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!

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!
