Dudley Square is on the south side of Boston, Massachusetts. It is bordered by Lower Roxbury to the north, Washington Park to the west, and Dudley Brunswick King to the east. This is a primarily residential area with small businesses and restaurants at the perimeters along Blue Hill Avenue and Warren Street. There are several businesses in this area that will cater to your dog. Dot Dogs offers great grooming for your pup with convenient parking nearby and good pricing while the Polka Dog Bakery offers handcrafted natural treats and foods for your pooch! Towards the Charles River, the Pawsh Dog Boutique sells all of the cute accessories that you could possibly need to have your dog looking stylish.
This residential neighborhood has access to lots of local parks and natural areas and is not far from the water and all of the little islands and interesting places to explore around Quincy Bay.
Many homes within Dudley Square are historic and there is a timeless feel as you walk through these flat neighborhood streets. Most homes have balconies and terraces and it is common to see bay windows and other beautiful architectural details. Homes are generally spaced flush together or very near each other and front yards are small if present at all. Lots of mature tree cover and attractive landscaping in the little yards make this a pleasant walk even through the bumpier areas of the neighborhood, but the relatively narrow sidewalk means that you will walk your dog close to your side as you peruse the area's amenities.
For a break from the city streets, you have only a couple blocks south to go from the border of Dudley Square to find the extensive natural forest around the Franklin Park Zoo and the lovely natural areas around Mass Audubon's Boston Nature Center.
