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.

Hi my name is Jill and I am the proud owner of an English Bulldog, Queen Cookie. I recently moved to Boston and Queen Cookie is living back home in CT with her Grama. I miss walking my furry companion and figured WAG was a great way to fill that void. I am comfortable walying dogs from 10 pounds to 120 pounds and can not wait to meet your fur baby!

Hi, my name is Rebekah. I grew up an animal lover in Maine, where I enjoyed living with a Blue Heeler/Sheppard mix named Sitka. I started walking and sitting for my friends’ and neighbors’ pets more than 5 years ago and have loved it ever since! Recently I’ve moved to Boston and am excited to be back in the area. I have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages. As an outdoorsy, active person, I’d love to meet your best friend and take them out for some fun and exciting exercise! I know each pup is as unique as they are loved, and I can’t wait to provide you both with the caring Wag! experience.

Cambridge is a lively corner of the Boston Metro Area, the domain of both higher education and pet lovers.

Cambridge is perfectly located for easy hops to amazing dog spots. Middlesex Fells Reservation offers great walking trails and a pond to cool off in the summer. Climb hilly terrain or take it easy with your dog; either way is a great way to enjoy this Cambridge area state park.


If you’re looking for something more relaxed, Fresh Pond Reservation is a leisurely stroll in Cambridge. You and your dog can enjoy the view, summer or winter, across Fresh Pond. Picnic in Kingsley Park for the best break from the city’s bustle.

Cambridge residents love Gold Star Mothers Park in East Cambridge. This dog-friendly park doubles as a family-oriented leashed park during the day, and an off-leash zone in the early morning. If you can get your pup out the door between 6am and 9am, this park is an off-leash paradise. After that it becomes leashed only, and great for walks or family fun. Just a note: if your dog isn’t licensed in Cambridge, hit the snooze button, as non-Cambridge dogs can’t take advantage of the off leash portion of the day.

MIT contains a cluster of the brightest minds in Cambridge. It’s full of top talent, and the school that the area’s named after. Bright students and bright dogs favor Fort Washington Park. It’s not much of a trick to see why. Fort Washington’s fenced, off-leash play area is enough to make every dog sit, stay, and beg for more! The park is a great place to cool down or warm up after a riverside walk, as the area has spectacular views of the Charles and plenty of walking paths.

Cambridgeport is a densely populated neighborhood whose dog park needs are met with two great spaces. The first is Pacific Street Dog Park, a sand lot equipped for off leash play. This park has gone from passable to pawsome thanks to community investment which added benches, more sand, and lots of love to the park. Hoyt Field an another option for on leash walking. There’s a variety of activities for the whole family, from adults to kids to fur kids. Check out Cambridgeport’s Paul’s Portrait Arts for full family photos that focus on dogs.

Fresh Pond Reservation Dog Park is a multi-use park with unfenced off-leash areas. While some pups would be overwhelmed with an unfenced environment, level-headed rovers are welcome to romp without a leash. Dogs are encouraged to follow the general trails throughout the park, and swimming is allowed in the Fresh Pond. If you’re looking for a fenced experience, head to Danehy Dog Park instead. This park has separate areas for large and small dogs, and is placed within a thriving park for general use.

Corcoran Field is a great place to test your pup’s self control. This large public park is nestled into a busy neighborhood. It contains an area designated for off-leash play, but there’s always a catch: this area isn’t fenced. Load up on treats the first time you bring your pup to play so he always has an incentive to come back to you. Aside from the lack of fence, Corcoran Field is centrally located, and a short hop to Neighborhood Nine restaurants with dog-friendly outdoor seating, such as The Table at Season to Taste--as long as those treats don’t spoil your dog’s appetite.
