“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 Ridgefield

Ridgefield is a town full of dog lovers – just ask the locals who use the town’s dog park. In 2014, an anonymous donor (and user of the park) gave the town enough money to fully renovate the park, including the installment of a 500-pound modern art doggy sculpture by artist Chris Cuman. Interestingly, the donor chose to remain anonymous but remain actively involved in the renovations, giving a dog lover's perspective to the much-needed project.

Now, the new and improved dog park is complete, with a permeable walkway, built-in toys, washing stations, sanitary stations with doggie bags, yard hydrants, and a small-dog area.

Ridgefield has over 5,000 acres of open space for dog-lovers to enjoy. Aldrich Park covers over 60 acres and features multiple walking paths that provide stream views. Nearby Bennett’s Pond has walks that range from easy to rough and steep. For a moderate hike, try the Florida Refuge, which traverses beautiful wetlands complete with large boulders – perfect for sitting, resting, or enjoying a picnic.

Pine Mountain is arguably the area’s most strenuous hike, so it’s perfect if you have an energetic dog you need to wear out! At the top of the mountain is a beautiful vista of the Long Island Sound. This hike will take an estimated two hours for experienced hikers – it is fairly rocky and steep.
