“I am your best friend’s “second” best friend!”

Hi! I grew up with a dog in the family as well as several other small animals. Now I’m the proud owner of a beautiful German Shepherd and a cute staffy so our house knows all about energy! Our favorite things to do are to go on long walks, sniff posts, and run around in our backyard in Canonsburg. I have met so many cool dogs and owners through this service over 2 yrs; it has brought such joy to my life! I cannot wait to meet your best friend and I’m hoping I can be their “second-best- friend”!

Hi, I'm Erika! I’m an enthusiastic, friendly dog walker with experience training & caring for dogs. I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life-my most recent dog, Peanut, a 12 y/o chihuahua, is my best bud. In puppyhood, I trained & raised him to be the obedient sweetheart he is. I've also helped past roommates train their pups & frequently dog-sit them. Dogs bring me such joy-just as I can count on them to brighten my life, you can count on me to give your pup the exercise and outdoor time they need

Dog Walking in Wilkinsburg

Wilkinsburg is a borough of Pittsburgh. It can be tough to know what's inside this area, since the locations inside still have Pittsburgh addresses. On the plus side, it's easy to know what you're close to: everything! Wilkinsburg is a fantastic base camp for all things Pittsburgh, from doggie dining to any sort of park your pup's heart desires! 


Start your exploration with Hunter Park. This large, open park is a gorgeous field. It's also within the bounds of the Wilkinsburg borough! This is a great place to take an energetic dog for a nice, long walk. You can bring your own team to play a little sports, or leash up your pup for a quiet walk. This park is light on amenities, but space is a premium in Wilkinsburg! 

You can also explore Ballfield. This simply named park is a gathering place for local sports teams. There's an open grass area and a small baseball field. Your leashed dog can explore the field at your side. If there's a game in progress, you can skirt the edges for a convenient walk within the boundaries of Wilkinsburg. 

Wilkinsburg is the Pittsburgh borough to beat, and when it comes to dog-friendliness, it's not giving ground!

East Hills Park is a two minute drive from the borough of Wilkinsburg. This park is a gorgeous green space in the middle of a highly residential area. It’s broken up into two main parts. The first is a large baseball diamond. The second lumps the rest of the amenities together, such as a small playground, two tennis courts, and a few picnic tables. There are paths that connect these features, but your dog is more likely to enjoy a roll in the green grass. Leashed pets are welcome in East Hills Park.

Koenig Field is in the Regent Square neighborhood, and straddles several boroughs, but Wilkinsburg claims the park! It’s a great asset, too, because this classic park has a little something for everyone. Looking for a park you can bring the whole family too? Look no further! This park has a playground for kids. It also features tennis and basketball courts. Open green space can be set up to support other sports. Dogs will love sitting by your side at the picnic tables, rolling in the grass, or walking the path with you! This park has an oval walking path that lets you log how many miles you’ve covered with your dog!

Frick Park is a nine minute drive from Wilkinsburg, and it’s absolutely worth it. This park is huge! It has a playground and sports fields, but the major draw is the off leash dog park! You have to walk deep into the park, but follow the barks to the most fun your dog can have in Squirrell Hill South! This designated off leash area is not fully fenced, so be careful if your dog is still working on coming when called. It’s set deep into the park, so so there’s little risk in the immediate area. When in doubt, keep your dog on leash on the walking paths instead!

Westinghouse Park is the main attraction for dog walkers in Homewood South. This park isn’t huge, but it has a little of everything that your dog needs to stay engaged. There’s a small playground and basketball court in the park, so your dog can people watch during your walk. There’s also a wide meadow perfect for exploring! You can follow the paths between attractions for a gentle walk. Homewood Playground is the place to go if you need to get a dog walk in while your kids play sports. You can walk laps around the tennis and basketball courts, or enjoy a break on a shaded bench.

The Pat Seneca Memorial Field is a nine minute drive from Wilkinsburg in the city of Pittsburgh. This field is a great place to go for a long walk with your dog. The entire field leads to a simple walking path that loops this long, thin space. You should bring your own water, and remember to keep your pup on leash. Looking for something a little more exciting? Bullock Pens Park is another local, natural park. Its paths are tree lined, making them more comfortable to tackle on a hot day. Be sure to bring your own water.
