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!

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!

Dog Walking in North Reading

North Reading is a picturesque town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Created as an independent town in 1853, some of the well-preserved buildings and houses date back to 1730, and the town center retains this historical feel with a Federal style meeting house and a Federal village with period houses.

Adding to the ambiance of the town center is the recently completed, state-of-the-art North Reading High School. The amenities and beautiful surroundings the town has to offer -- as well as its proximity to Boston -- has seen North Reading become a very desirable spot for families to live. 

There are a number of parks and trails in North Reading and its surrounding areas for you and your pooch to explore, including Reading Town Forest, and Bare Meadow, both in the nearby town of Reading. With two highly-rated veterinary clinics located in central North Reading, as well as a number of dog grooming services both in town and nearby, you can be confident that your dog will be well looked after while you're here.

If you’re planning on spending a few days in the area, there are quite a few pet-friendly hotels available, including Red Roof Inn, and Best Western Plus in nearby Woburn.

Eisenhaures Pond Park is a scenic little park in the heart of North Reading. The park is based around the Eisenhaures Pond that gives it its name. There is a trail marked out around the pond. The trail is an easy, short walk with few elevation changes, so if you like leisurely walks, this is one for you. The pond is a quiet area with some ducks and even beaver activity. Indeed, Eisenhaures Pond Park is a bit of a hidden treasure, so you and your pooch may have the place all to yourselves to enjoy the peace and solitude of nature.

If you’re looking for something a little less secluded, then North Reading’s other park is for you. Ipswich River Park is a 49 acre site that features a conservation area and restored wetlands, a paved two-mile walking path, wild flower meadows, tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds and picnic areas, softball, baseball, soccer and all-purpose fields, a street hockey rink, and horseshoe pits. Phew! The planning and building of the $3.2 million Ipswich River Park was very much a labor of love for the local community, and the park is dedicated to all North Reading citizens – past, present, and future – and promises to hold something for everyone.

Sheepfold Dog Park is a 10-acre open meadow area located in Stoneham, Massachusetts as a part of the Middlesex Fells Reservation that is now used by dog walkers and picnickers. Within the Sheepfold area, dogs can run and play off-leash. This area is open to the public from 9 am to dusk. Outside of Sheepfold in the reservation, dogs must be on-leash at all times. There are woods nearby, and you can take a hike with your dog around the North Reservoir. As one visitor put it, “You’ll feel like you're deep in the wilderness!”

A little further afield but well worth checking out is the Dog Beach in Nahant, MA. There are only a few beaches on the North Shore where off-leash dogs are allowed during the summer, and this beach is one of them. In case you’re worried about your pooch wandering off into the water, Dog Beach has a rock wall which also acts as a barrier to keep dogs on the beach. Dog Beach is also a popular spot for kiteboarding and windsurfing, so you will have to keep an eye on Spot to make sure he doesn’t shred any kites!
