*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!

My experience includes being a member of Kids for Paws, an organization that raised money to donate to animal shelters, military dogs, and guide dogs. I was also a volunteer at the SPCA while I was in college. I am great with everyone from high-energy puppies that love to play to older dogs who just love to snuggle.

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!
