Dogs are not only a persons best friend but they are also family, and I love them as such. I will treat your dogs as I treat my own, with love and respect and will cater to their specific needs as each dog is different.

    “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!

    “I look forward to meeting you and your pups! :)”

    Hi there, dog owners! My name is Kylee (please excuse the different profile title, it has to use my legal name). I'm 26 and a college student whose two favorite things are animals and the outdoors. So when I'm walking your dog I'm not just working, I'm having a great time! I was raised with three dogs so I have lots of experience, but I haven't been able to have one of my own since starting school. Feel free to contact me with any questions, I look forward to meeting you and your pups!

    “Hi Middletown area! I can’t wait meet your dogs!”

    Hi! I’m Molly. I am a former bartender (Covid changed all that) and current Wag walker (I’ve been with Wag for over 2 years). I am new to the Middletown area and am Mom to three rescue cats. I’m a huge animal lover and former dog owner of many years. I have also worked as a vet assistant and am very comfortable around dogs (and cats) of all ages, temperaments, and activity level. I have an open availability at this time. I’m looking forward to meeting as many dogs as possible :)

    “I will treat your dog as one of my family!”

    I grew up with dogs on our horse farm & pet sat through college. I was a vet tech, dog groomer & kennel manager for 8 years at a vet before starting my own business so I can do various medical treatments, meds, etc. I have 2 large dogs- Griffey a humane society pup and JJ a shep husky rescue from Texas.. If you are going away for a weekend/vacation, my daughter, son and I all do house/pet sitting in your home. Keep your dog in the comfort of it's own home/schedule & not the stresses of a kennel.

    Hi, I’m Megan,and I have owned dogs all my life! I have owned dogs as little as a Maltese all the way to Pit Bulls and German shepherds. I have walked dogs as big as Great Danes, so size and breeds are not an issue for me I love them all. I love all dogs of any size and any difficulties after owning Pit Bulls! I haven’t found a dog I can’t get through. What better way to care and walk that dog to where we both have fun?!

    East Hartford Town Center

    East Hartford’s Town Center shares Wickham Park with Manchester, the town next door. Wickham is a 250-acre expanse of land that features open fields, woodlands, ponds and picnic areas, along with attractions such as an aviary, Oriental and other formal gardens, and a nature center. Your fur-baby is welcome in all the outdoor areas, on-leash, even in the 35-acre bird sanctuary on the park’s southeast border. Walking Fido on one of the paved trails, across meadows or through the trees, then settling in for a picnic lunch would be just pawrfect! There are 3 restroom buildings, and drinking fountains are sprinkled throughout the park as well. This is an oasis in the middle of a bustling commercial area, and a don’t-miss-it stop whether you’re an East Hartford resident or a visitor.

    This neighborhood in East Hartford is where you’ll find a portion of the East Coast Greenway Trail named the Charter Oak Greenway. This is a dog-friendly multi-use rail-trail of about 14 miles that is great for walking, cycling and skating in fine weather, or cross-country skiing in the winter. The paved surface is also wheelchair accessible, and dogs are welcome on-leash. The Greenway is well-marked, and traverses fields as well as meanders through wooded tracts where birds and small mammals make their presence known. Fido will love the sights, scents and sounds you’ll encounter on this sometimes-challenging trail. A parking area and spur to the trailhead can be found at Veterans Memorial Park on Sunset Ridge Drive. Enjoy!

    Mayberry Village

    The Mayberry Village neighborhood contains a section of the leashed-pup-friendly Hockanum River Linear Trail, which is approximately 3 miles long and consists of a boardwalk and stone dust pathway through densely wooded areas and over wetlands. With views of the Hockanum River through the trees and rustic benches along the way, the trail offers quiet solitude and plentiful birds and wildlife for you and your pooch to see, smell and hear. The undergrowth, thick in some sections, provides a sense of removal from the Mayberry residential area it resides in. Because there are entry points in several places along the river, this can be as long or as short a walk as you like with your fur-buddy, anytime of the year. Woofderful!

    This neighborhood of East Hartford is home to the Town Green, a lovely park with wide, paved walking paths and lush green lawns planted with trees and flowers. The park contains a Playscape for the kiddos, and a basketball court, but it will be the walking that Fido will love. A bucolic, hushed setting greets you as you stroll along, and there’s lots for the fur-pup to sniff and hear along the way: birds and the occasional squirrel. Sadly, he won’t be able to chase any of them because he’ll be firmly attached to the leash in your hand, but that won’t detract from the fun! Have a sit at one of the benches, or throw a blanket on the lawn, lie down next to your furry bestie, and watch the clouds go by. Sounds pawrfect!

    This community in Wethersfield is where you’ll find the Mill Woods Park Dog Park. This popular off-leash park provides all the amenities you could hope for: running water stations, waste bag stations and receptacles, benches and picnic tables for the humans. The park is divided into 2 sections for large and small dogs, and the green grass and shade trees provide human and dog alike with coolness under the feet and overhead. There’s ample space for running and cavorting, and no restriction against bringing toys to make it even more fun! Some of the worn areas can get muddy in the spring, but certainly Fido doesn’t mind – be sure to bring a towel, though!
