    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.

    “Dog Tested, Owner Approved”

    As a child, I was firmly a cat person and thought dogs were terrifying - but then we got one! Marla helped show me that the line between cat and dog lovers is meant to be blurred. While cats are still the only animal I have tattooed on my skin, the many dogs I've taken care of will always have a special place in my heart. But don't worry, there's still plenty of room left for your furry buddy too!

    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!

    Like all of my colleagues here at Wag, I love dogs and they love me back. My general disposition is calm and aware. My family members call me “the dog whisperer” because of my natural affinity to all pets. I have a special connection to shy and reserved dogs. A breeder friend of mine took in a rescue German Shepherd and I was the only person the dog allowed into her personal space. In addition, I am an avid hiker which provides the endurance to ensure good healthy walks for both your dog and me.

    “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.

    I was a Wag Walker for over 2 years, but took a break to focus on school and my career. However, I have some free time this summer so I wanted to open myself back up for walks/sittings/drop ins! As you can see I have lots of walks/miles under my belt so I am confident when interacting with animals and will do everything I can to make sure you and your pet have the best experience possible!

    Hi! My name is Rachel and I am 25 years old living in southern Fairfield county. I've been around dogs my whole life and I absolutely love them. I've been trusted by many friends to sit, board, and walk their dogs. I am currently unable to have a dog of my own, so walking other dogs is the next best thing. My top priority is your dog's safety and happiness.

    Hey there, I'm Cecile. I learned how to love and care for dogs from my older sisters. Pets have enriched my life. I'd like to, now, be of service to other dog owners. Your pet will be well taken care of, and adored, while in my care. I received my Veterinary Assistant certificate from Middlesex Community College in 2018.

    Hi, I’m Bob- I’ve been an animal lover all my life. I grew up in Irvington, NY with a Boxer named Rudy and a Poodle named Pepe. I’ve been walking dogs in Westchester County for 5 years and now that I live in Connecticut I’d like to continue. I have experience with dogs of all ages and sizes, from walking 5 yorkies at a time to one big 13-year-old Akita named Yoshi. At home, I have an 8-year-old English Bulldog named Vito and a 7-year-old Golden Doodle named Hazel. I will treat your dogs as if they were my own. And as always “SAFETY FIRST”

    Dogs can grab a bite with their human companion, and eat in a couple of fine restaurants in town. Hudson’s Deli at 2377 Main Street has canopied outdoor seating for the comfort of customers. The food is hearty fare. Biagio’s Osteria at 88 Ryders offers some more gourmet fare with outdoor dining, too. The menu here is Italian with a splash of New England seafood. Homewood Suites accommodates you and your dogs for an additional fee of $25 per dog per night. Dogs up to 100 pounds can lounge in a pet-friendly room. This hotel is owned by Hilton, and is located at 6905 Main Street.

    Fairfield

    Less than a 10-mile drive to the southeast of Stratford is the town of Fairfield. Jennings Beach sits upon the ocean, and during the off-season allows dogs to run the beach off-leash. The ordinance sets out the off-season to be October 1st through March 31st. Leashes at Jennings are required on boardwalks, parking lots, and other public areas. The Cascades at Mohegan Lake provide a freshwater opportunity to run-off leash during the off-season. The large lake has some nice surrounding places to play and run. If it isn’t too cold, maybe a dip, too. This tract of land has numerous places to pad a bit of paw or stretch some legs.

    Southbury is a town some 20 miles north of Stratford. Stratford Dog Park is located off of Roxbury in a piece of land donated for this use by a local company. This large green dog park is only partially fenced, though. There is an area for small dogs. A small creek runs through the dog park, too -- very pleasant amenity on a hot summer day! There are walking trails around the dog park, and a few benches. Bring plenty of poop bags. Extra amenities are few here. This is get back-to-nature kind of place. There is a lot of running room, but many dogs visit this place, so supervision is essential here.

    About a 20-mile drive to the northeast is the town of Branford. Branford operates a small dog park. This is frequented by in town regulars, but visitors are allowed to use the facility. The surface is a mix of patchy grass, wood chips, and after a hard rain, a bit of mud. This park does not have any water on-site, so be prepared. Some poop bags are stocked, but again this park has had some issues in the past with maintenance, so bring your own. The park has a separate space for the small or timid dogs. Larger dogs run together. Pet pals can be made here!

    Westport is a 13-mile drive southwest of Stratford, and is home to a great little dog park called Winslow Dog Park. This dog park has a large grassy fenced area for dogs to run and socialize. Walking trails are situated inside the dog park itself so dog and human companion are able to exercise together. This well-maintained dog park has waste bags and water available on-site. Other parts of of the larger park have trails to walk on-leash. Picnic sites are great for a lunch after doing so much walking. If you didn’t pack a lunch, stop in at the Border Grill located at 1550 Post Road E. This little Mexican eatery serves south-of-the-border food outside for you and your dog to enjoy.
