Enfield is a lovely and welcoming city in Connecticut where you and your dog will feel right at home! With one wag of his tail, your dog will have plenty of new puptastic friends as you make your way along the streets of Enfield. This town is a great place to stop if you find yourself in Hartford County and want some dog-friendly adventures during your stay. The northern part of Enfield rest right against the state line, which is a great spot for a scenic selfie! Powder Hollow Park is a wonderful spot in the city of Enfield where you can take your dog for a long walk after a stressful day at the office.
You will both feel better after a long week if you head down to the Scantic River State Park. This park is complete with trails and hills that you can walk or hike. Keep in mind that some of the hikes are challenging, so make sure you have a comfortable harness for your dog to help him along the terrain (or so he can help you!). There are two animal hospitals in Enfield, either of which is a great choice if your dog needs a wellness exam or if you should have an emergency that needs special attention.
If you are looking for an oasis for nature-loving dog walkers, Enfield is the place to be!
