I love dogs! I have experience with all sizes from XS Pomeranians to XL St. Bernard’s and Newfies, and everything in between. I'm a very active surfer, yogi, and hiker all over New England and love being out in the elements, including rain and snow. I spend a lot of time at the beach in any weather! I also work at South Boston Animal Hospital-you may have seen me behind the front desk. I would love to take your pup with me on a safe and fun adventure around the neighborhood!

“The road to my heart is paved with paw prints...”

I am a freelance filmmaker by day and an animal lover 24 hours a day! I have considered veterinary studies in the past but being overseas at the time made it impractical, as such studies weren't available in the region. I love the outdoors and exercising too. So it would be great to do so with the best of companions!

Dog Walking in Allston

Although Allston doesn't have very many dog-friendly amenities, it's still a really nice city to visit or live in with your barking buddy. The tree-lined sidewalks and beautiful Victorian architecture make it a picturesque place for a stroll with you your pawsome pal. Allston also boasts a free pet clinic which has earned great reviews from other happy hound owners. There are also around 27 vets within a 20-minute drive, some of which offer after-hours emergency services.

Ringer Park is the local dog park in Allston. This community-run park is 12.4 acres, so there's plenty of room for Fido to run. It was designed by the “father of city landscaping,” Fredrick Law Olmstead. Although locals note there are some issues with litter, this is a really nice park to hang out with your little (or large) fetching friend!

If you’re willing to take a short drive, you and your boisterous barker have 21 dog-friendly parks to choose from, like Tudor Street Dog Park, a 12-minute drive from Allston. It has a reputation for attracting responsible but relaxed dog owners, but unfortunately, only Cambridge residents are allowed to let their dogs off-leash here.

Overall, Allston is a really nice place to be with your canine companion (even though you might have to take some short car journeys to find activities).

Framingham is certainly a dog-friendly spot to visit, as it's home to 6 pet-friendly restaurants and one of the finest parks in the area. Callahan State Park has got to be the biggest attraction in this area, boasting an 820-acre expanse. This pawesome state park is only an 11-minute drive from Framingham city center. Your pup is permitted to walk off-leash throughout the park, but dogs must be under strict voice command. Your bounding buddy will have to get back on the leash if you want to explore the bike and horse trails. This park is a real treat, and you'd be barking mad to miss it!

Lincoln is a real nature lovers' place to be, perfect for you and your prized pooch to get some a breath of fresh air. Although there are no pet-friendly hotels or motels here, there are holiday rental accommodations available. Lincoln is right beside a large nature preserve and has a 15-mile hiking trail with a nice, easy gradient; dogs are welcome here, but only on leash. One of Lincoln’s finest attractions is the deCordova Sculpture Park. This park is the largest of its kind in New England and contains sculptures ranging from 30 ft tall to just 1 ft. Dogs are welcome, but only on leash.

Wellesley is a real beauty of a city to visit with your fetching friend. Although it doesn’t have any of its own doggie parks, there is a stunning park run by the horticultural society -- The Gardens at Elm Bank -- which welcomes dogs. There are also 8 dog-friendly restaurants to choose from, too. You’re also not far from several dedicated doggie parks. The Gardens at Elm Bank Estate really are a stunning sight, particularly in the fall. You and your furry friend (who must be on their leash at all times, unfortunately) will be in for a treat at this award-winning colonial estate house, with its manicured gardens, lawns and topiary hedges.

Weston is another picturesque New England town that’s well worth a visit with your furry friend. Although there are no pet-friendly hotels here, there are 5 in nearby Waltham (around a 4-minute drive from Weston). The best thing about this town for you and your canine companion is Cat Rock Park (ironic that that’s the name of a dog park!), which is highly rated by both locals and visitors alike. This huge, 130-acre park is peppered with meadows and forest trails to explore, and even has a clean lake and a river so your pooch can make a splash! Just remember to keep your pup within voice command range.
