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 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!

Dog Walking in Wellesley

Wellesley, Massachusetts is such a happy place that the original settlers wanted to name it Contentment. The beauty of the area is so natural and peaceful that you can easily see why they choose the name. The town's love for its children and animals is evident in its top-notch education system -- which has been rated one of the best in Massachusetts -- and its immaculate green spaces. Katharine Lee Bates, author of "America the Beautiful" and a professor at Wellesley College, was born and bred in Wellesley.

Come take a walk around Warren Park. It is a quaint and quiet little park, but it does have a nice walking trail. There are tire swings, rope swings, and lots of trees where you can sit and read a book. It is such a quiet and peaceful place that you and Fido will want to visit often!

Bring your dog with you to enjoy a meal at Coconut Thai Cafe. The authentic Thai food is just spicy enough to clear your head and let you enjoy your night out. The Tom Yum Soup is a local favorite and the one dish you simply must try.

No matter what you want to do with your dog in Wellesley, you and your furry friend are guaranteed to have a furrific time in this quaint town!

Perrin Park is a large park with multiple paved walking trails where you can take your dog for a nice stroll. There's plenty of natural shade where you can relax. Feel free to bring the human kiddos too -- they can play at the children's playground, dig in the sand pit, or enjoy a game on the sports fields. You will need to keep your dog on a leash while you are at the park, and follow all the park's rules and regulations. Perrin Park does have off-leash hours, which vary based on the season and day of the week. All dogs visiting Perrin Park must be licensed with the city of Wellesley, and are not allowed to explore the children's playground. Owners who don't follow the rules may be fined up to $200, so be sure to check the official city website for the full list of restrictions.

If all that playing at Perrin Park made you and your hound hungry, head on over to Pizza Peddler and Deli and grab a chicken alfredo pizza. This mouthwatering pie is a local favorite. This Fido-friendly eatery only has two tables where your dog can sit, so come early or call ahead. There is always a crowd, so you always have multiple opportunities to meet pet parents. You will want to bring your dog a water dish. If you don't want pizza, they do have subs, sandwiches, and heroes as well. The menu selection is huge, so you will leave with a full belly.

Linden Store is an old-fashioned deli that specializes in breakfast and lunch. You can bring your dog to enjoy an omelette or fried egg sandwich that will take you back to the days your mom made breakfast before school. The soups are from scratch and cooked every day. The cook decides the daily special so that the ingredients are always fresh. Linden Store has a nice-sized patio where you and your dog can watch the people go by while you wait for your meal. All dogs must be well-behaved and on a leash, and are not allowed to sit on the chairs.

Central Park is the place to walk your dog if you want to enjoy a green paw-idise right in the city. As you and your dog walk, you will see some amazing landscaping done by the city. The rules are simple: keep your dog on his leash at all times and clean up after him. This is a small, no-frills park which is open from dawn to dusk. There are a couple of benches here where you and Fido can take a breather after exploring Wellesley Square and everything it has to offer. Carry some water and doggie waste bags and you can spend all day taking in the city oasis. If you forgot to bring water, or want to grab a quick snack, stop in at the nearby Starbucks. You'll need to keep Fido tied up at the outdoor tables while you go inside.
