Hi! My name is Lauren. Thanks for considering me to walk your canine companion! I'm a lifelong dog lover and always excited to meet new dog friends. I've previously worked as a trainer and at a cage-free boarding facility (responsible for feeding and medicating all of the dogs!) I pride myself on being trustworthy, reliable, and conscientious, and will treat your pet with the same love and kindness as I would my own. I appreciate the trust placed in me by the owners and dogs and will do my best to earn it on every walk. Let's get walking!

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!
