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 Johnston

Johnston, Rhode Island is a town located about seven miles west of the state’s capital city, Providence. Named for the colonial attorney general, Augustus Johnston, the area is known for its rich history. The town was founded way back in 1759 after it separated from Providence to become its own town. Also of note are a few famous celebrities that call Johnston their hometown. Paul DelVecchio, perhaps better known to you as Pauly D, from the MTV show Jersey Shore is from Johnston. Noel Acciari, a player for the NHL’s Boston Bruins, is also from the town.

While there’s plenty for people to do and see in Johnston, there isn’t much for your four-legged canine companions. If you’re looking for something fun to do with your dog, your best bet is to head to Providence. There, you can find several restaurants that will welcome your dog. There are also a few dog parks in the city. Johnston does have one veterinarian clinic, and not too far outside of the city is a twenty-four hour animal hospital in case of emergencies. Make sure to check out Johnston, as there’s always something to do within just a few miles!

About five miles from Johnston is Providence’s Federal Hill neighborhood, and if you’re looking for the closest dog park to Johnston, you can find it here! Dexter Dog Park, located within Dexter Training grounds, is a fenced-in, off-leash dog park where your pooch will have plenty of room to run around. Give your dog the chance to socialize with other canines; it’s important to his development. Dexter Dog Park doesn’t provide waste disposal bags, so make sure to bring along your own. Bring a ball or two and have a ball!

While quite a few neighborhoods in Johnston’s neighbor, Providence, have dog-friendly restaurants, Hope is full of them! If you’re hungry for something new and exciting, check out Chez Pascal! This French restaurant serves up delicious French classics alongside modern takes on French dishes. Bone Appetit! Your dog can join you on the patio, but outdoor seating is limited. If you’re feeling more in the mood for French fries than French cuisine, check out The Sandwich Hut, which dishes up delicious deli food. Your dog must be on a leash at all times, and good behavior is required.

Don’t let the fact that this dog park is located out of state fool you; it’s only a twenty-minute drive from Johnston, and your pup will definitely thank you for making the trip! Attleboro Dog Park is known for its size. There’s plenty of room for your pup to run around and get his exercise. There are two separate areas of this park, based on dog sizes, but many locals tend to let the dogs intermingle. Make sure to keep a close eye on your dog when this happens, just to be safe. Water and waste disposal bags aren’t provided, and you’ll need your dog’s license number to sign in. This is strictly enforced.

About twenty minutes from Johnston, you and your pup can have a great time exploring Lincoln Woods State Park. Located in Lincoln, this state park has plenty of trails you and your dog can explore. Make sure to stay off trails that are designated for only mountain bikers or horse riders, though. Your dog must be on a leash, one no longer than six feet, at all times, and although it might be tempting to let him run free, there is wildlife in this area. It’s best to just keep him nearby. Make sure to bring along water and waste disposal bags. You can also enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the shelters!

If your dog loves socializing, make sure to take him to Pawtucket Dog Park, which is just about twenty minutes up the road from Johnston. With separate areas for large and small dogs, your pooch can have the chance to interact with dogs he can safely play with, putting both you and him at ease. Water is provided to make sure your pawesome friend doesn’t get overheated while playing, but you’ll want to bring your own waste disposal bags. This is an off-leash dog park. Some breed restrictions apply; you can call the local parks and recreation department if you have any questions.
