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!

“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 Cambridge

Cambridge is a lively corner of the Boston Metro Area, the domain of both higher education and pet lovers. Cambridge has two veterinary clinics within its narrow borders, and a dozen others within easy driving distance, testifying to the demand for high quality care for man’s best friends. With great dog-friendly locations, like the iconic Roxy’s Grilled Cheese (now also available as a food truck), it’s easy to see why dog-lovers love Cambridge.


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.


For a treat for canine and human alike, Cambridge Cookery School and Cafe serve up delights every day. You can enjoy seasonal favorites while your dog dines on in-house, fresh-made dog treats. Yum! Whether you like hiking, strolling, or dining, Cambridge knows what dogs want and people like.

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.
