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's Roberto! I've been passionate about caring for animals ever since I got my first dog, a beagle, as a kid. When I'm not spending time with my Boxer puppy, Billy, I love hiking, reading, and exploring downtown!

Best Dog Neighborhoods in Stow
Just a 10-minute drive east of Stow takes you to the town of Maynard, Massachusetts and the MayDOG Park. This dog park is an approximately 0.5-acre space where dogs of all sizes can interact with one another in a secure setting. MayDOG Park is easy to spot, because it's located right next to a solar panel field. The park is free to use, and it is surrounded by a high fence to keep dogs with springs for legs inside. The surface of the park is comprised of wood chips, which makes cleaning up after your pet nice and easy, and visitors love how well-maintained the park is. Be sure to bring your own water when you visit this dog park.
The northeastern tip of Waltham, Massachusetts is home to the Waltham City Dog Ranch, and it's less than a half-hour drive from Stow. The Waltham City Dog Ranch has an area for dogs under 30 pounds, as well as a section for bigger dogs. There is also some obstacle and agility equipment in the park, and the park provides visitors with doggy bags as well. Be sure to bring your own water when you visit the Dog Ranch. The park is surrounded by large fields, so if you'd like to take your dog for a leashed walk in addition to their off-leash play time, this is the perfect place to do so.
About 30 miles southwest of Stow, in the southern quadrant of Millbury, Massachusetts, sits the Butler Farm Dog Park. This fenced-in dog park requires a small annual fee to visit, and your dog must be registered with current tags. The membership fees go toward maintaining the park and keeping it clean and safe for all visitors. Throughout the park, you'll find a few obstacles and play structures where dogs can get a little extra stimulation than just running in circles -- although that's always fun, too! This park has a reputation for being frequented by friendly people and dogs, and running water and waste bags are available at the park.
Lowell is a city of more than 109,000 people in Massachusetts, and it's just over 20 miles from Stow. The city's northeast section is home to the Lowell Dog Park where you and your pooch are sure to make lots of friends. This dog park isn't particularly big, but there's enough space for your dog to burn off extra energy and explore with their doggy friends. You'll find some seating in the park, and doggy bags are also provided for visitors, but be sure to bring your own water. Lowell Dog Park isn't divided into big and little dog sections, so keep that in mind before you visit.
It only takes a little more than a 20-minute drive to get to Cat Rock Park in Weston, Massachusetts from Stow. This off-leash dog park is one of the most pawpular in the area, but with so much space, it never feels overcrowded. There is so much room to run around in this park, as well as trails to explore and a pond to swim in. At Cat Rock Park, you have the option of letting your dog run through the open spaces and get their exercise as you watch, or you can exercise right alongside them as you walk one of the trails together.
