“A tired dog is a happy dog!”

Hi, my name is Jill. I currently own a 75lb rescue Doberman Pinscher. I have been around dogs all of my life. I used to show my cocker spaniels in obedience trials when I was a teenager. I taught basic obedience classes and have done some dog sitting. I love dogs and love being outside. I am a fast walker and I take pride in being able to tire out your dog. I am reliable and responsible and will take great care of your fur baby.

Dog Walking in Acton

Acton is a small residential community that was founded by gold miners working on the Red Rover Mine who decided to name the place after Acton in Massachusets. In times past, Acton aspired to become the state's capital, but all the efforts of Governor Henry T. Gage to officially move the capital there failed.

A really fun place in Acton is the Acton KOA, which welcomes canine campers! There, you can find plenty of activities, sports courts, a pool, playgrounds, hiking opportunities, and more! What's more important is that they also offer a dog park where you can let your dog exercise! If you prefer more traditional accommodation, check out the choices that Palmdale, around 12 miles away from Acton, offers. 

In case you need veterinary care for your pooch while you're staying in Acton, don't worry -- the community has its own veterinary clinic with reasonable prices.

Want to take your doggie on a dinner date? There aren't any dog-friendly restaurants in Acton, but you can find pawlenty in Palmdale, just 10 miles away!

If you want to hike or enjoy nature with your leashed dog, head 9 miles away from Acton to Vasquez Rocks, a vast nature park home to gorgeous rock formations more than 25 million years in the making!

If you need a challenge in the vicinity of Acton that you and your pooch can take on, try the Strawberry Peak Trail. This 6.7-mile trail is considered rugged in difficulty, so it's not for the faint of heart, foot, or paw! The end of the trail is pretty steep, so make sure you wear good walking shoes. Dogs have to be leashed at all times on this trail. Even though the trail is quite demanding, the scenic views from the top make the hard work well worth it! Don't forget to bring plenty of water for you and your dog!

If you don't mind traveling ruffly 40 miles away from Acton for a beautiful, moderately difficult hike where doggos are allowed to join you on-leash, we recommend the Big Horn Mine Trail. This trail is out and back, and it's 3.9 miles long. It's best if you use it from March to October. Because of its moderate difficulty, the trail is also kid-friendly, which makes it a perfect choice for a family hike! It will take you around 2.5 hours to finish the trail, so make sure you bring all the necessary supplies, including water, waste bags, and trail snacks.
