“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.

I am a recent UConn graduate and drummer, currently building a portfolio and playing local gigs. I have wanted a dog all my life but have not been able to due to allergies in the family. 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 Stratford

Dog-lovers in Stratford, Connecticut and the surrounding areas are dedicated to the wellbeing of their homeless, neglected, and surrendered pets. Dedicated volunteers, veterinarians, and staff members are saving the world, four paws at a time! There is no better way to let our dogs know we love them than by supporting their cause and taking a moment to appreciate the work of the volunteers. 

The Stratford Animal Rescue Society is a non-profit devoted to nursing animals back to health and finding them loving homes. Dogs come in feeling scared and confused. Once they are in the loving arms of the volunteers, they get happier with each day until they are placed in their true, fur-ever homes. This rescue society even provides education for dog owners so that they can learn more about how to ensure that they have happy lives with their dogs. 

The SPCA of Connecticut, located in Monroe, is an organization made up of extremely qualified and dedicated volunteers. The non-profit aims to nurse animals back to health, find them forever homes, and help educate dog-owners on proper puppy care. Each animal at this SPCA is individually cared for. When pets are re-homed, the non-profit ensures they are going to the home that is right for both the dog and the human.
