My name is Jessica and I have been working professionally with animals since 2011. I have worked as a kennel attendant at multiple doggy daycares. I was responsible for supervision, cleaning, feeding, and medicating dogs. I learned how to interact with different temperaments. I became employed at that another day care while working for a groomer. While working with a variety of animals is enjoyable accidents can still happen. Therefore, I am pet CPR and First Aid certified.

Ever since I was young my fondness for dogs led me to where I am now with years of practice handling all types of dogs, large or small, active or not. Age is not an issue, for I have experience with senior dogs and puppies. I am currently employed at a boarding facility for dogs, cats, and other pets as well where I feed, exercise, and bathe. I can also administer medication, including some shots. I will accommodate to you and your pet(s) needs to the best of my ability. You can always reach me by phone with a call or text message. So rest assured, your dog will always be in great hands with me!

Despite the large size of the Giant Schnauzer, this big dog can run as fast as 28 miles per hour. They were once working dogs, diligently herding livestock and guarding farms and homes. Keep your Schnauzer a pro at this innate talent by joining a herding club and watch your pooch be at the top of the class.
Small dogs are pretty feisty and ready to take part in any activity. They love a good game of fetch and adore a fast-paced walk about the neighborhood. Often though, mini-mutts should be wearing a harness when promenading along the sidewalk. This is because many little dogs are at risk for collapsed trachea, especially when the collar is tugged. Teach your pup not to pull on the leash as they walk, and trachea injury won’t be likely.
Even though Beagles love to track and vocalize when they are chasing squirrels in the yard, this friendly pooch is known to be a friend of felines. That’s right - if you are not only a dog lover but a fan of cats, too, the Beagle is one of the breeds to be friendly with cats. Other cat cuddlers are the Retriever doggos, namely the Golden and Labrador Retrievers.
If you are looking for in-home training for your furry buddy, dog trainers in Bridgeport are ready to give you a hand. The cost is usually determined by an hourly rate. Expect to pay between $135 and $180 per hour, with extra travel fees if you reside out of the trainer’s usual setting. Often, lifetime support by email is included in the package.
How much will you pay for group classes in Bridgeport? Prices range from $140 to $195 and will depend on the level of the class. Commitment to the course is essential so that your pooch can stay on track with what is being taught. If you have a work schedule that changes each week, you may find it challenging to make it to a weekly class.
Board and train is an option for pet parents who would like to have their dog trained for them. Four-leggers head off to the trainers home or facility for a stay of one to four weeks, and sometimes even longer. This involves an expense of between $1000 for a week and $3000 for 3-4 weeks. Remember, though, the training does not stop when Fido comes home. Practice makes perfect, and it has to be kept up for your investment to be worth the time and expense.

Both dogs and owners in Bridgeport are lucky. Why? Because the town is known as “The Park City,” and what pooch won’t love that? Whether the outing calls for an afternoon at the seashore or a morning exploring a woodland field, we know your pup is game to be included.
There are a few rules to be aware of before planning your day at the park or shore. Dogs cannot roam at will and must be on a leash at all times when out and about in the neighborhood. Your pup must be licensed and vaccinated against rabies, and that includes the family feline, too. Pick up after your pet wherever you go, and when headed out for dog park fun anywhere in the state, remember you are responsible for your dog and their actions.
Norwalk is minutes away from Bridgeport and is a doggy haven, according to Fido and friends. Taylor Farm Dog Park is the place to be, and well-behaved pups have free reign over an area of 4.5 acres. Before letting your dog loose here, practice their recall because they may be tempted to explore at a distance. They’ve got Cow Pasture Beach to investigate, after all! A wooded area is there to enjoy as well, but take note that none of this park has fencing.
Ten minutes away from Bridgeport is Shelton, a quaint town with the perfect park for energetic dogs. Shelton Dog Park is large and offers everything that the typical doggo loves: dirt, grass, and trees! Separate areas keep the mini-mutts safe from frolicking big dogs who may mistakenly injure them in excitement.
Bridgeport has an abundance of dog trainers ready to get your willing pooch started on the right track to perfect pup behavior. Is your canine kiddo itching to learn how to perfectly perform the heel position? If flyball is in your dog’s future, then a speedy recall is a must. How about therapy training one day? Staying calm in all situations is taught by exposing your dog to various environments. Dog trainers in Bridgeport are game to get the ball rolling!
What breeds of dog will you see learning to jump hurdles in the flyball club? Look for Goldendoodles and Labradoodles, two of the fan faves near Bridgeport. With a Retriever and Poodle lineage, these eager pups should ace the flyball instruction and be keen to attempt the hurdles at full speed.
Three more large dogs made the roster of popular pups, and they are the Labrador Retriever, the German Shepherd, and the Siberian Husky. These four-leggers are happiest when given a job to do and thrive with socialization. Have Fido enrolled in a pack walking group to satisfy their need for being among friends. Ready to start your pooch in the world of obedience and doggy fun? A daily dose of togetherness with you can include practicing commands like “drop it” and fun games such as catching a ball. Canines really do enjoy training, especially when they can please you, their number one fan!
