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 Paul and I have had rescued three dogs since 1997. I had a large Bull Mastiff / St. Bernard mix named Veego that passed away at around 15 in 2012. I have had a German Shepherd since 2005, Honey is currently 14 years old. I have also had a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Ben since 2007 that is about to be ten. I have pet sat for lots of friends in the past. Pitbulls, Rotweiller, Labradors, Boxer, Pug, Chihuahuas, French Bulldog, and a few Terriers. Seeing any dog always puts a smile on my face, from abandoned rescues to show dogs. I enjoy learning their unique personalities and quirks. I will treat your dog (and home) like I do my own, with love and care. I've also been vegetarian / vegan for over 25 years and like to stay active. Reliable transportation for North Shore and Boston.

Hi my name is Jill and I am the proud owner of an English Bulldog, Queen Cookie. I recently moved to Boston and Queen Cookie is living back home in CT with her Grama. I miss walking my furry companion and figured WAG was a great way to fill that void. I am comfortable walying dogs from 10 pounds to 120 pounds and can not wait to meet your fur baby!

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.
