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.

In the past I worked as a dog walker full time for over a year but recently decided to come back after a knee injury forced me to leave my previous job. My physical therapist said I should be out walking more so I figure dogs would be a great thing to work with again. I am excited to see some of my old friends as well as meet new pups!

The city has plenty of green areas and fresh air to help those growing pups and kiddos!

The Indian Well State Park is just a few minutes to the west of Ansonia and is a pupular destination on the weekends and during the summer months for those looking for a bit of pup-friendly outdoor adventure. You will find plenty of warm sunshine and walking paths to enjoy in this state park. Your dog is welcome to hike with you; just make sure you have a good harness for those trickier spots on the trails.

There are three animal hospitals in Ansonia, so your dog will be just a call away from a phenomenal vet no matter what end of town you are on.

West Ansonia has its own character and natural beauty that dog walkers are sure to appreciate. The Osbornedale State Park runs right along the edge of West Ansonia. This park is home to fishing areas, hiking, picnic tables and an environmental outreach center. If you have both fur-babies and human children, you will love taking the whole family for a day out at this wonderful state park. Dogs are allowed in designated areas, although they aren't permitted inside of the indoor outreach center buildings, so you will want to plan ahead for that part if you are bringing your family over.
