Gone With The Dogs is committed to providing top of the line care for your dogs. As dog owners ourselves, we know how important it is to know that your dog is being properly exercised and loved. We know how difficult it can be to find someone that is trustworthy and reliable. Our clients become part of our extended family and we are proud of the dog community that we have built.

We walk. We hike. We pet sit.
Cami joined GWTD in 2007 as a part time dog walker. She was a professional photographer mainly working with dogs and decided dog walking would be a fun way to get some exercise and meet some new supermodels (of the canine variety!) She quickly fell in love with the job and became the owner of the business in 2008. She thinks it's the best job in the world and her 3 live-in assistants (Gromit, Finn, and McQueen) totally agree.
Amy joined GWTD in 2011. She loves hiking with her canine pals and has been known to follow them into the water for a swim and wrestle with the "goofy newfies." We think she might be part dog (still awaiting the DNA test results.) When she's not walking and hiking the GWTD dogs, she's tending to the zoo that she lives with: a dog named Moe, a cat named Kitman, a guinea pig named Oreo, a lionhead rabbit named Naula, and a hermit crab named Dr. Sheldon Lee Cooper (Shelly for short).
Cheryl joined GWTD in 2010, she's our most veteran walker and we have it in writing that she will never ever quit. Cheryl is also a massage therapist, for humans AND for dogs. The GWTD pups are often taking advantage of Cheryl's techniques after walks. Cheryl lives with a big goofy German Shepherd named Merlin.
Zoe joined GWTD in 2010 while she was a graduate student. She thought it would just be a part time job that she'd keep while she was in school. Silly Zoe. She fell in love with the dogs and the job and has been working for us ever since. Even now, with a full time job as a social worker, she fills in whenever we need her (or whenever she needs her "dog fix").
Jen joined GWTD in 2014. She was raised by wolves. Actually, wait, that's not right. She studied wolves in college at a wolf sanctuary. Foxes, too! She's our animal behavior expert, which definitely comes in handy. She lives with a cool cat named Haiku.
Sophie joined GWTD in 2015. She's our newest walker but she fit in with our team right away and has been getting rave reviews from our furry friends. She has a wide range of animal experience as she grew up on a farm with horses, goats, pigs, cats, and Bernese Mountain dogs. She currently lives with a kitten named Shadow.

On our leash walks, your dog will be walked with no more than 2 other dogs at a time. We feel that any more dogs than this makes the walk less productive and can be dangerous.
We also offer solo leash walks if your dog has any special needs (e.g. dog aggression, medical issues, etc.). And puppy walks, where we'll take your new puppy on two 20 minute walks per day.
Our field trips take place at the Fells, located in Medford. Field trip dogs are carefully assessed for their recall ability before going off-leash. Our field trips are limited to 5 dogs at a time and we take great care in introducing new dogs to the "pack" so as to ensure good relationships during field trip time. These trips are a fantastic way to get your pup exhausted as well as socialized!
Dog sitting can take place either in your home, or at one of our homes. Included in the nightly rate are all walks, feedings, belly rubs, etc. We do not charge extra for anything. Unless it's discouraged at your own home, your pups will get all of the luxuries they are accustomed to (sleeping in bed, couch potato time, long weekend walks, etc.).
We love cats too! We'll feed them, play with them, give them any medications needed and scoop the poop.
