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!

Dog Walking in Brighton

Brighton is one of Boston's 23 neighborhoods and is nestled on the shore of the Charles River. Although small, this community surely isn’t lacking in activities and amenities for the local pup-ulation. Three veterinary clinics within 10 miles of Brighton keep local pups healthy, happy and feeling their best. 

There are 30 dog-friendly parks within 5 miles of Brighton, including two within the neighborhood! Massachusetts state law declares pet owners must obtain a license for their dog yearly or face strict fines. Off-leash parks in the state maintain that pets must be licensed to run free. Many parks still allow non-licensed pooches, although they must remain leashed.

Hunnewell Park is a 4.6-acre recreation area that provides fun for the whole family! The park is open from sunrise to sunset and even boasts a off-leash area for Fido and his friends! The off-leash area provides a safe place for local dogs to run free and socialize. There's also a regulation softball field and two elementary fields for soccer and lacrosse here for the humans.

Roger’s Park is located at the center of Brighton and hosts activities for two and four-legged visitors.Though technically not a bark park, licensed dogs are allowed off-leash time on the parks' expansive lawn. Owners are advised to keep a close eye on their free-roaming companion as the park is not fully fenced. Other features include athletic fields and a playground for the non-furry kiddos. 

After a long frolic in the park, satisfy you and your pup's rumbling stomachs at Dash Café. This quaint dog-friendly spot is a great place for brunch, sandwiches, and specialty drinks. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are also available. Place a double order, because your pooch won’t want to share!

Castle Island Beach is a great place for leashed pups to practice their doggy-paddle during the off-season. The beach is home to Fort Independence, a star-shaped fort that provided key coastal protection for decades. The 22-acre park has several amenities, including a boardwalk, playground, picnic areas, restrooms, and showers to rinse dirty paws. Carson Beach is located just a few miles away and is another great hang-out for local doggos. The beaches are open to dogs from Labor Day to Memorial Day, and are very popular with the fluffy residents. Your pal will love all the new friends and breathtaking views of the harbor!

Originally home to a Naval Air Station, Squantum Point is now a waterfront recreation area maintained by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. Several paved runways remain and make wonderful surfaces for skating and running with your pet. The small beach boasts big views of the harbor and is a popular spot for bird-watching. Pups are welcome to play on the beach and in the water, but make sure you bring doggy bags to keep the shoreline clean. The beach is open to leashed pets from dawn to dusk and is a great spot for pets to make a splash year-round!

East Cambridge is every city dog's dream, boasting several off-leash parks and pet-friendly recreation facilities. Blaze the trails where the Revolutionary War began at the Minute Man Bikeway. This 9.7-mile paved trail is a great place to exercise leashed pups and learn some history, too!  The Fresh Pond reservation welcomes licensed pups to play off-leash in the lovely preservation area. Here, pups can take a relaxing dip in two ponds on the reservation, or just enjoy a leisurely stroll. Pets are not allowed on the manicured lawns and some paved trails. Rangers are known to ticket people without proper licensure for their pets, so make sure your pup’s paperwork is up-to-date.

This reservation is home to several ponds, as well as a scenic waterfall. Leashed pets are welcome from sunrise to sunset. The nearby Waltham Dog Ranch provides a great off-leash recreation area for licensed pups to let loose. The park features agility obstacles where furry guests can hone their skills. There is also a convenient waste bag station for when nature calls. Bowls are provided but owners will need to bring water — your pup will surely work up a thirst zooming around the obstacle course!

The neighborhood of Allston is home to several pup-friendly eateries and furrific recreation facilities. Here, your fuzzy pal can explore much of Boston by paddle tour down the Charles River. If your dog doesn’t fancy the water, stroll on over to Mansfield Dog Park. This community-based park is maintained by volunteers and offers a great place for Fido to stretch his legs. Mansfield Park is one of very few fenced off-leash parks in the area and even has a double gated entry to keep pups safe. Visitors are advised to bring their own water, as there is none on-site. This park is much less busy than surrounding facilities, making it perfect for more timid pups!
