Hello! My name is Megan and I just graduated from Georgia Tech with a biomedical engineering degree. I've always loved animals and have been taking care of dogs since I was 10 years old. I have a terrier-mix named Georgia who is 13 years old and still a very energetic pooch. I have over 12 years of experience walking and dog-sitting for all ages and breeds, from pups to seniors with special needs. I can't wait to get to know your dog and take it out to get exercise and explore!

“Lots of love to give!”

I have been working with dogs since I was 15, at a local boarding facility. The last 2.5yrs pet care has been my full time job. I've been doing both dog walking, and pet sitting in my home. I love spending time with dogs and bonding with them.

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.

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.
