My name is Taylor and I am 19 years old. I attend Mount Ida College. I was originally a Vet-Tech major, but I recently switched to Business Administration. I’ve grown up around animals, especially dogs. I have three dogs at home, a beagle, a corgi, and a Bernese Mountain dog as well as a Holland Lop Bunny. Our corgi is an epileptic, so we have to take special precautions to make sure he is happy and healthy. I’d love to help families who are at home to let their dogs out or walk them so that their dogs can stay happy and healthy as well. I have a passion for animals And being around them brings me joy.

Dog Walking in Wakefield

Wakefield is a village within the town of South Kingstown on the Saugatucket River. Its main industry is the manufacture of textiles, but it is also known as a retail shopper’s haven in this part of Rhode Island. Many of its buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places as well, and visitors flock to these and to the many parks and refuges surrounding Wakefield.

Wakefield is the beneficiary of several areas of dog-friendly walking and water trails associated with the Saugatucket River. One of these is the Riverwalk Trail that is about a half-mile long and begins at Main Street in Wakefield, following the river along a boardwalk to a dam and waterfall. Crossing the river, you can amble up to Saugatucket Park on High Street and along a paved path to Sari’s Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is a covered wooden dock where you can hang out for a bit and enjoy the river flowing gently by. From here, it’s a quick stroll back across the river on a wooden foot bridge to the parking lot.

If your fur-baby should become ill or injured during your time in Wakefield, be aware that there are at least 5 veterinarians and animal hospitals in town, and several others in South Kingstown. They and their staff are ready and able to get Fido up and wagging again in no time!

So take a trip to pawsome Wakefeld today!

The South Kingstown Dog Park in Wakefield is a lovely, grassy place to exercise your fur-pup and allow him to meet some other dogs to play with. It is divided into separate areas for large and small dogs, and the area around the gates is supplied with waste bags and surfaced with sand to catch possible excitable leaks and squirts. There are water bowls and toys for those pups who didn’t bring any, and the gates are double-entry for the pooches’ safety. The dog park is nestled next to Abbie Perry Park, which is equipped with playground equipment and athletic fields/ courts for the family. Come on over, and bring Fido for some play and a picnic. It’s pawrrific!

This neighborhood is home to the dog-friendly Tuckertown Park, a large community park that features athletic facilities and a playground along with a picnic shelter equipped with a grill and tables. Located adjacent to Tucker Pond, the park also provides access to fishing and water sports. But best of all, in Fido’s opinion, is the nature trail. This easy, 1-mile trail is perfect for a gentle stroll to view the beautiful rhododendron planted alongside the mulched path, and watch the many birds flit from bush to tree and back. Wooded swampland makes up part of the trail and in spring is populated by peepers, followed by frogs in the summer. The pond comes into view as you near the picnic shelter. This is a quiet, pleasant respite for whatever your day has handed you, so enjoy this woofderful walk!

The Peace Dale neighborhood in South Kingstown is the place to go with your furry friend if you’re looking for some casual dining and craft beers. This is where you’ll find Whaler’s Brewing Company, a locally owned brewery. Whaler’s doesn’t serve food because they’re totally passionate about beer, but they encourage BYOF (Bring Your Own Food) and /or food to be delivered to the brewery from any number of nearby restaurants whose fare will complement their brew. Your fur-buddy is welcome to join you in the taproom on a leash. Share your food with him, but not your beer! Furrific!

This neighborhood in North Kingstown features the Compass Rose Beach, a dog-friendly piece of seaside where your fur-pup can join you on leash. This small, secluded beach allows dogs year-round and at any time of day. It offers free parking, and there is a picnic area if you don’t want to eat your sandwich with a side of sand. It’s surrounded by grassy dunes which are good places to take a stroll with Fido after lunch, and the sand is clean and plentiful with no rocks! The beach is near Quonsett Point Naval Air Station, so you will also be treated to some landings and take-offs from time to time to make your beach experience a little more interesting. Woof!

This neighborhood in North Kingstown is home to the leashed-dog-friendly John H Chafee Nature Preserve, which features an easy, looped trail of about 3 miles that will please you and your fur-buddy. The terminus is at Rome Point, where you will likely see seals between October and May. To get there from the beach part of the trail, you’ll pass through a cedar grove that affords water views, and the return loop passes through marshlands and an old farm. In some places the path is narrow with bushes close by on either side, so be sure to take the flea and tick spray! This is a lovely gem of a walk without much effort, so bring your buddy for a couple hours of pawsome walking and wildlife-watching!
