    “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 Erin! I’ve been working for Wag since 2017. I’ve walked thousands of dogs, ranging from tiny Yorkies to mighty Great Danes to week old puppies to elderly dogs - I’ve walked them all! I’m a huge animal lover and always treat every dog I walk with respect and endless amount of love. I understand how important dogs are to us, they are more than just a pet, they are family! I’m thrilled to walk your fur baby and give them the attention and exercise they deserve!

    “I love dogs!”

    Hi! I’m Autumn. I have absolutely loved animals ever since I was a child. I’ve grown up around cats and dogs. For the past 20 years I have been pet sitting for family and friends. I Adopted my Australian cattle dog mix 3 years ago & she is the light of my life!! She’s very high energy so I am used to running with her every single day! Dogs put a smile on my face and I would love nothing more than to return the favor by getting them out of the house for a nice walk and keeping them company!

    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!

    Hi, I’m Pam! I’m married with 5 children and 3 Dachshunds (Rocky, Pebbles, & Buster). I recently retired after working 31 years in the Insurance industry and now enjoy a healthy life style. Growing up in Northeast Philadelphia I got my first dog at the age of 12 and have been an animal lover ever since. I have always been a responsible care taker as I would dog sit for my neighbors when they went on vacation. Although I currently own small dogs, I have experience with large dogs too as I took my daughter’s Vizsla for a year as she went away to college in CA. I have a huge heart and I will care for your dog as it was my own making sure their needs as well as yours are met.

    Fitler Square

    Known for its elegant homes and cobbled streets, the charming neighborhood of Fitler Square is the perfect place to start your tour of Philadelphia. Your first stop should be Schuylkill River Dog Park, a popular spot with dog walkers in Philadelphia. Puppers can play safely in two separate fenced areas for large and small dogs complete with drinking water and biodegradable waste baggies. Once your buddy has worked up a good appetite, leash up and walk a few short blocks to grab a coffee or a cold one at one of the nearby dog-friendly coffee shops and bars. Along your walk, be sure to pass through the neighborhood's namesake park and "paws" to admire the fountain and sculptures.

    If you and your hound dog are hungry, Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square neighborhood is the place to be! Take your pick of a handful of Fido-friendly bars, restaurants, and cafes. Cuisine options include brunch, vegan fare, sweet treats, and so much more. All eateries offer dog-friendly outdoor seating, while some spots go the extra mile with complimentary water bowls and separate menus for canine customers. Some of the neighborhood's coffee shops even allow pups to accompany their humans inside to place their order. (Just make sure your buddy is on their best behavior!) Walk off your snack at Rittenhouse Square Park — you're sure to sniff out a new four-legged friend here, since dogs "pawsitively" love this park! If your fur-baby is more of a fashionista, you'll find some dog-friendly stores and big-box retailers where you can shop 'til you drop.

    Washington Square West

    Eclectic, thriving, and delightfully diverse, Washington Square West is the "pawfect" place for culture vultures and art enthusiasts. Lovingly dubbed "Wash West" by locals, this quirky quarter has a little something for everyone. Small businesses reign supreme here, particularly antique shops and bespoke boutiques. The only place your woofer will want to go, though, is Seger Dog Park. This volunteer-run dog park is fenced and beautifully maintained, all thanks to donations from generous pet parents. Seger Dog Park is a little quieter than some of the city's other off-leash areas, making it an excellent option for timid pups. For an experience like no other, meander through the mosaics on display at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. Well-behaved dogs and their humans are welcome to explore the indoor and outdoor art installations or take a stroll through the sculpture garden, over half a block in length.

    A stately residential neighborhood located a bone's throw from I-95 and the Delaware River, Queen Village is a "grrreat" spot for an off-leash frolic. Mario Lanza Dog Park is a hit with local residents and dog walkers in Philadelphia. A group of Queen Village residents and volunteers maintains this park with the help of donations. If you and your pup enjoyed your time at Mario Lanza Dog Park, why not pitch in to keep this spot pristine for future visitors? Benches and water are provided, but don't forget to bring the doggy waste bags. After your romp, perk up with a cup of java at one of Queen Village's dog-friendly coffee shops.

Chow down on a classic Philly cheesesteak, or savor something a little more exotic, like Vietnamese or Malaysian fare. Work off your meal at Columbus Square Dog Park, which features a mess-free surface of pea gravel and fun tree stumps for your pal to play on. Come prepared with plenty of drinking water and waste baggies — this small park doesn't provide any amenities. Afterward, pamper your pup at any of the neighborhood's pet boutiques.
