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 Nahant

The town of Nahant, Massachusetts was first settled back in 1630, when the second wave of Puritans arrived. The town was already named, though. Native Americans called the land Nahant, which means “the point.” That’s exactly what Nahant is: a point jutting off the state it's attached to. Although Nahant has grown since its founding, and it became officially incorporated in 1853, the town is still the smallest in Essex County.

Nahant is known for being a resort town, and it’s not just a vacation spot for us humans. Nahant has a couple of fun places you can visit with your dog! Unfortunately, the town doesn’t have any dog-friendly restaurants, so if you’re looking to dine with your dog, your best bet is to visit the beach and bring along a picnic. Nahant also doesn’t have any veterinarian clinics, so if you need care for your sick or injured dog, you’ll have to take him to the nearby city of Lynn, which, thankfully, is only four miles away. Don’t be discouraged, though; there’s plenty to do within a quick drive of Nahant, so if you’re looking for a fun vacation spot for the whole family, make sure to give Nahant a chance!

If your dog likes going for a swim, make sure to take him to Baileys Point, where he can visit Nahant Doggie Beach! The beach is open to dogs from the beginning of October to the end of April. Although your dog is technically supposed to be on a leash, locals say that many people don’t pay attention to that rule. Use your best judgement, though. Make sure to bring fresh water for your pooch, and you’ll also want to have some waste bags on hand to clean up after Fido. Make a day of it by bringing along a picnic lunch!

Just four miles north of Nahant, you and your playful pup can visit Lynn’s Barkland Avenue Dog Park! This bark park, which is located on Parkland Avenue, is fully fenced in, allowing your dog to safely get some off-leash exercise. There are separate areas for small and large dogs. Technically, only dogs registered in Lynn are allowed to use the park, but locals say that no one checks registration, so people and dogs from different areas come to play. Water and waste bags are provided, so you can leave your own at home.

The trail guarantees that the two of you can explore without worrying about Fido picking up any nasty fleas or ticks. If you’re not in the off-leash dog park section of the reservation, you’ll need to keep Fido on a leash. Make sure to bring along water, and please clean up after your dog.

If you and your dog love seeing local wildlife together, why not visit Boston’s Belle Isle Marsh? This popular reservation, located about nine miles from Nahant, has a wonderful trail for you and Sparky to walk together. Locals love visiting the park to see the marsh birds. Because of the local wildlife, your dog must remain on his leash at all times; there are no exceptions. Make sure to bring along your camera or phone to take pictures of any wildlife you see. Remember to bring along water and to clean up after your dog, as well.
