“helping dogs live their best life”

Hi there! My name is Alex and I am a young professional who has been working in the pet industry for the past five years. My love of dogs started when I was seven with my first dog, a yellow lab named Callie. She was my best friend growing up, showed me uncodnitional love and really gave me a strong understanding of what a dog's purpose is in our lives. Today I currently have three dogs, two yellow labs and a German Shepard mix who are my avid hiking and running partners.

I am a responsible, trustworthy person with a wealth of experience with dogs. Along with caring for my own, I've walked, pet sat, boarded and fostered dogs for family members, friends and associates throughout my life. My early experiences working at a pet shop and as a veterinarian's assistant provided a foundation of dog care knowledge that I've continued to build on ever since. After a lengthy career in the Information Technology sector I opted to retire early and pursue rewarding part-time work. As a Fairfield resident for over 20 years, I'm committed to providing local Wag clients with the best dog walking service possible.

“Dog Tested, Owner Approved”

As a child, I was firmly a cat person and thought dogs were terrifying - but then we got one! Marla helped show me that the line between cat and dog lovers is meant to be blurred. While cats are still the only animal I have tattooed on my skin, the handful of dogs I've taken care of will always have a special place in my heart. But don't worry, there's still plenty of room left for your furry buddy too!

Hey there! I'm Cecile. Growing up I watched my older sisters bring home strays and care for them. I learned from them how to tell if a dog is happy, scared, or in pain. I learned how to calm an anxious dog with a soft voice and that dogs that are more vocal, change their posture, or are not so interested in food, may be in pain or sick. I also learned how much fun it is to play with a dog. I am enrolled in the Veterinary Assistant Program at Middlesex Community College to learn more about the animals I love. I will receive my certificate February 14, 2018.

This gig lets me spend time with dogs while learning about different breeds which will help me decide on what type of dog I would like for myself in the future. I will be excited to meet yours and care for them as if they were my own!

Dog Boarding in Bridgeport

The seaport city of Bridgeport may have a long and proud history, but the city’s attitude towards its canine population certainly isn’t stuck in the past. Whenever dogs in and around Bridgeport suffer abuse, neglect, or abandonment, there are plenty of excellent animal welfare groups ready to help out.

The Connecticut Humane Society is a shining example. Founded in 1881 as a private charity, this is Connecticut’s oldest animal welfare organization. With a vision to create a state where each companion animal finds a permanent, compassionate home, the Connecticut Humane Society provides adoption services, medical care, education, and acts to prevent animal cruelty in Bridgeport and the surrounding areas. As an independent non-profit that receives no funding from the government or any national humane organizations, it relies entirely on generous public donations to continue its important work.

The SPCA of Connecticut also works tirelessly to help animals in need. Based in Monroe, this no-kill shelter has placed thousands of adoptable dogs and cats into their forever homes. With the help of dedicated staff and a team of compassionate volunteers, the group is a non-profit organization that’s always on the lookout for extra support.

Stratford Animal Rescue Society is yet another non-profit animal welfare group funded by private donations, public fundraising, and grants. Founded in 2000, its mission is to arrange the adoptions of homeless animals into loving homes throughout the area and to provide essential food and medical treatment for the animals impounded at the Stratford Animal Control Facility. Thanks to the help of the animal-loving public, it’s made a huge difference in the lives of many unwanted dogs.
