“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!

Dog Walking in Cromwell
Whoever said small towns weren't pawesome towns has never walked their dog through the beautiful streets of Cromwell, Connecticut. This small town inherited its name from a shipping boat that traveled up and down the Connecticut River, the same river that borders Cromwell to the east. The town has a rich history dating back to the early 1800s. Historical sites like the Sage-Kirby House and Middletown Upper Houses are still standing. These historic sites make great places to explore with Fido! Also, another draw to the town is the recreational activities you can do with your pup on the Mattabassett or Connecticut River. Kayaking, canoeing, and swimming are a water dog's favorite pastime here!
Pet owners have an easy time living in Cromwell. There are 3 veterinarians, 3 pet shops, and a dog park all in right here in town. On top of the dog park, there are 4 other city parks to choose from where you can visit with Fido. In the northeastern pocket of the town lies a gorgeous state park which is the pawfect place to hike. If you love giving the kitchen a break and heading out for a meal with Fido, you two can chow down at one of the 6 pet-friendly restaurants in Cromwell.
Tails are perpetually wagging in this small, friendly town!

River Highlands State Park
River Highlands State Park
Does your dog love to immerse himself in the great outdoors? If you head 2 miles up CT-99, you'll land in the 177-acre River Highlands State Park. River Highlands houses bluffs that overlook the Connecticut River from 150 feet up. The overlooks from the bluffs offer an amazing view of the banks below. There are two public campsites where you can stay during the summer months. Dogs are more than welcome at the park, but Fido will need to be on his leash. Your dog will have a great time sniffing out the white pines, oaks, and beech trees growing in River Highlands!
Is your dog's favorite movie The Lady and the Tramp? If you live in the Timber Hill neighborhood, your dog can reenact the famous spaghetti scene from this classic doggie movie! In Timber Hill, you can visit Cromwell Pizza and Pasta, a casual Italian restaurant with a dog-friendly dining experience. The restaurant offers a build-your-own-pizza option, as well as specialty pasta and other Italian classics. Locals love the Amalfi Pizza with clams, bacon, and garlic on top! After filling up on some Cromwell Pizza, you and Fido can head over to the banks of the Connecticut River for a relaxing walk down the shore. It's so beautiful, Fido will be going mutts!
Does your little doggie bark for the New England Patriots or for the New York Giants? If you live in the Woodland Heights neighborhood, you can head over to this neighborhood's favorite sports bar — Chicago Sam's — to watch the sports team showdowns. At Chicago Sam's, you and Fido can enjoy wings, burgers, and Happy Hour while rooting your team on. Try the Sam's Mac N Cheese or Sam's Breakfast Burger! After watching the game, you can live the game by heading over to the Cromwell Dog Park for some off-leash playtime. There's a fenced-in area where Fido can run around with his canine brethren!
Does your dog love joining you at your local steakhouse because he'll get to munch on the gristle? Living in the Westfield neighborhood lands you within walking distance of the Red Fox Restaurant. The steakhouse's chefs specialize in grilling up various cuts of meat, like Veal Medallions or the New York Strip. The Red Fox also offers entrees like pasta, gnocchi, and the Red Fox Salad. After a nice dinner at the Red Fox, you and your dog can take a trip down to Cucia Park. This relaxing spot is a great place for a nice stroll through the grass and trees. Fido approves!
Does your dog love it when you visit the deli? Every dog does! Fido knows he'll get some table scraps just for being so cute! In the Pasco Hill neighborhood, you can walk with your dog down to Nardelli's Grinder Shoppe — Connecticut's favorite deli — which was established in 1922. Nardelli's specializes in Grinders, both hot and cold, but also sells other food items, like wraps, soups, and salads. All the Nardelli favorites are worth trying, but Fido's licking his chops over the Chicken Cutlet, Proscuitto Hot Pepper Chicken, and Italian Combo! Your pup can "whine and dine" his way to doggie food paradise here!
