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!

“The road to my heart is paved with paw prints...”

I am a freelance filmmaker by day and an animal lover 24 hours a day! I have considered veterinary studies in the past but being overseas at the time made it impractical, as such studies weren't available in the region. I love the outdoors and exercising too. So it would be great to do so with the best of companions!

Dog Walking in Hyde Park

Hyde Park is neighborhood within the city of Boston. Located at the southern tip of Boston, it was settled in the mid-17thcentury and rose to prominence through paper and cotton manufacturing.  In 1912, what once was an incorporated town officially became part of Boston. Now it is fondly referred to as “A Small Town in the City.”  It truly has a suburban feel, yet it’s close to all the metropolitan amenities.  No wonder resident canines give this place two paws up!

Hyde Park has a rich history. Fur-tunately, a walk around the area’s main streets will provide both and educational and enjoyable afternoon out with your pooch. Leash up your pup and make your way over to the intersection of Hyde Park Avenue and River Street to start the walking tour. You’ll pass Christ Church, a late Gothic style church now on the National Register of Historic Buildings. A little further on you’ll find the Historic French’s Opera House, Logan Square Clock, and the Hyde Park Library.  

For a poignant history lesson, head over to Camp Meigs. This park was once a training ground for Civil War militias. It was here that the famed 54th Regiment prepared for battle. No bones about it, this place is woofin’ amazing!

For a furrific afternoon walk, head over to Sherrin Woods. A small slice of nature in an urban setting, this space is a nice respite from the city’s fast paced living. Your furry friend will love wandering through groves of oaks, hickory, hemlock and birch. Most of the trails are in the northern part of the park since the southern portion is full of thickets and wetlands. Weider Parks sits at the top end of Sherrin Woods. Follow the paved path around the tennis courts before calling it a day. Hopefully by the time you head home, your fur baby will be doggone tuckered out.

Ross Park was built for the athletic types. Two legged sports fans are known to frequent this park’s ball fields, sport courts, and street hockey rink. The park is also a great place for those with four legs. Leash up your pup and walk or jog around the paved path for some invigorating exercise. The Smith Pond Playground is also in the area. This park may not have a paved path, but your dog will love sniffing around the grassy fields. Bring a blanket and spend the afternoon hanging with your pup.

If your furry BFF wants to connect with the great outdoors, take a trip to the Stony Brook Reservation. She’ll love feeling the dirt beneath her paws as she wanders through this urban forest. Over 10 miles of trails weave through this natural space, so your pooch has plenty of room to burn some energy. Chances are you’ll run into some bikers or horseback riders, so be sure to keep your dog on a leash. After a long walk, chill out by the shore of Turtle Pond. If you’re feeling lucky, cast a line.

Clip on your pup’s leash and take a nice afternoon stroll through Martini Park. Although it’s on the small side, this park still has grassy fields for sniffing, a paved trail for walking, and shade trees for relaxing. Your pal will wag his tail with delight as he struts his stuff around this neighborhood park. If your pooch is craving a change of scenery, pop over to the Iacono/ Readville Playground. You’ll find even more open space for roaming. When he’s done nosing around, cruise around the perimeter for a little doggy cardio.

Millennium Park used to be a landfill, now it is a beautiful park and a pupperific place to spend time with your canine companion. This local gem is conveniently located in the neighboring community of West Roxbury. The park sprawls across 100 acres and has about three miles of trails to explore. Wander around the rolling hills and wetlands before taking a break on one of the benches. This is a pup-ular dog walking spot, so your pal will also have a chance to meet new friends.
