I love all animals, and have owned and dog-sat a variety of dogs throughout my life. I have 2 rescue dogs, Indiana Jones and Matheson, and get great joy out of spending time with them and watching other dogs, too. I know how important exercise is in a dogs life, and how important convenience is to dog parents. I'd like to be able to help solve both of these things by being available as a walker for dogs of all sizes, breeds, and activity levels - to put some fun and movement into their day!

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 Rye

The town of Rye is a popular place in the summer and fall, thanks to the color-changing leaves and largest coastal shoreline of any town in New Hampshire. Tourists, residents, and outdoor lovers love this small town, thanks to the mixture of beach, preserved wetlands, and mountains to the west. Dogs that come to this town are well taken care of with three veterinarians located here.

The Jenness Beach is a dog-friendly beach in Rye, especially in the winter. Dogs are welcome anytime in the winter to socialize, play, or just run around freely, and can normally find 20 to 30 fellow pups there on the weekend. Dogs must remain on a leash, and during the summer hours, pups can only come before 9 AM and after 7 PM. Don't forget to bring water and clean-up bags!

The Rye Recreational Area is the best place to bring Fido if you don't want to be cleaning sand out of his fur for hours after your adventure. The area has huge areas of open space, with green grass, paved trails, and thick forests that surround the park, offering nature trails that wind through it. There's lots of parking for you and your leashed pup, with amenities like water fountains, clean-up stations, benches, picnic areas, and nighttime lights.

Sandy beaches, preserved marshland, and a beautiful park? What more could Fido want in the gorgeous coastal town of Rye?
