Hi! My name is Perri, and I've been living in Boston for the past 7 years. Growing up, I had 2 chocolate labradors, Bubba and Dudley, who I cared for and followed me all around the neighborhood making friends. In my adult life, I've cared for/trained pets for friends and roommates including a pitbull puppy named Paisley, an English bulldog puppy named Jasper, and a Yorkshire Terrier named Tammy. I currently have a mixed breed rescue dog named Kane. He has opened up to me and become super sweet to people in the time that I've had him. I like dogs of all shapes and sizes, and I have the patience, temperament, and experience to handle many different breeds. I can't wait to meet your pup too!

Dog Walking in Foster

Rich in history and family-friendly, the town of Foster, RI sits on the Connecticut border just 22 miles from Providence. Settled in the 1700s, Foster is home to the oldest government meeting house in the entire United States. There’s a spookier side to the town’s history, though -- the Hopkins Mill Historic District is said to be haunted by the ghost of Dolly Cole, a local witch killed by superstitious townsfolk. Folks say her spirit  floats above Foster’s waterways by night, but don’t worry -- most visitors seem able to explore the remains of this old colonial town undisturbed by apparitions! Ghost sightings aside, today, Foster is known as a small, peaceful town, possessing a sense of civic pride showcased by the many community events that take place throughout the year.

Foster doesn’t have its own dog park, but you and your pooch won’t have too "ruff" a time finding exercise options!  Little Rhody Vista Park is a lovely little spot for a leashed walk. Visit in the summer and you two might even be able to catch an open air concert. The town is also close to some fantastically fur-friendly hiking trails, with some splendid scenery to sweeten the deal.

And don’t worry; you’ll find plenty of scope for off-leash adventures just a short drive away!

If your pooch loves hiking, you’d need to be barking mad not to bring them to the Hayfield Foster Land Trust! Right on the eastern border of Foster itself, this gorgeous, wooded property is a perfect place for you two to stretch all six of your legs. Fitter furry friends might like to try their luck on the Chipmunk Trail, a two-mile loop with some steep sections. Less athletic animals needn’t be left out, though -- both the Pasture Trail and the Hayfield Trail are very easily walkable, and the latter will bring you straight to the historic mill site.

Pups and owners looking for a more sedate stroll might enjoy a trip to Barden Reservoir. Barden still provides water for the larger Providence Metropolitan area, so you won’t be able to walk right up to it. Fur-tunately, though, the trails around the reservoir are open to hikers and their canine companions! The trails are wooded and mostly flat, but there are still some vantage points where observers can catch a glimpse of Barden’s magnificent man-made waterfalls. Ghost hunters and history buffs might also get a kick out of exploring the spacious, abandoned cemeteries along the route!

If you and your best friend are looking for something different to do, why not take a drive to North Smithfield and catch a movie? The furrific Rustic Tri-View Drive-In shows regular double features throughout months of April to November. Four-legged film buffs are welcome to join, as long as they’re leashed.  Your buddy won’t be able to join you at the snack bar, unfortunately, but they might perk up when they see you coming back with the Rustic’s special doggy sundae! There are plenty of trash cans on-site, but bring your own bags.

You’ll need to cross the state line to Connecticut get to the closest place you can let your furry friend run free, but once your pooch is let loose in Putnam Lions Memorial Dog Park, you two might decide the nine-mile trip was worth it! This pawesome park may not be the biggest in the area, but there’s still plenty of space for a spirited game of catch. There’s a separate small dog area, plenty of shade, and benches and bags are provided, but you will need to bring your own water. Afterwards, you two can chow down at Jessica Tuesday’s, a local favorite with an excellent sandwich menu.

Make no bones about it -- your furball will love a trip to Dexter’s Dog Park in Providence’s Federal Hill! The park is a little bigger than the one in Putnam, making it an excellent option for larger pups or those who need a bit more room to run around. Like the Putnam park, Dexter’s Dog Park has a separate small area -- however, there’s not a lot of shade, so you might want to give this one a miss on a hot summer’s day. After your workout, consider stopping in at Hudson’s Street Deli. This Federal Hill gem does some of the best breakfast bagels in town, and caters to canine customers outside.
