Hey there! I'm Cecile. Growing up I watched my older sisters bring home strays and care for them. I learned from them how to tell if a dog is happy, scared, or in pain. I learned how to calm an anxious dog with a soft voice and that dogs that are more vocal, change their posture, or are not so interested in food, may be in pain or sick. I also learned how much fun it is to play with a dog. I am enrolled in the Veterinary Assistant Program at Middlesex Community College to learn more about the animals I love. I will receive my certificate February 14, 2018.

Dog Walking in East Haven

East New Haven is a coastal town in New Haven County. Its colorful history dates back to the 17th century and includes indigenous people, Puritan settlers, and ties to the American Revolution and Civil War. Today, dogs living in this neck of the woods get to enjoy not only the town’s heritage, but also the abundant outdoor recreation opportunities. 

The Farm River State Park sits in the southeastern corner of East Haven. This 61 acre state park is calling your pup’s name, so grab his leash and head on over. It is located on the Farm River right before it empties into the Long Island Sound. Follow the Self-Guided Nature Trail to get a feel for the park’s flora and fauna. It takes about an hour, so your four legged walking buddy will get some great exercise. There are also a couple other trails that will let you see more of the park’s beautiful scenery.

For an easy afternoon walk, take a stroll through the East Haven Town Green. This 2.5 acre green space is a community gathering place. You and your pooch can meander through the park and admire the memorials to war veterans, or take a seat on a bench for some good old fashioned people watching.

Looking for a pawsome walk for your pooch? Pop over to Supply Pond Park in the neighboring town of Branford. Your four legged pal will love exploring this beautiful forested park. Follow the trails through the groves of trees, along the banks of cool creeks, and around Supply Pond. There is plenty of shade for those hot summer days, but there are also plenty of bugs, so be sure to pack some bug spray. You’ll get about a two mile walk in, so hopefully your pal will be tuckered out when it’s time to go home. Since this is a very pup-ular trail for dog walkers, your pal will definitely meet new friends.

It’s no secret that a tired dog is a good dog. Help your dog be her best by taking her for a walk on the Shoreline Greenway Trail. This wooded trail is just over a mile one way. It takes you through a forest of hemlock and laurel to a panoramic view of the tidal wetlands and Bradford Preserve. Along the way you’ll pass rock outcroppings formed by ancient glaciers, and will probably see some birds and butterflies. The trail also connects to Farm River State Park, so if your pooch still has energy to burn, you can continue your walk.
