“It’s a good day for a walk!”

I have two dogs of my own and I’ve always had dogs dating back to my childhood. My partner is a vet technician and we actually came together over our love of dogs. My career allows me to work from home and I have a good amount of free time, which is why walking dogs is perfectly suited for me.

I have always loved animals and always had several of my own. I volunteered to walk dogs at Buddy Dog in Sudbury MA and loved it. I also helped start a cat rescue group in my hometown and have volunteered for them for 15 years. I recently retired from nursing after 30 years and have been doing dog walking and cat sitting by word of mouth. I love doing it and want to get more customers! I haven’t met a dog or cat I didn’t like, and vice versa. My schedule is flexible. Hope to hear from you soon!

Dog Walking in Rutland

Thirteen miles northwest of Worcester and fifty-two miles west of Boston, Rutland, MA has the distinction of being the exact geographic center of Massachusetts. In days gone by, Rutland was known for its clean air, and it became the home of a health resort during the 1880s, when tuberculosis patients would flock to the town for treatment. 

These days, Rutland is known as a tight-knit, family-friendly town with a strong community spirit. This civic pride is clearly displayed during the many events Rutland hosts during the year, from the Fourth of July Festival to the annual chowder cook-off -- most of which take place around the Central Tree, a tall maple that marks the middlemost point of the state.

Rutland doesn’t have its own dog run, but you two shouldn’t have too "ruff" a time finding things to do! You and your pooch are close to some beautiful state parks, and there’s a furrific hiking route with a trailhead right in town. For doggy dining, check out Rutland Marketplace -- they serve, paws down, the best sandwiches in town, and welcome wagging tails outside. You might need to drive a little to get to a place where your furry friend can run free, but with a long enough leash, you two are sure to find plenty of opportunities for adventure!

With a preserve like Rutland State Park on your doorstep, you’d be barking mad not visit! There are miles of forested trails to sniff and explore, and several have splendid views of peaceful Whitehall Pond. There’s a more sinister side to Rutland State Park, though -- it’s home to the ruins of an old prison camp. Built in the early 1900s, the camp housed drunkards and other minor offenders -- and there are some who swear it’s haunted. You and your buddy are free to explore the ruins, but don’t worry -- if you get spooked, a run in the fresh air on Whitehall Pond Beach will soon set you right!

If you and your pooch like your nature a little more maintained -- and free of the threat of ghostly tagalongs -- why not hike a section of the Mass Central Rail Trail? The 38-mile converted railway line is a pretty place to stretch all six of your legs any time of the year, but it’s simply extraordinary in fall, when the trees lining the route burst into a kaleidoscope of color. As an added bonus, there are several stone benches along the route, so you can take a load off if you feel like your pup has been walking you the past couple of miles!

Butler Farm Dog Park has a bit of a reputation for being exclusive -- it’s members-only, and membership was formerly available to residents of Millbury and Sutton only. However, the park has recently started accepting membership applications from pooches in other communities -- but places are limited, you’ll need your license and vaccination record on hand, and it’ll cost you $20 for the year. If that’s not a deal-breaker for you, then your buddy is sure to have a furrific time here -- the off-leash area is huge, and the doggy agility equipment makes for a thorough and entertaining workout!

You’ll need to drive all the way to Orange to get to a free fenced area where you can let your pooch loose -- but once you two get through the gates of North Quabbin Dog Park, you two might decide the trip was worth it! This pawesome park has three large, separate areas -- one for big dogs, one for smaller pups, and one taken up by a well-maintained doggy obstacle course! There’s plenty of space for your furry friend to leap about to their heart’s content, and bags and water are provided, so all you need to do is bring your buddy and prepare to play!

If you and your pooch are looking for a little more of a challenge, why not take a drive down to Worcester and hike Cascading Waters? The trek is short, but hilly, and the sound of the falls may well make you forget you’re in the middle of a city! Not only that, but the trail is extremely pawpular with local dog owners, and you and your buddy are sure to meet some furry friends on the route. Remember to bring your own bags and water! Afterward, you two can grab some deli at Bushel n’ Peck, a local gem that caters to canines outside.
