Dog Walking in Centerbrook

Centerbrook is a village in the town of Essex, Connecticut. It is one of three villages that are individually unique within Essex. Situated on the banks of the Connecticut River, Centerbrook is surrounded on three sides by water. The village was founded in the late 1700’s as a shipbuilding-dominated area. It came to be famous for this industry, and even today, boaters and sailors flock to the area as a famous destination for historical attractions and to enjoy the village’s fine culinary fares. This village is also pup-friendly and is the perfect place for Fido, where there is one veterinarian to take care of all their health needs, focusing on preventive medicine.

Parks are plentiful in the villages surrounding Centerbrook but there are plenty of sidewalks throughout the village to take your fur-ever friend for a stroll. They will lead you both past historic homes, down to the harbors’ water’s edge, and through the village’s tree-lined avenues.

When you both get hungry, Centerbrook’s dog-friendly Woodsman’s Restaurant offers fried clams and delicious fresh seafood meals. Small dogs are always welcome on their outside patio. 

Centerbrook happily encourages you and your pup to discover why New England has so much to offer.
