Hi there, I'm Shanna! I have loved having dogs around me all my life, from one grandmother's obedience show dogs to the other grandmother's many adopted strays to the rescued Boxer who was my best friend as a kid, to the goofy fluffball spaniel back home in NH who shuns me whenever I pack to come back to Boston. I personally took both of my dogs through obedience training classes, and worked as a walker and sitter for neighbors for several years. I have been a pet sitter for oodles of other animals, from cats to chickens, and have several years of equestrian work and training experience as well. I can't have a dog with my current work schedule and apartment, so helping your furry friend get some exercise will be a wonderful way for me to get some canine companionship! I can't wait to meet your dog!

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!

“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 Chelmsford

Chelmsford, named after the town Chelmsford in England, lies 24 miles northwest of Boston in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. It is a lovely spot to bring your pet for a visit if you are in this part of the world, with many forest areas and waterways to take a leisurely stroll or more energetic jog around.

Warren Manning State Park is one of these fantastic green spaces, where your dog is welcome to accompany you on the lead. There is a small daily parking fee here in summer which can be purchased at the park from the attendant. Walking trails are plentiful in this area if you are up for a little exercise, and the family will love the water park, picnic areas and space to play a friendly game of catch or cricket. There are also grills here for cooking up a tasty lunch, and the restrooms are open when the attendant is on site.

For a pup-friendly place to eat, head to Moonstones. This upmarket bistro serves up an eclectic menu of globally-inspired dishes that you need to taste to believe. For something a little more casual, try Jimmy’s Pizza for the restaurant’s namesake, as well as subs, salad, wings or seafood. Gary’s Icecream has homemade frozen treats that will top off your day perfectly. Dogs are welcome to sit by their owners at all of these places at an outdoor table.

There are two veterinary hospitals and one clinic in town, so you can be assured that your pup will stay happy and healthy on his visit. 

Whatever you choose to do, you will both love your stay in Chelmsford!

The Russell Mill Pond and Town Forest is 132 acres of lush wooded forest that's perfect for an escape into nature and a lovely hike with your pet. The 3,000 feet of frontage along the pond offers scenic views and an abundance of wildlife to spot on your travels. There are numerous trails through here, all signposted and on fairly easy terrain. Come prepared here as there aren't any amenities close by, so bring your water, food and clean up bags. Your dog will need to stay on a lead throughout the area, but there is so much to see and so many wonderful trails that you are both sure to have a pup-tastic outing.

Fancy doing something a little different with your pup? Why not take him apple-picking? Hill Orchard in West Chelmsford is a pup-friendly place where you can gather your very own fresh apples in the fall season. You dog will love wandering along the rows of trees, helping you seek out the ripest, juiciest, most delicious apples around. There is nothing better than fruit straight off the tree! If you are there at the right time, you may even get a hayride with Farmer Dave. Your furry helper will need to stay on the lead, and make sure you take some clean up bags with you. What a pup-tastic way to spend a few hours together!
