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!

I have always been an animal lover (I even celebrated one of my birthdays at an SPCA and asked guests to bring donations for the animals!) and have had many experiences with dogs throughout my time in college. Between dog sitting and walking for a variety of people and dogs, I know that I am committed and excited to look after your four-legged friend. I understand that even though dogs may sometimes have a mind of their own, it is important that they are always be treated with respect.

Dog Walking in Northwood

Northwood is a small town in the southeast portion of New Hampshire. Once a center for sawmills and shoe manufacturing, it is currently a popular vacation spot because of its natural environment which comprises of 9 lakes. Fishing, biking, walking and hiking, as well as winter sports, bring tourists year round, and their dogs are welcome to come with them, on-leash.

This park features vast wetlands with numerous waterfowl and moose, and forested tracts that are home to large and small mammals and birds. The park also contains 8 easily accessible trails that total approximately 12 miles and are perfect for biking, hiking, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing, all with your fur-buddy in tow. There is even a pond, formed by a dammed stream, that offers fishing and non-motorized boating for you and Fido to enjoy together.

Saddleback Mountain is in Northwood as well. This 1,150-ft mountain provides dog-friendly hiking trails that circle the lower portion of the mountain and climb to the vista. This is not considered a very challenging mountain-climbing experience, more like a strenuous walk, which is perfect for a leisurely afternoon for you and your furry friend.

Just a few miles east of Durham is the town of Dover, and home to the Dover Community Trail. Built upon an old railroad line, the trail is flat and easy for a stroll with Fido. It has 4 sections, and is open year-round. Pups must be leashed on the 3.8-mile trail, which begins at Fisher St and ends at Watson Rd. With an asphalt and crushed stone surface, it’s possible to bike, skate, walk, or cross-country ski. As the trail heads north from Fisher Street, it passes the Dover Cassily Community Garden, a peaceful place where you and Fido can watch the progress of the vegetables planted there in the summer months.
