    Hi there, I'm Shanna! I have loved having dogs around me all my life, from one grandmother's obedience show dogs to the other grandmother's many adopted strays to the rescued Boxer who was my best friend as a kid, to the goofy fluffball spaniel back home in NH who shuns me whenever I pack to come back to Boston. I personally took both of my dogs through obedience training classes, and worked as a walker and sitter for neighbors for several years. I have been a pet sitter for oodles of other animals, from cats to chickens, and have several years of equestrian work and training experience as well. I can't have a dog with my current work schedule and apartment, so helping your furry friend get some exercise will be a wonderful way for me to get some canine companionship! I can't wait to meet your dog!

    I grew up with a Shetland Sheepdog/Border Collie mix and a Samoyed. In addition I love all animals. When I travel, I make a point to go the the local zoo, if one exists, and pet shops. Also, I lived overseas for twenty years, so I have learned to adapt to all kinds of new circumstances, conditions, surprises etc. Finally, I am conscientious, responsible, honest and reliable.

    “A walk a day keeps the vet away!”

    Hi! I'm Ellie and the most important fact to know about me is; I love animals! I moved to Natick from California where I was a dog walker for five years. I grew up in rural NY, we always had at least two dogs plus a bunch more critters. I recently graduated from Humboldt State University were I studied wildlife biology so I can help save all the animals. I am a natural with dogs of all sizes, some training experience, lots of energy for walks, and I can't wait to meet your best friend!

    Hi my name is Jill and I am the proud owner of an English Bulldog, Queen Cookie. I recently moved to Boston and Queen Cookie is living back home in CT with her Grama. I miss walking my furry companion and figured WAG was a great way to fill that void. I am comfortable walying dogs from 10 pounds to 120 pounds and can not wait to meet your fur baby!

    I am taking classes online right now and my time is flexible. I have an English Bulldog named Henry who only ever wants to go for car rides. I am always trying to find ways to exercise and keep moving so I would truly love to play or walk with your dog.

    Acton is a densely packed town nestled close to others in the region. North Acton is a peaceful, lower populated area full of green spaces. One of the best treats for good dogs in North Acton is a trip to NARA Park. NARA (Nathaniel Allen Recreation Area) is a large, multi-use park with many areas for play and walking. Your pup can enjoy leashed walks around the many NARA walking trails. Access to other portions of the park, from the beach to special events, can vary. Even without extras, NARA is a great place to visit in North Acton.

    Acton’s main street area is wedged between two beautiful places to take your dogs. The first is the Acton Arboretum. If you’re up for a stately, leashed walk through labeled and cultivated gardens, this is the place for you. There’s lots of great smells to smell and trails to walk. If you’re looking for room to roam, check out Grassy Pond Conservation Area instead. This large area of land contains over four miles of hiking trails. Dogs are welcome to be off leash if they are well behaved and within your control, but the park is not fenced. Shy pups and free spirits should be leashed for safety.

    Kelly Corner is home to the Great Hill Recreation Area. The simple 1.8 mile loop trail is popular with walkers and joggers--and dogs think it’s up to sniff too! The Great Hill Recreation Area offers preserved woodlands of historical significance. Talk a walk and discover what the land looked like before Acton became a thriving town all around it. Though densely populated compared to other areas of Acton, Kelly Corner is close to many other neighborhoods, parks, and attractions. Head to North Acton (a ten minute drive) for NARA Park or Town Center for a bite with man’s best friend.

    Town Center is a great place in Acton for a romp through the park followed by a bite to eat. Start your outing with vigorous exercise in one of two dog friendly parks in Town Center. Wetherbee Land and Pratts Brook Conservation Area are two great places to let your dog run. Your controlled dog is welcome on the hiking trails and through the park area. If your dog needs a refresher on off-leash manners, keeping them close to your side may be best unless the trails are empty. Then head deeper into Town Center for outdoor lunch at dog friendly Atlantic Sea Grill!

    West Acton is the place to go for leashed walking trails and plenty of fun. This packed area has four parks where dogs are allowed on leash. Some, like Woods on Mass Ave, allow controlled dogs off leash as long as they don’t prove a nuisance. Hitting the parks at off-peak hours is the best way to improve your pup’s manners off the leash. That way you can come back with a full picnic and not have to worry about clipping or unclipping them as the crowds allow. The wide variety of parks means touring West Acton will never get old.
