Hi there, I'm Shanna! I have loved having dogs around me all my life, from one grandmother's obedience show dogs to the other grandmother's many adopted strays to the rescued Boxer who was my best friend as a kid, to the goofy fluffball spaniel back home in NH who shuns me whenever I pack to come back to Boston. I personally took both of my dogs through obedience training classes, and worked as a walker and sitter for neighbors for several years. I have been a pet sitter for oodles of other animals, from cats to chickens, and have several years of equestrian work and training experience as well. I can't have a dog with my current work schedule and apartment, so helping your furry friend get some exercise will be a wonderful way for me to get some canine companionship! I can't wait to meet your dog!

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.

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!

Hi, my name is Rebekah. I grew up an animal lover in Maine, where I enjoyed living with a Blue Heeler/Sheppard mix named Sitka. I started walking and sitting for my friends’ and neighbors’ pets more than 5 years ago and have loved it ever since! Recently I’ve moved to Boston and am excited to be back in the area. I have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages. As an outdoorsy, active person, I’d love to meet your best friend and take them out for some fun and exciting exercise! I know each pup is as unique as they are loved, and I can’t wait to provide you both with the caring Wag! experience.

Dog Walking in Lexington

The place where the first shots of the American Revolutionary War were fired is now a beautiful and tourist-friendly town offering a range of cultural and historic facilities and a charming downtown area bustling with shops and local businesses. Dog owners will love the challenging walking trails passing through the city, as well as the dog parks and three veterinary hospitals located here. You can find two more vet practices just a short drive away in Burlington.

 If you are looking to enjoy the great outdoors with your pooch, feel free to explore the 10-mile rail-trail running through suburban Boston from West Cambridge to South Road in Bedford. Minuteman Bikeway passes through Lexington and is considered one of the most pawpular places to visit during the summer. Don't forget to pay a visit to the beautiful Arlington Reservoir, where leashed pups are welcome in the park and near the water during the off-season.

Finding a good dog-friendly restaurant or café will not be a problem in Lexington. Downtown’s eateries are open to tail-waggers year-round, offering the comfort of outdoor tables and a variety of tasty treats. Bertucci's is a great choice, and serves delicious entrees like sautéed chicken piccata. Your pup will even get a complementary water bowl here!
