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!

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!

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.
