“Hi I’m Holly! Your trusted dog walker & companion!”

I have always had a deep love for animals, especially dogs. I have been dog sitting for years before working for Wag, which I have been doing for 2 years now. I volunteered at the NEAS in Salem MA for a year. I think it is very important to be compassionate about animals and it shows a lot about a persons character. I am reliable, dependable, friendly and active. I would love to take care of your companion! Plus who doesn’t love tail wags and puppy kisses?

Dog Walking in Rockport

Rockport is a beautiful coastal Massachusetts town that's both a fishing hub and an arts center. The Rockport Art Colony has been a significant part of the community since the mid-1800s, when it hosted artists including Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper. Many artists still call Rockport home, and lobster fishing remains a significant part of the local economy. You could have a great day with your dog simply walking along Rockport's scenic streets and around its marina and harbor. It also has one veterinary clinic to address your dog's medical needs. 

As you wander, make sure you don't miss Millbrook Meadow and Pond. Locals refer to this local park as their "green jewel." Rolling hills and a recently restored duck pond are among the sights that draw artists here to paint en plein air. Benches provide spots to rest and take in the beautifully manicured landscaping. Expansive grassy areas give you plenty of room to roam and romp with your dog. You will need to keep your pup on a leash at Millbrook Meadow and bring your own waste bags and water.

As your eye wanders from the masts of distant ships to your dog's wagging tail, you might just feel inspired to pick up a paintbrush to record your perfect day in Rockport.

Within a couple blocks' walk of Good Dog Gallery, you'll find two of the town's many dog-friendly restaurants, Top Dog and Roy Moore Lobster Co. Top Dog's menu includes fried seafood and themed hot dogs named after different dog breeds.

As with all beaches in the Rockport area, you can only bring your dog to the beaches in this neighborhood during the off-season between September 16 and May 30. If you're in town then, you can find two great beaches for on-leash walks here: Pebble Beach and Cape Hedge Beach. You can take your dog to the pawsome Delmater Sanctuary any time of year, which features a wide meadow, a cranberry bog, a pine grove, a scenic water tower, and one walking trail. You can find the trailhead for the Delmater Sanctuary Trail on South Street. You will need to keep your dog on a leash at all locations in this neighborhood and bring your own waste bags and water.

On a clear day, you can see the mountains of Maine from the rocky shores of Halibut Point State Park. Several trails wind through the varied landscapes of the park, which lets you examine everything from tide pools to forests and marshes. You will need to keep your dog on a leash and bring your own waste bags and water. Just down the street from the park, you can enjoy fresh seafood with an amazing view at Lobster Pool, a seasonal restaurant with dog-friendly outdoor seating. The picnic tables next to the sea are a great place to watch the sunset and refuel after a day spent at Halibut Point State Park.

Just west of the Cape Hedge neighborhood in Rockport lies East Gloucester. Like the beaches of Cape Hedge, the beaches here do not allow dogs during the main tourist season. However, you can bring your dog to Good Harbor Beach from October 1 to April 30. You can even let them off the leash on even-numbered days! Remember to bring your own waste bags and water. At low tide, you and your furry friend can walk across the sandbar to explore Salt Island. And is there a better way to end a day spent splashing in the salty sea than eating some pizza? You can enjoy a slice with your pup at the outdoor tables at Surfside Subs and Pizza just a little east of the beach.

The western side of Gloucester hosts the area's only off-leash dog park. The Gloucester Dog Park is located within Stage Fort Park on Gloucester's Western Harbor. It has separate areas for large and small dogs, waste bags, and water fountains. It also includes a canine obstacle course. You'll have to keep your dog on a leash throughout the rest of the park (except the beach areas, where dogs are prohibited). Walking trails wind through grassy and shaded areas to the Cupboard, an in-park restaurant that sells everything from fried clams to ice cream. Enjoy your food at dog-friendly outdoor tables or carry it anywhere you like in the park for a picnic. Nearby Ravenswood Park has no off-leash areas but boasts 600 acres of hemlock forests and magnolia swamps criss-crossed by an extensive trail network. Remember to bring your own waste bags and water.
