Hi there, I'm Shanna! I have loved having dogs around me all my life, from one grandmother's obedience show dogs to the other grandmother's many adopted strays to the rescued Boxer who was my best friend as a kid, to the goofy fluffball spaniel back home in NH who shuns me whenever I pack to come back to Boston. I personally took both of my dogs through obedience training classes, and worked as a walker and sitter for neighbors for several years. I have been a pet sitter for oodles of other animals, from cats to chickens, and have several years of equestrian work and training experience as well. I can't have a dog with my current work schedule and apartment, so helping your furry friend get some exercise will be a wonderful way for me to get some canine companionship! I can't wait to meet your dog!

Dog Walking in North Chelmsford

North Chelmsford is a village within the town of Chelmsford. Although they share governments and school districts, both places are quick to point out that they are separate entities. North Chelmsford benefits from Chelmsford’s dog-friendly natural resources, and has a few of its own to share with local and visiting canines.

Varney Playground is located on Stony Brook Freeman Lake and features a small beach for sunbathing. The lake is swimmable, and Fido is allowed both on the beach and in the water, but must be on a lead. Varney Playground is much more than a playground for the human kiddies. It is a pleasant, large, well-groomed park that offers plenty of green space among the ball fields and play equipment to walk with your pup or throw down a blanket and loll a bit. There is ample parking, and a pathway and steps to the beach. Restrooms and drinking water are provided, too. Have a stroll around the park, sit under the many shade trees on the perimeter, or hang out on the beach. This place is pawtastic!

If your fur-pup needs medical attention while in the North Chelmsford area, be aware that there are at least 5 veterinarians and pet hospitals a few miles from North Chelmsford in Tyngsborough, Lowell, and Chelmsford. All are prepared to get your pup up and going again!


Whether you live in North Chelmsford or are just visiting, be sure to take advantage of the great natural resources here!

If you’re looking for a great place to fish for trout and Atlantic Salmon, look no further than the Merrimack River and its tributary, Deep Brook, as they flow through North Chelmsford. Nearly two dozen streams that empty into the Merrimack carry trout stock to the big River, and the mouth of Deep Brook in North Chelmsford is a great place to catch some for dinner, with Fido by your side guarding the bait! You may also see Atlantic Salmon fighting their way upstream from the ocean almost 50 miles away. Be sure to keep your fur buddy on leash as he may get distracted by some of the other anglers or wildlife in the area. Bone appetit!  When you've had enough fishing for the day, grab a paddle board or kayak, help Fido aboard, and have a gentle paddle around Freeman Lake at sunset. This is a peaceful way to close out your day, and your fur-pup will love sitting in the front to navigate!

This neighborhood in the town of Chelmsford is home to the Chelmsford Dog Park, also called the North Chelmsford Dog Park by some. In fact, there is a sign for each of these different names on the fence.  Developed and managed by the Chelmsford Dog Association, the roomy 2-acre park is completely fenced and safety-gated, with separate areas for large and small dogs. Drinking water is provided, except in the winter when the ground freezes. A pavilion with a picnic table and benches provide shelter for the humans minding and enjoying their dogs while they socialize and exercise in this grassy space. The park is open year-round from dawn to dusk. Waste bags and containers are not provided, so be sure to bring your own.

The town of Chelmsford is host to the dog-friendly, 67-acre Lime Quarry Reservation, which in the 1700s and 1800s was a source for the lime that was mixed into plaster for the walls of homes in Chelmsford and nearby Lowell. There are still many remnants of the quarries and kilns, and the area also features a trail that passes among them, through and over stone walls, and to an area of wetlands where many waterfowl and other wildlife live. This is a dog-friendly attraction, but your buddy must remain on his leash. The entrance to the trail is at the parking area on Littleton Road, and it passes through wooded areas and an open meadow. To make the adventure even more interesting, there is a rock walkway that can be challenging, and wooden bridges across streams through the woods. Woof-derful!

The Russell Mill Pond and Town Forest is in the Chelmsford neighborhood of South Chelmsford. This 132 acres is densely wooded, and features 3000 feet of shoreline along Russell Mill Pond. Dog-friendly for leashed fur-pups, this park boasts an extensive trail network perfect for walking, and a bike path for the mountain cyclists. If your goal is to romp or just relax with your canine companion, there is a large open area, and the shores of the pond are full of things to see and sniff! Also in this neighborhood is Thanksgiving Ground Forest, a 45-acre town forest that has frontage on Russell Mill Pond as well, and is an access point for water-based recreation such as canoeing and kayaking. Walking trails crisscross the Forest and feature massive stone boulders and outcroppings to challenge any climber, including Fido.

The Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, currently under construction, has opened its 7-mile Phase 1 section from Lowell Center through Chelmsford into Westford, MA. This paved, dog-friendly trail is open to non-motorized vehicles such as bicycles and skis, as well as being perfect for jogging, walking and rollerblading. Its path passes through woodlands and alongside Heart Pond in Chelmsford. It also passes by Gary’s Ice Cream, the perfect spot to stop for a “cold one” and some water with your pup. When completed, the entire trail from Lowell to Framingham will stretch 25 miles. There are access points, complete with restrooms and drinking water, along the route. Paw-rrific!
