“helping dogs live their best life”

Hi there! My name is Alex and I am a young professional who has been working in the pet industry for the past five years. My love of dogs started when I was seven with my first dog, a yellow lab named Callie. She was my best friend growing up, showed me uncodnitional love and really gave me a strong understanding of what a dog's purpose is in our lives. Today I currently have three dogs, two yellow labs and a German Shepard mix who are my avid hiking and running partners.

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.

Hey there! I'm Cecile. Growing up I watched my older sisters bring home strays and care for them. I learned from them how to tell if a dog is happy, scared, or in pain. I learned how to calm an anxious dog with a soft voice and that dogs that are more vocal, change their posture, or are not so interested in food, may be in pain or sick. I also learned how much fun it is to play with a dog. I am enrolled in the Veterinary Assistant Program at Middlesex Community College to learn more about the animals I love. I will receive my certificate February 14, 2018.

I am a recent UConn graduate and drummer, currently building a portfolio and playing local gigs. I have wanted a dog all my life but have not been able to due to allergies in the family. This gig lets me spend time with dogs while learning about different breeds which will help me decide on what type of dog I would like for myself in the future. I will be excited to meet yours and care for them as if they were my own!

Dog Walking in Monroe

Monroe, Connecticut is a place of unique historical significance. The town dates back to the 18th-century and has done an excellent job of preserving its buildings and artifacts from that era. As well as being a historic community, Monroe is also a furrific place to be a dog owner! There are many green spaces here that you can explore with your best furry friend. Your dog will enjoy walking through the town taking in the beauty as much as you do. So come on, grab a leash, put on your shoes, and let's go explore Monroe, Connecticut.

Our first stop is going to be a massive 300-acre park called Wolfe Park. Rails-to-Trails has established a few walking paths in this park. You will also find tennis courts, playgrounds, and so much more to do here. You can even camp and fish. Please remember to leave as little of an impact as possible on the land, which means cleaning up after your pup as well. 

If you want to grab a bite to eat, stop by Carl Anthony's Trattoria. If the weather is nice, they open their patio tables for the pups to join their humans. While they do have a main restaurant at Clocktower Square, you can find their food trucks all over town.

Another really pawesome place to chow down is Lake Zoar Drive-in. They have the best burgers you can get in Connecticut! (We'll let you and Fido be the judge of that, though.) Your dog can join you at their outdoor tables. This drive-in is closed in the winter months. If you don't want a burger, try a chilidog or a brat. They also have shakes, ice cream, and smoothies. It is the place to be in the summer! Always remember to bring a leash. Dogs must be well-behaved and never left in the car alone, for their safety. Bone Appetit!

Webb Mountain Discovery Zone has many opportunities for the whole family to enjoy the outdoors. The park's motto is, "No child left inside," and that goes double for the fur-children! In addition to some easy loop trails, the park also offers summer education programs and even hosts birthday parties for kids. Your dog will need to be on a leash at all times, and you should always stay on the trails. Don't forget to bring water to drink while you walk. This is the place to come in the spring when the wildflowers are just starting to come to life.

MacDaddy's Macaroni Bar is just what it sounds like. Here, you can enjoy mac and cheese prepared in ways you never thought pawssible! From buffalo chicken mac and cheese to mac and cheese sloppy joes, you are going to get your fill of cheesy goodness. Of course, they do have dessert that doesn't have mac and cheese -- yet. Your dog can join you for a meal as long as he is well-behaved and on a leash at all times. Come and grab an outdoor table and a cold drink. If you love mac and cheese, you will want to make a trip (or two!) here while you are in town.

Rails-to-Trails is one of the most pawesome things to hit America. It is especially pawesome for dogs because this non-profit organization has given them 1,600 trails to sniff out! The Housatonic Railway Trail runs through the Monroe Housatonic Railbed, right alongside The Pequonnock River. Dogs must be leashed on this trail, but it spans quite a distance. You could spend the whole day trekking the trail! It goes through cities, parks, and greenways, so Fido should be good and tired when it's time to head back home. You will want to have plenty of water and waste bags with you for your hike.

Southbury is about fourteen miles from Monroe, but if you want a traditional dog park, it is worth the drive. Southbury Dog Park is an off-leash dog park where you can allow your dog to socialize and play safely while you watch. There is a stream for your pup to play in and trails to walk as well. This is the pawfect place for a game of fetch! You do have to clean up after your dog, but doggie waste bags are provided. There is no water in the winter, so you may need to bring your own.
