As one of the original cities that was founded in America, there are plenty of places to explore in Fairfield, Connecticut. There are lovely historic neighborhoods, parks, and beaches to see with your best friend. One of the most pleasing for pets in the Jennings Dog Beach.
Jennings Dog Beach is a great place to let your water-loving pooch roam free. Plenty of space and sand to let them dig around for hours while you catch some rays. This beach is off-lead so long as you have vocal and visual control of your dog at all times.
Another place you can try is the Cascades at Lake Mohigan. This location is great for people looking to be closer to nature. This beautiful lake is surrounded by vast and lush greenery and plenty of walking trails to enjoy. Although dogs are technically supposed to be kept on leads, most dogs roam free so long as you keep an eye on them.
After a day spent on the water, check into your room at the Best Western Plus Black Rock Inn. They have fresh, clean rooms at a decent price and best of all they allow your pet to stay with you. For a meal, stop by Flipside Burgers and Bar. Not only can you enjoy a juicy burger and a pint, but even Fido can snack on some chicken as well from their special dog menu.

Hi, I'm Annie! I grew up in Fairfield with a Morkie named Abby. I've been walking her ever since I was a kid and walking her has always been one of my favorite things. By watching friends' and neighbors' dogs while away, I've gained experience with dogs of all sizes and temperaments. It is my pleasure to help you keep your pup safe, healthy and happy! I will treat your dog with the same love and care as I would with my little Abby and am committed to giving you the best Wag experience possible.
