Proud animal lover and dog mom of two chihuahuas! I’ve walked all kinds of dogs with the Humane Society for two years, and I’ve taken two dog training and intelligence courses. I’m currently studying in Connecticut, but I am staying in my hometown- where I’ve grown up for most of my life- for the summer. I’ve just started working with Wag! but I am committed to providing the best possible service!

My animal care experience began in 2019 when I started volunteering weekly at a local animal shelter. I have walked a wide variety of dogs: small and large, high-energy and low-energy, well behaved and behaviorally-challenged, etc. When I spend time with a dog, my goal is to let the dog be a dog. If the dog is accepting, I will give it pets and belly rubs. I will play with the dog and let it explore all the amazing scents of the outdoors. And, of course, I will pick up any dog poop.

Hello there! My name is Abbey Rose and I'm a PA student in Boston with lots of experience sitting, walking, and owning dogs! I was raised along with George the Golden Retriever, and learned to love playing, walking, teaching, and wrestling with dogs at an early age. After George passed away, I kept dogs in my life by being the designated dog-sitter for all family and friends. Last year, I started working for Sandy Paws Dog Walking and Pet Sitting company in CT and learned more about professional walking, and especially enjoyed being taught by Bryony, the owner of the company, about canine behavior, training, and dog walking ettiquette. Now I've moved to Boston and am ready to put my skills to work with your pups!

Dog Walking in Eliot

Eliot is a friendly, family-oriented small town in Maine. You can take a stroll through the historic buildings in this charming town on your morning walk with Fido, or head down to the waterfront along the northern shore of the Piscataqua River. The quaint parks and trails, along with the veterinary hospital right in town, make it a breeze to raise a happy, healthy puppy in Eliot!

Eliot clearly loves their dogs, because they’ve created their very own dog park, the Barks and Rec Dog Park. This park provides a safe environment for pups to enjoy some glorious off-leash freedom and make furry friends. There are two separate fenced off areas, one for large breeds and another for the little guys. Waste bags and drinking water are also provided, so all you need to bring is your dog’s favorite ball! Outside the fenced area, there is a bench where owners can kick back and watch the fun.

Surrounding the Barks and Rec Dog Park is the Frost Tufts Park and Ballpark. This urban park is a great place for a family picnic that you can enjoy at the tables, in the pavilion, or in the open grassy areas. Other amenities include athletic fields, a playground, and portable toilets. Dogs are welcome in all of these areas, but need to stay leashed when they’re not within the fenced dog park.

With all of these dog friendly features, you and your pup are sure to feel right at home in Eliot!

Eliot has a variety of urban parks that you get to enjoy with your pooch! The Dixon Road Recreational Area is a favorite, featuring a volleyball court, horseshoe pits and a gazebo.

The trail is partially forest floor, and partially boardwalk, meandering through a cool pine plantation and wetlands. The trail attracts hikers, trail runners, dog walkers, and snowshoers in the winter. Leashed dogs are welcome, as long as you follow Leave No Trace principles and pick up after your pooch!

To let your pup run, rinse and repeat in the Atlantic Ocean, head over to the Kittery Point neighborhood in Kittery, just a 20 minute drive from Eliot. The drive is worth it! Here you can find the beach that all the dogs are barking about, Seapoint Beach. Dogs are allowed to enjoy this beach with their humans, except during the tourist season that runs June 15th to September 10th between 10am and 5pm. During the allowed times, your dog can be off-leash, as long as they stay under the control of their owner and are picked up after. If you're not up for the beach today, head over to the Fort McClary State Historic Site, located in the same neighborhood. Here you and your pup can enjoy walking through the military ruins set up against a beautiful ocean backdrop. You can learn about the history of the fort through interpretive signs. Leashed dogs are welcome!
