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.

“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!

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.

Hi! My name is Rachel and I am 24 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.

In the past I worked as a dog walker full time for over a year but recently decided to come back after a knee injury forced me to leave my previous job. My physical therapist said I should be out walking more so I figure dogs would be a great thing to work with again. I am excited to see some of my old friends as well as meet new pups!

Dog Walking in Trumbull

Trumbull is a gorgeous small town that brings in all the charms of New England and its historic heritage, and is seemingly untouched by time itself with many old historical buildings still in place. The town is surrounded by thick forests, making it a popular destination for tourists during the fall. The town also has lots of land dedicated to parks and facilities, with almost all of it being dog-friendly to residential and out-of-town pups.

The town even has its own dog park, known as the Trumbull Dog Park, a massive 10-acre park that's completely fenced-in. The park is one big space, with an agility course and double-gated entrance. Don't forget to bring some water and water bowls before going! The dog park sits inside the larger Indian Ledge Park, a 101-acre area with a large forest section that features trails and a river for fishing. There's also open areas, recreational fields, picnic areas, benches, water fountains, and paved walkways. Fido must remain on a leash outside of the dog park.

The longest and most traveled trail in the city is also dog-friendly, known as the Pequonnock River Trail. The trail starts in the south and extends all the way north 12.7 miles, with trail sections being made from asphalt and crushed stone, and providing access to water fountains and benches for leashed pups.

Not only are there five animals hospitals here, but many other parks and nature trails that will have you and Fido playing the Trumbone in Trumbull!
