Dog Walking

Dogs Allowed Back in the Park

The Barrington dog park is open again! We humans still need to be careful to keep our distance from each other. The dogs are enjoying being able to run and play off leash. Here are Mochi (on the left, with low bow and high tail) and Dudley, happy to be reunited in one of their favorite places.

If you need your dog exercising, with a walk, a trip to the dog park, or otherwise, I’d be delighted to help! Don’t hesitate to contact me.

I hope that all, humans and dogs alike, are staying healthy and safe.

Canine Clients: Lovely Local Labs

Labs are understandably popular dogs, so it’s not surprising that two of my first dog walking clients are labs. They are both lovely, and within walking distance of my house, but they are very different.

Lily is a laid-back lab, although she now gets excited when I arrive, because she knows it’s walk time. Our first walk together was just the two of us, and included a visit to a local beach.

Over the next couple of days, she got to know Mochi. Mature (five years old) Lily was very patient with the lively puppy (nine months old) Mochi.

Luna and Mochi had met before, are about the same age, and so immediately started playing vigorously. Then they took a rest together, giving me a chance to take a photo that wasn’t just blurred fur.

So it was a good week for dog walking – and for alliteration. I hope that you enjoyed this account of Lily and Luna, the lovely local labs!

Dog Walking: Webbed Dog and Before

Webbed Dog is my first dog walking business, but it’s far from my first dog walking. Here’s some of my doggy history.

When at graduate school at UMass Amherst, bike rides used to include a count of dogs encountered. A dog/mile ratio greater than one was one benchmark for a good ride.

When I lived and taught in Boston, I was great friends with a Rottweiler. I often walked him, and he stayed with me when his human was away.

When in Bethesda, Maryland, I did some independent dog walking.

Since moving to Barrington, Rhode Island, I’ve done some dog walking through Wag! I feel positive about Wag! But it’s not for me as a dog walker, and it wouldn’t be for me as a dog parent.

My love for dogs has only increased since Mochi joined the family. I look forward to getting to know your dog(s)!

Dog Walking in Barrington

Where would I walk your dog? The simplest answer, and the best answer in many cases is: on quiet streets near your home.

There are many other possibilities. That’s one of the many great things about Barrington. We can discuss what’s appropriate for your dog.

For some dogs, the best exercise is off-leash, and with other dogs. In this case, we will consider the Barrington Dog Park. I take Mochi there most days, and we love the space and the community of dogs and their people.
