Hi! My name is Moira, and I would absolutely love to walk your pup! I have multiple years experience with dog walking and boarding in my home. I also work at a dog daycare for four years now.

41 year old grad students looking to make extra money. I’m your dogs best friend! :-)
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!

“The best a pet can get”
Hello, I'm Jeremy! I'm currently a Graduate student at the UConn school of Social work. As much as I enjoy helping people with their issues, there is nothing more therapeutic than the interactions I experience being around dogs! I have a shih tzu of my own named Chewbacca whom I love to death. I have plenty of friends with all different breeds and sizes of dogs who I love the same. I look forward to meeting you and your best friend :)
“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.

Hi Everyone!! My name is Tracy! I'm a dog Mama of two. I have a mini Australian Shepherd who is 5 and an Aussie/Poodle mix who is almost 1 year old! Dogs are my absolute world! When I'm not playing dog Mom, I work full time as a counselor but I secretly just want to play with dogs all day every day!

“Dogs are my life :)”
My name is Hannah Crawford, and I am currently 18 years old. I have always owned a dog, German Shepherds to be exact. I currently have three German Shepherds so I am able to handle large and hyperactive dogs. I have always loved animals and hope to one days be able to have a career with animals so being introduced to new dogs and seeing how they act would be very fun for me. There is no specific breed or size of dog I would like to walk so I am open to any kind of dog and I hope to meet yours!!!

Socially Distanced Pet Care
Hello! My name is James, I am a 24 year old returning student. I have been around dogs my entire life, big and small. I spent five years in the military and six years working for a small grocery store. I am studying accounting but my heart lies with animals. My hobbies include hiking, reading, learning and any other way I can spend time outdoors. I hope to be able to make a lot of new four-legged friends.
Torrington is one of the larger cities in the area, with plenty of pupperific things to do and see if you find yourself in town with a four-legged companion. There are so many parks in this city that you won’t know which way to wag first! Let your pup lead the way, and you are sure to find an amazing spot for the two of you to enjoy some fun in the sun together. Stillwater Pond State Park is a great place for you to enjoy green grass and sparkling pond water full of local wildlife. You will need to keep your dog on-leash to make sure the wildlife doesn’t spook your focused little sidekick.
If you still have energy to burn, you will find the Puagnut State Forest is a scenic gem found right in the middle of Torrington. Dogs are welcome to join you as long as you have a good sturdy leash with you and you clean up after your pet. You may want to use a harness in the forest in case you come across some of the more challenging terrain. There are four animal hospitals in Torrington for your peace of mind and convenience.
Torrington, CT is the pawfect place for pups and people who love the great outdoors!
Sunny Brook State Park, located just north of city limits, is a must-see for dog owners! This state park, which spans nearly 500 acres, has 5 walking trails for you and your four-legged friend to try out. Sunny Brook State Park also has several different picnic areas, so bring along lunch for you and maybe a treat or two for Fido. Make sure to bring a leash, though; while locals say the requirement isn’t strongly enforced, there is a lot of local wildlife that could distract your dog while the two of you are out exploring.
Torrington’s own Burr Pond State Park has plenty for you to do with Fido, so grab your bag, some good walking shoes, and a leash, and head on over! Burr Pond State Park has trails for you and your pup to explore together, allowing you to take in the beautiful views the park offers. As the name of the park implies, there’s a pond for the two of you to check out; let Fido dip his feet in to cool off on a hot summer day. Bring along a picnic lunch and enjoy one of the shelters at the park. A leash is required in all sections of the park.
If you’re looking to grab a bite to eat, and you want to bring your dog along with you, look no further than the heart of Torrington! The Venetian Restaurant is a popular spot that serves up delicious Italian dishes. Dogs are welcome to join diners on the outdoor patio, assuming the weather allows for it. Backstage is another option; this restaurant comes with dinner and a show, and their website claims to be “fun for all ages.” Your dog may join you at any patio table. A leash is required at both restaurants.
Located 5 miles from Torrington is Harwinton, where you’ll find Harwinton Recreation Area. This popular spot for dog owners has several trails for the two of you to explore together. There’s also a spot where your dog can go for a dip in the pond within the park. Harwinton Recreation Area spans over 90 acres, so there’s plenty of room for your pup to run around and get in his exercise. If you want to make a day of it, bring along a doggy bag and eat in the covered picnic area. A leash is required at all times, in all sections of the park.
If you’re looking for more places to dine with your four-legged friend, head to nearby Litchfield, located about 10 minutes away from Torrington. DiFranco’s Restaurant and Pizzeria has plenty of outdoor, dog-friendly tables, and this restaurant is a local favorite! Along with pizza, DiFranco’s also served steak, seafood, and more. Litchfield Saltwater Grille serves up delicious American dishes fresh off the grill, including fresh seafood, and they also offer outdoor, dog-friendly seating when the weather is nice. Make sure to bring a leash, as one is required at both establishments. Good behavior is also required.
