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!

Dog Walking in Salem

Salem is a beautiful New Hampshire town speckled with lakes, streams, and wetlands. Nestled in Rockingham County, its history dates clear back to 1741 when it was an early settlement known as North Parish. Today, Salem is known for its business friendly environment, easy access to Boston, and abundance of natural resources. Local pups also love the area’s outdoor recreational opportunities. 

When visiting this town, treat your pooch to a walk in the Salem Town Forest. Let your pal guide the way as you discover the network of trails. You’ll pass through wetlands and walk alongside the Hitytity Brook. There are also a couple informal trails on the map, so your pup can be bold and explore off the beaten path. Bring bug spray, as word on the street is that the mosquito population thrives in this neck of the woods.

If Salem is just a stop on your journey, make a reservation at one of the pet friendly hotels in town. Your pal can drift off to dreamland in a comfy room at La Quinta Inn and Suites. For no additional fee, two pets of any size are welcome to stay at this hotel. If you have a smaller pup, Red Roof Inn is another option. Two pups up to 35 pounds can bunk here for no additional fee. That’s a puptastic deal!

Looking for a great place to walk your furry BFF? Clip on his leash and head over to the Windham Rail Trail. Once a rail corridor, this four mile trail has been used by cyclists and pedestrians for the past 20 years. Not only will your pal get some much needed exercise, he’ll also get a fill of beautiful scenery. The trail heads north through the neighboring town of Windham and passes through a couple pond marshes. It is mostly shaded by woods and also crosses over three bridges. This area is also home to a number of creatures, so watch for beaver, deer, owls, and turtles. Keep your pup leashed throughout the area.

Bockes-Ingersoll Memorial Forest is just a quick 10 mile drive from Salem. Located in Londonderry, this 225 acre property is a perfect place to bring your four legged walking buddy. Your pooch can fill her lungs with fresh air while hanging out in this delightful setting. Old logging roads weave in and out of forests of oak, pine, witch hazel, and hemlock. You’ll also come across a grassy meadow with open views of the area. Spur trails wander off the main path, so feel free to venture off into the unknown. Catch your breath at the Beaver Brook Overlook before heading back.

If your pooch needs to expend some pent up energy, take a trip to the Derry Dog Park. Located only 10 miles north in Derry, this off leash dog park gives your pal a chance to ditch the leash and run wild. She can romp around with new playmates, or just sniff around solo. If she’s up for a challenge, she can try out the agility equipment. There are also tunnels and small swimming pools for wading. Pet parents can watch their fur babies from the gazebo or benches. Fresh water is available, so make sure your pal takes plenty of water breaks.

If your four legged pal is begging for a walk, clip on her leash and pay a visit to the Derry Town Forest. Just a 20 minute drive north of Salem, this natural space is a great spot for some doggy cardio. The property spans 30 acres and is chock full of hardwood trees. Trails also lead through some scenic wetlands. The Rockingham Recreation Trail is also in the area. This 25 mile trail is a southern New Hampshire favorite.

Treat your dog to an afternoon walk in the Albert W. Doolittle Conservation Area. This wooded area is located 12 miles north of Salem in Derry. It covers over 90 acres, so your pooch will have plenty of room for exploring. Since there are several hiking trails that wind through wetlands and forests, your furry friend will get to enjoy a variety of scenery. Your pup can wander through the pine, oak, and hickory in search of the perfect stick, or dip his paws in Manter Brook. Be sure to bring some water, as all that hiking is sure to make your four legged hiking buddy thirsty.
