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!

Dog Walking in Westwood

Located a little more than half an hour from Boston, the town of Westwood, Massachusetts has made quite a name for itself since it was first incorporated in 1897. Money Magazine once listed it as one of the best places to live in the United States, and that’s especially true if you’re a history buff. Westwood is home to the oldest animal shelter in the United States, and it also lays claim to a cave where King Philip and his men supposedly hid during the war named for him. The town is also the former home of two men in the Hockey Hall of Fame, Fern Flaman and Milt Schmidt.

While these things might interest you, they probably don’t impress your dog. Unfortunately, there aren’t many dog-friendly opportunities in Westwood. There are, however, several opportunities for you and Fido not too far away. There are a few options for veterinarians located within Westwood, so even though you might have to travel to visit a dog park or dog-friendly restaurant, you won’t have to do so to get care for your dog when he needs it the most. Don’t write Westwood off completely, though; you can your dog can still go for a walk and enjoy a scenic view.

It’s about ten minutes from Westwood, and as the name implies, this sweet shop offers frozen custard and mouthwatering milkshakes.

Okay, so Larz Anderson Park -- located about fifteen minutes away from Westwood -- isn’t technically a dog park. During the summer, though, your dog can run around and have some fun off his leash between nine in the morning and one in the afternoon. During the winter, your dog is allowed off his leash at all times. You have to keep your furry friend away from the playground, though, for safety purposes. Make sure to bring along waste disposal bags and water for your pooch! It’d also be best to have a leash on hand in case you need one.
