“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!

“I'm there for your dog as if he/she were my own!”

I've loved dogs my entire life. I strive to be a good dog person, meaning I try to assist friends in training and gladly help out when needed. I have not met a dog I didn't like and vice versa. I have always had dogs of my own and made sure they were trained and socialized.

Dog Walking in Upper Darby

West of Philadelphia, you'll find the diverse and dog-friendly township of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. Over 100 ethnic cultures live in harmony within Upper Darby in the equally diverse architectural housing types. As you walk your dog, you will see tree-lined neighborhoods, turn-of-the-century developments, and even densely populated rowhouses. In Darby, you and Fido can find the neighborhood of your dreams with every walk delivering a small piece of history. The land around Upper Darby was originally settled as New Sweden, but soon after was conquered by the Dutch to become New Amsterdam, before finally being settled by William Penn — making it the first colony of Pennsylvania. You and your dog can explore historic landmarks like the Lower Swedish Cabin, which was built along Darby Creek in 1654.

If your pup is more of a modernized mutt, you can also visit the Town Theater — a music venue which has hosted acts like Bruce Springsteen and David Bowie. Pet parents feel comfortable knowing that there are 5 veterinarians right in town. There is also a single pet shop in town with dozens more in the surrounding area. If you're a fan of bringing your dog on scenic hikes than rest easy knowing that Upper Darby is in no short supply of nature preserves and dog parks. This Pennsylvania township is tail-waggin' good time!

Will your dog never turn down an offer for a trip to the dog park? Just above the Llanerch neighborhood is the Haverford Reserve Dog Park, which packs in a day's outing worth of fun for your Fido! The completely fenced-in area of Haverford is mostly maintained by volunteers from the community. This unique experience is a social outlet for you and your pup. The volunteers who maintain the park ask that both owners and dogs are obedient so that everyone can have a fun time. There are separate areas for big dogs and little dogs at Haverford Reserve Dog Park, and tails are always wagging!
