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

Newton, one of Boston's oldest suburbs, has a fancy nickname: “The Garden City”. That's because it features lots of beautiful green spaces to explore with Fido! If you're more of a history buff than a nature lover, you'll be happy to know that Newton is also home to some interesting historical sites. Getting veterinary help in Newton is easier than you may think. Four clinics cater to the canines in the area, although you'll find plenty more closer to downtown Boston.

Soule Recreation Center is the closest dog-friendly open space to Newton. Located in Chestnut Hill, this park is a great spot for active pooches to run, play and exercise, but make sure you keep on eye on your pup! The vast terrain isn't fenced, so if you've got a runner, be sure to keep them on a leash. This facility provides plenty of shade and grass, but no drinking water stations for pets or humans, so be sure to bring your own water.

Chestnut Hill Reservoir is a dog-friendly public park that provides convenient, easy access to the water, plenty of walking trails, shaded spots, and places to enjoy a picnic with your furry friend! Pooches must be leashed at all times here.
