“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 Andover

Located about thirty miles north of Boston is the town of Andover, Massachusetts. Founded in 1646, Andover’s residents call it the “home of America.” Full of small-town charm, but close enough to a major city to have some hustle-and-bustle, Andover is a great place for dog owners to find things to do with their pup in tow. 

The town of Andover has five restaurants where your pooch can join you while you eat, so you have plenty of options if you’re looking to dine out. There are also a few veterinarian clinics within the town, and if you need an emergency veterinarian service, there’s one just outside of the city, so you can feel a bit better should anything happen to your canine companion. 

If you’re looking for dog parks, though, you’ll need to go to one of the larger, nearby cities, as Andover doesn’t currently have a dog park. Luckily, there are a few different dog parks within twenty minutes of Andover. Whether you’re looking to go for a walk or dine out with your dashing dog, Andover has something for you and your dog!

This Italian restaurant serves up pizza, pasta, calzones, and more. Their outdoor tables are dog-friendly, as long as your dog is on a leash and well-behaved. Don’t forget to try dessert! If you want a quick coffee, check out Ultimate Perk. This coffee shop has several dog-friendly outdoor tables. They also serve tasty pastries. Your dog must be on a leash at all times.

Located about twenty minutes east of Andover is the city of Lowell, home to Lowell Dog Park. This dog park is off-leash and completely fenced in, allowing your dog to burn off any pent-up energy in a safe environment. Locals say this park is usually pretty quiet, so it’s a great place for you to socialize a dog that isn’t used to being around other dogs. There are plenty of benches for pup parents. Water and waste disposal bags are not provided. Lowell Dog Park is free and open to the public.

About thirty minutes south of Andover is the city of Melrose, which is home to Melrose Dog Park. This spacious, off-leash dog park allows your dog to socialize with other canines and make pawesome new fur-iends! There aren’t separate sections for large and small dogs, though, so keep that in mind if your pup gets anxious around differently-sized dogs. Locals also warn that this park becomes quite muddy after it rains, so make sure to bring along a towel if the weather’s been bad the past couple of days. Water and waste disposal bags are not provided, so you'll need to bring your own.

There are also two popular pizza restaurants in North Andover, both of which are dog-friendly: Amici’s Pizzeria and House of Pizza. All of these restaurants have dog-friendly tables on their patios, which are open if the weather is nice. Your dog must be on a leash at all times, and he should also be on his best behavior.

If you head about thirty minutes south of Andover, you might just find yourself at Arlington’s Thorndike Field, which locals call the best dog park in Massachusetts.
