Hello! I’m Katherine. I live a transient life working on various boats around the country and as such can’t have a furry friend of my own. I’d love to walk your dogs and share some special moments together when I’m not at sea! I do move around a lot, so I probably won’t be available for long-term repeat bookings.

“Responsible animal caregiver”

I am an avid animal lover, and have owned dogs, cats, and horses myself. My most recent dog was a chihuahua-pug-cocker spaniel mix who loved everyone. I have both walked dogs for friends as well as house sat for dogs, cats, and horses. Animals have always approached me, feeling comfortable with my easy attitude.

Dog Walking in Charlestown

Come down by the sea to enjoy the perfect balance of things to do and time with nature in Charlestown, RI. Dogs love being wherever their humans are, but they also love to step out of the city and get back to their natural roots. Charlestown balances a canine-focused community with great access to nature. There are three veterinary clinics in town and plenty of room to roam. Head to Ninigret National Wildlife Area to appreciate the natural beauty that Charlestown commands.


Your dog will want to “sit and stay!” at K & S Pizza & Restaurant. They serve up locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, and have outdoor tables where dogs love to “lay down!” Grab a slice from a variety of original combinations or make your own trademark pizza.


East Beach State Beach is a great place to walk the sands with your dog. Dogs have to be on leash and outside of main tourist season (typically October 1st to March 31st is the right time to go). Get a great view and relax! If your pet loves to ruff it, stay at Burlingame State Campground! Dogs can camp in the RV or tent spaces provided they’re on leash outside the camp site.

The Ninigret Dog Park inside Ninigret Park is the local meeting place for Charlestown canines where dogs of all sizes gather to romp, play and let loose. Also called the Charlestown Dog Park, it has an acre for large dogs, and half an acre for small pups.  Dogs can sniff around and explore the trees, grass and rocks or hang out by the fire hydrant. Your furry friend won’t want to miss out on the action, so bring her over today.  Burlingame State Park is nearby and surrounds the Watchaug Pond. The park also features over 700 rustic pet friendly campsites and plenty of trails to explore. Keep in mind dogs must be kept on leash when in this park.

Take your four legged buddy over to Pasquiset Pond Preserve for some outdoor fun. Your pup will love spending some quality time with you as your wander through this stunning space.  You have the choice of two trails; the shorter one leads through a grove of large white pines. The longer one guides you through the wetlands and around some ponds. Both may lead you to plenty of native birds to keep your dog’s attention. Also watch for dragonflies and damselflies that live in the area. Bring a leash, since dogs must be tethered at all times. There’s no question about it, your furry pal will have a woofin’ good time!

Just ten miles northeast of Charlestown is the Great Swamp Management Area. Located in West Kingston, this outdoor paradise provides over 3,000 acres of natural beauty and sits next to Worden Pond. Leash up your pup and venture out into the network of trails. You’ll pass through wetlands, woodlands and meadows. Your pup will be captivated by all the wild sounds and smells. A variety of waterfowl inhabit the area, so chances are her ears and nose will be busy.  The trail runs about four miles, so your canine companion will be tuckered out by the time you get home. Be sure to bring her some water.

Leash up your pup and head over to the Carolina Management Area for some good old fashioned outdoor fun. It’s located in Wyoming, just 10 miles outside of Charlestown. Your pooch will thank you for an afternoon spent in such a beautiful setting. Carolina Management Area covers over 2,000 acres and is made up of evergreen and deciduous forest as well as open fields. Let your pup be the guide as you head out into the woods. You may catch a glimpse of a rabbit, squirrel or fox. Keep your pup on his leash since he may be tempted to chase the wildlife.
