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.

Dog Walking in Saugus

Saugus is a midsize town in Essex County that lies just 10 miles north of Boston on the North Shore. First settled in 1629, the Saugus Iron Works was created during those early years. Today, the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site is one of Saugus’ main points of interest. For pups, though, Saugus offers plenty of places to explore that's a little more up their alley, and with six veterinarians, you can feel safe.

If you are looking for amazing scenery, you will definitely find it at the Breakheart Reservation nestled in the northern end of Saugus. Sprawling over 600 acres, this park features two freshwater lakes, a section of the Saugus River, and rocky hills. Your pooch will love wandering around the network of trails.  He can sniff his way through hardwood forest and around the hills. Take the Inner Loop for 2 miles or the Outer Loop for three miles. You can also follow spur trails to tack on more mileage. Water is available, so be sure your pup stays hydrated.

The Bark Place Barking Lot is located inside Breakheart Reservation. This fenced dog park is a perfect spot to let your furry friend run free. After a walk through the Reservation, stop by for some off leash time. Your pooch can romp around with new playmates and burn off some energy. This park even has a faux fire hydrant. No wonder dogs love living in Saugus!

Prankers Pond is pupstastic spot to take your four legged walking buddy. This park is a local favorite, and anglers and picnickers love to spend time here. It’s surrounded by lush vegetation and groves of trees. Leash up your pup and circle the pond. She’ll love getting her exercise in such a pawsome setting. Since the Saugus River is nearby, your pooch will have a cool place to dip her paws if she gets too hot. Stackpole Field is also in the area. If your dog likes feeling grass beneath her paws, head over to this park and take a couple laps around the field.

Next time your pup needs some exercise, pay a visit to Rumney Marsh Reservation. This state park is located right on the Saugus and Pine Rivers estuary. Your pooch will love cruising around such unique terrain. Trails meander throughout open marshlands, providing visitors with expansive views of the area. Get your pup’s heart thumping with a brisk walk around the gravel paths. If your canine companion needs some added adventure, you can also fish, canoe, or kayak. Bird watching and educational programs are also available. Be sure to bring some water and a bowl for your furry walking buddy.

The Middlesex Fell Reservation is a quick six mile drive west of Saugus in Stoneham. This 2,500 acre slice of nature is a doggy paradise. As you venture into the wild with your four legged pal, you‘ll traverse rocky hills, pass through hardwood forests, and walk alongside Spot Pond. Trails vary in length, but the 7 mile Skyline Trail is a favorite. For some off leash time, stop by the Reservation’s Sheepfold Meadow. Your pal can ditch her leash and run free with her new playmates. Keep in mind, the area is not fenced, so your pup needs to be under voice control.

The Melrose Dog Park is located in the neighboring town of Melrose. It’s conveniently located four miles west of Saugus.  Your pooch can burn off some energy as he runs around with new four legged friends.  It’s a great place for him to socialize with the local canines. The park doesn’t have a separate area for small dogs. If you have a petit pooch, make sure he’s OK to romp around with big dogs. Large trees provide shade during the summer and a water fountain is also available. A trip to this park will definitely make your pup’s tail wag!

If your pooch is ready for a walk, grab her leash and head over to Pine Banks Park. It’s located in Malden, only 15 minutes from Saugus. Not only is the park home to multiple sports fields, it also has a wooded area with a pawsome network of trails. For some serious doggy cardio, follow Cray Trail to the top of Mount Ephraim. You’ll get some amazing views of the Boston skyline, and your pup will feel like a champ when she gets to the top! Picnic facilities are also available, so bring a lunch (and a treat for your pooch) and stay for the afternoon.
