“Responsible animal caregiver”

I am an avid animal lover, and have owned dogs, cats, and horses myself. My most recent dog was a chihuahua-pug-cocker spaniel mix who loved everyone. I have both walked dogs for friends as well as house sat for dogs, cats, and horses. Animals have always approached me, feeling comfortable with my easy attitude.

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.
