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!

Hey there! I'm Cecile. Growing up I watched my older sisters bring home strays and care for them. I learned from them how to tell if a dog is happy, scared, or in pain. I learned how to calm an anxious dog with a soft voice and that dogs that are more vocal, change their posture, or are not so interested in food, may be in pain or sick. I also learned how much fun it is to play with a dog. I am enrolled in the Veterinary Assistant Program at Middlesex Community College to learn more about the animals I love. I will receive my certificate February 14, 2018.

I am a recent UConn graduate and drummer, currently building a portfolio and playing local gigs. I have wanted a dog all my life but have not been able to due to allergies in the family. This gig lets me spend time with dogs while learning about different breeds which will help me decide on what type of dog I would like for myself in the future. I will be excited to meet yours and care for them as if they were my own!

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.

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!

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 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.
