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 4 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.

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.
Oh hey! My name is Matt and I’ve been running with one pack of pups or another since I was a kid. I have worked with dogs in various settings, from daycare to shelters, and my goal has always been the same; building relationships with dogs in order to enrich their lives, as well as the lives of their human counterparts.
My favorite thing about working with dogs is figuring out what makes them tick and helping them find a purpose. They’ve helped me discover mine, so it’s only right that I return the favor!
