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 Canton

Canton is a small town nestled in Norfolk County, just 15 miles south of Boston. With the Blue Hills to the north and the Canton River running through town, dogs living here are treated to beautiful landscapes and hours of outdoor fun.

Canton has a couple pupperific dog friendly restaurants. This means if you feel liking dining out, your pooch can join you! For some hearty comfort food, head over to Blue Hills Grille. With New England clam chowder, beef Wellington, and a fried chicken sandwich on the menu, you know you can’t go wrong. This place has six outdoor tables that welcome leashed dogs. Canton Junction Sports Bar also has outdoor pet friendly seating. Order up some pub grub like bacon and cheddar potato skins, loaded nachos or chicken wings. Don’t forget to try the Boston crème or chocolate pecan bundt cake. 

If you and your furry traveling partner are just visiting Canton, make a reservation at the Homewood Suites Canton. For a small fee, this home away from home welcomes four legged guests, so your pup will have a place to lay her head for the evening. The rooms have a fully equipped kitchen but a complimentary breakfast is also served each morning.

Next time your furry friend needs a walk, head over to Signal Hill. This beautiful area is made up of grassy open space and a large rocky knoll. Follow your pooch up an old cart path to the top of the rock. Although it’s only about 200 feet high, you’ll have a panoramic view of the area including Great Blue Hill and the Boston skyline. After your make it down, take a flat trail over to the banks of the Neponset River. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, as this area is home to hawks, songbirds, turtles and frogs. Sounds pretty pawsome!

Is your pup begging for a walk? Grab his leash and head over to Ponkapoag Pond. Part of the Blue Hills Reservation, this area is chock full of oak and hickory trees. Your pooch can commune with nature as you follow the loop trail through the woodland terrain and around the pond. Be sure to make your way down the boardwalk into the bog, and you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view of the pond. Depending on the time of year you go, there may even be lily pads. Rumor has it that there are lots of bugs, so bringing some bug repellent is probably a good idea.

For more Blue Hills Reservation hiking, hop over to Canton’s northern neighbor Milton. With over 125 miles of trails to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect hike for your four legged pal. The Wolcott and Border Path runs 2.5 miles and takes you through clusters of pines and hemlocks. For a shorter hike, try Houghton’s Pond Loop. It only lasts .75 miles, so if your pup is pretty energetic, you may need to add on another hike. If your pooch is up for a challenge, try the Skyline Loop. This three mile trail leads you up several summits, including the Great Blue Hill. Once you reach the top, you can see all the way to Boston!

Walpole is home to Francis William Bird Park. At just a quick six mile drive west of Canton, this 89 acre park is well worth a visit. Your furry BFF will love sniffing around the green rolling hills and wandering through the tree lined paths. More than three miles of trails weave through maple, oak, pine, birch and hemlock. A section of the trail is paved, but you’ll mostly be wandering around on natural surfaces. A small stream and a couple of ponds add to the park’s beauty. After walking around, settle in under one of the shade trees and have a picnic. Don’t forget to bring some water (and a treat) for your hiking buddy!

For an off the beaten path experience, pack up your pooch and head over to the Quincy Quarries Reservation. This unique park is located about 10 miles northeast of Canton in Quincy. Here you’ll find an unusual mix of natural beauty and street art. Wander around the quarry so your pup can check out the colorful graffiti on the rock croppings. There are also wide open grassy meadows and a couple of short trails. This is also a pupular spot for rock climbing, so chances are you’ll run into some climbers making their way up the face of the rocks.
