I am a responsible, trustworthy person with a wealth of experience with dogs. Along with caring for my own, I've walked, pet sat, boarded and fostered dogs for family members, friends and associates throughout my life. My early experiences working at a pet shop and as a veterinarian's assistant provided a foundation of dog care knowledge that I've continued to build on ever since. After a lengthy career in the Information Technology sector I opted to retire early and pursue rewarding part-time work. As a Fairfield resident for over 20 years, I'm committed to providing local Wag clients with the best dog walking service possible.

“Dog Tested, Owner Approved”

As a child, I was firmly a cat person and thought dogs were terrifying - but then we got one! Marla helped show me that the line between cat and dog lovers is meant to be blurred. While cats are still the only animal I have tattooed on my skin, the many dogs I've taken care of will always have a special place in my heart. But don't worry, there's still plenty of room left for your furry buddy too!

Dog Walking in Milford

Do nature trails, ponds, and dog runs spell out a perfect day for you and your pooch? Then you for sure need to head on over to Eisenhower Park on North Street. Relax in the serenity of the nature trails, splash around in the ponds, and let your dog run off his energy at the dog run. You’ll go home tuckered out, but with smiles on your faces!

Silver Sands State Park is a small, but beautiful beach that is family- and dog-friendly. This beach is shallower than most beaches, making it perfect for little ones who are new to the ocean. Dogs are welcome to wander the beach with their owners – they could help find sea shells! – but they must be leashed and cleaned up after. Visitors are advised that the only bathrooms near the beach are port-a-potties by the parking lot.

Has it been a rough day? Perhaps it’s been a ruff day? You and your canine friend deserve to relax with a cup of coffee – or a bowl of water – at Café Atlantique on River Street. Café Atlantique is a dog-friendly coffee shop that is sure to have the drinks and food your desire after a stressful day. Dogs are only welcome at the outdoor seating, but a water bowl and a place to tie-off your dog’s leash are provided.

A short 16 miles northeast of Milford is the dog park at Young’s Pond in Branford. This is an off-leash dog park within Branford Park. The main park itself has so many trails for on-leash walking in the woods, but the Young’s Pond dog park is something really special. The dog park is only partially enclosed by a stone wall. The pond is set in the middle of mature forest, and dogs love taking a cool dip in it on a summer day. On the way back, stop in at Ashley’s Ice Cream at 1018 Main Street, where dogs are always welcome on the outdoor patio.
