Hello! I’m Katherine. I live a transient life working on various boats around the country and as such can’t have a furry friend of my own. I’d love to walk your dogs and share some special moments together when I’m not at sea! I do move around a lot, so I probably won’t be available for long-term repeat bookings.

Hi! My name is Drew and I love dogs! I grew up in Connecticut with my dog named Coconut. I am familiar with dog walking as well as boarding and pet sitting! Meeting dogs always makes my day 10x better. I love walking and now that I live in the city I don’t always get around to it, which is another reason why Wag! is great! I will treat your dog like the good boy/girl they are and always make sure you and your pooch are happy with the walk!

“Ambitious, Young, & Driven Pal For Your Furbaby”

Animals have played a significant role throughout my life, and I genuinely appreciate them to this day. My family was very influential in teaching me to love, respect, and care for our cats and dog properly, growing up. In the past, I have helped my family, neighbors, and friends care for their pets as well. Although I currently do not have any pets of my own, I still value the animals who find me along my life's journey. I always seem to have a place for them in my heart. How can you not?

Dog Walking in Groton

The beautiful Navy Town of Groton is situated along the Block Island Sound, and about an hour from Hartford in beautiful Connecticut. Along with dog-friendly neighbors and businesses, the town features several parks where you and Fido can spend the day. Three veterinarian clinics are available in Groton to help your pup stay healthy and ready for your next adventure.

On a warm afternoon, pack up the pooch and the kids and head over to Birch Plain Creek Park off Thomas Road. The 11-acre park sits along the Birch Plain Creek and features hiking trails and shaded benches where you can relax with your pup.

If Fido needs a new leash or collar, or you are looking for healthy dog food and treats, stop by Pet Valu where the friendly owners will answer all your questions and help you locate the perfect items for your pampered pooch.

Dining out with your pup in Groton is fun for the entire family. You can eat lunch at Costello’s Clam Shack where the shaded outdoor tables are a great place to relax with your pup. Another option for seafood is Fords Lobster located at the marina with riverfront views. Not only is the food amazing, but the staff are friendly and will give your pup extra attention.

Both Nautilus Park and Romanella Park are located in the subdivision, and offer space to walk Fido and enjoy nature. If you are looking for a spot to enjoy a staycation, head over to the American Legion Campground. You can pitch a tent with your pup and enjoy the weekend fishing or canoeing. With over 3,900-acres of land, there is plenty of room to get away from all the stresses of life and enjoy some fresh air and beautiful scenery. If camping is not your idea of a good time, check into the Ramada Inn Groton where you and Fido can spend the night in one of the pet-friendly rooms.

If you need a snack, there are food vendors along the beach where you can grab a hot dog and relax with your pooch on one of the benches. You can admire the lighthouses, or take the Ferry across the water. The area is well-lit and safe even at night, so plan to take Fido for a walk in the moonlight and spend some quality time together.

If you and your pooch enjoy hiking, plan a day at the Bluff Point State Park in the Groton Long Point neighborhood. Try your hand at saltwater fishing, or just spend time exploring the trails. You will need to keep Fido on a leash, and know that dogs are not allowed on the beach during the prime season. Walking along the shaded trails will give your pup plenty of exercise, but make sure to bring your water bottles. After spending the day hiking, head over to Dairy Queen where you and Fido can enjoy some cold ice cream and relax at the outdoor tables.

A fun adventure awaits at Haley Farm State Park in the Noank neighborhood. This Fido-friendly park covers 267-acres and preserves Colonial-era farmland. You and your pooch can explore the scenic shoreline farm, or walk or ride along the bike trail that stretches 7.5 miles from Groton to Mystic. You and the family can cross over the pedestrian bridge and enjoy the scenery along the path. Fido will love sniffing the plants and rolling in the long grass. You will need to bring your own water bottles and doggie waste bags.
