I've owned and cared for many types of animals including: dogs, horses, cats, pigs, chickens, rabbits, goats, turtles and even a hedgehog. Although I've loved all my pets, dogs have always been special. I cherish dogs because their love and loyalty is so strong, but their personalities are as unique as any human's. I've been a proud dog owner all of my life. Taking my dog for a walk is one of the highlights of my day because I know it's the highlight of his! As a dog owner, I recognize how precious dogs are, so whenever I care for someone else's dog, I always treat them as I would want my dog to be treated if I were away.

Dog Walking in New Milford

New Milford, Connecticut is a small town located on the Housatonic River in the westernmost part of the state. There are many recreational opportunities in New Milford, which also contains portions of the Apestuck River, the Still River, and Lake Candlewood.

In fact, the local dog park is named after Lake Candlewood. The “Candlewoof” Dog Park was opened in 2010 after much hard work by a local non-profit, composed of pet lovers who wanted to create a safe, fun space for dogs to play off-leash. The park is open from sunrise to sunset daily. It is located in the field behind the John Pettibone Elementary School. Amenities include doggie bags and agility equipment.

Interested in a more strenuous hike? The Housatonic Range Trail ends in New Milford, on top of Candlewood Mountain. The six-mile path begins in Gaylordsville and meanders through beautiful woodlands, scenic outcroppings, a small cave, and large rock formations. Part of the trail even runs through a naturally occurring tunnel, although there is a side trail since the tunnel may be overwhelming to claustrophobic humans or nervous dogs.

For less intense hiking, try the Baldwin Park nature paths or the 140-acre Lovers Leap State Park, which both allow on-leash dogs. The state park has several scenic trails that are good for longer trips.

This dog park has a grass and dirt surface, and uses some artistry in its landscaping that is both beautiful to the eye and useful to the paw. Rocks form a bone shape, and dogs are able to maneuver through the obstacle course. The park abuts some trees that provide some shade on a hot day. Decorative red benches let human companions rest and socialize while supervising their friend at play.

Twenty-four miles to the northeast of New Milford is the Sunny Brook State Park, located in the City of Torrington. This State Park has over 400 acres of wooded and pasture terrain. Dogs are supposed to stay on-leash in the park, but don’t be surprised if you see some breaking the rules. Still, you should be a polite guest. Keep Fido on leash, and clean up after him. The State Park has miles of marked trails, and is a great location for fishing and for having a picnic. A stop at the dog-friendly Torrington Carvel on Main Street completes the day with a sweet dessert of ice cream or cake in one of the outdoor dining areas.

Bristol is a 38-mile drive from New Milford. It is an outing for a day off with your best buddy. Bristol is home to Rockwell Park which is located at 29 Park Hill Road. This park includes a fenced in dog park built on a hillside. The name of the dog park is B.A.R.K. and it includes one area for small dogs, and one for the big guys. This scenic dog park is built among the trees, and benches are provided here and there for the human companions. This dog park does not have water, and you need to bring your own cleanup supplies. All dogs will appreciate a good romp among the trees, but the slope can be hard to navigate for people.
