Our Adventure Guides



Co-Founder, Adventure Guide, Operations Director

Hello, I’m Tessa! Born and raised in the Greater Boston area, I spent a lot of time as a kid trying to train my English Bulldog to run through agility courses I would set up. Needless to say, it did not go very well. I’ve spent the last seven years working with dogs in a myriad of ways: as a volunteer at local shelters, as a dog walker and hiker, and now working to become a trainer.


One of my favorite things about working with pups is seeing how they grow over time. I love finding out what they are passionate about, whether that’s hiking, swimming, trick-work or snacks. I’m passionate about force-free and positive reinforcement care for your pups and cannot wait to start working with them!

Hi, I’m Anne, and I’ve been hanging out and working with dogs since I was a wee pup myself! I have over 3 years experience working as a dog walker and off-leash hiker in the area, and a year interning at a local dog training club. Dogs have such a special place in our lives and hearts, and they deserve to lead happy and fulfilling lives just like any of us. Being a part of giving many different pups the lives they deserve brings me great joy.

I also believe that workers deserve dignity, happiness, and power in their workplaces. That's why I co-founded Adventure Pups Cooperative; to give people who love dogs as much as me a dignified workplace, so they can give their all to the pups.

Co-Founder, Adventure Guide, Training Director

Hello hello, I’m Angie! I was always a dog-loving kid, but my dog journey didn't truly begin until I started volunteering for a dog rescue/foster group back in 2011, and became lead volunteer in 2013. During this time, I developed a passion for teaching people about dogs' individual needs. I became a dog trainer in 2014, and then began dog walking began in 2017. I was bit by the walker bug, and found my dream job. I love spending the day exploring Greater Boston with my client pups, rain or shine! Working as a dog trainer is my passion; I love helping people better understand their dog's individual needs, and seeing their relationships develop and grow.

This is the job I've wanted since childhood. That's why I was excited to be a part of the founding team for Adventure Pups. I want to be part of a business that functions on the idea that in order for it to thrive, its workers deserve all the support to thrive themselves.
