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!

Hi, My name is Paul and I have had rescued three dogs since 1997. I had a large Bull Mastiff / St. Bernard mix named Veego that passed away at around 15 in 2012. I have had a German Shepherd since 2005, Honey is currently 14 years old. I have also had a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Ben since 2007 that is about to be ten. I have pet sat for lots of friends in the past. Pitbulls, Rotweiller, Labradors, Boxer, Pug, Chihuahuas, French Bulldog, and a few Terriers. Seeing any dog always puts a smile on my face, from abandoned rescues to show dogs. I enjoy learning their unique personalities and quirks. I will treat your dog (and home) like I do my own, with love and care. I've also been vegetarian / vegan for over 25 years and like to stay active. Reliable transportation for North Shore and Boston.

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!

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.
