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 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 Lynn

Lynn, Massachusetts, situated on the Atlantic Ocean about 10 miles north of Boston, is a coastal city with a welcoming beach area and a fragrant forest complete with vibrant wildlife and multiple options for outdoor activities. Lynn is also home to a dog park and two veterinary clinics within walking distance from downtown.

Parkland Avenue Dog Park is a simple but nice spot to start your adventures in Lynn with your pup. Hidden between Pine Grove Cemetery and Lynn Woods, this beautiful, fenced dog park is a local favorite of resident pooches. Depending on the time of day, you may bump into a bunch of friendly owners and their mutts, or you may find yourself playing fetch alone with your pooch.

If you're seeking an adventure, Lynn Woods is happy to welcome you and your leashed pup on multiple walking trails leading to a local garden, a cave to explore, and a stone tower providing picturesque views of Boston. Did all that fresh air make you hungry? Porthole Pub, serving hot and cold sandwiches and a bunch of tasty snacks, will welcome your furry baby at the waterfront deck seating. Time for chicken wings!

Nahant Beach is a small string of sandy heaven connecting Nahant and Lynn together. This unspoiled, pristine beach is just a perfect place to come by with Fido for a nice walk along the shoreline. Dogs are allowed to swim here from October 1st through April 30th. Attentive dog owners and friendly pups help maintain the area and keep it clean and attractive for new visitors. Even though the beach is clean, you shouldn't let your pup drink the water -- be sure to bring some with you! The beach's rules also insist that dogs need to be kept on leash at all times.
