“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!

I have grown up around all kinds of animals especially dogs both big and small. I currently love and care for a sweet little chihuahua/doxen mix and hope to adopt a larger dog as well. I am very interested in using canine behavior and body language to understand how they feel so I provide the best care 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 Monty a golden retriever. If you are going away for a weekend or 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.

Dog Walking in Farmington

Farmington is a town in Connecticut that's home to more than 25,000 people, and it's also the headquarters of many major corporations. There are several historical monuments and moments that took place in Farmington, making it an integral piece of New England history. When George Washington passed through the town, he referred to it as a "village of pretty houses," and while more people work in Farmington than live there, it still has a lot to offer those who call it home. There are lovely communities, great schools and recreational facilities, and lots of green spaces you can explore with your dog!

There's a network of 1,600 trails spanning America that were created from formerly abandoned railway lines. One of these trails goes through Farmington, and it's known as the Farmington River Trail. This 16.5-mile portion of the trail is paved with asphalt and crushed stone, and it takes you through some of the most beautiful parts of town. As you trek this trail with your dog, you'll get breathtaking views of the Farmington River, as well as a variety of waterfalls and other scenic spots. Although your dog has to be on a leash on the Farmington River Trail, there are several off-leash dog parks just a short drive from Farmington!
