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!
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.
Heart Pond Beach in the southwest of Chelmsford
is a great spot for a fun family day out. There is a swing set and space to play
for your small two-legged family members, and an ice cream truck frequents the
beach in warmer months for a special treat. Picnic tables and benches are
available to relax at with a packed lunch when it is time for a rest. If you
are up for a walk, the paved Bruce Freeman Rail Trail runs past here. This
section of the trail covers 6.8 miles in total and can take you all the way
back up to the town of Chelmsford.
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!
The Great Brook Farm State Park in Carlisle covers
over 1,000 acres and has an extensive network of trails where you can take your
pup for an on-lead walk and explore some of the area’s most beautiful
woodlands. The trail system through here adds up to nearly 20 miles of walking
and biking paths, centred around a working dairy farm. After your walk, you can
purchase a delicious ice cream from the farm shop and relax on the grassed
picnic areas together. There is a small daily parking fee, but it is otherwise
free to enter the park. Restrooms are available for you, but bring your clean
up bags for Fido.
The Vietnam Veterans Park in nearby Billerica has some wonderful wooded trails to explore with your dog. The
easy walking trails are well marked with their designated colours - blue,
green, orange and yellow - and take you through some of the best scenery in the
area. The total area is 240 acres between the Concord River and two ponds. Also
at the park are playgrounds for the kids, a fishing pier and canoe ramp, a
community garden and soccer fields. There is plenty of parking close by and
entry to the area is free. Dogs are very welcome here, but need to stay
leashed. Please remember to clean up after your pet too.
