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!

Dog Walking in Swampscott

Swampscott, Massachusetts is a town that has thrived since the early 17th century, because it was located in just the right spot for fishing and boating. In fact, one in three men here was a fisherman or boater. The rest were shoemakers. The invention of the lobster pot, which allowed fishing for lobster to become a substantial business, only helped the community thrive. The natural beauty of the sea drew people in and made them stay.

Today, Swampscott is a quaint, sparsely populated seaside town, making it the pawfect place to visit, or settle down and raise a family -- furry members included! It's also just 15 miles of Boston, which means you and Fido are never far from the dog-friendly amenities of the big city.

While you're here, you'd be barking mad not to check out Beach Bluff Park. You and your dog will love the open space and the ocean views here. The atmosphere at this furrific park is quiet and laid-back, making it the perfect place for walkies. There are plenty of walking trails to explore here.

Linscott Park is another wonderful spot in Swampscott to bring your dog. It's a huge green space with a pond and a fountain. You can stroll around the park, play a game of fetch, or just enjoy a picnic.

The beautiful coastal town of Nahant is about eight miles from Swampscott. It's home to a cute little park called Flash Road Park. While there are no trails to walk, there are lots of green grassy areas where you can play with your pup. The ball fields here are the place to be if you enjoy watching sports with your pup. You will need to keep your dog on a leash at all times. The park does have water fountains, but you will want to bring a water dish for your pooch. This is the place to be if you just want a little quiet place to play.

If you are looking for somewhere to take your dog to cool off, head on over to Nahant Dog Beach. This is an off-leash dog beach where you and Fido can play in the sand and surf and make some new canine companions. The downside of this dog beach is that it is not fenced at all. If you have a runner, you may have trouble getting him to come back, so make sure your pup has good recall skills. Bring lots of drinking water, because there is no running water here. You may want to bring a towel to clean off Fido's paws if you want to avoid muddy or sandy car seats.

Boston is a nice little drive from Swampscott at about twelve miles or so. Castle Island Beach is a barktastic place to have an adventure. Your dog can actually splash in the water and play at this off-leash dog beach! The downside is that there are no fences and it is usually crowded, so you have to work a little harder to keep up with your fur baby. Bring plenty of water to drink and your own doggie waste bags with you. The jets fly over when they are landing, which is a pretty epic adventure for your little humans. There are often food trucks close by where you can grab some grub.

If you do decide to make the twelve-mile trip to Boston, you should check out Pawsh Dog Boutique. This is a two-story shop that has everything you need to spoil, pamper, and provide for your puppy. You can get organic treats and food as well as toys and apparel. Your dog can come with your to pick out his very own toys as long as he is on a leash. Try some of their amazing lines of dog body wash, lotions, and even dog perfumes to keep Fido's fur looking (and smelling!) fresh.

If you've gallivanted around Boston and treated your fur baby to a shopping spree and a beach day, there's only one thing left on your itinerary: bring your dog over to the Living Room for dinner! This Fido-friendly eatery has all your pub favorites, plus a few others. You simply have to try the buffalo chicken and dumplings. Your dog has to be on a leash, but the wait staff will greet her with a bowl of water. If you decide that you want to order her a plate, just let them know it's for your pup and they will leave of the seasonings and serve the meal in a dog-friendly dish. What could be more pawesome than that?!
