“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.

I have had dogs my entire life; I currently have 2 chocolate labs. I have been dog sitting for about 15 years. My experience includes being a member of Kids for Paws and a volunteer at the SPCA. I am currently a weekend puppy raiser for America’s VetDogs, which raises service dogs for veterans and first responders. I am great with everyone from high-energy puppies that love to play to older dogs who just love to snuggle. I can’t wait to meet your furry friends!

Hello my name is Steven. I have been living with, and caring for all kinds of animals throughout my life. But dogs are my joy. I am freelance artist by profession, and dogs are one of my top subject matter. With my dad being an ex Dog show handler, judge and breeder, with 2 dogs of my own, not a day goes by where I don’t interact with a dog. I have been walking dogs professionally for about a year now. I have had several dog training classes. And I take them every few years to keep myself current. So I am looking forward to being able to getting to know your dog/pup and taking them for a walk.

Dog Walking in East Hartland

East Hartland is a section of Hartland, CT -- a community of about 2,500 on the border of Connecticut and Massachusetts. Since this city straddles two booming New England states, it’s no surprise that East Hartland is near countless dog-friendly amenities (including almost two dozen vet clinics within fifteen miles).

Two popular dog-friendly parks can be found less than ten miles southeast in Granby, CT. The 116-acre Salmon Brook Park is beloved for its clear layout, countless sports facilities, and the beautiful stream that runs behind it. There is also a designated area for puppy play, so take Fido for a romp! Enders State Forest is also tucked away in Granby, and this park is known for its gorgeous waterfalls and clear walking paths. A few of the falls even have pools big enough for wading, which water breeds will love!

If you’re willing to take a quick drive, head to Burr Pond State Park in neighboring Torrington, CT -- just twenty miles southwest of East Hartland. This well-maintained state park welcomes leashed pups. The area is rich with Civil War history, water access, and wildlife. To rest after your hike, enjoy one of the park’s picnic or beach areas.

Connecticut is home to countless wildlife areas, and East Hartland is no exception. Get out and enjoy this community’s Fido-friendly activities today!

While you are visiting just seven miles from home, you should definitely check out Granby Dog Park. This is an off-leash park that features tall shade trees, lots of room to run, and even picnic areas. The gem of the park is the river that runs behind it. You can splash and play in the river with your dog here, so make sure to bring a swimsuit and a couple of towels! The water isn’t very deep, and offers you a great way to cool off in the summer.  This is going to be your new favorite spot in the area and you will want to come back to visit often.

It is time to take a twenty-mile drive right over to Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk. Grab a leash and take your dog on the most epic shopping trip ever. Most of these shops are not only fur-friendly, but also go beyond what they have to in order for you to feel safe and happy. There is no more waiting in an unsafe car -- Fido gets to come along with you to give you an opinion on that new outfit! As long as your pawesome pal stays on a leash, and is well-behaved, you both can shop till you drop.

It is a thirty-mile drive to go to Mill Woods Park Dog Park, but once you get here you will see what a difference there is between this and other dog parks. It is a place that allows dogs to be dogs. The fenced in area is secure so that your canine companion can run and play with other dogs safely. The entire place is fur-friendly with watering stations and cleaning stations to make sure you are well-taken care of. Your dog will love the laidback atmosphere on both sides of the dog park. It is a nice place to play.

You should go the five miles over to American Legion State Forest. It will give you a great adventure without having to go too far from home. There are multiple trails that are all varying lengths so you can choose how much of an adventure you would like to have each time that you visit. In the summer, this is the perfect place to go because all the trees offer you shade and a cool spot to explore to escape the heat and still enjoy being outside. Remember to bring water and doggie waste bags for picking up after your pal.
