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 Somerville

Ed Leathers Community Dog Park on the corner of Skilton Avenue and Medford Street in Somerville, Massachusetts. Ed Leathers Community Dog Park is better-suited for smaller dogs just because it’s not an overly-large dog park. This dog park is completely fenced-in and is covered with gravel to help eliminate muddy paws.

On the corner of Summer Street and Vinal Avenue in Somerville is the Nunziato Field Dog Park. This dog park doesn’t have any fancy bells or whistles, but it is completely fenced in, so owners don’t have to worry about their dogs playing off leash. There is no running water at Nunziato Field Dog Park, so owners are advised to bring drinking water for their pets.

About two miles down the road in the city of Cambridge is the Danehy Dog Park. The Danehy Dog Park is completely fenced-in and has a separate area for small dogs, so they don’t feel intimidated by large dogs during playtime. This park, like Ed Leathers Community Dog Park in Somerville, is completely covered with gravel to help eliminate muddy doggies. Danehy Dog Park has several benches for owners to relax on while watching their dogs run, and fresh drinking water is provided.
