I've always been around dogs. I grew up with them, and have surrounded myself with them every chance I get. I've been asked by friends and coworkers to sit for their Frenchies who just want to cuddle, their husky puppies who want to go for endless walks, and everything in-between. I worked at a dog friendly office for some time, and all the dogs in the office knew me as the person to go to for love and affection.

“You say “walk” and I say “how far? how long?””

I am a doctoral student with some extra time to commit to being healthy and active. Most humans are not available during the times of day that I am free, and so I hope to find some furry friends to accompany me on walks during the day. I love dogs for their dependability and companionship, and it is only fair that we humans show them the same respect. You can count on me to treat your friend with kindness and care, and to always be on time for them.

Dog Walking in Palmer

Palmer, Massachusetts is a small town that sits between two larger cities in MA: Springfield and Worcester. Palmer itself has two veterinary clinics to give your dog a clean bill of health, but you’ll have to travel a little to get to a place that’s a bit dog-friendlier.

Worcester is one of them, and it’ll take you between a half hour and an hour to reach almost any part of it from Palmer. Here, you can hop on the Blackstone River Bikeway with your dog, which has about 2.5 miles of scenic trail for you to enjoy. You can also head to Green Hill Park to visit the sporting fields, playground, pond, and even a Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial – just keep your dog leashed and cleaned up after!

Springfield offers quite a bit for dog lovers, too, like Forest Park, featuring play areas, picnic areas, and even a small zoo! You and your well-behaved, leashed dog are welcome to enjoy most areas of the park. Or, take a trip to the Springfield Armory National Historic Site and walk the grounds with your pup.

If you don’t mind hopping in the car with your dog, the surrounding areas of Palmer will give you plenty of paw-friendly adventures!
