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've owned, cared for, walked, and boarded dogs for many years. I love being around dogs, getting to know them, playing with them, walking them, and giving them the opportunity to be themselves. I currently have two dogs of my own. They are one of the joys of my life, and I will treat your dog with the same love and affection that my dogs get every day.

I have been working in the pet care industry for approximately seven years now. I managed a daycare and pet boarding facility for four years and prior to that, I was a Kennel Supervisor for two years with a facility located in New Hampshire. More recently, I have worked as a Vet Tech in a general practice and emergency setting, as well as with a local animal shelter. Working as a Vet Tech has provided me with the opportunity to gain the knowledge and hands on experience of the medical aspect involved in providing care to both canines and felines. I have aspired to work with animals since I was a child and have always had a true passion toward them. I have years of experience in a canine pack environment, as well as one on one with most dog breeds. I also have personal experience, as I have two rescue dogs of my own. I feel this is very important when dealing with a client's pet, as it provides the assurance that their pet is in good hands. In addition to dogs, I have grown up living with cats my whole life. I also have worked with cats in both shelter and veterinary settings. From a ferrel cat to a lap cat, I have experienced both, yet love them all the same! I can confidently medicate any animal if necessary, including pilling to providing insulin injections. My main focus is currently working in the animal care field and furthering my education with my CVT. I absolutely love working in an environment where the focus is caring for animals. My ultimate goal is to own a rescue some day. I feel as though my passion for animals and my prior experience would be a great match for you and your pet! I look forward to hearing from you regarding your furry family members' needs!

Dog Walking in Ipswich

Ipswich is located in Essex County, Massachusetts. After being settled in 1630, this seaside town was inhabited by farmers, fisherman, and shipbuilders. It also became famous for its lace making industry. Now, it is a charming tourist destination with historic buildings and beautiful open spaces. The town’s clam harvest is celebrated annually with the Ipswich Chowderfest.

The Historic Ipswich Walking Tour is the perfect way for you and your pup to get acquainted with this pawsome city. The tour takes you past houses that belonged to notable residents and display 17th and 18th century architecture. You’ll also see memorials, a cemetery, stone bridges, and significant sites. Your pup will be a regular history buff when he’s done with this tour. The shorter version is 2 miles, while the longer version of the walk clocks in at 4 miles.

After your walk, head over to the Clam Box and get some of area’s famous clams. Shrimp, scallops, and haddock are also available. For those with seafood aversions, the menu includes burgers and hot dogs. Pet friendly tables are available outside.

Not only does Ipswich have a rich history, it also has three local veterinary clinics and hours of outdoor recreation. No wonder dogs love living in this puptastic place!

Next time your pup needs a walk, head over to the Willowdale State Forest. Sprawling over 3,000 acres, this massive park spills over into a couple neighboring cities. There are 40 miles of trails that wind through the forest, so it’s a good idea to bring a map. Needless to say, your pooch will have plenty of room to get some much needed exercise. Since the trails are multiuse, chances are you will see mountain bikers, joggers, horseback riders, and other dog walkers. Keep your pooch on leash and remember to bring plenty of water to keep her hydrated.

This area showcases the beautiful natural spaces of Ipswich. Leash up your pup and make your way to the Julia Bird Reservation. Take your pal for a brisk walk through the woodlands and open fields. Trails pass through hardwood trees and along the Ipswich River. The land surrounding New England Biolabs is also open to the public, and is prime walking space.  Your pup will wag his tail as you wander through wetlands, forests, and meadows. Don’t forget Crane Beach! From October 1 to March 30, dogs are welcome to splash in the surf. Be sure to explore the surrounding trails that meander through the sand dunes. Sounds furrific!

The Sidney Shurcliff River Walk runs along the Ipswich River. It may be short and sweet, but it’s a delightful path that lets your pup enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. It begins at the County Street Bridge and ends up at Town Hall. After your walk, pop into the nearby Zumi’s Espresso and Ice Cream Bar for a pick me up. The menu is chock full of special blends, espressos, teas, and other drinks. Don’t leave without ordering a scoop (or two) of their freshly made ice cream. Order your treats to go or hang out with your pooch at a table on the back porch.

Just 20 minutes west of Ipswich, you’ll find Georgetown-Rowley State Forest. Located in Georgetown, this natural area provides hours of outdoor fun. Pack some snacks, water, and a leash, then head over for some fantastic hiking. The Georgetown-Rowley State Forest Loop Trail runs about 8 miles and gives you a great tour of the area. Your pooch will love exploring the wetlands, ponds, and babbling brooks. She can sniff her way around while getting in some doggy cardio. Some of the trails are multiuse, so expect to see some mountain bikes. No bones about it, this place will make you pup’s tail wag!
