“helping dogs live their best life”

Hi there! My name is Alex and I am a young professional who has been working in the pet industry for the past five years. My love of dogs started when I was seven with my first dog, a yellow lab named Callie. She was my best friend growing up, showed me uncodnitional love and really gave me a strong understanding of what a dog's purpose is in our lives. Today I currently have three dogs, two yellow labs and a German Shepard mix who are my avid hiking and running partners.

I am a responsible, trustworthy person with a wealth of experience with dogs. Along with caring for my own, I've walked, pet sat, boarded and fostered dogs for family members, friends and associates throughout my life. My early experiences working at a pet shop and as a veterinarian's assistant provided a foundation of dog care knowledge that I've continued to build on ever since. After a lengthy career in the Information Technology sector I opted to retire early and pursue rewarding part-time work. As a Fairfield resident for over 20 years, I'm committed to providing local Wag clients with the best dog walking service possible.

I am a recent UConn graduate and drummer, currently building a portfolio and playing local gigs. I have wanted a dog all my life but have not been able to due to allergies in the family. This gig lets me spend time with dogs while learning about different breeds which will help me decide on what type of dog I would like for myself in the future. I will be excited to meet yours and care for them as if they were my own!

Dog Walking in Redding

Redding, Connecticut has quite an interesting history. From the settlements of the Revolutionary War to the modern-day historical preservation of the railroads, you are sure to find something interesting to learn. Several buildings within the community are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so if your hound loves history, this is the pawfect spot to visit! There aren't any veterinary clinics located within Redding itself, but there are three animal hospitals in the vicinity in case your pup needs some assistance staying happy and healthy.

The town of Redding is committed to preserving the green spaces in the area. They even have a committee just for it. There is an area in the town called Open Space, which is -- as you might have guessed -- just green space left untouched. You can come here and walk your dog; just remember to clean up after him and keep him on a leash. 

If you would like to grab a bite to eat, head over to the Wire Mill. You can get some of the best "bark-b-que" in the area here! Your dog can join you at any of the outdoor tables. You can also call ahead and order a meal to-go for a picnic at one of the local parks.

Topstone Park is a barktastically large park with over two hundred acres. There are multiple paths to walk and a lake to play in, where you can also fish.

You will need to bring doggie waste bags. There are fountains and restrooms for you to get drinking water if you don't want to carry your own. This is the pawfect getaway for you and your dog!
