“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.

The Enders State Forest is another furrific place in Granby where you can spend some time in nature with your best pal. Extending into the neighboring town of Barkhamsted, the Enders State Forest comprises diverse forests, wetlands, and multiple waterfalls. Though it's a relatively easy hike that can be completed in less than an hour, there are some steep slopes and the rocks near the falls are slippery when wet. Use caution and common sense, but also have fun! Beautiful views and great photo ops await for not much effort. As always, keep Fido on a leash and clean up after him.

The Holcomb Farm in West Granby is more than just a working farm that provides organic produce throughout Greater Hartford. This 367-acre farm also serves as a community gathering place and is home to miles and miles of trails that meander through scenic, varied terrain. Available year-round, the trails at the Holcomb Farm will lead you and Fido through forested highlands, sloping meadows, grassy flatlands, and rocky ledges. All trails are loops, so you can make your hike as easy or as challenging as you wish. If you participate in geocaching, several caches are hidden at the farm as well. Remember to keep your pooch leashed and refrain from physically interacting with any wildlife you encounter.

Spanning the towns of Granby, Barkhamsted, and Hartland, the Tunxis State Forest encompasses 9,152-acres of woods divided into sections on either side of the Barkhamsted Reservoir. If you need to “get away” with your pooch, quiet and expansive Tunxis is the place to go. Depending on which part you're in, the trails can be easy or a bit more challenging. Either way, you and Fido will come across beautiful scenery and maybe even some wildlife such as geese and moose. Don't forget to bring food and water, keep Fido on a leash at all times, and wear orange or reflective material during hunting season.

Puppers who love to hike are in for a treat in this neighborhood in nearby Simsbury. The Stratton Brook State Park welcomes leashed dogs on its hiking trails and in the picnic areas, so grab Fido's leash and favorite treats and spend a few hours exploring this beautifully wooded state park. Another spot that's worth checking out is the Massacoe State Forest, a 370-acre site composed of two separate blocks of woodland. The larger block, Great Pond, features the biggest standing body of water in town. Follow the trails that encircle the beaver pond for an easy hike. Massacoe is a pretty flat location, since there are no hills or mountains in this area.
