Premier Pet Care

The Emerald Neckleash is an environmentally conscious neighborhood pet care services provider that offers dog walking and pet sitting services in some of the neighborhoods surrounding the Emerald Necklace, currently serving Roslindale, Jamaica Plain, and parts of West Roxbury for more than10 years.   The Emerald Neckleash specializes in personalized care:  one-on-one dog walks  in your neighborhood (no large packs!) and tailored kitty care with playtime.   We love caring for and connecting with animals and creating long-term relationships.  We provide care for your best friend as if they were our own and ensure that they receive the highest quality care while you're away. 


We Take Our Service and the Environment Seriously

We are a NAPPS member, are licensed with the City of Boston, and are insured through PSA.  We use only 100% (ASTM D6400) biodegradable U.S.-made poop bags when walking dogs and scooping kitty litter.


Ok, We Love Cats Too!

Don't let the "leash" fool you.  We take care of cats, bunnies and other creatures great and small!  (We just really like puns!) 

We Love This Part of Boston Too... So Being a Good Neighbor is Part of Our Job

The Emerald Neckleash was created as an earth-friendly company and is organized around the following basic principles:

  • Confine service to Roslindale, Jamaica Plain, and parts of West Roxbury to keep automobile emissions at a minimum. Some walkers travel to clients by bike, foot, or skateboard only.
  • Use only 100% (ASTM D6400) biodegradable, U.S.-made poop bags on dog walks.
  • Support MSPCA-Angell or other rescue organizations whenever possible.
  • Reduce carbon paw prints by making trips to clients by foot, public transportation, or bicycle when possible.
  • Recycle empty food cans from pet sitting visits.
  • Hire locally.  Keeping our neighbors working in our community helps the local economy but also promotes community pride and encourages a good quality of life (after all, who likes a long commute?)  Hiring locally also helps us to fulfill our goal of keeping our carbon pawprint as small as possible.
