My name is Taylor and I am 19 years old. I attend Mount Ida College. I was originally a Vet-Tech major, but I recently switched to Business Administration. I’ve grown up around animals, especially dogs. I have three dogs at home, a beagle, a corgi, and a Bernese Mountain dog as well as a Holland Lop Bunny. Our corgi is an epileptic, so we have to take special precautions to make sure he is happy and healthy. I’d love to help families who are at home to let their dogs out or walk them so that their dogs can stay happy and healthy as well. I have a passion for animals And being around them brings me joy.

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!

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.

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.

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.
