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 Jill and I am the proud owner of an English Bulldog, Queen Cookie. I recently moved to Boston and Queen Cookie is living back home in CT with her Grama. I miss walking my furry companion and figured WAG was a great way to fill that void. I am comfortable walying dogs from 10 pounds to 120 pounds and can not wait to meet your fur baby!

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 Newtonville

Head on up to The Codfish State for a pawsome time exploring the populous suburbs and towns surrounding the state’s coastal capital of Boston. The neighborhood of Newtonville is one of thirteen that makes up the town of Newton, and welcomes all pups of every size, breed, and color to join in on all the fun! Don’t have too much fun though, or your pooch might need a visit to one of the six veterinarians located in Newtonville and the surrounding neighborhoods in the greater Newton area.

Whiff and woof your way into the heart of Newtonville to dig up some freshly-prepared baked goods at the Great Harvest Bread. Enjoy a hot cinnamon roll or a cheddar bacon scone at one of their pup-furiendly outdoor tables. You’ll have to tie up Fido while you order inside, but don’t be gone for too long, otherwise your pup will think you’re hogging all the bacon yourself!

Join other dog walkers at Newtonville’s pawpular Edmands Park for miles of naturally-preserved forests, unpaved paths and walking trails. Dog owners beware: Heed the “leash law” in the park, or else you might just end up with a $50 fine for allowing your pup some extra leeway (ruh-roh!).

So what are you waiting for? Newtonville, Massachusetts is waiting for your visit with your favorite four-legged pawtner!
