“Dogs are Family & should be treated with love!”

I’ve watched dogs of all breeds/sizes overnight & during the day. My family/friends/clients have always been able to rely on me even if last minute they request for me to drop in or walk their dog. I’m very patient, calm, fun & energetic with dogs. I play fetch all the time with our lab and both our dogs love belly rubs and cuddles. I can be relied upon for walks, drop-in visits & day/night boarding. I’ve helped raise many puppies, I own 2 middle aged dogs, & have taken care of senior dogs.

Hi, I’m Megan,and I have owned dogs all my life! I have owned dogs as little as a Maltese all the way to Pit Bulls and German shepherds. I have walked dogs as big as Great Danes, so size and breeds are not an issue for me I love them all. I love all dogs of any size and any difficulties after owning Pit Bulls! I haven’t found a dog I can’t get through. What better way to care and walk that dog to where we both have fun?!

Hello my name is Steven. I have been living with, and caring for all kinds of animals throughout my life. But dogs are my joy. I am freelance artist by profession, and dogs are one of my top subject matter. With my dad being an ex Dog show handler, judge and breeder, with 2 dogs of my own, not a day goes by where I don’t interact with a dog. I have been walking dogs professionally for about a year now. I have had several dog training classes. And I take them every few years to keep myself current. So I am looking forward to being able to getting to know your dog/pup and taking them for a walk.

I am a HUGE dog-lover. I've had a family dog my entire life, and have always been a huge part of their training and care. My family's current dog Brandy (English Field Setter) was adopted at seven years old- her previous owner had neglected her and it took her a bit to trust us, but now she's as sweet as ever. I was glad to be a part of warming her up to us. Marley, our other setter, just passed last December at age 16, and I helped raise him since he was a pup. Needless to say, dogs have always been a huge part of my life. I've pup sat, walked and even boarded them since I was 16 or so. I've had experience with puppies to geezers (like Marley), and have worked with a variety of breeds and temperaments. It would be my pleasure to help someone with the care of their dog.

Thompsonville is home to a couple puptastic walking routes. Only an eight mile drive west of Somers, this Enfield neighborhood is a great place to spend some quality time with your furry BFF. To start with, take your leashed pup for a walk around Freshwater Pond. This paved path circles a decent sized neighborhood fishing pond. Continue on to the grounds of Enfield’s Town Hall. Follow the walking paths through shade trees, then stop by the gazebo and let your pal rest her paws. If she’s still rearing to go, head over to the nearby Lafayette Park.
