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 Needham Heights

Needham Heights is a northern neighborhood of Needham, a town in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. The neighborhood is set in close proximity to recreation areas, as well as to the commercial center in downtown Needham, which offers a range of pet-friendly eateries and a few public parks for on-leash walkies. Needham Heights is also home to two veterinary clinics, so you won't even have to travel out of the borough to find quality vet care.

Needham Memorial Park is the closest historic spot to visit with Fido for a brief walk along shaded hiking trails. However, there are more comfortable and interesting places to spend a weekend or a day off exploring nature and watching wild animals in their natural habitat. Cutler Park Reservation is a state park with wetlands, marsh and a lake -- a perfect spot to take Fido for bird-watching in a quiet area. Fishing, hiking, and canoeing are also available, but just remember to keep your pooch on a leash. 

Take Fido for a doggie dinner date in Needham downtown! Petite Robert Bistro is a cozy authentic cafe with a friendly staff and French cuisine served at the outdoor tables.

Needham Heights is the pawfect place for dog owners to live or visit!

Located not far from the Boston College area in Newton, Massachusetts, Chestnut Hill is an eastern neighborhood less than 6 miles from downtown. You won't be able to resist the New England allure of the neighborhood, which offers a few amazing spots to bring Fido. Don't miss Chestnut Hill Reservoir, an awesome place with quiet surroundings, picturesque views, and plenty of walking trails to explore. Since it's connected to the public recreation area, pooches should stay on-leash at all times. Craving a sweet treat after all that exploring? Head to White Mountain Creamery! The shop sells dozens of sweets, and the staff will be happy to welcome your leashed pup inside the building.

Brighton is a Boston neighborhood located in the northwestern region of the city, just a few miles away from the borough of Newton Corner.  There are several recreation areas in the heart of Brighton, but the coolest spot is Rogers Park, a marvelous dog park dedicated entirely to canines and their loyal owners. Even though it is a public park, you will meet plenty of other dog owners enjoying their day out with their pups, playing fetch and showing off their dogs' cool tricks. Be sure to join the pack so Fido can show off and sniff out some new friends.

Aspinwall Hill

Aspinwall Hill

A Brookline neighborhood, Aspinwall Hill is a nice but rather busy place, with a bustling commercial area and lots of traffic near Beacon and Washington streets. According to Brookline's leash laws, pooches are welcome to go wild off-leash in the public parks from dawn to 9 am. If you have a buddy who would prefer a good run to a good sleep, enjoy the small but well-shaded area of Schick Park. The park is fenced and has benches -- however, it does not have drinking water facilities, so you'll need to bring some. Want more playtime? Jean Waldstein Playground is another nice public park with off-leash policies for mutts before 9 am.

Emerson Gardens is one of the central neighborhoods in Brookline with a super busy commercial area and a variety of eateries. It's also home to a few public recreation spots, which are effectively dog parks early in the morning! According to Brookline’s Green Dog Park Program, the public parks become a great place to play off-leash with Fido and burn some energy! However, the timing is a bit unusual -- dogs are allowed off-leash from dawn to 9 am. If you have a morning person (or pup!) with you, do check out Emerson Gardens, a public park with an extensive playground, shade, benches and lots of room to run. Then, head to Daniel F. Ford Park for more off-leash fun!
