I love dogs! I have experience with all sizes from XS Pomeranians to XL St. Bernard’s and Newfies, and everything in between. I'm a very active surfer, yogi, and hiker all over New England and love being out in the elements, including rain and snow. I spend a lot of time at the beach in any weather! I also work at South Boston Animal Hospital-you may have seen me behind the front desk. I would love to take your pup with me on a safe and fun adventure around the neighborhood!

“The road to my heart is paved with paw prints...”

I am a freelance filmmaker by day and an animal lover 24 hours a day! I have considered veterinary studies in the past but being overseas at the time made it impractical, as such studies weren't available in the region. I love the outdoors and exercising too. So it would be great to do so with the best of companions!

Dog Walking in Reading

Named after the British city, Reading, Massachusetts is a small, but strong community in Middlesex County and a great place to catch a breath of fresh air on your way to the state's metropolises. The close proximity of central Boston, which is located about 12 miles north, means you and Fido have plenty of recreation areas and dog-friendly places to explore nearby. You won't need to travel out of town to find quality vet care, though; there are four veterinary clinics here to keep your pup in tip-top shape, and plenty more in the surrounding areas.

If you would rather spend some time exploring nature instead of busy downtown areas, head to Reading Town Forest. This is a huge natural oasis with more than 300 acres of green space and trails for walking, hiking, and biking. Leashed dogs are very welcome here!

If you do want to see the city center, you can still enjoy some green space at Memorial Park with your leashed pooch before sharing a slice at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. Your dog will need to be on a leash while you chow down at the outdoor seating area.

Wilmington is the closest neighbor of Reading. This small, quaint town doesn't have many tourist attractions, but it does feature a great dog park right on Main Street. Wilmington Dog Park is a cool off-leash facility with lots of space to run and tennis balls to throw! Join the friendly company of the locals and “regulars” (as they would call themselves), and watch your pup socialize and have fun with some new canine companions. The park is surrounded by trails where you can also enjoy a nice leashed walk after all that playing!

Wyoming, a central neighborhood of Melrose, is the perfect place to visit with your pup. It's home to Melrose Dog Park, which provides easy access to Ell Pond and multiple walking trails stretching along the shoreline! The dog park has plenty of space and two sections for small and large pooches to play safely and separately. Each section is covered in wood chips and features doggy drinking fountains and benches for humans. After you're finished playing, relax at one of the outdoor tables (some with umbrellas!) at D’Amici’s Bakery, where you can savor a delicious dessert. (Be sure to bring dog-safe treats for when your pooch pulls those puppy dog eyes!)

The western part of Danvers is bordered by I-95, and provides a variety of public parks to explore with a leashed pooch. The real gem, though, is Danvers Dog Park, where your mutt can go dog wild off-leash! Located right next to Endicott Park and near the Curtis Way roundabout, this fenced dog park is a great place to visit in the morning for daily exercise and training. The area is covered in gravel and has some seating for humans, but drinking water facilities only operate seasonally. You can always grab a drink at one of the three outdoor tables at Nik’s Giovannis, a pet-friendly café with salads, kebabs, and a variety of beverages.
