Hello! My name is Megan and I just graduated from Georgia Tech with a biomedical engineering degree. I've always loved animals and have been taking care of dogs since I was 10 years old. I have a terrier-mix named Georgia who is 13 years old and still a very energetic pooch. I have over 12 years of experience walking and dog-sitting for all ages and breeds, from pups to seniors with special needs. I can't wait to get to know your dog and take it out to get exercise and explore!

Dog Walking in Madison

Nestled between dense forests and the relaxing ocean, Madison is the best place for outside-loving pooches. Within 36 square miles of land, Madison has over 18,000 residents, with the majority clustered around the southern neighborhoods, which is where 5 of the 6 veterinarians are.

If you want a special place to bring your pup, then head over to Hammonasset State Park. Dogs are welcome to walk on-leash around the nature trails, bikes paths, balls fields and picnic areas. Humans can even bring their pooches to walk along the beach, but only during the winter months between November and March. The park provides benches, water fountains, and trash bins throughout the park, but humans must bring clean-up bags.

Once you're done, you can head over to the Electric Cafe, which provides outdoor seating for humans and pooches. The cafe also has some other pet-friendly amenities, such as free dog treats with a purchase and a water bowl.  After that, you can enjoy one of their different smoothies.

Madison, CT really knows how to take care of their dogs, especially when it comes to getting out and exercising. With so many options to choose from, how can you not enjoy some outside time with Fido?

The Town Center neighborhood is a long stretch of land that makes up the coastal part of Madison, CT. The dog attraction you'll find is not at the center though, but right along the ocean, at the Surf Club Park. The park offers 2.1 miles worth of nature trails, friendly to humans and leashed dogs. Humans will have to pick up messes with their own clean-up bags, but its worth is to have access to 7 benches that are placed along the trail. Down the street from the park is RJ Cafe and Bistro, a quiet little cafe that offers delicious sandwiches and pet-friendly seating outside.

Green Hill gets its name from the rolling green hills that make up this small neighborhood in Connecticut. It's a great place to host Bauer Park, a dog-friendly home. The park welcomes all leashed dogs to roam in their open fields and the nature trails. Two nature trails make up the park, the Woodland Trail and the Pond Wetland Trail. Together they're about 3.4 miles of trails and genuinely stick the name 'nature' since there are no trash bins, clean-up stations or water fountains along the path, so be prepared!

The Madison Recreation Department in the South Madison neighborhood may look a little roof around the edges, but can be a great place to bring your dog for some exercise. The park is made up of recreational fields, but dogs are permitted onto the fields as long as they are not in use of any players. It provides a great place to let your dog run around in a safe, fenced in area and get all their energy out. The park does not have clean-up stations, but does have water fountains and benches for when you and Fido need a rest.

North Madison

The North Madison neighborhood is mostly made up of trees, a few houses, some people, their dogs, and a beautiful dog-friendly trail. The Indian Rock Shelter Trail is welcome to on-leash and off-leash dogs, and spans about 1.2 miles. What attracts people here is the natural Indian Shelters, a stone that overhangs to form a small "cave". The sight is pretty cool and will create a pretty nifty walk for you and your pup. There are no dog amenities here, so be sure to bring some clean-up bags and water while on your hike!

The Chatfield Hollow State Park is a natural experience for dog-lovers. Located about 4 miles from Madison in small, one-neighborhood town of Killingworth, the park does not disappoint with the number of pet-friendly trails there are. Dogs must remain on a leash, and clean-up stations are provided at the beginning of the park. Dogs are not allowed on the beaches, but are allowed to play in the smaller creeks that flow throughout the park. So with being able to swim, and walk miles peacefully through nature, why not bring your pooch here?
