“I look forward to meeting you and your pups! :)”

Hi there, dog owners! My name is Kylee (please excuse the different profile title, it has to use my legal name). I'm 26 and a college student whose two favorite things are animals and the outdoors. So when I'm walking your dog I'm not just working, I'm having a great time! I was raised with three dogs so I have lots of experience, but I haven't been able to have one of my own since starting school. Feel free to contact me with any questions, I look forward to meeting you and your pups!

Dog Walking in Wallingford

Located 23 miles southwest of the state capital of Hartford, Wallingford is a picturesque town that’s home to several parks, trails, and historic and architecturally significant houses. A furrific place to live or visit, Wallingford welcomes dogs to many of its well-known attractions. There are five veterinary hospitals caring for the town’s animals.

The Bert & Harry Subkowsky Bark Park is the place to be if you’re a dog in Wallingford. Started by the Wallingford Dog Lovers Association, this fenced dog park features separate areas for small and large dogs, lots of benches, and some picnic tables. Dog waste bags and water bowls are also provided, but you need to bring your own water.

Once Fido has run off all his energy, stop by The Eatery or Pure Alchemy to grab a bite to eat. Both are a few minutes’ drive from the Bert & Harry Subkowsky Bark Park, and welcome pets at outdoor tables when the weather allows it.

If you’re looking to unwind while in town, head to Gouveia Vineyards or Paradise Hills Vineyard for some wine. Both places are pup-friendly, so you can sip wines and enjoy beautiful views with Fido by your side.

Come experience Wallingford’s New England charm with your dog!

Puppers who love their walkies are in for a real treat in Downtown Wallingford. Here, you and Fido can access the Quinnipiac River Linear Trail from Lakeside Park. This mostly paved, 1.25-mile multiuse trail is suitable for walking, biking, and skating, and the best part is, leashed canines are welcome. The Quinnipiac River Linear Trail offers peaceful views of cedar junipers, red maples, red oaks, and its namesake river. You and your pooch will also come across a labyrinth, where you can spend some time in quiet reflection or meditation. As always, clean up after Fido. Dog waste bags are provided at the trailhead, but it’s never a bad idea to bring your own.

Doolittle Park attracts a lot of children and their parents thanks to its woofderful playscape, but it’s also a great place for four-legged members of the family. With plenty of open spaces, trees, and benches, Doolittle Park is an ideal spot for walking and relaxing with Fido. Another gem that can be found in Long Hill is the William D. Bertini Park, which is part of the Tyler Mill Preserve. This 76.5-acre park features a low ropes course and hiking trails of various lengths. The trails, which are pretty secluded, will lead you and Fido through hardwood forests and wetlands, as well as to the Muddy River and Dayton Pond.

There’s plenty of space for Fido to run around in this 26.2-acre park, and picnic tables provide spots to take breaks. Pragemann Park also houses several athletic fields, so you’ll likely see the locals playing softball or soccer while you’re there. After hanging out at the park, take a short drive to the Panera Bread to get some food. This location has seven pet-friendly outdoor tables and a drive-thru window if you don’t want to leave Fido outside when you go in to order.

It has about 11 miles of well-blazed, multiuse trails that meander through woodlands, wetlands, and fields, making it a puptastic spot to enjoy nature with your best pal. The trails are of different lengths and difficulty levels, so there’s something for everyone, and many are loop trails that will bring you and Fido back to where you started. Remember to keep your pooch leashed and clean up after him. Small game hunting is permitted in the preserve on certain days, so check the schedule before going for your safety.

Tranquil and dotted with trees, the Wharton Brook State Park is the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon with your pooch. Share a packed lunch in the picnic areas, go for a leashed walk on the short loop trail, and take photos of your best friend by Allen Brook Pond. The relatively flat trail will take you on an easy hike through the woods, where you might see great blue herons and other animals. One of the state’s designated trout parks, Wharton Brook State Park also offers swimming and fishing. It was originally a traveler’s wayside where motorists would have their cars serviced while having a picnic lunch.
