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 many 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!

I was a Wag Walker for over 2 years, but took a break to focus on school and my career. However, I have some free time this summer so I wanted to open myself back up for walks/sittings/drop ins! As you can see I have lots of walks/miles under my belt so I am confident when interacting with animals and will do everything I can to make sure you and your pet have the best experience possible!

Like all of my colleagues here at Wag, I love dogs and they love me back. My general disposition is calm and aware. My family members call me “the dog whisperer” because of my natural affinity to all pets. I have a special connection to shy and reserved dogs. A breeder friend of mine took in a rescue German Shepherd and I was the only person the dog allowed into her personal space. In addition, I am an avid hiker which provides the endurance to ensure good healthy walks for both your dog and me.

Dog Walking in Bridgeport

Bridgeport is one of the biggest cities in the state of Connecticut, and acts as a seaport along the Long Island Sound. The first part of the city was established in 1806, and 200 years later, the town has grown to be known as "The Park City" thanks to its public park system. Through the network, there have been multiple parks established and lots of dog-friendly places to go around town.

You and Fido will love a day out at the Seaside Park, a crescent-shaped park that takes up 2.4 miles of the seashore. Your pup is welcome into the park while on a leash, and can explore up to 325 acres of beaches, grassy areas, nature trails or sporting fields. There are also clean-up stations, water fountains, and benches in the park.

The Elton Rogers Woodland Park provides you and Fido a chance to get out of the city and step into nature. The park is filled with wooded areas, dirt and gravel trails, and scenic lake views, and is a quiet place to bring your dog on a walk. Dogs must remain on leashes while inside the park, and have access to water fountains, benches, and trash bins.

There are also 2 animal hospitals around town and a lot more outdoor places to go, which will leave you and Fido tuckered out and loving Bridgeport!

The Newfield neighborhood is on the southern tip of the city and known for the Pleasure Beach. The Beach lies on a peninsula along the coast and is home to the largest abandoned town in Connecticut. Dogs are welcome to the beach while they remain on a leash, and can even go in the water, or travel inland and explore the abandoned structures. Owners will have to bring water and clean-up bags. On the mainland, there's Newfield Park, a much more urban park with all the preferred amenities like water, benches, trash bins and a clean-up station. Here, Fido can run around the vacant fields or take a stroll around the park.

East Bridgeport is right on the water, and filled to the brim with residential homes. The bustling community is usually a busy one, but still offers plenty of great options to walk your pup. The Water View Park features a large area of open space along the water. With scenic views and vibrant grass, the park is right out of a picture, and allows dogs to enjoy the view too while they are on a leash. The park has benches, a paved path, and trash bins. Down the street is another area called the Eastside Park, which also offers lots of room for Fido to run around and play, with a path that encircles the entire park. Fido must also stay on leash at this park.

Downtown Bridgeport is the muttropolitan area of the city, lying right in the center. Despite the small businesses and packed look, the neighborhood boasts a lot of dog-friendly parks. The City Hall Park is covered in trees, offering a shaded getaway from all the busy streets. There is a paved trail that winds through the park, and a small open field that allows for a much-needed game of fetch for Fido while on a leash. The best part about downtown neighborhoods is they have tons of dog-friendly restaurants too, like Ralph 'n' Rich's Italian restaurant. This eatery has a dog-friendly outdoor patio, water bowls for Fido and delicious courses!

Whiskey Hill is a smaller neighborhood which does not have a hill made of whiskey. Lucky for pups, the neighborhood does have a dog-friendly area known as Beardsley Park, which is the largest park in Bridgeport with over 20 acres of land. The park lies right on Bunnells Pond, and features a small zoo. Dogs aren't allowed in the zoo area, but are allowed anywhere else in the park while on a leash. This includes the 2 miles of paved trails, fishing area, or open plains next to the pond. The park has trash bins, water fountains, clean-up stations and nighttime lights for extra safety!

The Black Rock neighborhood is on the southwest corner of town, and sits right on the water. With scenic views of the sound and beautiful trees, the Capozzi Park is a popular choice for dog-lovers in the community. Dogs are welcome to the park while on a leash, and will enjoy the small wooded area and all the shade it offers. The park connects to the Saint Marys by the Sea walkway, a 0.5 mile greenway that sits along the coast and offers picturesque views of the sound. The walkway is lighted, and provides benches, trash bins and water fountains to you and and a leashed Fido.
