“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 Prospect

Prospect sits in New Haven County, southwest of Connecticut’s capital, Hartford. It is a small town, and perfect for a quiet getaway with your best mate. It is located at the highest elevation in the county, and is named after the views this provides. There is a veterinary hospital just north of the town centre, should Fido need a little medical help.

Hotchkiss Park offers a local spot to get some fresh air, with a paved walking path and plenty of grass to picnic on. From here, it is an easy walk through downtown to check out the local shops, as well as St Anthony’s Church and the Prospect Town Hall. If you keep heading southeast, you will find McGrath Park with its small lake to wander around, and Canfield Park for some more green space to explore.

If you are hungry in town, stop by Pizzeria Napoletana for some delicious wood-fired Italian fare, or Dunkin Donuts for a quick breakfast, lunch, sweet treat or hot drink.

Although a small town, Prospect has a lot of stories to tell and some great places to explore. There are many other pup-friendly towns close by too, so take some time out and enjoy this part of the world with your four-legged buddy at your side.

To the East of Prospect is Cheshire, where there is a pup-tastic walking trail known as Farmington Canal Trail in Farmington Canal State Park. This trail follows a disused rail line fot 84 miles, from New Haven, Connecticut to Northampton, Massachusetts. This section takes you along Willow Brook through a mostly wooded area and is a perfect nature escape from suburbia. Bring your water and clean up bags out here. To refuel after your big walk, head to Cheshire Coffee, where you can sip your hot cuppa outside in the sunshine with your pooch by your side. For a great meal, check out The Watch Factory Restaurant or Victorian House Restaurant, where pooch can join you at one of the outside tables.

Cheshire has an amazing pet-friendly park called Farmington Canal Historical Park. The park is part of the Canal-Lock 12 Historical District and has a two-mile paved walking trail dotted with historical information along the way. There is plenty of shade here, as well as water and some clean up bags provided. Roaring Brook Park is nearby and has another great walking trail to explore. Take a wander through the woods with your pup and marvel at the scenery – the trees, the seasonal waterfall and the historical monuments that are still standing. You will need to keep your dog on the lead in these areas.

Your dog will love an off-lead play at the Cheshire Dog Park in neighboring Cheshire. Set on two acres of grass with two separate fenced areas to keep pups safe, this is an active dog’s dream outing. There are clean up bags and water available on site, and seating for you to relax on while your pup plays. Agility equipment has also been installed at this park, making for extra fun and skill-testing. It is easily accessible and there is ample parking close by. Back on the lead, take a walk together down to Tenmile River and see if you can spot some of the local wildlife.

To the West of Prospect is Naugatuck, where you will find a poocherific dog park in Andrew Mountain Park. The Naugatuck Dog Park covers three acres, where your dog is free to roam, frolic and play off-leash in one of the two fenced areas. There is plenty of seating for you to relax at, and beautiful shady trees to enjoy while you watch your four-legged friend. This neighbourhood joins the top of the Naugatuck State Forest, where there are numerous walking trails to explore. Your dog will need to go back on the lead here, and bring yourselves some water and clean up bags.

Peterson Park in nearby Wolcott has a little dog park your pooch would love to check out. There are two fenced areas at the Wolcott Dog Park, one for the little pups and one for the bigger dogs. Clean up bags are provided, but bring some water for you both and a drinking bowl for Fido. Peterson Park is also a great place to go for a walk, once your pup is happy to go back on the leash. There are walking trails around the park for a quiet stroll, but if you are looking for more of a hike, check out the 15-mile Mannutuk Trail that winds through some spectacular woodland areas.
