Services

Dog Walking

We offer several walking services to meet the needs of you and your dog. Please call or email us to schedule an at-home consultation to get acquainted and to discuss the unique needs of your faithful friend.

The Newton Dog Walk

Your dog is taken for refreshing walk in its own neighborhood or brought to a local dog-friendly park. Walks are done individually or in a small group of up to 3 dogs. This allows us to lavish personal attention on your dog and reinforce basic obedience commands. The rate is for a single dog and includes checking water, feeding (if necessary), pick-up & drop-off and leaving a personal note after each visit.

$23 (30 minutes) / $35 (60 minutes)

The Adventure Walk

Your dog is brought to an area state park or conservation land for a guided off-leash run with other athletic dogs. Your dog will explore open fields, streams and wooded areas while actively socializing and receiving excellent exercise. Before attending, dogs must participate in at least one playgroup session to assess social skills and demonstrate the ability to respond to commands. A daily adventure walk will give your dog exactly what it needs: wholesome exercise, active exploration, and membership in a very special pack.

$35 (approximately 2 hours)
Playgroups

Our most popular service. Your dog is picked-up at your home and brought to a large, fenced-in yard and allowed to play with other dogs his or her own size and temperament.

Daily Playgroup

Dogs are encouraged to run, romp, chase balls, play fetch and interact with each other. A staff member trained to facilitate safe and effective socialization constantly supervises each playgroup to ensure that play doesn't get too rough and to reinforce basic obedience commands. You will be amazed at how calm and relaxed your dog will be after each session. Although ideal for puppies and young dogs, a daily playgroup is also well suited for an adult dog that needs more exercise and mental stimulation than a walk can provide. Playgroup is an excellent way for your dog to receive healthy outdoor exercise while also building and strengthening the important social skills that will guide them for a lifetime.

About Newton Dog

Corbin Kohn founded Newton Dog Walking Service in Autumn 2002. A native of Massachusetts, Corbin spent the previous 15 years living and working in Boston. After graduating from Boston University, Corbin spent 8 years as a financial consultant with various Wall Street firms then 3 years as a project manager for two Internet-based technology companies.

Shortly after bringing home Daisy, an adorable and energetic chocolate Labrador retriever puppy, Corbin realized he really enjoyed her daily exercise in the form of long walks, soccer, swimming, socialization with other dogs, and of course, playing fetch. A neighbor saw what fun they were having and asked Corbin to look after her own puppy while she worked. Other neighbors were so inspired by the interaction between Corbin and Daisy that they brought home their own puppy to join the fun. Being a entrepreneur at heart, Corbin realized he could-and should-provide this service to other dogs in Newton. Thus, Newton Dog Walking was born. Newton Dog Walking was founded to provide high-quality, personalized care for dogs and puppies. We build deep-rooted personal relationships with your dog through daily exercise, personal interaction, and affection.
