    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.

    I grew up with a Shetland Sheepdog/Border Collie mix and a Samoyed. In addition I love all animals. When I travel, I make a point to go the the local zoo, if one exists, and pet shops. Also, I lived overseas for twenty years, so I have learned to adapt to all kinds of new circumstances, conditions, surprises etc. Finally, I am conscientious, responsible, honest and reliable.

    “A walk a day keeps the vet away!”

    Hi! I'm Ellie and the most important fact to know about me is; I love animals! I moved to Natick from California where I was a dog walker for five years. I grew up in rural NY, we always had at least two dogs plus a bunch more critters. I recently graduated from Humboldt State University were I studied wildlife biology so I can help save all the animals. I am a natural with dogs of all sizes, some training experience, lots of energy for walks, and I can't wait to meet your best friend!

    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!

    I am taking classes online right now and my time is flexible. I have an English Bulldog named Henry who only ever wants to go for car rides. I am always trying to find ways to exercise and keep moving so I would truly love to play or walk with your dog.

    Fields Corner

    This section of the Dorchester neighborhood beside Dorchester Center is home to Victory Road Park, a very dog-friendly and popular area for dog walkers. Although it is not technically a dog park, many dog owners and handlers let their fur-buddies off-leash when it’s safe to do so. Dogs love running free in this small island park, and can even swim in Boston Harbor on warm summer days. The park is nicely landscaped with lots of open green space and benches for the humans. Please be aware there are no amenities here such as drinking water or waste bags, so be sure to bring some with you for your outing in this sweet little park. If all the exercise is making you and your fur pup hungry, head over to The Blarney Stone, a dog-friendly restaurant with outdoor seating where you’ll find a variety of American cuisine to make your mouth water and your pup’s tail wag. Bone appetit!

Dog-friendly Dorchester Park is comprised of 30 acres of parkland and woodlands perfect for long meandering walks with Fido. Equipped with tennis courts and a playground as well, this is a perfect spot to bring your family, including your fur-baby.  It features paved paths through the woods and along the edges of the fields, which are lined with trees and benches, and the open expanses of green lawn lend themselves to doggo play or training, or just lolling about on a blanket with a picnic lunch.

    The Cedar Grove neighborhood in nearby Dorchester is home to the Neponset River Reservation, a waterfront park with winding packed dirt walking paths along the river, through marshland and wetlands along the Neponset Inlet. This is a dog-friendly park, and Fido is welcome on leash to join you for boating, paddling, biking, fishing and hiking. There are also playgrounds and wading pools for the human youngsters, so bring the whole family along! Many of the walkways are raised above the wetlands to keep your feet dry. This neighborhood is also home to the dog-friendly Lower Neponset River Rail-Trail, which is accessible from Hallett Street and travels 5 miles from Dorchester into neighboring Milton. Finally, also accessible from Hallett Street is the Pope John Paul II Park Reservation, a 66-acre park which was converted from a landfill that now features walking trails, opportunities for viewing wildlife, and fishing. A leashed Fido is welcome to join you as you stroll along the paved trails or enjoy a picnic at one of the areas provided.

    The Boston Harborwalk begins in this Dorchester neighborhood section. It is a dog-friendly, public walkway along Dorchester Bay and the Harbor and is contiguous with the Dorchester Shore Reservation. It features many amenities including cafes, shops and public art installations. Benches are placed along the Harborwalk where you and Fido can stop to rest and view the spectacular Boston skyline across the harbor. Nearby you’ll find Fiskie’s Café, a popular eatery that offers an eclectic cuisine prepared with only the freshest ingredients and served at one of the outdoor tables if you and Fido wish. They also package for takeaway, in case you and your fur-pup would rather eat water-side gazing at the lights of the city. With everything on the menu from Italian to American to Asian, there is sure to be something you and Fido can agree is irresistible! Bone appetit!

    This Dorchester neighborhood is home to the Ronan Park Dog Recreation Space, which is part of Ronan Park. This spacious, clean fenced area is perfect for the socializing and un-leashed exercise that are so important to a healthy dog. The play surface is pebbles, and the park provides a paved walking path around the perimeter for more controlled exercise. Benches are provided for humans, and the doggos have play boulders to climb for a “Dog King of the Mountain” games. There’s a doggie fountain and waste bags and waste receptacles. You can get to this gem through Ronan Park, or find a space to park on one of the small side streets on that end of Ronan. Ronan Park is a lovely area with athletic fields and wide expanse of lawn, trees and walking paths, but if you’re looking for a place for your furry bestie to have the time of his life, the Dog Recreation Space is the right destination!
