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 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 Norwood

Neighborly and close to nature, Norwood, MA has a lot to recommend it. This friendly and family-oriented suburb is both close to Boston and only 35 minutes from Providence, RI. It’s hard not to be charmed by this small city -- as if the picturesque historic downtown wasn’t enough, the town is surrounded by lakes and bordered by a stretch of the Neponset River. There are also plenty of trails in the area, many of which are ideal for fur-friendly hiking! There are two veterinary clinics in Norwood to take care of your buddy, with emergency services available right in town.

Norwood doesn’t have its own dog park, but that doesn’t mean that you and your pooch can’t get some exercise! The town boasts several pawesome community parks. Francis William Bird Park is a lovely spot for a leashed walk. Right on the border of Norwood and Walpole, this park boasts over 89 acres of green space. Visit in the summer, and you and your pooch might be able to catch an open air movie showing! There aren’t any doggy dining options in town, but don’t worry -- you and your pooch will find plenty of places to chow down, as well as off-leash adventure options, just a short drive away!

Make no bones about it, if your pooch likes hiking, they’ll love the Noanet Woodlands! This furrific spot allows dogs off-leash as long as they’re in sight of their owners, so your pooch is free to sniff and explore acres of natural, fairytale woodland. You’ll find a trail here for every ability, from the fittest furry friend to the most committed couch pup-tato! Make it to the peak and you’ll be rewarded with a view of the Boston skyline. The trails are well-marked, but watch out for cyclists! And of course, you’ll need to bring your own water and some bags to keep this beautiful preserve clean.

The Sharon Dog Park in Deborah Sampson Park might not be the largest dog run going, but it’d still be a huge faux paws not to visit! There’s a separate space for smaller pooches, and everything you need in terms of water, bags and toys is provided, so all you need to do is BYOB (Bring Your Own Beast)!  There’s plenty of seating for tired owners, and there’s a picturesque pondside walking trail leading up to the park, so you and your pup can have a warm-up before your workout.

The Blue Hills Reservation in Milton is a fun hike year-round, but it’s extra special in fall, when the natural deciduous trees are ablaze in red, orange and yellow. If you and your pup are looking for a more challenging hike, try the Skyline Trail, a winding, narrow path with several steep inclines. Your pooch will need to be leashed, and remember to bring your own bags and water! Once you two have worked up an appetite, check out the Blue Hills Grille, a furrific little spot that welcomes wagging tails at outdoor tables.

The Larz Anderson Park in Forest Hills has a members-only dog park, but don’t let that deter you -- you can pick up a day pass from the town clerk’s office in Brookline for only five dollars. There’s plenty of space in the off-leash area for your pooch to leap about and tire themselves out in, but be careful -- the dog park isn’t fenced, so you might want to keep an eye on you little tearaway! The park is part of Brookline’s Green Dog Program, a pawesome local initiative that opens areas of the city to off-leash dogs at certain hours.

If you and your pooch are looking for a little variety in your activities, why not take a day trip to Boston’s South End and walk the Freedom Trail? Leashed pooches are welcome along the trail, which includes sixteen of Boston’s most important historic landmarks. Guided walking tours are also available. If your furry friend needs to run free after so long on the leash, check out the Carleton Court Dog Park. The park may be small, but there’s still plenty of space to play! And if you have time, be sure to stop in at the Polka Dog Bakery for some delicious, freshly made treats.
