“I’d love to walk your dog!”

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I'm an artist and I love animals, have since I was a kid. I've always been told that I am a calm, kind, patient and observant person. Because of that, I feel like it’s always been easy for me to understand animals and get along with them. I'm currently working with a group of animators to create a short animated film and studio. I've spent a bit too much time indoors lately, so I'd love to get out more, and to do it while walking a dog would be a big plus!

Hi! My name is Lauren. Thanks for considering me to walk your canine companion! I'm a lifelong dog lover and always excited to meet new dog friends. I've previously worked as a trainer and at a cage-free boarding facility (responsible for feeding and medicating all of the dogs!) I pride myself on being trustworthy, reliable, and conscientious, and will treat your pet with the same love and kindness as I would my own. I appreciate the trust placed in me by the owners and dogs and will do my best to earn it on every walk. Let's get walking!

Dog Walking in Springfield

At the junction of the Westfield River, the Chicopee River, and the Mill River lies the city of Springfield, Massachusetts. The Springfield of Western New England is the first Springfield in the United States and is dubbed the City of Firsts. Springfield is not only of great economic importance but also seen as the cultural capital of the state.

One of the reasons why Springfield, Massachusetts, is considered one of the most beautiful cities of New England, is the vast amount of parks in the area. The natural sceneries that Springfield has to offer is a great fit for families, nature lovers, and dog owners.

The three most interesting parks in the region are the Dinosaur Footprints Park, which received its name after finding the gigantic tracks of the prehistoric animals, and the Forest Park, an attractive park that offers picnic areas, benches, restrooms and water fountains.

Visitors with dogs should definitely check out the Springfield Armory National Historic Site. Dogs are not allowed inside the buildings but are allowed on the museum grounds. The Springfield Armory was the first armory to start producing muskets and played an important role for the industrialization of the country.

Finding a place to stay in Springfield does not require a lot of effort. There are plenty pet-friendly hotels in town, including La Quinta Inn & Suites, Hampton Inn, Quality Inn and Red Roof Plus+.

A fun fact about the Sixteen Acres neighbourhood is that it doesn’t actually have sixteen acres: it has 4,506. Part of that expansive land includes Tamarack Bog, which is a wonderful wooded area and is nothing short of a magical adventure for you and your pup. If you like your walks together to be interactive with the surrounding nature, then this is definitely the place for your fur balls. You may want to bring bug spray with you as this area tends to be a bit buggy. But most importantly, for the sake of your four-legged friends, be on the lookout for ticks.
