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 Roxbury

Now a neighborhood of Boston, Roxbury is a dissolved municipality located in Massachusetts. For those of us not familiar with government zoning jargon, here’s what that means. Although Roxbury was originally considered a unique city with its own governing bodies, in 1868, it was officially turned over to the city of Boston. This was a smart move for the city, considering this gave its residents access to all the benefits of Boston.

Residents can still get those benefits today! If you’re out and about looking for things to do with your canine companion, the heart of Boston is just a hop, skip, and a jump away! There are numerous restaurants where your pup can dine with you, and there’s also a nice selection of dog parks. If you’re looking for the perfect vet for your dog, you have many different options to choose from; pet owners only want the best for their fur baby, so it’s important to find a vet that works best for your family. There’s also an emergency vet clinic nearby, which is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Although the city is now a neighborhood, it certainly hasn’t downsized. Make sure to swing by!

If you’re looking to have a fun time with your dog while letting him enjoy some time off his leash, head to the appropriately South Boston Dog Park, located in – you guessed it – South Boston! This spacious park has tunnels so your dog can have some serious fun exploring. There’s plenty of seating for dog moms and dads. Water and waste disposal bags aren’t provided, so you’ll want to be sure to bring along your own. Your dog must be licensed to use this park; locals say this rule is strictly enforced. There are also a couple of dog-friendly restaurants in the neighborhood.

The nearby Griggs Park, located in Brookline, is only about three miles away from Roxbury, and it’s certainly worth the trip. Although it isn’t technically a dog park, Griggs Park does allow for your dog to have some fun off his leash from dawn until one o’clock in the afternoon. This means that your dog will have plenty of room to run around and get in his daily exercise! Because this isn’t a dog park, though, you’ll definitely want to bring your own water and waste disposal bags. Griggs Park also attracts many different kinds of people, including children, so make sure your dog is friendly to everyone!

Boston’s Allston neighborhood, located about twenty minutes from Roxbury, is home to Mansfield Street Dog Park. Locals claim that although this dog park is on the smaller side, there’s still plenty of room for your pooch to run around and play a nice game of tag with other dogs, or fetch with you! Knowing that rain is frequent, it was decided that this dog park would use pebbles instead of grass, so if you and your furry friend aren’t afraid of a little bit of water, don’t let a rainy day keep you from playing!

Less than five miles from Roxbury is Cambridge’s Cambridgeport neighborhood, and if the beautiful location isn’t enough to draw you there, maybe Pacific Street Dog Park will do the trick! This fenced-in dog park allows your dog to have some fun off his leash. Bring along Fido’s favorite toy, but make sure he’s willing to share it with his new canine friends. Locals warn that Pacific Street Dog Park does tend to flood when it rains, so keep that in mind before you go. You’ll want to bring along your own water and waste disposal bags.
