“Four legged friends are the best!”

*Woof!* I'm Joshua and I just said 'Hello!' in dog speak. I've been told I'm a good human and often get wet nose kisses in recognition of a job well done. Dogs are simply amazing and I absolutely love them. I appreciate dogs of all sizes and breeds, but big playful pups are my favorite. When caring for your dog, you can rest assured that your fur baby is in the good hands of a trustworthy human who is as loving to your four-legged friend as you are. Your pup is always priority #1!

Attractions like the Collinsville Farmer's Market, Antique Stores in Farmington Valley, and river tubing in the streams of the Farmington River keep the townsfolk happy and tourists coming back! The shopping center has over 50 unique stores where you'll find antiques you won't find anywhere else. Fido approves!

Dog owners can't get enough of Canton! There are 7 veterinarians, 2 dog groomers, and a pet shop all within the town's borders. There are plenty more pet shops within the larger Hartford County area, so you'll have everything you need to keep your dog pampered! If you're looking for a fun day outing, there are four parks to choose from, with 3 beautiful trail systems sprinkled throughout the town. Looking to eat a nice meal with your dog by your side?
