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 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.

Dog Walking in Thomaston

More than 7,500 people live in Thomaston, a town in Litchfield County, Connecticut. The town was settled in 1728, and in 1803, a clockmaking factory was built in town. Thomaston may be home to the original shelf clock, which was patented in 1814, but there's so much more to the town. The town prides itself on having all the trappings of a charming New England city, including great schools, educational, health, and police and fire departments, and an excellent recreation department. Thomaston is located at the confluence of the Naugatuck River, and it's also close to several big cities that are full of even more opportunities.

If you're looking for dog-friendly activities in Thomaston, you and your pup can head to Tony's Coffee Express Bakery on Waterbury Road. There are outdoor tables at Tony's, and on days the weather is nice, your dog is welcome to join you there on a leash. Their menu includes items like breakfast sandwiches, bagels, muffins, donuts, stuffed bread, and much more. They also serve up fresh and delicious coffee and other refreshing beverages. After your coffee and donut, you and Sparky can jump in the car and make the short drive to a nearby off-leash park for even more fun!

About 20,000 people live in Southbury, a town in western Haven County, Connecticut and the northeastern corner of the city is a 25-minute drive from Thomaston. Here, you'll find the city's own off-leash park. The Southbury Dog Park is a 14-acre dog park with a general area for all dogs, as well as a separate enclosure. Your dog can choose from running through open fields in the park, sniffing their way around wooded areas, trekking trails, or swimming in the river. Visitors should be aware that the general dog area isn't entirely fenced, so if your dog's recall skills aren't up to snuff, it's best to take them to an enclosed park.

It'll take you 45 minutes to drive to the Granby Dog Park in southeastern Granby, Connecticut and this trip will be well worth it. The city's off-leash dog park opened in 2006, and instead of separating dogs by weight, it features a large enclosure where dogs of all sizes can interact with one another. If you visit during the warmer months of the year, fresh drinking water is available from the park's fire hydrant, but it's turned off in the winter. Dogs who take to the water will love taking a dip in the creek behind the park, but the swimming area isn't fenced.
