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!

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!

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.

Dog Walking in Stratford

Stratford, Connecticut is one of the oldest towns in the nation. Settled in 1639, Stratford is known today for its' impact on aviation and the miles of beautiful coastline that surround the town. It's also a great place to spend some quality time with your four-legged friend!

Nearby dog parks include Eisenhower Dog Park, which offers two separate fenced-in areas and a water supply. In addition, Eisenhower Park contains several nature trails and access to a pond. There's also Trumbull Dog Park, which boasts a sizable dog run and several amenities, like water and doggie bags. Both parks have seating options for you to relax while Fido meets the other dogs.

Ready to get out on the trails? A local favorite is the Housatonic Rail Trail, also called the Pequonnock Valley Greenway. This partially-paved route extends five miles, winding through woodlands, streams with rapids, and rock outcroppings. Dogs and humans alike are sure to enjoy the variety of landscapes.

Stratford is also home to the Roosevelt Forest, which covers over 400 acres of land. Established in the 1930's, this beautiful forest is home to many species of Connecticut wildlife, including hardwoods, evergreens, and various reptiles and amphibians. As for amenities, the park provides playgrounds, picnic tables, restrooms, and paths.

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.
