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 Roslindale

Roslindale is a residential Massachusetts town bordered by several parks and natural areas. The town is a beautiful place for those who love nature and being in the middle of it, but still want access to the conveniences of a city. If you are visiting or moving to the area with your dog, you will want to make sure your dog is well- behaved on leash. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are commonly seen walking with their owners through town, and a pup who is anxious on leash around other dogs may be subject to unnecessary stress. You will want to keep treats in your pocket to reward those good behaviors as you both get used to the town and its quiet charm.

Dog owners enjoy Roslindale for its greenery and wildlife. Your dog’s tail will be wagging throughout your walk as he watches all the birds go by and chases a squirrel or five! There is one dog-friendly restaurant here loved by the locals known as Sophia’s Grotto. Calling ahead is recommended to make sure their outdoor tables are set up and that the weather will permit outdoor service. There is one local animal hospital in town as well for all of your veterinary needs.
