About Us

Our Mission

We started Bark Around Boston in 2012 and our mission and goal has always stayed the same: take care of our client’s pets like they’re our own. And that means coming to you and your home for more than just a 30-minute visit or to feed them. We routinely walk, play and train your pet to make sure that they’re not just getting love, but they’re also getting some just deserved exercise and socialization. We like to say, a tired dog is a happy dog and a happy owner.

Owner and Canine Educator

It’s always been dogs with some donuts and a smaller side of dinosaurs. Everyday Danielle wakes up in a real-life dream, making a living working with dogs. It has been quite an adventure since starting Bark Around Boston and she is grateful for all the people she has met and the many opportunities it has presented.

Anna Z.

Charlestown Proper Lead Walker

AnnA joined the Bark Around Boston team in early 2016. She likes to say she was “rescued” from a cashier job at Whole Foods. When not trotting all over Charlestown with her dog walking appointments, she is an accomplished musician. Violin? Sing? Compose? Improvise? AnnA can do it all. While the idea of a desk job mortifies her, she is happy to be on her walking feet and embracing her animal pals. Look for her dog:music compositions on the Bark Around Boston Facebook page.

Playgroup Educator

A caretaker by nature, Dennise has dedicated her life to compassionate care for animals. Her career started about 8 years ago, working as a veterinary technician. It was an easy transition combining her love for dogs and the outdoors when she joined Bark Around Boston. A Boston native, Dennise enjoys hiking with her dogs, travel to exotic destinations and both cooking and eating. When not chasing around her human child or 4 legged kiddos, she is taking the best photographs of the pets in her care.

Walker and Senior Dog Liaison

Carrie’s transition to dog walking was motivated by her desire to be outside more and she brought along her specialized skills as a veterinary technician. When not at work, her dog Bart, is on the other end of the leash. If she’s not soaking up all nature has to offer, she can be caught listening to podcasts while perfecting her embroidery game.
