Neighborhood Paws

Services & Rates

The Neighborhood Paws Crew is on the move weekly bouncing around Somerville, Cambridge, and surrounding areas. Check out our list of services to see what we have to offer!


Dog Walking & Potty Breaks

Neighborhood walks are completed daily with groups of 2-3 dogs per handler. The small group walks help dogs develop strong relationships with their walkers, and allow for the proper use of positive training techniques in a more relaxed setting.
Potty breaks are also available for puppies and senior dogs.

*please note that we currently do not have space for solo walks at this time*

  • 15-20 min potty break (for puppies under 6 mo. & senior dogs) - $17
  • 30 min walk - $22
  • 45 min walk - $27

each additional pet per household: $10/12/15



The core of our business, playgroups are a wonderful way for your dog to get exercise and socialize with other dogs in town. Groups are taken to various dog parks in the area.

  • 60 min playgroups - $27

each additional pet per household: $15


Hiking & Scenic Walks

For dogs who need a bit more stimulation and personal attention, hikes and scenic walks are available to dogs who have a strong "recall" and are able to comfortably use a long-line or run off-leash. We frequent locations such as the Middlesex Fells, Arlington's Great Meadow, and the Mystic Lakes recreational areas.

*please note that an additional travel cost is included in the fee for hikes/scenic walks*

  • 60 min hikes/scenic walks - $32

each additional pet per household: $15

*per contract―clients are required to book a minimum of 2 outings per week in order to reserve services.  Thank you!*


Pet Sitting & Boarding


Pet Sitting

Neighborhood Paws loves cats, too!  While our main focus is on dogs, we offer pet sitting services for all of our feline friends. With trained medical professionals on staff, we are confident that your cat will receive the very best care possible!
Our sitting services include, but aren't limited to:

  • feeding/fresh water change
  • litter box cleaning
  • light brushing (if requested)
  • socialization/playtime

*please note that there is an additional fee of $5 for medicine administration*

  • 1 cat - $25
  • 2+ cats - $30

in-home Boarding (dogs only)

*All boarding services are only available to CURRENT DOG WALKING CLIENTS at this time--NO exceptions*

Need to get away for a few days or more? We've got you covered!
Neighborhood Paws offers in-home boarding for dogs while their owners are out of town on a first come, first served basis. We're here to grant you peace of mind knowing that your dog will be safe and sound in our care!

While we do prefer to stay at your place to keep the dog at ease, we are more than happy to welcome your pup into our own homes should they feel comfortable with the change of scenery.  If staying in our homes, dogs must be fully house-broken, free from destructive behavior (chewing furniture/personal items), and comfortable around other pets (should the sitter have any). Our homes are typically crate-free, so we do ask that owners provide a crate as needed.

For more information on boarding services, please feel free to contact us via our contact page!

*Please note that there is an additional fee of $5 for all holiday sitting/boarding visits*
