Hi! Kristine here! I am a self professed dog person. I currently get to love on my two amazing children in their 20's and 3 amazing dogs! I have had a life full of puppy love and doggy kisses! I've been lucky enough to be the human companion to Bear, Barney,Ginger, Tanner, Lexi, Cobaka and Soukie and Titan! I've learned so much from each of them about love, friendship, patience and devotion. I am looking forward to the many wonders your pup will teach me!

I’ve loved dogs ever since I was born. I’ll run, play, and care for your dog like they are my own. I have had two golden retrievers and a black lab. Each dog is different in their own way and will show them the love and compassion they deserve. I have volunteered at animal shelters and rescue facilities over the years. One day I want to own my own rescue and rehabilitation center for animals.

Hi there! I am a lover of animals and I enjoy taking care of not only my own pet (currently living with mom), but also the pets of other animal lovers as well. Since childhood I have been a pet owner and have expansive experience in pet sitting and dog walking. I volunteered at a homeopathic pet boutique for a few years, so I gained experience and learned a lot about the health and care of animals. I very much enjoy being with these great companions and I would love to spend time with yours!

Dog Walking in New Bedford

Vibrant, coastal, and full of culture, New Bedford, MA has the distinction of being the sixth largest city in the state of Massachusetts. It might be one of the most historically interesting, too -- New Bedford was an old whaling community, propelled to the top of the industry by Lewis Temple’s invention of the toggling harpoon in 1848. Herman Melville set the opening chapters of Moby Dick here, and literary buffs will be glad to know that many of the places mentioned in the book are still standing (and that people still get upset if you stroll through the streets knocking their hats off).

New Bedford is still a thriving port city, but that’s not all it has to offer -- there’s also a strong creative scene, and the city was recently voted the seventh most artistic place in America.

Not only that, but the city welcomes wagging tails with open arms! New Bedford has its own dog park and plenty of pawesome community parks that are ideal for leashed walks. You’ll find some fantastically fur-friendly hiking options right in town, and your pooch is welcome to join you on many of the historic tours. No matter how long or short your stay, you and your salty sea dog are sure to have a whale of a time in New Bedford!

While you’re in New Bedford, it’d be a real faux paw not to check out the Walking Tour of New Bedford Whaling National Park! Your pup is welcome to join you on this free tour as you wander Historic New Bedford’s cobblestone streets and learn about the industry that made the city famous. You’ll also be able to walk past the Seaman’s Bethel mentioned in Moby Dick! Afterward, you two can grab a bite at Tia Maria’s European Cafe. This local gem serves up an eclectic mix of Old World and Portuguese dishes and caters to canines at their outdoor tables. Bone Appetit!

Captain Jack Peterson Memorial Dog Park really is a mutts-visit! Located on Hathaway Boulevard near New Bedford’s West End neighborhood, this off-leash area is a perfect place for your pal to lose the leash. There’s enough space in both the large and small dog areas for even the most hyperactive of hounds to burn off some excess energy, and bags and water are provided. As an added bonus, there’s also some well-maintained doggy agility equipment for that extra bit of canine cardio. There is a catch, though -- the city requires an annual membership fee of $25, but that's a small price to pay for this furrific park!

Portuguese City

New Bedford is known as the most Portuguese city in the US, with immigrants arriving here since the whaling days. Many of the festivals the town hosts celebrate this heritage, and the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament Festival may be the largest celebration of Portuguese culture in the world. New Bedford’s Portuguese City neighborhood is also home to the beginning of the furrific Cove Walk, a scenic stretch that sits atop one of the city’s flood barriers. You and your leashed pooch can take a stroll along and gaze out over the bay -- if you can, come here to see the sun rise or set.

No bones about it, Acushnet Sawmill is a pawfect place for you and your buddy to get back to nature! Formerly a large lumber yard located at the edge of New Bedford, the area has been given over to the great outdoors. The trail runs by the Acushnet River, which starts out serene and slow before cascading over stones at the other end of the park. On land, you’ll find natural wetlands, biodiverse meadows, and forest. Acushnet Sawmill is bursting with wildlife too -- so you might want to keep a tight leash on your little tearaway! Remember to bring bags and water!

You’d need to be barking mad not to bring your pooch to Fort Taber Park! Cultured canines might get a kick out of exploring the ruins of the pre-Civil War fort. The ruins are perfectly safe, but the ground can be uneven, so watch your step! If old buildings aren’t your thing, don’t worry -- there are plenty of walking paths throughout the park, all of them with fabulous views of the ocean, and non-furry family members might appreciate the playground. The park is mostly open lawn, though, so wrap up against the wind! There’s also a small beach nearby, and leashed doggos are welcome to walk on the sand.
