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 Perri, and I've been living in Boston for the past 7 years. Growing up, I had 2 chocolate labradors, Bubba and Dudley, who I cared for and followed me all around the neighborhood making friends. In my adult life, I've cared for/trained pets for friends and roommates including a pitbull puppy named Paisley, an English bulldog puppy named Jasper, and a Yorkshire Terrier named Tammy. I currently have a mixed breed rescue dog named Kane. He has opened up to me and become super sweet to people in the time that I've had him. I like dogs of all shapes and sizes, and I have the patience, temperament, and experience to handle many different breeds. I can't wait to meet your pup too!

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 Walpole

Walpole is a town in Norfolk County, Massachusetts that's only 13 miles south of downtown Boston. The town was first settled in 1659 and eventually incorporated in 1724, and today it has a population of more than 25,000. Like most of Massachusetts, Walpole has a humid continental climate with warm summers and cool, snowy winters. No matter the month, the temperature in Walpole usually accommodates adventuring outdoors quite nicely. There is so much to see and do in Walpole, and you and your dog will have a blast exploring the town. There are a handful of veterinary offices in Norfolk County and many more in nearby areas surrounding Walpole.

If you're looking for an excellent meal in Walpole that doesn't require leaving your dog at home, there are a few great options. Right on Main Street is a delicious Mexican restaurant called Jalapeno's Grill. Here, you can enjoy classic Mexican dishes like tacos, fajitas, burritos, or carne asada -- and, of course, no visit to a Mexican restaurant is complete without a refreshing margarita! Jalapeno's Grill has five outdoor tables where your dog can accompany you for a bite to eat before you head out to explore Walpole and surrounding areas on foot with Rover.

There's another excellent dog park that's just a 30-minute drive from Walpole in the Hastings area of Weston, Massachusetts. The Cat Rock Park is a massive off-leash dog park. However, it isn't fenced-in, so if your dog doesn't have good recall skills, it's a good idea to keep them on a leash. Leashed or not, you and your dog will have an excellent time at this dog park exploring all of the wooded trails, streams, and even a small pond where your dog can go swimming. The trails within the park are of varying difficulty, so whether you're looking for an intense workout with your dog or just a casual stroll, Cat Rock Park will work for you.

Cambridge has another excellent dog park that is also a 40-minute drive from Walpole, and it's located in the northern part of the city. North Cambridge is also known as "Area 11," and it doesn't have a large student population compared to the rest of Cambridge because it is located further from many of the school campuses in the city than other neighborhoods. Danehy Park is a beautiful space in Cambridge that many people visit to enjoy the sunshine and relax in tranquility. Within Danehy Park, there is now an off-leash area that includes a separate small dog area, drinking water, and seating.
