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.

Dog Walking in Lawrence
Lawrence is a working-class city in Massachusetts with a rich history. It was incorporated by a group of industrialists in 1847 as a mill town, and went on to play a central role in the textile industry and the early-twentieth-century labor movement. Factories and urban landscapes aren't all there is to Lawrence, though. This industrial center has an excellent park system and is rich in green spaces to enjoy with your pup. It also has two veterinary clinics to meet your dog's medical needs.
One of the best spots in Lawrence to explore with a canine companion is Den Rock Park. Designated as a city park in 1896, this 120-acre tract is a haven for wildlife. Its deep woods are home to deer, fox, beaver, and several species of raptors and songbirds. Den Rock Park is especially well known for its views of the Shawsheen River and its granite cliff face, which attracts rock climbing enthusiasts from miles around. You and your dog will be most appreciative of the extensive trail network that gives you several routes through the park. Return visits and deep exploration are rewarding in this peaceful place. Leashed dogs are welcome and you will need to bring your own waste bags and water.
In the words of Robert Frost, who grew up in Lawrence, your time exploring the city's parks with your canine companion will leave you "stirred to be the one so dog-preferred."
Best Dog Neighborhoods in Lawrence
The North Common neighborhood is home to a number of museums, and the Campagnone Common. This 17.5-acre park features lots of green space, a fountain dedicated to Robert Frost, and several memorials and historic markers along its beautifully manicured grounds. You can learn some of the city's history as you and your pup follow the walkways through the trees. The numerous pavilions, gazebos, and benches give you plenty of places to rest. You can continue your journey a couple of blocks north to the O'Neill and Immigrant Place Parks, which feature more green space, sports fields, and a riverfront walk. Your dog will need to stay on a leash, and you will need to bring your own waste bags and water.
Across the Merrimack River from the North Common neighborhood is South Common. A network of walkways cross the 11.5-acre O'Connell South Common, which is shaded by many tall trees. To the east, you'll find the Shawsheen River, along which is the aptly named Shawsheen Park, which includes sixteen acres of sports fields and open lawns. To the east, at the end of Greene Street, you'll find the trailhead of the Shawsheen River Trail, a half-mile scenic gravel trail that winds along the river. Leashed dogs are welcome at all trails and parks in this neighborhood. You will need to bring your own waste bags and water. For more outdoor fun, check out Sullivan Park in the southern part of this neighborhood.
This densely populated neighborhood includes the historic
Arlington-Basswood district, which features early-twentieth-century
housing units built for the city's factory workers. Arlington is also
loaded with parks! They all require dogs to be leashed, and you will need to bring your own waste bags and water. The
larger parks include the Hayden Schofield and Howard Playsteads, which
are mostly taken up by sports fields but have plenty of open space for your pup to sniff around. The smaller parks in the
neighborhood include William Kennedy Community Park, Plainsman Park, and Rowell Park, which offer a little more shade and landscaping. The recently completed 3.5-mile Spicket River Greenway connects William Kennedy Park and the Hayden Schofield Playstead to other Lawrence city parks and is a great place for a longer walk with your pup.
Tower Hill is a large residential neighborhood with many parks that are great places to take your dog. Manchester Street Park is one of the newest. This five-acre park is one of several parks connected by the Spicket River Greenway. It features both wooded and grassy areas, as well as a scenic riverside walk. Another neighborhood gem with water views is the Raymond J. Martin Riverside Park. Tall trees shade the park's many beautiful lawns. Several walking trails wind through wooded areas and along the Merrimack, where you will see many water birds. There are picnic tables, benches, and a gazebo where you can rest and take in the scenery. You will need to keep your dog on a leash and bring your own waste bags and water. Also in this neighborhood are the Reservoir, Francis Morse, Oxford Street, and Bruce School Parks.
South West Lawrence
South West Lawrence
This neighborhood features the largest of the three sections of the Lawrence Heritage State Park: the 45-acre Riverfront Park. Curling along the south shore of the Merrimack River, Riverfront Park features several sports facilities and a boathouse. Many trails wind through the park's wooded areas, which are great places for curious canines to look for squirrels. You can also stop along the riverbank to watch the waterfowl. There are several benches and gazebos where you can rest and give your good boy or girl some pets. As with all Lawrence city parks, you will need to keep your dog on a leash and bring your own waste bags and water.
