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!

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 Wayland

While commuters might appreciate Wayland, MA’s convenient location, this peaceful, semi-rural community has a lot more to offer than simply being eighteen miles from Boston. Best known as the home of the first public library in the state (and for being the birthplace of Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler) Wayland takes great pride in preserving its idyllic surroundings. The marshes, forests and fields around the Sudsbury River look almost untouched by human life -- and provide some great opportunities for fur-friendly hiking! In terms of pet care, there are three veterinary clinics in town to look after your four legged friend, with out-of-hours emergency services available a short drive away in Natick.

There’s no designated dog park in Wayland, but wagging tails are welcome on many of the scenic natural trails in the area. The Loker Conservation and Recreation area in particular is a pawesome spot for a hike -- just remember to bring bags to keep this beautiful preserve clean! There are a couple of community parks for leashed walks, and the beach at Lake Cochituate is pawsitively gorgeous in summer. You’ll need to drive a little to find somewhere to let your furry friend run free, but don’t fret -- you’ll find plenty of options for off-leash adventures in the surrounding area!

For dog-friendly hiking, look no further than the Hamlen Woods Conservation Area, located just off Rice Road in Wayland. This preserve is over 100 acres of wooded wonderland, and features a trail for just about every age and ability, from the fittest furry friend to the most committed couch pup-tato! The main walking trail is two miles long, and runs past a serene pond and a running spring. Be sure to look up a trail map before you go -- some of the paths that branch off the main trail are dead ends, or lead to private land.

Make no bones about it; a trip to Cat Rock Park in Weston is sure to get your pooch’s tail wagging! This off-leash area has its own wooded trail that leads to a huge, open green space ideal for playing catch. If your fur baby loves to swim, they’ll have a whale of a time splashing about in the pond. The area isn’t fenced, though, so you might need to keep an eye on your little tearaway! You’ll also need to bring your own bags and bottle. After your workout, you and your buddy can cool down at Dairy Joy, a locally owned ice cream place that welcomes doggy diners at outdoor tables.

Callahan State Park in Framingham is a real mutts-visit! This huge, wooded park contains seven miles of marked trails, and the riot of color in fall needs to be seen to be believed. More importantly, though, Callahan State Park has its own off leash area! To be more exact, it has several of them -- dogs are allowed to run free on several of the trails, and there’s a huge green field for playing and socializing. There’s even a pond for swimming! Like Cat Rock Park, you’ll need to bring water and bags with you, but unlike Cat Rock, parking can be scarce, so it’s best to get there early.

Though the Watertown Dog Park isn’t nearly as big as either Cat Rock or Callahan State Park, it’d be a huge faux-paws not to visit! This huge park has plenty of wide open green space for your pooch to tear about and tire themselves out in. Unlike other dog parks in the area, this park is fenced in. As an added bonus, there’s plenty of parking, but you will need to bring your own bags and water. Once you and your pup are all tired out, you two can chow down at Wild Willy’s. This Old West themed joint serves up an excellent burger, and caters to canine customers outside.

Cultured canines will get a real kick out of visiting Lincoln! The de Cordova Sculpture Park and Museum is a furrific destination if you’re looking for something different to do with your dog. Leashed pooches are welcome throughout the grounds of the museum, which boasts a trail of truly thought-provoking modern sculptures by contemporary artists across thirty acres of parkland.  Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in the famous Walden Pond State Park, but nearby Pierce Park is a lovely little spot for a stroll, and features some beautiful landscaped gardens.
