Hi, my name is Elizabeth, I am an absolute animal lover! I am from the Cape but live in Rhode Island while I go to college, so I am looking to walk dogs in both of these areas. I have had dogs all my life including two Brittneys, a Black Lab, and a Beagle. I have had experience working with cats and dogs at an animal shelter as well as a grooming store. I am very excited to be apart of this company where I can spend time with animals, get outside and get exercise with your pups!

As a dedicated cat/dog dad, I have had the experience and pleasure of working with, owning, and loving many animals throughout my life. From growing up with a beautiful Black Lab named Hamilton to currently owning an adorable Terrier Mix named Skip, I've always been in the company of dogs. I've pet sat for friends and family and have taken care of many different breeds, so I've interacted with a wide variety of dogs to know how to read them to try and make them the happiest pup they can be!

Dog Walking in Woods Hole

The seaside village of Woods Hole, in the town of Falmouth on Cape Cod, was settled by fishermen and sailors because of its deep harbor, and became a whaling, fishing and shipbuilding town. Today, it is home to several marine science institutions and is a popular spot for tourists, many passing through on the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard. You and your fur-pup will find lots to do here! Rest assured that if she needs medical attention while in Woods Hole, there are several veterinarians in the area, including in Falmouth and East Falmouth. 

One of the popular outdoor features of Woods Hole is the Shining Sea Bikeway, a rail-trail that is not only for bicyclists. It’s a great place to walk with your pooch, too! It runs almost 11 miles from Woods Hole to North Falmouth, and is an easy, level, paved trail that hugs the coast of Vineyard Sound. It passes through the Salt Pond Bird Sanctuary, and by cranberry bogs, all the while providing the sights and smells that are unique to Cape Cod. You can find parking at the Steamship Authority lot at Woods Hole.

Whether you’re a visitor to the Woods Hole area or live here, you and your canine companion will find a lot to do year-round, from hikes and beaches to fine or casual restaurants. Have a woofderful time!
