I have grown up around all kinds of animals especially dogs both big and small. I currently love and care for a sweet little chihuahua/doxen mix and hope to adopt a larger dog as well. I am very interested in using canine behavior and body language to understand how they feel so I provide the best care possible.

I have had dogs my entire life; I currently have 2 chocolate labs. I have been dog sitting for about 15 years around my neighborhood. My experience includes being a member of Kids for Paws, an organization that raised money to donate to animal shelters, military dogs, and guide dogs. I was also a volunteer at the SPCA while I was in college. I am great with everyone from high-energy puppies that love to play to older dogs who just love to snuggle. I can’t wait to meet your furry friends!

Dog Walking in Bristol

Bristol is a suburban city situated in Hartford County. A few decades ago, this New England community was a leading chrysanthemum grower, earning it the fond nickname of “Mum City.”  The Bristol Mum Festival is still held each year to celebrate the town’s heritage. 

Canine wellbeing is a priority for this dog loving town. Three top notch veterinary clinics watch over the health of the four legged population. Your pal can also stay fit by walking or jogging in one of Bristol’s parks. Clip on your pup’s leash and check out Page Park. Take a brisk jaunt through the wooded section to get your pup’s heart rate going. You can also wander around the open grassy fields or stop by the pond. For a change of scenery, head over to Brackett Park. This park may be on the smaller side, but your pooch will love cruising around the paved walking paths before taking a rest at the gazebo.

When in Bristol, be sure to check out Hoppers Birge Pond Nature Preserve. Your canine companion can cruise around the open meadows and wander through the wooded terrain. A small network of trails provides about two miles of pawsome walking space. No bones about it, your pup will be one happy hound!

If your pup has energy to burn, head over to the B.A.R.K. Park inside Rockwell Park. This unique off leash park sits on a forested hillside, so your pal will definitely get a leg workout. Your pal can race up and down the hill with her new playmates or hunt for the perfect stick. Small pups even have their own section. When she’s done romping around, clip on her leash and check out the park’s hiking trails, then cool down with a stroll around the open fields. Be sure to bring water, as your pooch will be thirsty after all that exercise!

The Farmington River Trail is a perfect trail for a little doggy cardio. This 30 mile path actually crosses through five towns, but there is parking and access in Burlington. Your pal will have plenty of mileage to stretch his four legs. For the most part, the trail runs alongside the Farmington River, so he’ll get to enjoy beautiful scenery during his workout. Since the trail is also pup-ular with cyclists, make sure your pooch stays on leash at all times. Also, you’ll have ample opportunity to spot wild critters. Keep your eye open for Heron, ducks, squirrels, and chipmunks.

Next time your dog needs a walk, head five miles north of Bristol to Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area. Located in the neighboring town of Burlington, this conservation area is dedicated to educating residents about wildlife. Leashed dogs are always welcome, so bring your pal over for a pupperific hike. Four interpretive trails weave throughout the property. The Beaver Pond Trail clocks in at 2.6 miles and guides you to a large wetland area with a beaver dam. Further down the trail, you’ll find a viewing tower and waterfall. This place will definitely make your pup’s tail wag!

Crescent Lake is located in Southington, and is only a 15 minute drive from Bristol. Pack a leash, snacks, and water, and head over for a dog friendly adventure. This beautiful lake sits on over 200 acres of natural space, so your pup will definitely get his fill of nature. While many two legged folks come for the kayaking, canoeing, and fishing, there is also puptastic hiking for the four legged guests. Trails range from 1.5 miles to 3 miles and vary in difficulty and elevation gain. Enjoy stunning views of the lake and foliage as you make your way up the hills. Sounds amazing!

Is your pooch craving some off leash time? Hop in the car and head south for 20 minutes to Southington Dog Park. Located in Southington, this fenced in area is just waiting for your pup. She can ditch her leash and dash around or romp and wrestle with new furry friends. There is a small dog area for petit pooches, and benches for pet parents. When she’s done playing with her pals, clip her leash on and head over to the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail for a cool down with a leisurely stroll. Don’t be surprised if your fur baby falls asleep in the car on the way home!
