Welcome, dog owners!

Penny's Dog Walking started in 2008 as a small, solo dog walking business, helping out with some new puppies while their owners were at work. Word spread, and in order to keep saying "yes" to more families and their dogs, Penny recruited friends to help and the business quickly grew into the largest dog walking service based in Melrose, with thirteen employees and over 200 walks each week.

After fifteen years in business, Penny has scaled back and decided to return to working solo. She continues to provide the same honest, reliable, conscientious service - and still loves working with her dogs and families!

Penny's Dog Walking has experience with a wide variety of dog breeds and sizes, as well as experience with puppies. Dogs are walked individually, or in groups of two or three, depending upon dog chemistry and location. Your pet's safety is the highest priority!

In addition to enhancing the health and well being of your dog, hiring a dog walker has other benefits!

Someone regularly coming into your home during the hours you are away helps to keep your home safe. Having extra eyes and ears in your neighborhood to notice when anything is amiss helps to make your community a safer place to live.

Having someone who will clean up the overflowing crockpot on your counter, bring your packages inside when it's raining, and someone you can call to rescue you when you've locked yourself out of your house are all ways Penny's Dog Walking can help you rest easier. You're covered!

As a Melrose resident, I love the feeling of community this job brings. I am helping friends and neighbors with their dogs, and really enjoy the relationships I form with my dog families. This is a special kind of job and I feel lucky to be a part of so many lives.

Give a call today to check on availability,

and start improving your dog's quality of life - and your own! 

Penny's Dog Walking is a dog walking service based in Melrose, Massachusetts, committed to providing reliable, caring, all-weather service at a reasonable price.
