“I look forward to meeting you and your pups! :)”

Hi there, dog owners! My name is Kylee (please excuse the different profile title, it has to use my legal name). I'm 26 and a college student whose two favorite things are animals and the outdoors. So when I'm walking your dog I'm not just working, I'm having a great time! I was raised with three dogs so I have lots of experience, but I haven't been able to have one of my own since starting school. Feel free to contact me with any questions, I look forward to meeting you and your pups!

Dog Walking in Naugatuck

Naugatuck is a consolidated borough and town in New Haven County. It’s comprised of three small communities: Union City, Straitsville, and Millville. Originally settled in 1701, Naugatuck is now a vibrant dog friendly town surrounded by the beautiful New England woods.

If you have a nature loving dog, you have to spend a day or two at Naugatuck State Forest. This beautiful park sprawls almost 5,000 acres. Pack a backpack and get lost in the cliffs, waterfalls, forests and streams. Your pooch will get in touch with his primitive ancestry as he explores the rolling terrain. There are some established trails here, as well as those less traveled, so you have your choice of adventure. One of the most popular is the Naugatuck Trail. It runs 5.2 miles, so your pal will get plenty of exercise.

When visiting Naugatuck, you and your furry traveling companion will have a place to stay at the Comfort Inn Naugatuck. This hotel welcomes four legged guests for a small fee.  After a long day of exploring the area, kick back and relax in one of the comfy rooms. Be sure to take advantage of the complimentary breakfast; you’ll need energy to keep up with your pup!

If your dog seems to have some extra energy, it must be time for a trip to the dog park, and the Naugatuck Dog Park is the perfect place to take her. She can check her leash at the gate and run with reckless abandonment in this three acre fenced in park. Since this is Naugatuck’s only dog park, your pooch is sure to have lots of canine playmates. Small dogs have their own area for romping and wrestling. The park is surrounded by shade trees, and there are benches for pet parents. By the time you head home, your pal will be pawsitively tuckered out.

Is your furry friend itching for a walk? Clip on his leash and head over to Linden Park. Located right on the banks of the Naugatuck River, this linear park also has sport courts, soccer fields, and a playground. Take a brisk walk around the paved path to get your pup’s heart rate pumping. Then let his nose be the guide as he sniffs around the grassy fields. If he’s still rearing to go, continue down the Naugatuck River Greenway. All that walking will make your pal a thirsty pooch, so make sure to bring some water for him.

Nardelli’s Grinder Shoppe serves up delicious sandwiches and salads. Their menu also includes scrumptious desserts like cheesecake and brownies. After ordering your favorite sandwich, you can either chill out and dine with your pup at one of the outdoor tables, or head over to the nearby Joseph B Healey Recreation Area for a picnic. After you finish eating, walk around the park, or cross the street and stroll around Naugatuck Green. This delightful little green space has benches for people watching or paved paths for walking.  Whatever you do, your pup will be happy just to be at your side.

If you need some time for introspection or a break from the rush of everyday life, pack up your pup and pay a visit to the Gunntown Passive Park and Nature Preserve. This tranquil park is a conservation area for local flora and fauna. An easy trail circles the outside of two open meadows and passes through a forested section. There are also interpretive signs about the ecosystem so you and you pooch can learn while you walk. Take time to stop and relax on one of the benches and enjoy the natural surroundings. Also, be sure you bring water and a leash for your canine companion.

Hop Brook Lake borders Naugatuck to the north in the neighboring town of Middlebury. Since it is so conveniently located, it’s a pupperific spot for a weekend adventure with your four legged hiking buddy. Grab your pup’s leash, head over and start exploring. Although dogs are not allowed on the beaches, there are over seven miles of trails to hike. Let your pooch be the guide as you wander through white pine, maple, and oak trees. Keep your eyes open for wildlife; your dog won’t be the only furry creature in the forest. Deer, beaver, squirrels and other animals call this place home.
