Dog Walking in Branford

Located eight miles east of New Haven, Branford is a shoreline town that boasts a rich history, unique communities, and diverse geography. Despite its dense population, Branford has several natural areas that Fido will definitely enjoy exploring. The town has four animal hospitals, so you can rest assured that your best friend will be taken care of if needed.

Doggos who love being outdoors should not miss the Beacon Hill Preserve, which was saved by the locals from three development proposals. Thanks to their efforts, everyone can now enjoy the beauty of Beacon Hill and its surrounding areas. All year round, Beacon Hill offers breathtaking views of Long Island Sound and the Farm River marshes. If you and Fido visit between April and May, you will greeted by an abundance of wildflowers, including Dutchman's breeches, blue cohosh, trout lily, and wood anemone.

The 350-acre Supply Pond Park is a favorite among nature enthusiasts, hikers, bikers, and puppers. Here, you and your pooch can take a nice walk in the woods while taking in the beautiful scenery. If he likes to swim, there are many ponds and streams where he can dip his paws.

Come explore Branford with your best pal—you won't be disappointed!

A serene haven in a densely populated part of town, the Short Beach Preserve is a 40-acre gem located in the neighborhood of Branford Hill. Here, you can enjoy the natural scenery of southern Connecticut with Fido, who is welcome to join you on the preserve's isolated trails as long as he stays leashed. The easy, mile-long hike will take you and your pooch among tall oaks, beeches, mountain laurels, rock outcroppings, wetlands, and to a bluff that offers puptastic views of Talmadge Pond and Long Island Sound. It is recommended to visit the Short Beach Preserve in June when the mountain laurels are in full bloom.

Young's Pond Park is a furrific space where puppers are free to run and play off-leash. While it is not fenced, it is set back from the road enough and surrounded by a stone wall. There are usually many dogs around, so Fido will be too busy socializing to even think about running off. If there are no other dogs at the park, you can take your best friend for a walk on the trails and by the pond. Another attraction in the area that's frequented by the local pooches is the Branford Trolley Trail, a half-mile scenic trail that follows the route of an abandoned trolley track and goes through a salt marsh.

Looking for a place to relax with your pup? Head over to Ecology Park, where you can take in stunning panoramic views of Long Island Sound and the town center. A former landfill, Ecology Park sits on top of a hill so a short climb is in order. Once you make it to the top, you and Fido can hang out in the picnic area and admire the beautiful scenery. Afterwards, take a quick drive to The Stand: Roadside BBQ and Market for dinner. Since the restaurant used to be the site of a full-service gas station, it has a spacious outdoor dining area where dogs are welcome to join their humans.

Spending a couple of days in town with Fido? No problem, especially if you're staying in Downtown Branford. Motel 6 welcomes pets of any size for no additional fee, but be sure to call first to reserve a pooch-friendly room and note that dog beds are not provided. Lynn's Restaurant & Delicatessen, which is right next to the hotel, has outdoor seating with umbrellas, so you can grab a bite to eat any time with Fido in tow. Another option is the Hornet's Nest Deli, which is a short walk away from the hotel and features a spacious patio overlooking a small stream.

Fancy a pint? Local Kitchen & Beer Bar offers a great selection of craft beers on tap and allows dogs at their al fresco dining area, so you can enjoy some local food and drinks with Fido by your feet. Not only is the patio roomy, it's also gated, so you can really let your hair down. Expect Fido to receive topnotch service, as previous customers say their pups were treated woofderfully by the staff. After dinner, take Fido for a leashed stroll at Branford Hills Field. A former school site, this 13-acre park is now used for various activities such as softball, basketball, and sledding.
