I have not only grown up with dogs, but own many of my own including rescues, mixed breeds, and purebreds.

Looking forward to meeting your pet, playing with them, going for long walks together, and some TLC in your absence.

Having a family dog growing up helped me learn the responsibilities and commitment of raising a dog, and made me forever a dog person. Previously, I fostered dogs. The best experience was fostering a female mutt who surprised us all by being pregnant. I helped mama give birth to 5 pups. The puppies are healthy, happy, and very well socialized. I know the anxiety that can surface when being away from your pet, so rest assured I will be careful, and keen on detail and routine while you're away.

I have always loved animals and always had several of my own. I volunteered to walk dogs at Buddy Dog in Sudbury MA and loved it. I also helped start a cat rescue group in my hometown and have volunteered for them for 15 years. I recently retired from nursing after 30 years and have been doing dog walking and cat sitting by word of mouth. I love doing it and want to get more customers! I haven’t met a dog or cat I didn’t like, and vice versa. My schedule is flexible. Hope to hear from you soon!

Dog Walking in Fitchburg

The city of Fitchburg is a countryside city on the north side of Massachusetts, 45 miles west of Boston. Rolling hills, thick forests, and a river pass through the metropolitan city. Thanks to its large amount of nature preserves and natural areas outside of the city, the town makes for a great place to get out and enjoy a nice walk. Most of the places to get out for a walk are dog-friendly, and there are even four veterinarians right in town.

The most popular park in the city is Coggshall Park, a 212-acre area that surrounds Mirror Lake, and offers miles of wooded trails, walking paths, open spaces, and recreational fields. There's two ballfields, tennis courts, a picnic area, a gazebo on the water, a dog-friendly beach to the lake, places for fishing, a playground, and a bird sanctuary. The park requires for pups to be on a leash inside the park, but have clean-up stations, water fountains, and benches available.

Another great park to head to with your pup is Parkhill Park, a wooded area with open space and trails to enjoy with Fido. The park has forested trails, fenced-in baseball fields, enclosed tennis courts, a playground, open space to run around in, and paved walking trails connecting the area. You and Fido can even find some other great features like water fountains, clean-up stations, nighttime lights, trash bins, and benches.

Whether you're visiting the town for its great outdoor activities, or a resident just going for a short walk with Fido, Fitchburg provides plenty of places just for your pup.
