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.

Dog Walking in Roxbury Crossing

The Boston neighborhood of Roxbury Crossing has existed since the 1630s, when one of the earliest settlements in the area was founded there. Roxbury Crossing and a collection of the nearby neighborhoods such as Brookline used to be independent settlements. Over time, other areas expanded, and Roxbury Crossing was swallowed up by the expanding city of Boston. This packed urban area is well served by the communities around it; though there aren’t any vets inside Roxbury Crossing limits, there are dozens in the Boston area ready to help animals in need.

If you and your dog are spending some time in Roxbuxy Crossing, treat yourselves to a meal at Lilly's Gourmet Pasta Express, where casual and succulent Italian food can be served at an outdoor table.

If you need to stretch your legs and work off that meal, head to Ramsay Park. This simple urban park is a green oasis in a packed city neighborhood. Your dog will love walking on the grass and watching all the people pass to and fro!

Roxbury Crossing was a small town that became an important neighborhood. Both human and canine residents and visitors will enjoy the community touches that make the area so special.
