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 Newton Centre

Newton Centre is a small village in Massachusetts, one of thirteen that make up the city of Newton. Many of the villages in the larger Newton area have thriving downtown areas of their own, as well as thriving economies and the populations are nothing to sneeze at either! Newton Centre, as the name implies, is towards the center of Newton. While the area is small, it’s a must-see area for the dog enthusiast in all of us. 

It boasts dog-friendly restaurants in the immediate area, like Sandwich Works, a sandwich shop with a number of hot and cold sandwich selections among a plethora of other choices. Your dog isn’t just welcome here; you’re encouraged to bring your pup along! A water bowl will be provided for your wily woofer, and fresh drinking water is available when requested. Although the outdoor area where your dog is welcome is only made up of two tables, it lends the privacy any shy dog could want. It’s just large enough to make a new pup pal, and the perfect size for a moment of solitude with master.

With Boston and other large cities also being nearby, the merits of Newton Centre are obvious!
