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.

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.

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.
