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!

Hi, my name is Rebekah. I grew up an animal lover in Maine, where I enjoyed living with a Blue Heeler/Sheppard mix named Sitka. I started walking and sitting for my friends’ and neighbors’ pets more than 5 years ago and have loved it ever since! Recently I’ve moved to Boston and am excited to be back in the area. I have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages. As an outdoorsy, active person, I’d love to meet your best friend and take them out for some fun and exciting exercise! I know each pup is as unique as they are loved, and I can’t wait to provide you both with the caring Wag! experience.

Picture a small town with a local feel, friendly residents, a rich colonial, military, and cultural history, and tons to do. Add on to that a plethora of pet-friendly attractions, and you've got Salem, Massachusetts!

Parks in the area include Leslie's Dog Retreat, which is run by SPACE (Salem Play Areas for Canine Exercise). Although you need a Pooch Pass ($25/year) to play, the park has many amenities, including shady spots, fenced-in yards based on size, running water, and play pools.

Or check out the Essex National Heritage Area, a coastal zone that extends for 40 miles, with many recreational opportunities along the way.

In the heart of Salem, there are many tours and modes of transportation that accommodate on-leash dogs. The Salem Ferry goes from Salem to Boston, from May to October. Dogs are welcome to enjoy the 45-minute ride. The Salem Trolley also allows friendly, on-leash dogs, as long as there is space and it is during the week. The Salem Maritime National Historic Site is open from 9am-5pm daily, and dogs are welcome to walk on the paths, as long as they do not enter buildings - try one of the excellent walking tours!
