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.

Hi my name is Jill and I am the proud owner of an English Bulldog, Queen Cookie. I recently moved to Boston and Queen Cookie is living back home in CT with her Grama. I miss walking my furry companion and figured WAG was a great way to fill that void. I am comfortable walying dogs from 10 pounds to 120 pounds and can not wait to meet your fur baby!

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.
