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 Paul and I have had rescued three dogs since 1997. I had a large Bull Mastiff / St. Bernard mix named Veego that passed away at around 15 in 2012. I have had a German Shepherd since 2005, Honey is currently 14 years old. I have also had a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Ben since 2007 that is about to be ten. I have pet sat for lots of friends in the past. Pitbulls, Rotweiller, Labradors, Boxer, Pug, Chihuahuas, French Bulldog, and a few Terriers. Seeing any dog always puts a smile on my face, from abandoned rescues to show dogs. I enjoy learning their unique personalities and quirks. I will treat your dog (and home) like I do my own, with love and care. I've also been vegetarian / vegan for over 25 years and like to stay active. Reliable transportation for North Shore and Boston.

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 Readville

Readville, MA truly has the best of both worlds. Just thirty minutes away from Central Boston on the Franklin line, it’s also just a stone’s throw away from gorgeous state parks, reservations, and preserves. For history buffs, Readville needs no introduction -- it was home to Camp Meigs during the civil war, a training camp for Union soldiers. Cultured canines might get a kick out of wandering around the various monuments that now dot the large, open-air site. 

Readville is a diverse and family-friendly place -- it’s far enough away from the center of things to have a small-town vibe, but close enough for easy access to the many amenities the city has to offer. Unfortunately, there’s no veterinary clinic in Readville, but you’ll find a couple of clinics to take good care of your four-legged friend in nearby Dedham.

There’s no designated dog park in Readville, but that doesn’t mean you and your buddy are bound to be bored! Francis D. Martini Shell Park, on the border of Readville and Hyde Park, is very pawpular with local dogs and their owners, as it’s a great spot for some on-leash exercise. And don’t worry -- you and your pooch are sure to sniff out plenty of off-leash adventures in the surrounding area!

Just remember to bring your own water, as well as doggy bags to keep the area clean!

Stonybrook Reservation is a little bit hard to find -- the trailhead at Hyde Park is tucked away at the end of Turtle Pond Parkway -- but once you’re inside, you and your pooch might decide that this hidden gem was worth searching for! The park boasts eleven miles of easily walkable trails winding through a whopping 475 acres of wooded wonderland, leading up to the calm waters of Turtle Pond. Come on a weekday and you might even have this furrific little spot all to yourself! As an added bonus, the reservation is just a six-minute drive from Readville.

It should be clear by now that Readville isn’t lacking for nearby hiking options, but even with so many parks and preserves to choose from, the Noanet Woodlands are a real standout. Located just eight miles from Readville in Dover, this pup’s paradise allows dogs to sniff and explore its many trails off-leash -- just as long as they’re in sight of their owners! The trails here vary in length and incline, so there’s something for everyone, from the most athletic animals to less fit furry friends. Be sure to look up a map before you go!

If you and your pooch feel more secure in a fenced environment, Randolph Dog Park is a real mutts-visit! The park has a doggy obstacle course made up of tires, logs, and boulders, so your buddy is sure to get a thorough and entertaining workout. The huge open space is divided into separate sections for large and small dogs, so your fur ball can socialize no matter their size. Bags and water are provided, but be careful -- the park’s surface is mostly dirt and grass, so you might want to bring a towel for post-play clean-up if it’s been raining!

If you and your pooch are looking for something different to do, why not take a trip to the Arnold Arboretum? Managed by Harvard University, the arboretum boasts more than 15,000 varieties of plants and trees. There’s also a network of trails where you and your buddy can stretch your legs! The arboretum makes for a nice day out any time of the year, but it’s seriously special in spring, when you can feast your eyes on thousands of flowers in full bloom. Afterwards, you and your buddy can chow down at the Dogwood Cafe. This local staple serves up satisfying comfort food, and welcomes wagging tails outside.
