“It’s a good day for a walk!”

I have two dogs of my own and I’ve always had dogs dating back to my childhood. My partner is a vet technician and we actually came together over our love of dogs. My career allows me to work from home and I have a good amount of free time, which is why walking dogs is perfectly suited for me.

“Doggy Suite with Fenced in yard”

I’ve been around dogs all my life. I currently have dogs myself and during my free time, I like to take care of other dogs. I’m very good at reading dogs, so if they seem a little tired, I take it a little slower. If they like a little more fast-paced, I take it a little faster. Your dog will be in good hands with me, I promise!

Dog Walking in Northborough

Northborough is a mostly rural town that serves as home to commuters to Boston and Worcester. It is also a pup-friendly town filled with trail systems, parks and campgrounds that are perfect for outdoor adventures for you and your fur-buddy. There is also one veterinarian in Northborough ready to assist in helping your pup keep healthy.

For pawsome outdoor fun, head to the Mt Pisgah Conservation Area, an 83-acre tract of land that is wild and rural. It contains a large area with trails, along which you can see some extraordinary views of the surrounding area. In Northborough, access is via Smith Road and there is a small free parking lot. From there, you will see vast hayfields with a path leading to the wooded trails of Mt. Pisgah. The trails form a network that crisscross the small mountain, and eventually you will be able to get to the top for spectacular views of ponds and forest. The Mentzer Trail, approximately .5 miles, traverses Howard Brook where you will see a small set of falls. Hunting is permitted on parts of the property, so be sure to check and to equip yourself and Fido with blaze orange for safety. 

There is a lot to do in the Northborough area for outdoors-loving folks and their pups, from hikes to dog-friendly restaurants! Arf!

The Northborough Town Center neighborhood is home to Assabet Park, a dog-friendly park with many activities for the young kiddos, including a Splash Pad, but best of all are the trails. The trails are laid out in 2 intersecting loops between the park and a nearby residential neighborhood. With very gentle slopes, the trails are pup-friendly to dogs on leash. A kiosk at the entrance provides information about the trails, and what you and your furry friend will see while on them. When you’ve walked enough and need to satisfy your hunger pangs, head back to Assabet Park and enjoy a casual meal at the grills and pawsome picnic area! Or head over to the C’est La Vie Bistro where you’ll find an outdoor table for you and Fido where you can enjoy soups, salads, sandwiches, crepes and other casual fare. Bone appetit!

In the southeast corner of this neighborhood in Northborough lies Crane Swamp, which contains a network of looped trails, notably the dog-friendly Cedar Hill and Sawink Farm Trail. This trail system covers wetland, meadows, woodlands and large, oblong mounds of earth called drumlins. Packed dirt and boardwalk make the hiking moderately easy, and the scenic views from the tops of the drumlins take in parts of Westborough and Northborough. You and your leashed pup will see wildflowers in season, as well as birds, butterflies and other wildlife along the way.  Fido will no doubt smell or see the red fox or coyote that inhabit the area long before you do, but you may notice their scat (waste) in the middle of your path through the meadows. In the winter, these pawrrific trails are open for snowshoeing as well. This neighborhood is also home to the Edmund Hill Woods Trail, which climbs another drumlin to pawsome views of Lake Assabet! This trail features tall pine forest and impressive boulder formations. Woofderful!

Cold Harbor Brook is a park in this neighborhood of Northborough that contains a 4.3-mile, leashed-pup-friendly out-and-back trail along its western border, around and through wetlands. It follows along some residential streets, but is largely within the park. You can leave your car at a lot off Main St and hike north to the end of the trail at Church St. The brook that gives this park its name is a medium-sized tributary of the Assabet River, and is perfect for a canoe or kayak paddle with Fido on a nice day. Also residing in this neighborhood is Hop Brook Conservation Area, 93 acres of land with educational trails that are open to dogs on leash. It features a large pond, wetlands and forested land that hold significant numbers of amphibians and small mammals, along with birds for Fido to scent. Access is via Dutton Road.

This neighborhood in Southborough is home to the Breakneck Hill Conservation Land, approximately 90 acres that contain 3 miles of pup-friendly hiking trails, with free parking. The trails are mostly mowed grass, with 2 trails looping through forested land. The kiosk at the trailhead spells out the rules, which include that Fido must be under your control while on the trails, with no specific mention of leashes. Arf! When the ground is covered with snow, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are permitted off the trails, but during the rest of the year, walking off-trail is not allowed to protect nesting and plant life. Crisscrossing the pastures of this former farm, this pawsome network of trails can be accessed from the parking area on Breakneck Hill Road.

This neighborhood in Framingham , about 12 miles east of Northborough, is where you’ll find dog-friendly Callahan State Park, where you and your pup can hike through the 820 acres on 7 miles of intersecting marked trails. Allowed off-leash, but on voice control throughout much of the park, Fido needs to be leashed where trails follow private property lines and in the parking area. About 100 acres of the park are open fields, perfect for running and playing catch or frisbee, and there are waste bag stations posted here and there for convenience. There are even ponds for your fur-pup to cool off in, and parking is free. It’s woofderful!
