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.

“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 Mystic

It may not be a big city, but Mystic, Connecticut has so much to do to keep you and your whole family busy. Mystic is considered a very dog-friendly town with plenty of things to do that allow your pet to tag along. While Mystic has fewer than 5,000 residents, it still has several pet-friendly hotels, as well as nine local veterinarians to keep your dog in tip-top condition!

Mystic began as a seaport village, and much of the town—including many of the restaurants, museums, and art galleries—is an ode to its nautical origins. One exception is Mystic Pizza, a restaurant in Mystic that was also the namesake and filming location for a 1988 Julia Roberts movie. While dogs aren't allowed inside Mystic Pizza, you can order takeout and enjoy their delicious pizza side-by-side with your pet!

Some other can't-miss stops in Mystic include the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration, which focuses on marine life rehabilitation and showcasing their famous beluga whales. You will also want to check out the Mystic Museum of Art and take in its 100+ years of history. Finish your day with a narrated cruise along the Mystic River, or, if you are feeling extra brave, you can take a spooky walking tour of downtown Mystic!

Mystic is a historic place, and one of the best places to learn about this town’s history is at Mystic Seaport in East Mystic. Here, you can explore the museum’s shipyard, walk down the river, or explore the nine gardens. There’s also a recreated nineteenth-century village here! Fido is welcome to join you for all of your activities at Mystic Seaport, but he must be on a leash and isn’t permitted inside the buildings. Luckily, there’s plenty to do outside! Mystic was a whaling village, and there is even a whaling ship you can board to get an idea of how it worked and what life was like aboard the ship.

Keep an eye out for the Mystic Bascule Bridge, and you just might get to watch it go up and down. The park has public bathrooms, lots of green space, a playground, shops, and restaurants nearby. Guests who visit Mystic River Park note this is the perfect place to bring your dog to play while you enjoy an ice cream cone surrounded by beautiful scenery in historical downtown Mystic!

Waterford, CT is just a 20-minute drive from Mystic, and the neighborhood of East Waterford is home to an off-leash dog park that is worth visiting. Stenger Farm Park is an ample green space with a walking path surrounding it, and it’s entirely fenced in to keep your pups safe. No matter the size of your dog, you can be assured there are separate areas for them to play safely with dogs similar in size. If you or your pooch tend to overheat quickly, keep in mind this park doesn’t offer a lot of shade, so you may want to visit when the sun isn’t at its peak.

Groton is known for its incredible water views, as it is framed by two rivers, but there is another great feature of Groton that many people don't know about. Just north of the Long Hill neighborhood in Groton, CT (and only a 15-minute drive from Mystic!), you'll find the Central Bark Dog Park within the Copp Family Park. This park is known for its friendly visitors (human and canine alike!) which you'll see for yourself in no time. Central Bark is an off-leash, fenced-in park, but it is surrounded by several trails that you can explore with your dog (on a leash), too.

Norwichtown is a neighborhood in Norwich, CT that is known for its rich history, which includes several 17th-century homes and shops. Just south of this neighborhood you'll find Pawsitive Park — a dog park that will make all of your doggy dreams come true! Like many parks, Pawsitive Park has sections for big and small dogs, but what makes it really stand out is a section for human children to play that is separate from the rest of the park. If that wasn't enough, there are even wading pools for a pawfect place to cool off on hot days. There are also walking paths, a gazebo, and plenty of toys to keep your pup busy!
