“helping dogs live their best life”

Hi there! My name is Alex and I am a young professional who has been working in the pet industry for the past five years. My love of dogs started when I was seven with my first dog, a yellow lab named Callie. She was my best friend growing up, showed me uncodnitional love and really gave me a strong understanding of what a dog's purpose is in our lives. Today I currently have three dogs, two yellow labs and a German Shepard mix who are my avid hiking and running partners.

I am an animal lover and have had a dog all my life but right now I do not as my night schedule keeps me at work for 12 hours at times. I miss going on walks with a furry friend by my side. I have pet sit all throughout my youth but mostly for neighbors and family friends. Let me know if you have any questions! :)

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 Walking in Danbury

Forget the flat landscapes of your typical dog parks because Richter Park on the corner of Aunt Hack Road and Autumn Drive is anything but flat! Choose from one of Richter Park’s two climbing trails, and take in Connecticut’s beauty on a long, relaxing, rejuvenating hike. Dogs are more than welcome on the trails, and won't be bothered by the local rangers, as long as they are on their leashes and cleaned up after. There are no admission fees or hours of operation for this park.

Can’t decide if you’d rather hike or swim? Perhaps you want to hike for half of the day and then cool off by swimming before heading home for supper? Tarrywile Park on Southern Boulevard can solve your dilemma! Enjoy the songs of birds and rustling of leaves while hiking the park’s trails, and then cool off with a refreshing dip in the park’s pond. Dogs are welcome as long as they are on-leash and cleaned up after. This park is free to enter and is open all the time.

You and your dog are going to have legs of steel after hiking around Bear Mountain Reservation! Located at the intersection of Bear Mountain Road and Candlewood Pines Road, Bears Mountain Reservation has breath-taking scenery of wooded areas and of Candlewood Lake. Fido is more than welcome, but he must be on his leash and cleaned up after. You may enjoy this park anytime you like, as it doesn’t close for maintenance.

This neighborhood is home to the Bear Mountain Reservation. This reservation allows dogs here as long as they are kept on their leash. If they are caught off their leash, you'll have to pay a hefty fine, so make sure you don't forget to bring it! If you want to spend a nice day hiking with your dog, there are plenty of hiking trails here for you and your pooch to explore. This beautiful wooded reservation also has a great scenic view of the Candlewood Lake, so be sure to bring a camera and a picnic!

This neighborhood is home to Richter Park. It’s not really a dog park as much as a trail to explore. There are two climbing trails in this public park. The only time your dog needs to be on a leash is when you walk through the golf course to get to the hiking trails. After that, your pup can roam free and explore nature. There are several opportunities for pawesome views of nature along these trails. If you and your pooch are looking to spend some relaxing time together while exercising, this is definitely a place you should check out. It’s sure to be a paw-tastic time for you both!

The town of Fairfield is located 28 miles southeast of Danbury. This neighborhood is very inviting for dogs and their owners. The main attraction here is The Cascades at Lake Mohigan. This is a dog-friendly recreation area. This is an off-leash dog park that offers plenty of trails to explore. There are great swimming spots along the way for your pup and for you if you want to cool off, so don't forget to pack a towel or two! The trails surround a lake and waterfall/creek called the Cascades. There are waste bins provided for easy cleanup, but you'll need to bring your own bags. Leave nothing behind but your foot (and paw!) prints.

Westport is located about 23 miles southeast of Danbury, but the commute is well worth it. Your dog will have a howling good time at the Compo Beach Off-Leash Dog Area. This is a dog area located at the Compo Beach and Yacht Club. Your pooch is welcome from October 1st until March 30th. There are no fences, but most dogs enjoy running on the beaches anyway. If you want a change of scenery, head for the coast to enjoy a day of fun in the sun at the beach! Remember to bring some doggie waste bags for cleanup. Nobody likes a litterbug!
