I have grown up around all kinds of animals especially dogs both big and small. I currently love and care for a sweet little chihuahua/doxen mix and hope to adopt a larger dog as well. I am very interested in using canine behavior and body language to understand how they feel so I provide the best care possible.

I have had dogs my entire life; I currently have 2 chocolate labs. I have been dog sitting for about 15 years around my neighborhood. My experience includes being a member of Kids for Paws, an organization that raised money to donate to animal shelters, military dogs, and guide dogs. I was also a volunteer at the SPCA while I was in college. I am great with everyone from high-energy puppies that love to play to older dogs who just love to snuggle. I can’t wait to meet your furry friends!

“I will treat your dog as one of my family!”

I grew up with dogs on our horse farm & pet sat through college. I was a vet tech, dog groomer & kennel manager for 8 years at a vet before starting my own business so I can do various medical treatments, meds, etc. I have 2 large dogs- Griffey a humane society pup and Monty a golden retriever. If you are going away for a weekend or vacation, my daughter, son and I all do house/pet sitting in your home. Keep your dog in the comfort of it's own home/schedule & not the stresses of a kennel.

Dog Walking in Simsbury

The small town of Simsbury in Connecticut has been around quite a long time, since 1670! The city has come a long way, with multiple awards on its belt as one of the best small towns to live in, and it boasts one of the best educational systems in the nation. Dog-lovers will agree that Simsbury is one of the best places to live in, with two dedicated animal hospitals, plentiful hiking, and many dog-friendly parks.

The town even has its own dog park, called the Paw Meadow Dog Park. This gem of Simsbury boasts fenced-in areas for dogs to run around off leash, separate areas for large and smaller dogs, and even lights to feel safe and to keep playing after the sun goes down. Additional features include water fountains, clean-up stations, benches, and trash bins.

Another famous spot around town is the Stratton Brook State Park Trail, a 1.2-mile trail with scenic views of Stratton Brook and a waterfall along the creek. The path lies in northern Simsbury, and features trash bins and lights in the parking area. Pups must be leashed at all times in the park.

Simsbury is genuinely one the best small towns to live in for dog-lovers, especially with other dog-friendly parks like Drake Hill Park, Belden Forest, and Wilcox Park. With so many options, you'll have trouble deciding where to take Fido!
