Hi! Kristine here! I am a self professed dog person. I currently get to love on my two amazing children in their 20's and 3 amazing dogs! I have had a life full of puppy love and doggy kisses! I've been lucky enough to be the human companion to Bear, Barney,Ginger, Tanner, Lexi, Cobaka and Soukie and Titan! I've learned so much from each of them about love, friendship, patience and devotion. I am looking forward to the many wonders your pup will teach me!

As a dedicated cat/dog dad, I have had the experience and pleasure of working with, owning, and loving many animals throughout my life. From growing up with a beautiful Black Lab named Hamilton to currently owning an adorable Terrier Mix named Skip, I've always been in the company of dogs. I've pet sat for friends and family and have taken care of many different breeds, so I've interacted with a wide variety of dogs to know how to read them to try and make them the happiest pup they can be!

Hey my name is Skylar! I’ve been dog walking and sitting for about 5 years and can’t imagine doing anything else! I have always loved all animals. I love being out in nature and backpacking. Let me tell you about my experience with pet care. I have experience with various dog temperaments and personalities. I have an aggressive dog of my own, I know the right things to do to keep him safe and other dogs and people safe. I have taken care of lots of puppies. Have taken care of the same puppies through adulthood. I like to provide frequent updates so you know how your pup is doing. I’m very observant of the pup I’m working with and can intuitively sense when something is not right. I understand the safety and well being of your pup is in my hands. You can trust that I will always take care you your pup as if they are my own.

I am a total animal lover! When I was in high school I spent my summers at a local animal clinic assisting with everything from spay and neuter to routine vaccines. For the past several years, in addition to dog walking and pet boarding, I have volunteered extensively at local animal rescues. For the past few months I have even begun to foster for a local rescue. I will treat your 4 legged friend just as I would my own fur babies.

I am a recent college graduate in Industrial Design, and I do sewing work from home. Working from home was a bit lonely, so I adopted my pup named Beau and he keeps me company. I have spent my free time training Beau at home and with an obedience trainer. Whether it’s going for a walk around downtown Newport, playing on the beach or snuggling on the couch, there’s always something for us to do!

Dog Walking in Dartmouth

The beautiful city of Dartmouth, Massachusetts is full of a perfect mix of history and modern buildings and activities.  Human and pup visitors to Dartmouth will enjoy the gorgeous Dartmouth Regional Park and Trail (DRPT), which also doubles as a dog park!

Celebrated as a highly popular park for all kinds of recreation, DRPT has a picnic grove, a pavilion for dining, and a walking trail that leads the intrepid explorers and their people to the adventures awaiting them!   DRPT does have dog regulations, so check out their site ahead of time to be sure you meet all of the criteria, and note that there is a 12 dog max rule.  With a population density of 467 people per square mile, it can fill up fast, so get there early!

When you are ready to retire for the evening, or just take a rest and freshen up throughout the day, you can choose from an abundance of pet-friendly hotels that are conveniently located less than two miles from the city center. Nearby, you'll find excellent opportunities for some scenic dog walks that will give you something to bark home about. You can also relax in the knowledge that there are three vet clinics in your nearby vicinity should an emergency occur.

Hungry for more than doggie treats?  Dicky's Clam Shack in North Dartmouth is a mouthwateringly good seafood truck that serves up delicious food and ice cream for dessert.  Grab some dinner and a pup cone and enjoy your stay in Dartmouth!

Best Dog Neighborhoods in Dartmouth

Nonquitt

Nonquitt

Nonquitt is a small neighborhood in Dartmouth that has plenty of beach access, but unless you know one of the 527 permanent residents and they have access to a private beach, their beaches are not pet-friendly.  However, you can choose from a multitude of AirBnBs that allow pets, and some of these do have beach access so you and Fido can frolic in the waves, but remember to follow beach dog etiquette.  This means try to keep him from chasing birds, clean up after his potties, and avoid letting him play with wildlife.  Above all else, follow safety rules for dogs and beaches -- always practice safety first!

Apponagansett

Apponagansett

Another small, family-friendly neighborhood in Dartmouth is Apponagansett.  Here, you will find the Apponagansett Park, which is not pet-friendly, but the nature trails that surround it are, and they are full of wildlife and beauty.  You can also find the nearby Lloyd Center for the Environment, a nonprofit organization that seeks to educate and instill a love of nature in people.  If you go after 3:00 pm, you can bring your fur friends and enjoy the 82-acre nature preserve in all of its natural glory.  The trails are clearly marked, but make sure Fido is treated for ticks and watch out for those nasty buggers!

Bliss Corner

Population Density
1,050 per sq. mi.

Bliss Corner

A small little two square mile town with about 5,000 people in it, Bliss Corner is a quaint, often overlooked neighborhood in Dartmouth. Although it is little, it is home to Red Trail Hiking Trail, a two-mile trail that boasts two boardwalks overlooking salt marshes. There is also a suspension bridge, so leashes are advised if you bring your favorite furry friends so they stay safe!   If that makes you think twice, there is also the Blue Trail Hiking Trail, which is a two-mile loop that passes the scenic old farmhouse foundation. Pack lots of water and keep those tick treatments up-to-date as well.

Smith Mills

Smith Mills

The little town of Smith Mills is a neighborhood in Dartmouth located right on the coast.  In fact, part of the town is made up of water!  While there are twelve acres of trails here, that land is owned by the Smith Mills Friends, and there is no public access.  However, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll with Fido and check out the beautiful landscape surrounding you as well as the well-maintained historic and modern homes.  Smith Mills has a large number of residences that were built somewhere in the years of 1940 to 1969, and a walk through this neighborhood is always refreshing.

Padanaram is a little 150-acre coastal village in Dartmouth that is proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Villages and has made the papers, dubbed by the Boston Globe as the place "where life slows down."  Visiting this village is an opportunity to explore and enjoy the scenic streets and old historic district, where you can feel like you have stepped back in the past while you buy Fido treats and souvenirs. After you've had your fill of re-tail therapy, take a stroll along the scenic Apponagansett Bay. Be sure you and Fido are attached at the leash while you peruse this charming little town that lies along Buzzard's Bay near Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.
