Hi, My name is Paul and I have had rescued three dogs since 1997. I had a large Bull Mastiff / St. Bernard mix named Veego that passed away at around 15 in 2012. I have had a German Shepherd since 2005, Honey is currently 14 years old. I have also had a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Ben since 2007 that is about to be ten. I have pet sat for lots of friends in the past. Pitbulls, Rotweiller, Labradors, Boxer, Pug, Chihuahuas, French Bulldog, and a few Terriers. Seeing any dog always puts a smile on my face, from abandoned rescues to show dogs. I enjoy learning their unique personalities and quirks. I will treat your dog (and home) like I do my own, with love and care. I've also been vegetarian / vegan for over 25 years and like to stay active. Reliable transportation for North Shore and Boston.

Hi, my name is Rebekah. I grew up an animal lover in Maine, where I enjoyed living with a Blue Heeler/Sheppard mix named Sitka. I started walking and sitting for my friends’ and neighbors’ pets more than 5 years ago and have loved it ever since! Recently I’ve moved to Boston and am excited to be back in the area. I have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages. As an outdoorsy, active person, I’d love to meet your best friend and take them out for some fun and exciting exercise! I know each pup is as unique as they are loved, and I can’t wait to provide you both with the caring Wag! experience.

Dog Walking in Dedham

Dedham, Massachusetts is a rural town noted for its’ rich, four hundred year history, and the ever-improving quality of life. The pets that live in this town have a lot to do – from well-kept parks to beautiful strolls and hiking paths, there’s always something for a four-legged companion to enjoy.

Dedham is currently in the process of building a dog park for town residents to enjoy. As for right now, there is a temporary dog park located at the Dolan Canter on Common Street. It’s open until 3 pm on Monday through Thursday, and on the weekends from 7 am to dusk. This park will be open for several years until a permanent location is found.

The town has several beautiful trails to explore. On-leash dogs are allowed. For adventurous hikers who don’t mind the rough terrain, there’s the Town Forest. Covering over 77 acres, this space was maintained in the 1970’s with several hiking trails, but is now overgrown. Cutler Park features a 9.5-mile walking loop that wanders through natural and residential areas. Wilson Mountain is a stunning 120-acre space and is the highest point in the town. At the top, hikers (and their furry companions!) can see scenic views of Boston and the local communities.
