I love all animals, and have owned and dog-sat a variety of dogs throughout my life. I have 2 rescue dogs, Indiana Jones and Matheson, and get great joy out of spending time with them and watching other dogs, too. I know how important exercise is in a dogs life, and how important convenience is to dog parents. I'd like to be able to help solve both of these things by being available as a walker for dogs of all sizes, breeds, and activity levels - to put some fun and movement into their day!

I have had a hand in caring for dogs my entire life, from small Yorkies to boisterous Labs and Cockapoos. Since I was little I have helped feed, walk, groom, and bathe my family pets. I was even the one to apply medication to one of my dog’s eyes since, at the time, I wanted to be a vet. I love dogs and missed having one in my life, so I began volunteering at a local shelter. Working in a shelter environment has taught me so much about dogs and their language. I am passionate about working with dogs and have been researching during my free time and learning more about positive reinforcement.

Dog Walking in Newburyport

Newburyport is a charming town in Essex County. Situated right where the Merrimack River empties into the Atlantic Ocean, this small coastal village was originally settled in 1764. Decades later, it draws in visitors for its seaside locale, spectacular restaurants, and premier boating community. With three pawsome veterinary clinics, it’s also a great place to raise a four legged family member. 

Don’t feel like cooking dinner? Pack up your pooch and grab a bit to eat at one of Newburyport’s pet friendly restaurants. Courtyard has something for everyone with menu items that include hot and cold subs, pizza, and seafood. While you chow down on your meal at one of the outdoor tables, your pal can hang out by your side. If you’re craving some hearty pub grub, head on over to The Port Tavern. Order some Shepherd’s Pie or a meaty Reuben Sandwich, then pull up a seat at one of the dog friendly outdoor tables.

A walk with your pooch on the Clipper City Rail Trail and Harborwalk is the perfect way to see the beauty and appeal of Newburyport. The paved trail is just over a mile and crosses through neighborhoods and waterfront areas. This trail will definitely make your pup’s tail wag!

Treat your dog to a walk in Cashman Park where paved walking paths weave in and around this riverside area. Not only will your pooch get some much needed exercise, but she’ll also enjoy pawsome views of the Merrimack River. After a nice stroll, take a break on one of the park benches. She can rest her paws and you can watch the boats roll by. There is also an off leash area in the park. Although this is not an actual dog park, dogs are allowed to romp around off leash. Just keep an eye on your pooch as this section is not fenced in.

Step back in time with a trip to the Maudslay State Park. A former estate, this 480 acre property has spectacular 19th century style gardens and white pine trees. It also has views of both the Artichoke and Merrimack Rivers. Take your pup for an enchanted walk through gardens of rhododendrons, azaleas, and roses. Venture down paths like Ridge Trail, Long Border Trail, or Laurel Walk. Your four legged walking buddy will absolutely love exercising in such a stunning location. The canopies of the pines are known to house bald eagles, so keep your eyes open for these majestic birds.

If your pooch is begging for a walk, clip on his leash and head over to Moseley Woods. This forested park sits on the banks of the Merrimack River. Its large playground and zip line make it a favorite for families with children. Although dogs are not allowed in the play area, they are welcome to explore the trails that lead through the woods. Briskly walk around the paths so your dog can get a good workout. Once he’s tuckered out, relax and enjoy a view of the river at one of the picnic tables. Be sure to bring some water (and a treat) for your pup.

Looking for a new place to walk your furry BFF? Cross the bridge over Merrimack River to the nearby town of Salisbury and take a stroll down the Salisbury Point Ghost Trail. Don’t let the name spook you, the trail does not have a haunted past. The railcars that once used this old rail corridor used to transport ghostly looking muslin covered auto bodies. Today, this two mile trail provides a peaceful walk through the woods. The terrain is flat, so it is perfect for a mellow afternoon ramble. You and your four legged pal will leave feeling refreshed and invigorated.

If you have an ocean loving pup, Salisbury Beach State Reservation is the place to be. Located just across the Merrimack River in Salisbury, this beach is only a 15 minute drive from Newburyport. It’s situated right where the Merrimack River empties into the ocean. There is a great stretch of sand for walking and digging. Dogs aren’t allowed on the ocean side of the park between April 1 and September 15, but they can enjoy this seaside beach during the rest of the year.  Fur-tunately, your four legged friend is welcome on the river side of the park all year long.
