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 Winthrop

Winthrop is a beautiful oceanside city in the greater Boston area. Originally Winthrop was settled in 1630, making it one of the oldest communities in the United States. With 7-miles of Atlantic Ocean that can be viewed from Winthrop, your pup is going to love visiting this beachy town filled with parks to run around in. Home to two veterinarians, your pup can be both happy and healthy in this great city.

Nick's Place is a fantastic spot to grab a bite to eat with your furry pal by your side. This pawsome eatery offers a huge menu that includes salads and mac n' cheese pizza. Their outdoor patio welcomes your pup to join you for a tasty meal.

Fort Heath Park is a great oceanside park to visit with your pup. Your and your pup can bask in the beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, plus there is a great little walking path and some green space for Fido to play around in. The Pond Street playground is just down the road from the Fort Heath Park and offers a playground, green space, and a nice walking trail that you and your pup can walk together.

With the beautiful views and lovely parks, your pup is going to love spending time with you in Winthrop.

Deer Island is a beautiful 2.6-mile island which gives you and your pup the perfect place for a great walk and some outdoor activities. The park includes a walking and jogging path, plus fishing, picnicking, and a great view of the ocean and of downtown Boston. Before Deer Island became a National Recreation Area, it was once a prison for the greater Massachusetts area, meaning there is history to explore here with the flora and fauna. Make sure to bring water with you while you and your pup explore this cool island off the peninsula of Winthrop. After checking out Deer Island, head over to Coughlin Park, another pawsome park off the coast. The park is fenced in and has a playground, benches, sports fields and a picnic area. If Fido isn't a fan of loud sounds, this may not be the park for him since a lot of planes fly overhead to land at the airport.

The park offers a great walking trail that Fido will love to go on, and you get a beautiful view of the marsh and natural wildlife in the area. The trail that the park offers is about 1/2 mile, so if you and Fido are in a hurry, this is a great park to get a walk in at. The park borders the short Beach Creek, and on the other side of the creek is the Fredricks Park. This smaller park offers a less crowded feel, plus it has a nice walking path and playground.
