made from dirt and provides access to the areas sight-seeing overlooks, and a small field for picnics and recreational activities. Dogs do not have to be on a leash inside the park, and have access to water fountains, benches, and trash bins. The park connects to a trail that loops through the city called the Darlington Trail. The trail is made of concrete and crushed stone and requires pups to be on a leash while in use of it. Don't forget to bring clean-up bags and water onto the trail!

Although the nearest vet is 5 miles away in the town of Media, that hasn't stopped the city of Thornton from providing for its four-legged pals in its parks and trails. Come check them out today!
